And a slight price increase across the range.
Nissan recently released the details of the 2023 Nissan Titan, and the most crucial bit of news is a slight price increase.
The 2022 Titan range started with the King Cab S 4x2 with an MSRP of $38,810, while the 2023 range kicks off with the same model in the same specification, but the MSRP has increased to $39,700. The price of a mid-spec Crew Cab SV has increased from $47,220 to $48,190. At the top end, the Titan XD Platinum Reserve Crew Cab 4x4 has shot up from $63,840 to $65,070.
Across the entire range, you're looking at an average increase of around $1,000. The Titan is slightly more expensive than rivals like the Ford F-150 and the Toyota Tundra, but it does have a lot going for it.
Nissan claims its naturally aspirated 5.6-liter V8 Endurance motor is the most powerful in its class, producing 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Technically, Nissan is correct. An F-150 with the standard Coyote V8 produces 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, while Toyota's new twin-turbo V6 produces 389 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. In short, the Titan has more torque than the Ford and more power than the Toyota. The Titan offers an available maximum towing capacity of 9,323 pounds and a maximum payload capacity of 1,697 lbs when properly equipped.
Nissan does hit back hard with a rock-solid warranty. Every Titan comes standard with a class-leading five-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
The Titan also boasts a high specification level across the board. All models are equipped with Nissan's Safety Shield 360, which consists of automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, high beam assist, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear automatic braking.
On 2023 models, wireless Apple CarPlay is standard on Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve models, and a new Midnight Edition Package is available for the Crew Cab SV.
The Midnight Package gives the Titan a more aggressive exterior thanks to a black exterior and interior trim and a set of black 20-inch alloy wheels. It also gets a gloss black front grille surround, full LED headlights, and black tailgate badges. This new Midnight Package is a steal at just $1,990.
