Performance Specifications

The 2018 Nissan Titan is powered by a high-performance 5.6-L DOHC V8 engine that manufactures a whopping 394 lb-ft of torque. This engine, which works alongside a 7-speed automatic transmission, also produces a best-in-class standard horsepower1of 390.

Standardly, this powertrain is paired with a rear-wheel drivetrain. However, for more power and control on and off the highway, you can swap the standard drivetrain out for an available switch-operated 2-speed transfer case 4-wheel drive system.

Take off-road performance up one more notch still with the available TITAN PRO-4X Ultimate Off-Road Performance package. This package bundles Bilstein® off-road performance shocks, enhanced ground clearance, and an advanced 4-wheel drive system, so you can conquer every kind of road condition.

The inside of the 2018 Nissan Titan sports just as much capability as its powertrain and powerful exterior features. The interior of the Titan can be equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen Nissan Navigation System that provides easy-to-follow directions to all of your destinations as well as live traffic and weather updates, thanks to the SiriusXM® Traffic and Travel Link features.

This multi-faceted infotainment system doesn’t stop there, though. The Titan’s infotainment system also provides a variety of hands-free capabilities via Siri® Eyes Free, Bluetooth® hands-free phone calling, a hands-free text messaging assistant, and Nissan Voice Recognition for both audio and navigation.

One additional feature this infotainment system sports is an Intelligent Around View® Monitor. Using this feature, you can get a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of your vehicle’s surroundings right on the infotainment screen.
