If you’re looking for a heavy hitter in the truck industry, the 2021 Nissan Titan takes the title as “King of the Road” and leads competitors like Chevy, Ram, and Ford. The latest Titan earns high praise for its exceptional capability as well as its suite of safety and tech features, but it doesn’t stop there. The 2021 Titan lives up to its name and raises the bar by offering the most standard power, technology, and safety features in its class. Add in the fact that the Titan is affordably priced at $36,950,* and there’s no question why this road warrior is a best-seller in the Nissan fleet.
What makes the 2021 Titan so special? From the power it packs under the hood to its connectivity, safety, and driver-assist features that are designed to keep you safe and connected when you’re behind the wheel, the Titan has much to offer. Nissan makes buying the Titan an even sweeter deal by adding the best truck warranty in America. With bumper-to-bumper coverage for five years or 100,000 miles, you’ll have all the confidence you need to take the wheel of the Titan and set out on your next adventure with confidence.
The 2021 Titan has the power to handle it all, whether you’re towing a trailer, navigating your daily commute, or venturing off the pavement and down the trail. This capability comes from the Titan’s 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission that deliver 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. What makes this power even more remarkable is the fact that it’s standard across the Titan lineup, which makes the Titan the only truck to offer this level of power.
The Titan’s power makes it a capable hauler and ready for any off-road adventure. When it comes to towing, you can tow up to 9,310 pounds with ease whether you’re behind the wheel of a Titan King Cab or a Titan Crew Cab. Nissan makes towing even easier with tools like the Intelligent Around View Monitor that gives you a complete view around the truck and trailer, as well as guidelines that make hooking up to any trailer a breeze. The Remote Trailer Light Check makes it easy to check the lights on your own since you can activate the tool on your Nissan Intelligent Key and watch as the system cycles through the lights.
Stopping power is always important, but it’s even more significant when you’re hauling a heavy load. To give you confidence when towing, Nissan adds an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller. Mounted on the center dash, the controller lets you adjust or activate the trailer brakes to enhance stability and give you more control over the load. Trailer Sway Control also improves stability while the Tow Mirrors improve your visibility, and Tow-Haul Mode gives you more control over your downhill speed.
When you’re cruising the highway, you can easily hit the trail with any 2021 Titan since Nissan gives you the option to add its exclusive “shift on the fly” four-wheel drive system to every trim. The system gives you quick access to four-wheel drive by putting everything you need within reach. By using a simple knob, you can switch the truck from 4H to 4LO to boost the truck’s power and traction when you’re climbing obstacles like a steep grade or rocky terrain. Of course, the Titan’s ground clearance makes navigating these obstacles easy, especially when the truck is equipped with genuine Nissan accessories like skid plates that protect the Titan’s undercarriage from damage.
You’ll be blown away by the 2021 Titan’s technology that’s designed to keep you connected wherever the road leads. The heart of this technology is found in the 8-inch center infotainment display. You can upgrade the 8-inch display to the larger, 9-inch touchscreen display that offers WXGA resolution, which is a step above high-definition. This crisp display brings the truck to life and gives you access to everything from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to an available Wi-Fi hotspot.
When you’re driving down the road, you’ll have everything you need within eyesight, thanks to the 7-inch programmable driver information display. Larger than most competitors, the display gives you an immediate view of your speed, fuel level, and tire pressure, as well as alerts from tools like Intelligent Driver Alertness and Traffic Sign Recognition. With all the data you need right in front of you, you can keep your eyes and your focus on the road ahead.
The Titan’s technology extends beyond its displays to innovative tech, like NissanConnect and Nissan Concierge. The Nissan Connect system is a suite of convenience and security features that are designed to make your life and work easier when you’re on the road. Through NissanConnect, the Titan delivers over-the-air software updates and gives you remote access to a variety of features like remote start via the app or by using simple voice commands with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
While NissanConnect gives you greater control over your Titan even when you’re away from the truck, Nissan Concierge takes the Titan’s convenience and technology to a new level. The class-exclusive tool gives you 24-hour access to a live concierge assistant at the push of a button inside the vehicle, through the app, or via text or email. Your concierge assistant can help you schedule appointments, make reservations at your favorite restaurant, schedule a wake-up call, or handle personal shopping tasks. Can you name any other truck in its class that comes with a concierge assistant like the Titan?
The 2021 Titan offers the most standard safety features in its class, and that starts with the Nissan Safety Shield 360. This suite of six advanced driver-assist tools sets the stage for innovation and comes standard with Rear Automatic Braking. The other five features include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Automatic Emergency Braking can bring the Titan to a complete stop if a frontal collision with a pedestrian or another vehicle is imminent. Rear Automatic Braking protects the rear of the Titan while the Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert warn you of vehicles in your blind spots or crossing behind the truck. High Beam Assist enhances your visibility by controlling the brightness of your high beams in relation to oncoming traffic.
Nissan raises the bar once again with enhanced features like Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, which is standard and another class-exclusive on the Titan. This feature uses an integrated radar sensor at the front of the truck to monitor the traffic pattern up to two cars ahead. By monitoring speed and distance, the system can alert you when you’re getting too close and, in turn, helps prevent tailgating and potential collisions.
Beyond the Titan’s Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, you can add various driver-assist tools to make your time on the road even safer and more enjoyable for you and your passengers. The Intelligent Around View Monitor gives you a 360-degree view around the truck and makes parking a breeze, especially when navigating a crowded or tight parking space. Intelligent Cruise Control improves traditional cruising by actively monitoring the flow of traffic to maintain the Titan’s distance and speed as needed. You’ll always know the designated speed limit with technology like Traffic Sign Recognition that posts the speed limit on the driver information display.
Intelligent Driver Alertness keeps you alert when you’re in the driver’s seat, while the Rear Door Alert system is designed with your backseat passengers in mind. Working behind the scenes, you’ll benefit from the Titan’s road-gripping Vehicle Dynamic Control technology and Traction Control System that ensure the Titan maintains its grip on the road by applying brake pressure as needed when oversteering or understeering is detected. The Titan, which is equipped with anti-lock brakes, is also designed to brake smarter thanks to the Brake Assist tool that maximizes braking when you’re hauling a heavy load. This is especially important since bringing a truck and trailer to an abrupt stop can be difficult.
