The Nissan Titan ends its 20-year run in 2024. What do our experts think of the final Titan? We look at powertrain, technology, and more in our review.  

What’s New for the 2024 Nissan Titan?

A Bronze Edition joins the 2024 Nissan Titan lineup with 20-inch bronze rims, but the bigger news is the discontinuation of the S trim level. This means the base price is up some $5,000 for 2024, which brings up the biggest news of all – the discontinuation of the Titan for good.

Nissan has announced this will be the final year of its full-size truck efforts due to poor sales. It’s not too surprising as the Titan has struggled to compete against the entrenched domestics for the 20 years it has been on sale. So, let’s look at what you can expect from the last Nissan Titan.

2024 Nissan Titan Powertrain 8/10 

2024 Nissan Titan 5.6L V8 - carsforsale.com
2024 Nissan Titan 5.6L V8 - carsforsale.com

Every 2024 Nissan Titan, including the semi-heavy-duty XD models, is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.6L V8 that generates 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission routes power to the rear wheels with 4WD a roughly $3,200 option across the board. Big gas guzzling V8s are the classic full-size pickup power plant, but these days most competitors offer at least one fuel-efficient option.

On that note, the 2024 Titan is rated for 18 mpg combined whether you go for RWD or 4WD, a figure that drops by 1 mpg for the Pro-4X model. As for towing, the standard Titan tops out at 9,290 pounds or 11,050 pounds for XD models with a gooseneck hookup. This may be enough for some, but even the Titan XD can’t keep up with a 2024 Ford F-150’s 13,500-pound max tow rating.

2024 Nissan Titan Interior 7.5/10

Nearly every 2024 Titan is a crew cab with four doors and a 5.5-foot bed. SV models offer an extended, or King, cab with a 6.5-foot bed. XD models measure 15 inches longer than standard Titans enabling the longer cargo bed and a crew cab configuration. However, rear legroom tops out at 38 inches regardless of Titan trim, which is quite a bit less than the 45 inches offered by a Ram 1500 that we compare to the Titan here.

The upholstery in the Nissan Titan ranges from cloth to leather. Interior options include heated and ventilated seats and a panoramic moonroof. SV models offer a front bench seat that allows for 6 passengers, but the rest of the lineup uses Nissan’s lauded Zero Gravity bucket seats up front, trimming occupancy to 5. As for interior storage, the center front console can swallow a small laptop and the rear bench seat flips up or folds down to help with bulky items.

2024 Nissan Titan Technology Features 7.25/10

2024 Nissan Titan - nissanusa.com

As we discuss in this new vs. used Titan comparison, the pre-2020 trucks came with a 7-inch infotainment screen. Today, 8 inches is standard with 9-inch screens included on all but SV models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are lineup standard as is a Wi-Fi hotspot. Audiophiles should look for a package or Premium Reserve model for the upgraded 12-speaker audio system by Fender.

On the safety front, Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 suite of driver aids brings forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control to every 2024 Titan. Other standard systems include automatic high beams and a driver alertness monitor. Though the 2024 model has not yet been tested, the NHTSA gave the 2023 Titan a 4-star overall crash-test rating.

2024 Nissan Titan Overall Value 7/10

Considering how poorly the 2024 Titan stacks up against the competition, there’s no reason to move beyond the base SV model. It’s no cheap date as the 2024 Ford F-150 has an entry price of more than $9,000 lower, but that’s for a work truck, so you are getting a higher level of amenities in the base Titan.

As well, Nissan includes basic and powertrain warranty coverage for 5 years or 100,000 miles, which is better than what other pickup makers offer. However, there is no complimentary maintenance as part of Nissan’s warranty.

In a vacuum, the 2024 Nissan Titan has plenty going for it – a big V8, plenty of driver-assistance aids, and Nissan’s Zero Gravity seats. But when you put it up against every other full-size pickup truck, it’s not a pretty picture. Ford, Chevy, Ram, and Toyota have continued to update their respective pickups over the years.

This has led to competitors with more power, more interior space, more towing capacity, more technology, more amenities, and, well, you get the idea. And if there’s one thing buyers of full-size pickup trucks like, it’s more of everything. So, unfortunately, the 2024 Nissan Titan represents something of an unworthy final chapter in the automaker’s full-size truck history.
