2022 marked the launch of the 2022 Nissan Titan, and enthusiasts and new fans alike are wondering what to expect from the new 2022 design. What is the current car climate? What type of engine does it have? How much will the new Nissan Titan be sold for? From what we know, the 2022 Nissan Titan is a competent and capable full-size pickup with its perks. Let’s take a closer look at this truck and the updated features it comes with this year.
Is the Nissan Titan Being Redesigned?
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2022 Nissan Titan is not being redesigned any time soon. The main reason behind this is that this new Nissan Titan was just recently redesigned with modern upgrades in 2020. Some of the upgrades included in the Nissan Titan include a 9-inch touchscreen display, Android Auto, enhanced room interior design, and Apple CarPlay. Moreover, the redesigns featured in the 2020 Nissan Titan also include a number of essential driver and passenger safety features like lane departure and emergency braking warnings. The 2022 Nissan Titan comes in two color variants; the Crew Cab and King Cab. Both design options – Crew Cab or King Cab – are modified to feel quieter and nicer. If you opt for the Titan Cab S trim, you will get a spray-on bed liner and receiver hitch. A Titan Convenience package in the 2022 Nissan Titan comes with a remote start, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a large 9-Inch touchscreen display. The Nissan Titan comes as a standard rear-wheel drive, but you can get yourself the four-wheel-drive instead at an additional charge.
The new 2022 Nissan Titan comes with numerous exciting standard features and updated optional packages. The upcoming SV now features a Convenience package as a standard that was previously optional. In addition to its updated built-in navigation, this package consists of a power-adjustable driver’s seat, remote start, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, heated front seats, and many more premium features.
Engine, Performance, and Transmission
Unlike the powertrains usually available on lightweight competitors, the Nissan Titan comes fitted with transmission and single-engine combo. It has a 5.6L V-8 engine that produces an impressive 400hp and 413 lb-ft of torque, complemented by a 9-speed automatic transmission. However, the Titan’s handling and steering abilities are not as efficient as those of its rivals, although it has impressive stopping power. Like the Titan XD, the Nissan Titan features the same cabs among other vital components, with each having its own unique suspensions and chassis.
Cargo, Interior, and Comfort
The Titan’s interior is lavishly fitted with a serene cabin and its standard set of perfectly comfy Zero Gravity front seats. However, it contains dull materials and inadequate plastic components, and the Crew Cab rear-seat legroom is ranked the last among its rivals. The 2022 Nissan Titan stands out when it comes to cargo control. This is thanks to a spring-assisted tailgate installed in every model that is innovative and easy to use. The main downside of its ample interior storage capacity is the difficulty in finding storage spots for smaller items. Its in-bed cargo boxes also have the least amount of cargo space compared to rivals.
Connectivity and Infotainment
Every Titan model comes fitted with several exciting features like an Android Auto capability, Apple CarPlay, and an 8-9-inch touchscreen display unit. Both of Titan’s interfaces feature the updated version of the NissanConnect infotainment software, which helps provide a more up-to-date user experience. Additionally, the truck comes fitted with a powerful Fender audio system, wireless charging for smartphones, a mobile hotspot, and numerous charging ports.
In addition to standard driver-assistance technology, the 2022 Nissan Titan comes with various safety features, such as;
- A unique motion detector system
- A 360-degree surveillance camera
- Adaptive cruise control
- Automated emergency braking system
- Blind-spot monitoring
- Rear cross-traffic alert
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the 2022 Nissan Titan a star rating of four out of a possible five. Additionally, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has recorded and published the official crash-test results for the Nissan Titan.
Real-World MPG and Fuel Economy
This four-wheel drive is estimated to earn up to 21 mpg while on the highway and 16 mpg on the rear-drive version while driving in the city. In contrast, the Titan Pro-4X model has estimates of up to 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. EPA’s website has tested and published more details about the Nissan Titan’s fuel economy.
Payload and Towing Capacity
The Titan’s maximum torque strength and payload capacity are ranked at the bottom of the class. However, an overall towing capacity of 9660 pounds is adequate for most users.
Price and Availability
The official price of the new 2022 Nissan Titan has yet to be announced, but it is more likely to be sold at an average price of $37,000 for the King cab and an additional $3,000 for the Crew cab. The platinum crew cab is most certainly the ideal choice for you if you are looking for luxury in your Nissan Titan. On average, it is sold at $60,000. You should note that all Nissan Titans come with an extra delivery charge to the total price of the pickup since you will require delivery services.
The new Nissan Titan is arguably the best pick-up in its class, with the best powertrain and limited warranties. However, it has no complimentary scheduled maintenance, which somewhat undermines its otherwise comprehensive roadside-assistance protection coverage. The coverage entails:
- No complimentary scheduled maintenance
- Limited 5-year warranty or 100,000 miles
- A 5-year powertrain warranty or 100,000 miles
Although the new 2022 Nissan Titan is quite different from its predecessor – the 2021 MT-09 – it can be generally described as a perfectly updated and comfortable pickup truck. The Titan comes with various exciting features, including a 5.6L V-8 engine with a torque strength of up to 413lb-ft and an improved interior design. It entered major dealing stores in the fall of 2021.
