Titan XD is a truck slightly larger than the full-size pickups. However, it is smaller than heavy-duty models. We can say it has its own class without true competitors. Some while ago, we could hear rumors about the Ram 2000. But so far, there are no such moves by the FCA. So, the new 2020 Nissan Titan XD will have a clear path for luring buyers who want more from full-size, but not as much as HD segment is offering.
After updates, the 2020 Nissan Titan XD will still use the same drivetrains. The highlight of the model is definitely a 5.0-liter turbodiesel engine. Besides that, the company could finally launch the Warrior version into production. Fans can’t wait to see it after the presentation of the stunning concept. The redesign of the 2020 Titan XD brings some design solutions we can find on Warrior, but it is still not the same.
2020 Nissan Titan XD Specs
Under the bonnet of the 2020 Nissan Titan XD will be a 5.6-liter V8 petrol engine. This drivetrain is capable to burst 390 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is its pair that sends power to either 4×2 or 4×4 setup. Maximum towing capacity of this version is 11,200 pounds.
If you need an extra 1,000 lbs for towing, then it is better to select a diesel engine. A 5.0-liter turbodiesel is also more efficient. Well, the power drops to 310 horsepower, but the engine adds a lot more torque – 555 lb-ft. Also, it replaces an eight-speed gearbox with a six-pace Aisin transmission, that can smoother distribute so much twisting power.
2020 Nissan Titan Warrior
The 2020 Nissan Titan Warrior concept is based on the XD truck. Well, it uses the same chassis and drivetrain – turbodiesel one. The company upgrades it with variety of features that will boost off-road capabilities. For example, there is a kind of armor this version is carrying. Sharper edges, air vents, skid plates, unique exhaust system… these parts are both stylish and functional. Also, the interior expects some upgrades to make a ride cozier. Sporty seats and features will definitely help. The same turbodiesel engine will get a new configuration with special suspension, shocks, and control arms.
2020 Nissan Titan XD Changes
The new 2020 Nissan Titan XD will bring mostly everything the 2019 Titan is getting. That is a new premium audio system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, larger displays. Also, there are some minor updates within the color palette and upper trim levels.
The new 2020 Nissan Titan XD will appear later this year. The Japanese company is not preparing the show for its release since no big changes are coming. They will keep it for the next-gen which will arrive in a couple of years from now. The pricing of the 2020 Titan XD will start at $33,000. If you want a diesel powertrain, then you must add about $5,000. King cab increases the price by $3k and crew cab by $5,000. Platinum trim with a turbodiesel engine and 4×4 configuration can reach $65,000.
