Benefits of Driving a 2012 Nissan Titan Truck

Starting under $30,000, the Titan features a 5.6L V8 engine that makes 317 hp and 385 ft-lb of torque. Hauling capacity includes a 2,000-lb payload and 9,500-lb tow rating. Titans offer seating for up to six adults in comfort, and the big truck returns 13 mpg city, 18 mpg on the highway for the 2-wheel drive model.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the Nissan Titan full-size pickup gets only a few changes from the 2011 model. The SV model gets a new Sport Appearance Package that includes 20-inch wheels, a 3.36 axle ratio, an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, fog lamps and a number of other interior and exterior trim details.

  • fully boxed frame
  • wide array of configurations
  • massive towing and payload capabilities

Model Review

With two cab sizes, four bed sizes, four trim levels and a long list of options and available packages, there are dozens of ways to configure the Titan to fit the job at hand. Every Titan gets the 317-hp 5.6L V8 engine and a 5-speed transmission, and it's capable of running on E85 bio-ethanol fuel. Front air bags and anti-lock brakes are also standard.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
