Strong frame; generous rear-seat legroom; good payload and towing numbers; handles better than most heavy-duty trucks; versatile bed and towing features
Modest power output lags behind Chevy, Ford and Ram; Cummins turbodiesel acceleration feels a bit sluggish; 26-gallon fuel tank could be bigger
The 2019 Titan XD gets a new 7-in touchscreen infotainment setup with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

If you're using a truck to tow, haul and get dirty, we'd go with the SV 4x4 and opt for the three available packages (Convenience, Tow and Utility). Off-roaders should look to the PRO-4X. The Platinum Reserve competes well against Ford's King Ranch and RAM's Laramie Limited, but you should be prepared to pay through the nose. Find a Nissan Titan XD for sale

2019 Ford Super Duty -- Ford's heavy-duty pickup offers more bed, more wheelbase and higher tow ratings than the Titan XD. Plus, its diesel engine delivers 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. Ford's SYNC 3 is also a far better infotainment system than NissanConnect.
Used GMC Sierra Denali HD-- The 2012-2017 GMC Sierra Denali HD offers a choice of powerful gasoline or diesel engines, is loaded with luxury features and will likely cost a lot less than a brand-new SL or Platinum Reserve. Newer versions will also offer GMC's IntelliLink, which is superior to NissanConnect.
