2014 Nissan Titan Overview

Is the 2014 Nissan Titan a Good Used Truck?

The Titan doesn't impress enough in any one area for it to be considered a good truck. Unlike the Titan, other full-size pickups have great safety or reliability scores and offer upscale cabins. Rivals also have more features and higher towing and hauling capacities than the Titan.

Used 2014 Nissan Titan Performance and Interior

The only engine available in the 2014 Nissan Titan is a V8 that produces 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard, and you can find Titans with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. When properly equipped, the Titan has a towing capacity of 9,500 pounds. Fuel economy estimates are 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway with rear-wheel drive, and 12/17 mpg city/highway with four-wheel drive.

Whether pulling off the line, accelerating at highway speeds, or hauling a full load, the Titan's V8 delivers a good amount of power. However, this sole offering is in contrast to rivals that have other engine options, such as diesel variants with more torque. The Titan has a smooth ride quality and somewhat nimble handling for a big pickup.

If you're looking for a capable off-roader, check out the Titan Pro-4X. It comes with upgraded shocks, off-road tires, skid plates, and a locking rear differential. All 4WD Titan models include a shift-on-the-fly system, enabling you to easily transfer between driving modes.

The 2014 Titan seats five or six, depending on the presence of a front bench seat. Some models may have premium cloth or leather-appointed seats, as well as heated and/or power-adjustable front seats. The first row has plenty of head- and legroom, though the bucket seats provide more comfort and support than the standard bench. Crew Cab models have more rear passenger space, but the rear doors in regular King Cab models open to almost 180 degrees to improve passenger entry and exit. The Titan has two sets of lower anchors and three upper tether anchors for securing child safety seats.

Overall, the Titan's interior design and quality doesn’t match that of rivals. Hard plastic surfaces are abundant, and there are few standard features of note. Even things like power windows and locks only came standard in base-trim Crew Cab models. Other available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a USB port, a Rockford Fosgate premium sound system, satellite radio, navigation, Bluetooth, a DVD entertainment system, two 120-volt outlets, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, a moonroof, and a spray-on bedliner. Unfortunately, some physical controls on the dashboard are hard to reach and aren’t marked very clearly.

Should I Consider Another Used Titan?

The 2014 Titan is part of the truck's first generation, which spans the 2004 through 2015 model years. There were few major changes over the years prior to 2014, so you may be able to get a similar but less expensive truck by shopping for an older model. However, the Pro-4X trim was restyled in 2013, so you may not want to look too far back if you’re shopping for that model. You'll want to stick with a 2014 or older model if you want a longer bed or a Crew Cab, as those were discontinued in 2015.

Which Used Nissan Titan Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Nissan Titan can be found in many different configurations. Picking the right version will depend on what you prioritize, such as seating capacity, bed or cab size, drivetrain, and features. The Titan is available in King Cab and Crew Cab body styles, with rear-wheel or four-wheel drive, in short- and long-wheelbase versions, and with three different bed lengths. Trim levels include S, SV, Pro-4X, and SL. In terms of features, the Nissan Titan SV is a good value. It's the first trim level to offer many conveniences, such as captain's chairs, Bluetooth, satellite radio, cruise control, and a rearview camera.

You may also want to consider a certified pre-owned Titan. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Nissan extends the original new-car warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. To become certified pre-owned, each Nissan vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2014 Nissan Titan and Other Trucks to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Titan or 2014 Toyota Tundra?

The 2014 Toyota Tundra is a better pickup than the Titan, but not by much. With a refresh for 2014, the Tundra boasts good-quality cabin materials and some impressive standard features. These include Bluetooth, a rearview camera, a USB port, and a touch-screen infotainment system, along with things you'd expect from a modern vehicle like power locks and windows. While the Tundra beats the Titan inside, the Nissan has the edge in performance. That's because the Tundra doesn't ride as smoothly as other trucks in the class, and its standard V6 engine isn't as capable as its available V8 options. Both trucks have the same reliability score, and the Tundra has low crash test ratings for the class. However, the Titan underwent limited crash tests. 

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Titan or 2014 Ford F-150?

The 2014 Ford F-150 is a good truck – and certainly one worth buying over the Titan. The F-150 has good safety scores and typically costs thousands of dollars less than the Titan. A lineup of powerful engines, including a turbocharged V6, gives the F-150 solid performance. It can also tow more than 11,000 pounds. The F-150's lower trims match the Titan's underwhelming interior qualities and limited standard features, though both markedly improve in the Ford's higher trims. The F-150's dashboard layout is more intuitive than the Titan's, though its optional infotainment system is harder to use. The Ford's spacious and comfortable seating accommodations give it a leg up on the Titan.

Which Is Better: 2014 Nissan Titan or 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500?

The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 tops this class of pickups because of its good reliability rating (four out of five) and solid interior and performance scores. Paired with solid safety scores, the Silverado makes as good a daily driver as it does a workhorse. It can tow up to 12,000 pounds, yet it still delivers a comfortable ride and balanced handling. Even in lower trims, cabin materials are of decent quality. Higher trims feel more luxurious. The Silverado's available infotainment and navigation systems are a breeze to use, and there are still physical buttons for climate and audio adjustments.
