2015 Nissan Titan Overview

Is the 2015 Nissan Titan a Good Used Truck?

No, the 2015 Titan is not a good used truck. Nearly every rival in the class has more available powertrains, better fuel economy, and a higher towing capacity. They also offer higher quality interior materials along with more advanced features.

Used 2015 Nissan Titan Performance and Interior

The Titan has only one available powertrain: a 317-horsepower V8 mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Most competitors offer more powertrains to choose from to match your needs. The V8 engine is very thirsty, pulling the Titan to the bottom of the class when it comes to fuel economy. The Titan only gets 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway, which is well below the gas mileage earned by most competitors. You can tow up to 9,500 pounds with the Titan, though many rivals have higher towing capacities. It’s available with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The Titan’s ride lacks the composure of its rivals, all of which were more recently updated than the Titan. However, its handling is among the nimblest in the class.

While some competitors feel like luxury vehicles inside, the Titan is decidedly more low class. The cabin looks and feels outdated, with cheap plastics covering most surfaces, even in more expensive trims. A front bench seat comes standard, and it's not as comfortable as the available captain's chairs. King (extended) Cab models have very little rear-seat legroom. Crew Cab models have more back-seat space, but the cushion doesn't provide much support.

Like many full-size pickup trucks, the base Titan S doesn't have many standard features – only a basic audio system. There are more tech features available, including a 5.8-inch touch-screen infotainment system, Bluetooth, smartphone integration, a Rockford Fosgate audio system, navigation, and a rear-seat entertainment system. The touch screen is smaller than those in many rivals, and it isn't as easy to use as most competitor’s systems. The center stack controls are too far from the driver, and they're hard to read.

How Safe Is the Titan?

Other full-size pickup trucks earned similar crash test ratings.

A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are the only safety features available in the Titan. Some rivals offer more advanced safety systems, like forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.

Should I Consider Another Used Titan?

If you need a longer bed with a Crew Cab, you'll need to buy an older Titan, as 2015 Titan Crew Cab models only came with the short bed, which is about 5.5 feet in length. Otherwise, there are few differences between the 2015 Titan and models from previous years. The 2015 model marked the end of the generation, with a redesigned model hitting the market for the 2017 model year.

Which Used Nissan Titan Is Right for Me?

Buyers looking for a simple work truck are fine sticking to the base S trim or the SV model, which adds a few features like cruise control, an overhead console, and remote keyless entry. If you plan to drive the Titan every day, step up to the Pro-4X model, which adds loads of features, including front captain's chairs, an infotainment system, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and smartphone integration. The top-of-the-line SL trim has luxury features like leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a Rockford Fosgate audio system, and navigation.

Many Nissan dealerships offer certified pre-owned Titans. 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 vehicle must pass a 167-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Nissan warranty page carefully.

2015 Nissan Titan and Other Trucks to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Titan or 2015 Ford F-150?

The Ford F-150 is an all-around better pickup than the Titan. It has a range of engines, including a fuel-sipping turbocharged V6 and a brawny V8. The F-150 can tow significantly more than the Titan when properly equipped, and the Ford has a smooth ride. The F-150 has decent materials inside the cabin, and there's ample space for passengers. You can get a significantly more modern and straightforward infotainment system in the F-150, as well as more advanced safety features.

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Titan or 2015 Toyota Tundra?

It's hard to choose between the Titan and the Toyota Tundra because both have similar pros and cons, though the cons outweigh most of the pros. These rivals have composed handling but relatively uncomfortable rides. They both have powerful yet gas-guzzling V8 engines. Inside, they have comfortable seats but low-rent materials. You're better off skipping both the Titan and the Tundra in favor of a higher-rated and better-equipped full-size truck.

Which Is Better: 2015 Nissan Titan or 2015 Ram 1500?

The Ram 1500 is a smarter choice than the Titan. It stands apart in the segment for its cosseting ride quality and first-class interior. The cabin is luxurious, with top-notch materials, a handsome design, and comfortable seats. The Ram 1500's tech features are also great for the class, especially the intuitive infotainment system. All the available powertrains are powerful, and the turbodiesel is fuel-efficient. The Ram can tow more than the Titan but less than other trucks in the class. The Ram also earns a lower safety score than most competitors.
