2020 Nissan Titan Performance Review

Scorecard

Performance: 7.3

The 2020 Nissan Titan's standard V8 engine provides good acceleration, while its transmission offers generally smooth shifts. Fuel economy is about average for the class, but towing capacity is low. The Titan earns mixed reviews for its handling and ride capabilities.

  • "The Titan takes its time sending horsepower to the road, and its rear suspension can deliver a choppy ride with an unladen bed. It's not bad — the Nissan is composed going up grades, twisting around corners and stopping with force. It's just not as good as the others (except for the ancient Tundra; it's better than the Tundra)." -- Edmunds
  • "The Titan’s ride quality and dynamics fall mid-pack in the full-size pickup sphere. It doesn’t ride as well as the Ram 1500 or the Ford F-150, but it’s smoother than the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra or the Toyota Tundra. Body motions and body roll are well controlled." -- Autoblog
  • "The Titan still employs hydraulic steering, though it doesn't deliver particularly good road feel (not that any pickup truck does). The Titan's ride can't match the comfort of the best in the business. … There's enough bump and jiggle to remind you that you're driving a pickup truck, but not so much that you'll regret buying one." -- Automobile Magazine

Acceleration and Power

The Nissan Titan comes standard with a 5.6-liter V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard. This powertrain combination generally feels muscular and provides smooth and steady acceleration.

Critics generally agree that the transmission helps deliver timely and refined shifts, but a few note that downshifts could be better executed.

The 2020 Titan gets about average fuel economy for the full-size pickup truck class. With standard rear-wheel drive, it returns an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Four-wheel-drive models get 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

  • "Nissan's upgraded V-8 does not disappoint. It delivers muscular acceleration with a pleasing low-rpm growl and an aggressive yowl at full tilt. The nine-speed automatic delvers (sic) smooth upshifts, but downshifts—part- or full-throttle—are a mess. The gearbox hesitates, lurches, and tries two or three different gears before it finally settles on the right one." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "The updated V8 and a new, nine-speed automatic transmission work together really well. The Titan is quick off the line and has plenty of midrange punch. The transmission never hunts for the right gear, quickly and eagerly upshifting and downshifting based on your throttle inputs. A burbly V8 noise makes its way into the cabin, with little road or wind noise to interfere with that great sound." -- CNET
  • "Behind the wheel, the Titan quickly grows on you. Its powerful 5.6-liter V8 engine is proven and packs upgraded power over the previous version. It has no trouble hustling up to speed or hauling heavy loads. The new nine-speed automatic transmission, while not super fast in its shifts, is nice and smooth." -- Edmunds

Handling and Braking

Critics are mixed on the Titan's handling and ride capabilities. Some think that the ride is comfortable and the handling decent, while others note that the ride isn't as plush as it is in rivals and that the Titan is hard to maneuver. Steering is on the heavier side.

  • "Altogether, the 2020 Nissan Titan offers respectable ride and handling characteristics for a full-size truck." -- Autotrader
  • "It feels every bit as large on the road as it is, the steering is rather heavy and uncommunicative, and its ride on the 20-inch wheels of the examples we drove, while reasonably compliant, was less refined and controlled over rough pavement than most of its domestic peers, particularly the cushy Ram 1500's." -- Car and Driver
  • "The old truck's smooth ride and precise steering both carry over to make this a more complete truck. Steering effort is heavier than other trucks, but it fits the Titan's macho personality." -- Motor Trend
