A unique frame, new 9-speed transmission and 400-horsepower Endurance® V8
Helping TITAN XD owners take advantage of its ample towing power3 are a range of available hitches – including an integrated gooseneck hitch engineered into the frame and easily accessible in the bed. The integrated gooseneck hitch includes a plug inside the bed for even greater ease of towing. Among the list of TITAN XD's available towing aids are an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation – checking turn signals, brake lights and running/clearance lights from inside the cab or with the key fob. TITAN XD owners will have a host of tools to assist with trailer hook-ups. This includes an available RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides and Nissan's Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM)4 that provides a composite 'bird's eye' view of the surrounding area from front, rear and side cameras to help with tight parking or even off-roading at low speeds. The system also includes Moving Object Detection (MOD)5, which helps alert the driver to detected moving objects around the vehicle via an on-screen notification and warning chime.
Confident, intelligent towing
The 2020 TITAN XD redesign, like the TITAN, was led by a team at Nissan Design America (NDA) in La Jolla, Calif., and follows the 'Powerful Warrior' design theme. The 'modern armor' design is particularly appropriate for the attitude-heavy TITAN XD with its standard 4-wheel drive and available 20-inch wheels, and two-tone over-fender treatments. Like TITAN, unique grille designs among trim levels give the TITAN XD a higher degree of differentiation among grade levels – allowing for more owner customization straight from the factory. The new interlocking frame grille and surround is designed to convey strength, boldness and precision while enhancing cooling performance for the 5.6-liter V8 engine. Also completely redesigned for 2020 are the front bumper and wheel designs. On PRO-4X models, the first-ever Nissan badge with 'lava red' accents is featured prominently on the grille. The TITAN XD's bold front end includes available LED headlights and 'double boomerang' LED Daytime Running Lights, which add a dramatic high-tech appearance. LED fog lights are also offered. High Beam Assist, which allows drivers to leave the light stalk in high beam position indefinitely without blinding drivers, is standard on all grades and is part of the standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology package. In the rear, new all-LED lighting has been added to the pickup bed, using four light sources for full surround lighting. The rear also includes new LED lights that are designed to convey the look of solid quality and rigid machine structure. The new tailgate finishers, like the grille surrounds, are customized to differentiate grade levels. Just as the grilles feature unique personalities for each trim, TITAN XD PRO-4X features a black finisher, while Platinum Reserve utilizes a Satin Chrome finisher. There are four new TITAN XD exterior colors – Red Alert, Baja Storm, Cardinal Red Metallic (premium color) and Super Black. Carryover colors include Brilliant Silver Metallic, Gun Metallic, Super Black, Pearl White TriCoat (premium color), Glacier White and Deep Blue Pearl. Color availability is matched specifically to model grades. In addition, the Platinum Reserve grade is available in four two-tone painted over-fender treatments, while PRO-4X features standard semi-gloss dark painted over-fenders.

Interior comfort is another leading factor in why customers choose TITAN and TITAN XD. For 2020, commanding technology and premium comfort is abound throughout the new TITAN XD interior, which features robust construction, crafted detailing and premium finishes. TITAN XD PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve models include a new Integrated Command Center with 9.0-inch WXGA touchscreen that features WXGA resolution. Like on the 2020 TITAN, it serves as the gateway to the enhanced next-generation connectivity that includes standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The new internal WiFi router allows passengers to stream their favorite content (WiFi subscription required, sold separately). Up to seven devices can be connected. The 2020 TITAN and TITAN XD offer the new Nissan Concierge, which provides owners 24-hour access to a team of professional, live assistants at the push of a button. Nissan Concierge can help with tasks such as appointment scheduling, wake up calls, restaurant reservations and personal shopping. The next-generation NissanConnect® allows over-the-air (OTA) software updates, new safety and security features, HD Traffic and Google Places/Search6. Also available on the 2020 TITAN XD is NissanConnect Services, a suite of convenience and security features that provide assistance when owners need it most – including remote access features and emergency response services. NissanConnect Services can be accessed from inside the vehicle, on a computer, on a smartphone or smartwatch app and with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. The 2020 TITAN XD offers a new, innovative flexible smartphone holder/charging system that allows drivers to keep cell phones steady and secure while driving. Also standard on every trim level is a 7.0-inch programmable driver information display, which helps ensure that customers can access meaningful vehicle information easily and clearly. TITAN XD SL and Platinum Reserve models are available with a new Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof, the first offered on TITAN XD and one of the largest in the segment measuring over three-feet square. Inspiring 'the emotion of a live performance,' the 2020 TITAN and TITAN XD Fender Premium Audio System includes 12 speakers with an amplifier power of 485 watts through nine channels. For a more precise immersive performance, the Fender Premium Audio system incorporates Panasonic's proprietary Acoustic Motion Control™ technology, which helps reduce vibration in the individual speakers to provide an immersive and detailed sound unlike any in its class. The premium audio system is available on PRO-4X and standard on SL and Platinum Reserve TITAN XD models. Among the 2020 TITAN XD's first-class interior accommodations are front and rear Zero Gravity seats, Nissan's innovative design that helps maximize posture positioning for enhanced comfort during long distance driving. For 2020, TITAN XD's interior also features premium seat and trim materials customized for each grade level. Interior storage has also been enhanced for the new model year, including front and rear door storage capacity and additional assist grips. The TITAN XD PRO-4X includes a range of custom interior accents such as stain-resistance seat coverings with vinyl bolsters and PRO-4X embroidery, leather-wrapped steering wheel with unique contrasting stitching, metallic instrument panel finishers and black headliner.
