With the 2019 Nissan Titan Warrior, Nissan builds a pickup for the American market. Big hood, even bigger doors. Even at first glance, it becomes clear that this pick-up truck has no business on European roads. Not in Japanese either. The 2019 Nissan Titan Warrior comes from the Japanese brand Nissan. However, the pick-up in the US runs in Mississippi from the tapes – and is sold only in North America.

He also belongs with his sweeping body: 5.80 meters in length, 1.91 meters in height and 2.05 meters in width. Large piggeries and a very large honeycomb grid adorn the front.
With the dimensions you would get in Europe during parking in many places a sweat after the other. This will not happen in the rural areas of the USA. Wherever there is space, the Americans park forwards in parking bays. As it should be. Or in the foothills of the Sahara, in the Moroccan Erfoud. Nissan kindly took the pickup there for testing.
The first generation of the Titan was launched in 2004, the current 2015. The model is available as a pick-up with single cabin, Kingcab and double cab. Means: From craftsman to family man with expansive hobbies (or a lot of luggage) is the Nissan Ford-F series competition – after all, the best-selling pick-up in the US. Nissan wants to lure customers with a long warranty – up to 100,000 miles or five years.
Also in the technology of Titan offers a few advantages. 360-degree view with the help of four cameras, reverse assist, blind spot warner and a modern entertainment system. Things that have long been standard in cars, but not in pick-ups. Optionally, there is the titanium with rear-wheel drive or as an all-wheel drive model.
2019 Nissan Titan Warrior Specs – V8 With 395 Horsepower
The heart of the Titan is its engine – and there he remains a typical Ami. Under the huge hood beats a 5.6-liter V8 with 395 hp and 534 Newton meters of torque, the brabbelt shortly after starting in the state pleasantly to himself. With a hard grip we tear down the selector lever of the seven-speed automatic behind the steering wheel until D engages.
A kick on the gas pedal and the 2019 Nissan Titan starts. Not reserved, but quite lively. The V8 builds up to 6,000 rpm before the next gear follows. Hard and direct. The loading area lowers, the front shakes a bit. The gears of the automatic transmission switch quickly for a commercial vehicle, but can also be changed manually via a rocker switch lever.
We are sitting in the Pro 4X model, built specifically for the terrain. Bilstein off-road dampers, all-terrain tires, electronically lockable differentials and a downhill drive help keep you in good shape. The big tires dig through the Sahara. The sand splashes through the wheel arches, the Titan trudges on. We adjust the heated seats of the wide leather seats, it is cold in winter. In the center console of the Titan, we could stow away some drinks or computers – or both, that’s how much space it offers. Also the distance to all sides is typically American lavishly wide.
2019 Nissan Titan MPG
Grippy is the large steering wheel in the hand, requires little power, as well stocked is the power steering, but gives sufficient feedback even in sharp corners. Only the chassis rumbles over the desert floor, strikes with hard bumps through to the spine. A few hundred kilograms of cargo would calm it down now.
But fast driving is not the thing of the Titan anyway, at least not in curves. As a crew cab with a double cabin, he can pack up to 750 kilograms onto the loading area and pull up to 4.6 tons. Out in the prairie quite an argument.
We pay attention to the consumption of the voluminous V8. Is that the drunkard stereotype? The titanium takes an average of 16 liters per 100 kilometers. Who plays a bit in the sand like us, must count on more than 20 liters per 100 kilometers. Alternatively, a 5.0-liter V8 diesel with 310 hp is ready – a little more economical should be the. The Titan is just a very American Japanese.
