The 2024 Nissan Titan Fails as Both an Old and New Age Truck
With pickup truck options on the market from Ford, Chevrolet, Ram, GMC, and Toyota, to name a few, there are a ton of pickups to choose from. Sadly, the Nissan Titan, a truck that is soon to be discontinued, fails in nearly every way. It fails to appeal to the old-school truck owner who wants to own a sturdy work truck. It also fails as a new-age truck, lagging in comfort and technology.
Here is everything you need to know about the 2024 Nissan Titan, and why it simply fails to deliver as a pickup truck in today’s market.
What you need to know about the 2024 Nissan Titan
The 2024 Nissan Titan is Nissan’s full-size pickup truck. This truck is seated above the Nissan Frontier in power and features, and its main competitors consist of the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado, to name a few.
According to Car and Driver, the 2024 Titan starts at $47,665 MSRP. For this price, customers get a full-size pickup truck with a V8 engine as standard equipment. This engine is paired with an automatic transmission and produces around 400 horsepower.
For 2024, the Titan is entering its final model year of production. With this discontinuation announcement, Nissan is already thinning the model lineup by dropping the base S model from the lineup, offering the Nissan Titan SV as the new base model.
A Bronze Edition trim level is also available, which takes the SV Titan and adds some visual flair to commemorate the ending of the Titan’s production.
How the 2024 Titan fails as an old-school pickup truck
Many consumers still love having an old-school pickup truck in their driveway. With vinyl floors, a huge towing capacity, and rugged bodywork, old-school base model trucks are tough and built to last.
Sadly, the 2024 Nissan Titan fails as an old-school pickup truck. The 2024 Titan does come standard with a powerful 400 horsepower V8 engine; however, it has the lowest towing capacity out of any of its competitors. The Titan also has fairly low ground clearance, making it a not-so-great option for off-roading.
Speaking of work, this pickup truck does not come in a work truck trim. Nearly every pickup truck on the market has a basic base model option available except for the Titan. Starting around $47,000, the base model Chevy Silverado starts at under $10,000 less than the Titan. The Titan just fails as a proper old-school work truck.
How the truck fails as a new-age pickup truck
Not only is the 2024 Nissan Titan falling behind the pack as a workhorse truck, but it is also falling behind its competitors as well as a new-age, modern truck. In this new age of pickup trucks, it’s not uncommon to see a truck fully decked out in a leather interior with a ton of technology throughout the cabin.
The Titan, on the other hand, does not offer these features. When it comes to technology, one of the largest touchscreens in the pickup truck market is the Rivian Center Touchscreen, which is a whopping 16 inches. The Titan’s screen options max out at nine inches.
The Nissan Titan has a disappointing interior as well. Of course, on the higher end of the lineup, the interior is solid and the seats are comfortable, but this truck is straight out of 2015.
It is outdated, expensive for what it is, and fails to appeal to anyone. The Ram 1500, Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, and even the luxurious GMC Sierra 1500 all offer more features for a much lower price.
