Here is a breakdown of the new 2020 Titan and Titan XD pricing. Comparing the Titan to the Titan XD, the XD is approximately $1,700 more.
The 2020 Titan trucks have new exterior styling up front with new headlight design and different grille’s for various trim levels. The tail lights and the tailgate get an update as well.
The interior gets a thorough update with a new digital center gauge screen and an optional 9-inch center infotainment screen. The trucks get standard driver assistance technology suite with adaptive cruiser control and lane departure warning system. The new truck also has a backup collision avoidance system. Overall, the interior is much nicer than it was. It is near where the class-leading Ram truck interiors are.
The 5.6-liter V8 engine remains mostly the same (with a premium fuel rating of 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque). The only engine choice is mated to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission. The previous 7-speed automatic is no more. This is the only engine / transmission combination that is available in the 2020 Titan.
The towing and payload capacities remain mostly the same as well. The maximum payload capacity is 2,450 lbs and the maximum towing stands at 11,040 lbs. The Titan XD has a larger and heavier frame than the regular Titan. It provides for a longer wheelbase, more stability, and helps with higher payload capacity.
The 2020 Nissan Titan XD has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 8,800 lbs. It’s in a weight class that is not rated by the EPA for efficiency. The new 2020 Titan 2WD gets 1 MPG better on the highway and city, but the combined number is still the same 18 MPG. The 2020 Titan 4×4 gets exactly the same MPG ratings as outgoing 2019 models.
