The half-ton pickup segment has never been so crowded with such a great number of established models. One such a model is for sure the upcoming 2019 Nissan Titan Diesel. This pickup is large, the interior is comfortable and the exterior looks rugged and aggressive.
This light-duty pickup comes with the gasoline and diesel powertrains, a couple of trim levels and few body styles. The 2019 Nissan Titan will arrive with a couple of changes such as new Midnight Edition package, new exterior paints, and slightly different exterior. Just like every other pickup, Titan also has pros and cons, so let’s find out more about it.
2019 Nissan Titan Diesel exterior design and trims
As we wrote, the 2019 Nissan Titan Diesel comes only with slight exterior changes. Changes are aesthetical, but not in the way you think it is. This pickup gets a new Midnight Edition package, couple of new exterior colors and has grown in size a little bit. The all-new Titan will arrive as a 0.4 inch longer and 1.2 inches wider pickup, however, the styling cues are intact.
Generally, Titan grabs attention wherever it goes, and this model is a real stand out in the crowd. Headlights up front are conservative as before, and most of the design looks more like a previous generation than the next one.
Midnight Edition package is new, it is available with the SV and SL trims and it adds unique badging, dark inserts, 20-inch wheels, and body-color bumpers. 18-inch wheels are standard and new exterior paints are Gun Metallic, Pearl White, and Magnetic Black. If we compare this year model with the current one, there is clearly much more features added in the new one.
2019 Nissan Titan Diesel interior is comfy and good looking
The interior looks pleasing and comfortable. Some of the materials inside the cabin are premium, but if you want a real upscale interior, you’ll have to opt for the higher trim level. The base model of the 2019 Nissan Titan Diesel is pleasing, but it lacks more nice touches as the cabin is packed with the plastics materials. The rear legroom is not that ample; however, the seats are comfy.
The Midnight Package adds a charcoal interior trim and it looks great. Top-range Platinum Reserve model comes with zero-gravity leather seats and plenty of wood surfaces, but those touches are perhaps too expensive. The interior generally stays the same, and we’d like to see some redesign of the features such as dashboard and center stack.
2019 Nissan Titan Diesel engine specs
While the base engine is a 5.6-liter V8 gasoline unit, the optional 5.0-liter turbodiesel V8 is a good choice. The gasoline drivetrain adds 7-speed automatic transmission, smoother and quieter ride. But if you want more power, then the diesel option is all you need.
The 5.0-liter Cummins is capable of producing up to 310 HP and 555 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the gasoline option, this diesel engine comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Thanks to the turbodiesel output, the 2019 Nissan Titan Diesel can tow up to 12,000 pounds.
2019 Nissan Titan Diesel price and release date
The prices are ranging from $30,000 for the base model to the $65,000 for the Platinum Reserve model. All-wheel drive setup is optional, and crew cab body style is more expensive than the regular single cab models. The 2019 Nissan Titan Diesel will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2018.
