Here at Edmonton’s Go Nissan, we’re not shy in sharing our love of the 2019 Nissan Titan, or the slightly larger (and slightly more capable) Nissan Titan XD. From its muscular looks, smart interior, incredible functionality, and overall capability, there’s no job that the Titan can’t manage. But if one question comes up more than others (and it does), it’s “how much can the Nissan Titan tow?” Well, strap in, and let the team at Go Nissan break down the towing capacity of the entire 2019 Nissan Titan lineup!
What is the towing capacity for the Nissan Titan, and Titan XD?
The towing capacity of your Nissan truck is dependent on the engine it’s equipped with. If you’re starting with the 2019 Titan and its 5.6-litre DOHC 32-valve V8, you’ll have a max towing capacity of 9,200 lbs. However, by bumping up to the beefier Titan XD, with the available 5.0-litre V8 Cummins® Turbo-Diesel, you’ll have access to over 11,960 lbs of pure towing madness. Deciding between the Titan or Titan XD isn’t an easy decision, but it’s made easier when you look at what you’ll be using it for. Come to any of our three Go Nissan dealerships, and let us know what you’re moving—and we can help you decide!
What is the Titan’s payload, and how is it different from towing?
People often confuse payload and towing, which can make things difficult when it comes to picking the right truck for the job. It’s really quite simple: the difference between carrying, and pulling. While a truck’s towing capacity refers to what it can pull behind it, the payload is the weight a truck can carry—in addition to its curb weight. It’s important to keep in mind that this max payload refers to anything the truck is carrying, meaning every passenger or half-empty water bottle in the backseat counts. When it comes to payload, Nissan trucks are top of their class, offering over 1,500 lbs in the Titan, and over 2,400 lbs in the Titan XD. If the average offensive lineman in the NFL weighs 314 lbs, your Titan could carry an entire offensive line—and you could add a few defensive linemen in the XD!
As you can see, there’s very little you can’t hitch to the 2019 Nissan Titan, or Titan XD, thanks to its tremendous towing capacity. If you’re looking for a truck that’s in it for the long haul, then come down to Go Nissan with friends or family in tow, and test drive one of these magnificent trucks.
