It's a V8-powered off-road truck that is not afraid of hard work.

Here is what’s it’s like to live with a new Nissan Titan PRO-4X. We have this 2021 Titan on a long-term loan from Nissan and it has nearly 15,000 miles on the clock. You often ask us about longer-term reviews of new pickup trucks, so we will be bringing you more of these reviews.

Over the last couple of months, we put a lot of miles on this Titan crew cab 4×4. We have taken it on some tough off-road trails, we towed with it on the Ike Gauntlet™ – the world’s toughest towing test, we used it to move furniture, and we used it as a commuter.

The Titan currently comes with just one powertrain: it’s a 5.6-liter V8 with 400 horsepower that is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. It’s no secret that this is one of the best-sounding and powerful pickup truck engines on the market today. It’s one of the least efficient new trucks on the market, we are averaging close to 16 MPG in daily mixed driving during the winter months.

During our time with the truck, we had exactly zero problems with it. It has never let us down. It handled trailer towing and stuff hauling duties with ease. We are also big fans of the Titan’s Fender audio system. The MSRP on this fully-optioned PRO-4X with several Nismo Off-Road accessories is $61,000. It is pricy, but if you are looking to fully equip its competitors from Ford, GM, Ram, and Toyota – you can be looking at $65,000+ (or even $75,000+) price tags.
