Both the Nissan Titan and Nissan Titan XD have the power and performance that serious pickup drivers throughout the St. Louis, Missouri area are looking for in a new truck, but how do they compare to each other?

The Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup sure to impress drivers looking for a truck with a sleek yet rugged build and an almost luxurious interior cabin.

Similar in many ways to the Nissan Titan, the Nissan Titan XD provides drivers with increased performance in areas such as towing capacity, payload, and gross vehicle weight. The slightly larger Nissan Titan XD is an ideal truck for you if you have heavy towing and carrying needs. When you have the Nissan Titan XD on your side, your exhausting jobs and demanding loads become merely business as usual.

At a slight price premium, the Nissan Titan XD is a perfect fit for customers who love the features of the Nissan Titan but are looking for enhanced capabilities. The differences between the two Nissan models extend beyond dimensions and towing capacities. An important distinction between the Nissan Titan and the Nissan Titan XD is the steering system. The Nissan Titan has a rack and pinion system, whereas the Nissan Titan XD throws it back to the more conventional recirculating ball system. Which type of steering gear you prefer, however, ultimately comes down to your personal preference.
