The towing capacity of a truck like the 2022 Nissan Titan relies on its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), which is the total weight that the truck can handle. As more great features get added each year, the curb weight may rise, causing a slight loss of towing capacity potential. But Nissan engineers ensured that it's a trade-off that requires little compromise on your part, bringing you the best of both creature comforts and towing capabilities.

Nissan Titan Towing Capacity By Configuration

As we mentioned, GVWR helps define a truck's towing capacity. With the Nissan Titan towing capacity, the configuration can cause the specific GVWR to vary. And with those cab/bed configurations, the truck's curb weight can take up more or less of that GVWR. As well, mechanical factors like stresses to the drivetrain with 4x2 vs. 4x4 configurations can affect the maximum towing capacity. The owner's manual for your specific Nissan Titan will reveal the in-depth configuration-based towing capacity.

Here's how the maximum Nissan Titan towing capacity changes with each layout:

  • Nissan Titan King Cab 4x2: Up to 9,323 pounds1
  • Nissan Titan Crew Cab 4x2: Up to 9,317 pounds1
  • Nissan Titan King Cab 4x4: Up to 9,206 pounds1
  • Nissan Titan Crew Cab 4x4: Up to 9,167 pounds1

What Makes the Nissan Titan Towing Capacity Possible?

Power, a solid transmission, and a strong frame. The new Nissan Titan for sale uses a high-strength steel frame to take the stresses of towing in stride, and to get it all moving, it comes standard with eight-cylinder oomph. Specifically, every 2023 Nissan Titan has a 5.6-liter V-8 engine with 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque under its hood. A nine-speed automatic transmission sends that power through to the rear wheels, and for all-terrain dominance, a 4x4 system, including a two-speed transfer case, is available.

An available electronic locking rear differential can help handle off-road fun or heavy loads without breaking a sweat.
