You've already seen three of the five trucks so far that will compete in our upcoming 2018 Best Half-Ton Truck Challenge: the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country, the 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat and the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT. We've only got two left to preview, and now it's time to take a closer look at the 2019 Nissan Titan Pro-4X.

Nissan's only off-road package, the Pro-4X uses monotube Bilstein off-road shocks to go with substantial 275/65/R18 all-terrain tires wrapped around dark-painted inner alloy wheels. There's also extra skid plating up front to protect the radiator, a set of paint-protected tow hooks, and an electronic locking rear differential. The package is rounded out with Pro-4X graphics outside and embroidered logos on the seats inside.

Our test unit also came with three option packages; the first and least expensive was the Pro-4X Premium Package, which includes backup and 360-degree cameras, ventilated front seats plus side mirrors that tilt down automatically when placed in Reverse. That package will run you $795.

Next was the Pro-4X Utility Package that added $1,845, and provided front and rear parking sensors, an integrated trailer brake controller, larger manual extendable tow mirrors, Nissan's Utili-track bed cargo system and movable tie-downs, and a 12-speaker premium Fender stereo system.

Finally, the Pro-4X Convenience Package added $3,545 to the final total and featured a heated steering wheel and heated all-leather seats, leather door and console surfaces, a four-way power front passenger seat, a memory system for the driver's seat, steering wheel and side mirrors, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and a remote start system.

Those $6,185 in additional options, plus a $1,295 destination fee, took the 2019 Titan Pro-4X's price from the $46,710 base price up to $54,190 — the lowest price in our Challenge by thousands of dollars. Be sure to stick around for our upcoming preview of the last competitor in our test, the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited, and check out our results Monday to find out if this Titan had what it takes to beat the competition.

This is a nice truck, I don't care what the Ford hit squad has to say.

It's a solid contender. It literally wouldn't take much for this truck to seriously threaten the establishment. A little gearing change here and there could help fuel mileage and towing, some suspension tuning could help hauling and towing numbers. As it stands, it looks like a great truck went into a committee and this is what came out.

It’s close. Nissan is really trying - at least more than Toyota. Wouldn’t consider an XD but this is almost there - just hate the front end - subjective I know.

No thanks but I like the Ford wheel tubs.

What I mean is I care what everyone has to say. I am an insecure girly man.

Go GM!

The problem with this truck is fuel economy. Nissan has a reputation of building vehicles with good fuel economy. Building vehicles that go against your reputation is difficult for consumers to embrace.

Meet the winner!

Its a good truck! It won't win as many categories as Ford or RAM, But It's a viable choice for some. I guess it just depends on what you need. Toyota and Nissan are still really new to this in comparison. The Big three have been building full size trucks for way longer and have had a lot of time to improve their formulas.

Their only real selling point is their warranty. But if I had a Nissan exec in front of me I'd ask him, Why should I buy a titan over an F150, Ram or Silverado?

This one thinks it's a truck, Toyota is hiding

Go GM!

I’d buy the Titan over a Silverado. But not over a Ram or F150

The Silverado is just too damn ugly.

Will be interested to see how it performs overall against the class leaders. I'm sure its at least a competent alternative for anyone whos tired of being being wronged by their daddy's brand and bold enough to tell the brand they love to get their act together.

@ imposter

Get a new username Leach!!

Now back on topic.

I really like this truck. I think in person it has a commanding presence! Its a huge truck. If they could cut some weight off of it using mixed materials it would be been better.

Interesting to see how it performs.

nope ha was always a "tard"

Because I called out the Ford hit squad, they have gone mad. So funny, so easy to get them revved up.

@ GMSRGREAT

Its just 20 personalities and drools who always think we are same person. Its quite comical.
They can say GM is scared bc they didnt offer a 5.3L, but when u turn tables and say ford is scared, boy do they get mad!

I'd be upset to if my truck was constantly in the shop! Or if I drove a car and talked smack on a truck forum. Pathetic.

@ tntOnline All you talk is smack.

TNTGOESBIZZERK whined anput other’s using someone else’s “ name” , and the does the same himself.

He cannot see how stupid he really is


@tnt


It would have looked pretty bad if Gm sent a 5.3L equipped all-new truck (what gm sells most of) and even the Nissan outperformed it.....

TNTGAY is no doubt wishing he could delete that post above where he proved to us all he is both GMSRGREAT and TNTGMC.

He went bizzerk and had a meltdown

You are an immature fuq head.

THE FAKE PAPA

Just a little reminder of what happened the last time there was a comparison of 1/2 tons. We all know that PUTC was generous in their subjective evaluation of the rear squating, front darting F-150. It was clear that both GM entrants were the superior work horses in that match-up.

https://news.pickuptrucks.com/2016/01/whats-the-best-light-duty-truck-for-towing-2016-texas-truck-showdown.html

GM Shills like papajim, TNTGMC ( aka GMSRGREAT ) ruined this site.

IDK about you but that 2016 showdown should have been named 6.2L beat down!!!

Those are some serious numbers put down and the little 3.5l motor that could, could not hang with it!

Another intelligent statement by tntOnline. "Said with much sarcasm".

hey "it"

Since u can't read the 6.2L did put a complete beat down on all the engines. It won basically every testing.

U would know this if u actually drove a truck or knew anything about them?!

BTW....here are facts that the 6.2L is superior! Not lies like "it" states all the time.

Got his feelings hurt. Poor little Michael Jackson pervert.

Nice truck! Much nicer than the under performing GM trucks that feature slow engines.

It's a shame they made the front end so ugly. Otherwise this is the best/most reliable 1/2 ton made. Has zero weaknesses.

@TNTGMC, A.K.A. GMSRGREAT........we fooled these clowns. I like how you call them "it" for posting under various names like you/me/I do!! HAHAHAHAHA
