With the 2018 Nissan Titan XD, the makers are trying to do something out- of- the box. The Nissan Titan is going to be bigger than a .5 tonne truck but smaller than the .75 tonne. The size of this truck is quite big and because of that Nissan was expected to launch yet another smaller version of the Titan. But the new Titan XD is going to be bigger as well as heavier.
