Nissan Titan Payload Capacity

When you need a truck to haul your gear, the towing capacity is just one factor to consider. It's also important to know the truck's payload capacity, which refers to how many pounds it can carry. This lets you know how much weight you can add to the truck without a trailer. Here's the maximum payload capacity for the different 2022 Nissan Trim models:

  • Titan two-wheel-drive crew cab: Up to 1,600 pounds.
  • Titan four-wheel-drive crew cab: Up to 1,650 pounds.

Similar to the towing capacity, the 2022 Nissan Titan XD has a higher payload capacity when properly equipped. The Titan XD crew cab four-by-four model offers the highest maximum payload capacity among the Titan lineup, at 2,430 pounds.

Nissan Titan Towing Features

The 2022 Nissan Titan is a true towing vehicle. In addition to its impressive towing and payload capacities, the Nissan Titan offers a wide range of features designed to make the job easier, which include:

  • High-quality foundation: The 2022 Nissan Titan features a full-length boxed ladder frame, a reinforced suspension, and an upgraded differential to provide responsive handling, even when hauling serious loads.
  • Tow mirrors: Telescoping side mirrors extend outward while towing to improve your field of vision and safety on the road.
  • Trailer sway control: This safety feature prevents the trailer from swaying from side to side. Whether you're caught in crosswinds or driving on poor roads, trailer sway control can help keep the trailer in line.
  • Tow-haul mode: Use the tow-haul mode with downhill speed control for smoother shifting when you're hauling heavier loads. It can be especially helpful when you're driving through hilly terrain.
  • Around view monitor: This feature offers two views to give you a 360-degree perspective of your surroundings. Use it when you're picking up a trailer to make the job easier.
  • Remote trailer light check: The remote trailer light check allows you to use your Nissan Intelligent Key to check the trailer's brake and turn signal lights. This helps you ensure that these light connections are good to go, even if you don't have someone to help you.
  • Integrated trailer brake controller: You can mount the integrated trailer brake controller on the center dash to adjust or activate the trailer brakes. Choose this option for greater directional stability and peace of mind.

Nissan Titan Towing Accessories

Don't forget about the accessories. When you drive a 2022 Nissan Titan, these optional add-ons can boost your truck's towing capability. Choose from a variety of authentic Nissan towing accessories, such as the following:

  • Hitch ball mount: When you equip your Titan with an optional towing package, boost your towing with a Class III hitch ball mount, rated for towing up to 5,000 pounds. Choose from a standard design or a four-inch drop, specially designed for low trailers.
  • Fifth wheel adapter: This optional accessory attaches to a gooseneck hitch, allowing you to increase your towing capacity.
  • Bed assist grip: This functional grip allows you one-handed access to the truck bed. When it's not in use, you can store it out of the way until you need it again.
