2019 Nissan Titan XD Exterior Changes
Comparing first-generation design with the upcoming model is two different worlds. However, the 2019 Nissan Titan XD is no different than its predecessor, the styling is basically the same. The front overhang is extended just enough to make space for engine grille.

It will be available in colors such Brilliant Silver, Cayenne Red, Glacier White, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black. These colors are available in base trim. In higher it will get Deep Blue Pearl, Java Metallic, Forget Cooper, Titanium and Solar Flare.

The wheels are 18-inch, and skid plates, rear differential, and watertight storage boxes are all standard. As for the dimension, the newest model has the wheelbase that measures 151.6 in, that is few inches more than the current one. Its length is around 243.6 in and height is 78.4 inches.

2019 Nissan Titan XD Interior Look

The interior is comfy and the standard zero-gravity seats are dressed in two-tone black-brown cloth material. Dash and door panels suffered similar work and plastic materials don’t look that bad at all.
