The maximum amount you can tow with the 2022 Nissan Titan depends on which type you get. Within each 2022 Nissan Titan there is the same engine, a 5.6-liter V-8 that produces 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. However, despite having the same engine, there are differences in towing capabilities due to the size and shape of the vehicle. Below are the three available options, along with their respective towing capabilities.

Titan King Cab

Your first option is to get the 2022 Nissan Titan with the King Cab. With this truck, you’re not getting the extra row of passenger seats behind the driver. Because of this, you’re able to tow a little bit more with the Titan King Cab. The maximum towing capacity for the 2022 Nissan Titan King Cab is 9,320 lbs. If you need to carry things in the truck bed of the 2022 Nissan Titan King Cab, it has a maximum payload capacity of up to 1,710 lbs.

Titan Crew Cab

The 2022 Nissan Titan Crew Cab is the same as the 2022 Nissan Titan King Cab, except the interior has a row of passenger seats behind the driver. This extra size reduces the towing capacity, but only by a little. With the 2022 Nissan Titan Crew Cab, you’ll get a maximum towing capacity of 9,310 lbs. The payload also drops a little compared to the King Cab, coming in at a maximum payload capacity of 1,650 lbs. Finally, the truck bed is a little smaller in length compared to the King Cab, coming in at 67 inches as opposed to 78.7 inches.

Titan XD Crew Cab

The final configuration is the 2022 Nissan Titan XD. Technically, the Titan XD is a different model than the Titan. However, they share the same engine and powertrain configuration. But the 2022 Nissan Titan XD is capable of towing and hauling more than the 2022 Nissan Titan, regardless of which cab you get on the latter.

The towing capacity of the 2022 Nissan Titan XD is rated at a maximum of 11,060 lbs while the hauling capacity comes in at 2,430 lbs. The 2022 Nissan Titan XD also gets a longer truck bed like the 2022 Nissan Titan King Cab, while still providing that extra row for passengers.

Nissan Titan Towing Features

Besides ample towing capabilities, the 2022 Nissan Titan also comes with several features designed to make towing easier and safer for drivers. These features include:

Remote Trailer Light Check

With this feature, drivers can cycle through all your lights using your Nissan Intelligent Key. This makes it easier to check the lights on your trailer before you drive, ensuring they’re in working condition.

Trailer Sway Control

As you’re towing, you never know what you might experience on the road. If you experience bad weather or rougher roads, it can often be hard to control the sway of what you’re towing. Trailer Sway Control helps to keep the trailer in line, protecting it against crosswinds or bad roads.

Integrated Trailer Brake Controller

Should you need it, there is an integrated trailer brake controller in the center of the dashboard. With this you can quickly adjust or activate the trailer brakes, while will help with directional stability.

Intelligent Around View Monitor

The Intelligent Around View Monitor makes it easier to pick up a trailer. The center console display shows two exterior views of the truck, along with guidelines, to help drivers back right into the trailer. No more getting in and out to see how close you are or constantly trying to realign the truck to get it straight.

Tow Mirrors

A simple feature of the 2022 Nissan Titan is the telescoping tow mirrors. When you’re towing, the mirrors on either side of the vehicle extend outward, giving you a better view of what’s behind you and to the sides.

Tow-Haul Mode

For a smoother towing experience, the 2022 Nissan Titan comes with a Tow-Haul mode. This feature helps to reduce searching for the right gear and helps to control speed when you’re going downhill. This feature is conveniently located right next to the steering wheel, making it easy to turn on and off.

Estimated Trailer Weights

If this is your first time purchasing a truck so you can tow things, you may be wondering how much towing capacity you actually need. Below are some common trailer weights, to give you a better idea as to what you need:

  • Kayak Trailer: 100 to 400 lbs.
  • Motorcycle Trailer: 300 to 800 lbs.
  • Fishing Boat Trailer: 200 to 1,100 lbs.
  • Car Trailer: 1,500 to 2,800 lbs.
  • Flatbed Trailer: 1,000 to 7,700 lbs.

These are the weights of the trailer only, not with anything loaded on them. Be sure to factor in the weight of what you want to tow as well to ensure the 2022 Nissan Titan has enough towing capacity for you.
