Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2013-15 models

Tested vehicle: 2013 Nissan Titan S King Cab 2wd

The Nissan Titan was introduced in the 2004 model year. Beginning with 2013 models, design changes were made to the frontal airbags and seat belts. Moderate overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification. (The vehicle tested by Nissan was designated as a 2012 model but included the airbag and seat belt changes of the 2013 models.) Because the vehicle structure did not change after 2004, structure ratings are based this test as well as an earlier test of a 2004 Titan conducted by the Institute.
