Small overlap front: driver-side

Rating applies to 2017-19 models built after August 2017

Tested vehicle: 2017 Nissan Titan S King Cab 2wd (with SV alloy wheels)

The Nissan Titan King Cab (light duty pickup with gasoline engine) was redesigned for the 2017 model year after a one-year absence from the market. Beginning with 2017 models built after August 2017, the front-end structure was modified to improve occupant protection in small overlap crashes. (Information about when a specific vehicle was manufactured is on the certification label typically affixed to the car on the driver door or adjacent B-pillar.)

Driver-side small overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Nissan as part of frontal crash test verification.
