Crowd-favorite Nissan pickup trucks and SUVs are available in 2023 to give commutes a significant upgrade. The following Nissan vehicles offer comfortable interiors mingled with the towing capabilities to get drivers to their preferred destinations with all of their equipment efficiently stored.

2023 Nissan Frontier

Replete with significant updates, the latest Frontier is a contender in the midsize truck segment. It integrates a smooth ride with a well-appointed interior and a robust 3.8-liter V-6 engine. The pickup truck’s maximum payload stands at 1,610 pounds, while its peak trailering is 6,720 pounds. To clarify, for real-world use, these figures are certainly enough to permit enthusiasts to pull a small or midsize trailer without much of a challenge. Optional and pragmatic add-ons include a spray-in bedliner, adjustable tie-down cleats, a 120-volt power outlet, and under-rail lighting.

2023 Nissan Titan

The Nissan Titan is a competent full-size light-duty pickup truck. The 5.6-liter V-8 engine under the hood accelerates up to 400 horsepower and produces 413 pound-feet of torque for a pleasing amount of burly velocity. It also has a supple cabin and enough towing capacity for most jobs. For example, the truck’s maximum towing capacity when properly equipped is 9,310 pounds. In addition, the maximum payload capacity is 1,650 pounds. Those numbers translate to hauling a typical trailer. Meanwhile, there is ample storage space inside the Titan, including enough room for a useful, soft smartphone grip.

2023 Nissan Titan XD

The 2023 Nissan Titan XD bridges the gap between full-size and heavy-duty pickup trucks, with the ride comfort of the former and commendable durability of the latter. All available trim levels come in a single crew-cab configuration with a 6.5-foot bed. Like its other Titan counterpart, this automobile offers a 5.6-liter V-8 engine and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The pickup truck’s towing capability is notable, however. The 2023 Nissan Titan XD boasts a staggering towing capacity of 11,033 pounds. It also comes outfitted with a large set of work truck features, including:

  • A receiver hitch with a combo four-pin/seven-pin wiring harness connector
  • A spray-in bedliner
  • A lockable tailgate

2023 Nissan Pathfinder

Now, it is time to analyze the lineup of Nissan’s SUVs. An examination of the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder reveals a reasonably spacious vehicle that is pleasant to drive. It comes with a plentiful amount of in-car technology, so it can haul cargo and people in relative comfort. In fact, the Pathfinder has one of the best tow ratings in its class. Standard trims can tow 3,500 pounds, but if drivers select the towing package, that figure increases exponentially to 6,000 pounds, more than almost every other mid-size SUV. It also opens up to 45 cubic feet with the third row folded or 80.5 cubic feet with the second and third rows down. Thus, the space is open, wide, and practical.

2023 Nissan Murano

The Nissan Murano is a midsize SUV that provides character and value with a memorable exterior design and a plush seating arrangement. The Murano manages a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds, making it suitable for light towing applications such as jet skis, small boats, and camping trailers. Even though its towing capabilities are not the highest in the series of Nissan SUVs, it is a stalwart in the automaker’s lineup because of its comfortable interior of 67 cubic feet with the second row folded flat. Indeed, it is a versatile automotive option without forsaking a touch of boldness.
