Nissan Titan ranked top pickup in J.D. Power quality study

Nissan Titan ranked top pickup in J.D. Power quality study

The strength of Nissan’s dedication to new vehicle quality showed across the board in the J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS) – led by the Nissan Titan full-size pickup.

Titan was ranked not only the best performer in the “Large Light Duty Pickup” segment with 66 problems per hundred vehicles (PPH), but also tied for seventh in fewest overall problems among all 257 vehicles studied.

In addition, Nissan had no models in its car, truck, crossover and SUV lineup with more than 100 PPH and performed better than the industry average for the fourth consecutive year. For 2019, Nissan moved up one spot to fifth (Non-Premium). Since the 2015 model year, Nissan has improved 35 PPH.

J.D. Power measures initial quality by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles during the first 90 days of ownership, with a lower score reflecting higher quality.

“It is rewarding to see Nissan’s continuous improvement in the J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study over the past several years, and it is especially good to see TITAN and Maxima win their IQS categories for 2019,” said Health Holtz, senior vice president, manufacturing, supply chain management and purchasing, Nissan North America, Inc.

“Initial quality is one important metric for our manufacturing team’s performance, but the pursuit of excellence across the Nissan lineup never stops.”

Titan is assembled at Nissan’s Canton, Mississippi plant in the U.S., with engines provided by the Decherd, Tennessee powertrain assembly plant. Titan is powered by a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and is available in 4×2 and 4×4 configurations. It is offered in Crew Cab, King Cab and Single Cab body configurations. Pricing starts at US$36,680 MSRP1.
