Had a great experience with Jag and Callan. Both were very helpful, knowledgeable, and not pushy at all. I felt Jag knew the car very well and was able to get all my questions answered clearly and honestly. Callan was very helpful and thorough with the financing portion. Definitely recommend and would go back!

There’s great news coming out of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The automotive safety agency recently reported that the Nissan Titan Crew Cab pickup has improved its rating in the driver-side small overlap front test, lifting its score from Marginal to Good. The new rating applies to models built after August 2017 when Nissan modified the front-end structure to improve occupant protection.
 
The IIHS’s small overlap test, which was introduced in 2012, reproduces front left corner contact at 40 mph with an object like a tree or pole. For evaluation purposes, the object is a 5-foot-tall rigid barrier. 
 
Watch how the 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab (built after August 2017) performed in the driver-side small overlap IIHS crash test:
 
 
As you can see, the driver space of the modified Titan held up well in the crash test with maximum intrusion on the lower interior of 17 cm at the lower hinge pillar. Upper interior intrusion measured 7 cm at the hinge pillar and instrument panel. 
 
When the older 2017 Titan was tested, the driver space was not maintained well, with a lower interior intrusion measuring as much as 27 cm at the lower hinge pillar and 21 cm at the parking brake pedal. Upper interior intrusion measured 16-19 cm at the instrument panel and hinge pillar, and the steering column was also pushed back 9 cm towards the dummy.
 
And aside from its top score in the driver-side small overlap IIHS crash test, the re-worked 2017 and 2018 Titans also boasted “Good” scores in other categories as well, including the moderate overlap front, side, and roof strength tests, and head restraints and seats, proving that this pickup performer is a solid bet when searching for a truck offering impeccable safety.
 
Think you might want to give the 2017 or 2018 Titan a try? Contact us at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington to schedule your test drive today.
