I own one, a 2016 TitanXD Pro4x. Bottom line, if you want to tow big, pick something else. Otherwise it's a stouter truck with a better ride and performs about the same as my Banks Stinger Plus enhanced 99.5 PS. Torque management controls and emissions equipment choke down the 310HP and 555 factory torque specs and would probably outrun my Banks Truck if all that crap could be neutralized. The 6 sp Aisin is strong, truck is very quiet and rides like a dream over the PS. Am keeping the PS because I appreciate its strengths and weaknesses (had to do a UVCH repair in back of the visitor's center in Dawson City, YK!--hat tip to klhansen from a few years ago). Had I bought a crew cab back in 2000, very likely would not have bought the XD.
Although Nissan denies exhaust braking, I have enough experience with my Banks Brake to know the XD is doing something similar, perhaps with the turbo setup. Works about as good as the BB that cost me $2300 and can bring the truck and trailer to nearly a dead stop off from 75mph off an Interstate downhill off ramp without touching the brake.
Regens slam MPG for about 10-15 miles every so often. DEF is a nuisance and while I had the PS on a 12,000 mi road trip to AK in 2015, wouldn't want to take the XD because I would have to carry 6 jugs of DEF as a backup--as high as $28/jug if you can find it along the route we took along with the space it takes up-- but you can doggone nearly breathe that exhaust with no effects! As long as the electronics don't screw up, it's a keeper for me.
