I’m Talking “TOW” You – Can You Tow with a Nissan?

Nissan Titan Towing Capacity – Which Nissan Has the Best Towing Capacity?

A truck is the first tow vehicle most people think of – you don’t see minivans pulling cargo trailers down the highway after all – and the Nissan Titan is both the titan of trucks and a titan of towing.

The 2024 Nissan Titan is capable of towing a maximum of 9,290 pounds when properly equipped, which gives happy Titan owners around Birmingham the ability to safely tow tremendous variety of trailers.

The Titan’s towing capacity will allow you to tow many camper trailers and just about any bass boat and trailer combination you’d likely use on the lakes and waterways of Alabama.

The maximum towing capacity of the Titan is available in a Crew Cab 4×2 configuration. Contact the Hallmark Nissan team for information on which Titan will best fit your needs.

Nissan Titan XD Heavy Duty Towing Capacity


The Nissan Titan XD takes the already impressive capabilities of the Nissan Titan pickup truck and dials them to even higher levels. The Titan XD is built for heavy duty hauling, and it also makes a fantastic tow vehicle with a maximum towing capacity of 11,050 pounds when properly equipped.

Maximum towing with a Nissan Titan XD requires a Crew Cab, available gooseneck hitch, and either the SV or PRO-4X trim level with the Convenience Package or higher trim level. The Titan XD is capable of towing 10,900 pounds when using the standard tow hitch receiver.

Opting for the Nissan Titan XD simply lets you choose a bigger version of whatever you plan to tow, while maintaining safe operating conditions. Perhaps you really can justify that big 5th wheel camper your spouse has been eyeing at the RV dealer?

Which Nissan Vehicles Can Tow 6,000 Pounds?

Six thousand pounds is a towing goal for many outdoors enthusiasts, and Nissan produces three vehicles that are capable of towing a trailer at that target weight. Here’s a brief breakdown on the towing capacities of the Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan Frontier, and Nissan Armada.

Nissan Pathfinder Towing Capacity

Pathfinder Towing

The outdoor adventures of the Nissan Pathfinder are topics of legends, and the 2024 Pathfinder will continue to write stories with its maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Imagine driving your Pathfinder down a twisting country road with your family along for the ride, some gear in the back, and a side-by-side on a trailer behind you. Sounds like a recipe for tons of fun and some core memories, right?

The Nissan Pathfinder is equipped to make those memories, and plenty more, happen whenever the outdoor itch strikes. Contact the Hallmark team to learn more about the Nissan Pathfinder SUV here in Alabama.

Nissan Frontier Towing Capacity


If you’re looking for a Nissan truck, but don’t need the gigantic capacities of the impressive Titan and Titan XD Nissan pickup trucks, then the amazing Nissan Frontier may be the perfect fit for your family and lifestyle.

The 2024 Nissan Frontier is rated to tow a maximum of 6,720 pounds when properly equipped, which gives any tow-minded Nissan owners in Alabama plenty of capacity for their adventures.

Imagine hooking up your camper trailer to a Nissan Frontier mid-size truck and heading off to Bankhead National Forest for a three-day weekend full of hiking and relaxation. Nissan can make that dream a reality, and the Hallmark Nissan team is here to help find the perfect new Nissan mid-size truck.

Nissan Armada Towing Capacity

The Nissan Armada SUV and is big and beautiful and will turn into an absolute beast when you tow with it!

The utility offered by this full-size eight passenger Nissan SUV is hard to match – it can haul your family and cargo in comfort and safety and pull a trailer weighing as much as 8,500 pounds when properly equipped. (Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for total vehicle, passenger, cargo, and trailer combined weight.)

Visualize pulling an Armada Platinum into your driveway, grabbing the family, hooking up your luxurious aluminum-bodied camper, and spending a weekend in Talladega National Forest. Sounds amazing, right?

The Nissan Armada SUV can make that dream, and many other adventures, happen for your family. Visit the Hallmark team in Birmingham and let’s explore how!

How Much Can a Nissan SUV Tow?

Having the flexibility to tow light loads can be a fantastic benefit for homeowners, do it yourself fans, and outdoor enthusiasts who prefer to rent rather than own their boats and Nissan builds two SUVs that offer style and efficiency while offering Nissan owners in Alabama a bit of welcome flexibility.

Take a moment to explore the towing capabilities of the Nissan Murano and Rogue:

Nissan Murano Towing Capacity

We don’t think anything should ever look as good as a Nissan Murano does when it’s pulling a trailer, but Murano owners around Birmingham know it looks great.

The 2024 Nissan Murano is capable of safely towing 1,500 pounds when properly equipped, and that should be enough to:

  • Bring home new retaining wall stones to upgrade your house’s curb appeal
  • Take your riding lawn mower in for service
  • Haul two dirt bikes to the trails
  • Get a couch home from the warehouse because you’re definitely not paying for delivery (much like your intrepid blog writer!)
  • Pick up a set of lawn furniture from Facebook Marketplace

1,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity offers surprising utility, but make sure you stay within that capacity when you factor in the weight of your trailer and the people you’re carrying in your Murano.

Nissan Rogue Towing Capacity

The Nissan Rogue is an amazing Nissan crossover and, even though it’s smaller than the impressive Murano, it offers the same maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

We like to think that the Rogue readies Birmingham Nissan customers to excitedly answer when adventure comes calling, and 1,500 pounds of Nissan towing capacity might enable you to:

  • Bring home that wild yard decoration you found at a garage sale
  • Haul home a go kart
  • Finally buy that pair of kayaks or stand-up paddle boards you’ve been eyeing
  • Transport two 85” televisions to complete your immersive football room

You won’t be able to tow a camper or boat behind a Rogue or Murano, but these Nissan SUVs offer tremendous everyday capacity to help make life easier and more fun. The Hallmark team will be happy to show you how one of these Nissan crossovers will be a great match to your needs!

Is Nissan Good for Towing?

Hallmark Nissan is proud to sell Nissan vehicles at our Nissan dealership here in Birmingham, and many of those Nissans make tremendous towing vehicles as long as you select the right combination of vehicle and trailer and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for towing capacity and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).

Safe and reliable towing requires carefully choosing your trailer and not overloading your vehicle. Towing too heavy a trailer behind any vehicle will dramatically decrease your safety, the reliability of your vehicle, and the lifespan of many of your vehicle’s components.

Nissan offers an incredible resource on towing with their vehicles that can be found here:

Nissan Towing Capacity and Payload – Information from the Manufacturer

Remember that Towing Capacity is the maximum weight that any vehicle can pull while towing. It is affected by the equipment on your Nissan vehicle, whether you’re using towing accessories, the number of people in your Nissan, and the cargo inside or on top of your vehicle.

Towing is an amazing way to experience unique adventures, but the Hallmark team wants to make sure you do it safely and reliably. Call us with any Nissan towing questions at our Nissan dealership here in Birmingham.
