Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Nissan Titan has a score of 90, implying a 0.028% chance of driver death (2.5% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2020 Nissan Titan has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0283% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.233%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0283% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.233% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2020 Nissan Titan is 41% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other pickups, the 2020 Nissan Titan is 49% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Nissan's Safety Shield 360 greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. The following active safety systems are included even on lower trims/versions of the 2020 Nissan Titan: Automatic Emergency Braking w/ Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Warning.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.


And it is safer than many comparable models.
