More will likely happen for the Titan XD for the 2020 model year when the mid-update is expected. The upcoming version will likely keep the current powertrains and design while will upgrade the equipment range and add several new features.

The interior of the Titian XD is well designed and the material quality is also competitive. The placing of controls is also well done and drivers can use them easily. The model also has plenty of room in all directions and high driving position.
