Each year, Truck Trend’s editors evaluate new and fully redesigned pickups, putting them through a series of tough tests before deciding which to crown their Truck of the Year. One of the most essential assessments is the Hauling and Towing test in which they load trucks down to 100 percent of their max payload and 75 percent of their rated towing capacity.

The trucks are then sent up steep inclines to evaluate their performance. In the video above, you can check out the 2017 Nissan TITAN as it goes through the Hauling and Towing test, and see what Truck Trend editors had to say.

The Nissan TITAN was named their 2017 Truck of the Year after impressing in this and other tests.
