Points to consider: 

1. Titan has 1:1 spin - orbit coupling. Therefore one day/night cycle is equal to the period of its rotation /revolution. 

2. The illumination of Titan at night is enhanced by the light that is reflected by Saturn. 

3. The axial obliquity of Titan is close to 0°. However, Titan does have seasons.

4. Day and night have the same length.
