When Nissan decided to build a full-size pickup, rather than pussyfooting around as Toyota has done for a decade, this Japanese automaker zeroed in on the target: Detroit, where big trucks equal big profits. Right out of the box, the tough-looking Titan is fully competitive with the full-size pickups from Ford, Chevy, and Dodge in every crucial, quantifiable measurement, from power and torque to payload and towing to bed size and cup-holder count. Yet the Titan's most serious kick to Detroit's groin is the simple fact that it is now the best pickup to drive. The Mississippi-built Nissan introduces some clever details, such as extended-cab rear doors that open 180 degrees against the truck's flanks, but it's the Titan's bold, broad strokes that make it an All-Star.
