2013 Nissan Titan
2013 Nissan Titan

New For 2013

The three-spoke steering wheel is replaced with a four-spoke unit, and the tailgate is redesigned for better aerodynamic efficiency. The PRO-4X model is restyled with new decals, a satin chrome grille, darkened wheels, and white stitching for the seats. Step rails become standard on SV and SL models, and S models receive redesigned steel wheels. A backup camera is now standard on the PRO-4X and the SL.

Overview

Who said American automakers are the only ones capable of building a full-size pickup truck? The Titan is Nissan’s take on the segment, and it matches its Detroit competitors in size, power, and heft. It has one engine, a beefy 5.6-liter V-8, that mates to a five-speed automatic transmission. Body choices are a four-door crew cab and the King Cab, which has hinged rear half-doors, and there are three bed lengths. We think the Titan is one of the few big pickups that doesn’t drive like one. The 317-hp V-8 provides muscular acceleration, and the steering has better feedback than that of some sedans. The Titan’s ride is comfortable and planted over lumpy roads. This big truck has a maximum tow rating of 9500 pounds and an array of tie-downs, storage compartments, and towing gear available. The roomy interior is nicely laid out and filled with storage bins and cupholders. The front passenger seat folds flat to provide a work surface, and the center console can hold hanging files. The Nissan Titan delivers on all the primary reasons for which buyers select full-size trucks: size, power, utility, and capability. Unfortunately, all those qualities haven’t translated to sales, as Nissan has been unable to gain much of a toehold in the lucrative full-size-pickup market. Currently, Nissan sells one Titan for every twenty-seven F-series pickups sold by Ford.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; stability and traction control; ABS with brake assist; and a tire-pressure monitoring system are standard.

NEWPORT BEACH, California -- Nissan sold 21,576 full-size Titan pickup trucks in all of 2012, which would be a bad month for the Ram 1500 pickup truck here. The Japanese-based automaker had planned to team up with Chrysler for an all-new truck in order to help boost sales, but that was before Chrysler’s bankruptcy in 2009. Instead, Nissan will team up with Ram’s/Dodge’s long-time partner, the diesel engine-builder Cummins, for the first turbodiesel Nissan pickup truck to be sold in North America.
