The Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup truck that has been a part of Nissan’s vehicle lineup since its initial debut on the mainstream auto market in 2003. Unfortunately for the Titan, however, it has never sold particularly well on the North American auto market—even though it is within the vehicle class that overwhelmingly sells the best in the United States.
Low ratings and low sales have caused the Nissan Titan to fall even further behind its full-size pickup truck peers over the years. Since 2003, the Titan has only gone through two generations and has not undergone any major updates or upgrades since 2016. Considering all the changes and shifts in consumer demands that have swept through the auto industry over the past four years since 2016, the lack of updates and upgrades for the Titan during this time period is particularly dismaying.
With that being said, things are looking up for the 2020 Nissan Titan. For the 2020 model year, the Titan underwent a major redesign that upgraded its powertrain, styling, and tech to help modernize this aging pickup truck and revitalize it as a viable full-size pickup truck option on the mainstream auto market. If you’re interested in how the Titan has turned things around for itself, here are 5 updates, upgrades, and brand-new features that are featured in the 2020 Nissan Titan.
An upgraded powertrain is one of the most exciting updates for the Nissan Titan for the 2020 model year.
The 2020 Nissan Titan is equipped with a 5.6-L V8 engine that delivers 400 horsepower on the road. This powerful engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission to ensure easy handling and guarantee a smooth and quiet ride—even over rougher terrains—for both drivers and passengers alike.
Restyled Interior and Exterior
Both the interior and the exterior of the Nissan Titan were restyled for the 2020 model year. Nothing about the styling of the Titan has been particularly attention-grabbing in the past, but that changes for the 2020 Titan model.
The 2020 Nissan Titan is available with multiple interior materials—including gravity cloth, leather, and quilted leather—that give it an upscale look and feel. Its seats are wide and comfortable and its interior as a whole offers plenty of room for both passengers and cargo, which gives the Titan’s cabin a refreshing, spacious feel on the inside.
The exterior of the all-new full-size Titan includes a variety of flashy features that up the glam of the 2020 Titan. These features include but are not limited to twenty-inch chrome wheels, a chrome exhaust, and a chrome front grill that add a bold finish to the Titan without going overboard into tacky territory.
Newly Standard Advanced Safety Tech
A host of advanced safety tech and driver-assistance features come newly standard for the newest Nissan Titan with the introduction of Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 driver assistance suite to the Titan for 2020.
Advanced safety features inside Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 system include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning, high beam assist, and much more.
Amenities are what elevates a vehicle from a solid option that is practical to drive to an exciting choice on the market that is both reliable and fun to drive. The 2020 Titan comes with a variety of new and improved amenities—some of which come standard for all trim levels and others of which are only available as optional add-ons or only come in certain trim levels—that offer a more enjoyable experience on the road for both drivers and passengers alike.
Miscellaneous amenities that are featured in the 2020 Nissan Titan include rugged heated and power-adjusted outside mirrors, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof, and an available utility package that includes a utility-track system and four tie-down cleats.
The 2020 Nissan Titan comes complete with a variety of customizable options. When you buy a 2020 Titan, you can choose between a king cab or a crew cab. As of 2020, there is no longer a single cab option for the Titan.
The 2020 Titan is also available in five different trim levels, each of which offers varying amenities to match your budget and your preferences. These trim levels include the base-level Titan S, the Titan SV, the Titan Pro-4X, the Titan SL, and the Titan Platinum Reserve. All five trim levels of the 2020 Titan look and feel upscale, luxurious, and rugged in all the right ways.
If you’re in the market for a new full-size pickup truck, the 2020 Nissan Titan is definitely an option to keep in the running.
Nissan’s newest Titan has been revitalized for the 2020 model year, allowing it to finally hold its own alongside other modern full-size pickup trucks on the mainstream auto market.
