Main Competitors

The Titan was created to challenge the market-leaders:

In particular, Toyota had been unable to break into the North American fullsize truck market since its 1993 introduction of the smallish T100, and Tundra sales since its 1999 introduction, while good, were still off compared to GM or Ford.

The Tundra hovered just over 100,000 units annual sales when the larger Titan was introduced, while the Ram sold 400,000 and the Silverado/Sierra and F-Series sold 900,000 annually.

During the first full year of production (December 2003 to December 2004), 85,920 Titans were sold, while the Dodge Ram declined somewhat and the F-150 jumped to nearly 950,000. 86,945 Titans were sold in 2005. 126,529 Toyota Tundras were sold in 2005.

Hybrid Models

At this time, Nissan has no plans to create a hybrid version of the Titan. They've announced five new models as part of the "2007 Shift_2.0" slogan, yet they are only inroducing one hybrid vehicle, the Nissan Altima Hybrid.

Unique Attributes

The amount of chrome detailing on these trucks makes their appearance stand out from their competition.

Interior

This section should include information on the interior's design, build quality, ergonomics, space (head and legroom, front and rear), features, stowage compartments and overall comfort and livability. Add pictures wherever applicable and keep information in a third-person point of view.

Criticisms

"Nissan has made no effort to match the staggering mix of options in engine, transmissions, body styles and accessories that greet, say, a Ford pickup buyer. So you'll have to look elsewhere if you want a big duallie or a cheap, V6-powered regular cab." - New Car Test Drive

Generations

First Generation/Origins (2004–present)

The Titan features the 5.6L VK56DE V8 engine which generates 305-hp (227 kW) at 4900 rpm and 379 ft·lbs(514 N·m) of torque at 3600 rpm. It is available in either rear wheel drive or four wheel drive with a 5-speed automatic transmission. It comes with a choice of a Crew Cab with a 5'7" bed or King (Extended) Cab with a 6'5" bed.


Nissan Junior Pickup (1956-1982)

The Nissan Junior Pickup is the ancestor to the Titan. Engines were the same as the compact Datsun Truck and were of the 4-cylinder type, initially 1.8 liters, then 2.0 liters and finally 2.4 liters. Its foremost competitor was the Toyota Stout and just like its Toyota rival it was larger than the Mazda B-Series.


Awards

  • The Titan was listed by Edmunds.com as the "Best Full-Size Truck."
  • The Titan was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2004.
