The Nissan Titan is an appealing option among the full-size, light-duty versions and now competes with the redesigned Ram 1500 and GM’s light-duty trucks plus recently refreshed Ford F-150 and old-school Toyota Tundra. The Titan arrived all-new for the 2017 model year and has more than doubled sales compared to the previous generation. This truck has appealing looks and strong V-8 engine. It also offers nice cabin and useful features including the off-road-focused PRO-4X version. The Titan XD also hits the sweet spot between the light- and heavy-duty segments.
The next version of this model arrives as the 2019 Nissan Titan. Nissan, for now, promised a factory lift kit for both versions, the Titin and Titan XD. What is more important, buyers expecting promised V-6 engine option but Nissan hasn’t revealed the arrival date of this version. What’s good, Nissan said recently that V-6 option will come and will also be available in the redesigned Frontier. However, there is no evidence it will arrive in time for the 2019 model year. Other upgrades should include upgraded electronics, new options and possibly more safety equipment.
2019 Nissan Titan: Design
The Nissan Titian is easily recognizable and appealing truck which definitely has the unique identity in the truck segment. The bold grille can be spotted from the long distance and sharp body lines also improve its appearance. The exterior details change in each trim but Titan doesn’t try to be too much fancy as the class leaders in some trim options.
The Titan will be available in three cab styles and the last cab style arrived for the 2018 version. The number of bed lengths is also three and Nissan also added the Midnight Edition with black accents for the 2018 Titan.
The 2019 Nissan Titan won’t bring notable styling changes and we should expect new color options, new wheel design and possibly a new trim option.
The cabins of the Titan deliver close to the crossover design and appearance. However, this truck doesn’t go luxury as other rivals but still offers good ergonomics and material quality.
The base version comes with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, power windows and locks, six speakers, 5-inch display, etc. The Titian also offers leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, wood and chrome interior accents, Rockford Fosgate sound system, and NissanConnect service.
For the new model year, the Titian is expected to offer upgraded infotainment system and introduce some of missing active safety systems.
2019 Nissan Titan: Powertrains
The biggest concern about the 2019 Nissan Titan is the V-6 engine option and will it arrive. This option would surely bring new buyers to the showrooms but Nissan hasn’t still confirmed the arrival of this option for the 2019 model year. The good news is, Nissan hasn’t also revoked this engine option and also confirmed the V-6 for the new Frontier.
What is sure a proven 5.6-liter V-8 will power most if not all Titans. This engine in the current state of tune can produce 390 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque. Nissan mates this engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The PRO-4X version brings off-road specialized Bilstein Shocks, skid plates, lockable rear differential and all-terrain tires for greater off-pavement capability.
2019 Nissan Titan: Arrival, Price
The 2019 Nissan Titan should hit the market in late 2018. The price range would begin under $30k if the V-6 engine arrives.
