After the recent update, we presume that the 2021 Nissan Titan will be a typical carryover. Considering all the updates that were introduced recently, it would be unrealistic to expect anything more significant for just a year later. After all, the current generation is still relatively fresh. It has been on the market since 2016, so we are pretty sure it will remain in production for a couple of more years. The recent update has made it fresher.
There is a new face, which looks more modern. Also, the engine gets a slight power boost, while there is also a full load of novelties in terms of safety and driver-assist goodies. Finally, there is a new infotainment system, with a bigger touchscreen and more intuitive than before. The best we could see from the 2021 Nissan Titan is a couple of additions in terms of standard features. Other than that, things are about to remain the same. So, the release date should be scheduled for a typical time of year.
2021 Nissan Titan Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, we definitely won’t see any particular change. The 2021 Nissan Titan will continue to ride on a good-old F-Alpha platform, which ensures pretty good handling and driving characteristics. The overall shape and dimensions will remain untouched, though we must mention that the single cab model has been dropped recently, so the new model will be available with two rows of seats only.
The recent update has brought a nice amount of styling changes. There is a completely new face, which looks more modern than before. The new model features a more massive grille, as well as reshaped headlights with LED lamps and a quite futuristic look. Also, you may notice a couple of revisions on the rear end, particularly in terms of the new tailgate.
We are pretty sure that the 2021 Nissan Titan will come with the same styling. The best thing we could see is the addition of new color options. Other than that, things will remain the same.
The recent update has also brought a couple of novelties to the interior. Of course, the first you’ll notice is a new touchscreen. Base ones now measure 8 inches diagonally, while the higher trims come with a 9-inch touchscreen. Other than that, you may notice a couple of revisions on the center stack, but the overall cabin design remains the same.
Even this small change has made a huge impact on the Titan’s dashboard. It now looks far more attractive than before. Combined with quality materials, this cabin looks very upscale, better than most other trucks in the segment. Higher trims look pretty luxurious.
One of the best things about this truck is a full load of safety features and driver aids. The list of standard equipment has been significantly expanded with the recent update. So, every Titan now comes standard with a Safety Shield 360 package. This suite includes systems like automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and rear automated emergency braking. You can also get an optional 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, and other advanced systems.
When it comes to tech goodies, a new infotainment system and bigger screens have been introduced recently. Also, you can now get wireless charging, as well as a panoramic sunroof. Other notable standard features are satellite radio, Bluetooth, a USB port, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, 6-speaker audio system etc. Higher trims also offer dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation, premium audio system etc.
2021 Nissan Titan Engine
Changes under the hood definitely won’t happen, given everything that happened with the recent update. As you probably know, a diesel engine is not available anymore, so a good-old 5.6-liter V8 remains the only powertrain option in the offer. Moreover, it received a slight power boost recently, so a max output now goes around 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, which should provide a little bit better acceleration and more throttle response. Another important novelty of the recent update is a new transmission.
The new model comes standard with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, which should provide even better ride quality compared to the replaced 7-speed transmission. It should have a positive effect on fuel economy as well. All in all, things will definitely remain the same under the hood.
2021 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price
Given the fact that most of the things are about to remain unchanged, we are pretty sure that the 2021 Nissan Titan will come in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2020. Also, the price should remain pretty much the same. Considering that single cab models are not available anymore, the starting price will be higher and should go around 34.000 dollars.
