In accordance with its name, the 2020 Nissan Titan will continue to be a highly capable truck. Currently, in the second generation, it competes in the segment that is dominated by North American trucks. Still, this model also has a couple of trumps in its pocket, starting from good driving dynamics and great handling. The current generation has been around since 2016 and it looks like we will have to wait for some more time to see updates.
Latest reports are suggesting that the 2020 Nissan Titan will be a typical carryover model, which will continue with familiar design characteristics and features. In practice, this means several versions in the offer, with different body styles, bed length, and engines under the hood. Given the lack of changes, we don’t expect to see the upcoming model any earlier than usual. It should hit the market sometime late in the year.
2020 Nissan Titan Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the Titan has no secrets. It rides on the company’s well-known Y62 platform and it is heavily based on the legendary Patrol SUV. Therefore, it’s no wonder it features such amazing driving characteristics, which include good dynamics and great handling and maneuverability. Visually, aesthetics are typical for Nissan, so you will notice that the front end looks quite similar to Patrol/Armada SUVs. The rest of the body comes in a typical truck manner and it is good to mention that there are several versions in the offer when it comes to the body style and bed size. More precisely, there are three main variants in the offer. Base models come in a single cab layout, with a long 8-foot bed. The extended cab version comes with a 6-foot 7-inch bed, while the crew cab model features short 5-foot 7-inch bed.
The interior of this model is quite typical for a truck. Rugged dashboard design and hard materials are something you will find in this truck. Still, most surfaces look very nice and attractive, especially because of some nice color schemes that are offered. There are three cab designs in the offer, so seating capacity varies from 3 to 6 people. In two-row versions, cabins are pretty generous with space, so adults won’t have any problem in accommodating in rear seats. Moreover, there is plenty of head and legroom there. As we already mentioned, there are three-bed sizes in the offer, ranging from 5-foot 7-inches to 8 foot.
There are currently five trim levels in the offer and we have no doubt that the 2020 Nissan Titan will continue in the same way. Those would be S, SV, SL, Platinum Reserve, and Pro-4X.
The base S model is pretty much a working machine but still comes with some nice tech features, including a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB ports, rearview camera, etc.
The SV is a bit of an upgrade. It adds things like alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim and front tow hooks, as well as satellite radio and Nissan’s Trailer Sway Control.
A mid-level SL includes all above and adds things like 20-inch wheels, upgraded side mirrors, running boards, a power-sliding rear window, and remote engine start. It also offers a lot of comfort and convenience, such as power-adjustable steering wheel, driver seat memory functions, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a Fender 12-speaker audio system, etc.
The Platinum Reserve is a pretty luxurious version of this truck. Some of the highlights are adding unique wheels, dark chrome exterior trim, 360-degree parking camera, upgraded leather upholstery, chrome and wood interior accents, heated steering wheel, etc.
Finally, there is the Pro-4X, which is an off-road version of this truck. Therefore, it comes with upgrades like all-terrain tires, off-road-tuned Bilstein shocks, a lockable rear differential, hill descent control, a receiver hitch, and a four- and seven-pin wiring harness connector, skid plates, etc.
2020 Nissan Titan Engines
No changes are expected in this aspect either. The 2020 Nissan Titan will continue with two familiar units under the hood. Base models will continue with a 5.6-liter V8 engine, which delivers around 390 horsepower and comes paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission. It ensures pretty strong acceleration, while the towing capacity goes around 9.000 pounds.
There is also a diesel engine from Cummins in the offer. It is a 5.0-liter turbodiesel, which is good for about 310 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque, which is enough for pretty respectable 12.800 pounds of max towing capacity.
2020 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price
There won’t be bigger changes for the next year, so we are pretty sure that the 2020 Nissan Titan release date will be scheduled for the end of the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 30.500 dollars.
