Nissan Truck Trio Ganging Up on Chicago

February 1, 2007
So, what do we care if the temps inChicago next week are supposed to be in the single digits? Nissan’s bringing a trio of updated trucks to the Chicago auto show, including the 2008 versions of the Pathfinder, Armada, and Titan.

The new Titan gets a long-wheelbase version as well as a PRO-4X model sandwiched in between the usual XE, SE, and LE models. The Titan remains flex-fuel capable, through its 5.6-liter, 315-hp V-8. The facelift includes a new grille and fascia and new wheels; inside, the changes are limited to new seats, new instruments, and new options like a Bluetooth system, XM tuner, and a bigger eight-inch DVD screen for the entertainment system.


For 2008, the Pathfinder gets a 300-plus-horsepower version of the Titan’s 5.6-liter V-8. The first V-8 ever offered in the Pathfinder helps it tow up to 7000 pounds. The 266-hp, 4.0-liter V-6 remains on the standard equipment list. New options include a nav system with a 9.3GB “Music Box” entertainment system, new front and rear styling, and new 17- and 18-inch wheels.


The Armada, meanwhile, gets similar styling changes to the Titan, with the addition of 20-inch wheels as an option, as well as a power folding third-row seat, woodgrain trim, a heated steering wheel, and the Music Box audio and DVD navigation system.
