Offered only in four-door King Cab and Crew Cab body styles, Nissan's full-size Titan pickup comes wrapped in brash styling that's highlighted by a large and forceful front grille. Its 5.6-liter, "Endurance" V-8 engine generates 305 horsepower and 379 lb-ft of torque, and drives either the rear or all four wheels via a five-speed-automatic transmission. It boasts a maximum towing capacity of 9400 pounds, and offers an available factory-applied bedliner, bed extender, and an innovative customizable cargo tie-down system in the rear. It comes standard with anti-lock brakes, a CD stereo, cruise control, and a tire-pressure monitor. Front-side and side-curtain airbags, a navigation system with park-assist proximity sensors, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, and a premium Rockford Fosgate audio array are optional. The 2006 updates include a newly optional Vehicle Dynamic Control system with a locking differential, a sunroof on Crew Cab SE models, and a Tow Package on XE versions. Also, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and power folding heated mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators are now standard on the LE; SE and LE audio systems can now play MP3-formatted CDs, and two new exterior colors, Majestic Blue and Graphite are added.
