the Titan's massive grill is getting familiar these days
the gauges are a simple, clean design
When the Nissan Titan was first introduced in 2004, it forged a new design direction and escalated a race toward "macho" styling we've seen in pickups over the past decade. The Titan broke through with an aggressive, upright appearance that included flared fenders combined with bright chrome details and clean side styling to give it a look that doesn't seem out of place in the city.
Kelley Blue Book describes its style as "out of the mainstream" and warns, "if you like the more conservatively-styled trucks from Chevrolet and Ford, the Titan may be too flashy for your taste." Cars.com says, "The Titan's massive grille is getting familiar these days; in Nissan's lineup, it adorns one other truck and three SUVs." Even so, the Titan "looks just as commanding as a Silverado or Tundra." Car and Driver thinks it bears a resemblance to the Frontier, Nissan's smaller truck, and snipes "the Titan's got enough fake chrome on its nose to outfit a Roppongi sushi bar."
The Titan hasn't changed much over the years. Cars.com notes "some changes in the Titan's headlights and grille framework" from the 2008 refresh, "but the differences are slight." Titans with the off-road package receive a "PRO-4X decal over the rear fender and a body-colored grille and bumper," notes Car and Driver.
The 2010 Nissan Titan still looks fresh from the outside, but the same can't be said inside, where the instrument panel in particular seems dull and plasticky compared to newer designs. Reviewers avoid commenting much on style, however. Cars.com reports that the Nissan Titan has "a lot of typical big-pickup fixtures [such as] hefty door handles [and] a big armrest." Edmunds likes the Nissan Titan's "spacious and functional interior design," and Kelley Blue Book calls it "bold and forward-thinking in its design." Revised metering for the instrument cluster and center stack "improves visual appeal," according to Kelley Blue Book.
Though it's now the oldest of the full-size pickups in design, the 2010 Nissan Titan still manages to look tough.
