Expert Quotes:

The Titan exterior wears a bold front end and cab design, highlighted by a standard 138.9-inch wheelbase.
Motor Trend

Both King Cab and Crew Cab Titans feature a spacious and functional interior design, with easy-to-use controls and numerous storage bins.
Edmunds

The Titan's massive grille has long been a familiar sight; in Nissan's lineup, it adorns one other truck and three SUVs.

Despite a design that's getting a bit long in the tooth, the Titan holds its own in terms of road manners and power.
ConsumerGuide


Some may find the Titan's unique looks too flashy, though others will find it offers a more appealing alternative to the conservative styling of other trucks.

It was new in the 2004 model year, and Nissan's Titan hasn't changed much at all since then. More than seven years down the road, the American-made, Japanese-branded pickup still manages to look brawny and relatively fresh, in the way the Ram trucks still generate more of a double-take than anything in the class.

The Titan's tough exterior has lots of overstated details, but the basic boxes aren't awkward at all, like the ones on the exaggerated Toyota Tundra. The upright and aggressive appearance wears lots of bright chrome, too, and a new styling package ups the wheels to sizes that usually mean the end of the current life cycle.

Inside, the Titan shows more of its age, and really has for at least a few years. Both its design and materials come off dull and plasticky in comparison to more recently redesigned trucks, especially the current Ram 1500 and Ford F-150, but also including the refined Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra.

 

Conclusion

It looks tough to this day, though the Nissan Titan is the oldest full-size pickup on sale today.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
