Expert Quotes:

The rear seats fold up to provide a large load floor for hauling items inside the cab, and the rear doors on king cab models open nearly 180 degrees for easier access.
Edmunds

Elaborate option packages can be had at each level.

That said, the Titan still doesn't offer factory-installed trailer-brake control, which the Silverado, Sierra, Ram and F-150 do.

As much as the Titan carries through with what's familiar, it does include a number of feature changes for 2013. The availability of navigation, satellite radio, and a USB port has been expended, sliding sun visors have been added to all models, and a new rear reading lamp design has been added to Crew Cab models this year. There are also new wheels for much of the lineup, the PRO-4X off-road-oriented model gets a refreshed look, step rails have been added, and a 120-volt AC outlet has been added to the bed on top SL models (optional on others).

What hasn't changed is that four trim levels are offered: S, SV, PRO-4X, and SL. The S and SV trims are more basic work models, with a more rugged grade of interior finishes, while the PRO-4X and SL move into the luxurious personal-truck crowd. The PRO-4X brings with it a special set of features keyed directly at trailblazers of all kinds--with tow hooks, off-road tires, Rancho shocks, and a locking tailgate and locking storage box. And at the top of the lineup, the SL is as you would guess, a loaded, dressed-up street truck ready for a night out.

Base S models do include air conditioning, manual windows and locks, and a CD sound system, and the floor is vinyl, but even the Titan S comes with a split cloth bench seat and 60/40-split flip-up rear seat. SV models add alloy wheels, chrome exterior detailing, a removable locking tailgate, carpeting, additional gauges, keyless entry, an overhead console, map lights, and upgraded sound. With the PRO-4X you get tow hooks, skid playes, a receiver hitch, special Rancho shocks, a sliding rear window, cargo-area lamp, lockable bed-side storage box, Bluetooth, cruise control, power accessories, rear parking sensors, and all sorts of interior trim upgrades. Key features of the top-of-the-line SL model include a navigation system with USB port and satellite radio, dual-zone climate control, a cabin air filter, a rear power outlet, HomeLink, power-adjustable pedals and leather captain's chairs, heated front seats, and a rockin' Rockford Fosgate stereo.

On various models, Bluetooth hands-free phone capability, XM Satellite Radio, heated/leather seats, and a DVD entertainment center are all available. The Premium Utility package adds a raft of towing and load-centric features to the PRO-4X; examples include power-adjustable pedals, a spray-on bedliner, Utili-Track cargo cleats, bed area lighting, towing mirrors, and the Rockford Fosgate audio system with a subwoofer. .

Conclusion

Bluetooth and high-end audio are offered, but the Titan lacks some of the advanced features of the Ram and Ford pickups.

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.
