2013 Nissan Titan Styling

7.0
On Styling

The 2013 Titan hasn't changed much since its original introduction for 2004, yet either in a testament to Nissan designers or to how slowly pickup design evolves (we can't entirely say), these trucks still look appealing on the outside especially.

On the outside, the Titan is brash and overstated, yet its details aren't overstated to the point of cartoonishness, as in the Toyota Tundra. It does wear a lot of chrome to frame its upright, aggressive look, and wheel upgrades help give the carry-over look a little more pop. For 2013, Nissan has given the Titan a new tailgate design that includes an aerodynamic rear spoiler, and the off-road-oriented PRO-4X model gets a sharper look with a new satin-chrome grille, dark wheel finish, dark-finish skid plate, and new graphics. SV and SL models get new step rails.

The Nissan Titan had a trendsetting macho style when it was introduced nearly a decade ago, and it still looks good today.

Inside, the Titan shows its age in more obvious ways. With rather dull and plasticky materials, and a look that in some ways tries to look like a more upright version of a Nissan car interior--albeit one from a decade ago--the Titan strikes an off-chord. But there's nothing functionally wrong with it; the rival models have just come so far in so little time with tight detailing, soft-touch materials, and unique truck interiors.

Across the lineup, a new four-spoke steering wheel replaces the three-spoke design for 2013, and the PRO-4X off-road model gets new white-stitching accents and seat embroidery.
