The Titan exterior wears a bold front end and cab design, highlighted by a standard 138.9-inch wheelbase.
Both King Cab and Crew Cab Titans feature a spacious and functional interior design, with easy-to-use controls and numerous storage bins.
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.
For 2015, Nissan has discontinued the long-wheelbase Titan, and the interior door panels have redesigned. With those as the exceptions, Titan looks the same now as it did when it debuted eleven years ago. Even so, it remains an attractive truck–at least from the exterior–though we've started to wonder if Nissan's design team has simply forgotten that it exists in the lineup.
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.
From the exterior, it's bold and overwrought, but it doesn't go so far as to look cartoonish, like the Toyota Tundra. There's a lot of chrome that helps frame its aggressive, upright look, and the upgraded wheels help give the design a little extra oomph, too. The Titan gained a new, more aerodynamic tailgate design last year, and the PRO-4X model received a few styling updates, too.
The Nissan Titan's advanced age still shows some signs of styling youth.
