Keeping it Simple
The Nissan Titan isn't the sales leader in the full-size truck segment, but where the Titan does excel is in simplicity. You can choose extended (King) cab or Crew Cab, short or long bed and two- or four-wheel drive, but there is one engine, one transmission and one axle ratio, making this the easiest half-ton to order on the market. And changes are coming that may make the Titan a genuine contender against the likes of the F-150, Ram 1500 and Silverado.
Some impressions from our full review: "The 2014 Nissan Titan's engine isn't the most powerful V8 in its class, but it's far from tepid, with good punch off the line and more than enough muscle to get the job done, whether that's passing slower traffic or hauling a heavy trailer (9,500 pounds is the max towing capacity) up a long grade."
A New Titan Is Coming
After more than 10 years on the market in essentially the same form as when it debuted, Nissan will finally introduce a new Titan at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nissan has officially announced that the new Titan will be available with a V8 turbodiesel under the hood.
Build and Price
The Nissan Titan starts out at just above $30,000 for a two-wheel-drive King Cab. Choose the Crew Cab with four-wheel drive and all the bells and whistles, and that price climbs to nearly $48,000.

Titan owner Northern NJ is thoroughly impressed with the Titan's value: "I have owned my fully loaded 2014 PRO-4X Titan for over a month and could not be happier. Yes the MPG is bad. I'm averaging around 14.2 mpg, but I knew that going in. It's no secret. What I can say is that you'll spend roughly $7,000 less than on a comparably equipped Ram 1500, Sierra or Tundra...the other three trucks I tested. For the money, there is no better value."
