2008 Nissan Titan Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors


Nissan's Titan full-size pickup is a worthy competitor to long-established rivals from Dodge, Chevrolet and Ford. Although the Titan is available only as a half-ton model, its powerful engine, numerous configurations and lengthy list of clever features should appeal to most light-duty pickup owners. Designed for the urban pickup owner, the Titan is as adept at carrying bikes, kayaks and ski gear as it is hauling plywood, concrete and dirt. A new PRO-4X model suits the needs of serious off-road adventurers. The addition of a long wheelbase model this year is also a welcome addition, as is the Titan's ability to run on either gasoline or E85.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a big, powerful truck that's out of the mainstream in both style and features, has a really nice interior, a stump-pulling V8 engine and a host of innovations designed around real pickup-truck functions, take a look at the Titan.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you like the more conservatively-styled trucks from Chevrolet and Ford, the Titan may be too flashy for your taste. And the option list does not include dual rear wheels or the choice of a six-cylinder or diesel engine.

What's Significant About This Car?

The Titan receives a slight freshening with a new front end and new wheels. Redesigned seating provides better support, while new metering for the instrument cluster and center stack improves visual appeal. A long-wheelbase model joins the line, as does an off-road-ready PRO-4X model. New options include Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System, a heated leather bench seat and XM Satellite Radio.

Driving It Driving Impressions

We found the Titan's V8 engine felt strong at all speeds, with loads of power on demand. The five-speed automatic transmission shifted smoothly and the gated shifter made it easy to move between first and second gears whenever we needed to apply engine braking. You may notice some vibration gets telegraphed through the steering wheel, and there is a noticeable exhaust note upon application of the throttle. Still, the Titan delivers a smooth, controlled ride and exhibits better-than-average steering and handling response.

Favorite Features

The hinged rear door on the King Cab model swings back 168 degrees to create exceptionally convenient interior access.

Exterior Storage Box
The Titan's exterior storage box (located behind the left rear wheel) is perfect for storing such items as jumper cables or muddy clothing.
