2007 Nissan Titan King Cab Review

By

Nissan's full-size half-ton pickup is a force to be reckoned with, especially if you're one of the big three domestic pickup manufacturers. Available in King Cab and Crew Cab configurations, the Titan is loaded with useful features, such as the King Cab's rear-hinged half doors that swing open almost 180 degrees and an infinitely-adjustable track system built into the bed. With a tow rating of 9,500 pounds and a 1,500-pound payload rating, there is not much the Titan can't handle. The Titan features a rugged body, stiff chassis, powerful engine, a modern interior and a very appealing assortment of innovative features.

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 New for 2007

No major changes for 2007.

Driving the Titan King Cab
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 that some vibration gets telegraphed through the steering wheel, and that 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. Another noteworthy feature is the Titan's optional locking rear differential, a first for this segment.

Wide-Swinging Rear Door
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.

Interior

The Titan's interior is bold and forward-thinking in its design. On certain models you can opt for a center console with a gated shifter (the shift lever moves through a slotted path) for better control when shifting gears. The seating is comfortable, though drivers over six feet may find themselves staring out through the windshield's tint band. Some drivers also felt the seat bottoms could do with a sharper upward angle to better support their thighs, so you may want to check this for yourself. You'll find the Titan's instrumentation to be clear, legible and easy to see, except for the digital odometer that all but disappears when viewed through polarized lenses.

Exterior

Nissan offers the Titan in two body styles: King Cab and Crew Cab. An optional spray-in bedliner applied at the factory covers the entire cargo bed floor and walls. The Titan cargo bed also features a built-in channel system with moveable cleats designed to provide multiple tie-down points. Outside the bed, Nissan has placed a clever storage bin just behind left the rear wheel. The Titan's ground clearance is among the best in its class, with over 10 inches measured at the rear axle. King Cab models feature a clever rear door that can swing a full 168 degrees to aid with loading.

Notable Equipment
Standard Equipment

The Titan King Cab has a 317-horsepower 5.6-liter V8, five-speed automatic transmission with a Tow/Haul mode, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes (ABS), air conditioning, full gauges, exterior cargo light, dual manual side mirrors, a rear 12-volt outlet, AM/FM stereo with CD, fuel tank skid plate, cruise control, tilt wheel, tire pressure monitor and 17-inch steel wheels. The SE and LE add even more standard features including power locks, power windows, remote keyless entry, dual heated power mirrors, a sliding rear window and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Optional Equipment

Options vary by trim and include four-wheel drive, front side and head-curtain airbags (covering the front and rear seats), off-road package, tow package, Rockford Fosgate audio, spray-in bedliner, eight-way power driver's seat, heated leather seats, rear-seat DVD entertainment system (on the Crew Cab), navigation, a locking rear differential, bed extender and a garage door opener.

Under the Hood

Unlike many of its competitors, the Titan offers only one engine choice, and it's the most powerful V8 Nissan builds. The 5.6-liter V8 produces an abundance of power, but it cannot reasonably be expected to deliver the best fuel economy.

5.6-liter V8
317 horsepower @ 5200 rpm
385 lb.-ft. of torque @ 3400 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 14/19 (2WD, Gas), 10/13 (2WD, E85), 13/18 (4WD, Gas), 14/18 (4WD, FFV Gas), 10/13 (4WD, FFV E85)

"I bought my truck new in 2006. I have put 130,000 miles on it. I tow a 28 ft. bumper pull camper trailer with this truck and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I have done very little work to this truck. I have changed out cvc joints and hanger bearing, brake pads have been replaced, replaced spiral cable/clock spring in steering wheel, Tire pressure monitor on one tire and I recently replaced the oil pressure sending unit. I think this is reasonable maintenance for a 2006 model truck that I drive every day. Thanks Nissan."

"When I purchased it the truck had 34,000 miles on it, six months after I bought it the truck broke down had to be towed it would not start the dealer fixed it just to have it break down again and have to be towed this time the catalytic converter imploded the rear seals were leaking all over the place and the right axle went bad and needed to be replaced. Two weeks after the dealer fixed it the truck broke down again and had to be towed the motor went, the ecm was fried so they had to put a new motor in it at only 50,000 miles shortly after I got my truck back the truck broke down again and would not start this time it was the fuel pump, so again it had to be towed and sent back to dealer, I have only owned the truck 5 years and in that time the fuel pump has gone bad in it 4 times, all the lights on the dashboard stay on and do not go out, now the body control modular is not working, so again it has to go back to the dealer to be fixed, this truck has been recalled more than 6 times the color on the outside is red, but it should have been painted lemon yellow. worst vehicle I have ever owned."

"This was a GREAT truck for the 1st 30,000 miles. Since then nothing but unreliability. I bought the truck new and drove it some, but not a lot. Warranty stopped after 3 years. At 5 years and 30K miles I was driving on a 50 mile trip and the motor started losing power and then stopped. I rolled into a gas station and put in 5 gal of gas. Truck started and ran fine. On my way back home it started losing power AGAIN. Pulled off road, shut off engine, waited 10 secs, restarted and it ran fine. Did this one more time going home. NEVER GOT ANY ERROR CODES. Took truck to dealer (110 miles away) for 2 minor recalls. Dealer had truck for 1 week, found nothing. When I picked it up the service manager suggested changing IPDM. A couple of weeks later I had another engine power loss. I bought a new IPDM from dealer, installed it and problem appeared to be fixed. This all happened in 2011 at 31,000 miles. Now in 2015 and 35,000 miles the problem has started AGAIN. I put in an ECM relay but it did not fix problem. I put in YET ANOTHER IPDM, problem occurred in 40 miles on a trip. Here's the kicker, I can pull over, turn off the engine, restart and have full power (for awhile). Now I had 2 error codes that pointed to the fuel pump and the MAF sensor. I replaced the fuel pump and cleaned the MAF. I then drove the truck on a 120 (240 round) trip. The truck ran fine (FIXED - NO). A month later I made the same trip and the motor quit dead (didn't lose power as before) but just quit at 80 MPH. Pulled over, turned off, restarted and had full power AGAIN. 30 miles (at 80 MPH) motor just quit again. I was in Grand Junction so I took it to the NISSAN dealer there, they checked it over (for free) and found nothing wrong. I then drove it back home and it quit DEAD 2 miles from my home. Turned off, restarted, and drove on home. A month later I took it up in the mountains and stopped on a narrow road to talk with some people. Left it idling for about 10 minutes, motor went into LIMP mode. Turned off, had to wait 20 minutes before it would run again, then it ran fine. This problem had happened 3 years earlier but I dismissed it to vapor lock because it was over 100 and I had left truck idling with AC on. Anyway, I finished my mountain trip with no further problems, even on the 50 mile trip home. Called dealer next day and they said that the most recent problem was cause by the EMC relay. Mine had less than 500 miles on it. I don't mind having to make repairs to a car or truck. BUT, when the dealer has no idea whats wrong and the truck has no less than 8 computers running the truck you would thing that the computers could tell you something useful - NOT NISSAN. Great truck if you don't travel more than 50 miles!"

"Purchased new. At the time it was the only 1/2ton truck that offered a crew cab with a long bed (7'3"). With the exception of a couple of minor electrical issues and needing a new battery, seven years later the truck is still running flawlessly."
