With a wide array of trims and options, the 2014 Nissan Titan's roomy cabin can range from simple work truck to a near-premium feel. Base models have two cloth-upholstered bench seats and can accommodate up to six. Higher trims have two leather-covered captain's chairs up front – more comfort, but one less seating position. The Titan's rear bench folds up to create more cargo space. Also offered is a front passenger seat that folds flat to create a mobile workstation. Power-adjustable pedals (optional) help drivers achieve a comfortable position, but the steering wheel adjusts only for rake and does not telescope.
The 2014 Nissan Titan is offered in King and Crew Cab body styles. There is no regular-cab version. The larger Crew Cabs are available in long- or short-wheelbase configurations to accommodate standard and long cargo beds. While exterior styling matters in contemporary pickups, it takes a back seat to utility. It makes sense, then, that Nissan focused on adding practical features to the Titan to better help it do the work for which trucks are known: hauling stuff. To that end, available features include a 120-volt AC outlet, recessed lights, the optional Utili-Track cargo-bed system, and a lockable compartment behind the left rear wheel.
Notable Standard Equipment
A basic 2-wheel-drive (2WD) 2014 Nissan Titan S King Cab comes with air conditioning, cloth seating, a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system, a fold-up rear bench seat, washable vinyl floors, and a lockable tailgate. With an MSRP of nearly $30,000, you might be surprised to find a column shifter (due to the bench seat) and manual-adjust mirrors in your base Titan. Also lacking are features such as cruise control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and even power windows. To get those items in a 2014 Titan, you'll need to spend more money on options or step up to another trim.
Notable Optional Equipment
Options for the 2014 Nissan Titan vary by trim, with most major features bundled into packages. All Titans can be had with 4-wheel drive (4WD). Other options include comfy captain's chairs in place of the front bench seat, Nissan Connect infotainment and connectivity, Bluetooth, a USB input, a navigation system, Nissan's Utili-Track cargo-bed tie-down system, spray-on bedliner, a Rockford Fosgate premium sound system, a moonroof, a power driver's seat, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system. Titan models can also be had as flex-fuel vehicles to run on a higher blend of ethanol (E85).
Under the Hood
The 2014 Nissan Titan offers just one engine, a robust 5.6-liter V8 that makes 317 horsepower and is connected to a 5-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode. The maximum tow rating is 9,500 pounds. The engine can also be had with the ability to run on a blend up of up to 85 percent ethanol (E85). The Titan's V8 is thirstier than many competing V8 engines. Running on regular gasoline, a rear-drive Titan has a highway rating of just 18 mpg. Four-wheel-drive models are rated for 17 mpg on the highway, and city ratings are 13 mpg with 2WD, 12 mpg with 4WD. The Titan's economy ratings fall off substantially operating on E85.

EPA city/highway fuel economy: 13/18 mpg (2WD, gasoline), 12/17 mpg (4WD, gasoline), 9/13 mpg (2WD, E85), 9/12 mpg (4WD, E85)
A base 2014 Nissan Titan King Cab has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $30,265. A PRO-4X King Cab 4x4 with options can reach more than $40,000, while the top-of-the-line SL Crew Cab 4x4 starts at $44,185. The Titan's starting price is quite a bit higher than that of other full-size trucks, thanks to the absence of a standard cab model. When compared with similarly equipped models of the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado 150, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra, the Titan's price is more in line with competitors.
