NEW FOR 2011:

– XE trim line renamed S
– SE trim line renamed SV
– LE renamed SL; adds chrome wheels and step rails
– 4×4 tailgate badge added to S, SV and SL four-wheel drive models

For 2011, the Nissan Titan pickup truck is unchanged except for its name. The XE, SE and LE trim lines are now the S, SV and SL. The PRO-4X retains its name. Four-wheel models receive a badge, and the SL adds chrome wheels and step rails.

All Titan models use a 5.6-litre V8 engine, shared with the Armada and Pathfinder, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The King Cab has two small rear-hinged doors that open 168 degrees, while the Crew Cab has four independently-opening doors.

The Titan is available in King Cab or Crew Cab configuration. The King comes in S trim in 4×2; SV in 4×2 and 4×4; PRO-4X in 4×4; and SL in 4×4. The Crew Cab is 4×4 only, and comes in S; SV in short- or long-wheelbase; PRO-4X; and SL trim.

Features on the S include 18-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cloth 40/20/40 front bench seat, CD player, cruise control, and manual mirrors. The Crew Cab S also includes power windows and power locks.

The SV adds leather-wrapped steering wheel, premium cloth bucket seats, eight-way power driver’s seat, six-CD/MP3 stereo, power windows, power locks with keyless entry, heated power mirrors, colour-keyed fabric door trim, illuminated vanity mirror, and vehicle security system.

The PRO-4X adds locking differential, high-performance Rancho gas shocks, body-colour bumpers and grille, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, two-tone cloth seats, and WMA stereo capability.

The SL builds on the SE’s features and add 20-inch chrome-clad alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, chrome step rails, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, heated leather seats, four-way power passenger seat, driver’s side memory, six-CD Rockford Fosgate audio system, chrome mirrors, and power-adjustable pedals.
