NEW FOR 2012:

– Exterior colours: Airstream and Hematite Grey added

The Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck is unchanged for 2012, except for two new exterior colours.

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 adds 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.
