NEW FOR 2014:

– No changes.

Following last year’s equipment overhaul, Nissan’s half-ton pickup carries over for 2014 without any changes. Although the Titan is the oldest of the full-size trucks on the market, it offers buyers looking for a basic and reliable truck standard V8 power and strong performance.

Unlike rivals which offer a plethora of powertrain choices, all Titans come with a 5.6-litre V8 engine, shared with the Armada and Pathfinder, mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. 4×2 models are rear-wheel drive, with 4×4 as an option.
