2007 Nissan Titan Crew Cab

The Nissan Titan is the new kid on the block when it comes to V8-powered, full-size half-ton trucks. And what a V8 it is! Taking only 8.6 seconds to travel from 0-100 km/h, the big Titan was the bullet of the bunch, and was equally adept at stepping through the obstacles when negotiating the off-road challenge. Its box is equipped with a clever, slide rail, tie down system that was very useful. What let the Titan down was the cheap feel and drab colours of its interior plastics and fabrics, and its flat seats. Not that trucks are trying to win beauty contests, but in comparison with the Dodge Ram, Chevrolet Avalanche and outrageously stylish Ford F-150 King Ranch, the Titan was just not there. However, when it comes to hauling and towing, cruising and accelerating, the Titan is a force to be reckoned with.
