2020 Nissan Titan

2020 Nissan Titan Test Drive Review: Missing The 'It' Factor

by Jared Rosenholtz

The name 'Titan' imparts gigantic size and power, as well as the greatness of achievement, but in the case of the Nissan Titan pickup truck, this name may be wishful thinking. Not only is the Titan far from the largest or most powerful full-size pickup truck available, but it also sits dead last in the sales race, and it's not even particularly close. The Ford F Series dominated last year with 896,526 units, followed by the Ram 1500 (633,694 units), then the Chevrolet Silverado (575,603), GMC Sierra (232,323), and Toyota Tundra (111,673). The Titan ranks as a distant sixth with 31,514 units sold, a figure that Nissan is eager to change.

To turn Titan sales in a positive direction, Nissan has facelifted the truck for the 2020 model year. The changes include a revised front end design, class-leading standard V8 power, a new nine-speed automatic transmission, a simplified configuration roster, more standard safety technology, and technology improvements in the cabin. To see if Nissan's facelift is a titanic success or a colossal failure, we were sent a 2020 Titan SL Crew Cab with 4x4 to drive for a week, including moving to a new apartment.

2020 Nissan Titan Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2019 Titan?

For the 2020 model year, Nissan has made numerous changes to the Titan, which has the challenging task of battling with the Ford F-150 in the US, beginning with more aggressive "Powerful Warrior" styling. The new headlights now produce 120 percent more light output with the low beams than the pre-facelift version. The 5.6-liter V8 engine has been retuned and now provides a more potent 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. It has also been paired with a new nine-speed automatic, which replaces the seven-speeder used previously. Last year's Single Cab has been dropped from the lineup entirely due to slow sales, so only King Cab and Crew Cab configurations are offered for 2020. Standard across the range is Nissan's Safety Shield 360 safety suite which includes features like rear automatic braking. In the cabin, the updates include a new smartphone holder/charging system, while a much-needed update to the infotainment interface introduces an eight-inch color touchscreen and a larger nine-inch screen on upper trims.

Pros and Cons

  • Burly V8 engine is even more powerful
  • Improved automatic transmission
  • Safety tech is now much more competitive
  • Bold styling works well
  • Infotainment system is easy to use
  • Refined on the open road
  • Just one engine on offer
  • New transmission hasn't improved fuel efficiency
  • The back seat feels small by truck standards
  • Not the best towing capacity in the class
  • Doesn't stand out in any one area
  • Interior doesn't feel "trucky"

Titan Exterior

The latest Titan has a more confident appearance than before, and Nissan's changes have mostly been successful. The updated grille and LED daytime running lights with a distinctive "double boomerang" design work equally well in images and in person, giving the truck more presence. As before, the trim you choose will alter the appearance, with those flashy DRLs only standard on the Pro-4X trims and above, for instance. On less expensive models, 18-inch steel wheels are used, but upper trims have 20-inch alloy wheels. Pricier trims also have LED fog lights, aluminum running boards, and an available dual-panel panoramic moonroof.

Dimensions

Regardless of whether you go for the King or Crew Cab, the Titan has a 139.8-inch wheelbase, while the length is 228.2 inches for all models besides the Pro-4X, which has a length of 229.5 inches. That makes the Titan over 10 inches shorter than the longest version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Other vital dimensions include a width of between 79.5 and 80.7 inches and a height of between 75.1 and 77.2 inches. With 10.6 inches of ground clearance with the skid plate and 9.8 inches at the rear axle, the King Cab Pro-4X has the best ground clearance in the range. The maximum approach/breakover/departure angles work out to 22.8/21.7/23 inches, but this varies by trim. However, with the tow hitch removed, the maximum departure angle increases to 26.8 inches.

Regardless of the model you go for, the bed width is 63.8 inches. However, the King Cab has a bed length of 78.7 inches (around 6.5 feet) relative to the Crew Cab's 67 inches (around 5.5 feet). For both, the bed width between the wheel wells is 50 inches.

The lightest Titan is the King Cab SV 4x2 at 5,487 pounds, while the heaviest variant in the range is the Crew Cab SL 4x4 with a weight of 5,919 lbs.

  • Length 228.1 in
  • Wheelbase 139.8 in
  • Height 75.4 in
  • Max Width 79.5 in

Exterior Colors

A color palette of nine shades includes four new additions for this year: Super Black, Red Alert, Baja Storm, and Cardinal Red metallic. Colors carried over from last year are Gun metallic, Brilliant Silver metallic, Pearl White TriCoat, Glacier White, and Deep Blue Pearl. As is often the case, color availability varies by trim, with the base King Cab S only having access to Red Alert, Super Black, Brilliant Silver metallic, and Glacier White. To access Cardinal Red metallic and Pearl White TriCoat, you'll need to go for at least the Crew Cab SL - both of these premium shades will add $395 to the base price. While photos don't always get the message across perfectly, there's something appealingly rugged about the army-like Baja Storm in the metal, which is only available on the off-road-focused Pro-4X.

Nissan Titan Reviews: Performance

Nissan has tuned the 5.6-liter V8 engine to generate an improved 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque this year, though you have to run premium fuel to reach those figures. It's now paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and either 4x2 or 4x4. While a high top speed and blistering quarter-mile times are less critical in a truck, the V8 does an excellent job of getting the Titan up to speed reasonably quickly and without strain. Independent tests have shown the Crew Cab Pro-4X accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.3 seconds, which isn't remarkable, but as this is one of the heaviest models in the range, others should prove quicker. Nissan claims that the new gearbox has shaved nearly a second off the time it takes to get from 50 to 70 mph, a far more useful metric. A maximum towing capacity of 9,370 lbs applies to the 4x2 King Cab models, which isn't bad, but falls short of the competition. For example, the Ford F-150 can tow over 13,000 lbs. That said, the Titan's towing ability should suffice for most needs.

Engine and Transmission

Although Nissan touts the Titan's powertrain as offering best-in-class standard power and torque figures, this is only a technicality because competitors offer lower-powered options and a more diverse engine lineup. Nevertheless, the 5.6-liter naturally aspirated Endurance V8 engine is stout with 400 hp and 413 lb-ft, up from 390 hp/394 lb-ft last year. As a downside, you do have to run premium juice to reach Nissan's peak output claims.

A new nine-speeder has replaced the previous seven-speed automatic with a larger final gear ratio. This new transmission feels like a marked improvement over the dated seven-speed, though Ford and GM's 10-speed boxes still hold a slight edge in smoothness and refinement. Fortunately for Nissan, this new nine-speed unit puts the Titan miles ahead of the Toyota Tundra, which uses an antiquated six-speed box. The nine-speed shifts effortlessly in everyday driving and, when pressed hard, rips off quick shifts while the 5.6-liter V8 bulldozes the truck up to speed.

Handling and Driving Impressions

Unlike the legendary football flick starring Denzel Washington, we aren't sure that the 2020 Nissan Titan will be remembered for its class-leading driving characteristics. It feels more middle of the pack. Ride comfort is adequate over most surfaces, with large dips causing the cab to shake and shimmy as most pickup trucks tend to do. It feels on par with the Tundra in terms of ride softness but still trails the class-leading Ram for road manners. While comfort is acceptable, the Titan's steering feels like a weak point. The rack feels unacceptably heavy at slow speeds, though it does lighten up when you get on the move. We've noted this same flaw in other Nissan vehicles that have not been updated recently (like the Murano and Pathfinder).

Nissan hasn't included any superfluous drive modes, save for a Tow Mode located on the column-mounted shifter. While we didn't have a chance to use the included Tow Mode during our week of testing, it should come in handy along with a gear selection mode should you want to haul heavy items. When the pavement ends, a selectable 4x4 system is controlled using a simple dial below the starter button. However, it is worth noting that Nissan's 4x4 system is only part-time, not full-time, as found in competitors.

Titan Pickup Gas Mileage

The 2020 Nissan Titan truck manages best EPA-rated consumption figures of 16/22/18 mpg on the city/highway/combined cycles when in 4x2 guise. Although the combined rating is the same as last year's model, the city/highway figures have each increased by one mpg. Proving less efficient is the 4x4 model, which returns 15/21/18 mpg. The Pro-4X fares worse, still, with claims of 15/21/17 mpg. With just one engine choice, the Titan loses out to the competition here as the most efficient Ford F-150 turbodiesel manages 21/29/24 mpg, and the Ram 1500 can return up to 22/32/26 mpg. We averaged around 15 mpg during a week of mostly city driving in our 4x4 tester. A 26-gallon gas tank is standard across the range, and on a full tank of the recommended premium gasoline, the Titan will manage a maximum combined range of around 468 miles.

Titan Interior

The facelifted Titan pickup interior isn't drastically different from last year's model, but the changes that have been incorporated are worthwhile, such as the improved infotainment interface. Along with the bigger touchscreen, the driver also gets a larger seven-inch information display. Most of the controls are where you'd expect them to be, and there is enough space for all occupants, although it isn't class-leading in this respect. Highlighting the cabin are the Zero Gravity seats that remain comfortable even over longer distances. On base models, manually-adjustable seats and manual air conditioning are the order of the day, although you do also get blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning. Higher up in the range are features like a power-sliding rear window, dual-zone climate control, and a surround-view monitor. A massive dual-panel panoramic moonroof is available as an option.

Seating and Interior Space

Seating capacity in the Titan ranges from five to six, depending on the front seat you get. The base bench seat offers seating for three in the front row while the optional center console limits the Tian to just five passengers. In both King Cab and Crew Cab body styles, the back seats offer room for three with varying levels of comfort. Headroom is generous in both the front and rear with 41.8 and 40.4 inches respectively on Crew Cab models, dipping a couple of inches in the back on the King Cabs. Legroom is far less impressive with an acceptable 41.8 inches up front but just 38.5 inches in the back, even in the Crew Cab. Back seat riders in the King Cab will have their legs squished with only 24.8 of legroom. Competitors offer well over 40 inches of legroom in their back seats and in terms of storage, the Titan's narrow-opening rear doors make it difficult to fit large items that you don't want to throw in the bed.

  • Front Leg Room 41.8 in

  • Rear Leg Room 38.5 in
  • Rear Head Room 40.4 in

Interior Colors and Materials

As with most trucks, the experience you get in the entry-level model is markedly different from what's available higher up in the range. On the base S trim, you get simple charcoal cloth upholstery, with zero other options available. Vinyl flooring is similarly basic but easy to keep clean. Moving up to the SV adds silver metallic trim, chrome door handles, and the choice of beige cloth seats. The Pro-4X has additional chrome interior accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, carpeted floor mats with the Pro-4X logo, and charcoal cloth seats with contrast stitching. Leather-upholstered seats can, however, be added to this trim. On the more luxurious SL and Platinum Reserve trims, leather seats are standard. On the SL, these are in a choice of beige or charcoal colors, while the Platinum Reserve exclusively has premium Labrador Brown leather. The SL has wood-tone inlays while the Platinum Reserve gets open-pore wood-tone interior trim. No matter which trim you opt for, the Titan's cabin is neither the worst nor the best in terms of materials.

Titan Trunk and Cargo Space

The Titan doesn't have the cargo-hauling capabilities of other trucks in the segment, because the most significant bed size is the 6.5-foot bed in the King Cab, while the Crew Cab is limited to a 5.5-foot bed. For instance, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 offers an eight-foot bed. When properly equipped, payload capacity maxes out at 1,680 lbs, whereas both the Silverado and F-150 exceed 2,000 lbs in this aspect.

Thankfully, there are quite a few features to make the most of the available bed capacity. All models have four fixed tie-down hooks for securing items, along with a removable, lockable, and damped tailgate. On the top two Crew Cab trims, the Utili-track Channel System is standard and comprises four aluminum alloy cleats that move along the walls and can be locked in place. Cargo bed lights and LED lights beneath the bed rail are also equipped to these higher trims and are standard on select other models.

Interior storage has been improved this year with the addition of a new smartphone holder/charger. At least six cupholders are standard on every model, but on higher trims, there are eight. Most versions have a well-sized center console with removable organizers and all have a locking glove compartment. A 60/40-split rear seat is standard with fold-down seatbacks and, on Crew Cabs, there is a flip-down center armrest.

Titan Infotainment and Features

Features

On the entry-level Titan, you can expect features like manual air conditioning, a manual tilt/telescoping steering column, a 12-volt power outlet in the dash, remote keyless entry with push-button start, and a seven-inch driver information display. In addition to a rearview camera, driver assistance technologies include lane departure warning, a driver alert system, forward collision warning, blind-spot warning, trailer sway control, a rear sonar system, and hill start assist. From the Pro-4X trim and above, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat is standard. The more luxurious Crew Cab's top two trims come with amenities like a power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated front seats, power-adjustable mirrors with a tilt-down reverse function, puddle lights, a power-sliding rear window, and an around-view monitor. On the Platinum Reserve, cooled front seats are standard.

Infotainment

Nissan has struggled with infotainment for years but has finally hit a stride recently. At eight inches, the Titan boasts the largest standard touchscreen in the segment, though the larger nine-inch screen is still outclassed by the Ram 1500 and upcoming F-150. Our SL tester packed the nine-inch unit, which offers clear graphics, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, satellite radio, Bluetooth, built-in navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Lesser models feature six speakers, but our tester came with the 12-speaker Fender sound system. Along with a seven-inch gauge cluster display, the new infotainment system is a welcomed addition to the Titan's cabin, but it feels a tad too late as competitors are set to offer larger screens with wireless CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and better towing features.

Titan Problems and Reliability

A solid J.D. Power rating of 84 out of a possible 100 is matched by zero recalls for 2020 so far, indicating that the Titan provides all the reliability you'd expect from a Japanese truck. The 2019 model doesn't have an unblemished record, though, with two total recalls; one was for a missing rearview camera display image. Another was for a possible engine stall caused by an alternator harness that could short.

In previous Nissan Titan reviews, we've noted the strong warranty, and that remains the case for 2020. Every Nissan Titan comes with an excellent five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty along with a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Corrosion coverage is offered for a period of five years. Along with this, 24-hour roadside assistance is offered for three years or after covering a mileage of 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Warranty

  • Basic:
    5 Years \ 100,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain:
    5 Years \ 100,000 Miles
  • Corrosion:
    5 Years \ Unlimited Miles
  • Roadside Assistance:
    3 Years \ 36,000 Miles

Titan Safety

The NHTSA has only partially tested the King Cab Titan, awarding a four-star rating for its rollover protection. The Crew Cab has been fully tested, however, with its review yielding a four-star overall rating. Over at the IIHS, there is no full rating for the Nissan Titan, with only Good scores for the head restraints and seats, and roof strength tests for the Crew Cab, and nothing more than a Good rating for the head restraints/seats in the King Cab. However, last year's model did manage Good ratings for the overlap front tests and the side crash test.

Key Safety Features

Regardless of the trim chosen, every Titan comes with essentials like tire pressure monitoring, eight airbags (including knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger), ABS/EBD brakes, hill start assist, traction control, and trailer sway control. The Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite is standard across the Titan lineup and packs in a host of driver-assist technologies like a rearview camera, cruise control, lane departure warning, a driver alert system, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and rear automatic braking. On higher trims, traffic sign recognition, front parking sensors, a surround-view monitor, and rain-sensing wipers are fitted.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2020 Nissan Titan a good car?

The full-size pickup truck segment is, by far, the most competitive and hard-fought arena in the automotive industry with the most loyal customers. Stealing a customer away from one of the big three American automakers is next to impossible and unfortunately, we can't foresee too many Ford, GM, or Ram owners jumping ship just because the Titan now has a new transmission and a better infotainment system. The Titan does well offering a standard V8, strong safety technology, and a compliant ride, but these are features that can be found elsewhere in other trucks.

If you walk into the dealership to buy one of the American trucks, you will likely see stronger incentives, making the effective cost lower than the Nissan, even if the MSRP is higher. Those companies have also been building trucks for much longer and have a better feel for what truck owners crave. We just can't see one particular area where the Titan excels over its rivals and for that reason, we do not believe this facelift was enough to steal sales away from any of the big three. The aging Tundra still possesses a rabid fanbase who applaud it for Toyota's famed reliability. The Titan feels a bit more refined and modern inside but Nissan may still face an uphill battle getting Tundra owners switch brands.

🚘What's the Price of the 2020 Nissan Titan?

The Nissan Titan's price has risen substantially at base level since last year, but this is because the cheaper Single Cab has been dropped. For 2020, the cheapest model is the S trim in King Cab 4x2 guise at an MSRP of $36,190. Following this is the SV at $39,990 before a big leap to the Pro-4X at $47,590. At the more luxurious end of the range, the SL begins at $53,990 and the Platinum Reserve goes for $55,490. All prices are exclusive of tax, licensing, registration, and a destination/handling charge of $1,595.

All versions are 4x2 by default besides the Pro-4X. Upgrading from 4x2 to 4x4 on all versions will add $3,200 to the price, besides on the Crew Cab S and SV, where the upgrade will cost $3,100. If you're undecided between which body style to go for, consider that the Crew Cab S 4x2 costs an additional $2,700 over and above the King Cab's price. How much is a fully loaded Titan Crew Cab Platinum Reserve 4x4 with a couple of options ticked? Expect to cough up over $70,000.

2020 Nissan Titan Models

The Nissan Titan is available in a choice of five trims: S, SV, Pro-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. All trims are equipped as standard with a 5.6-liter V8 engine generating 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, along with a nine-speed automatic transmission. 4x2 is standard across the lineup except on the Pro-4X, which has 4x4 fitted as standard. However, 4x4 is optionally available on every other trim.

The S comes standard with 18-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, and a dampened assist tailgate. Inside, basic cloth upholstery covers the manually adjustable seats. Amenities include air conditioning, remote keyless entry, an eight-inch touchscreen display, a six-speaker sound system, and safety gear like lane departure warning and blind-spot warning.

Moving up a step to the SV avails 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome front bumper, and heated exterior mirrors. It also opens up a number of options such as front parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, and navigation with the larger nine-inch touchscreen.

The off-road-focused Pro-4X comes with 4x4 and an electronic locking rear differential as standard. It also has LED headlights, high-gloss gray painted bumpers, a lower radiator skid plate, four- and seven-pin towing connectors, an eight-way power driver's seat, and a nine-inch touchscreen display.

The SL is the first trim that is restricted to the Crew Cab body style and comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, fixed aluminum running boards, leather-upholstered seats, heated front seats, a powered front passenger seat, and a 12-speaker sound system.

On the range-topping Platinum Reserve, additional features encompass two-tone exterior paint, a satin-finished front grille, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel with a wood-tone insert, and premium leather upholstery.

Additional Packages

A range of packages and standalone options allows for a reasonable level of customization of the Titan. The base trim has fewer available upgrades, though. On the King Cab S 4x2, the S Utility Package goes for $990 and adds a front overhead storage console, a spray-on bedliner, and a Class IV tow hitch receiver. Individual options on this specific truck include 18-inch alloy wheels ($980) and remote engine start ($275).

The SV King Cab offers a lot more in terms of upgrades, such as the $2,440 SV Convenience Package that adds an eight-way power driver's seat, the larger nine-inch touchscreen display, front parking sensors, and heated front seats. This model's standalone accessories extend to a rear-seat entertainment system for $1,990. For the Pro-4X, there's the Pro-4X Utility Package at $2,190 that adds LED tailgate area lighting, the Utili-track Channel System, a premium Fender audio system, and more. On the Pro-4X Crew Cab, the $1,490 Moonroof Package adds heated/cooled front seats along with an expansive dual-panel panoramic moonroof. It's also possible to spec the moonroof on the SL and Platinum Reserve.

Even the range-topping Platinum Reserve can be upgraded. For $1,390, the Platinum Reserve Utility Package adds an electronic tailgate lock, a rear bumper step, and Titan boxes.

🚗What New Nissan Titan Model Should I Buy?

Nissan has significantly reduced the number of trims and packages available on the 2020 Titan, but there is still plenty of choice to be had. We think the Pro-4X is the best value of the bunch, starting at $49,790 for the larger Crew Cab model. The Pro-4X includes 4x4 as standard and looks the most aggressive of the bunch, especially when finished in the exclusive Baja Storm color. For those who do not need the Pro-4X's off-road chops, the SL trim (starting at $57,190 for the 4x4 Crew Cab) is nicely equipped, but we could do without the chrome grille and wheels that come unless you opt for a pricey wheel option. With the panoramic roof and tow package, you can expect to pay just under $60,000 for the Titan SL.

2020 Nissan Titan vs Toyota Tundra

Much like the new Nissan Titan, the Toyota Tundra is a tough competitor from Japan but one that lacks the ultimate sophistication of newer trucks like the Ram 1500. The Tundra also has just one large-capacity V8 on offer that makes 381 hp and 401 lb-ft, so the Titan has the edge in output. The Nissan uses a quicker-shifting nine-speed automatic, whereas the Toyota makes do with a dated six-speeder. However, the Tundra has a superior maximum towing capacity of over 10,000 lbs. The Toyota has three available bed sizes, including a longest 8.1-foot bed that the Titan can't match, so the Tundra is the better cargo-hauler. Both trucks have rugged rather than luxurious cabins, although we'd give the Nissan the slight edge here. If it's the most capable and dependable truck you're after, the Tundra edges it, but as an all-rounder, the updated Titan takes it by a whisker.

2020 Nissan Titan vs Ford F-150

Even though the Ford F-150 is up for replacement soon, it's not the best-selling truck in the USA for no reason. An immediate advantage in the F-150's favor is the diversity within its range: there are three bed lengths, three different cab sizes, and six engines offering everything from an efficient turbodiesel to a 450-hp turbocharged V6. As a result, the F-150 offers cheaper alternatives than the Titan and more powerful, luxurious options at the top of the range. The Ford is a superb hauler, with a towing capacity far exceeding that of the Titan's at circa 13,000 lbs. Inside, it feels classier than the Titan, although the Nissan now has a superior array of standard driver-assistance features. At the end of the day, the Ford just offers too much for the Nissan to overcome and emerges as the easy pick.
