The Titan is an honest truck, but it's restricted due to its single engine option and limited load capacity. With a 5.6-liter naturally-aspirated V8 being the only engine option available, it's not the most practical or economical workhorse around. We appreciate an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto being standard even on the entry-level model, not to mention Nissan's Safety Shield 360. It's a reasonably comprehensive baseline spec, but apart from the S, there are three other trims to select from. Each trim builds on the one before it, adding a luxury layer to disguise the basic workhorse better. High-end models get leather seats with front seat heaters, power-adjustable front seats, a moonroof, and a nine-inch infotainment system. The Pro-4X model is quite interesting, coming out of the factory equipped for proper off-roading.
The most affordable Titan is the base King Cab S with an MSRP of $38,810, while the Crew Cab SV retails for $44,060. Following this is the Pro-4X Crew Cab in 4x4 guise at $51,700 and the Platinum Reserve Crew Cab at $57,500. These prices represent each of the four trims in their cheapest form, but options, cab style, and the drivetrain choice will increase the price. For example, you'll pay $1,770 more to upgrade the S from a King Cab to a Crew Cab, or $3,260 to upgrade the cheapest King Cab from 4x2 to 4x4. The most expensive model is the Crew Cab Platinum Reserve with 4x4 which costs $60,780.
The price of the Nissan Titan excludes the company's shipping and handling for US customers, which costs $1,695.
Nissan chose the optional packages to suit the nature of the vehicles. The entry-level King Cab S is available with minor but useful extras like the Accessory Utility Package for $795 with its trailer hitch and bumper step. The SV King Cab adds even more practicality, as you can add a Tow Package for $790 and a Utility Package for $1,690. The Tow Package may seem cheap, but you have to equip the Utility Package to get it.
The Pro-4X is available with a $2,190 Utility Package that adds LED bed illumination, the Utili-track channel system, and the premium Fender sound system, to name just a few. Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve models can be had with a $1,490 moonroof, while the latter model has its own $1,390 Utility Package that adds Titan boxes for secure small-item storage in the bed and a rear bumper step for the vertically challenged. Notably, this package requires the moonroof option to also be equipped.
The base King Cab models are workhorses, so if that's what you're after, go for one of them.
When it comes to Crew Cabs, we reckon the Pro-4X offers the best value for money. Starting at $51,700, it looks quite cool in the optional Baja Storm exterior hue. The interior also looks stunning, thanks to the red contrast stitching. The standard spec on this model is already good. Nissan's Safety Shield is standard, as are LED headlights, a locking rear differential, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and the bigger nine-inch infotainment system.
