2013 Nissan Titan Full-Size Pickup Offers Revised PRO-4X Appearance, New Exterior Colors and Moonroof/DVD Packages– Continues to Offer Innovative Bed Features, Standard 317-Horsepower 5.6-liter V8 –
Since introduction, the powerful full-size Nissan Titan has established a reputation as a rugged, reliable, spirited choice for active truck buyers. It offers a range of innovations, including the first-in-class Útili-track™ cargo-carrying system, available durable spray-on bedliner, lockable bedside storage compartment, Wide-Open rear doors (King Cab) and the longest Crew Cab bed in class*. For 2013, Titan continues as a truck designed to get the job done, whether that job entails hauling cargo, a trailer or just family and friends.
Titan is again offered in a range of body, bed and drivetrain configurations to fit a variety of buyer needs and uses: King Cab and Crew Cab body styles, a choice of 4x4 and 4x2 drive configurations, two wheelbases (138.8 inches and 159.5 inches), three bed lengths and four well-equipped trim levels – S, SV, PRO-4X and SL. Titan is also available as a Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) designed to run on E85 Ethanol.
A number of enhancements are offered for 2013, starting wîth a new tailgate design wîth aerodynamic rear spoiler, along wîth additions and revised content for the various models and equipment packages.
Titan PRO-4X receives a refreshed exterior appearance, wîth revised graphics, satin chrome grille, dark wheel finish and bright silver-finish lower radiator skid plate – along wîth a revised interior appearance wîth white stitching accents (previously red), new logo design and Titan embroidery for cloth seats (leather-appointed seats maintain PRO-4X embroidery). Step rails are added as standard on SV and SL models and a standard 120V outlet is added to the truck bed on SL models (optional on SV and PRO-4X Premium Útility Packages). New styled-steel wheels are added to S models and mudguards are now standard on SL models. PRO-4X/SL Moonroof and DVD Packages are added to the list of available options.
Also, a Display Audio/ÚSB/Satellite radio is added as standard on PRO-4X (also available in SV Value Truck Package), wîth NissanConnectSM wîth Navigation/ÚSB standard on SL and optional on the PRO-4X Luxury Package (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately). The revised exterior color selection includes seven new colors: Pearl White, Espresso Black, Glacier White, Gun Metallic, Graphite Blue, Java Metallic and Cayenne Red, along wîth Galaxy Black and Brilliant Silver.
Titan is built on Nissan's rugged F-Alpha pickup platform, featuring a powerful 5.6-liter DOHC Endurance V8 rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft torque and a standard 5-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) Titan has a maximum towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds for King Cab and 9,400 pounds for Crew Cab (when properly equipped).
While Titan is first and foremost designed for hard work and hard play, an array of technology and comfort features are available, including Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), NissanConnectSM wîth Navigation system, Rockford Fosgate audio system, heated front seats, leather-appointed seating and a DVD entertainment center wîth 8.0-inch screen.
A Generous Bed wîth Útili-Track™ Bed Channel System
The Titan exterior is anchored by a distinctive, powerful front end and cab appearance and an innovative generous utility bed design. A new tailgate design is offered for all 2013 models wîth an aerodynamic spoiler, and step rails are now standard on SV and SL models.
Titan King Cab offers a 139.8-inch wheelbase and 79.1-inch bed, while the Titan Crew Cab features a 139.8-inch wheelbase and 67.3-inch bed. The Crew Cab SV Long Wheelbase model features a 159.5-inch wheelbase and an 87.0-inch bed, nearly 20 inches longer than the standard wheelbase Crew Cab bed and the longest in class.
Titan King Cab models also feature Wide-Open rear doors, which open 168 degrees for easy rear cab access. Key to the door's design is a hefty, two-stage hinge wîth four axis of rotation. The doors open first to a conventional 85 degrees, then can be swung the rest of the way for easy loading and unloading of cargo or passengers.
Titan's available spray-on bedliner (standard on SL models) helps prevent scratch damage and corrosion to the bed and inner tailgate surface. Thinner than drop-in bedliners or typical aftermarket spray-on applications, the Titan bedliner also maximizes bed volume.
Also available is the Útili-track™ Bed Channel System, wîth five special 'C' cross-section rails that are mounted in the bed (two channels in the bed floor, and one each on the bed side rails and the bed header panel). Titan is the only truck to offer five channels. Removable heavy-duty utility cleats (rated at 200 pounds) slide into the channels, providing a wide range of attachment points for tying down cargo. The channels are open at the rear of the bed, allowing the cleats to be completely removed when not in use for easy cleaning. To further maximize Titan's utility, Nissan offers an extensive line of bed accessories, including dividers, extenders, sliding cargo trays, modular storage units, bike and kayak racks and other accessories.
As required for a working pickup, the Titan bed also carries 4x8-foot plywood sheets between the wheel housings. Titan's bed includes an available dampened tailgate assist that aids in the effort to open and close the tailgate. Titan also features an available innovative bedside storage compartment located behind the rear driver's side wheel (SV, PRO-4X and SL models). The bedside storage bin is designed to hold common utility items such as work gloves, chains, rope, road flares, first aid kit or a hitch ball. The compartment is double-sealed to help prevent the intrusion of water and dust and uses the Titan ignition key for unlocking.
A Powerful, Refined Engine wîth Outstanding Towing Power
The 2013 Nissan Titan utilizes a rugged, fully boxed high-strength all-steel F-Alpha platform for crash performance and long-term durability. Every Titan comes equipped wîth Nissan's advanced Endurance V8 as standard equipment. The all-aluminum 5.6-liter V8 engine is rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque and utilizes an aluminum block wîth cast iron cylinder liners, forged steel crankshaft, microfinished crankshaft and camshaft, graphite-coated pistons, 6-bolt main bearing caps and super silent single-stage timing chain. Titan is available wîth Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) technology as a no-cost option (available in certain regions only). Equipped wîth a common fuel tank designed to run on varying blends of gasoline wîth ethanol (up to E85), Titan FFV offers an alternative to conventional gasoline. All Titans feature a 28-gallon fuel tank, providing an excellent driving range.
Titan's standard 5-speed automatic transmission is designed especially for truck use, wîth emphasis on serious towing and smooth shift quality. A transmission temperature gauge is included in the meter cluster on SV, PRO-4X and SL models. An Active Brake Limited-Slip Differential (2-wheel or 4-wheel) is standard on both 4x2 and 4x4 models.
Titan 4x4 models adapt an advanced shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive system wîth 2WD/4HI/4LO modes wîth electronic control part-time transfer case. Titan features a maximum towing capacity of 9,500 pounds for King Cab and 9,400 pounds for Crew Cab (when properly equipped) – as much as some 3/4-ton pickups.
Titan's responsive handling is a product of its all-steel double wishbone front suspension design and overslung leaf spring (dual rate) rear suspension wîth shackles mounted along the frame sides to increase departure angle. Power-assisted rack-and-pinion §teering is standard, along wîth 4-wheel disc brakes wîth Bosch Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist.
Titan offers new styled-steel 18-inch wheels on S models, wîth 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels standard on SV models (optional on Titan S). PRO-4X models feature dark finish off-road style 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, while 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are standard on the Titan SL. Crew Cab SV models are offered wîth optional 18-inch chrome-clad aluminum-alloy wheels and 20-inch chrome-plated aluminum-alloy wheels are optional on SL models.
A Comfortable, Highly Refined Interior
Titan's interior features refined styling and two interior configurations – a bench seat wîth column shifter (seats six) or two front bucket seats wîth a large center console and gated floor shifter (seats five). The bench seat is standard on S and SV models, while captains seats are standard on the PRO-4X and SL models and available as part of the SV Value Truck Package (SV models). The bucket seat-equipped Titan's center console can hold a variety of beverage containers, including a one-liter bottle. A 12-volt adapter is equipped in the back of the center console and can be used as a power source for a phone or other electronic devices. The console offers a variety of storage choices, wîth size adjusted by simply removing or adding dividers. The console's storage box can also accommodate hanging file folders and contains holders for maps, paper, pens and business cards on the console lid.
Also available among Titan's many interior features are standard flip-up 60/40 rear seat cushions for added cargo space and flexibility – wîth available grocery hooks on the bottom of the seat cushions. The rear floor is designed to be nearly flat for maximum cargo utility.
The Crew Cab's rear seat is large and relaxing, wîth a full 24 degrees of seat back angle, helping passengers take full advantage of the Crew Cab Titan's 125.6 cubic feet of available space, including front and rear seat leg room of 41.8 inches and 40.4 inches, respectively.
Both King Cab and Crew Cab Titans' rear compartments offer ample rear storage, including door storage bins and rear door bottle holders in the armrests and available power front windows wîth one-touch auto up/down function (not available on King Cab S models). All Titan Crew Cab models feature a standard power down/up rear bed access cab window.
An available overhead console system gives passengers more storage options. The console contains storage bins for both front and rear passengers for items like sunglasses, CDs, cell phone, PDA or a small tissue box. Titan features an available fold-flat front passenger seat that allows extra versatility and can also be used as a working area. Also available are power-adjustable front seats (8-way driver's seat, 4-way passenger's seat), a driver's seat memory system and heated seats. Titan also offers available power-adjustable foot pedals wîth memory. Crew Cab PRO-4X and SL models offer an optional rear-seat DVD Entertainment System wîth fold-down eight-inch monitor.

The 2013 Nissan Titan is assembled by Nissan North America in Canton, Mississippi.
In 2005 the Titan was officially debuted and launched as a full size pickup truck. The extended cab's rear door-opening back doors didn't open independently of the fronts, but are hinged to open flat against the side of the body. The truck came in two sizes, the four-door extended cab and the four door crew cab. Both of these models were available in the XE, SE and LE versions. The length of the Cargo-bed for the crew cab was 5.5 feet and 6.5 feet for the extended cab. All three of the models were powered by a 5.6-Liter V8 engine with 305 horsepower. The Titan is capable of towing approximately 9500 lbs. Edmunds.com listed it as the best full-size truck. In 2004 the Titan was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award.
A strong competitor for large domestic pickups in performance, utility, available safety features and comfort, along with its smooth, powerful V8, the Titan is among the quickest large trucks off the line. With competitive 9500-lb towing capacity and ample passing power, the Titan was quite a beast, but it was a thirsty beast. The Titan 4WD XE Crew Cab averaged 14.5 in mixed city/highway use, and only 12.1 mpg in just city driving. Possibly the most nimble pickup, the Titan is relatively easy to drive with its large, simple easy to read gauges and generously sized controls. Inside the Titan the quality is considered quite solid, only slightly deterred by the lightweight plastic bin covers with plenty of bins and cup holders in both cab styles.
While the SE and the LE came with bucket seats in the front and column-mounted transmission lever, the XE version came with a bench seat in the front. All models could seat up to three people and were equipped with a bench seat in the back. The Titan was available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive that had to be disengaged on dry pavement but included low-range gearing. Standard was ABS. Standard with 4WD was traction control, optional with 2WD. Optional was an antiskid system, along with front side torso airbags and curtain side airbags for both seating rows. On the LE power-adjustable pedals were standard, and optional on SE. All new for a pickup, the Titan featured a locking storage compartment in the left rear fender, and a fold-flat front-passenger seat. The Titan shared its powertrain and chassis with Nissan's Armada large SUV.
For 2005, the crew cabs came equipped with power windows in the rear. No changes were made in 2006. The engine horsepower was increased from 305 to 317 in 2007.
For 2008, the Titan came out in two body styles, the extended cab and crew cab. The extended cab was available with either a 6.6-foot cargo bed or an 8-foot cargo bed. The crew cab was available with either a 5.6-foot cargo bed or a 7-foot bed. For this year the Titan was available in four models; the SE, XE, the 4WD Pro-4X and the LE, all four of them were powered by a 5.6-Liter V8 engine with 317 horsepower, and all have a five speed automatic transmission. Also for this year, all Titans received a revised front-end appearance.
The Titan XE version came with 18-inch tires, a split bench seat in the front, cruise control, a stereo system with a CD player and air conditioning. The SE came equipped with 18-inch tires, fully powered accessories, front caption chairs, a CD changer in the dashboard, leather seats, power-heated mirrors and an overhead console. The Nissan Pro-4X came with Rancho shock absorbers, all terrain tires and heavy-duty skid plates. The LE came with a spray factory applied bed liner, 20 inch tires, specialized cargo tie-down tracks, adjustable powered front seats, a system that assisted the driver with parking, power adjustable pedals, Bluetooth connectivity and a stereo system manufactured by Rockford Fosgate.By Jessica Donaldson
