With two cab sizes, four bed sizes, four trim levels, and a long list of options and available packages, there are dozens of ways to configure the Titan to fit the job at hand. Every Titan gets the 5.6L V8 engine, which is capable of running on E85 bio-ethanol fuel, and a 5-speed transmission. Front air bags and ABS are also standard features.
The King Cab can be matched with either a 6-foot-6-inch or 8-foot bed; the Crew Cab gets either a 5-foot-6-inch or 7-foot bed and rear half-doors that fold flat against the bed sides for easy entry. The four trim levels, from the most basic to the most feature-filled, are XE, SE, Pro-4X and LE.
The 5-passenger XE King Cab starts the model out with 168-degree Wide Open doors and a CD stereo. The 6-passenger XE Crew Cab adds power locks, windows and rear glass and two more speakers. Both are available as rear-wheel or 4-wheel drive trucks.
The SE has everything the XE does, plus 18″ alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and grille, power mirrors, remote keyless entry and 6-disc in-dash CD changer. Like the XE, it comes in either rear-wheel or 4-wheel drive.
The Pro-4X takes the features of the SE and adds off-road capabilities, like electric locking rear differential, Rancho shock absorbers, lower gear ratio, two additional skid plates, fog lights, bed lockbox, upgraded interior trim and white gauges in the dash. The Pro-4X is only available in 4-wheel drive.
The LE takes the features in the SE and adds a load of extras: 20″ alloys, automatic headlights, spray-on bedliner rear sonar system, 10-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo upgrade, Bluetooth connectivity, dual-zone temperature control, heated front seats and power adjustable pedals. It takes a few features from the Pro-4X, too, such as fog lights and bed lockbox.
All Titans now get Nissan’s Vehicle Dynamic Control and side-impact airbags as standard safety equipment.
Besides these cab sizes, bed lengths and trim levels, there are several packages of options available for the Titan: Max Utility, Side Airbags, XE Popular Equipment, SE Popular Equipment, Heavy Metal Chrome, Driver’s Convenience and Technology. Most of these packages include features that are standard on the LE version of the Titan, but some, like the Side Airbags package, is optional for all models. It includes roof-mounted airbags, side-mounted airbags and vehicle dynamic control.
The exact features included in the new Heavy Metal Chrome package depend on the model, but it generally includes chrome wheels, chrome step rails, chrome billet grille, chrome door handles, and, on the SE Crew Cab, chrome mirrors.
The Driver’s Convenience package adds 8-way adjustable front captain’s chairs rather than the 40/60/40 split front bench, Bluetooth, and the upgraded sound system. In the Crew Cab configuration, this package includes a sunroof, too.
The Max Utility package makes the Titan into the ultimate workhorse, with spray-in bedliner receiver hitch, 7-pin wiring harness, heavy-duty battery, and front tow hooks. The Pro-4X and LE versions of the package include heated tow mirrors in addition to all the other features.
