The Nissan Titan was introduced to the US back in 2003. It has seen production every year since then, with two generations of Titan models. Both generations are famous for their powerful standard V8 engines. Today, we’ll take a look at each generation to help you decide which is the right Titan model for you.
The first generation of Titan was very long running. Every 1st-gen Titan was powered by a 5.6L V8. It produced 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque. The engine was paired to a five-speed automatic transmission. All models were available as either RWD or 4x4. Notably, the first generation of Titan models were only available in extended cab (called King Cab) and crew cab configurations, with no regular cab/two-seater option. The King Cab had a 6’7” bed. The crew cab had a 5’7” bed. After 2008, those longer beds were offered. The King Cab got an 8’3” option and the crew cab got a 7’3” option.
The Titan got a complete redesign for the 2016 model year. One of the big additions was the Titan XD (discontinued as of 2020), a Titan model with a heavy-duty frame and an extra engine option. Speaking of which, every 2nd-gen Titan comes standard with a 5.6L V8 that pumps out 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. A 5.0L Cummins turbodiesel V8 is available on the Titan XD. It produces 310 horsepower and a huge 555 lb-ft of torque. In 2019, the Titan got an upgraded infotainment system, with standard GPS navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, and SiriusXM radio, all controlled via a 7-inch touchscreen.
