Review of the 2007 Nissan Titan

  • With a stout V8, roomy interior and loads of useful features, the 2007 Nissan Titan is an impressive full-size pickup that every truck buyer should consider. Just be aware that it offers fewer drivetrains, cab configurations and bed lengths than its competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    One of the best drivetrains in its class, smooth-riding suspension, spacious and functional cabin, innovative design features, available stability control and side airbags.

  • Cons

    Limited drivetrain and body style choices, no heavy-duty models, burly exhaust note can get annoying on long drives.

  • What's New for 2007

    The 5.6-liter V8 engine has been re-rated for 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque in the 2007 Nissan Titan, but actual performance is unchanged. A couple of new options packages have also been added.

Great truck, woudn't trade it

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan SE 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I brought this truck new with about 59 miles at the time, after comparing with other Make and Models in its class and I have to say it was a great choice. I’ve decided to hold off until I had put a good amount of miles on this vehicle before writing this review and as of now I have 78,000 miles on this vehicle and more to come. I’m 6’2 and my girlfriend about 5’11 for us tall people space is everything, and Nissan got it right interior design is extremely spacious lots of compartments both overhead and on the side doors to include the back seat great compliments.




Horrible fuel mileage

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan XE FFV 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I own a 2007 Nissan titan with close to 100,000 kms on it now. I bought it at 70,000 kms to replace a honda ridgeline that could not pull my 4,500 empty trailer. In the three years that I have owned the truck I must say it has been pretty good. It will start faithfully in anything warmer than -17 degrees and is quite reliable. Unfortunately, the steering is horrible and it feels like I am experiencing a death wobble when I drive it over bumps and cracks in the road. I have taken it in to Nissan a number of times only for them to say that there was either too much or too little tire pressure. They did not find problems until my son who is a mechanic brought the issues to their attention.

High maint cost with subpar

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan LE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

Annoyances: Goodyear SRA tires were toast after 15k miles. Air conditioner compressor stays on until the ignition is turned off. Over-all climate control not good. Brakes are under sized and rotors need replacing often. At 61 K miles drivers side axle seal started leaking. At 70 K miles Passenger side started leaking. Reported to NTSB per Titanclub Website. Called 800-Nissan and their customer service was terrible and wouldn't lift a finger to help me even though many, many other people have the same problem. Now my drivers side seal is leaking again at 120 K miles.




Tough but fragile

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan LE FFV 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

As much as I love my Titan, my comfort has been a bit shattered. The service advisers at the dealership are great but they have been unable to figure out the reason for my constant radiator failures. I am currently on number 3. The radiator is definitely of poor design, but as long as it remains under the extended warranty I'll continue to bring it in. This truck has great potential.




So far so good!!!

Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan SE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

I have about 39000 on my trunk now and it has been a good truck. The only problem i have had is the heater control switch will not move to thefull open position and the only way to six it is to take the hole dash off. So i just keep it at 80% and it is enough to keep me warm and the only other thing is the driver side door handle trim is coming off. I drive in the snow everyweekend on my way snowboarding, I still have a brand new set of of Tire chains i bought when i got the truck and they still have never been out of the boxes. Love the truck.

Truck of trucks

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Nissan Titan SE 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (5.6L 8cyl 5A)

This is the best truck I have ever owned. Never a problem. 41000 so far with nothing more than tires and oil. Passing 2 mini-vans and a rig on a two lane road all at the same time is not a concern. I haul 2-3 dirtbikes all the time, love the utility bed. I have also towed a couple of 6000+ lb travel trailers with dirtbikes and firewood at 75 mph. This truck hauls with plenty of power. A little wide for off-roading(if you like your paint), but it will go almost anywhere. I rated fuel mileage high because this is a truck with power, it takes fuel to make 6000 lbs go 80 mph. Driving the Titan is very comfortable. The captains chairs feel like a Lazyboy. I have had 3 other Nissan trucks and a Z.



Full 2007 Nissan Titan Review

What's New for 2007

The 5.6-liter V8 engine has been re-rated for 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque in the 2007 Nissan Titan, but actual performance is unchanged. A couple of new options packages have also been added.

Introduction

The U.S. -- home of shock-and-awe military maneuvers, cowboy boots and that ridiculously outsized Mall of America -- knows a thing or two about swagger. It's little wonder, then, that domestic manufacturers invented and cornered the full-size truck market. When Nissan announced plans a few years ago to throw its hat into this ring with a full-size pickup truck aptly named the Titan, the prognosis was uncertain. Would a Japanese manufacturer really be able to get to the heart of this quintessentially American market segment? The answer turned out to be a resounding yes. On sale since 2004, Nissan's Titan has proven itself a leader in the full-size pickup truck category.

The 2007 Nissan Titan is built for buyers seeking maximum bigness -- big power, a big features list, big size and big toughness. Only two body styles are offered: a half-ton extended cab (called King Cab) with reverse-opening rear access doors and a 6-foot-6-inch bed, and a half-ton crew cab with four full-size doors and a 5-foot-6-inch bed.

Powered by a muscular 317-horsepower 5.6-liter V8, the truck is never at a loss for juice, whether zipping in and out of freeway traffic or hauling a trailer and three passengers. It's happy in the dirt as well, as optional heavy-duty shocks and oversized tires keep it sure-footed, while a part-time transfer case with ultra-low gearing (available on four-wheel-drive versions) enables it to confidently navigate the steepest slopes.

Inside, the crew cab's cabin is roomy enough to comfortably seat six. Rear doors on extended-cab models open up a full 168 degrees for easier access. The Titan's rear seat is a standout, with class-leading legroom and a relaxed seatback angle that makes second-row travel a pleasure. There are ample bins and pockets for storage, and the rear seat flips up to create an almost flat load floor, facilitating transportation of bulkier items. The Titan's generous list of available features includes electronic stability control and power-adjustable pedals, while goodies like cruise control and one-touch up and down front windows for both driver and passenger are standard. Spray-in bedliner, adjustable tie-down points and a lighted tailgate are also available.

For all its strengths, the Nissan Titan faces some tough competition this year in the form of newly redesigned versions of the Toyota Tundra and Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra twins. Although we consider the Titan a class-leading full-size truck, these all-new trucks offer equivalent capacity and features, along with more drivetrain and body style choices. We'd recommend evaluating all of these trucks before making a decision.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

A full-size pickup truck, the 2007 Nissan Titan comes in two body styles: an extended cab (King Cab) with a 6-foot, 5-inch bed and a crew cab with a 5-foot, 5-inch bed. Both are available in two- and four-wheel-drive configurations and in three trim levels: XE, SE and LE. Base XE models come well-equipped with 17-inch wheels, a 40/20/40-split front bench seat, air-conditioning, a CD stereo, cruise control and power door locks and windows. The midgrade Titan SE adds 18-inch wheels, chrome exterior trim, front captain's chairs, an in-dash CD changer, power mirrors and an overhead console. Top-of-the-line Titan LE models add power-adjustable leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded Rockford Fosgate audio system, power-adjustable pedals, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and heated and auto-dimming side mirrors.

Notable options include a navigation system, satellite radio (XM or Sirius), a DVD rear entertainment system, a sunroof and a factory-applied spray-in bedliner. There's also an off-road package that includes Rancho shocks, heavy-duty skid plates, a lower final-drive gear ratio, BFGoodrich all-terrain tires and a push-button rear locking differential. A tow package adds a heavy-duty battery, an additional seven-pin wiring harness plug and extending tow mirrors.

Powertrains and Performance

The 2007 Nissan Titan offers only one drivetrain combination: a 5.6-liter V8 hooked up to a five-speed automatic transmission. The V8 is rated at 317 hp and 385 lb-ft of torque. With the optional tow package, the Titan extended cab is rated to pull up to 9,500 pounds. (The crew cab maxes out at 9,400.) The standard five-speed automatic transmission features a tow-haul mode for handling heavy loads. Four-wheel-drive models get a part-time transfer case.

Safety

Standard safety features on the Nissan Titan include a tire-pressure monitoring system and four-wheel antilock disc brakes. Front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags are optional on all Titan models, while stability control can be added to SE and LE trim levels. In NHTSA crash testing, the Titan received a perfect five stars for driver protection in frontal impacts and four stars for passenger protection. The Titan earned a "Good" rating (the highest possible) in IIHS frontal-offset crash testing.

Interior Design and Special Features

The 2007 Nissan Titan features a spacious and functional interior design with easy-to-use controls and numerous storage bins. Materials quality is only average, but build quality is generally very good. SE and LE trim levels offer captain's chairs with a floor-mounted transmission shifter and a flow-through center console. (A bench seat with a column shifter is standard on base models and a no-cost option on the SE and LE.) The rear seats fold up to provide a large load floor for hauling items inside the cab, and the rear doors on extended-cab models open 168 degrees for easier access. Crew cab models feature a standard power up-down rear window with a defroster.

Driving Impressions

A tightly controlled ride, well-weighted steering and a gutsy engine make the Nissan Titan pickup truck feel smaller than it really is. The five-speed transmission keeps the engine in the heart of its power band for strong acceleration that rivals any of its competitors. Strong brakes and solid road feel further contribute to the Titan's ability to handle everything from heavy loads to daily errand-running.
