Full-size pickup trucks are about as all-American as baseball and apple pie. And traditionally, consumers interested in purchasing a full-size pickup were limited to the offerings from the domestic Big Three automakers. But in the past few years additional choices have become available. One of these is the Nissan Titan.
The Titan, introduced for 2004, was the first Japanese pickup to truly possess the attributes that buyers typically expect from a full-size truck. Manufactured at Nissan's Canton, Mississippi, plant, it boasts dimensions and capabilities that are very similar to those of domestic full-size pickups. Though it hasn't sold as well as its rivals and is now growing quite long in the tooth, a new or used Nissan Titan can still meet the basic needs of many truck shoppers.
Used Nissan Titan Models
The Titan debuted for 2004, and these earlier trucks could be a good choice for a shopper searching for a used late-model pickup. The first couple of production years, in particular, outclassed domestic pickups in many ways. The most notable changes for the Nissan Titan came for the 2008 model year and included the addition of a long-wheelbase model, exterior and interior styling refreshes and new features. Models built for 2007 and earlier were available in one wheelbase length only, lacked the two different bed lengths for each body style and also had a reduced maximum payload. It should be noted that stability control, side airbags and side curtain airbags were not standard on all Titans until 2010. Used shoppers should note whether the truck in question is equipped with them.
