The 2020 Nissan Titan: All New Technology, All New Power

Research shows that more than three million Americans bought a new pickup truck in 2019,
are you preparing to join their ranks this year? If so, there are plenty of options on the market, including the new and improved 2020 Nissan Titan. Today, we're breaking down a few of the reasons why this half-ton pickup is Nissan's most competitive and well-equipped model to date.

Basics to Know
Forget sorting through a variety of configurations. In a refreshing move, Nissan pared down the 2020 Titan to just two designs: an extended cab (aka "king cab") and a full crew cab. The former features rear-opening half doors and a 6.5-foot cargo bed, while the latter features a 5.5-foot box. Trim levels range from the basic S trim to the ultra-luxe Platinum Reserve, with the SV, Pro-4X and SL in between. All levels except the Pro-4X feature both rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive setups. The Pro-4X is four-wheel-drive only.

Under the Hood
The Titan's 5.6-liter V-8 powertrain was already a powerhouse. The 2020 model keeps it in place but improves upon it, bolstering it to 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. For a base engine in a full-size pickup, these figures are impressive. however, you can't improve your engine without upgrading your transmission. The 2020 Titan is supported by a Jatco nine-speed automatic transmission, which replaced the seven-speed unit from the previous model. Together, these upgrades help boost the truck's payload and towing capacities to 1680 and 9370 pounds, respectively, marking a slight uptick from other models.

Improved Mechanical Handling
Technical specifications aside, how does this new Nissan ride? The short answer is as smooth as butter. Gear changes are a breeze, even when the tow/haul setting is utilized, and the truck's expertly-tuned calibration makes for excellent throttle response and easy speed management during descending grades. While there were a few other minor tuning adjustments, the Titan 2020 features much of the same mechanicals as the one before. There's a reason Nissan chose the Texas State Fair to debut this new model: because it's a beast, both on and off the road.

Impressive Infotainment
With its 2020 redesign, the Nissan Titan is now fully in line with the infotainment standards set by its competitors. From the driver's seat, the new instrument cluster is easy to access and a cinch to operate, thanks to an upgraded 7.0-inch programmable driver information display that trumps the tiny, low-resolution display on earlier models. Another welcome improvement here? The new digital speedometer. The default setup comes equipped with an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, with the option to upgrade to a 9.0-inch WXGA resolution touchscreen Integrated Command Center system.
The NissanConnect Suite
This newly revisited infotainment center fits in nicely with the NissanConnect Suite, which includes a slew of connectivity features, including:
• High-definition traffic navigation
• Over-the-air software updates
• Google Places/Google Search functionality
• Apple CarPlay
• Android Auto 

In addition, the 2020 Titan includes an onboard WiFi router, with connectivity for up to six devices at speeds of up to 45 Mbps. Need more? You'll also find a smartphone charging system/holder within reach. Of course, all these gadgets and garnishes are ideal, but they require a premium audio system to reach their full potential. Drivers who already love Nissan's 12-speaker Fender setup can rejoice. The same system is available here (replacing the former Rockford Fosgate upgrade), along with a nine-channel, 485-watt amplifier.
Sleek, Comfortable Interior
The 2020 Titan keeps the Zero Gravity seats that have quickly become the manufacturer's trademark. You'll find them in both the front and rear of the truck, with trim-specific materials and finishings per the refresh. Other interior upgrades include extra assist grips to make ingress and egress more manageable, as well as improved storage capacity in all doors (front and rear). If you opt for a crew cab model, you'll also have the option of including an enormous, dual-panel panoramic sunroof. The first of its kind offered on a Titan, it's an impressive upgrade that's worth the upcharge.

Robust Safety Features
For years, class rivals including the Ford F-150 have dominated the space in terms of safety technology. With the 2020 Titan, Nissan joins their ranks. It now meets or exceeds leading class standards, with most of the functionality tied to its Nissan Safety Shield 360. Featured on every Titan model, this suite of tools includes six systems designed to assist drivers and keep them safe on the road, including:
• Automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection
• Rear cross-traffic alerts
• Blind-spot monitors
• High-beam assist
• Lane departure warnings
• Rear automatic braking
The rear automatic brakes are an especially helpful feature and the first of their kind in the full-size truck sector. You can also choose from myriad optional safety features, including:
• Driver attention monitor
• Adaptive cruise control
• Surround-view camera
• Traffic sign recognition
• Rear door alert

All safety features work in conjunction with the eight airbags that now come standard on every Titan, an increase from the six built into the previous model. There are also four seatbelt pretensioners now rather than two. Looking for additional peace of mind on the road? The all new Titan models come equipped with Nissan's five-year, 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage, an extensive offering for its class.
