2020 nissan titan
Four years into its second-generation redesign that debuted in 2016, the Nissan Titan received a mid-cycle refresh for the 2020 model year. To better position itself with other full-size competitors in the segment like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500, the 2020 Titan boasts a host of new technological features and an updated powertrain with more horsepower.

The Titan’s familiar 5.6L dual-overhead cam V8 has been altered to produce 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque—a substantial increase from the 2019 model’s 390 hp and 394 lb-ft. A new smooth-shifting and more efficient nine-speed automatic transmission is also new for 2020, replacing the outgoing seven-speed unit.

More Power, More Capability

The 2020 Titan Crew Cab’s maximum payload and towing capacity has also been increased to 1630 and 9350 pounds, up from 1620 and 9240 pound ratings the previous year. For buyers seeking even more capability from the Titan, Nissan also offers the XD model with larger 14-inch disc brakes and a fully boxed, full-length ladder frame that’s been reinforced with commercial grade components.

The 2019 Titan XD’s available 5.0L Cummins turbo diesel rated at 310 horsepower 550 lb-ft of torque has been discontinued for the 2020 model year, leaving the 5.6L V8 as the sole powertrain option for the 2020 model year.

The Titan XD is the clear choice for drivers who frequently tow heavy equipment and push their truck to its mechanical limits, boasting a 2240 and 10,800-pound maximum payload and towing capacity. The XD also features available gooseneck towing with a hitch integrated into the frame and in-bed wiring harness. When hauling with the gooseneck hitch, maximum towing capacity is increased even further to 11,040 pounds. Additionally, the Titan’s standard integrated trailer-brake controller and rearview camera with trailer guidelines certainly are sure to give drivers an added sense of confidence when towing heavy loads.

Interior, Technology and Safety Advancements

While the Titan’s capability has certainly increased, its technology and amenities have also been updated. A new dual-pane sunroof introduces more light into the cabin, while acoustic laminated glass has been added to reduce cabin noise and better experience the crystal clarity and booming bass of the Titan’s new 12-speaker Fender audio system.

Inside, the refreshed Titan also features front and rear Zero Gravity seats, a new seven-inch gauge cluster display and a larger eight-inch standard infotainment screen that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. An optional nine-inch screen is available on the Platinum trim.

The 2020 Titan will also be safer than ever before with standard Nissan Safety Shield 360. The driver assistance and safety technology suite includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot warning, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert and high beam assist.

2020 Nissan Titan Trim Levels and Pricing

The 2020 Nissan Titan is available in both King and Crew Cab layouts across five trim levels—S, SV, Pro-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve. All trims are available in both rear and four-wheel drive configurations—except the Pro-4X, which is 4x4 standard.

The more capable Titan XD also is offered in the same five trim levels, but in Crew Cab and 4x4 configurations only.

The 2020 Nissan Titan S starts at $36,190 in RWD King Cab base trim. Other popular trim levels like the off-road savvy Pro-4X Crew Cab start at $49,790 and the heavy-duty XD starts at $44,580.
