2020 Nissan Titan Gets a New Face

 

The Nissan Titan was the newest pickup truck on the block when it first came out. From that point on, its most well-known contenders have evolved into even more superior choices. Now, Nissan is trying to draw attention back to its pickup truck by pressing the 2020 Titan with a fresh styling, a modified powertrain and cutting-edge features.

The main objective of an extensive redesign is to prevent models from becoming out-of-date, so Nissan is literally giving the Titan cosmetic surgery. Nissan claims there are three new grille designs and flashier headlights that are similar to the Nissan Titan Warrior idea. There are new LED lights in the cargo bed and updated LED taillights. Along with these highlights, the 2020 Titan gets new wheel designs and more paint colors. 

Although the Titan already had great horsepower and torque, Nissan still decide to modify its 5.6-liter V-8 to squeeze even more out of it. The long engine option now makes 400 horsepower, an increase of 10, and 413 lb-ft of torque, an increase of 19. Both horsepower and torque ratings are bets in class. The V-8 also now combines with a nine-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the seven-speed unit that was used before. Nissan claims that the additional power and new partnership should make the Titan accelerate quicker and enhance the throttle response.

 

The 2020 Titan has more standard tech than ever. Every model will have Nissan’s Safety Shield 360, which includes automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and rear automated braking. The Titan can also be armed with a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control and other advanced systems.

The official pricing hasn’t been announced by Nissan just yet, but it is expected to start around $39,000 when it goes on sale in the beginning of 2020.
