The 2014 Nissan Titan has More than Enough Muscle to Get the Job Done

The 2014 Nissan Titan has more than enough muscle to get the job done. See why you'll love it for the long haul in Kelley Blue Book's review:

Keeping truck-buying simple.

The Nissan Titan isn't the sales leader in the full-size truck segment, but where the Titan does excel is in simplicity. You can choose extended (King) cab or Crew Cab, short or long bed and two- or four-wheel drive, but there is one engine, one transmission and one axle ratio, making this the easiest half-ton to order on the market. And changes are coming that may make the Titan a genuine contender against the likes of the F-150, Ram 1500 and Silverado.

Driving It

Some impressions from our full review: "The 2014 Nissan Titan's engine isn't the most powerful V8 in its class, but it's far from tepid, with good punch off the line and more than enough muscle to get the job done, whether that's passing slower traffic or hauling a heavy trailer (9,500 pounds is the max towing capacity) up a long grade."

A New Titan Is Coming

After more than 10 years on the market in essentially the same form as when it debuted, Nissan is finally introducing a new Titan, likely to be unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. While we don't know how different the new truck will look, Nissan has officially announced that the new Titan will be available with a V8 turbodiesel under the hood.

Build and Price

The Nissan Titan starts out at just above $30,000 for a two-wheel-drive King Cab. Choose the Crew Cab with four-wheel drive and all the bells and whistles, and that price climbs to nearly $48,000.

 

The Nissan Titan is available at all 7 Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego. Find yours today!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – With help from the passionate Nissan Trucks Facebook fan base, the crowd-sourced, custom-made Project Titan is complete. The ruggedly tailored 2014 Nissan Titan, piloted by two Wounded Warrior Project® Alumni, is now primed with all the necessary equipment to take on the rigorous Alaskan wilderness in an adventure beginning today. Fans can follow along atFacebook.com/nissantrucks.

Starting with a solid foundation – a rugged 2014 Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X®– fans voted on 10 different areas of customization to help the Titan conquer Alaska's challenging terrain – some of the most treacherous in the world. Fans voted at each stage along the way, giving Nissan direction for almost every inch of the truck.

Outside, a "Recon Titan" wrap with a digital-camouflage design pays homage to some of the most capable vehicles in the military. A NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust system open up airflow on both ends of the Titan's Endurance® 5.6-liter V-8 engine. the hazardous Alaskan landscape is handled by 18-inch Fuel Revolver D525 wheels wrapped in 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. Come nightfall, Bulldog LED Lighting illuminates the way, while an ARB Deluxe Bull Bar provides high-quality protection to help conquer the unknown.

Inside, a streamlined interior gives the truck a more customized feel, while a freshened shifter and steering wheel lead to a more comfortable drive. New, rugged Katzkin leather-wrapped seats feature Project Titan and Wounded Warrior Project embroidery. Coordinated tan stitching is found on the seats, steering wheel and door panels. Adding utility to the experience, Project Titan tows a matching customized all-terrain camping trailer featuring a camp-style kitchen, tent, water/fuel storage and a spare tire.

"The robust Titan serves as a great starting point for an adventure of this magnitude. With the help of Nissan's Facebook fan base, Project Titan is fully equipped for the Alaskan Frontier," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S. "I'm very much looking forward to following the Wounded Warrior Project team as they make their way through Alaska behind the wheel of Project Titan. This is the trip of a lifetime, and these veterans have all the essentials in this custom Nissan Titan to tackle many of the challenges the great wilderness will send their way throughout the journey."

With the truck fully prepared, the action begins when Iraqi war veterans and Wounded Warrior Project Alumni David Guzman and Kevin McMahon embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The two will trek over mountains and through valleys in the ultimate Titan, braving the muddy, rocky terrain and encountering an occasional wild animal. With the brisk onset of fall invading the Last Frontier, it's likely the WWP Alumni can expect some of the first snowflakes of the season.

As the two veterans set out across the Alaskan landscape, Nissan will document the adventure, with a YouTube series set to launch this fall. The adventure begins today when Guzman and McMahon shift into drive in the Alaskan Frontier.
