Nissan slightly updated its large pickup

New Nissan Titan 2020 will be shown next week at the Big Tex Fair in Dallas, Texas. Sales restyled pickup will start next year.

Nissan introduced its full-size Titan pickup truck in 2003 in the United States, the company showed the current second generation at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015. It is based on the F-Alpha platform, on which Navara / Frontier, Pathfinder (until 2012) and the sixth generation Patrol are also based. Note that Titanium sales in January-August 2019 fell by 37% to 19,987 copies. Perhaps the update will be able to fuel interest in this model.

Nissan has published a teaser for the Titan 2020 model year. As the company noted, the updated pick-up performed by the Pro-4X “appeared” in the video. The video shows a logo with lit “lava-red” letters, as well as a more aggressive V-motion radiator grille, a different lower part of the front bumper with updated fog lights and a new LED optics with C-shaped daytime running lights.

Previously, the car fell into the lens of “photospies.” Judging by the disguise, the profile of the truck will remain the same, but the stern will be reviewed. The pickup truck will presumably have other lights and a cargo platform door. The interior is expected to have a modified dashboard with other ventilation openings for climate control and an enlarged touch screen multimedia system (now its diagonal is 7 inches).

A pickup truck can be bought with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (in the Pro-4X version only 4WD). The engine of the updated Nissan Titan, most likely, will remain only gasoline – the V8 of the VK56VD series with a volume of 5.6 liters with a return of 395 hp and 534 Nm of torque. He is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Now the truck can also be bought with a five-liter 314-horsepower Cummins diesel engine (752 Nm), but such versions are likely to cease to be produced before the end of this year.

In addition, as we reported earlier, Titan during the restyling may lose the version with a single-row cab – such a car acted as an affordable “workhorse”. So buyers of the updated Titan will have to choose between versions with a two-row and one-and-a-half cabin.

Nissan will present the updated car in a week, September 26, at the Big Tex Fair in Dallas, Texas. Restyled Titans will go on sale in the USA next year. Note that in its segment, the model can not catch up with competitors. 2017 was the best year for the current generation – the brand managed to sell almost 53 thousand pickups in the States. Over the same year, the market leader – the “purebred American” Ford F-Series – sold over 896 thousand units, and a truck of another Japanese brand – Toyota Tundra – gained over 116 thousand owners.
