For quite some time now, Nissan was planning to revamp its full-size truck. It’s almost 2020, and given the nature of competition in the market, we can’t say anything for sure.
The Nissan 2020 Titan was debuted on Thursday at the Texas State Fair. It is completely, a 100% redesigned with an old engine and a very efficient driver assistance system. But as you may know, the full-size truck market is competitive, and maybe these changes aren’t enough, even if they are welcome at this point. They still won’t salvage the image of Titan in the ranks.
The Titan 2020 has more features than the previous, like for example the Nissan Safety Shield 360 system. The Safety Shield will have set standards on all trims, they will be automatic, there is an emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, high-beam assist and rear automatic braking. Your truck gets optional adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, a driver alertness system, and rear door alert.
Let’s talk about the Dash technology that also gets a boost. There is an 8-inch touchscreen, a 9-inch screen with Wi-Fi. These both will run the Nissan Connect infotainment tech. Also present is a 7-inch, customizable driver information display that lives in the gauge cluster. You have the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, that is still along for the ride, and so is the 12-speaker Fender audio system.
There are refreshed LED taillights and tailgate finishes in 2020, the tailgate has revealed a new lighting system that uses four LED light sources to illuminate the entire bed. As goes for the speed, the predecessors were at 50 to 70 miles per hour acceleration time, according to Nissan, this one will up the ante.
An “Off-Road Gauge” complements the Titan’s available four-wheel-drive system, there is a low-range transfer case, electronic-locking rear end, and hill-descent control system (the latter of which is limited to the Pro-4X trim) to make easy Nissan’s full-size pickup off the beaten path. The truck uses data from an accelerometer (as opposed to a gyroscope), the gauge displays the likes of the truck’s pitch and roll angles.
No details on the pricing have been provided by Nissan. We may expect the 2020 Titan to hit the dealerships early next year.
