Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview With the launch of the Titan, Nissan joined the full-size pickup truck ranks. Seriously big in size, the Titan competes against domestically built trucks from Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford and GMC, which have virtually owned the full-size segment for decades.
For 2007, Nissan improved airflow to the Titan's 5.6-liter V-8, resulting in 317 horsepower and 385 pounds-feet of torque, up from last year's 305 hp and 379 pounds-feet. It's also quipped to run on regular or ethanol-based E85 fuel. A new Chrome Package includes unique exterior appointments.
The truck is available in King Cab (extended-cab) and Crew Cab forms and can be equipped with either rear- or four-wheel drive; no V-6 engine or single cab is available. Trim levels include the base XE, SE and top-of-the-line LE.
Exterior Wide front fenders and blistered cargo-box sides help convey the sensation of immensity. At 224.2 inches long overall with a 6.5-foot cargo bed, the Titan King Cab is 5.6 inches shorter than an equivalent extended-cab Ford F-150.
The King Cab's rear doors open nearly 180 degrees for easy access. A factory-applied spray-in bedliner is offered on upper-end trim levels. Nissan's available Utili-track bed channel system uses C-channel rails on the cargo-box floor, side rails and front panel. A lockable bedside compartment, tailgate illumination and a bed-mounted 12-volt power outlet are included.
Titan XEs have 17-inch tires, but aluminum wheels on other models hold 18-inch tires. Chrome 18-inchers are available with the Chrome Package, which also includes fog lights, a spray-in bedliner, and chrome step rails and side mirrors. An optional offroad package includes a lower-ratio rear axle, a driver-selectable locking rear differential, Rancho shock absorbers and skid plates.
Interior Buyers can choose from two King Cab interior layouts. A front bench seat provides three-across seating, and a column-mounted gearshift is used. Titans with bucket seats get a large console and a gated gearshift.
In King Cab form, the base Titan XE comes with air conditioning and a CD stereo. Move to the other end, and a loaded Titan LE Crew Cab comes with power front bucket seats, leather upholstery, a 350-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system and dual-zone automatic climate control. A moonroof is optional on Crew Cab models.
Under the Hood The Titan's 5.6-liter V-8 produces 317 hp and 385 pounds-feet of torque; it teams with a five-speed automatic transmission. The Titan can tow as much as 9,500 pounds when properly equipped. Optional part-time shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive uses an electronically controlled dual-range transfer case.
Safety Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes are standard. Front-seat side-impact and side curtain airbags are optional.
