Which should you buy, a 2018 or 2019? 2019. Cash rebates, discount financing or both have been available on the 2018 Titan, but the multimedia upgrades are substantial. No Titan has offered Apple CarPlay and Android Auto before now.
The current-generation Nissan Titan debuted as a 2017 model, a year after Nissan introduced a related (but heavier-duty) Titan XD. For 2019, all grades get a new 7.0-inch touchscreen interface for audio and connectivity functions, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A new Fender premium stereo comes standard on SL and Platinum Reserve crew cabs; it's optional on Pro-4X crew cabs and King Cabs. Nissan's Rear Door Alert system is new for the Titan. On four-door models (King Cabs and crew cabs), it activates a dash display and the horn if you don't reopen the rear door after the truck is shut off.
Like the Titan XD, the half-ton Titan gets a new grille for SV trims that mixes body-color and black accents. Two new metallic paint colors also join the roster: Midnight Pine and Moab Sunset.
Crew cabs have a 5.6-foot bed and four conventional doors; they come in five trim levels. King Cabs have rear-hinged rear doors and a 6.6-foot bed and come in three trim levels. Single cabs have two doors and an 8.0-foot bed; they come in just the two lowest trim levels.
The Titan employs a 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter gasoline V-8 engine with a seven-speed automatic transmission. Two-wheel drive or a part time four-wheel drive system are available. Though Titan sales have been on the rise, Nissan's full-size truck still occupies a very small part of the full-size pickup market, which Ford, GM and Ram continue to lead.
