Changes Announced for 2010 Nissan Titan and Frontier Pickup Trucks


Nissan has announced minor updates for its Frontier and Titan pickup trucks for 2010.

2010 Nissan Frontier
The midsize Nissan Frontier received several styling updates , including a new grille and wheels, and a name change for its off-road package, from "Nismo" to "PRO-4X." The sole exterior change for 2010 is the debut of a new paint color, called Night Armor.

Standard safety and security equipment is added to the 2010 Frontier, including side curtain airbags on all models and stability control for V-6 models.

Other changes include the increased availability of the Frontier's five-speed automatic transmission for XE models, standard Active Brake Limited Slip (the truck's ABS system is used as a virtual limited-slip differential)  for all SE and LE V-6 models, and standard hill start assist and hill descent control for all SE and LE models with four-wheel drive and an automatic transmission.

2010 Nissan Titan
There are no exterior styling changes for the Titan except for the addition of two new paint colors: Blue Steel and Navy Blue.

Nissan is hoping the slow-selling Titan half-ton benefits from the introduction of a new Value Truck Package for its midlevel SE trim. The SE Value Truck Package includes cloth captain’s chairs, a tow hitch, a Bluetooth hands-free phone system, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, fog lights and more, at a savings over purchasing those items separately, though pricing hasn't been announced yet.

The PRO-4X off-road Titan receives a new chrome badge for its tailgate, plus a standard receiver hitch, seven-pin wiring harness and trailer brake pre-wiring for towing as part of the SE Value Truck Package.

For work truck users, vinyl floors have been added to the entry-level King Cab XE model.

Similar to the Frontier, the Titan also receives standard side curtain airbags, and stability control is now standard for every Titan, as well asActive Brake Limited Slip to control wheel slip using the truck's ABS system instead of a mechanical limited-slip differential.
