First Look: 2012 Nissan Titan


The 2012 Nissan Titan continues to soldier on for another model year with only minor updates, including a new Sport Appearance Package.

The Sport Appearance Package (pictured above) bundles a variety of cosmetic and functional upgrades for middle-of-the-road Titan SV models. The option group includes 20-inch SL aluminum-alloy wheels (in dark Hyper Silver finish), darkened grille treatment, body-colored front and rear bumpers, black step rails, bolstered seats shared with the PRO-4X off-road model with silver contrasting stitching, a lockable bedside storage compartment, unique bodyside sport "Titan" vinyl graphic, white-faced gauges, fog lights, captain’s chairs and a center console. A Bluetooth hands-free phone system and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls are also included.

The Sport Appearance Package is priced at $2,490. Titan SV's starting MSRP is $29,410.

The 2012 Titan is available only in King Cab (extended cab) and crew-cab body styles with a choice of two-wheel or four-wheel-drive configurations, along with two wheelbases (138.9 inches and 159.5 inches) and three bed lengths. A 5.6-liter V-8 rated at 317 horsepower and 385 pounds-feet of torque is the only available engine. Brilliant Silver is a new exterior color choice for all 2012 Titan models.

The 2012 Titan is available nationwide today.
