Nissan unveiled the second generation Titan in 2016, and now, three years later it was time for its mid-cycle facelift. The 2020 Titan truck was unveiled at the 2019 State Fair of Texas and offers a few exterior and interior updates, but most importantly a revised V-8 engine. For the 2020 model year the Titan will be offered in King Cab and Crew Cab body configurations and five well-equipped graded levels – S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.
For the exterior, the 2020 Titan didn’t received too many updates, but it is now offered with three unique grille designs, that will help the customers to differentiate between grade levels. The truck also gets new headlights that produce around 120 percent more light output in low beam offered as standard in the Titan PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve grades. All models will be offered with High Beam Assist, while PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve grade levels will also get new daytime running lights. For the rear of the truck, Nissan is offering new LED lights and tailgate finishers, with the TITAN PRO-4X featuring a black finisher, while Platinum Reserve utilizes a Satin Chrome finisher.
For 2020 model year Nissan is also offering three new exterior colors: Red Alert, Baja Storm, and Cardinal Red Metallic.
A few updates were also made on the interior, where Nissan is offering a new, nine-inch display with WXGA resolution – higher than HD. It serves as the gateway to the 2020 TITAN’s enhanced next-generation connectivity that includes standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.
For 2020 all grades will get specially selected seat and trim materials and finishers.
Under the hood there is a 5.6-liter Endurance® V-8 gasoline engine that delivers a total of 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission with a larger final gear ratio of 3.692:1– providing more torque at the wheels in a given gear and smoother and faster acceleration.
The 2020 Nissan Titan will go on sale in early 2020.
