It takes a big stage to debut a big truck – which is why Nissan selected the State Fair of Texas to launch the new, redesigned 2020 Nissan Titan full-size pickup. The new Titan builds on the foundation of America’s Best Truck Warranty and exceptional quality as the J.D. Power top-ranked "Large Light Duty Truck" in the 2019 Initial Quality Study (IQS).
The changes to Titan for the 2020 model-year include a bold new front end design highlighted by an aggressive new grille and light configuration, a family-oriented interior redesign dominated by a high-resolution Integrated Command Center with 9-inch touchscreen with internal WiFi router, an extensive list of advanced available safety technology – including class-exclusive standard Rear Automatic Braking – and enhanced driving performance.
Every 2020 Titan is powered by a 5.6L Endurance V-8 gasoline engine rated at 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of torque. Both horsepower and standard torque ratings are the best in class, according to Nissan.
The engine is mated with a new 9-speed automatic transmission with a larger final gear ratio – providing smoother and faster acceleration. Titan is again available in a choice of 4x2 or 4x4 drive configurations.
The 2020 Titan will be offered in King Cab and Crew Cab body configurations and five grade levels – S, SV, PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve. The new Titan reinforces Nissan Intelligent Mobility, including standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology for all grade levels. It goes on sale in early 2020.
"The annual State Fair of Texas is deep in the heart of truck country – with more than 2 million fairgoers attending each year. What better arena for the world debut of this powerful new 2020 Titan ," said Tiago Castro, director, North American Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, Nissan North America, Inc.
The 2020 Titan redesign was led by a team at Nissan Design America (NDA) in La Jolla, Calif., the creators of both the original Titan and the current generation design. Following a theme of "Powerful Warrior," the designers emphasized the "solid beam" construction and commanding presence with a high-tech appearance to the large LED headlights and "double boomerang" LED daytime running lights. New all-LED lighting has been added to the pickup bed, while the rear exterior design includes new LED lights and tailgate finishers. Other new exterior items include the front bumper, interlocking frame grille and surround, fog lights, badging, new wheel designs and three dynamic new colors.
Titan Crew Cab model occupants are treated to a new available Dual Panel Panoramic Moonroof, one of the largest in the segment measuring over three-feet square.
The 2020 Titan is also a showcase for Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, starting with standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 – a suite of six advanced driver-assist systems. Safety Shield 360 includes Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, High Beam Assist and class-exclusive Rear Automatic Braking.
The new Titan also features a number of other class-exclusive technologies – Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, standard Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Intelligent Around View Monitor. Other systems include Intelligent Cruise Control, Intelligent Driver Alertness, Traffic Sign Recognition and Nissan’s innovative Rear Door Alert.
All 2020 Titan models are covered by Nissan’s "America’s Best Truck Warranty" – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of five-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first. The warranty includes basic and powertrain coverage.
