Overview

The 2007 Titan receives only minor enhancements from the 2006 model. It can now be optioned as a Fuel Vehicle (FFV), equipped with a common fuel tank designed to run on varying blends of gasoline with ethanol or other fuel.

Other 2007 Titan enhancements include an increase to 317 horsepower (from 305 horsepower) and to 385 lb-ft torque (from 379 lb-ft). Titan LE and SE models add Chrome Packages that share 18” chrome wheels and chrome step rails, SE offers a utility bed option with the Chrome Package, and LE models add an available “Texas Titan” Package.

Titan King Cab and Crew Cab are offered in three models – XE, SE and LE each with a choice of 2WD and 4WD – and with a long list of standard equipment including a powerful 5.6-liter V8, 5-speed automatic transmission with Tow/Haul mode, power rack-and-pinion steering and 17-inch wheels and tires.

Titan XE models are equipped with a standard split front bench seat (40/20/40 split) with a center seat fold-down armrest storage bin and split fold-up rear seat (60/40 split) with three-point seat belts for all positions and available spray-on bedliner. XE and SE 2WD models are available with a Traction Package (standard on LE) that includes 2-wheel limited slip (ABLS) and front tow hooks.

Titan SE models include standard 5-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels and P265/70R18 tires and chrome steel center bumper, while LE models add 6-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, standard high-utility bed, leather-appointed seating, Rockford Fosgate?-powered audio system with eight speakers, an auto-climate control system and power folding mirrors with heat, power adjust, auto dim, and integrated turn signal.

Optional equipment packages include the XE Preferred Package with upgraded audio system, sliding rear tinted window and overhead console. The Crew Cab XE Preferred Package also adds remote keyless entry, vehicle security system and an Immobilizer system.

Optional SE equipment packages include a SE Popular Package (equipped with split bench seat or bucket seats) including upgraded audio system with steering wheel audio controls, rearview mirror, temperature and UGDO, proximity sensors and adjustable pedals; Chrome Package with 18” chrome wheels, chrome step rails, chrome mirror caps, spray-in bedliner, and special I/P graphics; and Popular Rockford Fosgate Package, which includes Popular Package contents plus premium sound Rockford Fosgate-powered audio system. The Crew Cab SE model offers an available sunroof. The well-equipped LE model offers an available Navigation Package with DVD-based navigation system.

LE models also add a Chrome Package with 18'' chrome wheels and chrome step rails, and new for 2007 is the LE "Texas Titan."

All three models offer an Off-Road Package (4x4 models only), which includes Rancho? performance gas shocks, lower final gear ratio (3.357), P285/70R17 BFGoodrich Rugged Trail tires, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (7-spoke), skid plates (oil pan, fuel tank and transfer case), fog lamps and tow hooks. Both the SE and LE models offer a Utility Bed Package with C-channel tie down system, bed side storage, rear bed lighting and power point and spray-on bedliner; and for 2007, the Titan’s Tow Package is offered on XE, which includes receiver hitch, lower final gear ratio, additional 7-pin wiring harness plug, trailer brake prewiring, transmission temperature gauge, extending mirrors and heavy-duty battery.

Full Size Power
For 2007, Titan’s all-aluminum 5.6-liter V8 engine receives an increase to both the bell mouth radius on the air cleaner and the port diameter of the intake manifold, helping produce increased 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque ratings. Titan features a maximum towing capacity of 9,500 pounds for King Cab and 9,400 pounds for Crew Cab (when properly equipped) – as much as some 3/4-ton pickups. Titan utilizes a rugged, fully boxed high-strength all-steel F-Alpha platform for enhanced crash performance and long-term durability.

The standard 5-speed automatic transmission was designed especially for heavy-duty truck use, with emphasis on serious towing. Each component was created for full-size truck application, and a wide gear ratio was used to create a high performance control system producing top-class acceleration, power and shift quality.

For 4WD models, Titan adapts an advanced shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive system with 2WD/4HI/4LO modes with electronic control part-time transfer case.

An Off-Road package is available with unique lower ratio gearing, switch-on-demand electronically activated locking rear differential, off-road-style Rancho? performance gas shock absorbers, unique 17-inch alloy wheels with large all-terrain tires, fog lights and lower radiator, oil pan and transfer case skid plates.

The Titan comes standard with 17-inch painted steel wheels and 245/75R17 tires or available 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (five or six spoke) and 265/70R18 tires. Also available are 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and 285/70R17 tires as part of the Off-Road package.

Inside
Titan’s interior is extremely spacious with 126 cubic feet available in the Titan Crew Cab. The Titan Crew Cab also offers excellent front and rear seat leg room of 41.8 inches and 40.4 inches respectively.

Two interior configurations are available – a standard bench seat with column shifter, which seats six passengers or an optional Captain’s Chair Package with two front bucket seats, which seats five passengers and offers a large center console and gated floor shifter.

Among the Titan’s many interior features are standard flip-up 60/40 rear seat cushions for added cargo space and flexibility, with grocery hooks on the bottom of the seat cushions. The rear floor was designed to fold nearly flat for maximum cargo utility. The Crew Cab’s rear seat is large and relaxing, with a full 24 degrees of seat back angle.

Titan’s rear compartment offers ample rear storage, including door storage bins and rear door bottle holders in the armrests and available power front windows with one-touch auto up/down function (not available on King Cab XE models).

An available overhead console system gives passengers more storage options. The console houses rear audio controls and also contains dampened storage bins for both front and rear passengers for items like sunglasses, CDs, cell phone, PDA or a small tissue box. Crew Cab models offer an optional rear-seat DVD Mobile Theatre System with fold-down 7-inch monitor.

Titan Crew Cab models offer an available power down/up rear window.

Titan features a fold-flat front passenger seat that allows extra versatility and can also be used as a working area. Additionally, available power-adjustable front seats with a driver’s seat memory system and heated seats provide added convenience, while standard front-seat active head restraints add one more extra element of safety. Titan also offers available power-adjustable foot pedals with memory.
