When it shows
up next week at the Chicago Auto Show, the 2008 Nissan Titan will be sporting
new exterior and interior refinements, a longer wheelbase, and new 4x4
On the outside,
the prominent chrome grille and chin remain but the lines have been firmly
chiseled and paired with new beveled wheel wells. The headlights and foglights
have also been updated.
A new long
wheelbase option increases buyer choices by lengthening the King Cab Titan's
bed from 6.1-feet to 8-feet and ups the Crew Cab's from 5.6-feet to 7-feet.
Along with the longer boxes, the gas tank has also been expanded to 37-gallons
from 27-gallons on the standard wheelbase models.
Titan gets new front seats and a heated rear leather bench. The instrument
panel and dash can be optionally skinned with wood accents, and stronger
gauges and a larger navigation screen provide a little bit of that Infiniti
feel. Bluetooth is an option for hands-free calling with Bluetooth capable
for 2008 is the PRO-4X off-road package to beef up the Titan's capabilities
off the pavement. Dirt cred comes from Rancho shocks, an armored transfer
case and oil pan, an e-locker rear differential, and upgraded wheels wearing
275/70R-18 tires. Special exterior cues include PRO-4X stickers and a
body colored grilled.
Titan hits dealer lots in May.
