2016 Nissan Titan Review
The 2016 Nissan Titan will be offered as two different models, the regular Titan and the Titan XD. It is important to mention that the two look roughly the same, and the only difference is that the XD model will be able to tow more than 12,000 pounds. There will also be some convenience upgrades that will differentiate the two, but the towing capacity is the most important difference. There is no doubt that for the 2016 model year, the carmaker comes with the all-new appearance for the Titan. However, the front fascia of the car will be roughly the same as the front end of the current model with its corporate grille and side mirrors. Other than that, the vehicle has no other resemblance to its predecessor.
The vehicle sports sculpted front and rear fenders that make it look bolder than ever. The carmaker offers you a choice of three wheel sizes, including 17-inch, 18-inch, and 20-inch. No matter which size you choose, they will also be wrapped in LT-series tires. Thanks to the side running boards that extend past the cab, you can easily step up into the vehicle’s bed. The rear end gets stylized taillights and tailgate with a small spoiler. The newcomer measures 242.9 inches in length, 79.4 in width and 78.7 inches in height.
2016 Nissan Titan Interior
Things inside of the cabin of the newcomer look much more improved and luxurious compared to the outgoing model. The look of the cabin proves that the company spared no expense to make it flawless. You will be offered two-tone leather seats with cooling and heating functions. The center console is clear and offers enough space for 15-inch laptop along with cup holders for the front and rear occupants. The gauge cluster also looks great and upscale thanks to its black background and silver dials. The cabin also has an all-new off-road screen which shows vehicle’s pitch and roll angles. A 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system is also there to keep passengers amused.
