The full-size truck has been updated recently for the 2020 model year, which clearly indicates that the Japanese manufacturer plans to keep the current generation for several more years. This also indicates that the 2021 Nissan Titan will remain pretty much the same.
We count on the same design, which will include all the updates that were recently presented. Additionally, we could see a couple more standard features. The truck should arrive in the last quarter of the next year.
- Great driving dynamics
- Smooth ride
- Long list of safety features
- Subpar towing ratings
- Fuel economy could be better
When it comes to the exterior, the best we could see are new color options. Other than that, the 2021 Nissan Titan will carry on with the same design, which has been updated recently. The focus of this update was on the front end, which comes with a new, more prominent grille, as well as with new headlights, which besides new shape also features beautiful LED lamps.
Unfortunately, these lamps are reserved for higher trim levels only. Also, there are new color options, new wheels, new LED lighting in the cargo bed, all inspired by the Titan Warrior concept. All in all, there is no reason to expect any particular novelty for the next year.
Once again, we don’t expect bigger changes, considering that the recent update has brought some pretty interesting novelties. The overall interior look seems pretty familiar. But you can easily notice a new touchscreen and infotainment system, which is something that became standard in the segment, after the arrival of the new Ram 1500.
Standard models come with an 8-inch screen, while a bigger 9.0-inch touchscreen is available in higher trims. Also, there is a whole bunch of new standard safety features. All models come with things like automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring.
Rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, and rear automated emergency braking. All in all, we could see a couple of additions to the list of standard equipment. Other than that, things should remain the same.
The engine department will definitely remain untouched. There is an updated powertrain, which included novelties not just in terms of engine, but also in terms of a new transmission.
A well-known 5.6-liter V8 now features 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Also, there is a new 9-speed automatic transmission, which comes as a replacement for a 7-speed gearbox.
2021 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price
We don’t expect surprises when it comes to the 2021 Nissan Titan release date. The new model should hit the market sometime late in the next year, with the base price around $39,000.
