Model News

An off-road focused, aggressively styled Nissan Titan PRO-4X model is new for 2008 and brings a body-colored grille and bumpers, alloy off-road wheels, and a number of cosmetic differences, plus Rancho shocks, a lower final-drive ratio, extra skid plates, and an electronic locking rear differential.

Otherwise, the Titan carries over with only a few small changes for 2008. A Bluetooth hands-free system is now included in the top LE model, XM satellite radio is available, a heated leather bench seat is also newly available, and the DVD entertainment system now has a larger eight-inch screen.

A new beige interior color is available, and two new exterior colors--Desert Stone and Timberline--join the palette.


Pros

Standard V8; towing and hauling ability; innovative storage features; available comfort and convenience features.


Model Highlights

The full-size 2008 Nissan Titan only has a single powertrain, but like other trucks it comes in a vast array of models and configurations. Now available in basic XE, mid-level SE, off-road focused PRO-4X, and luxurious LE trims, and in two cab styles, King Cab and Crew Cab, along with four bed lengths, the Titan can serve a wide range of needs.

The 5.6L V8 engine, making 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque, is standard across the line. The engine has an aluminum block with cast-iron liners, molybdenum-coated pistons, a forged steel crankshaft, and a heavy-duty cooling system for durability; it's a Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) and can run on blends of ethanol and gasoline up to 85 percent ethanol (E85). The V8 is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that was designed for regular tow duty. All Titan models are offered with either rear- or four-wheel drive; the 4WD system uses an electronically controlled part-time transfer case and has a low range.

King Cab models have Wide-Open rear doors that open nearly 180 degrees for improved access to the backseat area, along with flip-up rear seat cushions for expanding cargo space, while crew cab models have four full-size doors, with rear door storage bins and a steeper, more comfortable backrest angle. Two different interior configurations are offered. There's a standard bench seat with column shifter and seating for six, or an optional Captain's Chair Package brings two front bucket seats and a large center console and floor shifts, with seating for five. The center console that's included comes with a divider system to suit a number of different storage needs and has space for hanging file folders or a laptop.

Titan's box was designed to carry 4x8 plywood sheets easily between the wheel housings. The available Utili-track system brings movable utility cleats, each capable of securing 200 pounds, that can be moved within bed channels to help secure small but heavy items, such as engines. Modular storage units and accessories are available for bikes, kayaks, and other common items.

There's also a useful bedside storage compartment behind the rear driver's side wheel, designed to hold gloves, chains, flares, a first-aid kit, or even a small tool box.

Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution are standard on the Titan, along with front active head restraints, but front seat-mounted side air bags and roof-mounted supplemental side-curtain bags for outboard occupants are optional.

Base XE models come with a bit more than other base pickups; they include air conditioning, cruise control, and a six-speaker CD sound system. SE models add alloy wheels, power heated mirrors, front captain's chairs, keyless entry, power windows and locks, an overhead console, and a six-disc changer.

The PRO-4X is only available with 4WD and brings an off-road look, with unique gauges, embroidered seats with red stitching, and a leather-trimmed, red-stitched shift knob and steering wheel. To match the look, there's a host of off-road oriented equipment, including Rancho shock absorbers, an electronic locking rear differential, and unique 18-inch off-road alloy wheels with all-terrain tires.

At the top of the range is the luxurious LE model, which adds a brake limited-slip differential, 20-inch alloy wheels, the Utili-trak system, power leather captain's chairs, leather trim, an eight-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system with XM satellite radio, Bluetooth hands-free system, and dual-zone automatic climate control, among other extras. Noteworthy options include an in-dash navigation system and a towing package.


Value Writeup

While most competing full-size pickups offer a wide range of powertrains, the 2008 Nissan Titan comes only with a large, 5.6L V8. As such, for people who want or need V8 power but with a limited budget, the more affordable XE and SE models are especially attractive for their value.

Otherwise, the Titan is impressive for its tow ratings up to 9,500 pounds, which Nissan says is comparable to heavy-duty 3/4-ton trucks. The Utili-trak, factory spray-on bedliner, and rear bed storage compartment are also standout features, along with the available Electronic Locking Rear Differential. Long-wheelbase models feature a 37-gallon fuel tank, said to be the largest in its class.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2009 TITAN, ARMADA, AND INFINITI QX56 VEHICLES. THE INSTRUMENT PANEL FUEL GAUGE MAY INACCURATELY DISPLAY THAT THE VEHICLE STILL HAS SOME FUEL, TYPICALLY ABOUT ONE QUARTER TANK, WHEN THE FUEL TANK IS EMPTY.

Consequence
THIS COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO RUN OUT OF GAS AND STALL ON THE HIGHWAY, WHICH COULD CAUSE A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUEL SENDER UNIT INSIDE THE FUEL TANK WITH A NEW IMPROVED SENDER CARD. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 22, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2010 TITAN, ARMADA, AND INFINITI QX56, AND MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 NISSAN QUEST VEHICLES. THE BRAKE PEDAL PIVOT PIN END WAS NOT SPIN-FORMED TO SPECIFICATION DURING THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF THE BRAKE PEDAL ASSEMBLY. THE PIVOT PIN COULD SLIDE AND CAUSE THE BRAKE PEDAL TO PARTIALLY DISENGAGE FROM THE BRAKE PEDAL BRACKET.

Consequence
THE DRIVER WILL EXPERIENCE UNUSUAL AND NOTICEABLE LOOSENESS IN THE PEDAL AND A REDUCTION IN BRAKING FORCE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT TO SEE IF THE PIVOT PIN HAD BEEN FORMED PROPERLY AND WILL REPLACE THE BRAKE PEDAL ASSEMBLY IF NECESSARY FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 22, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

THE LOWER CONTROL LINK ASSEMBLY HAS TWO CYLINDRICAL COLLARS FORMING THE INBOARD ATTACHMENT POINTS TO THE CHASSIS.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
