Prior to the release of the Nissan Titan in 2004, most buyers thought of the compact and thrifty Nissan D21 Hardbody pickup when the words "Nissan" and "truck" were used in the same sentence. The Titan changed that stereotype forever and now Nissan is right in the middle of the full-size pickup war.
The 2013 model year for the Nissan Titan brought about a slew of minor changes, but nothing too drastic. The changes include things like a new four-spoke steering wheel, restyled S trim level wheels, new tailgate design, new exterior graphics and dark appearance for the Pro-4X trim, seven new exterior colors, and other minor aesthetic and standard feature changes.
The Pro-4X continues building on what the SV trim level did by adding in more features and a few special features exclusive only to the Pro-4X package. The main focus of the Pro-4X trim is off-road capability. On the exterior, the Pro-4X package adds in: 710 CCA heavy-duty battery, shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive, 3.36-to-1 final drive ratio, electronic locking rear differential, Ranchero off-road shocks, 18-by-8-inch dark aluminum wheels with 275/70R18 BFGoodrich Rugged Trail tires, four skid plates, fog lights, automatic headlights, tow hooks, class-IV tow hitch with seven-pin wiring harness and trailer-brake controller, body-color bumpers, rear sonar parking system, satin-finished chrome grille, splash guards, and bed-mounted storage containers. Inside the cabin, the Pro-4X includes rearview monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass, four 12-volt power outlets, eight-way power driver seat, two-tone cloth seating with Titan logo, leather-wrapped steering wheel and floor-mounted shifter, and six-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM audio system with color LCD screen.
The S trim level in the 2013 Nissan Titan lineup is the base model and only features items that a buyer would expect in a base-model pickup. On the outside, the Titan S includes: five-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist, 18-by-8-inch painted steel wheels with all-season 265/70R18 tires, body-color front bumper, silver rear bumper, black grille, door handles and side-view mirrors, intermittent wipers, bed light, tailgate spoiler, and bed tie-downs. Inside the cabin, the Titan S’ simplicity continues, as it includes: air conditioning, tilt steering, two 12-volt outlets, clock, retained accessory power, battery saver, vinyl flooring, 40/20/40 front bench seat and 60/40 rear bench seat, basic cloth seating, and six-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system.
The SL trim level acts as the top trim for the 2013 Titan and adds luxury features to the SV trim level, that make it a great choice for discerning truck buyers. On the outside, the SL carries the SV trim level’s standard features, but adds in: 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels with P275/60R20 Goodyear Wrangler rubber, fog lights, chrome door handles, step rails and side-view mirrors, power-folding, auto-dimming heated side-view mirrors, class-IV tow hitch with seven-pin wiring harness and trailer-brake controller, rear sonar parking assist, spray-on bed liner, Utili-track tie-down system, bed-mounted 12-volt power. Inside the SL’s cabin, it adds in: NissanConnect, Navigation with NavTraffic, NavWeather and POIs from Google, 5.8-inch color touchscreen, rearview monitor, Bluetooth with hands-free texting, two-zone auto climate control, HomeLink universal home remote, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, power adjustable pedals, eight-way power driver seat, four-way power passenger seat, leather-wrapped heated seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and floor-mounted shifter, wood trimming, and Rockford Fosgate AM/FM/CD/MP3/SiriusXM stereo system with dual-media playback with wireless headphones, Bluetooth audio streaming, two headphone jacks, iPod connectivity, steering-wheel-mounted controls and 10 speakers.
The SV trim level takes what the S trim level started and adds a little extra luxury, giving the driver and passengers a more enjoyable ride. On the outside, the SV trim level adds in: 18-by-8-inch aluminum alloy wheels with P265/70R18 Goodyear Wrangler outlined white letter tires, chrome bumpers and grille, power side-view mirrors, assist steps, sliding rear window, tinted rear glass, and dampened assist tailgate for smoother opening. The additional features continue inside the SV’s cabin, as it adds in: power door locks and windows, keyless entry, cruise control, driver information center with outside temperature, three 12-volt outlets, overhead console, driver seat lumbar support, upgraded cloth seating, metallic and piano-black accents, and six-speaker sound system with MP3 decoder and auxiliary-audio input.
