Just a handful of years after a full redesign in 2016, the Nissan Titan will get yet another redesign in time for the 2020 model year. The redesigned 2020 Nissan Titan will usher in revised interior and exterior styling, an updated engine, and tons of new tech. Though the light-duty Titan is getting an update, there is no word on whether or not the mid-duty Titan XD will see a similar update.
On the outside, the 2020 Nissan Titan’s new look will include new, bolder headlights with LED technology on PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve trims that produces roughly 120% more light than the previous-generation headlights. It will also gain available LED daytime running lights and LED fog lights, which will be standard in the PRO-4X, SL, and Platinum Reserve trims. Rounding out the exterior updates will be three new grille designs for various trim levels, a new front bumper, updated wheel designs, and three new exterior color options.
Inside, the 2020 Nissan Titan will not go through a complete revision, but it will boast plenty of style and tech updates to keep it fresh. On the style side, the 2020 Titan will gain an updated center stack with new HVAC vents and bezels. It will also get a revised steering wheel with a lava red Nissan logo on select models, and other nips and tucks. The biggest update will be the newly standard 8-inch touchscreen and optional 9-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other technical updates will include a 12-speaker Fender audio system and in-car Wi-Fi.
Under its hood, the 2020 Titan will continue with a 5.6-liter V8 powerplant, but Nissan will bump its output to 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, which are boosts of 10 hp and 19 lb-ft. This power will flow through a new nine-speed automatic transmission and out to the rear wheels or all four wheels with optional four-wheel drive.
The 2020 Nissan Titan will also introduce standard Nissan Safety Shield 360, which is a suite of advanced safety features that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning, high-beam assist, and rear automatic braking. Buyers will also have the opportunity to add a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, traffic-sign recognition, and more.
