Despite rumors reporting that the 2023 Nissan Titan would be discontinued in the U.S., the Japanese automaker’s large pickup is expected to survive for the new model year. We don’t expect the truck to arrive with any changes, as the 2023 Titan should be a carryover model.
On the outside, the 2023 Nissan Titan should look similar to the current truck that’s on sale. The Titan’s exterior ranges from work truck with lower trims, to upscale with higher models. As a carryover model, we expect the 2023 Titan to retain the same large shield grille, square headlights, boxy rear end, and prominent front bumper as the current truck.
Because of its age, the interior of the 2023 Titan has an outdated interior design. Without any expected changes, the Titan will continue to have the same look. The current Titan features a plain interior design with simple lines, chunky elements, and large buttons. As a sign of its age, the Titan continues to feature a column-mounted gear shifter.
Nissan isn’t expected to make any changes to the Titan’s tech features for the 2023 model year. The current truck comes with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, six audio speakers, satellite radio, and a 7-inch digital instrument cluster. Available tech features include a 9-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, two USB ports, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system.
The current Nissan Titan comes with a 5.6-liter V8 engine that’s rated at 400 horsepower. The engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is optional. When properly equipped, the Titan can tow up to 9,320 pounds and haul up to 1,710 pounds. This powertrain is expected to go unchanged for 2023.
Nissan offers the current Titan with an extensive list of standard safety features. Pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam assist, and parking sensors are standard. Available safety features include traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view parking camera.
