Fans of the Nissan Titan who’ve stayed away from buying a new model or switching from a competing automaker can rejoice. The company announced the 2019 Titan pickup will come with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility when it goes on sale later this year.

The added systems are part of a new 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreen system, which brings additional improvements to the truck’s infotainment system. Upgrades include a standard USB port with higher-trim models receiving two additional USB-A charging ports, which are illuminated.

Other changes to the 2019 Titan’s entertainment options include switching the Rockford Fosgate audio for an optional Fender-branded audio system, which Volkswagen also uses. The 5.0-inch standard screen is no more.

Another addition to the 2019 model year is a rear-door alert system that honks the horn if it detects a child or pet in the back seat. This is designed to alert parents and pet owners not to forget their precious rear-seat cargo. The 2019 Nissan Titan receives a revised grille on the SV trim along with two new additional paint colors.

The addition of CarPlay and Auto puts the Titan in line with its competitors when it comes to creature comforts. Only the Toyota Tundra lacks integration of either smartphone capability system in the full-size pickup truck segment.

Nissan hasn’t released pricing information yet.
