Nissan’s full-size pickup receives a major refreshening with new exterior and interior styling treatments, the most powerful standard V8 in class, new 9-speed automatic transmission and standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology.

It takes a big stage to debut a big truck, which is why Nissan selected the State Fair of Texas to launch the new, redesigned 2020 Nissan TITAN full-size pickup here today. The new TITAN builds on the foundation of America’s Best Truck Warranty1 and exceptional quality as the J.D. Power top-ranked “Large Light Duty Truck” in the 2019 Initial Quality Study (IQS).

The changes to TITAN for the 2020 model year include a bold new front end design highlighted by an aggressive new grille and light configuration, a family-oriented interior redesign dominated by a high-resolution Integrated Command Center with 9-inch touchscreen with internal WiFi router, an extensive list of advanced available safety technology – including class-exclusive standard Rear Automatic Braking – and enhanced driving performance.

The 2020 TITAN will be offered in King Cab and Crew Cab body configurations and five well-equipped graded levels – S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve. The new TITAN reinforces Nissan Intelligent Mobility, including standard Nissan Safety Shield 360 technology for all grade levels. It goes on sale in early 2020.

“The annual State Fair of Texas is deep in the heart of truck country – with more than 2 million fairgoers attending each year. What better arena for the world debut of this powerful new 2020 TITAN,” said Tiago Castro, director, North American Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, Nissan North America, Inc.

The 2020 TITAN redesign was led by a team at Nissan Design America (NDA) in La Jolla, Calif., the creators of both the original TITAN and the current generation design. Following a theme of “Powerful Warrior,” the designers emphasized the “solid beam” construction and commanding presence with a high-tech appearance to the large LED headlights and “double boomerang” LED daytime running lights. New all-LED lighting has been added to the pickup bed, while the rear exterior design includes new LED lights and tailgate finishers. Other new exterior items include the front bumper, interlocking frame grille and surround, fog lights, badging, new wheel designs and three dynamic new colors.

“TITAN’s powerful new look matches its powerful new 400 hp-strong powertrain. In addition, it includes a higher degree of differentiation between grade levels. For example, there are three separate grille designs and five different wheels, allowing for more owner customization straight from the factory,” said Castro.
