Nissan Titan History


Nissan created the Titan in order to provide consumers with an alternative in the full-size pickup truck segment, and although the Japanese automaker knew sales would never seriously challenge that of the big three Detroit trucks, the Nissan Titan has experienced sales success in its over 10-year long run.

Early History

The first Nissan Titan was introduced in 2004 and was based on the stretched Nissan F-Alpha platform, which it shares with the Nissan Armada and Infiniti QX56. North American buyers praised the Titan for its roomy interior, towing capability, fresh styling, and innovative features. That unprecedented combination resulted in the Nissan Titan being named a surprise finalist for the North American Truck of the Year award in 2004.

Recent History

The Nissan Titan is currently being assembled at Nissan’s Canton, Mississippi, manufacturing facility, and will remain there for the foreseeable future. The next generation of the Nissan Titan is expected to be unveiled in the upcoming years, but just because the Titan hasn’t been redesigned, doesn’t mean Nissan hasn’t been making improvements to its flagship truck. The Nissan Titan has benefited from added features like navigation, enhanced Rockford Fosgate sound system, Bluetooth, a RearView Monitor, and the NissanConnect system.
