2008 Nissan Titan review and picture


It takes a lot to be the best of the best in the category of pick up trucks these days, even though the competition has sloughed off a bit as more and more attention is being allowed to other kinds of vehicles, like sedans and SUVs. All the same, the 2008 Nissan Titan does not rise up to this difficult challenge, but that is not necessarily a slight against its name, because despite not being at the top of its class, it is still an above average vehicle that any truck fiend would be proud to own.

The Good:

  • hungry new V8 engine
  • lots of interior room
  • interesting features and creative design

The Bad:

  • lack of comfort compared to rivals
  • lack of varied drivetrain and cab options
  • exhaust noisy

The 2008 Nissan Titan came out in 2004, and it has only gotten small changes and additions since then until the 2008 model year. This year, it’s getting something big, in the form of a new model for long wheelbase, as well as a lot more to add to the long list of features, a bigger and better design, and a great interior improvement.

There are two cab styles for this pickup truck, the King or extended cab, and the crew up. These body styles come in four trim levels, the XE, SE, Pro-4X, and LE. The XE comes with the following features standard:

  • 18 inch wheels
  • cruise control
  • AC
  • CD player

Then is the SE, the next step up, which adds to the list:

  • 18 inch alloy wheels
  • power windows
  • leather seating
  • CD changer
  • heated mirrors

Third is the Pro-4x, which is available only in four wheel drive and comes with:

  • Rancho shocks
  • ready to go skid plates
  • all terrain tires
  • push button rear locking differential

Finally is the tip top model, the LE, which brings:

  • 20 inch alloy wheels
  • cargo tie down tracks
  • rear park assist
  • climate control
  • Bluetooth
  • power adjustable pedals
  • auto dimming mirrors

The 2008 Nissan Titan did well on crash tests, scoring four stars for passenger protection in frontal impacts done by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and a good for side impact from the Insurance Institure for Highway Safety. It comes with many safety features, such as antilock disc brakes and stability control.
