The 2011 Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup truck available in King Cabs and crew cabs. The King Cab offers a 6-foot-6-inch cargo bed, while the crew cab features either a 5-foot, 7-inch or 7-foot, 3-inch bed. For 2011, the Titan received a number of new option changes.
Both King Cab and Crew Cab Titans have spacious, functional interiors, easy-to-use controls and plenty of storage. Rear seats fold up to provide a large load floor inside the cab, and the rear doors on King Cabs open wide. Standard and optional features include a spray-on bedliner, movable tie-downs, tailgate illumination and a driver-side lockbox.
Titan’s available with two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, with one drivetrain combination: a 5.6-liter V8 rated 317 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque, coupled to a five-speed automatic transmission with a tow-haul mode. Properly equipped, Titan King Cabs are rated to tow up to 9,500 pounds; the crew cab is rated 100 pounds less. EPA fuel economy for the Titan 4X4 is 12 mpg city/17 mpg highway and 14 mpg combined, while the two-wheel-drive Titan rates 1 mpg better in both averages. Standard on all Titans are ABS disc brakes, stability control, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags.
Titans are available in four trim levels: S, SV, Pro-4X and SL. Choosing the Popular Equipment package adds 18-inch alloy wheels, sliding rear window, keyless entry (crew cab), a receiver hitch and a seven-pin wiring harness connector. The Pro-4X four-wheel drive comes with Rancho shocks, skid plates, a shorter final-drive ratio, all-terrain tires and a push-button rear locking differential.
