The word titan would usually refer to something or someone of enormous size, power, strength or influence. When used as a name for a vehicle, most people would expect such vehicle to be extremely large, powerful and capable and has the ability to outperform most other vehicles of its kind. Well, there actually is a vehicle that is named as such, the Nissan Titan; and its performance and characteristics is way far from disappointing the expectations created by its name.
The Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup truck manufactured and sold by Nissan Motors in the United States. While most Nissan cars and vehicles are manufactured in Japan, the Nissan Titan is distinct as it was manufactured in the United States, with the general North American car buyer as its specific market in mind. It was introduced by Nissan Motors only in 2004. But while the Nissan Titan is only a sophomore in the large pickup truck market category, it can already well match and even surpass the performance and characteristics of veteran full-size pickup trucks manufactured by General Motors, Ford, Chevrolet, Honda and Toyota.
As the name of the vehicle implies, the Nissan Titan is really large and wide. Because of this large size, it can accommodate a lot of features and equipments that one can't find on any other full-size pickup. The Nissan Titan has an extremely wide and versatile cargo bed; complete with the add-ons and extra accessories that further enhances its cargo carrying functionality. It also features wide side doors and a one-of-a-kind wide opening rear doors that can swing open up to nearly 168. Inside, the Nissan Titan houses a lot of equipments and amenities that makes traveling with it more comfortable and enjoying. Equipments like a DVD system, audio system, CD changers, navigation system, versatile seats and memory seat systems fill up the interior of the vehicle. And with all of these equipments inside, the truck can still accommodate as much as six passengers comfortably.
But the Nissan Titan is not only all size and space. As its name suggests, the Nissan Titan is also a powerful and capable pickup truck. It is gifted with a 5.6-liter V8 engine rated at 305 hp with 379 lb-ft torquea product of Nissan's brilliant engine engineering and design. This engine is coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission in both column shifter and gated shifter arrangements. And to make it more capable off-road, the Nissan Titan has a shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive system that allows you to shift from 2WD to 4WD whenever necessary.
With all these equipments and parts that the Nissan Titan is equipped with, it is hard to think of any other parts that the vehicle lacks. It is also equally hard to find replacement Nissan Titan parts that can match the quality and performance of all these original Nissan Titan stock parts. A genuine Nissan Titan part is always the best choice whenever you have to replace a part or two, but if you can't find one, you can pick an aftermarket Nissan Titan part instead, although with much care.
