The 2007 Nissan Titan provides a full-size pickup truck that directly competes with Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, and GMC, which have dominated the full-size truck market for decades.
Equipped with a V-8 engine and a shiftable automatic transmission, it sells either as a King Cab (extended cab) or a Crew Cab. The King Cab features either a 6.5- or eight-foot bed, as well as rear-opening side doors to allow passengers or cargo to access the back seat, which seats three. The Crew Cab has four standard doors with more legroom for back-seat passengers, and truck beds that measure a foot shorter than those in the King Cab. The Titan also offers an Ethanol 85 Flex Fuel option.
Rear drive and four-wheel drive remain available. Nissan offers no regular cab for the lineup. The Titan comes in three trim levels: the base XE, SE, and LE.
Body Styles: Crew Cab pickup, King Cab pickup
Engines: 5.6-liter V-8
Transmissions: five-speed shiftable automatic
Models: Nissan Titan XE Crew Cab, Nissan Titan SE Crew Cab, Nissan Titan LE Crew Cab, Nissan Titan XE King Cab, Nissan Titan SE King Cab, Nissan Titan LE King Cab
New option packages join the lineup for 2007. Horsepower estimates get revised, based on new formula for calculation.
The Nissan Titan features big flared fenders, a boxy front end, and chrome accents. It has a very sporty look, and offers the performance and handling to go along with the first visual impression.
The King Cab has two rear-opening doors to gain access to the back seat. The doors open a full 168 degrees, and the front door can be closed after the back door is opened. The King Cab features a 6.5-foot bed. The Crew Cab has four full-size doors, offering easy access to the back seat. It uses a 5.5-foot bed, giving up a foot to the increased legroom and cargo space in the rear seating area.
Nissan’s Utili-track system features channels in the bed and removable cleats so you can customize the storage units within the bed of the truck.
Standard equipment on the base XE includes 17-inch wheels with P245/75R17 tires, variable intermittent wipers, privacy glass, a rear defogger, a power sliding rear window, power door locks, power windows, and painted bumpers. The SE adds 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille, and chrome bumpers. The 2007 Nissan Titan LE includes fog lights, auto delay-off dusk-sensing headlights, and turn signal mirrors. Options include a power sunroof.
The interior of the 2007 Titan feels roomy, and offers sufficient head and legroom to the back-seat passengers. The front seat configuration can either be a single front bench seat that seats three or a set of captain’s chairs with a center console and gear shift between them. Gauges and controls seem well-placed and easy to use.
A 40/20/40-split front bench seat, a split-folding rear seatback, rear ventilation ducts, cruise control, a front console with storage, speed-proportional power steering, a 12V power outlet, a tilt steering wheel with cruise control functions, air-conditioning, a tachometer, and an AM/FM/CD audio system with eight speakers comprise standard equipment on the 2007 Nissan Titan.
The SE adds captain’s chairs, a fold-flat passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an overhead console with storage, and an AM/FM audio system with a six-disc CD changer and six speakers.
On top of that, the LE adds power heated front seats, leather upholstery, power-adjustable pedals, 12V power outlets, dual-zone climate control, leather and alloy interior trim, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, memory settings for two drivers, external temperature display, a compass, and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system with a six-disc CD changer.
Optional equipment spray-in bed liner, a navigation system with an LCD display screen, a DVD entertainment system, and satellite radio.
Performance & Handling
The 2007 Nissan Titan’s engine offers excellent throttle response. Acceleration feels quick, and the five-speed automatic responds well. Handling proves exceptional, and ride quality seems good in most situations, though the four-wheel drive may deliver a bumpy ride on rough roads. The transmission features a Tow/Haul mode which reduces heat buildup and unnecessary shifting. The four-wheel ABS with braking assist and electronic brake force distribution ensures impressive braking performance. Standard equipment on the part-time four-wheel-drive model includes skid plates, electronic hi-lo gear selection, and automatic locking hubs.
When properly equipped, the Crew Cab has a maximum towing capacity of 9400 pounds. The Titan King Cab reaches a maximum towing capacity of 9500 pounds.
The Titan uses a double wishbone front independent suspension and a solid live axle rear suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars, and ventilated front disc and solid rear disc brakes.
Standard safety equipment on the 2007 Nissan Titan includes four-wheel ABS and tire pressure monitoring. Optional safety equipment includes front seat-mounted side airbags, full side-curtain airbags, and stability control (on the SE and LE).
