After the last year’s refresh, we are pretty sure that the current generation of Nissan’s full-size pickup truck will remain in production for some more time. That update has brought new styling, as well as big novelties on the inside, so we can say it looks fresh enough to compete with rivals. Therefore, the best 2022 Nissan Titan could bring are minor novelties like new standard features and similar things. Other than that, things are about to remain the same
All this means that you may count on a pickup that may not be the most impressive model in the class, but it’s worth considering. It comes with a muscular V8 engine of offers the most engaging handling in the class. Also, we like the infotainment system, as well as the excellent warranty.
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, we presume that the 2022 Nissan Titan will hit the market in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter of 2021.
2022 Nissan Titan Redesign
The current generation of this pickup has been around for five years and as you may presume, the current model still features the same mechanics. Of course, we are talking about a well-known Y62 platform, the same one that underprints models like Patrol and Armada. The biggest strength of the chassis is an excellent setup, which provides engaging handling that makes this truck easy and fun to drive.
In terms of styling, the 2020 update has brought a lot of interesting novelties. This particularly refers to the front end, where you can see new headlights, new grille etc. Considering that the truck now looks pretty attractive, we do not doubt that the 2022 Nissan Titan will continue in the same way. Still, there’s always a chance to see smaller updates in terms of new color options and similar things.
The same thing goes for the interior design. The last year’s update has brought a lot of novelties and when it comes to interior design, the biggest one was definitely a new infotainment screen, the biggest one in the class if we compare base models only. You can choose between Kind and Crew cab layouts, as well as between a 6-foot-7-inch bed or a 5-foot-7-inch bed.
When it comes to the interior quality, we can say a lot of things. While there are some pretty nice materials in certain areas, the overall quality isn’t particularly great. Also, we don’t like how the dashboard looks, definitely older compared to rivals. Of course, this excludes Tundra, but keep in mind that Toyota will give a full redesign this year, the first one after 2007.
The driving position is good, as well as the visibility. However, most rivals offer more spacious cabins.
When it comes to standard and available features, there is always a chance to see a couple of novelties. The current model stands pretty well in this aspect and already comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, two USB ports, satellite radio, and a six-speaker stereo. Currently, the list of options includes a bigger 9-inch touchscreen, as well as things like a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a household-style power outlet, a power-sliding rear window, HD Radio, navigation, two rear USB ports, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system.
When it comes to safety features, the current model already comes standard with goodies like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, driver drowsiness monitoring, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. Additionally, you can get things like adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, a surround-view parking camera system, and front parking sensors.
2022 Nissan Titan Engine
Things under the hood will definitely remain the same. The 2022 Nissan Titan will continue with a 5.6-liter V8, which puts out around 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. It comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission and this combination does a pretty nice job. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, which is about average for the class.
The most capable version can tow a little bit over 11.000 pounds. That’s good but several class-rivals best these numbers. The max payload capacity goes around 2.240 pounds.
2022 Nissan Titan Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no significant changes to come for the next year, we expect that the 2022 Nissan Titan will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2021. Base versions should go around 37.000 dollars.
