The 2014 Nissan Titan: everything you’d want in a basic work truck

When it was first introduced for the 2004 model year, it’s doubtful many thought the Nissan Titan would continue to be sold virtually unchanged a decade later. However, that’s the case, with this truck available in either King Cab with a 6-foot 7-inch bed, or Crew Cab with a shorter 5-foot 7-inch bed. Available trims include S, SV and Pro-4X, with the lineup-topping SL trim offered only for the Titan Crew Cab.

Considering when it first debuted, it’s not surprising that the Titan feels considerably dated even compared to its contemporary rivals. There’s value if all that’s needed is a basic work truck, but note that it lacks many of the features of its contemporary competitors in terms of capability and features. The V8 provides good power, but fuel economy is the worst in its class, and it doesn’t offer the variety of engines, drivetrains, cab and bed configurations like competitors such as the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado.

5 reasons to buy the 2014 Nissan Titan

What We Like

Power: If you only look at a spec sheet, the Titan’s 5.6-liter V8 seems underpowered compared to its rivals. The reality is that this big truck accelerates aggressively, with a very responsive gas pedal. The Titan also has little problem hauling a full load of passengers or heavy cargo in the bed.

Driving: The Titan’s brakes and steering response maintained competitive parity with contemporary pickups, combining to make the Titan a surprisingly nimble city dweller. However, the dated truck’s underpinnings are exposed when it comes to ride quality, which is handily outclassed by newer trucks like the Chevy Silverado and Ram 1500.

What Needs Improvement

It’s Dated: The 2014 Titan might be a good pick if you’re looking for a back-to-basics work truck with good power and a roomy interior, but if you’re looking for something with a more modern feel it might not measure up. It was first introduced in 2004, and by 2014 full-size trucks from Ford, Chevy and Ram all felt much more modern, with less utilitarian interiors, and with much improved fuel economy.
