The Nissan pickup has never sold all that well here in the United States, but with tough competition from Ford and Chevrolet , it’s easy to see why that is. Nissan has an all-new Titan ready for 2014, but they might have a few changes in store for next year.
The 2011 Titan and Frontier get all-new trim level names, including S, SV, and SL. There will also be 4x4 badging on the truck if the buyer gets the four-wheel drive version. In the comfort department, captain’s chairs will be fitted as standard on the top-level SL trim. The 5.6-liter 317-horsepower V8 will remain.
The trim-level name swap will be on the Frontier as well, but the PRO-4X model will carry over on both trucks. The smaller pickup loses its six-speed manual on the long wheelbase SL King Cab and SV Crew Cab.
Luckily, there is still a six-speed manual available on the lower S trim level and the PRO-4X short wheelbases. The SV adds the Luxury Package and you can even get LATCH child safety seats.
The new Titan for 2011 goes on sale in August and the new six-cylinder Frontier will follow it in September, while four-cylinder Frontiers will go on sale in October.
