2004 Nissan Titan

As its name implies, the all-new 2004 Nissan Titan is big and powerful.  In fact, in 2004, it was the biggest Japanese-produced pickup yet produced.  Clearly trying to compete with the industry-leading domestic pickups, the 2004 Titan has better torque and more interior leg and headroom than its American rivals.  It comes as either a 2WD or 4WD in Crew or King Cabs.  The King is the extended cab version.  Both are four-doors.  No two-doors are offered. Power comes from a 305-hp, 5.3-liter DOHC V8 and 5-speed automatic, putting out 379 lb-ft of torque at 6000 rpm.  Towing capacity is a meaty 9,500 pounds.  Two cargo beds are offered -- a 5'7" and a 6'6".

Three trim levels take you up the convenience chain.  The XE is the base model, with air conditioning and a CD.  SE adds larger 18-inch wheels and front row captain's chairs in place of the 40/20/40 front bench.  The LE adds power front seats and leather upholstery, plus an optional sunroof.  ABS brakes, dual front airbags, a tire monitor are standard, with side curtain bags and stability control optional.  The 2004 Titan also offers some segment innovations in the cargo bed.  The Utili-track rail system on the floor and sides allows you to attach objects onto it.  And a factory-installed sprayed-in bedliner to help protect the bed is surprisingly the first of its kind.  Other options include an off-roading package.

There are lots of storage compartments, including an armrest console with the front bench seat.  A lockable box in the bed is also a nice touch.  Interior room is spacious, with the King Cab featuring 180-degree rear doors for easier passenger or loading access.  Drivers of the 2004 Nissan Titan praise its power, pickup, and towing capabilities, saying it rivals the F-150.  While providing the heft of a truck, it handles a lot like a car, though the turning radius is noticeably large.  Other highlights include the styling, the Utili-track, and the roominess.  Criticisms focus on the low gas mileage, cheap-looking interior materials, and long-term seat comfort.  There is an issue with early brake wear, and Nissan customer service does not impress owners.
