2004 Nissan Titan Overview

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.
