State fairs are for more than just cotton candy and Ferris wheels. This year’s State Fair of Texas is bringing many new automotive debuts worth talking about. One of the interesting additions is with the 2019 Nissan Titan and Titan XD models. Not only will they have upgraded safety equipment, but also a new touchscreen and premium sound system.
Technology in the 2019 Nissan Titan
The 2019 Nissan Titan features an upgraded seven-inch touchscreen standard on each truck. This compatible display works with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, plus NissanConnect systems. There’s also some charging and USB ports in the cabin where both the rear and front passengers can reach. The upgraded Fender Premium Sound System now has a nine-channel amplifier plus Acoustic Motion Control.
The Crew Cab, King Cab, and Titan XD models now come standard with a Rear Door Alert system. This utilizes sensors on the doors and horn to remind drivers that they need to check the back doors when the vehicle is parked.
Nissan also released two brand-new color options. You can choose from Midnight Pine or Moab Sunset. If you prefer a custom look, there’s also the Midnight Edition Package. This includes dark headlamps, body-color front grille, black door handles, black exterior badging, and black fog lamp finishers.
The Titan is also available with several 1/2-ton model options. These include the Single Cab, Crew Cab, and King Cab. They come equipped with both 4×4 or 4×2 drive configurations. There’s also a 5.6-liter V8 engine on board that produces 390 horsepower. This perfectly pairs with the seven-speed automatic transmission. The XD models also include a Single Cab, Crew Cab, or King Cab, but they feature two bed length options as well. There’s also a choice of the 5.6-liter V8 or a Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbodiesel engine instead.
The Titan XD Diesel comes with a larger DEF tank for the 2019 model year. It also comes with an integrated gooseneck hitch and a plug inside the bed to add more towing features. Don’t take our word about the exciting additions, USA Today ranked the 2019 Nissan Titan as one of the Top 5 Full-Size Pickups of 2019.
