New Nissan Titan Makes Handling Simple and Safe
For many drivers, full-size trucks come with a variety of advantages—immense power and unbeatable all-terrain capability, to name a few. However, driving a full-size truck can also be very intimidating. From a handling perspective, it is traditionally much easier, safer, and less stressful to zip around in an agile hatchback than to try to navigate the roads in a giant full-size pickup.
The Nissan Titan is well-known as one of the top-rated full-size pickup trucks on the mainstream auto market. Since it first hit the auto market back in 2004, the Titan has consistently been one of the models to beat in the full-size pickup vehicle class. For the 2020 model year, the classic Nissan Titan underwent a refresh that—among other things—helped the Titan become a less intimidating truck for drivers to handle on the road.
The All-New Nissan Titan
Equipped with a variety of advanced safety features and special sensors, the 2020 Titan is both more powerful and easier to drive than ever before. Keep reading to learn more about 3 features of the 2020 Nissan Titan that make the newest Titan in Nissan’s lineup an easy breeze to handle on the road—even for novice pickup drivers who have less experience in handling a full-size truck of comparable size.
New Automatic Transmission
The new Nissan Titan hit the market for the 2020 model year with a brand-new nine-speed transmission option. This transmission ensures a smoother road feel for drivers and passengers alike and improves the acceleration of this massive full-size pickup truck.
It is also worth noting that the Nissan Titan also underwent an engine upgrade for the 2020 model year. This engine is a 5.6-L V8 engine that delivers an impressive 400 horsepower and 413 lb.-ft. of torque. This upgraded engine pairs neatly with the Titan’s brand-new nine-speed transmission to provide a smoother, more agile ride for drivers and passengers.
Features for Easy Independent Hookups
Like most full-size pickup trucks, the Nissan Titan is built with towing and hauling in mind. For many full-size pickup drivers, the towing capacity of their vehicle is just as important as its drive performance on the road.
The 2020 Nissan Titan improves towing-related handling for drivers with several features that make one-person hookups a breeze. The Titan’s built-in wide-angle rearview camera offers better visibility for drivers to simplify independent hookups.
This full-size pickup truck is also equipped with Nissan’s Trailer Light Check feature, which allows drivers to remotely cycle through their attached trailer’s tail, turn, and brake lights without help—thereby improving both the safety and ease of handling of the Titan.
Special Sensors for Safety
A host of special sensors and advanced safety features help maintain drivers’ peace of mind on the road when behind the wheel of the 2020 Nissan Titan. Some of the most notable high-tech safety features that are built into the 2020 Titan include Rear Automatic Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, and Forward Collision Warning.
These advanced safety features do not disappoint with their impeccable performance in the 2020 Nissan Titan. The all-new Titan’s Rear Automatic Braking feature detects objects behind this full-size pickup truck and brings it to a smooth, full stop if necessary. Its Forward Collision Warning is able to detect decreased speeds and traffic jams up to two cars ahead—even when you can’t see these slow-downs up ahead from the driver’s seat.
The 2020 Titan truck is also equipped with special safety sensors on all sides, which help improve drivers’ orientation on the road and make up for gaps in drivers’ visibility that are often inevitable when driving such a large pickup.
If you’re a driver who has always dreamed of driving a full-size pickup truck but are intimidated by how stressful these trucks can be to handle on the road, keep your eye on the Nissan Titan. The all-new Nissan Titan has a simple yet capable design that makes it one of the safest full-size pickup trucks to handle on the road with ease.
