2020 Nissan Titan Spied: The Pickup Truck Gets A Mid-Cycle Update

Nissan is preparing some changes for its full-size pickup truck. Since we are talking about a mid-cycle update, chances to happen something big are minor. Instead, the 2020 Nisan Titan will most probably host updated ends and improved tech. Some reports hint a new powertrain as well, but that has not been confirmed so far.

A New V6 Engine In The Works

Regarding the engine, truth to be told, the current 5.6-liter V-8 produces a respectable output of 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, but it delivers very poor fuel efficiency. According to EPA-estimates, the truck achieves at 15 mpg in city driving, 21 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in combined driving. Evidently, the carmaker could think of something better. Allegedly, the Japanese company will replace the option with the existing yet upgraded 3.7-liter V6 engine. The mill currently stops at 330 hp, but the improved one might develop nearly 370 ponies. If the option really arrives, it’s going to be hooked to a seven-speed automatic transmission.

Or A Hybrid

Some other reports claim something totally opposite. They are sure that the Nissan Titan V6 isn’t going to happen until the next-gen model arrives. On the other hand, the updated 2020 Titan will continue to use its 5.6-liter V8 option, though this time, the mill will be coupled with a mild-hybrid aid which will be there to improve fuel economy with gathered power from braking. Highly possible, we say!

Diesel Gets No Changes

The diesel-powered 2020 Nissan Titan will keep its 5.0-liter turbocharged V8 Cummins diesel untouched for sure. Meaning, you can expect the same output of 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of grunt.

Changes And Updates

Exterior changes are hidden beneath the camouflage, but irrespective of the fact, we’ve managed to figure out what’s going on there. Nissan’s full-size pickup truck will receive a pair of slightly restyled headlights and taillights, as well as certain changes on its grille. Bumpers, on the other hand, look pretty much untouched.

Inside, the refreshed 2020 Titan is going to get incomparably more changes. The manufacturer will definitely replace today’s 7.0-inch infotainment screen with a larger and high-resolution display. Also, there’s a completely new instrument cluster with new dials all around, as well as new air vents at sides.

Price And Release

The 2020 Nissan Titan will be introduced in the second half of this year, so it will probably become available in dealerships this fall. Pricing hasn’t been officially announced, though we can bet that there will be no drastic changes. Meaning, the base option will continue to cost slightly above $30K.
