Exterior Features
The 2012 Nissan Titan is a full-size pickup truck, with seating for 6 passengers. The Titan is available in rear-wheel or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD) and in four trim levels and two cab styles. The King Cab (extended cab) features a 78-inch cargo bed, and the Crew Cab offers a choice between a 67-inch and an 87-inch bed. Rear seats may be folded down to add more cargo space. The base model is the King Cab S, which features 18-inch steel wheels and a lockable tailgate, as does the Crew Cab S. The Titan SV features chrome steel bumpers and tailgate assist, plus a receiver hitch and wiring harness connector. The SL adds 20-inch alloy wheels. The Pro-4X trim is available only with 4WD and adds a lockable bedside compartment, tie-down cleats, step rails, and an upgraded tailgate area. On King Cab models, the rear doors open nearly 180 degrees. With proper equipment, towing capacity is 9,500 pounds.

Interior Features
The Nissan Titan S trim provides bench seating, air conditioning, and a 6-speaker sound system. The S Crew Cab adds power windows and locks. The SV trim features additional power accessories, cruise control, and an upgraded sound system.

Optional Features
Many of the upgrades that are included on the upper trims are available as options on the lower trims. Most options come in packages. Available on the highest-level trim are leather upholstery, sunroof, navigation system, rear-seat entertainment system, Rancho dampers, heavy-duty skid plates, off-road tires, front tow hooks, premium sound system, and many other performance features and styling upgrades.

Under the Hood
The Nissan Titan's standard power plant is a 5.6-liter V-8 engine rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb.-ft. of torque, and mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy figures for the 2012 Nissan Titan are:
- Titan with 2WD: 13/18/15 mpg (city/highway/combined)
- Titan with 4WD: 12/17/14 mpg

Safety
Standard safety features on the 2012 Nissan Titan include anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, and a full complement of air bags, with many high-tech safety features optional.

To date, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has not tested the 2012 Nissan Titan. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Nissan Titan received \"Good\" ratings--the Institute's highest--for frontal-offset and side-impact crash protection and roof strength.
