2008 Nissan Titan Review

MY08 Titans Nissan gave the Titan, introduced in 2004, a refresher for the 2008 model year. Updates include a revised and less-flashy grille, new foglights, new alloys, and an updated interior. The interior is still “big truck” through and through, but it’s much more refined, especially the center stack.

The real big news for the 2008 Titan is the availability of the long wheelbase model. You can choose to get the long bed with either the King or Crew cab models. As if the Titan wasn’t already huge, now it’s even more massive.

The XE, SE, and LE trim levels stick around, with the addition of the PRO-4X. This is an off-road truck, designed to compete with the Silverado Z71, Ford FX4, and Toyota TRD. Goodies include full-length skid plates and Ranch heavy-duty shocks.

2008 Nissan Titan Specs
  • 317 HP 5.6 liter DOHC V8
  • 5 speed automatic transmission
  • Extended or Crew Cab
  • Short or Long wheelbase
  • EPA Says : 12 mpg city / 17 mpg highway
2008 Nissan Titan Reviews

The Truth about Cars reviews the 2008 Nissan Titan and writes – ‘Still, it’s a dearth of power compared to Tundra’s 381hp and 401 ft.-lbs. of twist. But the Titan isn’t about to be left in the dust. A low first gear ratio and impatient torque converter get the 5,323lbs leviathan moving in a hurry– sometimes a little too quickly. Thanks to the standard limited-slip differential, I painted two symmetrical 10’ black lines on the concrete when I launched from a four-way stop. Fortunately the cop right behind me had better things to do than write a love letter to my spastic right foot.’

Cars.com reviews the 2008 Nissan Titan and writes – ‘When it debuted for 2004, the Nissan Titan was the first Japanese pickup truck to truly challenge the domestics in terms of sheer size. For 2008, the model grows even larger with a new long-wheelbase version. Additionally, the Titan’s exterior appearance has been mildly changed, and a new PRO-4X trim level is available. Extended cab (King Cab) and crew cab models are offered, and Desert Stone and Timberline are new colors.’
