Nissan Titan Interior
The 2014 Nissan Titan has undergone few updates since it was introduced for the 2004 model year, and most test drivers say that the Titan's interior material quality and design fall short of its rivals, all of which have been updated more recently. Critics note an abundance of low-quality materials and a dated, bland look, especially since rivals have added high-end trims with luxurious materials and more creative designs.
- "It's cabin, however, has fallen behind the times in terms of material quality and refinement. Low-grade plastics are abundant, and the overall design is dated." -- Left Lane News
- "With a wide array of trims and options, the 2014 Nissan Titan's roomy cabin can range from simple work truck to a near-premium feel." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Titan's cabin is let down by sub-par materials. This isn't a big deal on lower-line trim levels, but the upmarket SL's cabin is nowhere near as posh as its high-line domestic-brand rivals." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "One downside of this no-frills design approach is that most of the cabin's surfaces are covered in cheap-feeling hard plastics." -- Edmunds (2013)
With the standard front bench seat, the Titan seats up to six, while opting for the optional front captains chairs reduces seating capacity to five. Seating options include upgraded cloth upholstery, leather upholstery, a flat-folding front passenger seat and heated and power-adjustable front seats. Reviewers agree that the optional front bucket seats are more comfortable and supportive than the standard bench seat. One test driver says that the wide opening of the King cab's rear doors makes it easier to get in and out of the back seats. Reviewers say the King cab's rear seat offers very little knee room, though they say the Crew cab's rear accommodations are more spacious.
- "The rear door of Titan's King Cab model swings out 168 degrees, making it much easier for rear-seat passengers to enter and exit. And when the rear bench seat isn't holding passengers, it folds up to create additional interior cargo space." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "King Cabs have barely acceptable knee space if the front seat's not set far back. Crews have generous legroom. Some testers find the Crew Cab seat too upright and lacking in thigh support. King Cab rear doors open 180 degrees for great access in tight parking spaces. Tall step-in hampers entry and exit in any Titan." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The 2014 Nissan Titan comes standard with a six-speaker stereo and few other notable features. Most trucks’ base trims are similarly-equipped, though they tend to be regular cab models with a lower starting price. Options include power windows and mirrors, cruise control, an eight- or 10-speaker stereo system, a USB port, Bluetooth, Pandora Internet radio capability when paired with a compatible smartphone, satellite radio, a rear-seat entertainment system, navigation, rear parking sensors and a backup camera.
Reviewers say that the Titan's gauges are legible. One critic dislikes that features like power windows and cruise control aren't standard, especially since the Titan's starting price is more than many of its rivals’. Some reviewers also complain that some controls on the center stack require a long reach.
- "With an MSRP of nearly $30,000, you might be surprised to find a column shifter (due to the bench seat) and manual-adjust mirrors in your base Titan. Also lacking are features such as cruise control, Bluetooth wireless connectivity and even power windows. To get those items in a 2014 Titan, you'll need to spend more money on options or step up to another trim." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Gauges are large and easily readable and the controls are well-placed and intuitive. A number of thoughtful details enhance the space's utility, including storage bins, 12-volt DC/120-volt AC power outlets and an available front passenger seat that folds flat to make a handy work surface." -- Edmunds (2013)
- "The gauges have a clean design. Most controls are large, but their markings are indistinct. Some functions require a long reach for driver or front passenger." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The Titan King cab comes with a 6.6-foot bed, while the Crew cab is available with either a 5.6- or 7.25-foot bed. Test drivers appreciate features that make carrying cargo easier, such as the Titan's bed-mounted track system with cleats to help strap cargo into the bed, as well as its fender-mounted storage compartment. They also say both cab styles offer plenty of in-cab storage, but one finds the center console lid to be too big and bulky.
- "This available feature [Utili-Track Cargo Management] endows the Titan's truck bed with two rails and four cleats to help lock cargo in place, a great system to have when you need to tie down and haul uneven loads." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
- "Bins and cupholders abound in both cab styles, but the bench seat's center-armrest cubby has a large, cumbersome lid. The Crew Cab's near-flat rear floor and fold-up rear-seat cushions provide outstanding in-cab storage. A locking fender compartment is a nice value-add." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "Speaking of that bed, available options including a spray-on bedliner, adjustable tie-down points, tailgate-area lighting and power outlets and a clever outside storage compartment behind the left rear wheel add to its utility." -- Edmunds (2013)
