The 2011 Nissan Titan features a 317 HP, 5.6 liter V8 engine. It has 385 lbs-foot of torque. The S model comes in king cab or crew cab. It features wide open rear doors, including full size doors on the crew cab model. It has your basic anti lock brake system with power windows and auto door locks. It also has a power back window with a vertical drop.
The Titan comes with the flexible fuel vehicle technology option. This technology involves an internal combustion engine, designed to run on more than just gasoline. It would also be able to run on ethanol fuel.
One big drawback to the S model is the lack of available entertainment options. The S model only comes with an AM/FM/CD audio system and eight speakers. Other models of the 2011 Titan have the option to include the Nissan DVD entertainment system, MP3 playback, steering wheel controls, XM satellite radio receiver and the Rockford Fosgate-powered audio system with 6 CD changer, just to name a few.
All models of the 2011 Titan come with the same safety features. Roof mounted curtain supplemental air bags for side impact and rollover head protection for front and rear passengers. Those air bags are in addition to the basic front airbags built with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with the traditional Control System (TCS) is another feature included in the Titan. The 2011 Titan is also equipped with pipe style steel side door guard beams and tire pressure monitoring system. It also has zone body construction with front and rear crumple zones to help deflect impact during a collision.
What it’s lacking
Another upsetting fact about the S model is it lacks the vehicle security system and the Nissan vehicle immobilizer system. Nissan seems to be neglecting possible owners of their trucks who can’t afford the more expensive models. This is an issue with the entertainment options, as well as safety. Nissan should be able to make these options available on their cheaper models. The Titan features a 28 gallon gas tank that runs an estimated 13 city and 18 highway miles per gallon on the 4X2 model, and 12 city and 17 highway for the 4X4 model.
