Nissan unveiled the redesigned 2020 Titan full-size pickup at the epicenter of truck country — the site of the 2019 State Fair of Texas in Dallas, which runs from September 27 through October 20. With a bold new exterior design, interior upgrades, a powerful V8 engine and new advanced safety technology, the 2020 Titan will be offered in King Cab and Crew Cab variations and five trim levels: S, SV, PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve.

“The annual State Fair of Texas is deep in the heart of truck country —with more than 2 million fairgoers attending each year. What better arena for the world debut of this powerful new 2020 TITAN,” said Tiago Castro, director of the North American Light Commercial Vehicles Business Unit of Nissan North America.

The 2020 Titan’s new exterior design features three unique grilles to differentiate between trim levels, new headlights, front bumper, fog lights, badges and new wheel designs. The bold grille designs are flanked by new headlights that have 120 percent more light output in low beam than the previous design, and incorporate new daytime running lights with four LED boards that are standard on the PRO-4X, SL and Platinum Reserve trims. At the rear, the 2020 Titan sports new LED taillights as well as black tailgate accents for the PRO-4X, and satin chrome touches for Platinum Reserve.

A team at Nissan Design America in La Jolla, California, redesigned the large pickup. In fact, it is the same team responsible for designing both the original Titan and the current generation. The team emphasized a high-tech appearance for the large LED headlights, “double boomerang” LED daytime running lights and new LED lighting for the pickup bed.
