The all-new Nissan Titan is one of only two full-size import trucks on the market. Up front, the seats are comfortable and the roomy cabin has plenty of storage. The ride is comfortable, and there's plenty of power on tap. Full throttle sets you back in the seat and belts out the sound of a muscle car. The cargo space uses Nissan's innovative track system, making it possible to locate tie-downs anywhere around the truck bed. Not surprisingly, fuel economy is poor — the price you pay for a 315-horsepower V8 engine. Overall, this is a great-looking truck with plenty of utility and power — just what you need in a full-size pickup. –Perry Stern
The 2010 Nissan Titan offers fantastic visibility and self-confidence from a high-riding vantage point. With a relatively normal-size truck bed, the Titan remains maneuverable around town, but without good sight lines to normal traffic or neighboring cars, you have to trust your guess about how close those other cars may be. The ride is smooth and well-controlled in spite of the plentiful wheel travel. Strongly flared fenders give the Titan a good sense of proportion, and the rugged look they bring extends to the inside as well. In fact, from every angle the Titan looks built for anything and built to last. It feels that way, too. I never struggled for power or brakes, but in the end the Titan does feel a little gratuitously large. Perhaps that's the way it should be. –Paul Hagger
The Titan King Cab is a well-built, heavy-duty truck. Our tester came equipped with a powerful Rockford Fosgate audio system, a truck-bed cargo tie-down system and special tow mirrors. The King Cab has huge amounts of ground clearance and is difficult to get into and out of without a step. The roomy extended crew cab had good room for two, but is able to fit three people if necessary. One of the best features of the rear cab was that the doors could open nearly 180 degrees, which made it easier to fit larger items in the back seat. The 5.7 liter V8 engine has some serious sports-car-like thrust but hurt the pocketbook, as I was able to get only 14 mpg in mostly highway driving. –Joe Chulick
