Instead of dropping the price or adding more standard equipment, Nissan thought that the Titan needs a bangin’ stereo for the 2019 model year in order to differentiate the half-tonner from other full-size pickups. The automaker is so proud of this addition to the options list that it even mentions the Titan is “the first Nissan vehicle and the only truck in its class to feature the Fender Premium Audio System.”
Coming to the Titan and Titan XD this fall, the Fender-branded system features 12 speakers (10 in the case of the King Cab), 485 watts of amplification, and Acoustic Motion Control from Panasonic. As for the speakers, the 1.0-inch soft dome tweeters are joined by 2.5-inch SDR midrange speakers, 6.0 by 9.0-inch SDR woofers, 3.0-inch center channel speaker, 6.5-inch woofer speakers, as well as an 8.0-inch SLDD subwoofer.

"At Fender, we've spent more than 70 years perfecting tone for players and music enthusiasts around the world, and we're proud to see that same quality extend to our partnership with Panasonic and the Nissan family," commented Dan Heitkemper, vice-president of Licensing & Merchandising at Fender.

"The Premium Audio System delivers uncompromised quality and clarity in every row – producing the realistic ambiance of a performance venue in the 2019 Nissan Titan, a perfect blend for music and truck-lovers alike."

At the end of the day, however, Nissan isn’t focusing where it matters. Priced at $30,030 for the Titan and $32,290 for the Titan XD, the full-size pickup is more expensive than the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. And as far as trucks are concerned, the Blue Oval and Golden Bowtie offer more customization options than Nissan.

Ram even introduced the eTorque mild-hybrid system as standard on the Pentastar V6 engine of the 1500. Because the Endurance V8 is the entry-level option on the Titan, the Nissan plays second fiddle to Ram when it comes to fuel efficiency.

Coming to the defense of the Titan, Nissan offers “America’s best truck warranty” for this fellow. Five years or 100,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage is no small feat, not when Ford can’t do better than thee tears and 60,000 miles.
