Models and equipment[edit]

All models come standard with a 32-valve, 5.6-litre engine, VK56DE, which generates 317 hp (236 kW) (305 hp or 227 kW on 2004–2006 models) and 385 lb·ft (522 N·m) of torque. The Titan is equipped with a fully boxed ladder frame that is available in either rear-wheel drive or a shift-on-the-fly four-wheel-drive system coupled with a five-speed RE505A automatic transmission. An automatic brake-limited slip (ABLS) system is available on all Titans. The Titan is available as a King Cab (extended cab) or a crew cab with a full-sized back seat, with no regular cab being offered. The King Cab features a 6-foot-7-inch (2.01 m) bed, while the crew cab has a 5-foot-7-inch (1.70 m) bed. In 2008, a longer wheelbase model was offered with either an 8-foot-3-inch (2.51 m) bed on the King Cab or a 7-foot-3-inch (2.21 m) bed on the crew cab. There were originally four trim levels available: the S, SV, Pro-4x, SE and LE. The SE and LE trim were eventually replaced by the luxury SL trim. The S was the base model, the SV a mid-level model with more features, the PRO-4X is the off-road-oriented version, and the top level SL is filled with high-end luxurious features, including 20-inch alloy wheels as standard equipment.
