Chicago Preview: 2008 Nissan Titan

With the Chicago Auto Show kicking off next week, the automakers are starting to show off their wares. Nissan will have a trio of '08 truck updates (Titan, Armada, and Pathfinder) on display, and the first one we'll show you is the freshened Titan. Nissan's full-sized pickup gets a lightly updated face and will now be available in a new long-wheelbase version (shown). Also take note of the beefier rearview mirrors, which jut out on twin stalks instead of the more compact one-piece folding units used on the previous version.

A new PRO-4 trim level has also been added as well, but we don't have additional details on what that specifically includes at this time. We do know that heated leather seats, Bluetooth connectivity and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system are among the creature comforts available on the '08. Motivation comes from a V8 dishing out 317 horses and 385 lbs of torque, which all translates into a maximum towing capacity of 9,500 lbs. -- not enough to best either GM or Toyota's new trucks. We'll update you with more complete info as soon as we can get our hands on it.
