2013 Nissan Titan Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2013 Nissan Titan was new.


Interior: 7.0

Test drivers say that the base 2013 Nissan Titan has a basic and functional interior, which isn’t uncommon among full-size work trucks. However, some reviewers note that higher trim levels don’t offer the premium materials you’ll find in comparably-priced pickups in the class.

  • "Titan's cabin is let down by sub-par materials. This isn't a big deal on lower-line trim levels, but the upmarket SL's cabin is nowhere near as posh as its high-line domestic-brand rivals." -- Consumer Guide 
  • "One downside of this no-frills design approach is that most of the cabin's surfaces are covered in cheap-feeling hard plastics." -- Edmunds 
  • "With a wide array of trims and options, the 2013 Nissan Titan's cabin can range from that of a simple work truck to something with a near-premium feel." -- Kelley Blue Book 
  • "The overall interior layout is functional, and it's been improved over the first version, which seemed to have more minivan cues than rugged truck personality." -- Cars.com 


While reviewers aren’t crazy about the front bench seat that comes standard in the 2013 Titan, most agree that the optional front bucket seats are comfortable and supportive. One reviewer notes that head- and legroom are ample up front, while another says that the back seat is also comfortable. Both models seat six with a front bench, or five with front bucket seats. Cloth upholstery comes standard in the 2013 Titan, while seating upgrades include leather upholstery and power-adjustable, heated front seats.

  • "Some testers judge the bench seat as too flat and firm for best comfort. All agree the buckets are the way to go as they provide much better support. Headroom and legroom are ample either way." -- Consumer Guide 
  • "Seating comfort is good both front and back. Rear doors on extended King Cab models open 180 degrees for easy access. ..." -- Edmunds 
  • "The Titan's steering wheel tilts but does not telescope, which can compromise your driving position. Power-adjustable pedals are available, though." -- Kelley Blue Book

Interior Features

The 2013 Nissan Titan King Cab comes standard with air conditioning and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player, while the Crew Cab model adds power windows and locks and an eight-speaker stereo to the list of standard equipment. Options and features available in higher trims include a sliding or power-retractable rear window, cruise control, keyless entry, power mirrors, rear parking sensors, navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a backup camera and an upgraded stereo with a USB port, Bluetooth and satellite radio.

While test drivers say that the 2013 Titan features clear gauges and large, straightforward controls, one reviewer says that some switchgear can be difficult to reach from the driver’s seat. Additionally, another critic is let down by the 2013 Titan’s relatively short list of standard features, especially given its high starting price.

  • "The gauges have a clean design. Most controls are large, but their markings are indistinct. Some functions require a long reach for driver or front passenger." -- Consumer Guide 
  • "Gauges are large and easily readable and the controls are well-placed and intuitive. A number of thoughtful details enhance the space's utility, including storage bins, 12-volt DC/120-volt AC power outlets and an available front passenger seat that folds flat to make a handy work surface." -- Edmunds 
  • "Even at around $30,000, a base Titan King Cab lacks creature comforts such as power windows and mirrors." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The cabin in my test truck had a lot of typical big-pickup fixtures - hefty door handles, a big armrest and no shortage of overhead storage bins." -- Cars.com (2008)


Reviewers like that the 2013 Nissan Titan has a number of cup holders and storage cubbies inside, as well as rear seats that fold up to create a useful, flat load floor. The Titan King Cab comes with a 6-foot-6-inch bed, while Crew Cab models come with either a 5-foot-7-inch or 7-foot-3-inch bed. Some auto writers also say that optional features like the bed rail cargo system and lockable fender storage compartment on the side of the bed help increase the Titan’s utility.

  • "Bins and cupholders abound in both cab styles, but the bench seat's center-armrest cubby has a large, cumbersome lid. The Crew Cab's near-flat rear floor and fold-up rear-seat cushions provide outstanding in-cab storage. A locking fender compartment is a nice value-add." -- Consumer Guide 
  • "Rear doors on extended King Cab models open 180 degrees for easy access, and the rear seat bottoms fold up to create a flat load floor for valuable items you'd rather not leave in the bed." -- Edmunds 
  • "It makes sense, then, that Nissan focused on adding practical features to the Titan to better help it do the work for which trucks are known: hauling stuff. To that end, available features include a 120-volt AC outlet, recessed lights and the Utili-track cargo system in the truck bed, and a lockable compartment behind the left rear wheel." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Inside the cab there are plenty of storage options that are easily within reach and deep enough to hold most common items used by drivers, such as CDs and cell phones." -- PickupTrucks.com (2004)
