2017 Nissan Titan Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2017 Nissan Titan was new.


Interior: 8.2

The 2017 Nissan Titan derides the notion that a truck can't have class. Its attractive cabin features plenty of high-quality materials, and the Platinum Reserve trim's cabin feels downright luxurious. The feeling of quality extends to the seats, which offer plenty of room in each row, although taller folks may wish the front seats slid back farther. The NissanConnect infotainment system highlights the features list. The system is easy to use thanks to the easily reachable controls, but the touch screen's graphics and interface feel a little long in the tooth compared to rival systems.

Versatility is the name of the game with the Titan's bed. The 5-foot-7 bed offers a number of features like movable tie-down cleats and in-bed lights that make securing cargo a breeze, and there are other features that are great whether at work or play, like an in-bed power outlet.

  • "Trucks have become more powerful, more capable and more economical since the Titan debuted in 2003, but above all they've also become significantly more luxurious. Nissan has jumped on this bandwagon with gusto. Not only are there highfalutin trim levels and premium options galore, but the 2017 Titan also comes standard with a few touches that improve the experience of simply being in the truck." -- Left Lane News
  • "Pickup aficionados who appreciate a well-appointed interior as much as they do a capacious cargo bed will absolutely fall in love with the Titan Platinum Reserve model's nobly furnished cabin, which employs the same innovative nouveau-riche themes that debuted in the Titan XD. Do you need square-quilted leather on full-size truck? Probably not, but the execution is lovely." -- New York Daily News


The six-seat base Titan has a split-folding front bench seat, but some higher trims feature front bucket seats that drop seating capacity to five. For now, the Titan is only offered in Crew Cab models, but Single Cab and King (extended) Cab models will be available later in the model year. Cloth upholstery is standard, and there are a variety of available seating features, including leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, heated and cooled front seats, heated second-row seats, and a heated steering wheel.

With two rows of spacious seats, the Titan is equally at home serving the role of the rugged work truck or the family vehicle. The front seats generally have plenty of room, though they don't slide back that far, so tall occupants may feel pressed for legroom. The spacious rear seats have enough room for adult passengers, but they also have plenty of LATCH connectors, so you can easily strap in a car seat if necessary. And whether they're in the front or back, all occupants will appreciate the quiet interior, which does a great job keeping you insulated from outside noise.

  • "There's plenty of passenger space in both rows of the crew cab, making the Titan as much a family hauler as it is a hauler of who-knows-what in the bed. Cleverly integrated child seat latches? Check. Relatively low step-in height? Check." -- New York Daily News
  • Oddly, the front seats don't go back as far back as might be expected, so really tall drivers may wish for more legroom, but headroom won't likely be a problem. Step-in is moderately high, but it's higher in back, where passengers will find ample space." -- Consumer Guide
  • "Acoustic glass is used in the cab as well to prevent additional noise intrusion." -- Left Lane News

Interior Features

Standard features in the Titan include Bluetooth, a USB port, a six-speaker audio system, a text messaging assistant, and the NissanConnect infotainment system with a 5-inch display screen and smartphone app integration.

Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system, satellite radio, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, 4G Wi-Fi that lets you connect up to five devices, a rearview camera, a surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and an upgraded NissanConnect system with navigation, voice recognition, a 7-inch touch screen, and Siri Eyes Free.

The Titan comes with some nifty tech features, including a text messaging assistant that allows you to check and send texts more safely while on the move. The most notable standard feature is the NissanConnect infotainment system, which includes smartphone app integration.

The NissanConnect system includes some physical controls in addition to the touch screen, allowing you to adjust audio volume with a familiar knob instead of difficult-to-use touch-screen sliders. The controls are easily visible and reachable from the driver's seat, and they are logically arrayed. While the controls are user-friendly, you cannot help but notice that the infotainment display isn't quite as sharp or modern as the displays in competing systems.

The available features have a little something for everybody. The Rockford Fosgate audio system delivers quality sound, the DVD entertainment system is a great way to keep kids entertained on trips, and 4G Wi-Fi gives everyone internet access while on the go.

  • The infotainment system includes volume and tuning knobs, with other functions left to a large, easy-to-reach dashboard touch screen. Climate controls consist of a rotary temperature knob, but less-convenient repetitive-step pushbuttons for fan speed and mode." -- Consumer Guide
  • Controls for everything from trailer sway to basic audio knobs are easy to see and reach, though the infotainment display for navigation and other functions already risks being dated." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Up front is a very workable layout with a navigation screen up high, controls placed logically, and a steering-column-mounted shift lever, helping free up generous storage space." -- Automobile Magazine


The Crew Cab Titan features a 5-foot-7 bed, and there are a number of available bed features, including moveable tie-down cleats, removable in-bed storage boxes, a fold-down bumper step, a 110-volt power outlet, and cargo bed lights.

The moveable tie-downs – Nissan calls it the Utili-track system – make it incredibly easy to secure anything you might be hauling, from furniture to your motorcycle. The bumper step lets you climb into and out of the bed with ease, and the cargo lights drastically improve your ability to see around the bed after dark.

The available storage boxes slide in easily over the wheel wells and give you a great place to store your tools. They also have built-in drains, so if you're heading to a tailgate, just load them up with ice, and you're ready to rock. The in-bed power outlet is another nifty tailgate feature, letting you hook up a television or other appliances.

In-cabin storage is plentiful as well. There's a storage space under the rear seats, and the rear seats fold down to provide extra room. The large center console has enough space to store a laptop.

  • "In the bed, Nissan's Utili-track system makes tying down loads of different sizes straightforward." -- AutoWeek
  • "Although pickups are less about hauling cargo than they used to be, that didn't stop Nissan from offering some really neat features for the bed." -- Consumer Guide
  • "As a bonus: the center console is wide and deep enough to store a 15-inch laptop, and subsequently, I finally found a place to store my purse besides the footwell of the passenger seat." -- Forbes
