    2020 Nissan Titan getting a light refresh inside and out

    The 2020 Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck has been spotted testing, and it appears to be getting a light refresh. This will be the first update since the truck was redesigned for the 2017 model year (2016 for the Titan XD). The updates are clearly mild, but some of them should be solid improvements.

    There isn't much we can see from the outside due to some very thorough camouflage. But from what we can see, changes will be quite subtle. The bumper and its main grille appear to be unchanged from the current model. The overall headlight, grille, taillight and tailgate designs are roughly the same, too. So we suspect changes will just be to grille designs and the look of the lighting elements.

    Good to see Nissan is not resting on it's laurels. Consistent and meaningful updates can only help to attract customers --- and hopefully improve the rest of the field.

    I hope GM won't just sit back and waiting for the wheels to fall off the current generation before making marked improvements.

    They're probably switching over to a full LED headlight...Not too sure what they're changing on the inside other than the HU.

    Nissan was extremely lazy its with product update cadence for first generation Titan. They let that truck go without a significant refresh for more than a decade.

    2017 was the first full year that the second generation Titan (both LD and XD) was available. It was also the first year this decade that Nissan managed to sell more than 50k Titans. Looks like Nissan is finally taking the full size pickup truck market semi-seriously now.

    Still ugly IMHO.
    That steering wheel is hideous. I drive a Murano and i get the same ugly vibe from it.
    The Titans look nice when lifted. The Nissan current infotainment unit in the Murano sucks balls, riddled with many bugs.

    If the cat/truck you purchased doesn't make you turn your head in the parking lot, you got the wrong vehicle.

    Too bad a refresh won't fix that hideous FWD looking wheel placement/bumper overhang.

    They really were lazy for the first generation. When it first debuted I remember being impressed with elements of the truck, but it got old looking quickly. Still, I was also impressed with their sinking the necessary R&D money into the project.

    I think they are, too. I know that a lot of people kind of took shots at Nissan for "borrowing" styling elements from other brands like Ford. When former RAM head Fred Diaz made his way to Nissan in 2013, a lot of people kind of "blamed" Fred for borrowing so much from competitors. Still the truck is selling better. Thanks to Fred, they cemented an engine alliance between Cummins and Nissan (after the former's engine partnership with FCA went south). Adding a refresh to the mix (that arguably makes it look more "unique" to Nissan) can only help set themselves apart from competitors.

    Nissan is finding out what Toyota found out in the full size truck market. Outside the big three, there is a cap to how many units one will sell, and.......................Know your place.

    Nice! Is that location close to Nissan's huge R&D and engineering complex in Farmington Hills, Michigan by any chance?

    Whenever I see a Tundra, I see a Toyota religious nut job. When I see a Titan, I say to myself, you know you wanted an F150/Ram/Silverado but couldn’t afford it...
