There are far fewer combinations available than before, as the single-cab and Cummins diesel models have been dropped.

Prices for the Nissan Titan pickup are up by thousands across the board for 2020.

The 2020 model receives updates including refreshed styling, a new transmission, and more powerful engines.

It remains available in standard half-ton Titan and quasi-heavy-duty Titan XD forms.

After-sales of the Titan fell 38 percent in 2019, we can understand why Nissan is simplifying the lineup for the truck's 2020 update. But we're a bit perplexed as to why prices for the updated model are up by $860 to $5250, depending on trim level. Both Titan and Titan XD models continue to include S, SV, SL, Pro-4X, and Platinum Reserve trim levels, while there are fewer cab configurations and powertrain options than before. The single-cab model is gone, as is the Cummins turbodiesel 5.0-liter V-8 that was optional on the Titan XD.

Comparing equivalent 2020 Titan half-ton models to their 2019 counterparts, prices are up by as little as $860 for the Platinum Reserve crew cab but as much as $5250 for the SL crew-cab model. Due to the discontinuation of the single cab model, the cheapest 2020 Titan an S extended-cab model now costs $37,785, a $5500 increase from a 2019 single-cab model.

XD prices are up by between $1890 and $4690, and this version of the truck intended to fit between traditional half-ton and heavy-duty pickups can now only be had in crew-cab form and with four-wheel drive. It was previously available with rear-wheel drive and in single-cab and extended-cab configurations.

All Titans now come only with a naturally aspirated 5.6-liter V-8 gasoline engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission. It makes 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. The turbodiesel 5.0-liter V-8 from Cummins is no longer on the option sheet and we won't miss it, considering the poor experience we had with our diesel-powered long-term Titan XD.

2020 Titan models are arriving at Nissan dealerships starting now.
