Even the taillights have a unique inverted C-design with a bit of vertical extension. Nissan has not failed to maintain an overall muscular look.
The Nissan Titan Concept 2018 came with 18-inch diameter tires with a massive 9.5-inch width. This is again following Raptor’s lines, but Nissan has remembered to redesign its spokes.

Also, Titan’s dashboard boasted three auxiliary gauges right at its center.
