Dubbed as the bigger, bolder, and better version of the pick-up offering from Universal Motors Corporation (UMC), the new Nissan T3 pick-up consists of new exterior features such as a new standard roof rack that is guaranteed to carry loads of up to 55 pounds, the newly-designed 15" chrome alloy wheels, and the most obvious of them all, the muscular body claddings that complement the over fenders. The standard sprayed-on bed liner is also standard equipment so kiss your bed liner rust woes goodbye. A side step board is also present. The rear end is also a refreshing sight with new design tail lamps.

Interior-wise, the new T3 is beefed up with race-inspired 2-tone leather upholstery for all seats, a center console for that added comfort and extra storage, and a new Clarion head unit with MP3 player. All these are complemented by other first-in-its-class additions such as the rain sensing wiper system that automatically activates the wipers, and side mirrors equipped with red LED signal lights.

With all these new equipment, the Nissan Titanium T3 continues to be powered by dependable Nissan Diesel power plants. For the manual version, the TD27 engine still hauls, with 84 Hp and 176 Nm torque. For the automatic version, the QD32 3.2 liter diesel pulls the Frontier, with power and torque figures of 103 Hp and 216 Nm, respectively.
