Until recently, the Nissan Titan was your only option if you wanted a full-size, Japanese-brand truck.

It was a great honeymoon for Nissan, giving the company plenty of publicity because it looked like the Land of the Rising Sun was mounting a direct attack on the Home of the Free and the Brave. It was the perfect story line.

It still offers a lot of good features at a fair price, including some innovative things that are now being copied by other brands.

Now the Toyota Tundra has entered the fight, too, which could be catastrophic for the Titan for two reasons: One, the Tundra is a great truck, providing some tough competition for the aging Titan. And two, Nissan no longer gets the benefit of attention-getting headlines with Pearl Harbor overtones. All those have shifted to Toyota.

In any case, it's fair to say the Titan hasn't been as successful as Nissan had hoped, and the Tundra doesn't make things easier.

So, how is Nissan responding? By adding two new versions.

One is the Long Wheelbase (LWB), which -- guess what? -- has a longer wheelbase than the standard Titan. That enables it to have a eight-foot-long bed, the longest in its class, along with a huge, 37-gallon fuel tank.

It's fair to say the Titan hasn't been as successful as Nissan had hoped, and the Tundra doesn't make things easier.

The other new model is called the PRO-4X, which is designed for off-road driving. It has Rancho-brand shocks, a low gear ratio, extra skid plates and an electric locking rear differential. It also comes with a unique style, including white gauge faces, special interior treatment, and body-color exterior trim.

These two, distinctive trucks are designed to send a clear message. Nissan wants the Titan to be remembered for both hard work, as in the LWB, and play, as in the PRO-4X.

The PRO-4X is fairly pricey, starting at $31,980. The LWB is available at a variety of price points, though, starting at $24,800 with rear-wheel drive and topping out at $36,170 with four-wheel drive on a luxurious LE model.

The Titan continues to have some interesting features, including some that other manufacturers have recently started copying.
