Nissan Titan SL: $41,500

The Nissan Titan's top-end trim level is the leather-trimmed SL.

Standard features include rear obstacle detection, heated front seats and power adjustable pedals. Navigation and a sunroof are optional (though they're included in many rival models). The Titan SL is only offered as a crew cab and, like other Titan models, only with a 317-hp 5.6-liter V8.
