The Nissan Titan pick-up was first introduced in 2004 and after four years on the market Nissan will surely be looking to fend off a mid-life crisis for the model. Judging by this sole spyshot taken by the good folks at CarPix, we can confirm plans are well and truly in motion for a facelift for the 2009 model year.

Clearly by the heavy camoflage worn by this prototype the front end is set for some heavy modifications, but we expect more of the engineer's work to focus on the pick-up's powertrain. Power for the current model comes solely from a 317 horsepower 5.6 liter V8 petrol engine, but the engine range will be doubled for the facelift with the introduction of a diesel engine.

Further down the line Mitsubishi will introduce a successor for the Nissan Titan which is rumoured to be based on the platform of the 2009 Dodge Ram.
