The Titan is for Nissan North America, but its aggressive front end shares plenty with the Patrol spied earlier in September.

Nissan USA has teased the facelift for its full-sized Titan pickup, giving us another look at the next-generation Patrol's design language in the process.

The teaser image, published above, shows the new truck will have squared-off daytime running lights with a 'C-shaped' signature derived from cars like the Qashqai. In the middle is a bluff grille, which has a larger interpretation of the brand's 'V-motion' design.

Although the Titan remains a North American-only proposition, the lighting signature and grille design share plenty with the Patrol spied early in September.

The V8 four-wheel drive Patrol hasn't been given a major styling tweak since launching in 2010, although its equipment levels have been adjusted locally.

Down back, the upright shape of the current Patrol appears to have carried over, albeit with redesigned tail-lights and detailing in the bumpers that give it a closer resemblance to the related Infiniti QX80.
