Nissan has given the world its first look at their latest concept truck: the Nissan Titan XD Warrior. Not content to rest on their laurels after introducing the standard Titan XD with a 5.0L V8 Cummins turbodiesel, they’ve created something that will give stuff like the Ford Raptor a run for their money.
With the Titan XD as the base, Nissan has added a long-travel suspension to accommodate custom 18-inch wheels wrapped in 37-inch tires. Those 3 inches of lift and extended track width of 86.6 inches greatly enhances the Warrior’s off-roading skills. The front suspension has custom upper and lower control arms, while the rear leaf-spring suspension was raised with blocks to keep the same payload capacity of the standard XD. Handling and comfort have been improved by the addition of internal-bypass shocks.
As for the exterior, well, take a look for yourself. Lots of angles, which you may or may not like, but I think it looks fantastic. They also added widened fenders and bedsides, as well as a big front skidplate and four-tipped exhaust in the rear bumper. As you can see, they added custom LED housings above the windshield, which should come in handy with all the off-road driving this guy’s going to be doing.
The interior got just as much attention as everything else, with carbon-colored high-strength seat fabric, big auxiliary switches, and a billet aluminum steering wheel. One really neat touch is an integrated temperature-controlled drink container in the center console. That’s better than a Thermos!
There’s no word on when (or even IF) this thing goes on sale. Keep your fingers crossed that Nissan deems it worthy for us mere mortals!
