Nissan Unveils Titan XD Warrior Concept Truck

January 2016 News Trevor Mason Web Exclusive

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!

The rest of the world is beginning to wake up, but the sounds of an active manufacturing plant have been ramping up for hours. This small population town is the headquarters for fusion bumpers, a custom bumper manufacturer for nearly 15 years...
