Nissan Dresses Up New Titan for Winter

Pickups get sporty new look from Motorsports division.

Nissan Motorsports got its hands on a new Titan and turned it into the Pro-4X just in time for Chicago.

It’s winter and for many parts of the country that means a slew of outdoor activities and fortunately for Nissan Titan owners, the maker’s motorsports division has a load of new offerings designed to allow them to plunge right into their cold-weather fun.

The company is showing off those items on its new Titan, building modified display vehicles for the Chicago Auto Show. It marks the second year in a row that Nissan provided a “winterized” version of its vehicles. Last year, it showed off upgrades for its SUV line-up.

This year’s Titan models – the Super Black 2017 Titan PRO-4X Crew Cab and a Titan XD PRO-4X – are outfitted with Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories, along with available aftermarket parts.

The idea, once again, is to show how easy it is to give Titan a highly personalized appearance, as well as show off what the possibilities could be with a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system.

“We want to demonstrate to Titan  owners how they can transform their trucks using parts and accessories that can be readily available through their local Nissan dealers,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America Inc.

The 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show.

“And what better showcase for the modified Titan than in Chicago at the country’s largest auto show.”

Besides readily-available Nissan genuine components, among the long list of project modifications are a Prototype Nissan Motorsports Lift Kit (1.5-inch front/1-inch rear), Prototype Nismo Titan Cat-back Exhaust System, meaty Hankook Dynapro ATM 285x55R20 tires and Trifecta tonneau cover.

“The Titan XD, with its available Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine, is a powerful platform that calls out for customization,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America Inc.

“We’re pleased to offer Titan XD owners so many ways to personalize their vehicles and also excited more and more companies are supporting Titan with aftermarket parts and accessories.”

Besides a full array of Nissan Genuine components, companies that provided Nissan Motorsports with off-the-shelf and prototype parts includes ICON Vehicle Dynamics (suspension system), Rigid Industries (front grille with camera mount and light bars), as well as N-Fab (front bumper and rock rails), EGR (fender flares and sport bar), Method (wheels) and Hankook (tires).
