The all-new 2016 TITAN XD Titan is now arriving in dealerships, but Nissan isn’t content to rest on its laurels. It’s already turning it into a hard-core full-blown off-roader, in concept anyway, with its new TITAN Warrior.
The automaker unveiled the concept Monday at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s a super-sized take on the truck to remind enthusiasts just what there is to love about the Titan. In Nissan’s words it’s an “adventure-ready, desert racing-inspired design on commercial-duty chassis with modified off-road suspension.”
Before you get too excited, though, we have to say that this truck probably won’t see production in its current form. However, Nissan says it’s where the truck could go in the future.
So where is that exactly? Well, it’s a bit taller and wider for one. This makes room for the 37-inch tall off-road tires on unique 18 x 9.5-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Futuristic armor that uses “stealthy, robotic” lines highlights the body. It starts at the front with the grille and headlights getting specially designed with custom LED lights. The rear adds custom LED lights and carbon fiber rear cab and tailgate spoilers. The final touch that pulls it all together is matte-gunmetal Thunder paint with Magma orange and black highlights.
The inside matches the rugged appearance on the outside. The idea was to give the vehicle a unique polished “chronograph” look and feel.
The seats are carbon-colored and trimmed in high-strength seat fabric with accents in Magma orange. The rest of the cabin materials are carbon fiber, polished chrome, and leather with Magma orange stitching. The steering wheel is custom-built, continuing the technical adventure theme, milled from one block of aluminum.
