The 2016 TITAN® XD — with its Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel — upped the ante in the extra-duty pickup class. Now, the TITAN Warrior Concept ups it again. With an unapologetically aggressive look, uncompromising off-road components, and inspiration taken directly from Nissan’s off-road racing heritage, the TITAN Warrior Concept takes the production version of the TITAN XD to its extreme.
Our designers called this new look “modern armor”. It’s got a stealthy, robotic quality and machine-like, sharp edges. The headlights have some menace to them, the fenders have been beefed up, and functional hood vents are there to cool the Cummins® Turbo Diesel. Up front, a burly skidplate is integrated into the grille and in back, a quad-tipped exhaust system not-so-quietly announces that the Warrior means business.
The TITAN Warrior Concept’s interior was built to handle the abuse that comes with serious off-roading, without compromising style or comfort. The seats are covered in a carbon-colored, high-strength fabric and trimmed with bold Magma Orange accents. Interior surface materials include carbon fiber, polished chrome, and leather with contrasting stitching, and the custom steering wheel is constructed out of a single block of aluminum.
The TITAN Warrior Concept is the extreme adventure version of the TITAN XD. It has the same fully-boxed ladder frame, Cummins® Turbo Diesel V8, and heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin transmission, but this one has a full custom off-road suspension. Up front it's got custom upper and lower control arms with performance ball joints and tie-rod extensions, and racing-style shocks with custom reservoir mounts. In back it has custom shocks and reservoir mounts, a lengthened prototype axle, and a custom sway bar.
