“The package, which includes high-capacity, heavy-duty front springs, will be available this fall for use with a range of commercial and personal snow plows from five leading snow plow manufacturers: Boss, Fisher, Meyer, SnowEx and Western,” according to Nissan. “The Snow Plow Prep Package replaces the stock front springs with a higher capacity design, which increases front gross axle weight rating (GAWR) capacity by 575 pounds (from 4,325 pounds to 4,900 pounds). This allows fitment of snowplows up to 786 pounds (TITAN XD Gas Crew Cab S grade).”

All Titan XD trims (Single Cab, Crew Cab, and King Cab) that sport the 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine, which generates 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque, can take advantage of the Snow Plow Prep Package’s strong assistance.

“Following recent years with greater than average snowfall, experts are predicting a wild winter season again this year, meaning there should be plenty of opportunities for individual and fleet snow plow business operators,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc. “Get your new TITAN XD ready this fall… and let it snow!”

According to Nissan, the Nissan Titan XD is engineered with a “heavy-duty, highly stable suspension design” giving drivers a strong grip on the road, even in difficult conditions.
