“For the third year in a row, TAWA journalists have recognized the new TITAN’s tremendous value that sets the benchmark,” said Nic Phillips, president of TAWA. “The standard V8 engine and longest bumper-to-bumper warranty adds up to a package that should be on every Texan’s short list.”

According to Nissan, the 2018 Nissan Titan Midnight Edition’s exterior is distinct on the Crew Cab SL and SV trims (4×4 and 4×2 models) with available features such as: black fog light finishers, body color front grille with dark insert, exclusive dark headlights, black exterior badging, 20-inch black painted aluminum-alloy wheels, Midnight Edition floor mats, and black outside door handles and rearview mirrors. The 2018 Nissan Titan XD Midnight Edition Crew Cab SL and SV (grade 4×4) features black fender louvers and is powered by an impressive Cummins® 5.0-liter V8 turbo diesel engine.

The Texas Truck Rodeo is a featured event for respected automotive journalists as an opportunity to evaluate how select vehicles handle off- and on-road challenges. The rodeo is set at Dripping Springs, Texas, at the Longhorn River Ranch, which spans 1,632 acres.

Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc., stated “The Rodeo is a very unique event that allows journalists to test many vehicles back-to-back in a way they would not have been able to otherwise. It makes the honor even greater knowing our products rose to the top. Thanks to the members of TAWA for all of their hard work on this event.”
