[PHOTOS] Nissan Makes Powerful Statement in Chicago with Customized Titan Pickup Trucks
Big, powerful, and proficient, the modified Nissan trucks on display at the Chicago Auto Show have all of the ingredients you need to make a truck enthusiast’s jaw drop.
The first of those trucks is the 2017 Titan XD Pro-4X. This modified Titan XD features a vast assortment of Nissan Genuine components, including a rear bumper guard, bed divider, tailgate guard, bed extender, and polished exhaust tip from the Platinum Edition. In addition, the Titan XD Pro-4X comes equipped with an aftermarket suspension system, tires, wheels, fender flares, sport bar, rock rail, front bumper, and front grille with camera mount and light bars.
Powered by a Cummins 5.0-liter turbo-diesel engine, this new Titan XD display vehicle is good for 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque. That robust engine comes paired with a heavy-duty six-speed Aisin transmission, sending power to all four wheels.
“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.”
The other customized Nissan truck being displayed in Chicago is the Super Black 2017 Titan PRO-4X project truck. This one-off truck is meant to showcase the Titan’s high-level of customization, coming with features like a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system, as well as Nissan Genuine Accessory 20-inch wheels and LED fog lights.
The project truck differentiates itself from the HD model thanks to a gasoline-powered 5.6-liter V8 engine good for 390 horsepower. The project truck also comes with a seven-speed automatic gearbox and Trifecta tonneau cover.
“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 Diaz. “And what better showcase for the modified Titan than in Chicago at the country’s largest auto show.”
