Nissan Takes 2017 Titan XD Pro-4X Pickup to the Extremes

The automaker shows the wild side of its Titan pickup

Nissan is bringing two project pickups at the Chicago Auto Show (February 11-20), both based on the 2017 Titan Pro-4X.

The first one is an extreme iteration put together by Nissan Motorsports using Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories, prototype components from specialized companies, as well as aftermarket accessories.

Based on the 2017 Titan XD Pro-4X, Nissan Motorsports' project features significant modifications designed to make it tackle extreme terrains. It has an off-road suspension system from ICON Vehicle Dynamics, front grille with camera mount and light bars from Rigid Industries, front bumper and rock rails from N-Fab, fender flares and sport bar from EGR, Method wheels, and Hankook tires.

The list of in-house accessories includes a polished exhaust tip, tailgate guard, rear bumper step, sliding bed extender, and sliding bed divider.

The 5.0-liter Cummins V8 turbodiesel engine remains untouched, delivering 310 hp and 555 lb-ft (752 Nm) of torque to all four wheels via a heavy-duty six-speed Aisin automatic transmission.

The second project truck is based on the 2017 Nissan Titan Pro-4X Crew Cab and was built using Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories and available aftermarket parts.

The idea behind the Super Black 2017 Titan Pro-4X Crew Cab project is to showcase the customizing potential of its half-ton pickup. The Nissan genuine components used to make this Titan stand out include a front grille with black inserts, black 20-inch wheels, step rails, LED fog lights, bed box, tailgate guard, and a rear bumper step.

Besides these readily-available genuine accessories, the truck features a Prototype Nissan Motorsports Lift Kit (1.5-inch front/1-inch rear), Prototype NISMO Titan Cat-back Exhaust System, Trifecta tonneau cover, and Hankook Dynapro ATM 285×55 R20 tires.

The engine is a stock 390 hp 5.6-liter Endurance V8, mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission that works with a four-wheel-drive system.
