Nissan has a proud history of working with Habitat for Humanity. Earlier this year, Nissan announced that the partnership it shares with Habitat for Humanity had successfully reached a whole new dimension. Nissan and Habitat for Humanity worked together to produce the Nissan Ultimate Work TITAN.
The Ultimate Work TITAN is the latest in a series of custom vehicles built by Nissan for its Calling All TITANs campaign. The truck, based upon a Nissan TITAN XD Diesel Crew Cab Midnight Edition, was tailor-made for Habitat for Humanity’s workers.
To determine what this custom pickup truck should include, Nissan and Habitat for Humanity spent time talking to the latter’s worksite supervisors and volunteers. Those workers noted three things the custom TITAN should possess:
An interior akin to a mobile office
A bed filled with useful tools
The decision to use the TITAN XD Diesel Crew Cab Midnight Edition as a base for the custom TITAN model certainly addressed that first requirement, although Nissan went the extra mile by adding ICON Alloys REBOUND wheels and other exterior features to the truck. To make the TITAN cabin feel more like an indoor office, Nissan included a 13-inch laptop and a backseat computer storage space for said laptop. Finally, the appropriate tools, including a full-size ladder, were added to the bed and roof of the custom pickup truck.
Since 2005, Nissan has donated 150 trucks and $16.9 million to Habitat for Humanity. Here at Blackburn Nissan, we are proud to represent an automaker that does so much to give back to the community.
The 2017 Titan King Cab is causing quite a stir, offering a slot between the Single Cab and Crew Cab models. Like many similar cab configurations, the King Cab comes with a hinge in the rear to allow the doors to swing 170 degrees for easy access.
According to Motor Trend, the King Cab is designed to meet the needs of customers looking for added space. One unique option is the King Cab configuration that allows you to get rid of the rear seat and replace it with a flat floor. This provides secure storage inside the cab, a feature that you won’t find on competitors.
“The affordable premium pickup has been around for only 13 years, but it’s well-equipped to challenge [competitors],” said Chris Constantine at The Drive. “Now the Titan and Titan XD will get a King Cab version for those who want a middle ground between the massive Crew Cab and a Regular Cab.”
The Titan and Titan XD come with a standard 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine that gets up to 390 horsepower, though you can also opt for a 5.0-liter Cummins® turbo diesel as well. Promising added space and impressive power, the Nissan Titan is great as a work truck. At Blackburn Nissan, we couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming King Cab.
When consumers can’t decide what to buy, they turn to the Internet and professional reviews for help, especially when it’s for a vehicle that’s a little out of the ordinary. When it comes to pickup trucks, the go-to is typically an American brand, but iTech Post shook up expectations a little bit when its Nissan Titan review expressed all-around praise for the Japanese pickup, which showcased everything from family-friendly comfort to top-of-the-line power.
The 2017 Nissan Titan offers a Crew Cab model with available Zero Gravity seats for optimized comfort, allowing for spacious interiors that can haul the whole family. Additionally, tons of storage and cargo space in the cabin, under the seats, and in a cargo organizer in the truck bed allow for additional room. The 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine cranks out 390 horsepower matched to a seven-speed transmission for a smooth performance and heavy-lifting.
If you’re looking for a pickup truck that veers away from the mainstream market but still preserves the bold, modern attitude of a great truck, along with all of the versatile configurations and features that can accommodate a family, iTech Post’s Nissan Titan review promises both of these. There’s also plenty of innovative capability engineered into the 2017 Titan’s powertrain, so make sure you give it a look if you’re in the market for a new truck.
The new 2016 Nissan Titan XD is ready to make a serious impact in the pickup truck world. Big changes and small changes make the Titan a standout this year.
The biggest development in the new Titan is the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 engine, a first for the Titan. It’s turbocharged, with an output of 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque.
Not only this, but the full-size pickup was also named the “Truck of Texas” by the Texas Auto Writers Association in its annual 2015 Texas Truck Rodeo. This was the competition’s top award; the Titan XD also earned the Luxury Pickup Truck of Texas, Off-Road Pickup Truck of Texas, and Best Powertrain awards.
The Titan XD has a lot to brag about. In addition to taking home these awards, it has some great features that make it truly amazing. Innovative available technologies like the Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and Trailer Sway Control help you utilize the Titan XD’s potential while feeling comfortable and in control.
The Wounded Warrior Project, which has provided support to injured soldiers and their families for over a decade, announced on Monday, June 22nd that Nissan will be the WWP’s official automotive partner.
Nissan and the Wounded Warrior Project have a history of collaborating with each other, including the #WithDad campaign on YouTube, for which Nissan donated $1 million in support of the WWP, and the “Project Titan” short film, which followed the adventures of two wounded veterans through Alaska in a modified Nissan Titan truck.
Now that Nissan is the official Automotive Partner of Wounded Warrior Project, Nissan dealers across the US will take part in raising money and awareness about the Wounded Warrior Project. The dealer that raises the most money will be invited as Nissan’s guest to the annual Courage Awards and Benefits Dinner.
Nissan executive Fred Diaz promised that 100% of the money raised will be given to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Blackburn Nissan is thrilled to be part of a company so dedicated to serving the needs of our nation’s heroes, and we can’t wait to see how this partnership progresses.
There’s a lot to love about the handsome, rugged, and powerful 2016 Nissan Titan HD–but the thing that may attract the most buyers is its classification (or lack thereof). Thanks to the Titan’s 5.0L V8 Cummins engine that puts out 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque, and a steel frame that’s more powerful than most ½-ton models, the XD technically falls somewhere between ½-ton and ¾-ton classifications.
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD boasts the efficiency of a diesel engine, but maintains the power to tow a massive 12,000 pounds, making it the best of both worlds. According to trucktrend.com, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD’s classification falls somewhere between a V8 gas-powered ½-ton and a diesel-powered ¾-ton, offering a completely new option for truck enthusiasts looking for efficiency and power, not one or the other.
Add to the XD’s power and efficiency a rugged, athletic design, and a modern, comfortable, and spacious interior, and you have a workhorse of a pickup that can also handle a daily commute and long family road trips without breaking the bank.
Here at Blackburn Nissan, we can’t wait to get our hands on the 2016 Nissan Titan XD. Look for more details, including official fuel economy numbers and pricing, to be released later this year!
If the new Nissan Titan were your friend, it wouldn’t be the kind of friend to suggest you sit on the couch all night and watch an entire season of The Walking Dead. Yes, those kinds of friends are cool, but the Titan would be friend who convinces you to rock climb, build a house, and get outside!
The Titan hasn’t been redesigned since 2003 and this time around, it’s ready to play and ready to work. Nissan unveiled the new Titan, with its XD Crew Cab, at the Detroit Auto Show. In this form, it can seat up six passengers.
Nissan was proud to show off the 5.0-liter Cummins diesel powertrain, lending the Titan a total of 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque. These are the kind of numbers that will serve you well for a trip to the lake or to the lumberyard.
Making it a veritably modern truck, the redesigned Nissan Titan comes outfitted with a host of safety features such as “surround-view camera system, blind-spot warning, and moving-object detection,” according to Consumer Reports. We at Blackburn Nissan can’t wait to take a new Titan out for a spin!
We at Blackburn Nissan have great news: the Titan is back and better than ever. Nissan recently debuted its new lineup of next-generation full-sized pickups. Showcasing rugged design, impressive capability, and much improved efficiency, the Nissan engineers didn’t hold back.
The 2016 Nissan Titan lineup will consist of several new cab, bed, powertrain, and model configurations such as the Titan Crew Cab and Titan King Cab, as well as the 4×4 and 4×2 models. Engines range from V8 and V6 gasoline and diesel engines. According to Nissan, the new 5.0-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel is also available.
“The full-size pickup segment in North America is a market where Nissan sees an unmet need–the towing and hauling power of a heavy-duty with the drivability and comfort of a light-duty,” said Fred Diaz, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing. “Nissan is coming back into the market full-force with this new Titan XD, which does just that. We think that full-size truck buyers are going to take notice.”
The new lineup will feature the best in towing, utility, and convenience, such as RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides, Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD), Trailer Light Check system, and Blind Spot Warning. With this new technology, rugged design, and impressive powertrains, the new Titan is putting other pickups to shame.
