Nissan and Habitat for Humanity Team Up to Produce the Nissan Ultimate Work TITAN

Nissan Ultimate Work TITAN | Vicksburg, MS

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:

  1. Off-road capability
  2. An interior akin to a mobile office
  3. 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 automaker has been helping Habitat in numerous ways since 2005, when it partnered with the organization to help in the relief effort following Hurricane Katrina and Rita. At the time, Nissan donated 50 trucks and mobilized employees to assist in building homes.

Over the last 10 years, Nissan has contributed more than $13 million to Habitat for Humanity in North America, donated an additional 78 vehicles, and logged more than 70,000 volunteer hours to help build 63 homes and serve 569 families across the country. Those are just some of the highlights from the company’s 10 years with Habitat for Humanity. Blackburn Nissan couldn’t be more proud to be part the efforts.
