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!
Each year, at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Autoweek give awards for Best in Show, Most Significant, Most Fun, and Best Concept to the most exciting and innovative cars brought to the expo. This year, Nissan is the big winner, as the Nissan Sports Sedan Concept took home the Best Concept award. The Sports Sedan Concept distanced itself from its competition, the Kia G4 Stinger and the Toyota FT-1, through its revolutionary design, which provides a glimpse into the future design of all Nissan vehicles.
“The Sport Sedan Concept is an extremely important vehicle for Nissan because it demonstrates a new and energetic design direction that builds on Nissan’s legendary approach of applying sports car principles to a sedan,” said Nissan senior vice president and chief creative officer, Shiro Nakamura. “To receive this recognition reinforces that Nissan is headed full speed in the right direction, and this is only a sign of good things to come.”
Of course, some of those good things are already here, and you can come see them at Blackburn Nissan. We’ll take you for a test drive, talk to you about the Nissan lineup, and even chat about what the Sports Sedan Concept means for you. Come on in!
