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 Maxima’s interior is anchored by its fighter jet-inspired cockpit. Wards cited the Maxima’s expert craftsmanship, sophisticated color scheme, and the accents to the trim and seating surfaces.47 nominees were chosen as finalists for the 10 Best List, among them the Nissan Altima and TITAN.
The 10 Best Interiors List is chosen by a panel of eight judges from WardsAuto who test each vehicle not just for looks but for comfort, ergonomics, the driver information display, the materials used, and safety. They also consider the value of the car in relation to the quality of the interior.
The winners will be honored at the WardsAuto Interiors Conference, which will take place on May 11th in Detroit.
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.
