Nissan Project Titan truck challenges rugged Alaskan terrain

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 12, 2014

The Nissan Project Titan truck is now prime and ready to take on the wilderness and treacherous terrain of Alaska. The crowd-sourced truck was built with the help of the Nissan Trucks Facebook fan base, who voted on 10 different areas of customization to help the Titan conquer Alaska's challenging terrain – some of the most treacherous in the world.

Fans voted at each stage along the way, giving Nissan direction for almost every inch of the truck. Based on a 2014 Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X, the 2014 Nissan Project Titan boasts of several features that allow it to brave the journey.

Bearing a "Recon Titan" wrap with a digital-camouflage design, the Nissan Project Titan truck feature a NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust system that opens up airflow on both ends of the truck’s Endurance 5.6-liter V-8 engine.

Enabling the truck to manage the perfidous Alaskan terrain are 18-inch Fuel Revolver D525 wheels wrapped in 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. Giving it the ability to tackle the darkness is Bulldog LED Lighting, and is protected by an ARB Deluxe Bull Bar.

Moving to the interior of the Nissan Project Titan truck, one can find a freshened shifter and steering wheel that provide a more comfortable drive. Its Katzkin leather-wrapped seats bear Project Titan and Wounded Warrior Project embroidery.

One can also find coordinated tan stitching on the seats, steering wheel and door panels. The Nissan Project Titan truck carries along an all-terrain camping trailer that contains a camp-style kitchen, tent, water/fuel storage and a spare tire. Piloting the truck are two Wounded Warrior Project Alumni -- David Guzman and Kevin McMahon. [source: Nissan]
