Nissan Motorsports creates extreme Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck

Article by Christian A., on February 10, 2017

As it is, the new Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck is already a mean machine ready to take on anything on the road or even off it. But of course, a customer could always make the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck much meaner and more full of character – by availing of Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories as well as aftermarket components.

To show how customers could spice up the meaningful character of the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, the Japanese carmaker – through its Nissan Motorsports division -- is bringing the pickup truck to the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. However, this pickup truck – a 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab in Super Black finish -- has been configured and modified with Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories and available aftermarket parts. Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this modified Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X is also outfitted with a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system.

Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this tweaked pickup truck will be fully shown to the public at Chicago's McCormick Place from February 11 to 20, 2017.

Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories used on the new Motorsports Titan XD include Genuine Nissan Polished Exhaust Tip from Platinum Edition; Genuine Nissan TITAN Accessory Tailgate Guard; and Genuine Nissan TITAN Accessory Rear Bumper Step. Also featured on the Motorsports Titan XD are Genuine Nissan TITAN Sliding Bed Extender and Genuine Nissan TITAN Sliding Bed Divider. The Motorsports Titan XD rides on wheels from Method as wrapped in tires provided by Hankook.

The new Motorsports Titan XD also features off-the-shelf and prototype parts like a suspension system from ICON Vehicle Dynamics; front grille with camera mount and light bars from Rigid Industries; front bumper and rock rails from N-Fab; and fender flares and sport bar from EGR.

There were no modifications made to the pickup truck’s 5.0-liter Cummins V8 engine, which means it still delivers 310 hp of output and 555 lb-ft of torque. This 5.0-liter Cummins V8 engine is designed exclusively just for the Titan XD, and is boosted by a two-stage turbo for continuous power, ceramic glow plugs, and a lightweight compacted graphite iron (CGI) block. This V8 engine sends power to all four wheels through a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission from Aisin, allowing the new Motorsports Titan XD to offer up to 12,310 lbs. of towing capacity. This Aisin gearbox comes with a Tow/Haul mode. Thanks to a shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive system, a driver could shift between 2WD and 4WD instantaneously while moving at speeds of up to 60 mph.
