Nissan unveiled the Titan Warrior concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and the public loved it. Now the company is listening to the masses and is is hinting that the Warrior could become a production vehicle.
The Titan Warrior concept is based on the Titan XD. It features an aggressive exterior with aluminum skid plates, extended fender flares, and 18-inch alloy wheels with massive 37-inch off-road tires.Speaking with Automotive News, Nissan North America's Director of Product Planning for trucks and SUVs said the concept is "more than a design exercise." Rich Miller went on to say "We're making a big commitment to the pickup segment with the new Titan, and we're also looking at where else we might take it now."
The Titan Warrior will compete against vehicles like the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 Rebel. These are off-road trucks that also occupy the top of each brand's range as a halo truck. The truck is also equipped with LED headlights, side steps, and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.
The concept runs on the same 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8 engine with 310 horsepower and 555 lb-ft of torque, but the Warrior might get some performance tweaks when it comes out.
