Nissan’s Titan made the spotlights in 2016 as the Titan XD Diesel is set to hit Dealership inventory’s this January! We’ve seen huge interest in from Nissan fans across New Mexico as this beast of a truck becomes available for the Albuquerque market. The Titan XD will offer a more affordable segment to the diesel truck market where heavy duty attitude will meet half ton pickup territory. Since Melloy Nissan went public on social media about the release date of the Titan XD on social media we’ve had a unprecedented surge of customers come to Melloy Nissan requiring information on the Titan HD Diesel and the unleaded version that’s set to be available later in 2016. I’ve seen/driven this truck and there are so many reasons to be excited about the future of the Nissan Titan!
With this exciting redesign Nissan re-imagined the Nissan Titan in all segments of the market – including the market for the off-road enthusiast. I’m happy to say that Titan and Frontier are not only venturing into the diesel market, but also stepping boldly into Ford Raptor, and Toyota’s Trd Pro Market with a concept that will redefine Nissan’s off-road heritage in our truck market. Meet the Nissan Titan Warrior Concept!
As we can see from these pictures the Nissan Titan Warrior concept looks to be the perfect rival for Ford’s 2017 F-150 Raptor! And unfortunately for Toyota it puts the already awkward Toyota TRD Pro to shame from an aggressive off-road point of view. The Nissan Titan Warrior XD will feature a Cummins 5.0L diesel engine, and no doubt an unleaded version would also be available!
Even though the Titan Warrior is just a concept there is no doubt in my mind that Nissan has payed attention to the high demand for performance trucks across the market, and the Nissan Titan Warrior goes hand in hand with redesigning the Titan from the ground up. I do believe Nissan has some big plans for the Nissan Titan and Nissan Frontier in the Performance segment, and soon after the release of the Non Diesel version of the Titan XD in late 2016, this performance version will ultimately become a reality.
“Truck buyers have a seemingly insatiable appetite for more content and more unique offerings,” said José Muñoz, executive vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and chairman, Nissan North America, Inc. “Even though our all-new 2016 TITAN XD just started arriving at Nissan dealers nationwide last month, we are already exploring new territory where TITAN might go in the future.”
