Most of us want to do good things for our communities and lend a helping hand to those in need. In fact, according to a recent study, more than three-quarters of Americans believe companies should do more for their communities. Nissan believes this too and has a started a new campaign called “Calling All TITANS.” This campaign is focused on the everyday heroes all around us who use their pickup trucks for good.
Nissan has divided these heroes into three groups: TITANS of the Community, TITANS of the Neighborhood, and TITANS of the Outdoors. With this program, Nissan is donating $1 million to three organizations, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and the National Park Foundation.
“We have seen that TITAN customers are the kind of people who want to get the job done and leave their world better than they found it,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media, Nissan North America, Inc. “Be it conservation of the outdoors, contributions to local charities or simple acts of kindness, there is a natural desire among pickup truck owners to take action when help is needed.”
Thanks to its strong capabilities for towing, hauling, and driving, the Nissan TITAN is a great truck for making it through tough situations and driving conditions. Every time there is a disaster or a need in this country, you will see TITAN owners helping where they can.
The Nissan Titan is synonymous with rugged capabilities, and the new 2017 Titan Crew Cab is no exception. This model recently premiered at the New York International Auto Show, making this the first public showing of the half-ton pickup. With a powerful engine and a range of capabilities, drivers are bound to be impressed.
The 2017 Titan performance has been increased greatly, with a new 390 horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 that comes standard, according to Nissan. This may be paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, with available 4×4 and Adaptive Shift Control. An available Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel also recently premiered.
“The 2017 TITAN half-ton has the same aggressive style of the TITAN XD, but is about a foot shorter in wheelbase,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc., revealing the new truck during a press conference at the auto show. “They share the same cabs, but while it offers similar ruggedness and durability, the TITAN half-ton’s chassis is completely different than XD.”
The Titan also comes with a redesigned exterior that is a little over 228 inches, nearly a foot shorter than the larger Titan XD. We can’t wait to see these new pickups hit the streets sometime in the near future.
For those who have a lot of work to do, a full-size pickup truck is the perfect choice. And now, full-size pickup buyers will have another option with a new heavy-duty Nissan truck, the 2016 Titan XD.
Nissan showed off this new class-defining truck at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nissan says this truck will define a new segment and fits between the current heavy-duty and light-duty lineups.
The XD will be able to handle the workload of a heavy-duty truck with a maximum towing capacity of more than 12,000 pounds, but will be more fuel-efficient and have a price range closer to standard half-ton pickups.
One of the key elements to this new truck is the Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel that will offer 310 horsepower along with 555 lb-ft of torque. There will also be two other powertrain options to choose from.
“The new TITAN will deliver toughness, capability and quality,” said Carlos Ghosn, Nissan President and Chief Executive Officer, in a statement. “In addition to a range of cab configurations, the TITAN lineup will ultimately encompass multiple powertrain choices. These include an all-new workhorse gasoline V8, as well as our first V6 offering in this class.”
The 2016 Nissan Titan XD will be coming to Cronic Nissan by the end of this year.
