Nissan presented its full-sized pickup Titan at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015 to take on Ford’s F-series of pickups. A redesigned model was always on the cards with Chevrolet, GMC, and RAM pickups. Recently, the Japanese car manufacturer unveiled the interesting concept version of its all-new 2017 Nissan Titan Warrior.
2017 Nissan Titan Warrior: Engine Options
Nothing can be said about the price of this pickup truck. However based on the competition and showing stark similarity to Ford F-150 Raptor; it may be marketed at around $48,000.
If it goes into production, Titan Warrior 2017 may come with options for both petrol and diesel engine trims.
- The diesel option may have a 5.0-liter V8 engine. Air suction may be compressor based with turbo-suction facility. This could be mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission system.
- The petrol unit may feature a 4.6-liter V8 engine. This may be combined with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Both these engines will be capable of generating a maximum power of around 400 HP. Maximum torque is also expected to be around the 400 lb-ft mark. A gasoline version is also on the cards which are being said to deliver more power but suffers from fuel economy issues. Still, in the concept stage, nothing can be said about Titan’s acceleration and EPA, but estimation can be made judging by its competition with Ford.
Exterior and Interior
Probably, the most attractive feature of 2017 Nissan Titan Warrior is its exterior design. Nissan will try to maintain similarity of its production unit to the concept unveiled. If it does, Titan will come with stunning interlocked C-shaped LED headlights. Taillights are also designed to complement its front counterpart, and the rear bumper will sport four protruding exhaust tips, two at each end.
Front fascia will have a muscular design with a massive front grille. It will sport Nissan exclusive three-bar design with the Nissan badge placed at the center. Fenders are massive and wider with space for 37-inch off-road tires. As standard, Nissan Titan Warrior 2017 will come with 18-inch diameter tires.
As for the interiors, Titan is set to have a modern dashboard. A set of three auxiliary gauges will be placed on the center of the dashboard and instrument cluster behind steering wheel will feature regular but styles gauges. Infotainment will come with control buttons and LCD display; however a touchscreen one may be available as an option.
Steering wheels may be draped in leatherette with aluminium spokes, and optional heating features may be available. Stiff competition from Ford may make Nissan provide power adjustable driver seats with heating features. All of Titan’s interiors will be made with carbon fiber along with polished chrome and leatherette finish.
Safety and Technology
Nissan will probably install all the standard latest technical features in its new Titan Warrior. After production, the pickup can be expected to come with:
- Advanced Traction Control that automatically sends barking power to wheels in case of wheel slip or adjacent car proximity detection.
- Roll stability controller synced with electronic stability controller to maintain vehicle stability in rugged terrains.
- Adaptive cruise control with blind spot monitoring system may also find its way into the Nissan Titan Warrior 2017.
