In simple terms, the Titan Warrior is proof that Nissan is fully capable of competing with the most rugged trucks coming from the United States.
Last week was the week of the auto shows with the Montreal and Detroit International Auto Shows happening basically at the same time. That means it was an opportunity for consumers to find out what is coming in terms of new vehicles in the next few months, as well as witness a few rather impressive concept vehicles.
Nissan is Ready for Everything
Case in point, the Nissan Titan and Nissan Rogue Warrior vehicles, two insanely extreme all-terrain vehicles designed to tackle just about anything you throw at them.
Let’s first have a look at the Nissan Titan Warrior, unveiled in the automotive capital of the world at the Detroit International Auto Show last week. In simple terms, the Titan Warrior is proof that Nissan is fully capable of competing with the most rugged trucks coming from the United States.
Featuring 37-inch tires and three inches higher, the Nissan Titan XD also features in-your-face design elements that truly make it stand out in a crowd. Nissan did not confirm they were going to produce the Titan XD, but if they do it will be powered by the same 5.0-liter V8 Cummins diesel unit that is found un the hood of the brand new Nissan Titan XD, which means owners will have 555 lb-ft of torque to play with, good enough for a towing capacity of 12 000 lbs.
Meet the Supercharged Rogue
The highlight of the Montreal International Auto Show, the Nissan Rogue Warrior, is not a vehicle that will make it to production, at least not right now, but this still managed to create quite a stir.
Take your basic Nissan Rogue, one of Canada’s most popular compact sport utility vehicles, and replace the wheels with heavy-duty snow tracks measuring 30"/76 cm in height and 48"/122 cm in length. The individual track width is 15"/38 cm.
"Nissan has a well-rounded suite of all-wheel drive crossover vehicles to master the toughest winter roads. In fact, Nissan's all-wheel drive (AWD) system adapts to road conditions 30 times faster than the blink of an eye," says Joni Paiva, president of Nissan Canada Inc. "The Rogue Warrior symbolizes the essence of our popular crossover and sport utility vehicle family, while also reminding show goers what Nissan is all about – being bold, pushing the limits, and exciting capability that's anchored in quality."
Even if it is not meant to be sold to consumers, the Rogue Warrior is not just a show car. It can reach 100 km/h, tackle just about any kind of snow, and scale a 45 degree slope. Its ground clearance is phenomenal, sitting at 58 centimeters.
