Nissan Project Titan is Ready to Conquer Alaska's Wilderness [VIDEO]
Nissan Project Titan is world's first crowd-sourced truck. Nissan has handed over the build to their Facebook fans and now the custom ultimate off-road machine is to take two heroic Wounded Warrior Project Alumni across Alaska. The project is based on a 2014 Nissan Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X. Fans have voted on 10 different areas of customization in order to assist the company to conquer Alaskan wilderness. There were three stages in the development of the vehicle. Along the way, fans have voted giving the company direction for almost every inch of the truck.
The exterior appearance of the Titan is adorned by a "Recon Titan" wrap, which is a digital-camouflage design that pays tribute to some of the most capable vehicles in the military. In addition, the fans have chosen a NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust system, which open up airflow on both ends of the vehicle's powertrain – the Endurance 5.6-liter V-8 engine.
On the Alaskan landscape, the Titan will be running on 18-inch Fuel Revolver D525 wheels wrapped in 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. During the night, it will illuminate its way via Bulldog LED Lighting, while the ARB Deluxe Bull Bar will deliver additional protection.
The interior of the vehicle has been also customized. The shifter and steering wheel have been refreshed, while the seats got new rugged Katzkin leather-wrap as well as Wounded Warrior Project embroidery. Coordinated tan stitching can be seen on the seats, steering wheel and door panels.
Fans have also added utility to the experience. Precisely, Project Titan tows a customized camping trailer which includes a camp-style kitchen, tent, water/fuel storage and a spare tire.
Currently, the truck has been fully prepared and already arrived in Alaska. Iraqi war veterans and Wounded Warrior Project Alumni David Guzman and Kevin McMahon will trek over mountains and through valleys in the ultimate Titan. Of course, Nissan will document the adventure, with a YouTube series set to launch this fall. If you want to follow the team's journey just visit Nissan's Trucks Facebook page.
Unfortunately, this custom Nissan Project Titan won't enter production or be available for purchase. Take a look at the videos released by the company which show a detailed notion of the three phases of building.
