Nissan and Habitat for Humanity kit out a Titan for building stuff

Nissan and the housing organization Habitat for Humanity have gone to work together and created this Ultimate Work Titan concept truck. Based on a Titan XD Diesel Crew Cab, the truck is an off-road capable mobile office for construction work.

Having interviewed construction site supervisors and volunteers across USA, Nissan and Habitat came up with these basic requirements for their joint venture concept: First of all, the truck needed off-road capability, without question. Second, the interior should be able to transform into a mobile office, and third, the bed would need to feature easily accessed but lockable tool storage and space for ladders.

2018 Nissan Titan Drivers' Notes Review | As Honest As They Come

2018 Nissan Titan Drivers' Notes Review | As honest as they come

The 2018 Nissan Titan competes against the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra in one of the most hotly contested and profitable segments in the market. Sales are won and lost over stats like horsepower, torque and tow ratings. While the Titan was never a sales leader, the first-generation model had a decent but fading following over its 11-year run.

The current model debuted back in 2016 alongside the new not-quite-HD Nissan Titan XD. Our truck — a 4x4 S-trim King Cab — is about as base as they come. There are two options: $120 all-season floor mats and a rear-seat delete. The later subtracts $500 from the base price. There's not even a bed liner, a rarity for any truck these days. Still, it gives us a rather nice baseline for comparison and shows just how much something like the Pro-4X trim adds.

Nissan Smokin' Titan Is Custom Made For Bbq Lovers

Nissan Smokin' Titan is custom made for BBQ lovers

Remember those Plymouth Prowler trailers seemingly made out of the rear end of a Prowler? While those were a neat niche thing – much like the Prowler itself – they didn't really serve any other purpose than to double the Prowler's hauling capacity. If you want something actually useable, done in a somewhat similar fashion, the Nissan Smokin' Titan is your thing.

Describing it as the dream project vehicle for tailgating and barbequing enthusiasts, Nissan has created a mobile BBQ station out of a 2018 Titan XD Gas King Cab. The Smokin' Titan was created by removing the truck's factory bed and mounting that to a B&S custom trailer that's hooked up to the truck itself.
