Nissan Sets Up “Project Basecamp” at Overland Expo 2017 WEST with a Custom Titan XD Pickup on Point
— Nissan (@Nissan) May 13, 2017
We at Nissan of Omaha know you’ve always wanted an off-road powerhouse to go the extra mile out from Omaha and nearby, tacking into whatever rough terrain and worse weather Mother Nature can throw at you. And if the Overland Expo 2017 WEST event that took place May 12 through May 14 at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, AZ is any indication of prospects, the opportunity may soon present for drivers from Council Bluffs, Bellevue, Lincoln, Blair, and beyond.
At an overlanding extravaganza replete with training classes, demos, and an expansive camping, outdoor, vehicle and motorcycle equipment trade show, Nissan unveiled a specially built Titan XD PRO-4X pickup designed to be self-sustaining for backcountry treks. And the eponymous monster was more than just the display of the Nissan commitment to quality evinced by a heavy duty commercial truck ladder frame, innovative bed, and fully loaded 5-passenger cabin.
Its concept was meant to be that of a project vehicle for overlanding enthusiasts, and with the truck’s show of more than 60 aftermarket parts and accessories from top-tier overlanding-field manufacturers, including Hellwig, Icon Vehicle Dynamics, Rhino Rack, Rigid Industries, Warm Winch, Lead NAV, Goal Zero and more, we of Nissan enthusiasm can see why. Striking mods included a 3-inch lift kit to make Titan XD PRO-4X tower above the competition, a bed cage, stargazer tent, light bar and sprawling 35-inch tires to own road and unbeaten path alike.
And when one factors in the custom Nissan Titan XD’s Cummins 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel engine, pushing a high-performance 310 horsepower with help from 555 pound-feet of outback-crushing torque, one gets more than a sense of that of which a personalized Nissan pickup is capable.
The Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X Project Basecamp road warrior is set to make appearances this spring and summer at an array of outdoor adventure shows and exhibitions, so keep an eye out for more exciting developments.
