The special Titan XD is being donated to the Red Cross.
Typically when automakers reveal concepts, they preview new models that are still to come. But not Nissan. Not when it comes to its trucks. The Japanese automaker has been rolling out a series of show trucks to demonstrate just how extensively its trucks can be customized for specific purposes. And this is the latest.
Dubbed the Ultimate Service Titan, the big pickup has been prepared as a mobile response unit for the American Red Cross to use in South Florida. And to that end, the specially equipped Titan XD packs a wide range of enhancements.
The one-of-a-kind rescue platform is based on a Titan XD Diesel Crew Cab Midnight Edition features a lifted suspension to help it access flooded areas. It has an on-board solar power generator, first-aid equipment, refrigerated blood bank, even a small kitchen with stove, microwave... even the proverbial kitchen sink.
It also has a custom bumper and camper/office bed box, auxiliary lighting, a Warn Zeon Platinum 12S winch kit, heavy-duty off-road wheels and tires, and a 75-gallon fuel tank. "No matter the conditions, a Titan fights to do what it takes to help those in need," said Nissan's commercial-vehicle chief Fred DePerez.
"Built on the foundation of a rugged Titan XD Diesel – and with aftermarket accessories from some of the most reputable companies in the industry – the Ultimate Service Titan ensures that Titan of the Community are able to get anywhere, at any time, with the tools they need to get the job done."
The truck was unveiled at the Miami Beach Fire Department and will be on display at the Miami Auto Show until October 13, after which it will be donated to the Red Cross to help with its rescue and relief efforts in the region.
