Nissan’s crowdsourced Project Titan is ready to tackle Alaska

We will never forget those who lost their lives on this day 12 years ago. Thank you to those who have protected us, who do protect us and those who will.

We will always remember this day in our history. We would like to take a moment to remember those that have lost their lives or have been affected by the tragedy that occurred on this day 12 years ago. We would like to thank those who put their lives on the line every day for our freedom.

Alaska still offers Americans the chance to really experience the wilderness, and Nissan is challenging its Titan pickup to its offroad extremes with a little help from its fans. After crowdsourcing a heap of mods, the company is handing it over to two Wounded Warrior Project Alumni to do their worst in the backcountry to see what the truck can do.

Nissan last experimented with the crowdsourcing idea on its Project 370Z in 2012 but might have taken things even further this time. For Project Titan, the automaker let fans vote on 10 different areas to customize on a 2014 Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X. To fit the rugged look, the company covered it up with a custom digital-camouflage wrap with a Wounded Warrior Project emblem and even outfitted its all-terrain camping trailer in a similar scheme. An LED lighting rig was also added to the new bull bar and roof rack to brighten the night. For a just little more grunt, the 5.6-liter V8 was outfitted with a Nismo cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust, and to keep from getting stuck, the pickup got an upgraded suspension with more travel and 18-inch wheels with 35-inch Nitto offroad tires. The interior was also slightly revised with big GPS system and custom embroidered seats.

Now, it’s time to see if the truck’s mods can handle what the Alaskan wilderness can throw at it. The two Wounded Warrior Project Alumni are just starting their expedition and are expecting snow on the way. You can follow their journey on Nissan Trucks’ Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/nissantrucks).
