Besides the amazing name, the 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior will also have amazing performances. This is a concept which was seen on Detroit Auto Show back in 2016. Nissan decided to build this truck and to launch it soon. It is one of a kind and it is a bit special different vehicle.
2018 Nissan Titan Warrior will be developed by NISMO
You may know that NISMO is a special division which tunes up and improves Nissan cars. Usually, they are in charge of sports cars or vehicles which must provide superb performances. 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior will actually be mostly developed by the division in question. This is a good thing, meaning that we will get stunning performances in any main aspect.
NISMO is still focused on high top speed, great handling, and powerful engines, but Nissan revealed that Titan Warrior will be more than just a powerful truck. It should provide practicality, meet heavy-duty demands and it must be capable of proper off-roading. In other words, the 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior will be a rival to the mighty Ford Raptor.
Differences between the concept and actual truck
It is common to see one form of a car as a concept, but a completely different once it reaches production. 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior won’t share this path. In essence, it is an identical car as the concept car we saw in 2016. We still get stunning looks and futuristic design.
The main difference is in the weight. The concept suggested this was going to be a heavy truck, but the actual model is actually a light-weight vehicle. Nissan made this possible using carbon fiber for making most panels and most parts of the body. The end result is lightweight, high-performance truck with superb handling and off-road capabilities. Just to add, the suspension is likely to be different than the concept model had as well. It is going to be more optimized for drives across tough terrains. The engine is going to be changed obviously, due to lower weight.
LED rail lighting and 19-inch wheels are going to be standard on the 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior. Tires are 37-inch and they are fully capable of off-roading, which can be seen.
Engine and transmission
The concept of 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior was powered by a 5.0L engine. At Nissan, decided that this engine doesn’t suit very well to the car and it should be replaced. As such, the car will be powered by a 3.8L, V6 engine. The code name for this power plant is VR38DETT and we are expecting a lot of it. 545HP is a great proof of what the truck will be capable of. 463 pound-feet of torque is present as well and they make the entire car better to drive.
Transmission is new and it is going to be 7-gear automatic. The power will be sent to all 4 wheels. There are no plenty of details regarding this matter! We can expect lock differential and special low-ration optimization of some kind, but still, it is only speculation. Fuel consumption is 13/19mpg and obviously, it isn’t great, but this is a high-performance truck, rather than an ordinary commercial vehicle.
There are some rumors that 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior will be available with two engines. The first is the one we mentioned and the second is a 5.7L unit. Still, there is no precise information regarding this claim.
The total weight of the car is 8.500 pounds. Paired with the powerful engines, a towing capacity is impressive 12.000-13.500 pounds! Add performances and handling and you get an amazing vehicle for most applications you have in mind.
Main design features of the exterior
Obviously, the main advantage and the one which is going to be noticed the first is the exterior design. 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior looks futuristic and sophisticated. We noticed large bumpers, which are incorporated to absorb the impacts and to increase aerodynamics. LED lights are massive and improved by roof lights as well. Titan logo and massive hood with vents allow the better engine cooling and make the design more appealing.
A skid-plate is implemented for protecting the truck, which is mandatory in vehicles made for these purposes. At the back, we get 4 exhaust pipes, incorporated into the bumper itself.
Massive tires and wheels have been mentioned above. They are important for off-roading and they make it possible to drive across impossible terrains. The bottom line is that 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior looks and it is like a high-performance truck. An interesting addition is that the front part of it is designed to look like a robot head! At least some individuals believe in that.
Interior of 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior
Inside a cabin, you can expect a combination of style, comfort, and modern features. The leather is mandatory, so is the chrome. As a matter of fact, we can expect plenty of chromed details and parts. Overall, the design of the cabin is better than we were able to see on other trucks. Large HD screen in the middle console is just right and the graphics are obviously superb.
The cabin provides more space than most people will actually need. Seats are developed to maintain their form and keep passengers safe and sound while the truck is jumping across tough terrains. Carbon fiber is present as well but in a small amount. We will probably see just a few elements made from this material. Other than that, all is high-quality plastics, metal, leather, and chrome.
Three, small dials will be added to the central console. They will be responsible for displaying onto regarding turbo boost and etc. Correspondingly is the start engine switch is similar to the ones hyper cars have. We must add that the lever for changing gears behind the steering wheel is a heavy-duty component. It is massive and larger than competitive models have. Of course, this was chosen in order to allow for the driver’s simplicity and greater practicality while driving across impossible terrains.
The headrest between the seats is massive as well. It is useful when you want to rest your hand while driving. Open it and you will have space for belongings. There are some rumors the car will have a small refrigerator here, but there is no official confirmation.
Release date and the price of 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior
2018 Nissan Titan Warrior comes on the market in the autumn of 2017. The price will likely start at $30.000, but most buyers will prefer more expensive versions. On the other hand, the premium car will cost $60.000. These are not confirmed prices and there are still plenty of information we need. At the moment, Nissan hasn’t revealed the details about the features and optional extras.
The 2018 Nissan Titan Warrior is all except an ordinary truck. The overall design is one of the best at the moment and it looks completely futuristic. In many ways, it looks better than Ford Raptor, but it is a matter of taste after all. Performances are incredibly high and at the moment some of the highest you can get from a truck. Powerful engine and superb off-road capabilities are likely to be the main advantages and the best things the truck has to offer.
