The resulting concept car penned in La Jolla, California, features an unapologetic styling that explores future development possibilities for the freshly-launched Titan. The exhibit is called Nissan Titan Warrior Concept and features a Cummins V8 5.0-liter turbo diesel engine borrowed from the Titan XD.

While maintaining the wheelbase and length of the Titan XD Crew Cab, the Warrior Concept has a height of 81.5 inches and features 37-inch tall off-road tires. The vehicle’s body was widened by three inches on each side, adding up to a total of 86.6 inches. The alloy wheels themselves are dedicated to this task, having a size of 18x9.5 inches, and a dark matte finish.

Painted in a custom matte-gunmetal color dubbed “Thunder,” the Titan Warrior Concept features accents in “Magma Orange,” and black highlights. The resulting exhibit is a car that looks ready to go off-roading and actually win a race or two.

However, the interior isn’t like the one of a Baja trophy truck, but that of a dependable daily-driver with all the comfort features expected of a modern vehicle. The customized work continues on the interior, where the designers milled the steering wheel from a block of aluminum and modified certain trim elements, along with other features.

The designers at Nissan’s Californian studio wanted to make a car for those who appreciate something that's not mundane and things that others don’t have. This endeavor was inspired by Project Titan, a crowd-sourced customization project for the first-generation Nissan Titan. The Project Titan sent two veterans of the US military in a unique adventure in Alaska.

The design team responsible for the new Titan Warrior Concept stated that they were also inspired by the brand’s off-road heritage, that includes participations in Baja and Paris-Dakar races.
