According to Nissan, they are exploring new territory where TITAN might go in the future with the concept.
“Truck buyers have a seemingly insatiable appetite for more content and more unique offerings,” said José Muñoz, executive vice president, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and chairman, Nissan North America, Inc., as he revealed the TITAN Warrior Concept.
“Even though our all-new 2016 TITAN XD just started arriving at Nissan dealers nationwide last month, we are already exploring new territory where TITAN might go in the future.”
At the Detroit auto show the Nissan IDS Concept also made an appearance in the Nissan display. The concept was a star at the Tokyo Motor Show due to its autonomous driving vehicle capabilities. The IDS Concept embodies Nissan's vision of the future of autonomous driving.
