Nissan has unveiled the ultimate Titan for anyone that likes to drive to remote locations in the backcountry. Nissan has unveiled a unique 2017 Titan XD PRO-4X called “Project Basecamp” that has been designed for overlanding enthusiasts.
“Overlanding is an exciting form of outdoor adventuring, taking participants into sometimes extreme terrain and climate conditions,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. “We’re using the Project Basecamp to showcase the Titan XD PRO-4X model’s potential as the perfect platform for truck owners thinking of taking their adventures to the next level.”
To create the Project Basecamp, Nissan started with the diesel powered Titan XD PRO-4X and then added more than 60 aftermarket parts and accessories to create an essentially self-contained, self-sustaining “basecamp” for exploring the backcountry.
To help it tackle tough terrain, the Project Basecamp rides on off-road-traction 35×12.50×17 tires with 17-inch beadlock aluminum-alloy wheels. A special 3-inch lift kit provides extra tire clearance at each corner, and the suspension was given an extra level of bulletproofing with air springs and an air-leveling compressor.
The list of overlander survival essentials, includes a Leitner Designs Overland bed cage, Rhino Rack Pioneer rack system and Foxwing Awning, CVT Tents Mt. Rainier Stargazer tent and vestibule, and Black Forest portable Fridge Freezer, along with water canisters and fuel packs from Daystar, shovels and an emergency kit from ARB.
The Project Basecamp will debut this weekend at the Overland Expo 2017 WEST at Fort Tuthill County Park in Flagstaff, Arizona.
