Project Titan Heads to Alaska

2014 Nissan TitanThe Project Titan truck, a customized 2014 Nissan Titan, has headed to Alaska with two Wounded Warriors for a once-in-a-lifetime Alaskan adventure. Facebook fans voted on which features should be included in each stage of the truck’s build. Project Titan began with a 2014 Titan crew cab Pro-4X, a truck known for its power, versatility, and towing capacity, and fitted it with extra off-road equipment. All of us at Knight Nissan in Swift Current, SK are cheering them on — keep reading for more information about Project Titan and an overview of the 2014 Nissan Titan.

A Look at the Project Titan Truck

Wounded Warrior alumni David Guzman and Kevin McMahon are tackling Alaska’s terrain in the super-equipped 2014 Titan. Additions to the truck, as chosen by Facebook fans, upgrade the suspension, performance, traction, and navigation capabilities, and include:

  • The Project Titan truck has a NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust for improved performance.
  • A lift kit and front suspension kit from PRG increases ground clearance, while the AirLift rear airbag setup ensures the truck maintains its equilibrium.
  • 18-inch Fuel Revolver D525 wheels and 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires ensure lateral grip for conquering deep mud.
  • A Lowrance off-road GPS unit will provide navigation support in remote areas, and the satellite phone keeps the Warriors connected with emergency services.

The Foundation of Project Titan

Project Titan is built on the power of the 2014 Nissan Titan. With a standard 5.6L V8 engine, the Titan puts out 317 hp and 285 lb-ft of maximum torque for zero-compromises towing capacity. The 2014 Titan has a tremendous payload capacity and can haul up to 4,309 kg when properly equipped.

Turning Power into Performance

An off-road champion, the Nissan Titan understands that power is nothing without control. That’s why it’s available with four-wheel drive, an electronic locking rear differential, and off-road performance shocks. The available On-the-Fly four-wheel-drive system gives you the ability to switch between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive even at speeds as high as 97 km/h. To defend against dangerous loss of traction, the traction control system monitors wheel spin and reacts by managing engine output or applying the brakes as necessary. It can even correct over- or understeer issues by sending brake pressure to individual wheels.
