If you’re the kind of person that loves the great outdoors and also loves trucks there may be a solution – Nissan is looking after adventurers with the “Project Basecamp” presented at the Overland Expo 2017 West.
This is still only a concept – with the base vehicle being the already very capable 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, “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,” says Fred Diaz, head of Nissan North America’s trucks and light commercial vehicles division. This Titan XD comes with a three-inch lift, also packing a self-leveling air suspension, with 17-inch KMC Beadlock wheels shod in 35-inch Nittro tires. The modifications also include new bumpers, fender flares, rock rails, and a front winch to make sure you’re prepared for anything in the wilderness.
To cater to the overlanding hobby, Nissan packed on the Titan XD concept a roof rack and a fold-out roof-mounted tent, as well as numerous other storage racks, a portable fridge, water and fuel canisters, shovels, and other amenities. There’s also a Patriot Camper X2 trailer good for off-road use – adventurers might be able to persuade Nissan to perhaps introduce a range of accessories that could recreate this bold concept in the near future.
