Despite thebeing old as hell, the with its Cummins-designed V8 diesel engine is pretty awesome, and that's why it was chosen to serve as the basis for the ultimate work truck. But aside from a burly diesel engine and a big ol' truck body, what else does a work truck need?
To find out, Nissan polled thousands of Habitat for Humanity volunteers all over the country and the three big suggestions that kept coming up included real off-road ability (because hey, job sites get muddy), an interior that feels like a mobile office and a bed that is loaded with easy-to-access tools and ladders as well as lockable storage bins.
We're guessing that former president and noted Habitat for Humanity booster Jimmy Carter suggested they add a fro-yo machine and mint dental floss dispenser in the cab, but apparently, that's a generational thing and likely didn't go over well.
Anyway, with the volunteers' suggestions in hand, Nissan went to work. It started by equipping the truck with a 3-inch lift kit, bigger and more aggressive Nitto tires, a winch and tons of LED work lights. It also added a ton of other cool features like Bedslide rails -- which allow easy access to stuff in the bed without climbing in -- and lockable tool boxes galore.
Inside the truck, Nissan added a 13-inch laptop and printer before turning the back seat into a real mobile office with a desk and file cabinets. We're not sure, but having spent a little time in the back of a Titan, we're guessing it helps to be smol if you're going to be working back there.
Compared to some of thethat Nissan has , this one feels like it's well-thought-out and reasonably practical for its intended use, plus we're 100 percent behind anything that benefits a charity like Habitat for Humanity. If you're in Indianapolis, the Ultimate Work Titan will be on display until March 8.
