A HEAVILY accessorised 2020 Nissan Titan has been turning heads at the SEMA 2019 Show in Las Vegas this week.
Fitted with an array of Genuine Nissan Accessories, the decked-out Titan will be on display until November 8 at the Nissan North America Booth in the Lower South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The drivetrain components remain unchanged, with Nissan focussing on upping the ante in regards to protection and practicality.
To this end, the accessorised Titan features a sliding bed extender, a rear bumper step assist, tie-down anchors, an assist handle for tailgate access, front and rear mud flaps, a sport bar affixed with off-road lights and light covers, side-step boards, door scuff protector, and illuminated kick plates. For towing, the Titan gets a four-inch drop hitch ball mount.
The curtains officially dropped on the showroom-stock Titan in September this year at the State Fair of Texas, but what are the chances of it ever coming direct to Australia?
In November 2018, we reported that Australia was high on the list of export markets that Nissan was looking at, with the brand’s chief product specialist Pedro Deanda confirming “the Titan would expand beyond its North American base.”
“We have seriously studied right-hand drive markets … with Titan,” he said at the time, adding that, “we continue to explore the opportunities.
“We know that there is interest from Australia, but to make it right-hand drive is a challenge in terms of volume,” he said.
In further news, Nissan also debuted the Frontier Desert Runner at the SEMA Show; an off-road-focused package developed by MA Motorsports and the Nissan Motorsports team.
The Desert Runner has been shoehorned with the full-size Titan’s 5.6-litre V8 – turbocharged, of course – as well as reworked suspension comprising a BTF Fabrication long travel front suspension kit, King Racing Triple Bypass front shocks and coil-overs, rear King Racing Triple Bypass shocks and Giant Motorsports Link Killer rear leaf springs. However, the Desert Runner is only available in 4x2 configuration ... bummer.
