The results of Nissan's Project Titan vehicle-build program are in and participating Titan fans will be able to help outfit and customize a new rig with all sorts of outdoor and survival equipment for a pair of post-9/11 veterans.
As you might remember, the project was part of an event Nissan created for the 2014 Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas in January, where Nissan asked thousands of outdoor journalists for their suggestions for the ultimate half-ton adventure vehicle (see video below). Nissan got valuable feedback about what features would be great to have on its next pickup truck (likely to be a 2016 model that will debut at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit). As part of the project, the participant who entered the winning submission would get to go on his or her ultimate adventure with two veterans.
The winner is writer Joe Byers, who was awarded a one-year lease on a 2014 Titan Pro-4X; he will be joining Iraq War veterans — David Guzman and Kevin McMahon — from the Wounded Warrior Project to Alaska to push this project truck to its limits. The adventure project will allow the three explorers to experience some of Alaska's beautiful remote backcountry.
We'll have more about exactly how this vehicle will be setup and what features it will offer in upcoming reports.
