To help highlight its “Calling All Titans” service organization, Nissan built a heavily customized
Titan XD for the American Red Cross to aid with disasters. The Ultimate Service Titan, which started out as a Titan XD Midnight Edition with a Cummins 5.0L V-8, boasts a mobile command center, first aid unit, and extensive storage, as well as a custom 4-foot–lengthened frame and B&S Customizing Conqueror bed box.
That rearmost part of the Titan XD is where it really gets interesting. A couch, desk, mobile kitchen, generator, and solar panels help it become the ideal place to host displaced residents and manage relief and recovery efforts. The command center also includes a SnoMaster refrigerator—intended to store blood for emergency deliveries to hospitals—and plenty of first aid supplies. More storage is located up top, where a Rhino Rack Pioneer tray system and Pelican gear cases reside. A wraparound awning extends from the roof rack, expanding the Ultimate Service Titan’s usable room to the outdoors.
Nissan also gave the truck an aptly named Titan Fuel Tanks 75-gallon unit, helping extend its range in situations when fuel isn’t readily available. There’s also extensive Baja Designs lighting, rugged Addictive Desert Designs bumpers, and a Warn ZEON frontmounted winch. Furthermore, Hellwig sway bars and an auto-leveling helper air suspension are included.
The Ultimate Service Titan is also fitted with an Icon 3-inch suspension lift kit, which is currently available through Nissan dealers as a factoryauthorized accessory. This kit features adjustableheight coilovers, tuned specifically for the Titan XD, to improve ride comfort and ground clearance. Completing the underbody package are Icon Rebound wheels and Nitto Ridge Grappler rugged-terrain tires.
The Ultimate Service Titan was on display at the 2018 Miami International Auto Show, but not before it made its debut at the Miami Beach Fire Department. The region, which has been stricken before by devastating hurricanes and other disasters, makes for the perfect place to introduce such a rugged, hardworking recovery machine.
