Can the Nissan Titan PRO-4X make it up our Gold Mine Hill trail in the wet? We had to find out. The new Titan half-ton came out for the 2017 model year a little more than a year ago. We ran the 2017 PRO-4x up Gold Mine Hill in the dry, and it did well. It’s a whole new year, and it’s been raining most of June. It’s time to see how these General Grabber tires and the Titan 1500 do in the mud.
The 2018 Titan is mostly unchanged this year. There is a new Titan Midnight edition for 2018, and the Titan light duty now comes in more variation: regular/single cab, king/extended cab, and the crew cab you see here. The 5.6L gas V8 is still the sole engine choice for the Titan 1500. It’s rated at 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. The 7-speed automatic does the shifting.
The PRO-4X off-road version of the truck can be had in king or crew cab configurations. The equipment is same as before: slightly higher ground clearance (10.6 inches), skid plates, Bilstein shocks, transfer case with 4-LO, a rear locker, and hill descent control are all available.
This first episode of our upcoming Titan Trials video series is called “First Mud”. Indeed, this long-term test truck has just over 600 miles on the clock. Now, it’s going up into the mountains for some wet fun.
