Nissan TITAN PRO-4X Project Basecamp: New King of the Mountain

An truck tailor-made for backcountry exploring By ,

Hot off the reveal of two modified and specially equipped truck concepts at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show in February, Nissan is following up with another, entitled Project Basecamp, which targets hard-core overlanding enthusiasts.

The new concept is based on a twin-cab Nissan TITAN XD PRO-4X and features a heavy-duty chassis, a 5.0L Cummins turbodiesel engine generating 555 lb-ft of torque and a cargo bed replete with innovative loading and storage solutions. It also goes far beyond the current production model in integrating some 60 specialized parts and accessories.

Of particular note are the 17-inch wheels fitted with hard-gripping off-road tires, a suspension lift kit for the four wheels (that can increase ground clearance by 3 inches), custom-designed fender flares and bumpers, rock sliders along the full length of the cab, specialized lights front, top and back and a front-mounted winch.

Want more for your extreme overlanding trek? The new Project Basecamp concept also features a Leitner Designs Overland bed cage, a Rhino Rack Pioneer roof rack system, a Foxwing awning, a Mt. Rainier Stargazer tent and a Black Forest portable Fridge Freezer, not to mention water canisters, shovels, an emergency kit and much more. The truck even comes with a custom Patriot Camper X2 Off Road Adventure trailer.

Having just had its official inauguration at Overland Expo 2017 WEST in Arizona, the Nissan TITAN XD PRO-4X Project Basecamp will be appearing at several other American shows and exhibitions this summer. Meanwhile, don’t miss out on our review of the 2017 Nissan TITAN lineup!
