The 2017 Nissan Titan was put on full display recently on the outskirts of Chicago in Villa Park, Illinois. A course showcasing the truck was created at the Odeum Theatre. The course was open to taste makers and provided a look into the capabilities of the Titan.

The course was comprised of areas that highlighted the truck agility when it comes to acceleration, handling and braking. The stand out features of this impressive vehicle are the driving aids. The brakes automatically engage when descending a dirt hill of about 8 feet. More information taken from the Nissan website is listed below:

“Like the TITAN XD, the TITAN half-ton offers cutting-edge available towing, utility features and driving aids, including an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control and a Trailer Light Check system that allows one-person hook-up operation – including checking turn signals, brake lights and running/clearance lights. It offers an available maximum towing capacity of 9,390 pounds and maximum payload capacity of 1,610 pounds when properly equipped.

Also assisting trailer hook-ups is the TITAN half-ton’s RearView Monitor with Trailer Guides. The available Around View® Monitor (AVM) provides a unique “bird’s eye” view of the surrounding area from front, rear and side cameras to help with parking and pulling in and out of tight spaces. The system also includes Moving Object Detection (MOD), which helps the driver detect moving objects such as vehicles, shopping carts or other large objects behind the vehicle when backing out via an on-screen notification and warning chime.

The new TITAN XD also includes a range of available advanced driving aids in addition to RearView Monitor and Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection, including Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Front and Rear Sonar System and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).”
