Tailgating Tips For Your Nissan Titan

Tailgating Tips in Your Nissan Titan

Make your life even easier this season by setting up the ultimate tailgate! No one is happier than a person driving their new Nissan Titan to the big game and starting with a cookout. By following these tailgating tips you can stay organized, remember everything you need and have more fun instead of taking the time to clean.

  1. Prep your food before you get there – By skewering meat, shaping burgers, cutting up veggies and more before you arrive, you can spend less time preparing and more time celebrating!
  2. Pack the essentials (and backups) – Go through your whole meal and day to make sure that you have what you need, and enough of it. You know you’ll need charcoal, tongs, can openers, condiments, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, etc.
  3. Think of the cleanup – When packing your food, bring items in a plastic tub that can be used to store dirty dishes when you’re done. You can also make a cardboard box into a makeshift cooler (just add a couple trash bags inside for waterproofing) and you can just throw it away at the end!

In the end, you want your tailgate to be about having fun, not stressing about every detail. Make sure to find the perfect truck for your tailgating needs at Lewis Nissan in Beckley, WV. Let us find you the pickup of your dreams!

Nissan Adds TITAN King Cab to Lineup

Nissan has officially completed its truck lineup with the addition of a TITAN King Cab for both the standard TITAN and TITAN XD. With this new cab option, buyers have more choices than ever before to find the ideal truck for their needs.

The King Cab offers available seating for up to six, has wide-opening rear doors, and even offers a “rear seat delete” option that comes with a flat loading floor and secure storage.

“The launch of the new King Cab body is the last step in a journey that began in December 2015 with the debut of the breakthrough TITAN XD, which continues to carve out a unique white space between competitors’ heavy-duty and half-ton trucks,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc.

On the TITAN XD, when buyers choose the King Cab, the truck will be 230.5 inches long and have a 6.5-foot bed. It is available on the S, SV, and PRO-4X models and can be had with either the 5.0-liter V8 Turbo Diesel or the 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine.

With the standard half-ton Titan, the King Cab comes with a 6.5-foot bed on the S, SV, and PRO-4X. It is only available with the 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine.

Nissan Titan Pickup Targets Untapped Niche in Market

The Nissan Titan pickup truck is targeting an “in-between” niche in its segment, giving it an edge over the big players in the industry such as Ford and Chevy. This special niche speaks specifically to drivers who like to have a big, powerful truck without having more power than they’d ever use, or drivers who bought a larger truck and miss the friendly handling and maneuverability of a smaller one. No matter the case, the Titan taps into that in between space to attract buyers.

Particularly large hydraulic cab mounts lessen the effect of road shock. In addition, the tires have been specially tuned to give a smoother ride.

The Nissan Titan pickup sits at a towing capacity of about 6,000 lbs., which Nissan representatives say also fits neatly into that in-between niche between a lighter duty pickup and a bigger, more powerful truck. The Titan was also tested on ranchers in Texas in the early stages of development to ensure consumer satisfaction.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Set to Take On Competitors

EngNissan - Lewis Nissanineered and designed in the United States, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD brought its own style to the Detroit Auto Show. The newly designed, full-size pickup is ready to throw down with the other major full-size pickup truck sellers, namely Chevrolet and Ford. With an improved towing capacity; new, more powerful, yet more fuel efficient engine; and a sweet interior, there’s no reason not to check out this truck.

The new Titan XD weighs in between full-size and heavy-duty pickup classes. Lighter than three-quarters of a ton yet more capable than a half-ton, the XD is a powerhouse. Under the hood you’ll find a 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel V8 engine that puts out 310 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque. With the right tow package, the truck can haul up to 12,000 pounds. The maximum payload hits 2,000 pounds. The new design is more aerodynamic as well. The Titan XD hits showrooms later this year.

2014 Nissan Frontier and Titan Rank on ‘Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks” List

2013 Nissan FrontierToday, drivers need trucks that offer ideal combinations of power and fuel efficiency. Not wanting for power, Nissan’s 2014 Frontier and Titan have proven themselves among the segment’s most fuel-friendly and have found themselves ranked among Edmunds.com’s  “Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks for 2014.”

The 2014 Nissan Frontier tied for second with 21 miles combined, and the Titan closed out the list with 15 mpg combined.

“People have associated pickup trucks with low gas mileage for many years, but we’re defeating that stereotype,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations, in a press release. “We’ve worked hard to produce pickups that not only provide excellent towing capability and ample cargo space, but also impressive fuel efficiency. This recognition by Edmunds validates our efforts to make fuel efficiency a priority across all platforms, from sedans to pickups.”

According to Edmunds’ criteria for their “Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks for 2014,” only fuel-efficient gas-only trucks were considered for the list with each model limited to one appearance. Were it not for this qualifier, the Frontier would have made the list a second time for its efficient 4.0-liter 24-valve V6 option (available in the SV V6 and Desert Runner trims).

Do you need a truck to get the job done quickly and efficiently? Do you want a pickup that eases the pain of the pump without sacrificing horsepower? Stop out to Lewis Nissan and test drive a Frontier or Titan this weekend!

Nissan Expands Next Generation of Titans

The Nissan Titan has not seen many changes since it’s been on the market for a decade. The 2015 Titan could make the truck more of a contender in the full-size truck market. The Ford F-150 is a serious competitor for the truck.

One of the vice presidents for Nissan North America optimistically predicted a 460 percent boost in sales for the redesigned pickup.  Pierre Loing, vice president of product and advanced planning and strategy for Nissan North America Inc was quoted saying, “Reaching 100,000 is certainly possible. We believe there might be a recipe to grab some of this huge segment”.

The full-size pickup market is the most profitable segment for the Detroit 3. Nissan is taking another shot in this market because sales for Chevrolet, Ford, Ram, Toyota, and Nissan reached almost 1.6 million units. There is a lot of ground that could be taken from its competitors. Sales for the Titan have been small compared to the Ford F-150, which is the number 1 selling vehicle.

To gain some of the market back, Nissan plans to add a regular cab model to the extended cab and crew cab. The pricing structure will also see some changes. Currently the Titan is more of a premium lifestyle pickup, they will offer lower-priced models with the redesign.

Nissan plans to focus on fuel economy as part of the redesign as well. Materials that will reduce weight and advanced technology will be utilized as well.

Mr. Loing stated that it will be hard to grab the attention of pickup intenders. He was quoted saying “It is domestic driven with a high loyalty to domestic products. So the question is, ‘Why bother?’ It is still a huge segment. Whether it is through build quality, equipment, some price advantage, you name it, it may work. We will try again.”
