Nissan is no stranger to Habitat for Humanity, having donated more than 150 trucks and $16.9 million since 2005. The 14-year partnership reached new heights with the unveiling of the Ultimate Work Titan, the second in a series of three Ultimate Titans built as part of the purpose-driven Calling All Titans campaign.
Featuring a complete mobile office, toolkit and off-road necessities, the one-of-a-kind work vehicle was on display at The Work Truck Show, and then officially donated to Habitat for Humanity, where it will be put to work on and off the job site.
In creating the Ultimate Work Titan, Nissan and Habitat spent countless hours talking with construction site supervisors and volunteers across the country to find out what they needed most in a truck. These working men and women are passionate about their trucks, and there was no shortage of ideas. After compiling their feedback, three common suggestions emerged:
- Off-road capability is a must
- The interior should be treated like a mobile office
- The bed must be loaded with easy-to-access tools, ladders and lockable storage
And with that, the build of the Ultimate Work Titan commenced.
Originating as a stock Titan XD Diesel Crew Cab Midnight Edition, transformation into the Ultimate Work Titan began just as the Ultimate Service Titan did — with the addition of a factory-authorized ICON 3-inch suspension lift kit.
Anchored by Nitto Ridge Grappler tires and Icon Alloys Rebound wheels, the truck adds Addictive Desert Designs bumpers to provide an additional layer of protection, while a Warn Industries Zeon Platinum 12-S Winch ensures the Ultimate Work Titan can help itself and counterparts out of even the most challenging situations.
Knowing that supervisors are constantly in need of updated build site maps, blueprints, punch lists, daily reports and submittals — among a daily list of paperwork — a 13-inch laptop and a printer was added to help make life a little bit easier. And not to be overlooked in the back seat is a full mobile office, featuring a custom desk and file storage with an additional power inverter.
When it’s time to get out of the mobile office and into the work site, the Ultimate Work Titan bed is a great place to start. Anchored to Titan’s innovative Utili-track Bed Channel System, a Bedslide 2000 Heavy Duty sets the stage for easy access to all the bed has to offer.
Connected to the bed slide is a Decked lockable storage system, where a site supervisor can confidently store tools. Commercial class heavy duty lockable tool boxes are included along the sides of the bed for additional storage.
Inside the lockable storage are some of the highest quality tools in the industry. Products stored within the bed include a table saw, chop saw, chainsaw, air compressor and drill kit.
A Zamp 200 Watt power inverter was included to provide power sources in addition to the 110-volt power outlet included both in the bed and the cabin.
Atop the Ultimate Work Titan sits a TrailFX aluminum ladder rack featuring multiple commercial grade ladders, easily accessible with the help of the Titan XD bed step and dampened assist tailgate.
And at the end of another long day at the job site, builders will rest easy on the standard Titan XD Zero Gravity seats, enjoying music on the new Fender Premium Audio System, reflecting on a job well done.
