The Nissan Titan ute has made it to Australian shores as part of conversion specialist Performax International’s line-up.
Powered by a 5.0-litre turbo-diesel V8, the Titan develops a meaty 235kW of power and 752Nm of torque, with drive sent to an on-demand four-wheel drive system via an Aisin-sourced six-speed automatic transmission. Those outputs help the Titan achieve its 900 kilogram payload rating, along with a towing capacity of 5.2 tonnes.
Starting at $105,000 plus on-road costs for the single-cab variant and climbing to $139,000 before on-roads for the top-spec XD Platinum Reserve crew cab with Bilstein suspension, the Performax Nissan Titan joins other US-sourced pick-up trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and Toyota Tundra.
Headlining equipment features include a 2.0m x 1.62m tray, a 120V power socket, an electric-locking tailgate 20-inch wheels, 360-degree camera system, underbody protection, vehicle dynamic control, trailer sway control and tyre pressure monitoring.
Inside, the top-spec Platinum Reserve gets luxury appointments like leather-trimmed front captain’s chairs with heating and cooling, eight-way power adjustment with memory for the front seats, along with electric steering wheel and exterior mirror adjustment with memory.
Crew-cab models also get a large locking compartment under the rear seat bench.
Like the wider Performax range, right-hand drive Nissan Titan vehicles are converted at the company’s factory in Gympie, Queensland.
The line-up is covered by a three-year warranty with 24-hour roadside assistance, along with in-house service and parts departments, and a national dealer network.
