Nissan Titan

Last year, the 2017 Nissan TITAN XD Diesel shook up the pickup truck market with its potent and efficient diesel engine, which ultimately earned the truck the title of 2017 Rocky Mountain Truck of the Year, courtesy of the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP). Nissan defended the title this year, but with a different pickup—the 2018 Nissan TITAN King Cab—which ultimately claimed the title of 2018 Rocky Mountain Truck of the Year.

Journalists from the Rocky Mountain Region test drove eligible trucks for weeks to determine the winner. Ultimately, the powerful 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine of the TITAN King Cab, paired with its four-wheel drive platform and seven-speed transmission, won over the judges. The 2018 Nissan TITAN King Cab beat out the likes of the RAM 2500 and Ford F-250 for the title.

“The Rocky Mountains feature some of the best off-road terrain America has to offer, and the area is also home to some of the top truck enthusiasts in the country,” remarked Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. “Because of that, this award holds a great amount of significance, and we are thrilled for the TITAN lineup to take home top honors in back-to-back years.”

The potent V6 engine that won favor with the judges produces 390 horsepower and allows for a max towing capacity of 9,420 lbs. Other notable features of the TITAN King Cab include available six-person seating and wide-opening rear doors.

Here at Pischke Nissan, we were already proud of the 2018 Nissan TITAN, and this award only reinforces that feeling. To explore this award-winning truck for yourself, come and visit us in La Crosse, Wisconsin for a test drive.
