FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – In the Grand Canyon's 100th year anniversary as a national park, there is another cause for celebration. Nissan today revealed the Ultimate Parks TITAN, a purpose-built park support vehicle that will be donated to the Grand Canyon Conservancy through Nissan TITAN's partnership with the National Park Foundation.

The Ultimate Parks TITAN will be used to assist the organization's Canyon Field School, a partnership between Grand Canyon Conservancy and the National Park Service that offers unique opportunities for youth to experience the great outdoors in the heights and depths of Grand Canyon National Park. Also through Nissan TITAN's support, the Arizona Conservation Corps becomes a grantee of the National Park Foundation and will work to repair trails and park infrastructure at Grand Canyon National Park this summer.

"Nissan is proud to support the outstanding work being performed, trail-by-trail, campsite-by-campsite, by partners like the National Park Foundation, Grand Canyon Conservancy and Arizona Conservation Corps," said Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. "This custom-built TITAN XD 4x4 and trailer should help make their important work in remote areas of the park a little easier, safer and hopefully even a little more comfortable."

The Ultimate Parks TITAN is the final modified TITAN donated to national nonprofit partners as part of the Calling All TITANs campaign. The others include the Ultimate Service TITAN for the American Red Cross and the Ultimate Work TITAN created for  Habitat for Humanity.

The Ultimate Parks TITAN build, like the previous two projects, started with an understanding of the specific tasks at hand. For use in the Grand Canyon National Park, which is known for areas often reached only by pack mules, sure-footed traction and efficient load carrying were priorities. The Ultimate Parks TITAN is built off of a 2019 Nissan TITAN XD Gas PRO-4X Crew Cab and is designed to transport five people and a host of park equipment deep into the Grand Canyon National Park's remote areas.

As in all 2019 Nissan TITAN XD Gas PRO-4X Crew Cab trucks, the Ultimate Parks TITAN is powered by Nissan's 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine, rated at 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. All-terrain traction is provided by an advanced four-wheel drive system featuring a transfer case designed to ensure maximum power distribution in every gear. It distributes torque to both ends and provides four-wheel drive when added traction is needed. Like all TITAN XD PRO-4X models, the Ultimate Parks TITAN includes an advanced electronic locking rear differential that helps boost traction.
