"Beginning as a TITAN XD King Cab straight from the Nissan Canton, Miss. Assembly Plant – where every TITAN and TITAN XD is assembled – Smokin' TITAN is a dream project vehicle for tailgating and barbecuing enthusiasts like myself, and I can't think of a better way to showcase it than at – and along the way to – The Great TITAN Meat Up," said Billy Hayes, division vice president, Nissan Regional Operations, and a brainchild behind the vehicle. "I am very excited to get out there and show the world what this truck can do!"
Smokin' TITAN BBQ Trail Road Trip
Following its departure from Idaho City today, Smokin' TITAN will visit the following cities and locations along the way to the Great TITAN Meat Up:

Great TITAN Meat Up
On April 28 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., the heat will be turned up a notch at the Great TITAN Meat Up. With celebrity chefs Cory Bahr and David Rose serving as official judges, each of the competing teams will be challenged to out-cook a Nissan executive team led by Hayes, an outdoor cooking enthusiast. Hayes will be joined on his team by Brian Maragno, director, EV Marketing & Sales; Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing; and Kevin Yeoh, senior manager, Truck and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan Canada.
Competing against Hayes and his team will be five different media organizations, as well as a team from Nissan Canton Assembly, where the Smokin' TITAN and all TITAN and TITAN XD vehicles are assembled.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo commercial van is the "2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Award" winner in the van category. The Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards represent the website's ongoing effort to highlight vehicle value for shoppers beyond the initial purchase price. The awards recognize the brands and models with the highest projected residual value after five years.
"Cost of ownership and operation is a critical factor in the commercial van segment, and the Nissan NV Cargo – with its rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup – is designed as a true workhorse for commercial use2," said Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "The Edmunds award for highest projected 5-year residual value is a great third party confirmation of the NV Cargo's high quality and durability."
The NV Cargo, along with the 4-row/12-passenger NV Passenger and NV200 compact van, is sold through select Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide. All NV models come with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty1 – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. See dealer for limited warranty details.
"Buying a new car is a huge financial decision, and our 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to help shoppers discover the vehicles that can help them get the most out of their investment," said Avi Steinlauf, Edmunds' CEO. "This year's winners underscore a commitment to quality and reliability, and are good bets to hold their value over the course of ownership."
About the 2018 Nissan NV Cargo
The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo van provides exceptional utility thanks to a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheelwell housings and nearly vertical sidewalls – room enough to fit two 40x48-inch pallets, 10-foot piping or 4x8-foot drywall sheets. Along with maximizing cargo space, the sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification. The Nissan NV Cargo provides rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup, including an available High Roof with Body-on-Frame construction – the only van in the segment3 to offer this, providing most users the ability to walk, stand and work in the cargo area.
For the 2018 model year, all NV Cargo grades come equipped with standard RearView Monitor, 5.0-inch color display audio (5.8-inch standard on SL grade), Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant and USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices. In addition, the previous Power Package option content – power windows with driver's side one-touch down, power door locks with central locking, and Remote Keyless Entry – is now standard on S grade.
The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo is offered in three well-equipped models – the V6-equipped NV1500; the NV2500 HD, which is offered with V6 and V8 engines; and the NV3500 HD with a standard V8 engine. All three models are available with the Standard Roof, while the High Roof body is offered in the NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD models only.

Taking barbeque to another level, Nissan is debuting the world’s first fully integrated in-truck-bed smoker and mobile kitchen – a specially modified 2018 TITAN XD Gas King Cab dubbed “Smokin’ TITAN1.” Designed as a dream project vehicle for tailgating and barbecuing enthusiasts, Smokin’ TITAN features a custom flatbed with a built-in Lang BBQ smoker and an abundance of chef-friendly features. The truck will be on display this weekend at the 2018 Work Truck Show, the largest work truck event in North America.
“With its available innovative bed features, lockable TITAN boxes, Rockford Fosgate premium audio system and luxurious interior, the TITAN XD is a fantastic tailgating truck as is,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc. “But the incredible enhancements made to convert a stock TITAN into the Smokin’ TITAN – a built-in smoker, stove and spice rack – make it a dream for those who love to spend time with friends and family smoking meat, as I do myself.” The project truck started as a stock TITAN XD Gas King Cab – straight from the Canton, Mississippi, factory floor. The transformation to Smokin’ TITAN began with the addition of a custom CM Truck Beds aluminum flatbed – allowing space for three food prep stations each featuring a Partner Steel aluminum double burner prep stove alongside a Churrasco Brazilian Wood cutting board. A Teton Steel custom on-board 24x24 sink and water storage system is accessible with an easy step up from the flatbed. The self-contained sink and water system also can be interchanged with a Yeti Cooler when cold storage is more the priority. Utilizing TITAN’s flat load floor in the second row of the King Cab, an ARB 50-qt. Fridge Freezer and Slide was added to the backseat along with a custom built spice rack.
The heart of Smokin’ TITAN lies inside the custom trailer behind the truck. Since food smoking can create heat up to 600 degrees, the TITAN XD’s factory bed was removed from the truck and put on a B&S Custom trailer to prevent that heat from affecting the truck. The Smokin’ TITAN bed-trailer features two Nissan TITAN Boxes as lockable dry storage for the smoker pellets and wood chips flanking the smoker. Utilizing the TITAN’s innovative Utili-Track System, a B&S Customizing sliding tray was designed to easily slide the smoker in and out of the bed, supporting the custom Lang BBQ Smoker and Char Grill. When the smoker is not in use, the whole trailer is secured with a steel Diamondback SE Tonneau cover, allowing the user to smoke meat at a tailgate and pack it up for the trip home.
