As the bigger brother to the Navara in Nissan’ global range, the Titan measures a full 5.8 metres long and is over 2.0 metres wide lending some real plausibility to its name.
Conversion work to right hand drive takes place at Performax’s Gympie, Queensland factory in line with ARD requirements meaning the Titan can be registered in all states and territories of Australia.
Under the bonnet the Titan XD packs a 5.0-litre Cummins turbo diesel V8 engine that produces 235kW of power and 752Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with power delivered to all four wheels.
Somewhat surprisingly given its overall size, the Titan’s payload is rated at a fairly average 900kg, putting it remarkably close to the payload capacity of smaller utes like the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger. The Titan’s advantage lies in its towing capacity, which is a hefty 5.2 tonnes depending on the towing attachment.
Pricing for the Titan range starts at $105,000 plus on-road costs for the single cab variants and $139,000 before on-road costs for the range-topping Platinum Reserve crew-cab variant, Performax also offers the Pro-4X sports model that includes Bilstein suspension among other touches for $135,000.
Standard equipment includes 20-inch alloy wheels, 306-degree camera system, extensive underbody protection, tyre pressure monitoring and electronic stability control incorporating trailer-sway control.
The Titan XD Platinum Reserve also adds leather trimmed heated and cooled front captain's chairs, a large locking compartment under the rear bench seat and a driver’s memory function that saves seat, steering wheel and mirror positions.
Performax backs the Titan XD range with a three-year warranty and 24-hour roadside assist. Prospective buyers can get their first look at the Titan at the Queensland Caravan Camping & Touring Supershow in Brisbane this week.
