After the Titan XD Project Basecamp, Nissan has revealed another project vehicle called Titan Surfcamp which according to the company, is an ultimate collection of modern beach toys.
The Surfcamp started life as a 2018 Titan XD Midnight Edition. It is inspired by the vintage beach trucks of the 1960s and 1970s, and features a retro color scheme with roots in Nissan’s heritage – Hot Wheels’ 1971 Datsun Bluebird Wagon nicknamed “JNC Surf Patrol”, also inspired the wrap.
From off-road tires to the rooftop tent, the all-inclusive beach cruiser features surfboards, paddleboards, fishing rods, a solar-powered shower and more.
The transformation into Titan Surfcamp began with the addition of factory-authorized ICON suspension lift kit, available through Nissan dealers. Perfect for loose sand, the Surfcamp then added ICON Alpha wheels wrapped in Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Body armor to protect it from the elements comes via Fab Fours Vengeance Series front bumper.
The interior of the Surfcamp is ready for sandy passengers with wetsuit-inspired seat covers and heavy-duty rubber floor mats.
Utilizing the Utili-track Bed Channel System, Surfcamp creates storage for fishing tackle, wetsuits and other supplies with the Decked bed drawer storage system. Additional storage is available on top with a Leitner Design cargo rack and Rhino-Rack roof rack.
To wash off the salt and sand, a Road Shower rack mounted solar shower and teak wood deck is incorporated. A Rhino-Rack Batwing awning provides much needed shade and a Yeti 125-quart cooler will keep your catch and favorite beverage cold. As the sun sets, lighting from KC, Rigid and Baja Designs illuminate the path ahead, and when the stars come out, a Freespirit Recreation Elite Series automatic tent offers the perfect spot to rest.
“In the summer, beach parking lots are full of trucks hauling surfboards, fishing rods, boats and campers as people crave the sun and sand,” said Fred DePerez, vice president, Nissan North America LCV Business Unit. “Inspired by the vintage beach trucks of the 1960s, Titan Surfcamp is a celebration of the beach truck tradition with all the modern technologies Titan customers want when they head out to surf, shore fish and camp-out by the water.”
The Titan XD sits on a heavy-duty commercial-grade ladder frame chassis. The Surfcamp is powered by a Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo diesel engine that develops 310 hp and 752 Nm of torque (555 lb-ft), paired to Aisin-sourced 6-speed automatic transmission.
