The Chicago Auto Show is known for its love of trucks and truck accessories. The show, which starts this weekend, has been the go-to place for manufacturers to debut their latest and greatest. This year, Nissan will debut not only a few new iterations of its own Titan pickup, but also a heavily modified Titan Pro-4X outfitted with Genuine Nissan Accessories.

Painted in Super Black, the special 2017 Nissan Titan Pro-4X Crew Cab packs the same 390-hp 5.6-liter V-8 and seven-speed automatic transmission available on the standard truck, but has been outfitted with a front grille insert, new 20-inch wheels, accessory step rails, LED fog lights, a new bed box, tailgate guard, and a new rear bumper step. Also added to the project was a prototype Nissan Motorsports lift kit, a prototype Nismo Titan cat-back exhaust system, Hankook Dynapro ATM tires, and a tonneau cover that goes over the bed. However, these are just a few of the available components, and upcoming components, that customers can purchase through Nissan.

According to Fred Diaz, Nissan Truck VP and general manager, “We want to demonstrate to Titan owners how they can transform their trucks using parts and accessories that can be readily available through their local Nissan dealers. And what better showcase for the modified Titan than in Chicago at the country’s largest auto show?”

The parts certainly enhance the truck’s look, but whether they make any difference in performance remains to be seen. Hopefully Nissan has a similarly modified Titan they can loan us so we can find out.
