Now that the snows of winter have begun to recede, people from across Calgary are eager to hit the road and explore the outdoors again. Camping, hiking canoeing, mountain biking, and many other activities are all awaiting you. The only trouble is, how to get there?

You're going to need something with enough space to carry you and a couple passengers, plus all their cargo. You'll also want something capable of hauling your fifth-wheel or perhaps a trailer with your ATVs. Not to mention, something with a touch of off-road ability wouldn't hurt either, while the roads are still wet and muddy from winter.

The Titan XD can handle the toughest terrain


Luckily there's the all-new Titan XD. It offers everything you need to get you to your next holiday destination. A powerful Cummins 5.0L turbo-diesel engine can tow up to 12,000lbs, an integrated gooseneck hitch lets you pull the heaviest trailer, and standard 4WD will see you through even the toughest conditions.

Accessories for the Great Outdoors

In order to truly bring out the best in your Titan, consider a few high-quality accessories from our Parts Department here at Brasso Nissan. The Titan XD is a big vehicle, which is why a set of side steps can help make getting in and out much easier (not to mention you can use them to scrape mud and grime off your boots).

Another great option is a Bike Carrier to hold up to four bicycles at a time. Not only will this help save room in the bed, but the carrier plugs straight into the Titan's standard trailer hitch (not something guaranteed with aftermarket options).

Finally, for those who truly enjoy the outdoors, the Titan XD even has the option of a bed tent that (as the name suggests) fits perfectly into the Titan's bed. This option is a fantastic way to enjoy tenting while remaining high and dry, and it pairs up with the retractable rear bumper step accessory for easy entrance.

Get Out There with the Titan XD

So if you're looking for a pickup that has the ruggedness and towing capacity to see you through even the toughest outdoor adventures, then the 2016 Nissan Titan XD is your answer. Its high-strength steel frame and heavy-duty suspension, brakes, and differentials all work together to ensure that the Titan XD never breaks a sweat.

Nissan's new pickup also makes towing a breeze thanks to features like Remote Trailer Light Check, Trailer Sway Control to maintain control on bad roads or in a crosswind, and an integrated Trailer Brake Controller that lets you adjust your trailer's brakes for greater stability. There's even a 110-volt outlet in the bed so you can power your laptop, a set of outdoor lights, or anything else you can imagine.

Every Titan XD comes with a built-in 110-volt plugin


Put it all together and you have a pickup that offers all the comfort and luxury of its half-ton rivals from Ford or Ram, but with the capability and ruggedness of a heavy-duty pickup. So if you're serious about exploring the great Canadian outdoors, be sure to visit our Calgary-based dealership to discover everything that the Titan XD has to offer.
