Update: Why gasoline only? We reached out to Nissan and Kevin Raftery confirmed what we thought. According to Raftery, “The XD Diesel powertrain coupled with the weight of the plow would be in excess of the front axle load capacity.”
Winter is coming. No, we’re not quoting Game of Thrones‘ Ned Stark here, since in that universe winter has already arrived. We’re actually talking about winter that is rapidly approaching in our quadrant of the globe. Nissan is ready by offering a snow plow prep package on their Titan XD pickup truck.
The Titan XD is the heavier-duty offering in the lineup for people who need extra towing or hauling capacity. For S and SV trucks equipped with the 5.6L gasoline V8, they can now order their trucks with the capaiblity to be plugged right into a snow plow.
The prep kit includes heavier front springs so the truck can support plows up to 786 pounds on the S trim crew cab. Plows are available from all the major makes, including Boss, Fisher, Meyer, SnowEx and Western. People who order their trucks with the prep kit also get a $500 upfit allowance.
