Nissan unveils Star Wars: The Last Jedi inspired Nissan Titan at 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show

  Nissan unveils Star Wars: The Last Jedi inspired Nissan Titan at 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show Nissan Star Wars AT-M6 Titan debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show just weeks before The Last Jedi film hits theatersNissan Invited our Truck Trend and Four Wheeler Network staff to have an exclusive look at their 2018 Nissan Titan AT-M6. The AT-M6 is the largest vehicle in the First Order’s arsenal for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so Nissan fittingly used their largest vehicle, the Titan, for the base of the AT-M6 show vehicle. This Nissan Star Wars collaboration also happens to be the biggest unveiling (in physical size) at this year’s LA Auto Show.

Tuff Country’s new Nissan Titan XD 2 inch lift kit is simple to install and gives the Titan a more aggressive look without requiring major changes to the suspension. This kit uses upper strut spacers to raise the Titan enough to fit 33 inch tires (trimming required).

Whether they legitimately need the extra ground clearance or simply like the look, truck owners love to lift their trucks. But if you have a relatively new truck and want to preserve the warranty, aftermarket lift kits can be a risky option. A factory lift kit, on the other hand, keeps your warranty intact while also preserving on-road drivability. Not every automaker offers them, but today, Nissan announced plans to sell one for the Titan.

Developed by Icon Vehicle Dynamics (not to be confused with Icon, the high-end car restoration company), the kit only uses bolt-on parts to give the Titan a 3-inch lift. When it goes on sale this spring, Nissan dealers will be able to install the kit on current Titan and Titan XD trucks in about four hours. And since it's OEM-approved, installing it on your truck won't void the warranty.

"We worked with ICON, a proven name in suspension lift-kit engineering, to develop the first kits to be offered through our Nissan dealer network," Billy Hayes, Nissan's head of trucks, said in a release. "They came back to us with a kit that is easy to install, maintains TITAN and TITAN XD's impressive factory payload and towing capabilities, and allows the trucks to be returned to stock for resale or end-of-lease return."

The kit includes adjustable coil-over shocks, custom rod end bearings, and heavy-duty ball joints, and since these parts can all be bolted on, dealers won't have to do any cutting or drilling to install them. Adding the factory lift kit may also improve how the Titan drives. "With the suspension lift kit's increased wheel travel and damping ability, ride quality should be enhanced both off-road and on," said Hayes.

Pricing isn't available at the moment, but expect that to be released soon, since the Titan factory lift kit will go on sale this spring.
