NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This might just be the perfect tailgating spot for this weekend’s upcoming Tennessee Titans preseason game against the St. Louis Rams. Nissan enlisted a heavy-duty crane to lift an all-new 2016 Nissan TITAN XD full-size pickup into a special “reserved” parking space next to the video scoreboard at the newly named Nissan Stadium in downtown Nashville, Tenn.
Nissan’s all-new TITAN XD pickup, powered by a Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel, goes on sale later this year. The TITAN XD pickup offers a maximum payload capacity of more than 2,000 pounds* – or roughly seven Tennessee Titans linemen.
