Nissan capitalizes on custom truck trend with Rocky Ridge Packages for TITAN XD, TITAN, Frontier and Armada

253 Days ago

  • The customized vehicles are available now to be purchased through Nissan dealerships
  • Full Nissan factory warranties, including TITAN’s America's Best Truck Warranty1, will be matched by Rocky Ridge
  • Collaboration announced today at the 2019 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, March 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nissan and Rocky Ridge Trucks are making it official – TITAN XD, TITAN, Armada and Frontier are now available to be purchased with Rocky Ridge packages at Nissan dealerships. The collaboration was announced today at the 2019 Work Truck Show, North America’s largest work truck exhibition event held March 6-8 at the Indiana Convention Center.

The turnkey truck packages are available through participating Nissan dealerships nationwide and can be fully financed through Nissan’s financial arm, Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC)2. In addition, Rocky Ridge – a top truck and SUV up-fitter with more than 30 years’ experience – will match all Nissan factory warranties, including TITAN’s America's Best Truck Warranty1, featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5-years/100,000-miles, whichever comes first.

The announcement comes at a time when consumers are customizing their trucks at a skyrocketing rate. A recent survey3 showed that 39 percent of truck owners in the U.S. accessorize or modify their trucks in some way, and the Enthusiast Segment makes up 49 percent of all U.S. pickup truck owners. Meanwhile, a separate study found that while truck buyers are the most brand loyal automotive segment, 80 percent consider more than one brand4.

“Truck buyers are unique and so are their trucks. And while truck buyers are the most brand loyal automotive segment, consumers are willing to consider other brands if the product and value proposition is right,” said Fred DePerez, vice president, North America LCV Business Unit, Nissan North America, Inc. “We’ve found there remains great opportunity within the truck and enthusiast market – and these big, bad, custom-lifted, Rocky Ridge-warranted Nissan trucks are definitely going to drive excitement and traffic to Nissan showrooms for a closer look.”

Rocky Ridge packages, which feature custom exterior and interior performance and luxury treatments, include:

  • TITAN XD (Gas and Diesel):  Stealth, K2 and Altitude packages
  • TITAN: K2, Altitude and X packages
  • Armada: Z3 package
  • Frontier: Z3 package
  • Available premium options and upgrades, including custom fade painted exteriors

All Nissan Rocky Ridge packages start with custom suspension systems designed to “stand tall” without compromising smooth ride and handling characteristics. For example, the TITAN XD and TITAN packages include 6.0-inch suspension lift kits, while Armada and Frontier feature 3.0-inch and 2.5-inch lift kits, respectively. All packages also include custom wheels and off-road performance tires selected specially for each model.

“Americans have always had a love affair with their trucks – but that affair doesn’t end with the purchase, it starts there,” said Burl Outlaw, CEO, Rocky Ridge Trucks. “Rocky Ridge has worked hard to show that Nissan hosts a perfect line of trucks and SUVs to facilitate that relationship. And there is no better way to show what is possible than to have examples ready for sale on Nissan dealer lots – easily financed by Nissan with warranties fully matched by Rocky Ridge.”
