Production of Nissan’s all new Tita XD full-size pickup is underway at the company’s Canton, Miss. assembly facility.
“It has been a long, hard journey getting to today and I want to express my appreciation to the entire Titan XD team,” says José Muñoz, executive vice president, Nissan Motor Company, Ltd. and chairman, Nissan North America, Inc, referring to the truck’s planning, design, engineering, testing and manufacturing teams from Nissan facilities across the United States.
The Canton facility, originally opened in May 2003, has more than 6,000 employees and has produced more than three million vehicles to date. The facility covers 4.2 million square feet. Along with the Titan XD, models produced include Altima, Armada, Frontier, NV Cargo Van, NV Passenger Van and Murano.
“Trucks have been a key part of Nissan’s manufacturing heritage – with the first Titan produced here in Canton and the first ever U.S.-assembled vehicle, a Frontier pickup in Smyrna in 1983,” says Steve Marsh, vice president, Manufacturing, Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant.
