Nissan Truckumentary Episode 1: History of Nissan Trucks

In anticipation of the next-generation Nissan Titan pickup truck, the automaker is releasing a web series called “Truckumentary.” It highlights the design, engineering and planning of the highly-anticipated next-gen Titan. Recently, the automaker released the first video, or Chapter One, which takes a closer look at Nissan’s truck heritage.

When you think American pickup truck, you may not think Nissan–and that’s exactly what the automaker hopes to change with the new web series. When the Titan is reveled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, it will be the latest in a series of Nissan pickup trucks that go back more than half a century.

This particular episode stars Brent Hagan of Nissan North America’s product planning team, who takes us through the compelling history of Nissan trucks as he visits Lane Motor Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. It all started with the 37hp 1960 Datsun 1200, the first Nissan (Datsun) truck sold in the US.

Take a few minutes to check out the video. Not only will you see some of Nissan’s most unique and priceless trucks, but you’ll hear about the automaker’s rich past from a guy who really knows his trucks.
