Here's how the Cummins-diesel powered 2016 Nissan Titan XD was bumped, shaken, and slammed all over America to simulate about 350,000 miles of regular use, work, and off-road driving.

Video's heavy on marketing rhetoric (and goofy iMovie title screens), but who doesn't love seeing a prototype get its butt kicked?! The testing we're seeing here went down at the Nissan Technical Center North America (NTCNA) outside of Detroit and the Nissan's Arizona Test Center (ATC) in the desert.

The bump at 03:25 looks like, just, the worst. But it's nice to see that low-hanging air splitter can stand to get reamed up, down, and sideways.
