Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. on Tuesday revealed its Titan Warrior Concept pickup at the Detroit auto show, a design study that could show how the new 2016 Titan XD pickup could be created into an off-road adventure truck.

The concept was created by Nissan design in California and also was done to show its heavy-duty capabilities. The Titan XD went on sale last month.

Nissan said it knows that truck buyers are always looking for more options.

“Our eyes are always looking forward,” Jose Munoz, chairman of Nissan North America, Inc., told journalists at the North American International Auto Show.

Nissan also is showing its IDS Concept autonomous driving vehicle at the show after it was shown at the recent Tokyo Motor Show. Renault-Nissan Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn said last week that the two companies would launch more than 10 vehicles with driverless technology by 2020.
