You've already seen three of the five trucks so far that will compete in our upcoming 2018 Best Half-Ton Truck Challenge: the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country, the 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat and the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT. We've only got two left to preview, and now it's time to take a closer look at the 2019 Nissan Titan Pro-4X.

Nissan's only off-road package, the Pro-4X uses monotube Bilstein off-road shocks to go with substantial 275/65/R18 all-terrain tires wrapped around dark-painted inner alloy wheels. There's also extra skid plating up front to protect the radiator, a set of paint-protected tow hooks, and an electronic locking rear differential. The package is rounded out with Pro-4X graphics outside and embroidered logos on the seats inside.

Our test unit also came with three option packages; the first and least expensive was the Pro-4X Premium Package, which includes backup and 360-degree cameras, ventilated front seats plus side mirrors that tilt down automatically when placed in Reverse. That package will run you $795.

Next was the Pro-4X Utility Package that added $1,845, and provided front and rear parking sensors, an integrated trailer brake controller, larger manual extendable tow mirrors, Nissan's Utili-track bed cargo system and movable tie-downs, and a 12-speaker premium Fender stereo system.

Finally, the Pro-4X Convenience Package added $3,545 to the final total and featured a heated steering wheel and heated all-leather seats, leather door and console surfaces, a four-way power front passenger seat, a memory system for the driver's seat, steering wheel and side mirrors, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and a remote start system.

Those $6,185 in additional options, plus a $1,295 destination fee, took the 2019 Titan Pro-4X's price from the $46,710 base price up to $54,190 — the lowest price in our Challenge by thousands of dollars. Be sure to stick around for our upcoming preview of the last competitor in our test, the 2019 Ram 1500 Limited, and check out our results Monday to find out if this Titan had what it takes to beat the competition.
