The Nissan Alpha-T concept was first introduced to the world at the 2001 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The concept was a highly-stylised pickup proposal with slightly awkward lines and futuristic design details. The Alpha-T concept was designed to help pave the way for Nissan's first full size pickup.

Back in 2001, Carlos Ghosn, president of Nissan said: "The alpha-T Concept pushes the envelope of contemporary pickup truck styling. Our message to the public is that Nissan is serious about entering the full-size truck market in a big way - both in size and impact."

Three years later he was proved right when the company introduced the Nissan Titan full-size pickup - although the Titan borrows almost nothing from the Alpha-T's design. In fact the shape of the grille is about the only similar feature.

The Nissan alpha-T Concept's exterior features a massive front grille and bumper which is oddly matched with rather small headlights. The 4-door cabin is equipped with butterfly opening doors for easy access, a unique glass panel roof treatment with personalized opening sections and a retractable rear window. The seats are trimmed in saddle leather for a rugged, yet distinctive and high-class, look.

Inside the Alpha-T's cargo bed are numerous tie-down points and a power-operated slide-out bed floor (usable with the tailgate down). A tool box compartment is built into the tailgate.

Powering the Nissan Alpha-T concept was a 4.5 litre V8 producing 300 horsepower. This was matched to a
4-wheel drive and 4-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission.
