On the Road Review: Nissan Titan XD Turbodiesel Pickup Truck

Heading out Route 6 from Lincoln, traffic counts dwindle swiftly, but the view out the windshield reveals numerous wind towers across the hilltops here and in Lee. The road surface starts to deteriorate — the obvious effects of countless logging trucks supplying the local industries — and the houses become few and far between. Nissan’s new Titan XD and I are getting deeper into remote Maine while really sampling how this new diesel pickup performs, handles and drives in less than perfect environments.

Nissan Donates $1 Million to Enrich People’s Lives with Habitat for Humanity

Nissan donates $1 million to enrich people's lives with Habitat for Humanity

 

Grant will fund new home builds and revitalization projects using sustainable construction practices, vehicle donations to Habitat affiliates and support for disaster recovery efforts

Nashville, Tenn. – Moving into a new home is a life-changing experience, according to Nashville homeowner Keisha Crump, who moved into her Nissan-sponsored Habitat for Humanity home in April 2014.

"Maybe once in a lifetime miracles happen, or maybe never," said Crump. "I can truly say that a miracle has happened for me and my family. For that I say thank you from the bottom of my heart."

Dozens of homeowners across the United States and Canada will share an experience similar to Crump's in the coming year, thanks to a $1 million donation from Nissan to Habitat for Humanity International. Today Nissan announced the continuation of a longstanding partnership with Habitat to build affordable, sustainable homes in partnership with families in need of decent housing.

Including its current donation, Nissan's total support for Habitat for Humanity amounts to $11.6 million over the past nine years. Nissan's partnership with Habitat began in response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. Nissan donated 50 Nissan Titan trucks to assist Habitat's response efforts in the Gulf Coast and mobilized employees to assist in-home building. Since 2006, Nissan employees have helped to build 60 homes across the United States. Nissan's employees have logged more than 70,000 volunteer hours building homes with Habitat for Humanity.

"With Habitat, Nissan has a broader platform through which we can support the communities where our customers, dealers and employees live, carrying out our corporate vision to enrich people's lives," said Nissan senior vice president Scott Becker. "And as Habitat volunteers, our employees can engage directly in addressing local needs for affordable housing by making personal commitments of their time and effort on Habitat home builds."

In addition to working coast to coast with Habitat affiliates in Canada, Nissan employees will volunteer to support construction or revitalization projects in the following U.S. cities:

  • Habitat for Humanity of Central Arizona in Phoenix, Ariz.

  • Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley in Sunnyvale, Calif.

  • Northwest Metro Atlanta Habitat for Humanity in Atlanta, Ga.

  • Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County in Detroit, Mich.  

  • Habitat for Humanity of Metropolitan Jackson in Canton, Miss.

  • Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County in New Jersey

  • Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville in Nashville, Tenn.

  • Habitat for Humanity of Williamson County in Franklin, Tenn.

  • Habitat for Humanity of Rutherford County in Murfreesboro, Tenn.

  • Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity in Dallas, Texas

  • Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project 2014: Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity in Dallas and Trinity Habitat for Humanity in Fort Worth, Texas

The company will donate four Nissan NV commercial vehicles or Nissan Frontier trucks to Habitat affiliates that make commitments to sustainable construction practices. A portion of Nissan's donation will also be used to support Habitat for Humanity disaster recovery efforts and its Global Impact Fund.

Next month, five Nissan employees from the U.S. and Canada were selected to join more than 4,000 Carter Work Project volunteers who will help build or repair more than 100 homes in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, during the seven-day project. The 31st Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project will be conducted Oct. 5-11.

"We are grateful to Nissan for the continuous support through the years," said Jonathan Reckford, Habitat for Humanity International CEO. "Together, we have made a difference in the lives of so many families in need of affordable housing. We look forward to continuing our work together to help families build a better future."   

Nissan, recognized as a U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year, is committed to sustainability. Nissan-sponsored Habitat homes are equipped with many "green-living" features, including low-flowing plumbing fixtures, programmable thermostats, energy-efficient fluorescent lighting, high-performance windows and ENERGY STAR® appliances.

Top 5 Coolest Nissan Cars Featured in Gran Turismo

Top 5 Coolest Nissan Cars Featured in Gran Turismo

 

Nissan just debuted a new, futuristic-looking sports car concept for Gran Turismo 6 called the Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo, which joins the extensive list of Nissan vehicles that have been featured in all six editions of Gran Turismo. In fact, Nissan has had more vehicles featured in the game than any other brand since the original Gran Turismo debuted in 1998. Out of these 148 cars, here are our five standout picks.

 

1998 Nissan R390 GT1

The mid-engine Nissan R390 racer was built for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1997 and 1998, and was a fast runner in its class thanks to the twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter V-8 engine and extremely aerodynamic body. Although two of Nissan’s three R390 cars suffered mechanical failure in the 1997 race, four R390 GT1 racers completed the 1998 Le Mans race all in the top 10. The R390 was retired after 1998 because of changing regulations, but you can still run the Nissan R390 down the digitalized version of the famous Mulsanne Straight thanks to Gran Turismo. You can even virtually drive the extremely rare road-legal version of the Nissan R390, of which only two were ever built.

 

2001 Nissan GT-R Concept

One of the coolest things about Gran Turismo is that you can drive one-off concept cars that, in many cases, weren't even drivable in real life. This GT-R prototype, which debuted a full six years before the current-generation Nissan GT-R was revealed at the 2007 Tokyo auto show, was meant to show what the legendary GT-R would look like in the 21st century. Although the roofline may have more closely previewed the look of the Infiniti G35 Coupe, many of these design cues like the swept-back headlights and quad rear taillights, made it to the GT-R we know and love today.

 

1989 Nissan Fairlady Z 300ZX Twin Turbo

The 1989 Nissan 300ZX was featured as one of our 5 Japanese Cars that Shocked the Auto Industry in 1989, and this sports car was truly a revolution with its high-tech, high-performance construction that brought new life to the Z nameplate after a few decades of softer and heavier Z cars. The twin-turbo V-6 engine put out 300 hp, a big number for the time, and we named it our 1990 Design of the year, comparing it with the benchmark Porsche 944.

 

1989 Nissan Pao

This tiny 51-hp hatchback may not fit in with the other performance cars on this list, but the Nissan Pao was a funky, retro-inspired limited edition car for the Japanese market only. Underneath, it was similar to the Nissan March economy car, but the exterior design stood out with its boxy lines, available canvas roof, external door hinges, and chrome luggage rack that were meant to evoke classic cars like the Citroen 2CV and the original BMC Mini Cooper.

 

1971 Nissan Fairlady 240ZG

Although it was called the Datsun 240Z in the U.S., this Nissan 240ZG is the same original Z that first started Nissan on its impressive run of affordable sports cars. This Japan-only 240ZG model featured in Gran Turismo was built as a homologation special for the Group 4 racing version of the Z in 1971. It featured a 2.4-liter straight-six with 150 hp that mated with a five-speed manual transmission. For more on the Datsun 240Z, check out our drive through the hills of Tennessee in a 1971 240Z and a 2013 Scion FR-S.

Nissan announces America’s best commercial van warranty

Nissan announces America's best commercial van warranty; now 5-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper coverage

 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nissan is announcing America's best commercial van warranty* on its Light Commercial Vehicles, increasing basic limited warranty coverage from 3 years/36,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. The powertrain limited warranty has also been extended from 5 years/60,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.

The specific models covered by this new bumper-to-bumper warranty include the 2014 NV Cargo Van, NV Passenger Van and the NV200 Compact Cargo.**

"While we're relatively new to the world of commercial vehicles in the U.S., we've already proven our mettle with vehicles that endure harsh conditions that passenger cars will never see,"  said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations.  "This warranty reaffirms our confidence in the quality of our vehicles, as some of the NV 2500 and 3500 models have already accrued 550,000-plus miles of real-world use.”

 

The improved warranty retroactively covers all 2014 model year Nissan Commercial Vehicles. Nissan has been selling LCVs in the U.S. since spring 2011 with the introduction of the NV Cargo and NV Passenger vans. The NV200 Compact Cargo was released to acclaim in April 2013 and is also the base for the Chevrolet City Express, General Motors' upcoming entry into the segment.

"As Nissan Commercial Vehicles have established a reputation for ruggedness and durability in the field, we're gaining sales traction and customer acceptance of our work vehicles," Diaz added. "We're in the commercial vehicle game for the long haul, and this warranty will further help our customers to have greater confidence in their vehicles."

Nissan's new Light Commercial Vehicle warranty was inspired in part by the stories of Nissan Commercial Vehicles experiencing remarkable longevity under real-world work circumstances with businesses such as Above and Beyond Delivery. The company operates a fleet of 18-20 Nissan NV 3500 cargo vans out of Chandler, Ariz., supporting the mining, pharmaceuticals and food services industries. Above and Beyond began working with Nissan back in 2011, when an NV Cargo was lent to the company for its operations in the mining industry.

The initial vehicle used by Above and Beyond accrued more than 550,000 miles on its odometer with few repairs or downtime in the course of its service - the most major being an alternator replacement at 382,000 miles.

"Our drivers operate in the extreme weather of Arizona in challenging conditions, such as the Morenci Mine, which is one of the world's largest copper mines. Service failures are not an option for us. If a vehicle is down, it is not making money, so the reliability of the Nissan NVs is a massive advantage," said James Bowman, president, Above and Beyond Delivery.

"We have been very impressed at how good the Nissan NV lineup has gotten - especially with our half-million-mile experience with a single NV Cargo hauling large rock samples - so we are in the process of transitioning all of our light-duty delivery vehicles to Nissan NVs.  We have 25 vehicles on order at present."

Year-to-date, Nissan has sold more than 10,700 commercial vehicles in the U.S., an 88 percent increase over this time period in 2013.

All Nissan Commercial Vehicles sold in the U.S. are assembled in North America, with the NV Cargo and NV Passenger assembled in Canton, Miss., and the NV200 assembled in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

NISSAN Rogue listed as top ’14 Most affordable compact SUVs, beating Honda, Subaru, Ford and Toyota!

NISSAN Rogue tops the list of 2014 Most affordable compact SUVs, beating out Honda, Subaru, Ford and Toyota!

 

If you're shopping for a compact SUV, the bevy of competitive options to choose from may overwhelm you. Since the last comparison test in 2012 new models from Jeep, Nissan and Toyota have gone on sale, and they're selling quite well.

One other thing that has changed recently: Most models in this segment come with relatively well-equipped base levels, or with just a few options selected. That makes finding the most affordable versions easier, but it's not a simple task.

Cars.com compiled the right trim levels that deliver expected features in this class and included the cost of gas over five years to determine the most affordable compact SUV among the ranks.

The redesigned Nissan Rogue topped the list by a scant $295 over the smaller and less well-reviewed Mitsubishi Outlander Sport when taking into the factors used to compile the list.

The new 2014 Nissan Rogue is available at all seven Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego.

2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 S vs. 2014 Toyota Camry LE

2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 S vs. 2014 Toyota Camry LE

 

When it comes down to mid-sized sedans, there are several options that will get the job done. But why not choose the car that will do the best job while providing the best value? The Toyota Camry may be thought of as the standard mid-size sedan, but the new 2014 Nissan Altima is making a name for itself as a better alternative when compared to the Camry.

The new 2014 Nissan Altima sports a sleeker design than its Toyota counterpart, and performs better than the Camry. See the table below:

 

Performance2014 Nissan Altima 2.5 S2014 Toyota Camry LE
Fuel economy - city (mpg)2725
Fuel economy - highway (mpg)3835
Fuel economy - combined (mpg)3029
Fuel tank (gal.)1817
Horsepower (hp)182 @ 6,000RPM178 @ 6,000RPM
Torque (lb.-ft.)180 @ 4,000RPM170 @ 4,100RPM

 

The new 2014 Nissan Altima outperforms the Toyota Camry in both horsepower and foot-pounds of torque, and manages to provide a higher gas mileage on the highway and in the city. But the 2014 Nissan Altima's benefits over the Toyota Camry don't end there. The Altima's amenities and features shine where the Toyota Camry falls short.

Vehicle Security SystemStandardOptional

While many features come standard on the 2014 Nissan Altima, several of these amenities are costly upgrades on the 2014 Toyota Camry, or aren't available at all. Nissan's Intelligent Key system and tire specific low tire pressure warning are not found on the Camry, and other key Altima amenities such as cargo tie downs and radio data system provide a feature-rich user experience. The 2014 Nissan Altima also provides more front head and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

All in all, the 2014 Nissan Altima edges out ahead of the Toyota Camry in both power and available features. The new Altima's superior gas mileage and overall performance make it a better purchase than the 2014 Toyota Camry.

Shop our entire Nissan Altima inventory in San Diego today to find the one that's right for you.

2014 Nissan Rogue named a “Must Test Drive” SUV for 2014 by AutoTrader.com

2014 Nissan Rogue named a "Must Test Drive" SUV for 2014 by AutoTrader.com

 

- All-new crossover recognized for practicality and sophisticated interior; joins the ranks of 2013 Pathfinder -

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Fresh off a record-setting March, encouraging news continues to pour in for the all-new 2014 Nissan Rogue. Today, AutoTrader.com, a leading resource for car shoppers and sellers, named the 2014 Rogue a "Must Test Drive" SUV for 2014. According to AutoTrader.com research, the test drive is considered one of the most influential parts of the decision making process for car shoppers, an important incentive to put together the "Must Test Drive" awards each year. The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder was named to the list last year.

In selecting the Rogue to the "Must Test Drive" list, editors at Autotrader.com noted the completely redesigned crossover's "affordability, versatility and refinement," and impressive features such as available third-row seating and Around View Monitor. Editors also pointed to the Rogue's revamped interior and best-in-class 33 miles per gallon (mpg) highway fuel economy in front-wheel drive models*. As AutoTrader.com Site Editor Brian Moody wrote, "The 2014 Nissan Rogue is simply the best compact SUV available."
For Nissan, this accolade comes on the heels of news that Rogue set an all-time monthly record with 19,420 deliveries in March 2014, an increase of 26.3 percent. Nissan's second-best selling vehicle has enjoyed impressive numbers since it went on sale in November 2013 - in its first full month of availability, sales of the 2014 Rogue were up 27.8 percent, and sales have only continued to climb since.
"With a wealth of new features, a revamped interior, superior gas mileage and much more, the 2014 Nissan Rogue was re-created to compete with the best in a very competitive segment," said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. "So far, sales numbers have confirmed it's doing just that, and recognitions like this one only point to increased success in the future. Realizing the tremendous influence of a test drive, we're especially grateful to be included in AutoTrader's 'Must Test Drive' list."
The Nissan Rogue, which was completely redesigned for the 2014 model year, challenges convention once again with bold emotive styling, a premium interior created with comfort and multi-tasking in mind, and an array of available affordable technologies. Rogue offers optional 3-row/7-passenger seating, along with exceptional passenger and cargo flexibility with its innovative EZ Flex seating System and innovative Divide-N-Hide Cargo System. Every 2014 Nissan Rogue is equipped with a responsive 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 170 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with an advanced Xtronic transmission. Rogue comes in three well-equipped models, S, SV and SL, each in a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Nissan-powered prototypes show good pace in two practice sessions at Sebring

Nissan-powered prototypes show good pace in two practice sessions at Sebring

 

SEBRING, Florida - Both the Muscle Milk - Pickett Racing Nissan ORECA and the OAK Racing Nissan Morgan looked to match the pace of the Daytona Prototypes in the first three practice sessions for the Sebring 12-hour on Thursday.  Alex Brundle had the second fastest lap of the first session for OAK racing with a very fast 1:52.86, but the car fell off that pace somewhat in the later sessions, managing only 10th best time in the afternoon and night practices.
The Muscle Milk- Pickett Racing Nissan-powered ORECA was more consistent, with Klaus Graf notching the third fastest lap in the afternoon session, sandwiched by fifth fastest in the morning and Lucas Luhr driving the seventh fastest in the night session. GT Academy Europe Champion Jann Mardenborough will be competing in his first race on American soil with teammates Lucas Luhr and Klaus Graf.
"Sebring is one of the old-school circuits where if you make a mistake, there isn't tens of miles of runoff. There's grass and then there's tire barriers and concrete barriers as well," said the 22-year old Englishman. "It has surfaces and elements I’ve never seen before, so there is a lot to learn.  There's more than 60 cars entered for the race so I think it's going to be really busy and exciting."
The closed cockpit Daytona Prototype cars have led each of the three sessions on the challenging 3.74-mile Sebring track.  Tire wear will be a major factor in the race, as the concrete surface of the converted airfield has an abrasive effect on racing tires.

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe

 

A DESIGN MORE THAN 40 YEARS IN THE MAKING

It's a living legend. With the emphasis on living. The iconic lines, low center of gravity, wide track, and short wheelbase give it that unmistakable, instantly recognizable profile.

DRIVER OBSESSED COCKPIT

The 370Z® employs a three-layer design philosophy that makes you feel completely connected the instant you sit down.

 

STORAGE FOR THE REAL WORLD

Trunk Space

The rear cargo area offers plenty of open space for the important things in lif - like golf clubs. An available retractable cargo cover helps keep things out of sight. Inside the cabin, clever built-in storage means everything has a place, and a hidden compartment behind the passenger's seat helps conceal valuables.

IT'S NOT A CAR, IT'S AN EXPERIENCE

332-hp 3.7-L V6.

The 370Z® is powered by a 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6. The engine features Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) technology that continuously tunes valve timing for quicker response and optimal fuel efficiency. All this engineering may sound intriguing on paper, but the exhilaration from idle to the 7,500-rpm redline is pure magic.

MAY THE G-FORCE BE WITH YOU

Handling & Brakes

A low center of gravity and a wide stance give it ultra-responsive handling and enhanced cornering. The relatively short wheelbase and overall length of the 370Z® make for incredible maneuverability. But you still need to stop, so the most powerful 370Z® Coupe ever has available 14" front rotors and the gripping power of 4-piston front calipers.

Aerodynamics

All 370Z® models feature zero front lift. If you're after even more performance, go with the Sport Package. It includes a lower front chin aero deflector and rear spoiler for zero rear lift.

Smart Engineering

To harness all 332 hp, our engineers improved the design and material composites for key rotating components. The available 19" RAYS® forged alloy wheels are stronger and lighter than typical cast wheels. And the reduced-rotating mass on the lighter, incredibly strong carbon-fiber composite driveshaft helps the engine rev more quickly.

A SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS

SynchroRev Match® Manual Transmission

SynchroRev technology monitors the clutch, shift lever, and vehicle speed so that when you downshift, the system "blips" the throttle to the ideal engine rpm for a supremely smooth downshift. It also works when upshifting to give you seamless acceleration. If you want more traditional performance, you can turn the system off with the touch of a button.

 

7-speed Automatic Transmission

A 7-speed automatic transmission gives you the best of a manual and an automatic—a wide spread of gearing for heart-pounding acceleration, while still providing improved efficiency and quiet cruising at higher speeds.

350 HP WITH ATTITUDE

Its name is synonymous with passion, expertise, and especially the height of Nissan performance. NISMO® puts it all into everything it builds, from championship-winning racecars and accessories for street cars, to one of the world's most desirable sports cars—370Z® NISMO®. With bumped up power and pumped-up handling, it has transformed into a sports car singularly worthy of being branded NISMO®.

 

THE SOUND OF PERFORMANCE

Dual Exhaust

A free-flow dual exhaust combined with H-pipe configuration reduces back pressure up to 30%. The result: responsive upper-end power for an exhilarating redline rush and an exhaust note that's pure performance.

SERIOUS POWER

Engine

Combine the Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) technology with a free-flowing dual exhaust to reduce back pressure and ultimately increase high-end power. Listen to the deep, mellow rumble turn into an unmistakable battle cry as it revs to its 7,400 RPM redline. Feel the exhilaration of responsive power that proves this 370Z® is truly for the pure performance aficionado.

The Nissan 370Z is available at all 7 Mossy Nissan locations in San Diego.
