PostHeaderIcon Is Nissan Opening The Door Again On A Possible Production IDx?

The curious tale of the two Nissan IDx concepts that made their debuts at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show has taken another turn. Long thought to have been scrapped as production options, the IDx concepts are now back in the Nissan headlines after the Japanese automaker recently filed a trademark for the name “Nissan IMX.” Now, this doesn’t automatically guarantee the marque is hinting at the two concepts from four years ago, but the filing revealed intriguing items about what the IMX trademark that can be connected to the IDx.

According to AutoGuide, the trademark was filed for a production car that could take in numerous forms, including as an “electric vehicle,” “sports car,” or a combination of the two. Nissan didn’t specify what kind of production model it’s planning for the IMX, but the close proximity of the trademarked name to the one used on the two concepts back in 2013 has caused renewed speculation on the fate of the retrofitted prototypes we saw in Tokyo. Then again, speculation is all that we have to cling on to at the moment. For now, the IDx concepts will remain just that; Nissan itself has said that it’s not planning to build a new sports car until after the current 370Z ends its lifecycle. Seeing as we just saw Nissan release an updated version of the sports car, all talks of sports cars will probably amount to nothing more than speculation. Still, the IMX trademark is intriguing for what it could turn into in the future.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan Pathfinder MSRP Announced

The official pricing for the refreshed 2018 Nissan Pathfinder has been revealed and it starts at $30,790. The macho and rugged SUV comes in the new model with Rear Door Alert system can help remind customers of anything that may be forgotten in the rear seat. There is also the optional Midnight Package including exclusive black 20-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black spoiler. Last but not least, you get standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB).

2018 Nissan Pathfinder Specs and Details: 

Other changes for the 2018 model year include two new colors – Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine; standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Services on Pathfinder SL grade (previously standard only on Platinum grade); additional four USB ports (six total); and revised option package naming and content.

The Rear Door Alert system can help remind customers of anything that may be forgotten in the rear seat – pets, valuables, dry cleaning, groceries and more. If the system detects that a rear door is opened prior to driving, and the customer does not open a rear door again at the end of the trip, the system can remind customers that something might be left in the rear seat. RDA is designed to be simple, unobtrusive and easily turned on or off as needed.

The new Pathfinder Midnight Edition, which was introduced late in the 2017 model year on the exclusive Platinum grade, has now moved to the more popular SL model (late availability). It features exclusive black 20-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black spoiler, black roof rails, black grille surround, black front and rear fascia accents, black license plate finisher, black badging, black splash guards, illuminated kick plates, exterior approach lighting and available Midnight Edition floor mats. It is offered in a choice of Pearl White, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black.

PostHeaderIcon The New 2018 Nissan Leaf Might Be The Best Replacement for the VW TDI

Last night Nissan finally unveiled the all-new 2018 Leaf, and it’s a massive improvement over the old car. The biggest news for EV fans will be the new 150-mile range. That’s nearly double what the original Leaf launched with. It’s even easier on your wallet with a starting price under $30,000, making it nearly $700 cheaper than the current model. But the best improvement is the all-new electric motor. The old car made a useable, but unimpressive 107 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque. But the new 2018 car makes 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, and that is more amazing than you realize.

Let us put those power numbers into perspective. The Volkswagen 2.0L TDI engine, the best “performance” fuel-economy engine on the market before the Dieselgate scandal destroyed everything, produces 150 horsepower and 238 pounds of twist.

Nissan just made a viable alternative to scorned TDI buyers.

True, the TDI had some other advantages like a massive 600+ mile range before needing to be refueled, but on a pure day-to-day performance perspective, the new Leaf might work. If you bought a TDI to make your daily commute, and you still want something that is good for the environment while providing the same level of thrust, maybe you should call your Nissan Dealer.

Yes, we do know that other alternatives like the Chevy Bolt and Tesla Model 3 have even more power and performance, but those cars also have much higher price tags. We aren’t sure about you, but we feel like people buying $26k Volkswagen’s might not be able to afford the $38,000 asking price of a Bolt.

But what do you guys think? Is the new Nissan Leaf good enough to be a real competitor in the market now? And if you are a former TDI owner, please let us now, and be sure to give us your thoughts on this new car.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan LEAF Goes Official – Details and Specs

It was long overdue, but finally we get a new LEAF with improved looks and features. The new 2018 Nissan LEAF boasts much sleeker looks and greater range. And if that’s not enough, it also packs a number of highly advanced technology features.

In short then Nissan has really stepped up their EV game with this new model. Gone is the simpleton face of the first-gen LEAF, replaced by sharp LED headlamps and a smart grille. Same applies to the rear where you get angular lights and classy accent. A floating roof is another highlights of the 2018 Nissan LEAF, along with new wheel designs and dynamic skirts.

The interior is still a little bit dull, but it’s not any worse than any of the rivals. The main highlights include vibrant blue stitching in the seats, dashboard and steering wheel and the new look of the 7-inch, full-color (TFT) display. The clever display showcases Safety Shield technology, state-of-charge, power gauge, and audio and navigation system information. Depending on the trim you can also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Powering the 2018 Nissan LEAF is an enhanced e-powertrain with a power output of 110 kW. Nissan claims a range of 378km/235mile which, if true, is really remarkable. But the main selling point of the new LEAF is all the futuristic tech features. There is the ProPILOT advanced driver assistance which is a semi-autonomous system. There is ProPILOT Park which takes over control of all steering, acceleration, braking and gear selection to automatically guide the car into a parking spot. And you get the e-Pedal which simplifies driving by combining the functions of both pedals into one.

The new Nissan LEAF will be on sale in Europe from January 2018.

PostHeaderIcon The 370Z Continues to Show its Age, Yet Nissan Refuses to Kill it

As excited as it was to hear rumors that Nissan was bringing thesuccessor to the 370Z sports car at the Tokyo Motor Show, it appears that the hype has fizzled out even before it had a chance to be worth anything. The latest word coming from former Nissan Australia Managing Director, Richard Emery, who has come out saying there are unlikely to be any plans for a new Z concept anytime soon.

Speaking with Motoring, Emery said that there are no plans to introduce a replacement study for the 370Z. His comments also came a few days after the automaker unveiled the 2018 370Z in Europe, packing some aesthetic improvements in the exterior and interior. Considering these recent developments on the front of Nissan’s Z sports car family, it does look like all those talks of a successor were premature. It doesn’t mean that they were unwarranted, though. The fact remains that the 370Z is eight years old and (should be) at the end of its lifecycle. It’s certainly possible that Nissan is giving the sports car one final facelift before officially launching the successor. Whether that’s a couple of years from now or not, it’s going to be a while.

Continue after the jump to read the full story.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2018 Nissan 370Z Facelift

Some say it should have been dropped years ago, but the 370Z soldiers on regardless of public opinion. In fact, they have just come up with a new one. Well, sort of new. The 2018 Nissan 370Z Faceliftis a slightly revised version of the old model with a new clutch. 

And yet Nissan expects you to pay at least £29,185 for it. Among the new stuff that might attract you to the 2018 Nissan 370Z we can mention the black door handles, black rear bumper fascia, dark-tinted lights, new distinctive 19-inch alloy wheels and a new Red Metallic exterior color. Equipment-wise, there is nothing to write home about. The NissanConnect Premium infotainment system, featuring a seven-inch touch-screen, sat-nav, DVD player and rear-view camera, is standard on GT grade as well as the 370Z NISMO. But that’s about it.

As for the performance, the engine is still the same old 3.7-litre 328 PS V6 unit. However, 2018 Nissan 370Z comes with a new EXEDY high-performance clutch for the manual version which is particularly good on downshifts. If you don’t fancy that you can get a seven-speed automatic. What’s more, the 370Z remains the only car in the segment to offer Syncro Rev Control. But apart from fantastic gear shifts the Fairlady does not bring anything remarkable to the table.You can do a lot better in that price bracket.



Ryan Gains, Chief Marketing Manager, C-Segment and Sports Cars, Nissan Europe, commented: “For nearly half a century, Nissan’s Z-car series has built a cult following with sports car fans with a passion for performance and quality. The Nissan 370Z MY18 remains true to this legacy, further elevating driving dynamics and classic design to new levels.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan Armada U.S. Pricing and Specs

As one of the manliest SUVs around, the new 2018 Nissan Armada is expected to do well in the market based on its looks alone. It also packs decent power and a long list of features. It’s a great package, the 2018 Armada, but it also costs a lot.

The starting price for a basic 2018 Nissan Armada is $45,600 USD, sans the $1,195 Destination and Handling charge. And that’s just the start. A fully-loaded version with more bells and whistles and 4WD can easily net 63 grand. While that might seem like a lot of money for a Nissan, there is some value to be found here, especially when you learn about the powertrain. It consists of a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V8 and 7-speed automatic transmission. Pick a model with 4WD and you’ll have an unstoppable off-roader.

As for the equipment, standard kit on 2018 Nissan Armada includes the NissanConnect 8″ infotainment. The device offers a wide range of connectivity features such as HD Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link, Enhanced Voice Recognition, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, and additional USB ports. A first for the Armada, and indeed any Nissan, is the Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM). Standard on Platinum model, it’s a rear view mirror that doubles as a rear view camera for when your view is obstructed by people or cargo.

2018 Nissan Armada MSRP:

Armada SV 2WD $45,600 USD
Armada SL 2WD $50,350 USD
Armada Platinum 2WD $58,690 USD
Armada SV 4WD $48,500 USD
Armada SL 4WD $53,250 USD
Armada Platinum 4WD $61,590 USD

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Titan and Frontier Midnight Edition

Due to popular demand Nissan expands the Midnight Edition treatment to their pickup models as well. The new Nissan Titan and Frontier Midnight Edition come with a package that adds many cool black stuff to the exterior.

The Midnight Edition package for Nissan Titan and Titan XD includes black grille with dark insert, dark headlights, black fog light finishers, black fender louvers (TITAN XD only), black outside rearview mirrors and door handles, step rails, black exterior badging, 20-inch black painted aluminum-alloy wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, charcoal interior trim, Midnight Edition exterior badges and available Midnight Edition floor mats.

As for the Frontier, you get a gloss-black grille, 18-inch gloss-black aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-gloss-black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles, black badging and available Midnight Edition floor mats. Availability of this packages are limited to some trim levels – Crew Cab SV and SL grade 4×4 and 4×2 models for Titan, Crew Cab SV and SL grade 4×4 models with a Cummins V8 for Titan XD, and  Crew Cab SV 4×2 and 4×4 automatic for Frontier.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Titan & Frontier Midnight Editions

Nissan is playing off the massive hype surrounding the total solar eclipse by introducing three new Midnight Edition trucks for 2018: the Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier. Not surprisingly, the trucks are blacked out from hood to hitch with black interiors and several popular add-on features included. Not only does this tie in perfectly with today’s celestial event, it complements Nissan’s huge success with the Midnight Edition treatment on its other vehicles, which are said to sell twice as quick as standard models.

Billy Hayes, Nissan’s division vice president for North America sales, said, “Following the tremendous response to the original Maxima SR Midnight Edition, we’ve created a complete portfolio of the popular blacked-out Midnight Edition look among our core Nissan sedan, crossover and SUV models. We expect the strong customer appeal to continue with the expansion of the Midnight Edition package to our Titan, Titan XD and Frontier pickups.” Nissan isn’t the only automaker doing well with special edition models boosting sales. Chevrolet is killing it with special editions like the Redline, Rally, High Desert, Custom Sport HD, RealTree, Special Ops, Alaskan, and Black Out editions. Oh, and Chevy also has its own Midnight Edition with a blacked-out appearance, too. Ram also plays the game, offering its Ram pickups with the Limited Tungsten, Subline Green, Copper, Night, Rebel Black, and Rebel Mojave Sand editions. Hayes followed up by saying, “A great custom look straight from the factory is what buyers really appreciate. We’re finding that buyers in the millennial age group especially are attracted to the Midnight Editions. Last year, Nissan was ranked as the number one brand for millennial purchases.”

Speaking of purchases, the Titan, Titan XD, and Frontier Midnight Editions will go on sale starting in the late fall of 2017. Pricing has yet to be announced. For the full details on the trucks, keep reading below.

PostHeaderIcon New Sports Cars Could Take The Tokyo Motor Show By Storm

Just as news is coming out that nine major automakers are skipping the Frankfurt Motor Show, there appears to be growing rumblings that the Tokyo Motor Show will play to not one, not two, but three sports car debuts. It’s already been rumored that the return of the Toyota Supra will take place in Tokyo, but according to Autobild, the Supra will also be joined by the Mazda RX-9 and the Nissan 390Z.

Obviously, this is pretty big news seeing three separate automakers launch three separate performance cars. They may be different in presentation, but the fact that all three automakers – major ones at that – are going to present sports cars that could turn into rivals of the others is making the Tokyo Motor Show a must-see event. To be clear, though, neither Mazda nor Nissan have confirmed their plans for their local auto show. Likewise, we’ve heard very little about the RX-9 at this point and even less about the Nissan 390Z. If these two cars do show up in Tokyo, it’s going to catch a lot of people off-guard. Even Toyota hasn’t confirmed its plans for Tokyo, even though all signs point to its next sports car making its world debut at the event. It might be best to taper off the excitement for the time being, or at least until we know something more concrete. That said, it is tempting to get a little excited about the possibility of three Japanese sports cars all showing up and debuting in the same event. And they said those days were gone.

PostHeaderIcon Lego Artist Knows His Way Around Lego Bricks Enough To Build A Nissan GT-R

By now, most of you probably know that Lego has been at the forefront of building brick kits for some of the most desirable and iconic cars in history. It has sets for the Volkswagen Beetle, Mini Cooper, Ferrari Enzo, and Porsche 918 Spyder, all of which are part of its popular Speed Champions line. What it doesn’t have at this point is a set for Godzilla. I’m not talking about the fire-breathing beast of Japanese lore; I’m talking about the fire-breathing beast of Nissan lore: the incomparable GT-R.

I know what you’re thinking: if Lego hasn’t built a kit for the Nissan GT-R, what exactly is that picture above because that looks suspiciously like a Nissan GT-R. Well, it is a Lego version of the Nissan GT-R, except that it didn’t come from Lego itself. It came from the imagination of famous Lego brick builder Firas Abu-Jaber, who used Lego bricks from other sets to create his own GT-R. According to Abu-Jaber, creating the Lego-ized version of the Japanese supercar took a lot of work and involved scouring through pieces that he thought could fit into building the car from the ground-up. Certain pieces, specifically the red Technic gear pieces, were taken from other kits under the Speed Champions line, whereas others weren’t so you can imagine how long the process was to simply find all the pieces that would fit into turning the whole thing into something that looks like the GT-R.

Lo and behold, Abu-Jaber actually did it. Not only that, his work is so incredibly detailed that you’d think that Lego actually is offering a kit for the GT-R when in fact it doesn’t. Kind of makes you wonder then what other Lego cars he can come up with if he had a treasure-trove of Lego bricks at his disposal. Is it too early to start throwing in requests? Maybe a Lego version of the Mercedes-SLS AMG, complete with its gullwing doors spread open?

PostHeaderIcon New Nissan Leaf to Cost Less than Tesla Model 3, Chevrolet Bolt

The Nissan Leaf is one of the most successful electric cars available right now, but the first-generation model is getting a bit long in the tooth, and it’s quite dated when compared to the much newer Tesla Model 3 and Chevrolet Bolt. A second-gen model is underway for a 2017 launch, but Nissan is still mum on the details, and we know a bit about its design thanks to a few leaked photos. Fortunately, a Russian website got its hands on a few spec sheets, and we now know a lot more about the upcoming EV.

Arguably the most important piece of information leaked here is the pricing. Apparently set at $29,990, the base price of the new Leaf undercuts the Tesla Model 3 and Chevrolet Bolt by $5,000 and $7,500 respectively. That’s a solid plus for the Leaf, but how does it fair on the performance front? Well, output is rated at 147 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, a significant bump over the 107 horses and 187 pound-feet in the current model. This rating places it below the Chevy Bolt, which comes with 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. A comparison to Model 3 isn’t yet possible as Tesla has yet to release the full details. The battery capacity is at 40 kWh, down from the Bolt’s 60 kWh and the Model 3’s 50 or optional 75 kWh capacity, but up from the previous Leaf’s 30 kWh.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes-Benz X-Class VS Nissan Navara

Well, Mercedes-Benz has officially debuted its first metric-ton (mid-size) pickup truck, the X-Class. But the truck isn’t a ground-up creation from Mercedes – rather the X-Class is based on the current Nissan Navara NP300. Mercedes has been forthright with its partnership with Nissan, saying it’s leveraging Nissan’s experience in the segment. But Thankfully, the X-Class isn’t a Navara with a Mercedes star slapped on – or so Mercedes says. In fact, the two trucks are rather closely related, though there are major differences between them. Let’s dive in and see what’s up.

Nissan has been building trucks since 1933, but it was the 1980s that brought iconic Hardbody the U.S. In 1997, Nissan changed the name to Frontier, while everywhere else in the world, the Navara name was used. The latest version debuted for the 2015 model year, marking the Navara’s third generation. As a traditional truck, it rides on a fully boxed ladder frame while power is sent to the solid rear axle or all four wheels via a part-time 4WD system. However, Nissan chose a five-link, coil-spring setup for the rear suspension, giving the pickup a smoother ride with a slight trade-off in payload and towing capacity versus its competition. American truck enthusiasts will spot same thinking within the Ram 1500 and 2500 pickups’ rear ends. Not surprisingly, this setup translates well to a pickup billed as “premium,” so naturally, the X-Class borrows the design. But you won’t find a Nissan engine under the X-Class’ hood – and that’s just the beginning of the changes. Keep reading for more.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan LEAF Aerodynamics Featured in New Teaser

2018 Nissan LEAF aero

All the evidence suggest that the new 2018 Nissan LEAF is shaping up to be a much better car than its predecessor. It’ll come with some semi-autonomous features and improved efficiency, a key part of which is a new shape that is so slippery (aerodynamics-wise), you may want to put a harness on it!

It’s all great of course, but if the 2018 Nissan LEAF is going to look anything like its predecessor – which is to say, crap – all that technology is not going to help it sell. Fortunately, as the teaser image above and the silhouette below show, the new LEAF looks a lot sharper than the outgoing model:

The improvement in aerodynamics of the new Nissan LEAF has been achieved by employing a number of tricks. First there is the shape of the whole thing which is, sort of, teardrop inspired by airplane wings. The engineers have also lowered it to the ground, reducing drag and improving stability while making it easier for the accelerating mass to cut through the air. Other new design features significantly stabilize the car when hit by strong crosswinds, meaning you will enjoy an overall much more refined driving experience.

2018 Nissan LEAF will be officially revealed on September 6, 2017.

PostHeaderIcon Nissan Rear Door Alert Technology

2018_Pathfinder_Rear_Door_Alert-1

It’s happened to us all. We are exhausted, our minds are preoccupied, so we park the car and head in forgetting that we have left something important in the backseat. If you are lucky, that thing would be groceries or your briefcase. If you are not, it could be your dog or your baby. That is why Nissan invented the Rear Door Alert technology.

Actually, the RDA was invented by a pair of Nissan engineers, who are also mothers. This is not something that would have occurred to a guy, because as far as we’re concerned an automobile consists of the engine and the steering wheel, and that’s it. So these mother picked up the slack and came up with the Rear Door Alert Technology which utilizes door sequence logic, center instrument panel message display and industry-first multiple horn honks to help remind drivers to check the rear seat after the vehicle is parked.

“The idea is if you open a rear door, whether to put a child or a package in the rear seat, the vehicle will help alert you when you get to your destination that you may want to check the rear seat,” said Marlene Mendoza, a mechanical engineer and mother of three. “We’ve built in enough time that you don’t have to rush, but if you don’t open the rear door again when you get out of the vehicle, we want you to think for a moment about what you may have put in the back seat.”

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan Leaf to Get Magical “E-Pedal”

The debut of the second-gen, 2018 Nissan Leaf is just a couple short months away, so it should come as no surprise that Nissan is teasing its resident EV as much as it can. So far, we’ve seen a shot of the headlight, the grille, and a video that shows how the brand’s new ProPilot, semi-autonomous driving system works. And, based on spy shots we’ve seen, the next-gen leaf is going to be quite attractive in comparison to the current model. Now, Nissan has released yet another teaser, and dropped another bombshell on us – it’s known as E-Pedal, and it’s set to revolutionize your driving experience… or make you hate the future of driving even more.

Designed as a single-pedal system, the e-pedal automatically controls braking and acceleration based on foot position. So, when accelerating, it acts just like your normal, everyday accelerator pedal, but what it does beyond that is something else. See, when you begin to lift your foot off, the car will automatically begin to slow down, which one would assume has a greater braking effect than the usual coasting you get in most cars. If you take your foot completely off of the pedal in operation, the car will automatically stop itself, with the big selling point being that it will even stop and hold on a hill, all based on the input of your foot on a single pedal. You have to admit that it sounds pretty promising, and it’s another step toward fully autonomous cars, but will people actually make use of it and trust it? Well, that remains to be seen. Keep reading to see a short video and to learn more about the upcoming 2018 Nissan Leaf.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Nissan LEAF e-Pedal Teaser

ePedal_infographic_LEAF Teaser_Global

Slow teasing campaigns quickly become wearisome and after a while you just start to hate whatever it is they are teasing. But in the case of the new 2018 Nissan LEAF there are so many new things about the car that in order to make sure they are all understood Nissan has to be slow, revealing them one at a time. 

And so the latest teaser for 2018 Nissan LEAF tells about a wonderful new feature called the e-Pedal. Basically, what the e-Pedal does is eliminate the need for the brake pedal. You can operate the car using only the accelerator as it serves the purpose of both traditional pedals. Press it and you go forward, release it and the braking process starts.

This is a feature currently workable only with electric cars because of their unique driving characteristics. But don’t worry, you don’t need to re-learn how to drive, even in the 2018 Nissan LEAF. They give you the option to turns this feature on and off with a switch.So you don’t have to use it. After a while though, you are going to want to use the e-pedal, especially in traffic where you no longer need to constantly brake and accelerate. It can all be done with one pedal, or the job can be relegated entirely to an autonomous co-driver.

The new Nissan LEAF is set for September debut.

New Nissan LEAF ProPILOT Park

It seems that car makers these days put a lot of thought and energy in giving their important models some sort of an X factor or a theme, a cool little something you can associate with that particular model. For the new Audi A8 it’s AI, and for the 2018 Nissan LEAF it appears to be the ProPILOT features. 

So after the first teaser showed us the semi-autonomous ProPILOT for the 2018 Nissan LEAF, this one shows off the ProPILOT Park system which is an automated parking assist. It’s an impressive feature,not long ago reserved only for the most high-end luxury cars, which reduces the stress of driving and makes life easier for the owner of the car.

The way 2018 Nissan LEAF ProPILOT Park system operates is thorough the data it gathers form its sonars and cameras. It can do parallel, angled, front or straight back-in parking by fully taking over the accelerator, steering and the brakes, although you can intervene and brake manually if necessary.

“This technology represents another milestone in Nissan’s ongoing commitment to bringing accessible, advanced driver assistance technologies to mainstream vehicles. Set to make driving safer and more enjoyable, the development of ProPILOT technologies is part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company’s blueprint for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society.”
