Nissan is updating the Rogue Sport line for 2018.5. It’s not a major refresh, but it does make a number of safety features standard on all models including the base-level S. The standard features include automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic assist. The top-level SL trim also gains another standard convenience feature in the form of adaptive cruise control. This feature will also be available on the mid-level SV in the SV Technology Package.
Nissan is following up on last-year’s expedition-ready Titan Basecamp pickup with yet another expedition-ready vehicle. This time the company is going with its Nissan Patrol full-size SUV and it looks pretty sweet. From the renderings, it looks like it’s getting a number of off-road staples such as big steel bumpers, a substantial suspension lift, big tires, lots of auxiliary lights and a winch. It also has gas cans, traction boards, and a rooftop tent. It should have everything you need to camp
China is scrapping a limit on foreign ownership of automotive ventures, representing a major shift from policy in place for more than two decades, even as trade tensions simmer between Washington and Beijing.
One of the great things about technology is – with the exception of Apple products – consumers get more for their money every year. For example, the first 1GB USB drive I bought in 2005 cost me $30. Today you can get 10 for that price, delivered to your door thanks to Amazon. The same goes for car tech.
New York Auto Show week has come and gone, and, not surprisingly, the week’s biggest bits of news came from the halls of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC. Our favorite debut from New York was the Lincoln Aviator, a sharp-dresses crossover that looks lovely inside and out, and sits on underpinnings at least partly derived from the Ford Mustang.
In a world full of SUVs and crossovers all competing for similar buyers in similar segments, there are still some models that find their own little niches that lack such fevered fighting. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of those vehicles. It’s an oddball in the sense that it’s a midsize crossover SUV with a unibody chassis and independent suspension, but it still uses rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems and has some off-road capability. It’s also a midsize crossover, but only offers two
Nissan and Renault have been tied together as an alliance for nearly 20 years, but now the Japanese and French automakers are discussing whether to merge. Bloomberg, citing unidentified sources familiar with the confidential talks, reports that the idea is to form a single publicly traded company to better compete against giants like Toyota and Volkswagen.
Midsize family sedans may be losing sales to small SUVs, but hundreds of thousands of the things still left dealerships last year. The 2019 Nissan Altima introduced here at the New York Auto Show replaces one of the segment’s best sellers, joining a pair of other best-sellers, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, which were both redesigned last year.
Nissan designed the sixth-generation 2019 Altima to fulfill a lofty mission: shake up the midsized sedan segment. The carmaker said it was already well into work on its formerly best-selling vehicle when the Rogue crossover became the most popular Nissan on the lot. Once the Altima had been freed from the constraint of being the company’s No. 1 in the U.S., Nissan decided to go further with the Atima’s design and detailing, and make it a global car. The result sits on a new platform, gets two ne
The 2019 Nissan Altima midsize family sedan will be revealed very soon at the New York Auto Show. We’ve seen it in spy shots, and we’ve seen an early sketch, and now we know one of the features that will be available. The new Altima will have ProPilot Assist as an option.
