Nissan Mid-Size Cars

After 15 Years We Just Might See and a New Nissan Frontier on the U.S. Market

After 15 Years We Just Might See and a New Nissan Frontier on the U.S. Market

We hope Nissan is not tricking us by calling a facelift "new"

Sometimes it’s baffling to see automakers ignore cars in its line up that need a little care and attention to become the cash cows. The Frontier is a classic example of that. Midsize trucks sell well on the market today, but Nissan has been lousy with development for the Frontier. However, things might change soon as a new Frontier may hit the roads very soon.

Nissan’s nod to a pro athlete keeps Godzilla fresh

Despite its age, the Nissan GT-R is still an absolute monster of a performance machine. That said, Godzilla does occasionally get outshined by the newer competition, and in response, Nissan offers a variety of special edition models. The latest is the Naomi Osaka Edition, which celebrates professional tennis player and US Open champion Naomi Osaka with a number of color combinations both outside and in the cabin.

2019 Nissan Maxima

2019 Nissan Maxima

Nissan’s flagship sedan gets minor updates and loads of new safety and tech features

Nissan’s participation at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show included the introduction of the 2019 Nissan Maxima. An updated version of the eighth-generation A36 Maxima in L.A. for the 2019 model year with a subtle exterior refresh to go along with a suite of new safety technologies. Nissan hopes that the updates are enough to stem the tide of declining sales that has plagued not only the Maxima but the entire sedan market in the U.S. As Nissan’s longest-running nameplate — the Maxima has been around since 1981 — there’s a lot of pressure on the 2019 Maxima to live up to, or even exceed, the expectations that Nissan has for it. The 2019 model goes on sale in mid-December.

2019 Nissan Maxima Has a Cleaner Look But Lacks any Performance Upgrades

2019 Nissan Maxima Has a Cleaner Look But Lacks any Performance Upgrades

A veteran that is trying to find its feet in the highly competitive market

The 2019 Nissan Maxima has made its official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It looks much better than the outgoing model, comes with added safety features, but does not get any sort of performance upgrades. Sure; it may be powerful enough, but did Nissan miss out on an opportunity to stand out from the competition?

Nissan Gives the 2019 Nissan Murano a Wider Grille; Calls it a New Car

Nissan Gives the 2019 Nissan Murano a Wider Grille; Calls it a New Car

Right click, Refresh! Not a lot more for the 2019 Nissan Murano.

Nissan brought a refreshed 2019 Murano to the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. While the company dared to call it new, I can only say that the Murano received some superficial changes to get in line with the latest Nissan design philosophy. Despite its exterior looks, the 2019 Nissan Murano will fulfil its task of being an awesome family hauler masterfully.

If you can recall, Nissan actually showcased a refreshed version only last year. True, changes included only modifications to the inside at the time. For this new 2019 Nissan Murano, changes are kept on the outside.

Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning

To quote Dr. Sheldon Cooper, “I cry because other people are stupid”

This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?

Nissan’s betting big with the launch of the sixth-generation Altima

Just as almost every automaker is stirring into the SUV skid, Nissan is stirring against it with the launch of the sixth-generation Altima. The Japanese auto brand is pulling out all the stops with the new version of the midsize sedan that, according to the company, represents “one of the highest investments in the history of Nissan.” The new Altima sits on a new platform, a new engine, and a new all-wheel-drive system.

The Next-Gen Nissan GT-R is Coming but it Won't Be the GT-R50

The Next-Gen Nissan GT-R is Coming but it Won’t Be the GT-R50

A New concept is underway, however

The current Nissan GT-R has been around for quite some time now, and it’s in dire need of replacement. Just like the current generation, a concept of the next-gen will arrive before the actual production car. However, the new car won’t borrow styling cues from the Italdesign’s GT-R50 show car. Now, that’s a surprising move!

Nissan Calls Its Own Shot, Claims Next-Gen GT-R Will Be The Fastest Super Sports Car In The World

Bold claims, sure, but when it comes to Godzilla’s progeny, there are no such things as hyperbole

Fresh off of unveiling the limited-run Nissan GT-R50, Nissan is dropping hints about the next-generation GT-R, including claims that it will be the “fastest super sports car in the world.” Nissan design boss Alfonso Albaisa dropped the bombshell at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, adding that the Japanese automaker is in the early phases of designing the new model. There’s no timetable on when the next-gen GT-R will surface, but with the current-generation model already 11 years into its life cycle, it should only be a matter of time before the spawn of Godzilla is introduced to the world.

Among them, there will be the most aggressive and powerful Nissan GT-R ever created. It’s called the GT-R50 and was design in collaboration with Italdesign. But on top of being the most powerful GT-R yet, it will also be the most expensive at a whopping $1 million.

And it could make it into production

Almost 11 years old as of 2018, the Nissan GT-R is pretty long in the tooth. And, even though sales have dropped dramatically in recent years, Nissan is still keeping the supercar into production with mild upgrades. With a new-generation model underway, the Japanese firm teamed up with Italdesign to build the most extreme GT-R to date. It’s called the GT-R50 and will make its debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week.
