2022 Nissan Frontier Project Adventure

2022 Nissan Frontier Project Adventure

A concept ready to take on any American roads!

Nissan brought the Frontier to the North American market back in 1997 and since then more four million trucks were sold. With the new generation, the company has bigger hopes, as the new Frontier is the first one dedicated for the North American market and it is not shared with the global model.

At the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, Nissan revealed three concept cars that will prove that only the sky is the limit when it comes to the customization possibilities of the Frontier. The first one - Frontier Project 72X - pays tribute to the Datsun 720, and the second one Project Adventure was built to invite American customers to explore the amazing sceneries of the U.S., no matter where they are located.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder - Driven

2022 Nissan Pathfinder - Driven

The Nissan Pathfinder has been redesigned for the 2022 model and starts at a shade under $35,000

Nissan’s desire to get a bigger share of the ‘three-row SUV’ pie resulted in it reinvigorating the Pathfinder. The Pathfinder has been around for a long time and needs no introduction. For the 2022 model, the SUV has been redesigned on the inside and out, and it looks quite fresh and modern. Just like most of the other three-row SUVs, the Pathfinder is trying to offer the practicality of a minivan in an SUV form.

The Pathfinder doesn’t have a widespread buffet like the Ford Explorer and is offered in just four trims. It also comes with just one engine and transmission option. However, it has a spacious cabin with lots of little storage places inside. The towing capacity is impressive, too. The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder recently arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters, and here are our impressions of it.

2022 Nissan Armada

2022 Nissan Armada

A Japanese giant battleship that is not only strong but also gets powered by a gusty V-8.

Not many companies are successful in the full-size SUV market other than the American ones like Ford and GM. But if you step out of the popular options, there is this monster coming from the house of Nissan, strictly made for the American interests. This Nissan Armada is a serious full-size SUV packed with a good amount of luxury and performance but there are some caveats - a few of which are quite big.

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

2022 Nissan Frontier - Driven

The 2022 Nissan Frontier is a huge upgrade over the outgoing model, breaking the chain of a 15-year design philosophy

The Nissan Frontier has been a trusted workhorse for its owners for a very long time. The truck has been as reliable as it can get. Last year, a Chicago-based delivery driver, Brian Murphy, clocked one million miles on it! However, Nissan took the ‘don’t fix if it ain’t broke’ philosophy a little too seriously. At a time when automakers come up with significant changes even in facelifts every year, Nissan retained the same design language on the Frontier for 15 years! But, for the new, third-gen 2022 model, we get a revamped design that puts it in line with the modern trucks. The company introduced a new engine and gearbox for the previous model year and the same has been carried over this time as well.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier in the top-sped PRO-4X off-road trim arrived at TopSpeed’s headquarters recently, and here’s all you need to know about it.

Retro JDM Comparison: Toyota Supra Vs Nissan 300ZX Vs Mazda RX-7

Three Japanese legends from the 1990s show us why they are some of the most desired Japanese sports cars, ever made

Japanese sports cars from the 1990s are some of the most recognized ones amongst the car culture. As described by Jeremy Clarkson, in a movie about the Nissan Skyline GT-R, Japan took over the world…and then lost it. While the latter is a topic for another time, what is true for the Skyline also goes for these three – the Toyota Supra, Nissan 300Z, and Mazda RX-7. Our colleagues from “EverydayDriver” - Todd Deeken and Paul Schmucker - take us on a spirited drive with these three JDM legends to determine the pros and cons of each and why they are so desired.

2021 Nissan Rogue - Driven

2021 Nissan Rogue - Driven

Nissan’s best-selling vehicle and one of the most popular in the small SUV segment is all grown up

The Nissan Rogue rolled into its third generation for the 2021 model year as the brand’s best-selling vehicle and one of the most popular small SUVs on the market. That’s saying a lot since it contends with cars like the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, among many others. The third generation kicks off with updated looks, new tech, and some all-new features along with an all-new range-topping Platinum trim – the model we just spent an entire week with. Will the third-gen Rogue live up to the standards set by its predecessor and, more importantly, can it overshadow its stiff competition?

2023 Nissan Z

2023 Nissan Z

The seventh-gen Nissan Z has a simple name, retro styling, and amazing mid-level performance.

The new Z is more aggressive, more stylish, and will probably lure you with its absolute madness that is a not-so-expensive price tag. Does the new Nissan Z hold up to the name and is it an improvement over teh outgoing 370Z? Keep reading to find out.

This is just five miles away from where the original 240Z was unveiled, back in October 1969. This is the seventh generation of the iconic Z car and promises to be the most exciting one yet.

2021 Nissan Altima - Driven

2021 Nissan Altima - Driven

The Nissan Altima is the definition of average family sedan, but the VC-T makes it a little more interesting

The sixth-generation Nissan Altima has been on the market since 2018, and was generally received as more technologically advanced, better looking, and better equipped than the fifth-gen model. Three years in, however, and it’s easy to wonder if the Altima can still hold its own so close to its mid-cycle update. We spent a week with the Altima VC-T to see just how well it manages to navigate the cut-throat midsize sedan market.

2021 Nissan Versa - Driven

2021 Nissan Versa - Driven

Is Nissan’s mini sedan still a good option despite the continuous decrease in sales year over year?

The current N18, third-generation Nissan Versa was released in 2019 among falling sales in a dying segment. Featuring Nissan’s latest design language, revised technology, and better materials, but it’s still one of the last few remaining subcompact sedans on the market, and the lack of interest is so obvious it hurts. In 2019, Nissan sold 66,596 Versas in the U.S., 2,369 in Canada, and 88,707 in Mexico, while the 2020 model year saw those numbers drop to 48,273, 125, and 68,013, respectively. That leaves us to wonder: Is there something inheritantly wrong with the Nissan Versa’s recipe, or are falling sales just the result of the COVID pandemic and a general lack of public interest in small sedans? We spent a week with the Nissan Versa to find out.

1997 Nissan R390 GT1

1997 Nissan R390 GT1

Shedding light on Nissan’s other iconic car

When we talk about legendary Nissan cars, the first one to come to mind is always the GTR, also known as “Godzilla”. Other significant models of the brand include the Silvia and Fairlady Z models, but there is one more that has largely been forgotten – the R390. Skyline’s heritage and success largely overshadowed anything else the brand came up with. In addition, the 1990s spawned many great supercars, one of which the McLaren F1. Whether that’s the reason for the Nissan R390’s fall into obscurity, these are all the important facts you want to know about Nissan’s mid-engine supercar.

2021 Nissan Qashqai

2021 Nissan Qashqai

The new Qashqai is bigger, more spacious, and comes with new mild-hybrid powertrain options

Back in February this year, Nissan unveiled the third-gen of the Qashqai compact crossover. It has been quite a seller in Europe, with over three million examples sold so far since its inception 14 years back. The third-gen Qashqai rides on a new platform, features changes inside out, and comes with hybrid engine options only. There has been a lot of weight-saving measures, too, which will result in the crossover being more efficient than before. All these changes come at a cost, which results in the 2021 Qashqai being significantly more expensive than the outgoing model.

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

2021 Nissan Armada - Driven

Nissan’s full-size SUV has been updated with fresh tech, but does that make it good enough?

The Nissan Armada started life back in 2004 riding on Nissan Titan underpinnings and was built in Canton Mississippi. All that changed when the second-generation was launched for the 2017 model year, with production shifting to Yakuhashi, Kyushu, Japan as Nissan based the second-gen on Nissan Patrol underpinnings that feature some very specific modifications to make it suitable for the North American market. As of 2021, the Nissan Armada has been updated to feature a prettier face, a new center console inside, and some updated technology. As is the case with all refreshed models, we’ve been wondering if Nissan did enough to keep the Armada relevant in such a brutally competitive market. Does it hold its own against the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition? Well, let’s find out.

2021 Nissan Maxima - Driven

2021 Nissan Maxima - Driven

Has an old dog learned any new tricks for 2021?

The Nissan Maxima – there’s quite a bit to say about it. Once a popular, full-size family sedan, the Nissan Maxima has fallen from average U.S. sales for 60,000 plus to just 18,141 units in 2020. Those numbers in 2020 are specifically worrying as Nissan updated the Maxima for the 2019 model year to bring in some extra safety and modernized technology. As of 2021, the Maxima is now five years into its eighth generation, so have things turned around or does Nissan have to make a tough choice between discontinuation and spending heaps of money in designing a ninth-gen model? We spent a week with the 2021 Nissan Maxima to find out, and this is our experience.

2022 Nissan Pathfinder

2022 Nissan Pathfinder

This SUV has been losing its path lately and the 2022 model could bring the much-needed boost to its sales

Nissan recently revealed that it will be debuting the Frontier pickup truck and the Pathfinder SUV on February 4, 2021. Both these vehicles will be entirely new and not mere refreshes. Both these vehicles are expected to follow the design philosophies of their ‘bigger’ siblings, the Titan and the Armada. The Pathfinder will come with a plethora of changes inside out, and perhaps a new off-road trim, too.

Update 2-4-2020 The new, 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has finally be revealed. We’ll be updating this review in the coming days, but until then, you can check it out and learn all you need to know in our feature debut article!

2022 Nissan Frontier

2022 Nissan Frontier

Nissan is finally making much-needed amendments to the workhorse after 15 years

Nissan made a lot of changes to the last Frontier update, but there’s no denying that it’s still a 15-year old truck. The company recently teased the 2022 Frontier and it is expected to be the biggest change since its inception, especially in terms of aesthetics. The truck has proven its might in the past, but the styling is clearly dated and is probably the only reason for the Frontier’s dwindling sales. The 2022 Frontier is all set to debut on February 4, 2021, and here’s what you can expect from it.

Update 2-4-2020 The new, 2022 Nissan Frontier has finally be revealed. We’ll be updating this review in the coming days, but until then, you can check it out and learn all you need to know in our feature debut article!

2020 Nissan GT-R (X) 2050 Concept - Godzilla of the Future

2020 Nissan GT-R (X) 2050 Concept - Godzilla of the Future

The GT-R (X) is a wild, futuristic idea with a brain-to-computer transmitter

The Nissan GT-R (X) 2050 is a futuristic concept car based on the R35-generation Nissan GT-R. But unlike the production model, the GT-R (X) 2050 wasn’t designed by Nissan. This concept was penned by Jaebum Choi, a student from the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California. Choi, who also started an internship at Nissan Design America based the styling of his "wearable machine," a futuristic concept that would have the ability to connect to the human brain to provide better performance, on the latest-generation GT-R. As a result, Nissan decided to build a 1:1 scale model and show it to the world.
