Who Let The Dogs Out? Not Nissan - Say Hello To The Rogue Dogue Concept

 

We consider the dogs as man's best friends, and sometimes we even look at these furry animals as family. Starting now, all that we will be raving about is regarding Fidos- sorry cat people, maybe next time. The Nissan fam just revealed that they are dog lovers with their latest invention, the Rogue Dogue Concept.

While we see the dogs as worthwhile companions when it comes to cruising the roads, going to the beach or hiking the mountains, we cannot help but sometimes think of the cons in bringing our furry friends on a ride: saliva and hair sticking everywhere in the car, possibility of urine and poop decorating the interior and so on. But Dennis McCarthy, the car coordinator for the Fast and Furious movies, built a vehicle that directly caters to the puppet's needs sans the nitrous setup as seen in the movies. The concept car conceptualized as a 2017 Nissan Rogue SL with the Platinum Reserve package with quilted leather inserts and tan leather sets.

Fiat, PSA, Infiniti and Nissan will skip the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show

The Frankfurt Motor Show is considered as one of the major auto shows, not just in Europe, but also in the world. Despite being one of the biggest events in the auto industry, the Frankfurt Motor Show will be missing at least nine major auto brands when it opens its latest edition in September 2017.

All German brands – volume or premium marques – are expected to be on full force on what is considered as one of the major shows in their home country. Sadly, though, two of PSA Group’s brands won’t take part in the 2017 edition of the show. While PSA Group has just reached an agreement to acquire German brand Opel – and its twin Vauxhall marque -- from General Motors, it has decided not to field any vehicles from its Peugeot and DS brands. However, PSA Group’s Citroen brand will be going to Frankfurt in September, since the marque is supporting a product launch, according to a spokesman from the French manufacturer.

Also skipping the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show are three brands from Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Italian brands Fiat and Alfa Romeo as well as American brand Jeep won’t show their wares at Frankfurt this year.

Nissan GT-R Police Pursuit 23 will make your Copzilla fantasies come alive at the NYIAS

You can run, but you can’t hide. No action-packed movie would be complete without a police car chasing the villain. But in reality, hot pursuits such as these have been taking place--- not just between a cop and criminal but also by those guilty of over speeding or violating certain traffic rules.

Interestingly, Nissan has reimagined a police vehicle for a certain fictional Skyline Police Department. This came in just in time for the 2017 New York Auto Show, which is happening next week.

Dubbed as “Copzilla” (with a code name Police Pursuit No.23), this Nissan GT-R packs an incredible 565hp (421kW) and 469 lb-ft (635Nm) powerful torque. It’s the same 3.8-liter biturbo V6 stock engine like any Nissan GT-R but it’s been added with coil overs and a new set of 22-inch spiked wheels. Very fitting to the “Copzilla’s” highly menacing police livery!

The newest member of the GT-R family is here! Nissan will be premiering the GT-R Track Edition at the 2017 New York Auto Show that is scheduled to take place next month. The Track Edition is positioned between the base Touring version and the range topper Nismo.

For the Track Edition, Nissan is asking for $18,000 more than its entry level model which is currently priced at $109,990 MSRP. But they didn’t give it that rate just because they want to. Customers will be delighted because the third member of the GT-R family will be acquiring several features of the Nismo. Some of which are the 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, Nismo rear fenders, and a suspension setup like that of the range topper.

The 2017 model will be having the same engine specifications as the Touring model - a biturbo 3.8 liter V6. These provide 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, with a six-speed dual clutch gearbox.

If you’re a pet lover with strong preference for our canine friends, then this newest concept vehicle from Japanese carmaker Nissan would be to your liking. In fact, a dog-lover would want Nissan to turn this concept into a production vehicle in the nearest time as possible.

Nissan is introducing the all-new Nissan X-Trail 4Dogs Concept, which has been designed according to the preferences of most dog owners in the United Kingdom. The X-Trail 4Dogs concept was basically an offshoot of a recent survey conducted by The Kennel Club -- the largest organization for promoting dog welfare in the UK – and covering more than 1,300 dog owners.

According to the survey, around 98.7 percent of the survey respondents use their vehicles to transport their dog with 88.7 percent of dog owners doing that at least once a week. Moreover, around 90.5 percent of dog owners transport their pets in the car when travelling for at least 10 minutes. These indicate how important a vehicle is when transporting dogs from one place to another.

Since the Qashqai SUV was first released by Nissan in 2013, it has gone on to become the best-selling crossover in Europe. During the early part of this year, there were reports that the Japanese automaker may be releasing a revised version. That appears to be true as Nissan has officially unveiled the 2017 Nissan Qashqai Facelift during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Qashqai owners know that one of the benefits of this model is that it allows for a more confident drive. Even with the number of modifications, the new version is able to continue having that excellent outstanding performance. Because of the improvements done to the steering system, damping system, and the suspension system, the new Qashqai is able to offer a road experience that is more refined than usual.

With better utilization of absorption materials plus the glass in the rear being made thicker, it’s ensured that noise experienced in the cabin is lowered. The selection of the different-sized wheels help as well since they have all been optimized in terms of aerodynamics in order to maximize the efficiency.

It’s a small hatch with a big bang! And we mean literally a big loud bang. After all, the new Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition just unfurled at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show features the latest in premium in-car audio technology.

As you might have guessed and as the moniker indicates, this edition of the fourth generation Nissan Micra supermini is loaded with premium audio technology courtesy of one of the leaders in this aspect, BOSE. Made to celebrate the carmaker’s partnership with BOSE, the Nissan Micra BOSE Personal Edition – derived from the Tekna trim of the supermini -- promises to bring an immersive listening experience coming from all angles, especially for the driver.

This is because this special edition of the supermini features BOSE Personal sound system, which the audio specialist has specifically designed and developed for the Nissan Micra. This Personal sound system is accompanied by twin BOSE UltraNearfield speakers that have been integrated into the headrest of the driver’s seat.

A number of people have long wanted to know when the next generation of the Nissan Leaf would be released. After all, since it was first launched on the market back in 2010, different versions have been released almost annually.

The wait appears to be over as Senior Manager of Leaf and Electric Vehicles Tim Gallagher confirmed that the new Leaf will be unveiled to the public in September with sales expected to begin in the later part of the year. Gallagher however did not reveal any other details, leaving all of us trying to predict what the new model could offer.

For starters, Nissan has said that the new Leaf will be able to drive itself autonomously on a single lane road. This means it may look similar to the IDS concept that was presented by the brand during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. Nissan had previously confirmed as well that the range will be at least 200 miles (321 km). That may not be enough but it appears to work for now.

During the The Grand Tour’s final episode, host Richard Hammond did what few people expected him to do. He had a Porsche 918 Spyder race against what appears to be standard Nissan Patrol.

You would think you know the result of this battle but the thing is, this is not your typical Nissan SUV. It is fitted with a turbocharged engine, like the one inside the GT-R. Rather than the usual 285 hp (212 kW), this engine is capable of 1,900 hp (1,416 kW). As such, it resulted in a maximum speed of 205 mph (329 km/h).

You probably know where we are going with this so it won’t be surprising then to know that when the race was done on the streets of Dubai, the Nissan Patrol dominated and left the Porsche 918 far behind. No wonder the internet is now calling it as the “918 Killer.”

A new body configuration will be added to Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD large pickup trucks starting in the 2017 model year. The Japanese carmaker announced at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show that its Crew Cab and Single Cab body configurations for the Titan and Titan XD are now joined by the new King Cab body.

With the announcement, Nissan’s Titan and Titan XD lineup is now available in three cabs and three bed length configurations. Both the Titan King Cab and Titan XD King Cab are available in either 4x4 and 4x2 drive. Three grade levels -- S, SV and PRO-4X – are also offered.

The King Cab configuration is basically a cross between the Crew Cab and Single Cab. Its cabin is smaller than on the Crew Cab but is still larger than the Single Cab. Moreover, the King Cab still offers seating for rear passengers, just like the Crew Cab. According to Nissan, the King Cab version of the half-ton Titan and the three-quarter ton Titan XD will be able to accommodate up to six occupants – three in the somewhat cramp rear cabin and another three on the front row. The front row usually seats two – the driver and a passenger.

What does Chevy’s all–new Redline Series have to say about this? Nissan always takes the lead in designing trim packages for self-expression. As soon as Nissan first came out with the Maxima Midnight Edition last 2016, it quickly gained a positive feedback from its customers. To keep up with the increasing demand for more varieties, Nissan introduces the Midnight Edition package for its Sentra, Rogue, Pathfinder, Murano, and Altima models.

According to Nissan’s Eric Ledieu, about eighty-five percent of the entire SR sales has been accounted for the Maxima SR after it initially introduced the black-on-black exterior trim package. Ledieu added that although the positive audience reaction was quite unexpected at that time, they made it immediately available on the Maxima SR. After all, increasingly more people want to have that “sporty look” with dark accents and dark wheels.

The latest “Midnight Edition” basically consists of black trim accessories but it now has broader and more numerous choices for exterior body paints. Depending on the model, there will be several red variations available including Red Alert, Cayenne and Coulis. The black variants will come in Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black and Super Black. Other than red and black, customers can also avail the Midnight Edition with a Pearl White exterior paint finish.

As it is, the new Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck is already a mean machine ready to take on anything on the road or even off it. But of course, a customer could always make the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X pickup truck much meaner and more full of character – by availing of Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories as well as aftermarket components.

To show how customers could spice up the meaningful character of the Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X, the Japanese carmaker – through its Nissan Motorsports division -- is bringing the pickup truck to the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. However, this pickup truck – a 2017 Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X Crew Cab in Super Black finish -- has been configured and modified with Nissan Genuine Parts and Accessories and available aftermarket parts. Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this modified Nissan Titan XD Pro-4X is also outfitted with a prototype suspension kit and exhaust system.

Dubbed as the new Motorsports Titan XD, this tweaked pickup truck will be fully shown to the public at Chicago's McCormick Place from February 11 to 20, 2017.

British funeral home Leverton & Sons is out there to prove that eco-friendliness can be achieved even at your final journey. Together with Brahms Electric Vehicles, the UK-based funeral directors have converted a Nissan Leaf into an Eco-Hearse. Indeed, saving the earth will never go out of style and it will continue to live on even after you’ve drawn your last breath!

The eco-conscious funeral car has been replaced with a transparent panel so that friends and relatives of the dearly departed can take a good view of the casket. Brahms Electric Vehicles has freed the entire cabin space and extends it all the way to driver’s side to keep the coffin safe and secured. What’s more, the eco-hearse has been installed with a motor so that the floor deck can be adjusted up and down. This makes it more convenient to use during loading and unloading.

Interestingly, Brahms has developed a total of three Nissan Leaf funeral cars and has sold a couple of units already. In order for them to deliver a much cheaper price, the English company converts previously used Nissan Leaf examples instead of new ones.

With the Vmotion 2.0 Concept, Nissan hopes to show the future of its Intelligent Mobility technology and what direction its sedan design is headed. This concept vehicle was revealed by the brand through a press conference conducted during the 2017 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit.

The Vmotion 2.0 shows a good combination of an emotional design with an excellent sense of style. It offers enough room on the inside with features designed for comfort and technological systems integrated to it.

Overall length of the Vmotion 2.0 is at 191.3 in. (4,860 mm), making it shorter compared to the Altima. Meanwhile, the wheelbase measuring 112.2 in. (2,850 mm) is actually longer than the Altima, and even the Maxima. Excluding door mirrors, width is at 74.4 in. (1,890 mm), meaning it is lower than many of the brand’s sedans. The height of 54.3 in. (1,380 mm) gives it an appearance that exudes style.

It isn’t merely speculation anymore – Nissan is bringing the Qashqai mid-size crossover to the United States, but with a different name. In fact, Nissan has confirmed that this mid-size crossover will have its debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, widely known as the Detroit Auto Show.

As we have reported, Nissan intends for the Qashqai to fill the size gap between the smaller Juke and the larger Rogue. The addition of the Qashqai – the best-selling mid-size SUV in Europe -- as a complement to the Juke and the Rogue would allow Nissan to benefit from the seemingly insatiable hunger for SUVs in the US, where motorists have been switching from passenger cars to utility vehicles. While there is a real business case for the US launch of the Qashqai in the US, Nissan was expected to rename the SUV since American buyers might have some trouble pronouncing “Qashqai.”

Nissan did rename the Qashqai as the new Nissan Rogue Sport. Nissan eventually decided to use the Rogue moniker – with the Sport suffix – as it is already a known nameplate in the US. Mike Bunce, Nissan North America vice president of product planning, remarked that since Nissan managed to build a lot of equity on the Rogue, it only makes sense to piggyback on its popularity by renaming the Qashqai as the Rogue Sport.

Given the number of emission scandals that has grabbed the headlines last year, South Korea’s Ministry of Environment has banned the sales of certain Nissan, Porsche and BMW models. At least ten vehicles were found to have false emission test results, including Porsche’s Panamera S E-Hybrid, 911 GT3, Cayman GTS, 918 Spyder, Cayenne S E-Hybrid & Turbo and Macan S Diesel. Nissan’s Qashqai and Infiniti Q50 were also included as well as BMW’s X5 M SUV.

The three carmakers were fined a total of $5.9 million (equivalent to 7.7 billion won) for the 4,523 affected units sold and registered locally. According to Reuters, BMW and Nissan’s local divisions have said that something would be done to correct the fabricated documents to get back their certifications while Porsche, at this time, could not be reached to comment on the issue.

South Korea last year has banned a total of 32 models from Bentley, Audi and Volkswagen following the Dieslelgate cheating controversy. Volkswagen Group paid $15.98 million (or 17.8 billion won) to the South Korean government for falsification of documents. Among the vehicles banned since August 2016 are the Audi RS7 and the Volkswagen Golf.

This rumor is not something new – it has been lingering since 2015 – that Japanese carmaker Nissan is bringing its Qashqai to the United States. The best-selling mid-sized crossover in Europe could be coming to American soil with a possible debut this month at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, The Truth About Cars reports citing sources with knowledge of the matter.

Nissan has been experiencing increasing demand for the larger Rogue SUV in the US. With this, the Qashqai could be marketed in the US as a more compact and more economical version of the Rogue. In fact, the Nissan Qashqai features a number of similarities with the Rogue. While both are underpinned by the same architecture, the Qashqai is shorter than the Rogue by around 10 inches. Moreover, the wheelbase of the Qashqai is shorter than that of the Rogue by two inches. These dimensions meant that the Qashqai offers a smaller cargo space on the rear than the Rogue.

Should speculations be true, then Nissan would be able to slot the Qashqai between the Juke and the Rogue. Until now, there has been a gap between the Juke and Rogue. By introducing the Qashqai to North American customers, Nissan could effectively bridge this gap between the smaller Juke and the larger Rogue.

Driving on well-paved roads is pretty easy, especially if you are behind the wheel of a new Nissan X-Trail. Managing through some rough roads and rugged terrain would not be as easy, but the Nissan X-Trail should still be able to pull through. But, how about driving on a desert?

Sure enough, driving on a desert is not an easy thing to accomplish. It is basically because the desert is literally filled with sand. Traction, handling and steering are different when one is on the desert. Pushing the brakes too hard or slamming hard on the accelerator could push the tires into the sand. There is also the challenge of managing through giant sand dunes. Essentially, the fear of driving on the desert is related to getting stuck in the sand.

But this is not a concern with this Nissan X-Trail on the video. This Nissan X-Trail is not your ordinary X-Trail. After all, it is the Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior, which as its name indicates, is all-set and prepped to bring the driving battle to the desert. Obviously, this Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior features no wheels. It is fitted with a set of probably customized metal tracks that allow the Nissan X-Trail Desert Warrior to traverse the sandy desert sans any major difficulties. While there are tires suitable for challenging the desert, these metal tracks are more suitable in gaining better traction, improving handling and enhancing steering.

Customers in the European market are known for leaning towards style and with this in mind, Nissan has revealed the special LEAF Black Edition. While the production run of this limited edition will be restricted from March 2017 and until August 2017 only, the brand expects that it will set new standards when it comes to mass-marketed electric vehicles that have a premium and smooth style. With this edition to be sold solely in Europe, Nissan also disclosed that the first 1,000 customers will also have an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot installed, for free, which allows for a connection of a maximum of 8 devices.

The LEAF Black Edition is mainly based on the Acenta grade and brings with it a number of improvements to the style as well as an innovative design. On the interior, the use of the blue-stitched mats gives it that premium finish.

Some of the features include the NissanConnect EV telematics system which comes with the pioneering Around View Monitor technology fitted as standard. On the exterior, additions to the style include the rear roof spoiler and door mirror caps, both in black. There is also the privacy glass, illuminated entry guards, LED headlamps, and the alloy black 16-inch wheels.
