Nissan set to debut three bespoke TITAN XD models, GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package at 2015 SEMA Show

Nissan will make an explosive appearance at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. The carmaker is set to debut a trio of 2016 Nissan TITAN XD units and the 2016 GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package for the GT-R Nismo.

The three Titan XD 2016 models include a bespoke model that was designed by Nissan in cooperation with SEMA itself. The collaboration resulted from a “measuring session” that SEMA and Nissan undertook early this year, and involved a PRO-4X model that was later on modified by SEMA.

Nissan had the truck conveyed to SEMA’s main base in Diamond Bar, California in September, and it was since customized extensively by the Association. Unlike the other two models, this bespoke model will take a place in the show’s Grand Lobby.

2018 SEMA Show: Nissan to display five one-off vehicles including a 370Z Project Clubsport 23

The 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas is about to start and Nissan won't itself be outdone by other carmakers. In fact, Nissan will be gracing the 2018 SEMA Show with five one-off vehicles, including a 400-hp Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 that combines the latest technology with the Z heritage aesthetics.

Leading the charge for the Japanese carmaker is the Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 project car that combines a number of OEM, aftermarket and bespoke fabricated parts. A track-only project car, the Project Clubsport 23 makes use of performance parts that have been tested and developed in Motorsports, as sourced from most respected suppliers. As Nissan Motorsports and MA Motorsports intended, the Project Clubsport 23 is an ongoing parts development platform, which means its looks might be different months from the 2018 SEMA Show.

The Nissan Motorsports Project Clubsport 23 was based on a 2012 Nissan 370Z NISMO deprived of its original 350-hp 3.7-liter VQ37VHR engine. In its stead is a factory 400-hp 3.0-liter VR30DDTT twin-turbo V6 mill. The main challenge in the project car was how to mate a VR30DDTT engine to the 370Z NISMO's six-speed manual transmission – something that has never been done before. To achieve this MA Motorsports developed a new clutch disc, cover and flywheel assembly and installed a NISMO GT LSD Pro-Carbon two-way differential cooled by an MA Motorsports Differential Cooler.

Nissan introduces Frontier and Titan Midnight Edition models just in time for solar eclipse

Amid the excitement related to the solar eclipse, Nissan revealed two of its pickups, both in a special edition livery. Instead of waiting for auto shows, Nissan chose to debut its new models in the United States on this auspicious day. The Japanese manufacturer has not introduced new models. Instead, it unveiled a Midnight Edition for the following models: Titan, Titan XD, and the Frontier.

For the Midnight Edition, expect to see a blacked out version of the cars. To be more specific, the Titan model will now get a black front grille, headlight surrounds, foglight trim. And for the Titan XD, it gets additional blacked out fender louvers too. Smaller details like the mirror caps, door handles, badges and step rails also get a darker shadow like shade too. Other than that, they will now have a set of black painted 20-inch wheels to complete the midnight look. If you are not a big fan of all-black cars and would rather see some contrast, you can order the car in a different finish such as Gun Metallic gray and Pearl White.

The Midnight Edition package is not just limited to the car’s exterior. In the cabin, you will find Charcoal black accents together with black floor mats.

Nissan’s GT-R Nismo is one of the most expensive cars the Japanese automaker has made in its history, the 200 mile-per-hour supercar is not like any other Nissan car that everybody can get their hands on. However, Lego has fulfilled our dreams to own one to a certain extent, by designing a small-scale version of the Nismo supercar. The nice thing about this is that you do not have to know how to drive to own one.

It was Firas Abu-Jaber, an expert brick builder, who came up with the Lego version of the GT-R Nismo. The reason why he built this was because it is a favourite car of his, so he took time and studied the supercar, and went into proper detail - from the front fascia, wheels, the rear, and even under the hood, to start his project. What he built was so detailed that he even replicated the GT-R’s engine.

As usual, Firas made use of the red Technic gear pieces to add details like the tail lights according to The Brothers Brick website. As you open the hood, the doors, and the roof, you will find some pretty cool detailing inside like a full on interior. This brick model might be of interest to you, but you won’t be able to get this from your local Lego store as it is not an official kit.

Nissan has unveiled the facelifted 2017 X-Trail earlier this month. The timely upgrade gave the X-trail an enhanced front end, self-driving tech and a revised interior. In-house tuner Nismo (abbreviated from Nissan Motorsport International Limited) will now give the X-trail a sportier look with a newly issued Nismo Performance Package. However, the downside of this package is that it only offers aesthetic upgrades and does not feature mechanical improvements for the SUV.

This is not what we expected when Nissan revealed that they would be producing more Nismo models, but we can deal with another body kit produced for Rogue, or as they name it in Japan and Europe, the X-trail. This package will be exclusively released for Japan consumers so far. As an expected Nismo product, the body is finished in white paired with the black and red details for contrast like the front and back diffusers and the side skirts. T

he radiator grille is now enclosed by gloss back panels and bolder bumper up front. Moreover, there's a brand new lower bumper spoiler spotted at the back with integrated parking sensors and dual chrome exhaust pipes. A bundle of exclusive 2 tone wheels and chrome handle contributes to the more dynamic look. It can be observed that inside the cabin, there are no hyped changes, the flat-bottom steering wheel is included in the latest addition for the SUV but no sports seats or pedals are offered with the package which is kind of disappointing.

As it is now, Nissan Motor’s Nismo road car operations is a relatively a small business, with an annual volume of 15,000 performance-oriented cars. However, Nissan is giving Nismo fans and enthusiasts a genuine reason to rejoice – the Japanese carmaker is expanding this business with an aim to make more Nismo models available in more auto markets around the world.

Nissan launched the Nismo sub-brand to its mainstream model lineup in 2013, and since then, customers have gained better access to sportier performance and styling, as derived from and developed through Nismo’s motorsports activities. The Nismo sub-brand essentially injects a high level of sportiness – both in styling and performance – into Nissan’s global car lineup. Nevertheless, the number of Nismo cars produced has been limited, and may not be enough to satisfy the thirst of customers for such products around the world. This is the main reason why Nissan is creating a new unit – Nismo Cars Business Department.

The Nismo Cars Business Department is a new unit that is a part of Autech Japan, Inc., one of the companies under the Nissan group that assembles converted vehicles. This new unit will be combining the expertise of Nissan group companies -- Nissan, Autech, Nissan Motorsports International and other group units – to plan and develop more products in a much shorter time.

Last week, Nissan performance brand, Nismo, disclosed to the public its incoming road car expansion strategy that will be done to replicate the success that was met by the BMW M long ago. The Japanese automaker will embark on a plan that will be able to duplicate the number of units that will bear the Nismo performance badge, says Takao Katagiri, CEO of Nissan Motorsports International Co- the Nissan subsidiary overseeing Nismo.

The Nismo line-up has already sold 15,000 vehicles under its belt, and the Japanese automaker is hoping to increase their releases in the coming years. The planned expansion would involve fresh body types aside from their current roundabout of sports cars and SUVs, along with trucks like the Nissan Titan, crossovers and not forgetting the minivans. It will also involve the chain of Nismo dealership and driving academies found in different U.S. cities.

So far, the Japanese automaker has only released 4 vehicles under the Nismo brand in the US, including the loveable GT-R, 370Z, Juke and the newly rolled out Sentra, as well as the other units that include the Patrol SUV and Note hatchbacks that are made available outside the U.S. territory. Nissan is aiming to boost Nismo sales by about 100,000 units by the early 2020s, which is when we’re expected to welcome the line-up of new Nismo releases including the Maxima Nismo, Rogue Nismo and Titan Nismo (if the circulating reports are true).

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.

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.

Nissan has announced the pricing for its new commercial pickup line. So for those who have been waiting for Nissan’s official price list (plus a little more info), read on…

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the Titan S Single Cab is as low as $29,580 while the Titan XD Gas single cab 4x2 is at $31,090. The Single Cab configuration is available in both the Titan XD (S/SV grade levels) as well as in the Titan half-ton models.

The single cab normally makes ten percent of sales in the full size truck category. In fact, this is the first time for Nissan Titan to join the commercial pickup segment. Nevertheless, the new Single Cab will finally become part of the new market usually intended for crew cab configuration models.

A few days before the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show finally kicks off, Nissan is previewing its event lineup with an off-site display of its 2017 Nissan Sentra NISMO in the downtown area. Yes, the Nissan Sentra now has a NISMO variant.

It was nearly five years ago when a sporty version of the Sentra hit the market. This version was the Sentra SE-R. Moving forward to this day, the Sentra NISMO is the latest in Nissan’s compact performance sedans, bringing with it the motorsports-inspired NISMO factory-tuned performance. Further increasing the appeal of the Sentra NISMO is the fact that it is available at less than $25,000 when it arrives in January 2017.

So, there you have it, an inexpensive, practical car with a sporty personality and a few twists. Michael Bunce, vice president for Product Planning at Nissan North America, remarked that the Sentra NISMO would be popular in Southern California and around the United States, given its performance specs without the hefty price. Of course, the 2017 Nissan Sentra is offered in other grade levels: S, SV, SR, SR Turbo and SL.

Nissan has finally unveiled its racer for the upcoming 2017 season of the Japanese Super GT Series – the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500. Apparently, Nissan has made a number of design changes on its Super GT racer, seeking to repeat its feat in 2014 and 2015 when it won the championship. While Nissan failed to capture its third championship this year, it developed and designed the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 to enable it to recapture the crown while still abiding by the rules and regulations of the Japanese Super GT series.

The Japanese Super GT racing series has always been enjoyable and fun to watch not just because of speed and dynamics involved, but also because this competition features some of the hottest looking cars in the planet. Looking forward, the 2017 season of the Japanese Super GT is really something to look forward to because of some changes in the aero rules.

Apparently, the race cars competing in the Super GT have become too fast and too stable, and that has rendered the racing action seemingly boring. So, organizers decided to make the action more thrilling and more enjoyable -- by tweaking the regulations to compel manufacturers to reduce the downforce on their GT500 cars by 25 percent, thereby theoretically reducing cornering speeds. While this obliged carmakers to revise the looks of their racers, the apparent visual changes have resulted to better- and hotter-looking race vehicles.

In 2007, when Nissan first introduced the R35 Nissan GT-R at the 2007 Los Angeles Auto Show, the car carried with intense power and a price tag of $78,000. Up to this day, such a price tag would leave car enthusiasts and collectors at a loss. However, for the power and perks that this car brings along, many will agree that its price tag is worth it.

Just recently, Nissan introduced to the world the newest successor of the Godzilla bloodline and its flagship GT-R, the 2017 GT-R Nismo. Just like its predecessors and the version before it, this year’s GT-R Nismo will carry with it a price tag for the gods.

The 2017 GT-R Nismo comes with a starting price of $174,990, which is a $25,000 increase from the 2016 GT-R Nismo’s price tag. Albeit its price tag, Nissan assures that it will still be an attractive proposition because the GT-R Nismo comes with a couple of updates which will entice the customers to avail one. And earlier this year, Nissan gave the standard GT-R updates and some standard facelifts. And guess what? The same updates will also be given to the new GT-R Nismo. Basically, the GT-R Nismo will receive a modern day facelift, a modernization that has been overdue for Nissan’s performance flagship.

The Nürburgring race course in Germany is famous for being one of the most challenging, if not the longest, tracks around the world. It is here where the 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO made its official debut, the same place where the performance of the Nissan GT-R was developed, tuned, and honed.

According to Hiroshi Tamura, the GT-R NISMO puts high value on the ”R” in its name as it provides the link to racing, making it home on any racing circuit. It is also able to deliver what can be expressed as the higher of excitement levels and exhilaration for its driver.

Hiroshi Tamura is Chief Product Specialist for the GT-R and the GT-R NISMO. Chief Tamura added that using the 2017 GT-R as the initial point, the GT-R NISMO is now a well-balanced machine and delivers increased performance plus an increased overall premium feel.

The fastest drift, as Guinness World Records, has recently been set by a specially tuned 2016 Nissan GT-R NISMO. This new record was set by Japanese drift champion and the D1 Grand Prix series winner Masato Kawabata, drifting at a max speed of 304.96 km/hr at Fujairah International Airport in the UAE.

Kawabata broke the previous record set by Jakub Przygoński of Poland. It should be noted that the specially tuned 2016 Nissan GT-R NISMO used for the record attempt was configured by GReddy Trust, with extensive testing done at the Fuji Speedway facility in Japan.

Moreover, Kawabata was personally involved in the test. GReddy Trust prepped the car for optimal agility and stability as well as superior handling. Nissan particularly chose the Fujairah International Airport for the attempt since its 3km airstrip was long enough to host the event.

Nissan has taken the veils off the new 2017 TITAN Crew Cab at the 2016 New York Auto Show. This latest version of the TITAN – to be sold starting summer 2016 -- will be powered by 5.6-liter Endurance V8 gasoline engine that develops 390 hp and is mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

This Nissan engine will also power the Nissan TITAN XD V8 Gas and the 2017 Armada. Nissan will later equip the 2017 TITAN with a V6 gasoline engine. The Japanese carmaker plans to commence sales of the 2017 TITAN in the late summer of 2016 as a Crew Cab model.

The 2017 Nissan TITAN will later be available on Single and King Cab variants. Underpinned by a chassis separate from TITAN XD, the TITAN is around 14.7 inches shorter (at 228.1 inches in length) but is just as wide at 79.5 inches.

With a special photography release, Nissan North America, Inc. focuses the attention on the upcoming standard/half-ton version of TITAN at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. This move follows on the success of the redefined TITAN lineup's flagship XD unit.

According to Nissan Director of Product Planning for Trucks, SUVs, and Commercial Vehicles and Chief Product Specialist for TITAN and TITAN XD Rich Miller, there is a strong resemblance between the TITAN and the TITAN XD especially because of their rugged exterior styling.

The difference between the two is that the former will mostly compete in the full-size pickup segment while the latter is widely intended to bridge the capability gap between traditional half-ton and heavy-duty pickups. Miller added that the overall market for full-size trucks will be composed of 85 percent TITAN and TITAN XD.

How the new 2015 Nissan 370Z NISMO made its global debut is quite unusual as its arrival at ZDAYZ came as a surprise. Everyone was astonished as it was unveiled at this yearly event attended by those who either own or are fans of Nissan, Datsun and NISMO vehicles.

The mood at the gathering turned into a frenzy when the new 370Z NISMO model was shown and especially when its specs were announced. Aside from the improvements inside and outside, it came with a broader lineup that includes new 370Z NISMO Tech grade as well as both 6-speed manual and 7-speed automatic transmissions.

Nissan Chief Planning Officer and Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said that the decision to have its world debut in front of this crowd composed of its “most loyal and enthusiast owners” was only fitting because the brand considers NISMO to be the “heart and soul” of its performance whether it’s driving on the track or on the road.

Nissan North America and Cummins have unveiled the latest speed-record challenger at the 2015 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. This vehicle is the MY2016 Nissan Titan XD powered by Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel.

However, the truck is still under development through "Project Triple Nickel," a moniker that refers to the 555 lb.-ft. torque rating of a stock Titan XD.

Cummins and Nissan North America commenced making modifications on the 2016 Titan XD weeks ago, and those revisions included the installation of a special lowered suspension, Mickey Thompson tires, an Ultra Shield seat, salt-flat style disc wheel covers and a Stroud Safety parachute.
