Nissan is shaking things up this year before the Los Angeles Auto Show. Rather than waiting for the auto show, the Japanese carmaker has decided to take the cover off two 2017 Nissan models—the 2017 Nissan Versa Note and the 2017 JUKE Black Pearl Edition.
“The Nissan new product onslaught for the 2017 model year is so extensive, we’re bringing out the new Versa Note and JUKE Black Pearl early,” said Michael Bunce, vice president for Product Planning with Nissan North America. “The four latest additions to the lineup follow our ongoing ‘Year of the Truck’ campaign, which has seen the introduction of an all-new Armada, new Rogue, revised Pathfinder, and new Titan half-ton and Titan Single Cab.”
The 2017 Versa Note showcases a new design and a variety of interior changes that were driven by customer input. With these changes, Nissan is hoping the Versa Note will become even more popular this year.
The JUKE Black Pearl Edition is looking to appeal to those consumers that love aftermarket looks. Nissan has turned the JUKE SV into a limited-edition model that has exclusive white bumper accents and trim, along with a number of black-and-white accents in the cabin.
These models are the first of four new Nissan vehicles that will debut during the LA Auto Show. Along with the JUKE Black Pearl Edition and the 2017 Versa Note, the Japanese carmaker also unveiled a new NISMO product on November 15th and the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition model during a press conference on November 16th.
The Nissan NISMO lineup is pretty cool. From fine-tuning sports cars like the 370Z and GT-R to revolutionizing more “normal” vehicles like the Juke and Sentra, each NISMO vehicle brings something special to the table. But what if the fun didn’t stop there? Now, with Nissan’s new NISMO Facebook Mashup challenge, it doesn’t have to!
For a limited time, Nissan is running a special, entertaining marketing campaign on their “Mashup 1” Facebook page. The campaign asks for you to comment with your favorite mashup between a NISMO and another Nissan vehicle—then you just have to sit back and wait for Nissan’s artists to bring your creation to life.
Whether you want to see the Cube with a GT-R flair or the Titan crossed with the chic of the 370Z, hurry over to the “Mashup 1” page to submit your comment today. Then come talk to us about your dream Nissan vehicle over at Cronic Nissan. Maybe we’ll even find you that special car hiding out somewhere in our inventory.
The 2013 Tokyo Motor Show kicked off Friday—and Nissan is dominating the early news with the release of the stunning 2015 Nissan GT-R NISMO as well as the 2015 standard GT-R. The standard GT-R received a refresh just last year, and thus the changes for the 2015 model are rather small, but the NISMO simply screams onto the scene, easily making up for the standard model’s lack of excitement for the year.
Running under the tagline “Zero Competition,” there’s just no ignoring Nissan’s testosterone-fueled ultra sports car. The NISMO whizzed its way around Nurburgring in 7:08.679, prompting Nissan to actually bring the very car that circled the ‘Ring to Tokyo to show off. “Records fall and dreams come true with the debut of the GT-R NISMO,” as a Nissan press release stated.
The NISMO thrusts out 591 horsepower and 479 lb.-ft. of torque, which are both substantial upgrades from the already impressive base model—545 horsepower and 463 lb.-ft. of torque. Official pricing is not announced yet, but it’s expected that you’ll be able to buy this “ultimate iteration” of Nissan’s super sports car for under $200,000.
The NISMO is set to go on sale first in Japan in February 2014 before hitting US and European markets later in the year. For more information about the NISMO or any of the other breathtaking vehicles in the Nissan lineup, come see us at Cronic Nissan today!
