Nissan has a long history of producing award-winning vehicle of all types, and the 2017 model year is no exception. At the 2017 Ruedas ESPN Awards, the Nissan Rogue Sport and Nissan Titan XD both took home top honors in different categories. To top things off, Nissan itself won the coveted “Manufacturer of the Year” award.
The 2017 Ruedas ESPN Awards were presented at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, and it was a night full of accolades for Nissan. The all-new Rogue Sport was named “Vehicle of the Year” and also took top place in the “Best CUV” category. Additionally, the Titan XD earned the award for “Best Diesel Pickup.” In each of these categories, Nissan came up against plenty of stiff competition. But in the end, only one could come out on top, and the victor was Nissan.
“The portfolio of Nissan vehicles available in the US Market is today better than ever,” said Jaime Florez, director of Ruedas ESPN. If there was any doubt that now was a great time to get behind the wheel of a new Nissan vehicle, we think it’s safe to say this clears things up.

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.
Even though it’s called the Rogue, the 2014 edition of Nissan’s popular crossover isn’t trying to hide in the shadows. In fact, it’s a pretty hard vehicle to miss—completely redesigned with a beautiful, gracefully curving exterior, a vastly improved interior, and tons of standard features and advanced technology. All that hard work on the 2014 Rogue recently paid off yet again, as the IIHS named the Rogue a Top Safety Pick+.
“Nissan has a long-standing commitment to safety and innovation, and this IIHS rating is a very important milestone for the all-new 2014 Rogue,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, U.S.A, Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA). “Rogue is the second best-selling vehicle in Nissan’s lineup, and with its standard and available safety features, we’re bringing a new level of affordable technologies and innovations to a growing segment looking for fresh ideas.”
The criteria to capture a Top Safety Pick+ Rating have gotten even stricter in recent years, making the Rogue’s accomplishment even more impressive. Plus, with an Advanced Air Bag System, technology like the Easy Fill Tire Alert, and systems like Active Ride Control, this crossover has what it takes to keep you and your family safe, no matter what.
