Upcoming Models from Nissan

Nissan Vmotion 2.0 Concept

Auto Show season is upon us, and with it comes numerous new concept vehicles and the unveiling of upcoming models. Nissan, always at the forefront of innovation, has a very exciting season before it – and Nissan has already debuted very exciting vehicles. Here are a couple cars that we at Nissan of Lake Charles are very excited about.

Vmotion 2.0 Concept

This January at the North American International Auto Show, Nissan revealed its Vmotion 2.0 Concept, and it definitely turned heads. Its sleek sedan design earned the auto show’s EyesOn Design Award for Design Excellence. Its exterior features sleek, yet edgy contours that sweep back from front to rear, and its interior takes luxurious styling to the next level with leather seats and wood floors. Furthermore, the Vmotion 2.0 includes Nissan’s state-of-the-art driver assist technologies: Nissan Intelligent Mobility with ProPILOT autonomous driving system.

Titan Warrior Concept

The Titan Warrior is imposing with its tough, rugged exterior that looks ready to take on any terrain. It also features advanced off-road technologies to match its sophisticated, rugged look – called “modern armor” by Nissan designers. Its tough style is matched by its performance capabilities, as the Titan Warrior Concept features a Cummin’s® Turbo Diesel V8 engine, a six-speed Aisin transmission, and special off-road suspension.

How You Can Save Money When You Buy a Nissan Altima

2017 Nissan Altima

The Nissan Altima is a fantastic family car, but it is also well-suited to first-time car buyers who are on a tight budget. Not only does it offer the latest in safety technology (such as a class-exclusive predictive forward collision warning system), it is also offered at a lower starting price than competitors like the Camry (more than $500 cheaper for the base model) and gets a better fuel economy rating at 39 miles per gallon on the highway (6 mpg better than the Camry).*

It’s clear that you can save money when you buy a Nissan Altima—in the actual cost of the car, in trips to the gas station, and in avoiding costly accidents (the 2017 Nissan Altima was named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick Plus winner). But how you’ll spend those savings? That part is up to you.

Here are some ways that young Altima buyers spend their savings:

  • Paying for college textbooks with the money saved due to a smaller down payment
  • Buying healthier and more diverse groceries (or splurging on Friday night pizza) with the money saved by less frequent fuel fill-ups
  • Starting a savings account, IRA, or other investment opportunity with the monthly savings from driving a more affordable and accident-avoiding vehicle

Best Situations to Own a Truck

Nissan Titan Off-Road

 

There are plenty of benefits to owning a truck, but some of them are only prevalent when disaster strikes. Natural disasters and major life events could leave sedan owners out in the cold. Truck owners, on the other hand, could find themselves quite comfortable in the elements. Here are some of the best situations to own a truck in from us here at Nissan of Lake Charles.

Mud

Natural disasters, such as mudslides, can be devastating on those who suddenly have no form of transportation. Fortunately, tough trucks like the Nissan Frontier, Titan, and Titan XD, can roll through mud like it’s nothing. While a midsize sedan could find itself stuck rather quickly, a truck’s four-wheel drive system will allow it to plow forward with little resistance.

Flooding

Cars may be heavy, but they aren’t designed to travel through deep water. Many models are low to the ground and don’t offer the clearance required to travel through flood waters safely. That’s where trucks come in.

Full-size pickups offer the ground clearance to traverse flood waters with relative ease, depending on the level of flooding in the area.

Moving

Moving house tends to be a major life event most people only experience a handful of times. Owning a truck can make moving much easier and cheaper, as using the bed to haul possessions saves on moving truck costs. Plus, there’s no need to worry about having the truck back at a certain time or on a specific day!
