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.

We hate to point out the obvious, but we’ve been waiting for the Nissan Titan’s replacement….for a while. Like, four years awhile. We aren’t complaining though, because there is no doubt Nissan has spent that time getting it exactly right, but now – we can’t wait for the big reveal (finally)!
After a partnership with Chrysler to sell version of Chrysler’s under-development new Ram pickup fell through, Nissan was left to start from square one and develop a fully-redesigned pickup from scratch. Because the Titan was never the best-seller Nissan had hoped for, the automaker threw out pretty much everything they knew about that truck.
The large pickup is making its way to the market at an important time. There’s no room for Nissan to miss the mark on this one, with the early success of the aluminum-based 2015 F-150 and the fuel-efficient mid-size Canyon and Colorado. Nissan’s new full-size pickup will have to make a statement in order to compete in this market, and we have no doubts that’s exactly what it will do.
Here at Nissan of Lake Charles, we can hardly wait to see what Nissan will unveil – but for now, we’ll have to be patient. Is it January yet?
