New 2012 Nissan Frontier

Boldly going where no truck has gone before is the versatile and rugged 2012 Nissan Frontier compact pickup.
Not much changes for the Frontier in 2012 except for a new Sport Appearance Package, which includes body-colored bumpers, fog lights, a dark grille, and 18-inch alloy wheels, that is available for the King Cab and crew-cab SV trims.
Competing with the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma, the 2012 Nissan Frontier is available in many different cab configurations, trim levels and powertrain options. Choose between S, SV, PRO-4X and SL trims; King and Crew Cabs, different bed lengths, two engines, and two- or four-wheel drive. A 261-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 generates 281 pounds-feet of torque, which is good for a 6,500 pound towing capacity, while a smaller 152-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder engine produces 171 pounds-feet of torque.
The Frontier also comes with a few helpful mechanical features. Hill start assist helps you from rolling back on inclines, while the Clutch Start/Cancel feature allows the Frontier models with a manual transmission to start the Xterra from a stop without using the clutch. For serious off-roaders, the Frontier PRO-4X model provides an electronic locking rear differential that sends equal power to the rear wheels boosting traction.
The 2012 Frontier is only available with a Crew or King cab, so it seats five passengers under any configuration. The Crew Cab standard bed is 4.7 feet in length, while the King Cab standard bed and Crew Cab long bed boast over six feet of length.  To better secure items in the bed, Nissan’s Utili-track Channel System utilizes five channels that run the length and width of the bed: two on the floor, one on each side wall and one on the header. A factory spray-on bedliner, roof rack, and locking tailgate add to the Frontier’s utility.
Inside the 2012 Frontier, a 10-speaker, 2-subwoofer Rockford Fosgate audio system, XM Satellite Radio, auxiliary input jack, and Bluetooth® connectivity are optional. Small side doors for the rear seats in the King Cab and multiple seating configurations and storage areas highlight the versatility of the Frontier’s interior.
In terms of safety, the 2012 Nissan Frontier features all-disc antilock brakes, LATCH child seating, active front head restraints, and an electronic stability control system. Dual-stage front airbags, driver and front-passenger seat-mounted side-impact airbags and roof-mounted curtain airbags for side-impact and rollover head protection all come standard.
With so many ways to get it right, the 2012 Nissan Frontier pushes the boundaries of what is possible in the compact pickup segment.
Top-quality Nissan Frontier Grills cannot be found everywhere. Other places claim they feature the best names but ultimately the only thing they “feature” is false promises and knock-off quality that falls apart.

Nissan Announces Russian Expansion

Nissan wants to be big in Russia. Right now, the brand brand lays claim to 5.9 percent of the Russian market, and the plan is to increase share to ten percent by 2016. That means moving nearly 500,000 vehicles a year, more than triple the 161,000 total units moved in 2011. Nissan plans to muscle up its production at its St. Petersburg plant, doubling output to 100,000 vehicles for 2014.

With upgrades to the press and plastics shops, the St. Petersburg facility will produce five different models at the same time, including the Qashqai, Teana, X-Trail and Murano. The revived Datsun brand will also figure into the plans. Datsun is being ramped up in growth markets as a low-cost boutique product developed and produced locally to appeal to an emerging customer base.

Nissan 370Z Crowdsourced Project Car Begins – Video
The first phase of the build saw the 370Z getting a huge power boost thanks to a twin turbo kit that puts more than 500 hp on tap. A Ti-C catback exhaust system with 2.75-inch diameter piping also went into the car, allowing the engine to better use its new forced induction system.
The boost in engine performance will be backed by a set of coilovers from KW with its Variant 3 model featuring a 2-stage valve system. KW has become a very popular brand in recent years amongst enthusiasts, and the 70-percent voting proved just that for the 370Z project. Lastly, Nissan upgraded the brakes on its 370Z.
This is just the beginning of the project car and we’ll keep an eye out as Nissan will undoubtedly focus on the project’s aerodynamics and interior next as they strive to build a great track car thanks to the feedback of its fans.
Nissan doesn’t know how to be boring. Through the years, the company has managed to churn out model after stylish model.

One of the main points of focus for these motorists almost always happens to be hooking up with a Nissan Spoiler. Whether it’s for eye-catching looks or for a modicum of aerodynamic assistance when burning it up on the blacktop, Nissan Spoilers have been a favorite custom weapon for almost two decades. We know that when you are on the hunt for your very own sizzling piece to lock onto your vehicle frontline quality is the main issue. At CARiD.com, nothing is more important.

It’s never easier, never more “user-friendly”, and never of a higher level of quality than it is here right here. You know the deal. Your Nissan explodes through the landscape once you decide it’s time to push the limits…
The 370Z promises to become one of Nissan’s most cherished models. The sleek contours along with the aggressive, Euro-influenced body-style mingle in perfectly with the raw power that opens up on the blacktop. When an added punch is needed for this package, you can’t do better than going with a Nissan 370Z Spoiler. CARiD.com is armed and ready with a variety of Nissan 370Z Spoilers built to outlast the competition.

2012 Nissan GT-R

Back when the
Nissan GT-R was first unveiled in late 2007, chief engineer Kazutoshi Mizuno said that not only had he built an "everyday supercar" that could jump to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and circle the Nurburgring in 7 minutes 38 seconds, but that he would continue to develop the car and announce new revisions every year. Well, Mizuno-san has been hard at work to make the latest version of Godzilla -- though called a 2012 in Japan, it will be called a 2013 once it hits our shores early next year -- even better. Not only did it reach 60 mph in 2.7 seconds in Nissan's testing, but it made the sprint through the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, a full 0.4 seconds faster than the 2012 model we tested in February, using 100 RON octane gas (96 octane using the U.S.' AKI ratings).
How is the the 2013 Nissan GT-R so quick? Partially thanks to the addition of even more power. The engine now generates 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque -- both going up by 15 from the 2012's 530 and 448 -- and produces beefier top end torque response right up to the 7000rpm redline. The 2013 revision also incorporates more efficient cooling ducts for the front brakes, slip-resistant seats, and a Track-Pack option that shaves over 200 pound in weight. Mizuno also stressed that his car generates these neck-snapping numbers by using an even leaner mixture of fuel than before.
Let the engine of your vehicle breathe freely with a quality air intake system. To satisfy the requirement of the most discerning enthusiasts, we've carefully handpicked world-class air intake systems manufactured by the top names in the industry. Engineered to optimize the air path between the air filter and the engine, air intakes provide your vehicle with the maximum airflow and you with a noticeable increase in horsepower and torque.

Nissan News

Nissan has released the first images of its new B-segment concept car, the Invitation. Set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor show next month, the car previews a new model that will sit between the Micra and Juke as the company returns to the traditional hatchback market.
The Invitation's DRG features a wide grille with a chrome accent that extends into the lamps, reminiscent of the Quest MPV. In profile its four-light DLO visually stretches the car's upper body as it extends to the centerline of each axle. Its lower body features large wheelarch flats which increase in radius and spill onto the door surface, where they interact with a character line that Nissan refers to as the ‘Squash Line', last seen on its Pivo 3 concept.
Inside, the extensive glasshouse is combined with white seat fabric giving a heightened feeling of space. The IP features multiple detail lines that run into the door cards and frame the central, digital stack that houses infotainment and climate controls. A circular pattern motif is repeated through the IP, from the pronounced dials to the large HVAC control.

2012 Nissan Leaf

2012 Nissan Leaf Review. Certain cars can’t accurately be judged on a choreographed press junket. Take a minivan for instance. To properly evaluate such a vehicle requires a road trip with a spouse and kids.  Likewise, an electric car must be lived with in order to be judged.  That said, I recently borrowed a Nissan Leaf for three days and set out to use it just as I would with any conventional internal combustion engine vehicle. That may sound simple enough for an urbanite, those for whom six miles is considered a commute, but for me it’s an 80 mile round trip.
And while Nissan may claim 100 miles as an EPA-rated ranged, they’ll also admit that the real-world distance is closer to 70 – just shy of the range I’d need to travel back and forth from work. LEAF DOESN’T MEET “JUST IN CASE” CRITERIA
Understandably, almost no one in my situation would seriously look at purchasing an electric car with such a limited range. But being the curious sort, I wanted to know: How far has the technology come and could an electric car work for someone like me? 
After all, most Americans buy cars for the just in case factor. As in, it has all-wheel drive just in case it snows, or it as a third row just in case they need to drive their kids and their kids’ friends to the mall. In short, these features are no different than a 400-hp V8 in a Mustang. It may only be used once a week, or even less, but that’s the reason they bought the car.For the American car buyer, a 300-mile range and the ability to double it with a quick stop at a gas station has become the norm, and in order to achieve mainstream acceptance, EVs need to do the same.
An official product launch with such a car would have carefully planned routes with chase cars should I get stranded and a long list of phone numbers of PR folks to assist me should I get lost. Not this time. Upon picking up the car I was given a special trickle charger that plugs into a conventional 120-volt household outlet, as well as a phone number of an emergency towing company.
Treat your vehicle with respect, and do not neglect its cargo area. After all, it's one of those areas that suffer a lot of abuse. Every time when you throw in your gulf clubs or your toolbox, pile groceries or take your beloved pet on a trip, you risk to seriously damage the cargo area carpeting. Stains, rips, debris, and mud don't go well with the factory floor carpeting, and you don't have to tolerate all that. In our extensive selection of cargo liners you'll easily find the product that will suit you needs. Need proofs? Read over 10 cargo liners and trunk mats reviews with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars, and choose the level of protection that is perfect for your vehicle.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

2013 Nissan Pathfinder engine confirmed, big deal debuting in Big Apple.
There is a lot to like about the Pathfinder Concept Nissan unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The thinly disguised showcar foregoes the body-on-frame construction of the current Pathfinder for a weight savings of about 500 pounds. Nissan also promises fuel economy improvement of about 25 percent with the production model, which would be no small feat.
Motor Trend reports that Nissan has confirmed that the 2013 Pathfinder will feature a 3.5-liter V6. That makes sense considering the Pathfinder's all-new sibling, the Infiniti JX35, will also feature the same V6. Nissan has yet to divulge any details about the Pathfinder mill, but we do know that the JX35 will boast 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. Nissan has also apparently told MT that it has big plans for April's New York Auto Show. Nissan will reportedly unveil a completely vehicle at the show that has never been seen by outsiders. Us? We're not sure, but our best guess is it'll be the 2013 Altima.
We refuse to carry nothing but the best quality Nissan Accessories and Parts at a great value, so you always have the resources necessary to customize your model the right way. From the brightest Nissan headlights to the sharpest refined spoilers, the Nissan parts you require are right here, just waiting to be discovered. There is no need to waste anymore time.
