Watch for updates on Nissan vehicles as they become available, and, as always, check in regularly with www.nissannews.com for the latest news on Nissan sales, pricing, motorsports and other activities in the United States and around the world.

What's New – September 2017
At Nissan, the 2018 model year will be marked by exciting new products and new technologies – all in support of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, a global initiative that focuses on how Nissan vehicles are driven, powered and integrated into society.

Three new technologies already have been announced: ProPILOT™ Assist, Rear Door Alert (RDA) and Intelligent Rearview Mirror (I-RVM). Nissan also recently announced that it is making Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) standard on a projected one million vehicles sold in the United States for model year 2018, including seven of the company's most popular models – Rogue/Rogue Sport, Altima, Murano, LEAF, Pathfinder, Maxima and Sentra (except manual transmission-equipped and all NISMO versions).

As for updates on 2018 models, this edition of What's New features highlights of the 370Z Coupe, 370Z Roadster, 370Z NISMO Tech, Pathfinder, Armada and Versa Sedan.

In addition, the all-new 2018 LEAF makes its U.S. debut in early 2018 – with a 150-mile driving range, all new design inside and out, and a range of available safety, security and driving assistance technologies including ProPILOT™ Assist. Stay tuned for more information.

And finally, Nissan's popular Midnight Edition lineup expands in 2018 with the addition of the unique blackout treatment on the TITAN, TITAN XD and Frontier pickups.

As always, full information on all Nissan vehicles is available online at nissannews.com. Stay tuned for additional What's New updates as they become available.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility – building on global progress
The world is facing serious challenges such as air pollution, worsening traffic jams and frequent accidents. Nissan is committed to playing a role in addressing these challenges by making transportation safer, smarter and more enjoyable, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero emissions and zero fatalities. Nissan Intelligent Mobility is the roadmap to achieve this "zero-zero" future.

Guided by the vision of mobility for all, Nissan is democratizing these innovations by bringing them from luxury segments to affordable high volume models and ensuring everyone has access to the benefits. Nissan is making cars exciting partners for our customers.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility is not solely focused on autonomous vehicles - it is an initiative to differentiate Nissan by focusing on how our vehicles are driven, powered, and integrated into society. Some of these developments are not in the distant future – they are taking shape in the vehicles we drive today.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility encompasses three core areas of innovation:

Nissan Intelligent Driving helps to give customers more confidence through enhanced safety, control, and comfort for everyone on board. Driver Assist technologies can already be found in Nissan vehicles today, including the Japanese market Nissan Serena, the first model produced to feature ProPILOT Assist technology and will be joined by the European model Qashqai in fall 2017, along with the all-new, second-generation Nissan LEAF near the beginning of 2018.

Nissan Intelligent Power makes driving more exciting for customers by continuing to reduce emissions and increase fuel economy. Nissan is committed to a holistic approach to achieving zero-emission mobility by making internal combustion engines more efficient and putting more advanced technologies into our electric vehicles.

Nissan Intelligent Integration keeps customers more connected by conveniently linking Nissan cars to the wider society. Nissan is helping to shape a sustainable ecosystem enabling cars to interact with people, other cars and road infrastructure. This approach will eventually lead to remote vehicle operation, reduced traffic jams, more efficient car sharing, and improved energy management.

ProPILOT™ Assist
Nissan's new ProPILOT™ Assist eases driver workload by reducing the amount of driver acceleration, steering and braking input under certain driving conditions. To activate the system, the driver simply pushes the blue ProPILOT Assist ON button, which is integrated into the right-side steering wheel spoke. Step two is to set the Intelligent Cruise Control when the desired speed is reached, as with a normal advanced cruise control system.

When lane markers are consistently detected, steering assist engages and the steering wheel/lane marker icons on the instrument panel turn green. Both right and left hand markers need to be detected by the front camera. Steering assist will engage or disengage depending on the visibility or presence of lane markers, though the Intelligent Cruise Control will remain active.

If the vehicle comes to a complete stop in a traffic jam situation for more than three seconds, the driver just presses the resume button or taps the accelerator pedal to begin moving again.

 

Rear Door Alert
The new Rear Door Alert (RDA)1 system can help remind Nissan owners to check the rear seat by using a series of distinctive honks as the driver is walking away from the vehicle. The audio alerts distinguish the Nissan RDA from other systems in the marketplace. The new RDA feature debuts as standard equipment on the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder SUV and will be available on other Nissan models in the coming years.

RDA monitors the rear door switches to detect their open/closed status prior to and after a trip. If the system detects that a rear door was opened/closed prior to a trip, but then was not re-opened again after the trip was completed, given the vehicle was put in park and the ignition cycled off, the system responds with a series of notifications, starting with a display in the instrument panel and progressing to subtle but distinctive chirps of the horn.

Because there are so many scenarios when a driver might open a rear door, from throwing in a gym bag to cleaning the car, the RDA system is easily configurable and can be turned off temporarily or permanently through prompts in the cluster display.

1. Rear Door Alert is intended to remind people to check the back seats of their vehicle under certain circumstances.  See Owners' Manual for system limitations.

Intelligent Rear View Mirror
Nissan's new Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM)1 adds a built-in LCD monitor within the traditional rearview mirror to help provide clear rearward visibility unimpeded by traditional obstacles such as cargo or tall passengers. The 2018 Nissan Armada is the first Nissan vehicle to offer the new I-RVM technology. I-RVM is standard on the Armada Platinum grade.

The I-RVM system utilizes a high-performance, narrow-angle camera and a specially shaped LCD monitor, with a unique aspect ratio of approximately 4:1, versus conventional monitors' 4:3 or 16:9. The camera projects a clear image onto the monitor for a better view, as well as a more comfortable driving experience.

The high-quality camera and image processing system implemented in the LCD monitor consistently results in a clear image with minimal glare, even during sunrise or sunset conditions or when the vehicle is being followed by a vehicle with strong headlights.

2018 Nissan LEAF Newsroom

2018 Nissan LEAF
The all-new Nissan LEAF further strengthens Nissan's position as the global leader in zero-emission electric vehicles. The best-selling electric car of all time has been completely reinvented for its second generation, combining greater range with a dynamic new design and advanced technologies to create the ultimate EV package. It goes on sale at Nissan dealers in all 50 states in early 2018 with a starting MSRP of $29,9901.

The new e-powertrain boosts acceleration and excitement. ProPILOT™ Assist and e-Pedal driver assistance technologies make driving more enjoyable, helping enhance safety and reduce stress. Drivers of the new LEAF will feel more confident, excited and connected, while contributing to a sustainable smart-mobility society.

The 2018 LEAF offers a range of 150 miles2, allowing drivers to enjoy longer journeys than the previous-generation vehicle. The new e-powertrain is rated at 147 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, providing improved acceleration and driver enjoyment.

The LEAF's revolutionary e-Pedal technology transforms the driving experience. It lets drivers start, accelerate, decelerate and stop by increasing or decreasing the pressure applied to the accelerator. When the accelerator is fully released, regenerative and friction brakes are applied automatically, bringing the car to a complete stop. The car holds its position, even on uphill slopes, until the accelerator is pressed again. The reactiveness of e-Pedal helps maximize driving pleasure.

The new Nissan LEAF's design includes a low, sleek profile that gives it a sharp, dynamic look. Along with excellent aerodynamics, the styling – from the sleek silhouette to the car's "advanced expression" – evokes the exhilaration of driving an EV.

Familiar Nissan design features include the signature boomerang-shaped lamps and V-Motion flow in the front. The flush-surface grille in clear blue and the rear bumper's blue molding emphasize its identity as a Nissan EV.

The LEAF's completely redesigned cabin is focused on the driver, featuring a front panel in the form of a "gliding wing." It combines an excellent use of space with functionality.

The interior design creates a relaxed ambience and premium quality feel, thanks to the carefully selected materials. Vibrant blue stitching in the seats, instrument panel and steering wheel has been incorporated as a symbol of Nissan's electric vehicles. The 7-inch, full-color TFT display has been redesigned for easier comprehension of key features – such as the Safety Shield technology, power gauge and audio and navigation system information. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto have also been added.

2.Projected MY18 EPA range of 150 miles. Actual range may vary based on driving conditions. Use for comparison only.


2018 Nissan Armada Press Kit

2018 Nissan Armada
Since the introduction of the all-new, second-generation design for the 2017 model year, Armada has set sales records month after month. As the flagship of Nissan's expanding lineup of SUVs and crossovers, the full-size family-adventure Armada features 8-passenger seating, a 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 with best-in-class1 standard maximum 390 horsepower and standard maximum towing capacity of 8,500 pounds for both 4WD and 2WD models (when properly equipped)1.

And, for the first time on any Nissan vehicle, Armada Platinum models include standard Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM)2, which uses a high-resolution camera mounted on the rear of the vehicle to project a clear image onto an LCD monitor built into the standard rearview mirror. A switch located at the bottom of the mirror allows the driver to access either the traditional rearview mirror system or the new Intelligent Rear View Mirror.

The 2018 Armada is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.

1. Comparison based on 2018 Nissan Armada vs. latest in-market Ward's Large Sport Utility segment from manufacturer's websites. 8,500 lb. maximum towing capacity for all 2018 Armada 4WD and 2WD models when properly equipped.

2018 Nissan Pathfinder Press Kit

2018 Nissan Pathfinder
Pathfinder, one of Nissan's best known and most popular nameplates in its nearly 60-year history in the United States, was extensively revised just last model year – with more adventure capability, a freshened exterior look and enhanced safety, technology, performance and style.

For 2018, Pathfinder adds additional new features, including standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)1, an enhanced Midnight Edition appearance package and an innovative Rear Door Alert (RDA)2 system. Other changes for the new model year include two new colors – Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine – standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)3 and NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Services on Pathfinder SL grade (previously standard only on Platinum grade), additional four USB ports (six total) and revised option package naming and content.

The Rear Door Alert2 system can help remind customers of items that may be forgotten in the rear seat – pets, valuables, dry cleaning, groceries and more. If the system detects that a rear door is opened prior to driving, and the customer does not open a rear door again at the end of the trip, the system can remind customers that something might be left in the rear seat. RDA is designed to be simple, unobtrusive and can be easily turned on or off as needed. After making its debut as standard equipment on all 2018 Nissan Pathfinder models, it will later be available on other Nissan models in the coming years.

The new Pathfinder Midnight Edition, which was first introduced late in the 2017 model year on the exclusive Platinum grade, has now moved to the more popular SL model (late availability). It features exclusive black 20-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black spoiler, black roof rails, black grill surround, black front and rear fascia accents, black license plate finisher, black badging, black splash guards, illuminated kick plates, exterior approach lighting and available Midnight Edition floor mats. It is offered in a choice of Pearl White, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black.

The 2018 Pathfinder will go on sale in mid-September.

1. AEB cannot prevent accidents due to carelessness or dangerous driving techniques. It may not provide warning or braking in certain conditions. Speed limitations apply.
2. Rear Door Alert is intended to remind people to check the back seats of their vehicle under certain circumstances.  See Owners' Manual for system limitations.
3. ICC is not a collision avoidance system or warning device. Designed to use limited braking. Failure to apply the brakes could result in an accident.


2018 Nissan Versa Sedan Press Kit

2018 Nissan Versa Sedan
The 2018 Nissan Versa Sedan offers high value, exceptional roominess and mid-size vehicle technology without a mid-size price. For the new model year, Versa Sedan adds standard adjustable front headrests and map lamps for all grades, along with one new exterior color – Deep Blue Pearl.

Versa Sedan's standard 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine includes a range of efficiency-enhancing technologies such as a dual fuel injector system and a twin Continuously Variable valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) mounted on both intake and exhaust camshafts. The engine is rated at 109 horsepower and 107 lb-ft of torque.

The SV Special Edition Package, introduced last year, features 15-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights, front fascia chrome accents, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 5.0-inch color display audio, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately), Streaming audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, RearView Monitor and a Special Edition emblem.

The 2018 Versa Sedan is available in three models – S (5-speed manual), S Plus (Xtronic only) and SV (Xtronic only). It is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.


2018 Nissan Z Coupe Press Kit

2018 Nissan Z Coupe
For 2018, Nissan's iconic Z Coupe adds a number of significant enhancements – starting with a revised exterior that includes dark headlight treatment, dark tinted rear combination lights, new blackout rear lower fascia and new 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design.

Under the skin, the legendary 370Z driving experience has been enhanced through optimized acceleration and torque profile tuning. Without changing the engine's internal structure or components, engine performance is improved through careful refinement of Accelerator Pedal Opening (APO) and Throttle Valve Opening (TVO) angles. Manual transmission-equipped 370Z models feature new motorsports-inspired EXEDY® high-performance clutch.

In addition, for 370Z Coupe buyers wanting to stand out from the crowd even further, a new Heritage Edition package is offered on the base 370Z grade. The Heritage Edition is available in two exterior colors. The Chicane Yellow Heritage Edition features black outside mirrors, gloss black graphics and yellow interior trim. The Magnetic Black Heritage Edition includes gloss silver graphics and yellow interior trim.

Also, the new model year adds a bold new exterior color – Passion Red – to the 370Z Coupe color palette. The Passion Red paint uses a high brightness aluminum pigment in the base coat and Nano-pigment tinted clear coat to give it a vivid, jewel-like red color that looks different depending on the viewing angle.

Other 2018 enhancements include two additional speakers for the base 370Z audio system and the addition of an electric interior hatch release switch on the center console.

The 2018 370Z is offered in four well-equipped trim levels: 370Z, Sport, Sport Tech and Touring. Also available are the Nissan 370Z NISMO Tech, along with three 370Z Roadster models – 370Z Roadster, 370Z Touring Roadster and 370Z Touring Sport Roadster.

The 2018 370Z Coupe is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.


2018 370Z NISMO Tech Press Kit

2018 Nissan 370Z NISMO Tech
For 2018, the 370Z NISMO Tech continues its role as the ultimate Z®. The changes for the 2018 model year are performance related. Dunlop SP Sport MAXX GT600 high-performance tires, which adopt the same tread pattern as the GT-R, replace the previous Bridgestone Potenza S001 tires. The new tires offer a 20 percent reduction in rolling resistance and a one-decibel reduction in road noise while maintaining the current handling performance.

Also, for 6-speed manual transmission-equipped 2018 370Z NISMO Tech models, driving response is further enhanced with the addition of a new EXEDY® high-performance clutch. The new EXEDY L-PEC (Light Pedal Effort Clutch) clutch was developed in part through EXEDY's longstanding relationship with Nissan Motorsports.

The 2018 370Z NISMO Tech is offered in one fully equipped model, 370Z NISMO Tech, with no options. It is available in a choice of two exterior colors – Magnetic Black and Pearl White.

The 370Z NISMO Tech's GT-R-inspired functional and fully integrated aerodynamic body pieces provide an aggressive and more aerodynamic appearance, along with optimizing front and rear downforce (versus non-NISMO 370Z models). The deep front fascia includes Hyper LED Daytime Running Lights, black headlight bezels, NISMO emblem and signature NISMO red stripe accents. In the rear is a unique NISMO rear spoiler. The standard 19-inch NISMO super-lightweight forged aluminum-alloy wheels by RAYS® feature a twin-five spoke design and a charcoal gray machine finish.

Inside, the unique NISMO-styled interior features black-and-red Recaro® leather-appointed seats with Alcantara® accents. The seats were designed with Recaro® specifically for the 370Z NISMO to provide more uniform body pressure and better all-direction holding during spirited acceleration, braking and cornering. The interior also features red seat trim and stitching with NISMO logo, an Alcantara®-appointed leather-wrapped steering wheel with red center stripe and NISMO red tachometer.

The 2018 370Z NISMO Tech is powered by a potent 350-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL). An exclusive specially tuned H-configured exhaust helps create 18 horsepower more than the standard 370Z Coupe. Torque is rated at 276 lb-ft.

Two transmission choices are offered on the Z NISMO Tech model. The close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission features standard SynchroRev Match®, while the refined 7-speed automatic includes Downshift Rev Matching (DRM), Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with paddle shifters.

The 2018 370Z NISMO Tech is on sale now at Nissan dealers nationwide.


2018 Nissan Z Roadster Press Kit

2018 Nissan Z Roadster
The 2018 Nissan 370Z Roadster offers an unmatched balance of dynamic performance, sculptured styling, innovative technology and exceptional value – matched with the exhilaration of pure open-air motoring. It is offered in three trim levels: 370Z Roadster, 370Z Touring Roadster and 370Z Touring Sport Roadster.

For 2018, the 370Z Roaster adds a number of significant enhancements – starting with a revised exterior that includes dark headlight treatment, dark tinted rear combination lights, new blackout rear fascia and new available 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design that is designed to reduce vibration by improving wheel balance.

Under the skin, the legendary 370Z driving experience has been enhanced through optimized acceleration and torque profile tuning. Without changing the engine's internal structure or components, engine performance is improved through careful refinement of Accelerator Pedal Opening (APO) and Throttle Valve Opening (TVO) angles. Manual transmission-equipped 370Z models (limited availability) feature new motorsports-inspired EXEDY® high-performance clutch.

Also, the new model year adds a bold new, vibrant exterior color – Passion Red. The Passion Red paint process uses a high brightness aluminum pigment in the base coat and Nano-pigment tinted clear coat to give it a vivid, jewel-like red color that looks different depending on the viewing angle. Other 2018 enhancements include two additional speakers for the base 370Z Roaster audio system.

The 370Z Roadster's convertible top features an easy, single-action open-close operation. The interior is completely driver-centric, with its three-layer design grouping items by how a driver sees information, operates the controls and is held in place – so drivers feel completely connected and engaged.

The 2018 370Z Roadster's outstanding performance starts with a 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL), matched with a choice of electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Downshift Rev Matching (DRM) and standard paddle shifters or a 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission with available SynchroRev Match®. Responsive handling is provided by a refined 4-wheel independent suspension.

2018 Nissan 370Z Coupe – Key Facts and Figures

For 2018, Nissan’s iconic 370Z Coupe adds a number of significant enhancements – starting with a revised exterior that includes dark headlight treatment, dark tinted rear combination lights, new blackout rear lower fascia and new 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheel design.

Under the skin, the legendary 370Z driving experience has been enhanced through optimized acceleration and torque profile tuning. Without changing the engine’s internal structure or components, engine performance is improved through careful refinement of Accelerator Pedal Opening (APO) and Throttle Valve Opening (TVO) angles. Manual transmission-equipped 370Z models feature a new motorsports-inspired EXEDY® high-performance clutch.

In addition, for 370Z Coupe buyers wanting to stand out from the crowd even further, a new Heritage Edition package is offered on the base 370Z grade. The Heritage Edition is available in two exterior colors. The Chicane Yellow Heritage Edition features black outside mirrors, gloss black graphics and yellow interior trim. The Magnetic Black Heritage Edition includes gloss silver graphics and yellow interior trim.

Also, the new model year adds a bold new exterior color – Passion Red – to the 370Z Coupe color palette. The Passion Red paint uses a high brightness aluminum pigment in the base coat and Nano-pigment tinted clear coat to give it a vivid, jewel-like red color that looks different depending on the viewing angle.

Other 2018 enhancements include two additional speakers for the base 370Z audio system and the addition of an electric interior hatch release switch on the center console.
