Is Nissan reviving the IDS Concept car?

It was a full two years ago when we saw the Nissan IDS concept revealed at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. A lot has happened since then, and we won’t lie, we sort of forgot about it. The reason? Well, it seemed a little too futuristic to be true. Now, with competition to be the first automaker to produce an autonomous vehicle, it seems Nissan could be revving the IDS Concept car. Or at least, reminding us of it. (more…)

Nissan 370Zki at 2018 Chicago Auto Show

We all remember when Nissan presented us with the Winter Warrior concepts, but isn’t an SUV just what you’d expect for an off-road concept meant to find traction in the snow? We have to admit we’re in love with the concept Nissan has promised to bring to the 2018 Chicago Auto Show: the Nissan 370Zki. OK, so it’s unlikely to see this concept ever go into production, since there aren’t many places that really need wheels exchanged for DOMINATOR tracks and front skis. But it sure is fun to look at.

What is Nissan Brain-to-Vehicle technology?

What does the future of the automotive world look like? If auto shows have anything to tell us, it’s all electric vehicle concepts and (hopefully) autonomous driving. One thing we haven’t been expecting is more research into what Nissan is calling Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V). Essentially, tracking brain activity from driver data to “teach” vehicles how people react to different driving situations. What sort of value could this technology offer? (more…)

2017 Nissan Star Wars themed models

2017 Nissan Star Wars-themed models

It’s been too long since we’ve last talked about an auto show in great detail, and that’s because summer is a busy season for most automakers. It’s the easiest time for shoppers to go out and take test drives, as the warm weather and clear roads provide ideal conditions to take your time and make a wise decision. When things cool down, brands like Nissan could put more focus on cool concepts and exciting brand opportunities. One such opportunity? The continued partnership with the Star Wars franchise. The newest film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is coming to theaters this month, and Nissan brought a variety of Star Wars-themed models to the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show to boost hype. (more…)

Key features of the Nissan IMx zero-emission concept

Nissan didn’t disappoint, as our favorite automaker flaunted the Nissan IMx, a zero-emission crossover concept that is meant to be fully autonomous. Naturally, we expect many concepts to be both electric and hint at some form of full autonomy simply because that seems to be the wave of the future. We have to admit, we’re looking forward to it. Here are some of the key highlights and features of the Nissan IMx concept. (more…)

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

2017 Nissan Armada Release Date

It has gone from rumor Patrol to preparing the Patrol as news breaks today at the Chicago Auto Show that these rumors are in fact true. How do we know? A better source than any “he said, she said” finger pointing tabloids found in the grocery store checkout lines, when an automotive rumor like this is confirmed at a national auto show, we can be certain.

The Patrol-based Nissan Armada will be making its debut this week at the Chicago Auto Show where our media team was able to capture the following pictures to give you a sneak peak ahead its public display date.

Next question though, when is the 2017 Nissan Armada’s release date? With its public debut being next week at the show….you would think that its arrival might be farther off than summer! That’s right, we are just one season away from the arrival of this updated, and fully reformed large SUV. (more…)
