Was it just a dream we had – rockcrawling with Nissan in their spacious and sturdy Titan trucks and Armadas in Arizona, on the way to the Overland Expo? Nope – it was real. Check out how capable the brand’s body-on-frame vehicles are for exploration on all surfaces.
Nissan had a little fun with this modded 370Z by fitting it with tracks in the back and skis in the front. Otherwise, the 332 hp winter convertible is largely stock besides the lifted suspension and widened wheel wells. The car will debut at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.
Suspension component maker Hellwig Products and LGE-CTS Motorsports are building this off-road beast for SEMA 2016. The modded Nissan Titan XD has a forged sway bar and air bags to handle the big Lance Camper, and rides on massive Falken tires and black Method Wheels.
A look inside Nissan’s Canton, Mississippi factory, where hardworking folks have built every single TITAN pickup truck since 2003. We’re still amazed to see how coils of steel are transformed by man and machine into the vehicles we rely on every day for work and play.
Godzilla’s top-of-the-line edition gets the same visual updates as the base GT-R, but has more horses – 600 of them to be exact, along with a stiffened carbon fiber front bumper, downforce enhancements, NISMO-tuned shocks, Recaro leather sport seats, Alcantara trim, and more.
Petrolicious features Jay Kho and his 1983 R30 Skyline. The series that revived the Skyline model, Jay and many of his fellow gearheads pined for the R30 even more because it was never sold in the US. There are days when Jay still can’t believe that it’s in his garage.
Godzilla gets a new front end that improves airflow, aero tweaks, and an upgraded interior with premium materials, and a new dashboard that favors simplicity over the myriad switches in the outgoing model. Oh, and its 3.8L twin-turbo V6 gets 20 extra horses, for total of 565.
Inspired by the ability for their cars to park themselves, Nissan Japan created an office chair with the same capability. Watch as the army of robotic chairs finds their way back to their homes in this clever promo video. Now can we see it with people in the chairs?
To combat this winter’s snowiest conditions, Nissan has kitted out a series of SUVs riding on 48-inch Dominator snow tracks instead of tires. The Winter Warrior Murano, Pathfinder, and Rogue can be seen at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, but not at dealerships any time soon.
Based on the imposing Nissan TITAN XD, the TITAN Warrior raises the stakes by raising its height almost 3″, and its width by 6″. It rocks ginormous 37″ tall off-road tires on 18″ wheels. Terrain crushing ability aside, its sculpted front end and sporty interior look just awesome.
