If kayaking and fishing are passions of yours, you may have heard the name Eric Jackson before. Jackson spends most of his time out on the water doing competitive whitewater kayaking. In addition, he has created some innovative kayak builds and is even a professional fisherman.
Recently, Nissan TITAN and Eric Jackson teamed up at the annual ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sport Fishing Trades) to show off the capabilities of the Nissan TITAN lineup. Jackson will also get to use a TITAN XD pickup for his professional appearances. That truck will be more than capable for towing his line of custom kayaks and his Ranger fishing boat.
“It’s a rare occasion when Eric Jackson is not on a lake fishing or navigating the most treacherous whitewater rapids,” said Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc. “We’re proud that he has selected TITAN XD as his wheels of choice.”
According to Jackson, the TITAN was an easy choice to make. Both he and Nissan are headquartered in Tennessee. In addition, the TITAN XD is assembled in Canton, Mississippi, and Jackson said his company, Jackson Kayak, manufactures as much in the United States as they can, just like Nissan.
Come experience the American-made, capable Nissan TITAN lineup, available now at Nissan of Silsbee.
We might just be on the brink of a watershed moment in vehicular history, and it’s all thanks to the incredible strides in autonomous driving technology being made by automakers such as Nissan.
Nissan has often been ahead of the curve thanks to its record-breaking car, the Nissan LEAF, the best-selling all-electric vehicle in the world. Now, Nissan is adding to the impressive feats its flagship electric vehicle is capable of by introducing brand-new autonomous driving technology to the next generation of LEAFs.
Nissan LEAFs will feature the state-of-the-art ProPILOT Assist system. ProPILOT Assist will help a driver stay in their current lane while traveling on the freeway. The system will also aid in controlling acceleration and braking, as well as control steering with its Autosteer and Traffic Aware Cruise Control features.
The 2018 Nissan LEAF is just the beginning. Nissan projects that, by 2020, its enhanced vehicles will be able to navigate intersections and drive through cities with complete autonomy.
ProPILOT Assist is the next level of autonomous driving, and it will be available on one of the most popular cars in the world. Big things are happening, and Nissan of Silsbee is happy to provide our customers with cars at the forefront of it all.
Nissan’s Nismo performance division isn’t exactly a secret, especially for enthusiasts who tend to rave about high-performance models of their favorite commuter cars. Nissan is looking to do fans a major favor. While Nismo has been fairly quiet over the past, it looks like things are going to be revving up in the near future.
New Nissan Nismo models are in the works, following the formation of the Nismo Cars Business Department. The new department will function to gather resources through Nissan Motorsports, among other groups that fall under the Nissan umbrella. The end result will be more Nismo models rolling off the line sooner rather than later.
Some of the most recent Nismo models include the Sentra and Juke. While the Sentra saw performance tweaks in the suspension, the Juke received a more powerful engine under the hood. Notably, there aren’t Nismo models of the Nissan Altima and Rogue, two of the most popular vehicles in the industry, let alone the brand lineup.
While Nismo models currently only see around 15,000 units sold each year, more fan-favorite models will almost certainly appeal to the enthusiast within the average driver. Additional styling and performance updates are bound to help land more Nismo badges on the road too.
We here at Nissan of Silsbee can’t help but be excited for the arrival of new Nissan Nismo models!
Nissan brought its best game to the Chicago Auto Show recently, putting a ton of effort into a slew of production models, debut models, and cool new announcements to boost anticipation for upcoming vehicles. The Nissan model lineup impressed with a variety of cool new features and options.
Nissan attracted some attention with a few cool concepts: the NV Cargo X, an unusual take on commercial cargo vans that gives it a ground clearance boost and off-road capabilities, and the Rogue One: Star Wars model. The NV Cargo X was built in collaboration with Ian Johnson of “X-Treme Off-Road,” while the Rogue One, which was designed to look like a Rebel starfighter, was a nice nod towards the Nissan Rogue’s “Rogue One” campaign last fall.
A few vehicles also made their debut, like the 2017 model years for the Pathfinder, Rogue Sport, and Titan. The 2017 Titan will even include a new King Cab body configuration in its model lineup, with seating for six and an optional rear-seat delete option. Nissan also revealed it would be extending its Midnight Edition package to six additional models.
The Nissan model lineup at the Chicago Auto Show wowed fans and experts alike, and we’re excited to see some of the new models and features. Visit us at Nissan of Silsbee to learn more about the impressive Nissan lineup!
