New Nissan Nismo Models are Coming

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 Model Lineup Makes a Splash in Chicago

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!
