Nissan to Build All-New Version of Titan Full-Size Pickup Truck

Nissan is planning to build an all-new version of its Titan full-size pickup truck, though the automaker hasn’t yet announced a timeline for this new vehicle. The company said it wants the new vehicle to appeal to fleets and commercial vehicle owners and retail customers.

“As a full-line manufacturer, Nissan aims to be a player in every part of the truck business,” said Pierre Loing, vice president, Product and Advanced Planning and Strategy, Nissan Americas. “Our truck teams in Michigan, Arizona, Tennessee and Mississippi are hard at work on a next generation full-size truck line that will expand Titan’s appeal to a broader spectrum of truck buyers, including the all-important skilled trades-buyers. Our new truck will be filled with Nissan innovation and expertise without compromise.”

In addition to its plans for its all-new Titan, the automaker said sales of its Frontier compact pickup truck are still experiencing strong demand, with sales up more than 35% over the last two years.

Sharing time and wisdom is part of a dealer’s routine

marcy

When Tari Cash was trying to break into the auto business in 2008, her father, a Harvard University business professor, suggested she contact a former student and car dealer, Marcy Maguire, who might make time for a phone call or a job lead.

Instead Maguire, president of Windsor Nissan in East Windsor, N.J., and a member of the NADA board of directors, rolled out the red carpet for what Cash recalls as “extreme mentoring.”

“Marcy offered to have me spend a day with her and her family, with time at each of their dealerships. She showed me around, shared insight and gave me a hands-on perspective,” said Cash, now 37, who soon after landed a job at Telsa Motors, bolstered by new confidence. That job recently ended, and she turned to Maguire again, knowing she has an open door for mentoring. “Marcy is always willing to share the nuts and bolts of business with me.”

Maguire is one of 800 female car dealers out of approximately 17,500 dealers currently operating in the United States, according to NADA. She became an NADA director in 2003 and helped initiate the women’s breakfast at the group’s annual convention. She was named to the Automotive News list of 100 Leading Women in the Automotive Industry in 2005 and 2010.

Yet an office full of awards doesn’t insulate her from struggles. The Saturn investment she made in 1991, along with the two dealerships she bought in 1993 and nourished with care, went out of business in 2009.

Amid the responsibilities of running the store, she carves out time for The Committee of 200, whose goal is to mentor young women in business schools. With advanced degrees from Harvard and the University of Michigan, Maguire chose to set up a scholarship at the University of Michigan’s doctoral program to help women become professors in business schools, in part because she has fond memories of the campus in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Maguire is on the board of the U.S. Tennis Association, raises funds for scholarships and is an ambassador for the NADA Charitable Foundation. She helps a plethora of organizations.

“Car dealers are not just selling cars. They invest in the community at large,” says Maguire. “I have the pleasure of driving in and out of the store every day and thinking how I can improve my town … how we can help customers and citizens be part of this caring and contributing mosaic.”

Hat? Check. Gloves? Check. Engine Oil?

As winter’s chilly embrace holds most of the nation in its grip it’s important that we protect not only ourselves from the elements but our vehicles too.

Frigid weather can have an impact on the health of your car. Keeping it in proper working condition during this cold stretch is vital for your safety and the safety of others. Here are some winterizing tips to keep in mind as you travel through the ice and cold during this blustery season.

Choose the Right Kind of Oil
As it gets colder outside, your engine oil naturally thickens. If it is too thick, it won’t do the best job at keeping your engine lubricated. So if you’re due for an oil change during the winter months make sure you change to one that has the right thickness for this time of year.

Keep an Eye on Your Battery
Less than tropical conditions can have a profound effect on your vehicle’s battery. It can lose up to 33% of its power when the temperature dips below freezing. If temps drop below zero, you can expect a 50% in power loss. So check those connections for corrosion, make sure it’s getting the water it needs and if your battery is more than three years old, get it tested to make sure it can hold its charge.

Check Your Tire Pressure
Wet, snowy or icy conditions can jeopardize your vehicle’s traction on the road. As the weather gets colder, air pressure drops, so keeping your tires properly inflated during winter is a safety-must. Check your Owner’s Manual for the proper target air pressure. And make sure you have enough tread on those tires by placing a quarter into several tread grooves across the tire. If part of Washington’s head is always covered by the tread that’s good news, you have more than 4/32″ of tread depth remaining.

Replace Old or Worn Wiper Blades
Driving in snow and ice is always a challenge. If you can’t see out your windshield, not only does it make it more of a challenge but also makes it less safe for you and other drivers on the road. Wiper blades usually last about one year so we recommend replacing them at the beginning of every winter. If you live in a harsh winter climate rubber-clad snow blades are an effective alternative. And don’t forget to top off your windshield wiper fluid reservoir too.

An emergency kit is always a good idea. Keep blankets, extra warm clothes and even jumper cables handy. Stay bundled up and stay safe on the road in 2013.

2013 Nissan GTR Review from Windsor Nissan

Strengths

One of the world’s top performance cars; rare and exclusive; aggressive, distinctive look; sophisticated powertrain

 cc_2013NIS005a_640_A54

Changes

For 2013, the Nissan GT-R gets another power boost from its twin-turbo V6 engine; this year it’s up to 545 horsepower, up from 530 last year and 485 the year before, due to increased intake efficiency, better airflow to the intercooler, and improved exhaust efficiency. Additionally, the transmission has been refined and the suspension retuned. Inside, front seat support and comfort are much improved.

 

Value

Some might know the Nissan GT-R more from racing video games than from the street. The GT-R is a true exotic supercar–it’s a legend because of its rarity, exotic powertrain, and incredible performance numbers. While the GT-R might not make a practical daily driver, this high-performance coupe is a must-have for collectors, the image-conscious, and those who must have what’s fastest.

Overview

The Nissan GT-R is offered in Premium and Black Edition models, both powered by a special 3.8L twin-turbocharged V6, now making 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. Power is put to all four wheels with a performance-oriented all-wheel drive system, and a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox (with no actual clutch pedal) handles the shifting. With the GT-R’s additional power, the dash to 60 mph takes around three seconds, and top speed is a claimed 196 mph. Brakes are strong enough for secure stops from well into triple-digit speeds, and handling is enhanced by the variable-power-split AWD system. The ride is stiff, in a nod to this car’s prioritization of performance above all else. Inside, the GT-R feels snug, with a strong cockpit design. The driver sits low in rather narrow, well-bolstered sport seats, with a wide center console alongside. Steering wheel paddle shifters can command quick shifts, while center-stack controls are canted slightly toward the driver. The GT-R has a very extensive list of features. Heated, leather-suede-trimmed seats, full power accessories, an Intelligent Key entry and ignition system, a navigation system with XM NavTraffic and NavWeather, a universal garage-door opener and Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity are all included. Also included is a Bose sound system with nine speakers, two subwoofers, Bluetooth streaming audio and DVD playback capability, USB and iPod connectivity and XM satellite radio. Priced about $10,000 above the $96,820 GT-R Premium, the Black Edition adds metallic black lightweight forged aluminum wheels, designed by RAYS, plus Recaro sport bucket seats and unique red and black interior trim. There are few major options on the GT-R. A Cold Weather Package adds Dunlop run-flat tires and smoke-gray forged aluminum wheels. A backup camera is also available.
