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.

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.

One of the world’s top performance cars; rare and exclusive; aggressive, distinctive look; sophisticated powertrain
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.
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.
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.
In The Iconic Sports Car’s 60th Year, Corvette Collector Charles Mallon Looks Back At The Cream Of The Crop
Nearly 60 years ago, the General Motors corporation was already such a worldwide industrial force that it built more than half the cars sold in America: Chevrolets, Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Cadillacs and the occasional locomotives. What it didn’t make was a sports car. Until 1953.
The storied history of the Chevrolet Corvette is stuff of fantastic legend and hard iron. It was conceived to be a one-off exhibited at GM’s Motorama that year, until Ed Cole, Chevy’s chief engineer, saw it, and is said to have literally jumped up and down with enthusiasm to build it.
In honor of Chevrolet’s release of its 60th anniversary model, Chevy Culture asked Charles Mallon of Pennsylvania, the man with more than 2,000 miniature Corvettes in his basement, to name a few of the most significant Vettes from the past six decades. It’s sort of like trying to pick your favorite Disney movies, but Mallon was up to the task. His selections:
The original, in Polo White fiberglass. The car that started a new chapter in America’s romance with the automobile. And a bit of hardware that Mallon sees as reflecting the culture of an era: “The Fifites and Sixties were all about free spirit, the Beach Boys, easy going—and the Corvette personified the driving spirit.”
The ’57 Vette was the first to offer fuel injection. While the new technology would be discontinued in ’65—only to be brought back later, as government economy and emissions regulations became stricter—it proved that the Corvette was ahead of its time. “The ’57 was a milestone,” Mallon says. “Fuel injection was so important from a power standpoint. Add the four-speed transmission and it really became a sports car.”
“It was a cream-of-the-crop car. They worked on the features and the style and put it all together in a tremendous package that year. If you ask someone who had a mid-Sixties car, ‘Was it a ’67 427?’ you’ll often hear, ‘Aw, no, but I wished it was.”
“It was nicknamed king of the hill,” says Mallon. “It really took the Corvette to a whole different class. It was a beast.”
The first C4 ZR-1 arrived in 1990, with 375 horsepower pumped out by its then revolutionary all-aluminum engine. According to the history on the National Corvette Museum website, the “instant legend” set seven world speed records—“the most notable being a 24-hour endurance run that averaged 175.8 mph and recorded more than 4,200 miles.”
In 2009, the C5 ZR1—Mallon’s favorite, minus the hyphen—arrived with a powertrain that put down a ferocious 638 horses, making it the fastest to roll off the Vette assembly line.
The current C6 ZR-1 has been built at GM’s Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant.
You say ZR1 to Corvette people and they know exactly what you’re talking about. I have a poster of a ZR1 cutaway—it’s one of my favorite pieces.”
For the 2013 model year, Chevrolet offers the Corvette 427 Convertible Collector Edition—the most capable convertible in Corvette’s history—as well as a 60th Anniversary Design Package that’s available on all 2013 Corvette models.
“The 2013 model year is historic for Corvette, marking the final year for the current C6 generation,” says Chris Perry, Vice President of Global Marketing and Strategy for Chevrolet. “We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate these milestones than bringing back one of the most coveted combinations in the brand’s history: the Corvette convertible and a 427 cubic-inch engine.”
