Nissan Launches GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition

2020 Nissan GTR | Greenville, MSThe Nissan GT-R Skyline has intrigued sports car enthusiasts since the 1960s. Since its inception, the GT-R had trouble coming stateside until the 2000s – when it dropped the “Skyline” part of its name and became the Nissan GT-R.

Even though the U.S. hasn’t always been part of the GT-R’s history, we can still recognize its longtime place in the performance car segment with a special celebratory edition.

The 50th Anniversary Edition of the GT-R will be available in three trims, which include Premium, Track, and the range-topping NISMO. You can opt for the choice of Bayside Blue with white stripes, Pearl White with red stripes, or Super Silver with white stripes. Each color comes with an exclusive grey interior.

Powered by a twin-turbocharged V6 engine, the Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition will deliver a staggering 565 horsepower and 467 lb-ft of torque. The Track and NISMO editions bump this even further to an upgraded 600-hp powertrain. The transmission, steering, and suspension have all been designed to deliver top-of-the-line performance.

The Nissan GT-R 50th Anniversary Edition is going on sale with the 2020 model year. There is no information yet on the pricing, but you can contact James Ceranti Nissan to be notified about this limited-edition vehicle.

Affordable Overlanding Adventures Are Possible in Nissan Destination Frontier

2019 Nissan Frontier | Greenville, MS

As America’s most affordable pickup, the Nissan Frontier provides excellent power from its 4.0-liter V6 engine and a superb towing capacity of up to 6,720 pounds. Still, Nissan decided to up the ante for those seeking overland adventures. Thus, the Destination Frontier was born.

Tiago Castro, director of Light Commercial Vehicles at Nissan North America, explained it best: “This special Destination Frontier is designed to do two things: first, demonstrate Frontier’s durability, quality and reliability, even when traveling to remote destinations. And second, to help democratize the overlanding experience by showing a more affordable approach to the sport.”

It started with a 2019 Frontier SV 4×4 Midnight Edition with Crew Cab and adds tons of extra features. Nissan added extra ground clearance with a Nisstec 3-inch lift kit. Skid plates and rock sliders protect the engine and transmission over rough terrain, while the Hefty Fabworks front bumper comes equipped with a WARN winch, winch hook, and winch roller.

Overlanding takes you through tough landscapes and climates, so Nissan beefed up the traction with Nitto Trail Grappler off-road tires mounted on American Racing AX201 wheels. And for extended trips, a Leitner Designs bed rack is topped with a comfortable CVT Mt. Shasta rooftop tent, turning the epic SUV into home base.

The Nissan Destination Frontier comes with more features to tame the wilderness, and is available to order through James Ceranti Nissan.

Parking in the Shade

2019 Nissan Altima | James Ceranti Nissan | Greenville, MS

Summer is right around the corner and things are already heating up. This is a friendly reminder that it is always best to find a parking spot out of that direct summer sunlight and for more reasons than you might think.

Less Burns – Just about everyone has a memory of scalding themselves on a hot seatbelt or plopping down on someone’s nice leather upholstery in shorts only to yelp and hop out of their seat. Save yourself some discomfort and find a shady spot to stop.

Save your Paint – Ultraviolet light from the sun does constant damage to paint. Vehicles can protect against this with waxes and treatments, but eventually the sun always wins. Extend your paint job’s beauty by keeping it out of direct sun when possible. It may seem extreme, but if your leave your vehicle parked the sun for long stretches and have no other choice, an opaque cover does a lot of work in preserving your paint finish.

Protect your Plastic – Vehicle interiors can get seriously hot in the sun and even though the plastics that make up the interior consoles are resistant to heat, repeated exposure over time will prevail. Reflective window inserts can do a lot to protect interior surfaces when shade isn’t possible, but they can’t help the exterior.

Spring Cleaning! Top Car Cleaning Tips for your Nissan

Spring Cleaning For Your Nissan | Greenville, MS

Spring is here, and its arrival will have many folks gearing up for their annual spring cleaning. Do you include your Nissan on your spring cleaning list? If not, you should! Now is the perfect time to give your Nissan some tender love and care, so use these car cleaning tips to get your vehicle in great condition.

Exterior

When you live in a climate with snowy winters, cleaning your car’s exterior is about more than just looks—it also helps protect your car from rust and damage that can result from exposure to road salt. Give your Nissan a good exterior cleaning and make sure to spray down the undercarriage.

Interior

The best method for cleaning a car’s cabin is to start from the top and move down. Wipe the dashboard with a microfiber cloth, and use paintbrushes to dust small crevices like air vents and areas between knobs and buttons. Vacuum the floors and seats, and follow that by shampooing seats and carpets.

Wax

Efficient spring cleaning will get your possessions in good shape for the whole year. This means that your task is not complete without a good waxing. Once you’ve cleaned your Nissan’s exterior, apply a good coat of wax to finish it off with a beautiful shine that will also provide protection from debris and the elements.

If you find some problems with your Nissan while you’re cleaning, contact the service department at James Ceranti Nissan.
