Nissan Dominates 10 Best Family Cars of 2013 List

2013 PathfinderThe 2013 model year has been an exciting one for Nissan. With several models receiving fresh new looks and features, Nissan is ready and able to compete among the best brands in the world, and win! Proof of this can be found on Kelley Blue Book’s recent list of 10 Best Family Cars of 2013. The redesigned 2013 Altima took the ninth spot on the list, while the all-new 2013 Pathfinder beat out every other contender and cinched the number one spot. Both vehicles are now available at our Greenville, MS dealership.

The 2013 Nissan Altima debuted earlier this year with a sharp new look, excellent fuel economy rating, and a comfortable, tech-savvy interior. This five passenger sedan also received excellent safety ratings and an abundance of new safety features including blind-spot monitoring. Needless to say, it is a very worthy contender on this list from Kelley Blue Book.

And now on to the champion of this list, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder! To say Pathfinder was redesigned for this model year is an understatement; this SUV has been completely reinvented. Gone is the boxy, rigid, truck-like styling of previous Pathfinder models and in its place is a smooth yet sporty exterior design that resembles today’s crossover more than an all terrain SUV. Improved fuel economy, better handling, and a more comfortable ride make the new Pathfinder more appealing to families that may have overlooked it in years past. With these updates, Pathfinder is finding its niche now in suburban garages rather than back road trails.

Nissan Xterra Ranks High on List of Best Off-Roaders

Nissan XterraWhen you think of the term ‘off-roader’ many things come to mind. You may think of a big, muscular, mammoth looking truck-based SUV that can run over anything and everything in its path. You also probably imagine a vehicle that can take on gravel, dirt, small pools of water, and any other type of terrain it meets. It’s likely that most vehicles described as off-roaders don’t do well as vehicles for everyday driving. The Nissan Xterra is the off-roader that breaks the mold. This SUV is powerful and brawny, yet easy to drive for everyday commutes, and has recently been ranked on Edmunds’ Consumers’ Favorites poll of Best Off-Roaders.

With a versatile cargo area and easy-to-clean interior, Xterra is a capable compact SUV that isn’t afraid to get a little dirty. It’s great as an off-road vehicle and provides a surprising pleasant on-road driving experience for a rugged SUV. Xterra ranked fourth overall on Edmunds’ list of Best Off-Roaders.

If you’re looking for a more than capable off-road vehicle that can survive in the real world, the Nissan Xterra is the ultimate choice for you. Stop by James Ceranti Nissan and take it for a spin. Visit our Greenville, MS dealership in person or online at www.jamescerantinissan.net for more information.

Success for Nissan’s Easy Fill Tire Alert

Easy Fill Tire AlertTire pressure gauges too confusing to figure out? Never sure just when to put more air in your tires? Had more flats than a shoe store? Thankfully, James Ceranti Nissan has a solution—Nissan’s all-new Easy Fill Tire Alert.

The Easy Fill Tire Alert system was just named one of six finalists by AOL Auto for the 2012 Technology of the Year Award. The winner will be announced January 9, 2013 at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. We at James Ceranti Nissan are feeling confident about the chances for the Easy Fill Tire Alert.

So what makes the Easy Fill Tire Alert so incredible? The system uses tire pressure monitoring sensors that will alert you as soon as your tire pressure drops below a safe level. This is very important as so many drivers unknowingly drive at dangerous pressure levels, which makes them much more likely to get into an accident.  Once you stop to put more air into the low tire(s), the system will activate four-way flashers that indicate that a tire is being filled. When the tire has reached the appropriate level, the car will honk. If for some odd reason you persist, the car will keep honking to let you know you’ve filled it too high, and then as you release air, it will honk again to let you know you’ve reached the right level.

The technology is really ingenious. For 2013, Nissan plans to add the system to the Nissan Altima, the Quest minivan, the all-new Pathfinder three-row SUV, and the Sentra sedan. We expect it will make its way into all Nissan and Infiniti vehicles in the coming years. Find this technology now in some 2013 Nissan vehicles at James Ceranti Nissan, www.jamescerantinissan.net.

Nissan Introduces Autonomous Emergency Steering

Whether it was a rabbit, a deer, a raccoon or maybe even another car on the road, every driver has had an instance where something has jumped out in front of their vehicle and it was too late to brake, so they had to swerve to avoid hitting it.  Hopefully your reactions were fast enough, or Thumper may have just become road kill.

Luckily for wildlife creatures everywhere, Nissan has announced the development of it “Autonomous Emergency Steering System.”  According to Nissan’s release, the “system offers a high level of collision avoidance capability by applying automatic braking and automatic steering in situations where a collision is imminent and evading obstacles by braking may not be effective.”

Essentially what the system will be able to do is avoid unexpected obstacles automatically for the driver when it is too late to successfully engage the brake to avoid the collision.  It does this by utilizing a front-mounted camera equipped with radar, two right and left rear radars and five laser scanners placed around the vehicle.
