2021 Nissan Rogue Preview: What Changes You Can Expect

Nissan Rogue | Greenville, MS

At James Ceranti Nissan, the practical and compact Rogue crossover is a customer favorite. If you are looking to upgrade your ride in the coming months, we have a Nissan Rogue preview so you can learn more about the potential changes for the 2021 Rogue.

Though no official images of the 2021 Rogue have been released by Nissan yet, industry insiders have scoured design renderings and taken spy shots of prototype vehicles that give us a pretty good idea of what the Rogue is expected to look like. Experts believe the newly redesigned Rogue will have a squarer nose, a thicker rear support pillar, and a more aggressive grille and light signature.

As Nissan has not released official engine specifications for the upcoming Rogue, it is difficult to determine just how powerful the next iteration of the best-selling SUV will be. However, Motortrend speculates that the Rogue could feature the same 2.5-liter engine that powers the newest Altima. That engine produces up to 180 lb-ft of torque and 188 horsepower. The 2021 Rogue will likely continue the use of the continuously variable transmission and will almost assuredly come with an all-wheel drive option.

If you simply cannot wait until the 2021 Rogue begins arriving on our lot, visit James Ceranti Nissan to find the current 2020 Rogue in stock now.

3 Major Tips for Tailgating Around Greenville

Nissan Tailgating | Greenville, MS

Tailgating is a great way to gather with friends and family any time of the year, whether you’re going to a sporting events or simply want to have an outdoor picnic. Nissan trucks and SUVs (such as the Titan, Frontier, Rogue, Rogue Sport, Murano, Kicks, Pathfinder, and Armada) provide plenty of space and amenities for tailgating. Here are some tips for tailgating around Greenville, Mississippi.

Get the right tools

First and foremost, you need the right equipment. In addition to a high-end cooler, put a toolbox in your truck bed or trunk that’s stocked will all the kitchen tools you’ll need, including spatulas, whisks, skewers, matches, and cleaning supplies.

Be careful

Food is an essential, but you’ll also want to make sure you’re keeping everything sanitary and safe. One pro tip is to freeze water bottles to put in your cooler as ice. As they thaw, you can drink them, saving space and expense. Pack food in zippered bags and plastic containers with lids. If possible, keep raw meat separate from veggies and fruit.

Use Nissan technology

Entertainment is also important. In-vehicle connectivity — which you’ll find on models like the Nissan Pathfinder and Titan — lets you hook up you phone to the in-vehicle infotainment to access music playlists and other functions. You can also purchase Bluetooth wireless speakers if you don’t want to drain the vehicle battery.

What’s In a Name? The Origin of Nissan Car Names

You see their names in commercials and on the road, but did you ever wonder about the origin of Nissan car names? Here’s how some of Nissan’s top models got their names.

Murano

Murano is the name of a series of Italian islands in the Venetian lagoon. The Nissan Murano is named after this Italian region and its famous Murano glass which is recognized worldwide as a work of art.

Versa

“Versa” derives from the word “versatility,” which the Nissan Versa has in droves. It’s Nissan’s most compact and efficient car, and offers a versatile ride for anyone from teen drivers to small families.

Sentra

The Nissan Sentra got its name from the word “sentry,” which describes a guard who protects a certain location. Despite its compact size, the Nissan Sentra is safe and will keep you protected, and Nissan wanted its name to show that.

GT-R

GT-R stands for “Gran Turismo Racer,” a name given to only the fastest and most powerful sports cars. The base Nissan GT-R boasts a 565-horsepower rating and 467 lb-ft of torque, which clearly puts it at the top of its class and shows how it’s earned the GT-R name.

370Z

Nissan first introduced the Z line of sports cars in the 1960s, starting with the Fairlady Z. The Fairlady name came from Japan’s love for art and beauty and Nissan’s president’s love of the musical “My Fair Lady.” The Z referred to the car’s file designation during the design process. The Nissan 370Z is the line’s sixth generation, introduced back in 2009.

Redesigned Nissan LEAF Details Promise Improved Power

Redesigned Nissan LEAF | Greenville, MS

The Nissan LEAF has been one of the most innovative electric vehicles in history. It led the way for people all across the country being able to make the switch to an EV. Now, Nissan is working hard to make its electric technology even better with an innovative new design.

Nissan unveiled an electric test vehicle that is equipped with dual motors and all-wheel drive. This gives the model more control and more power. In fact, the prototype produces about 304 horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, the LEAF Plus is rated at 214 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.

Along with its innovative powertrain configuration, the prototype also features independent brake control with regenerative braking on the rear wheels. This helps give the vehicle smoother braking.

Redesigned Nissan LEAF details suggested that this prototype will not become a production vehicle; however, a lot of the technology used on this model will make an appearance on the “next generation of Nissan EVs,” according to company representatives. This could include a new LEAF, a production version of the Ariya concept, large sedans, or even sports cars.

The current second-generation LEAF has an EPA-estimated driving range of about 226 miles on a fully charged battery. This should be more than enough for daily driving and even some road trips. You can find new and pre-owned Nissan LEAF inventory here at James Ceranti Nissan.

New Nissan Electric Vehicle Concept

2021 Nissan Ariya | Greenville, MS
Nissan

Last month, Nissan unveiled its newest electric vehicle concept, the Ariya, at the Tokyo Motor Show. According to reports, the new Nissan electric vehicle concept could make it into production as early as late 2021.

The Ariya will be the first real electric crossover SUV in the industry. Electric batteries are heavy so manufacturers have stuck to either making small, light cars to counter the weight or big heavy vehicles that can handle the extra poundage. This is the first small SUV with purely electric capabilities, and small crossover SUVs are what Americans want most right now.

The new Nissan will carry a dual electric motor that will add extra power and performance as well as all-wheel drive capabilities. That means a sportier ride, being able to go 0 to 60 in five seconds, while being able to go over 300 miles on a single charge, more than the current Nissan EV, the Leaf. That would put the Ariya in direct competition with Tesla models when it comes to range.

The size is practical, with interior space similar to the Murano. Inside, you’ll find features like a 12.3 horizontal touch-screen display, smartphone recognition features, and Nissan’s ProPilot driver assistance system.

While the Ariya’s future is not yet set in stone, the Nissan Leaf has been a hit in the U.S. since its introduction at the beginning of the decade. Come see Nissan’s lineup today at James Ceranti Nissan.

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.
