Debut of the 2019 Nissan Maxima at Los Angeles Auto Show

The 2019 Nissan Maxima is getting a facelift and some exciting new features and technologies to match its sleek and sporty exterior. The new Maxima will debut at the very end of November at the prestigious Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Los Angeles Auto Show, an event attended by thousands where automakers show off the latest developments in their cars, will run for ten days starting on November 30.

This mid-cycle refresh adds serious style accents that make this full-size sedan even more eye-catching than before. Updated headlights and taillights improve visibility and boost sophistication, while the sloping hood and more angular grille give the Maxima a sharp, aggressive stance.

Of course, the Maxima’s looks aren’t its only plus. The Nissan Safety Shield 360 includes a host of driver assist features like automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. It also has impressive performance stats at 300 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque!

The new Maxima will go on sale shortly after its debut at the LA Auto Show, so mark the date on your calendars! For more information about this vehicle, contact us at James Ceranti Nissan.

Get Your Hopes up for the New 2016 Nissan Titan

Nissan Titan

Here at James Ceranti Nissan, we can’t wait for January. We know, we know—the calendar has only just turned to August, but we can’t help it. You see, Nissan is planning to unveil an all-new Nissan Titan pickup truck at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this coming January, and we just can’t take the long wait. Thank goodness for Torque News, though—they recently put together a wish list for the new 2016 Nissan Titan, and we devoured the list and now we’d like to share it with you as well.

You can read that article on the Torque News website, where you’ll see that the Titan is expected to include more—and bigger—powertrain options. First and foremost, you should see a Cummins diesel engine option, a 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel Engine that will deliver massive numbers. Of course, that diesel engine, and other powertrain options, will also help the Titan bring better gas mileage to the table for the next generation of truck drivers.

Check out the rest of Torque News’ wish list, and then maybe even add your own items to that list. And, of course, come see us here at James Ceranti to check out the Titan—and the rest of the Nissan lineup—for yourself today.

Nissan to Reveal New 2015 Murano at New York Show

New 2015 Murano Sneak PeekThe New York Auto Show is about two weeks away and Nissan has announced that it will unveil the new 2015 Murano there on April 16. To help get us excited for the reveal, Nissan has released a ten-second teaser video.

The shadowy video doesn’t really give much away save for some fine looking angular headlights and the hint of a possible “floating roof” design. It’s not a lot to go off of, but if Nissan’s recent history with concept is any indication, we here at James Ceranti Nissan feel that there is reason enough to be preemptively excited.

Car and Driver thinks the new Murano will resemble the stunning Resonance concept that appeared at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, and based on the glimpses from the video, we have to agree.

One thing’s for sure: the 2015 Nissan Murano will definitely be a ground-breaking design that will give us an idea of what we can expect from Nissan’s new design language. So, keep your eyes on New York on April 16 to see the big reveal. Once it’s seen the full light of day, you’ll be able to see it right here at our blog!

Nissan Aims for Detroit for 2016 Nissan Titan Debut

2016 Nissan Titan to Improve on Current Model with Additional Powertrain OptionsThe auto industry is always looking towards the future. It seems 2014 has barely begun, and we’re already talking about 2015 and even 2016 models. Our favorite carmaker already has plans for the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, where the brand will unveil the redesigned 2016 Nissan Titan.

According to Fred Diaz, Nissan’s North American senior vice president of sales, the redesigned Titan “will get us into 93 percent of the market segment.”

This is because the 2016 Nissan Titan will boast key options that previous generations have lacked. This includes engine options and a regular cab. Edmunds reports that the 2016 Titan should have three engine choices, including a V6, V8, and a diesel V6.

Diaz and Nissan Trucks just made waves recently at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, where the Frontier Diesel Runner Concept Powered by Cummins was revealed.

We think three powertrain options are great additions to the Titan, which is in need of some updates in order to catch the eye of discerning truck buyers. We’ll mark our calendars for Detroit Auto Show next January and keep our eyes out for the 2016 Nissan Titan reveal. In the meantime, stop out and see us here at James Ceranti Nissan to test drive a Titan or Frontier today!

Nissan’s New Sport Sedan Concept Offers Glimpse of Future Designs

Nissan's Sport Sedan Concept at 2014 NAIASIf you thought your tractor was sexy, wait until you check out Nissan’s new Sport Sedan Concept. Based on the ever-popular Maxima, the Sport Sedan takes on an edge as it captured the attention of attendees at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in its world debut.

Nissan’s Sport Sedan adds to a growing lineup that reflects the automaker’s next generation design vocabulary.

“Our new design direction mirrors the strength, power and capabilities of the engineering and innovation that serves as the foundation of every Nissan vehicle,” Shiro Nakamura, Nissan Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, said.

The Sport Sedan, glistening in “Strad-Amber” – a vibrant shade of burnt orange – keeps the Maxima’s 3.5-liter V6 engine with front-wheel drive.

The Sport Sedan Concept calls to mind movement itself with a fluid body design, sharp creases, V-shaped grille, and “floating” roof. Inside, diamond-shaped graphics incorporated in the seating create a three-dimensional quality.

Nissan aims to extend its reach to the upcoming generation as the company enhances the distinct design of future vehicles. We at James Ceranti Nissan think the next generation will have no problem ditching those bulky, green tractors for Nissan’s sleek, new Sport Sedan Concept.
