Nissan Navara EnGuard Concept Truck

Navara EnGuard Nissan recently revealed the Navara EnGuard concept truck at the Hannover Motor Show in Germany and enthusiasts everywhere can’t stop talking about it. This would-be emergency vehicle offers more capability and gives fans a new look at Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility vision. The Nissan Navara EnGuard concept is based on the award-winning Navara pickup or, as we know it in the United States, the Nissan Frontier.

The Navara EnGuard concept has the capability to be one of the most incredible emergency trucks to ever hit the road. This concept features two batteries that can recharged by the truck’s 2.3-liter twin-turbocharged diesel engine. The engine itself produces 187 horsepower but there’s much more to this model than meets the eye.

One of the highlights includes a DJI Phantom 4 drone that can reach an altitude of nearly 20,000 feet and display images on the truck’s 20.5-inch HD screen.

The truck’s style is something to be proud of and features a more off-road-ready look with more ground clearance than the standard Navara.

The Nissan Navara EnGuard concept could be a preview of the next-generation2018 Nissan Frontier but only time will tell if the concept will hit the production line.

Here as Valencia Nissan, we have our fingers crossed that the Navara EnGuard concept will see public roadways sooner rather than later!

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has an all-new design and will make its debut here at Valencia Nissan this fall. In addition to an eye-catching design and a powerful and efficient engine, the Nissan Pathfinder’s technology is built to impress and keep drivers and passengers connected while on the go.

With “family adventure-ready” connectivity, the new Pathfinder is set to become a favorite with families both big and small. Every Pathfinder model will come with a standard 8-inch color touch screen that will function in a similar way to a smartphone. There are also a set of “hard button” controls for drivers who prefer more tactile control.

Additional standard tech features include SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Bluetooth hands-free calling, and Bluetooth streaming audio. Drivers will be able to use voice commands to make a call and stream their favorite audio straight from their phone. Voice recognition has been enhanced with a new standard HD microphone.

For drivers who want even more technology, the available NissanConnect Services have been updated to include a wide range of features including an “SOS” emergency call button in the overhead console. Drivers can also take advantage of automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locator, and emergency calling.

If you’re interested in seeing the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder for yourself, give us a call and we’ll let you know as soon as it arrives on our showroom floor.

Nissan and Mitsubishi Will Now Have a Much Closer Relationship

Nissan and Mitsubishi will have a lot more in common than both being Japanese companies. Early last month, Nissan purchased a controlling stake in the faltering Mitsubishi Motors.

According to Reuters, Nissan purchased a 34% stake in Mitsubishi, which translates to around $2.2 billion. This investment will help the now scandal-ridden Mitsubishi come out of a hole, but it is good for Nissan, too.

Nissan has been struggling to gain traction in Southeast Asia, which is exactly where Mitsubishi has some of its biggest sales. With this new partnership, Nissan should get a better foothold for its own products.

In addition, Nissan and Mitsubishi will now share and develop technology together, which will help both companies save money through purchasing, production, and cooperation.

At a joint press conference in Japan, Nissan Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn, said, “We are determined to preserve and nurture the Mitsubishi Motors brand. We will help this company address the challenges it faces, particularly in restoring consumer trust in its fuel economy performance.”

What do you think about Nissan purchasing a significant portion of Mitsubishi? Do you think this will help Nissan or hurt them in the long run?
