Is this the next-generation of electrification? Nissan has just revealed its 2018 LEAF Nismo - a battery-powered hatchback that will bring sport-tuned performance to the highway. Prepare, Tacoma, for a new kind of EV.
As CNET explains, the 2018 LEAF Nismo fuses everyday efficiency with staggering power. Anchored still by Nissan’s signature 40-kWh lithium-ion battery (which yields 147 HP and 236 lb.-ft of torque), this spry platform races from 0 to 60 in a mere 7.5 seconds. It now rests on 18-inch alloy wheels, with Continental ContiSportContact tires delivering wide treads that grip curves; while new advanced shock absorbers promise a smooth ride, effortlessly countering friction through their hydraulic-pressured designs. The traction control system has been subtly tweaked to provide greater force distribution for the FWD (this eliminates under-steerage, allowing drivers to maintain a seamless highway arc); and the low center of gravity promotes athletic responses. The car measures a lean 176-inches long, 71-inches wide, and 62-inches high: promoting rally-worthy handling on every turn.
Through this the 2018 LEAF Nismo proves a dynamic force in Tacoma. Don’t fret, though, EV fans: this platform will still deliver economy, with its battery system generating 125 MPGe in the city and 100 MPGe on the highway. An estimated drive-range of 151 miles is also anticipated.
With the release of the 2018 LEAF Nismo Nissan brings peerless power to the hybrid market. To learn more about this platform contact our team today!

The all-new 2018 Nissan Kicks recently hit showrooms across North America, which means that automotive journalists have been clamoring for test drives as a way to review the subcompact SUV. One of those publications is Consumer Reports – they recently reviewed the mid-range SV trim and, boy, did they love it.
They hailed the vehicle for its value, especially for urban drivers and those in warmer states who don’t need the enhanced traction of all-wheel drive. Pricing starts at just $17,990 for the base S, $19,690 for the SV and $20,290 for the SR. For new car shoppers on a budget, you can’t beat that.
The 2018 Kicks also scored top marks with Consumer Reports for its spacious interior. Even though the body of the subcompact SUV is diminutive, the Kicks’ upright styling creates a roomy rear seat with good knee and headroom space (33.2 inches and 38.5 inches, respectively). Cargo capacity is generous too with up to 53.1 cubic feet of storage with the rear row folded down. On the road, the cabin is quiet and relaxing with less road and wind noise than most of its rivals – something highway commuters can appreciate.
If you’ve been anxious to test drive the all-new 2018 Kicks, contact Kirkland Nissan in Seattle, Washington, to book your appointment today.

In an exclusive interview with Autocar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Nissan’s design head Alfonso Albaisa was quoted as saying that the next-generation Nissan GT-R could become the “fastest super-sports car in the world.” Quite the bold statement, but for those who follow Nissan closely, you know that the sky is the limit for the innovative automaker.
The GT-R is currently in the very early stages of design and engineering – the supercar’s powertrain and all-new platform have yet to be finalized. Speculators have been questioning whether the GT-R will be electrified. In the interview, Albaisa he admitted that electrification was possible, but not confirmed.
“We are definitely making a new platform and our goal is clear: the GT-R has to be the quickest car of its kind,” he told the publication. “It has to own the track. And it has to play the advanced technology game; but, that doesn’t mean it has to be electric.”
As for its styling, Albaisa said the next-gen GT-R would be imposing, have presence and be a beast. He even went so far as to call the supercar “the world’s fastest brick” with “less wing” and more heft to it.
Based on Albaisa’s comments in the article, it appears that the production car is still several years away with some industry insiders commenting that we may not see the new GT-R debut until the next decade. Good things come to those who wait!
In the meantime, you can experience excitement on Seattle’s roads in a stock 2018 GT-R. To schedule a test drive, contact our team at Kirkland Nissan.

According to a recent online article on CleanTechnica.com, Nissan has released unofficial details about the upcoming 2019 Leaf.
While speaking at a press event regarding the brand’s involvement in Formula E racing, Brian Maragno, Nissan’s Director of EV Marketing and Sales, was quoted as saying that the forthcoming 2019 Leaf will feature a larger battery and a more robust 200 horsepower motor.
He added, “When you have a bigger battery with more capacity, it just opens up the door to be able to have more output. A larger capacity battery lends itself towards two things. One is obvious: more range. The other one, which is maybe a little less obvious, but equally as true, is additional horsepower and output.”
An official range for the 2019 Leaf has not been released, but some EV speculators have commented that it should drive for at least 200 miles on a single charge – if not more.
Nissan is also being coy about an official release date; however, our team at Kirkland Nissan expects that a launch date will be shared as early as this fall or as late as next spring.
Until then, why not visit our dealership in Seattle, Washington, for a test drive in a 2018 Nissan Leaf? With its current 40-kWh battery, 142-horsepower motor and an 150 mile range, it might be all that you need in an all-electric vehicle.

According to an Automobile World article, the Nissan Leaf NISMO will go on sale July 31, 2018, in Japan. This latest vehicle will marry the advanced technologies of the world’s best-selling all-electric car with the sporty styling and performance of the NISMO series.
On the exterior, the vehicle features the characteristic layered double wings of the NISMO, which is expected to improve downforce without compromising drag coefficient. It rides on custom 18-inch aluminum wheels that minimize air resistance, while the body of the Leaf NISMO signals high-performance with a low center of gravity.
Inside, the sporty interior appeals to the tuner-at-heart with slick NISMO’s custom red accents and a three-spoke steering wheel with a red center mark. The instrument panel also boasts a custom carbon-like finish, and the electronic shift has a gun-metal chrome finish.
On the road, the Nissan Leaf NISMO handles with gusto thanks to the custom suspension system, which has been fine-tuned for comfort, and an internal computer that allows for strong acceleration responses. As the vehicle whips through twists and turns, the electric power steering and Intelligent Trace Control provide stabilized cornering and lane-tracing abilities for added support.
Sounds magnificent, doesn't it?
Currently, Nissan doesn’t plan to roll-out the Leaf NISMO to international markets, but one can hope. In the meantime, stop by Kirkland Nissan to test drive the 2018 Leaf EV to experience its zero emissions performance.
The great unknown too often proves frustrating. You seek out those hidden trails and forgotten horizons - only to find your car battered by loose gravel, broken pavement, and layers of dust. It’s simply too much to endure.
Nissan sympathizes - which is why it’s fused the 2018 Armada Platinum with a series of fascia upgrades. This crossover delivers off-road utility, making it ideal for Tacoma drivers who demand more than sedan performance. The pioneer spirit can now continue.
As the Boston Herald explains, the 2018 Armada Platinum has been tailored for adventure. Its massive frame - which measures 209-inches long, 80-inches wide, and 76-inches high - yields a stable ride, resting on all-season tires and 20-inch machine-finished aluminum wheels. Louvered fenders shield the chassis from debris, deftly deflecting flying rocks; while flared splash guards protect the undercarriage. Chrome accents define the grille, side-view mirrors, and running boards (this sturdy material will endure Washington’s worst weather with ease, offering a long-lasting shine); and LED low-beam headlamps illuminate every corner, allowing drivers to more efficiently avoid rough terrains.
To further emphasize utility, the 2018 Armada also features rugged steel paneling - with high-strength beams anchoring the frame. This defends against sudden collisions (the doors and fenders are engineered to absorb impacts and disperse friction, allowing the platform to maintain its structural integrity with greater precision). No environment will prove too great to conquer.

The speed crown may soon rest upon a new chassis - with Nissan declaring that its 2019 GT-R will be the fastest sports car in the world. Such a statement has drawn curiosity and confusion in equal measure, with critics uncertain if the brand can keep its promise.
The Kirkland Nissan team, however, has full faith in the new GT-R. After all, it will serve as a direct successor to the record-breaking 2018 model.
As The Drive explains, Nissan is gearing up for highway domination - certain that its 2019 GT-R will prove unbeatable on straightaways and sharp curves alike. While official specs remain scarce, critics anticipate that this car will mimic the performance ratios of the 2018 version (which is anchored by a potent 3.8L V6). 700 HP is expected and torque values could rise as much as 10%, revving to more than 500 lb.-ft.
How will Nissan achieve such staggering power? The answer would lie in its engine design - which should pair twin-turbochargers with a high-capacity tuner. This would raise the redline past 7,000 RPMs and it would allow the car to deliver pure V6 performance (a 9.0:1 compression ratio would deliver exceptional combustion, while double overhead camshafts would enhance air intake levels to optimize temperature). No official top-speed ratings have been released, but many expect the GT-R to surpass 200 MPH.

Off-road performance has just received a diesel upgrade - with Nissan delivering the 2018 Titan XD to the Washington market. This heavy-duty platform promises class-leading capability, reveling in its ever-surging redline (3,200 RPM); and it proves deft with each mile, introducing drivers to pure V8 power.
Are you ready, Everett?
As the Sentinel Source explains, the 2018 Titan XD has been engineered to impress. Anchored by a 5.0L Cummins V8 engine, this diesel platform generates 310 HP and 555 lb.-ft of torque. Turbochargers growl beneath its hood, providing two-stage capability (this helps to stabilize the redline and promote a fluid acceleration); while ceramic glow plugs conduct currents at optimal ratios to ensure a seamless ignition sequence. Piezo-style injectors maintain proper fuel levels; and an advanced particulate filter strips away corrosive materials to create a stronger, cleaner air flow.
To further enhance the off-road experience, Nissan pairs this platform with a six-speed Aisin automatic transmission - which boasts a low-to-high gear range that promotes superior towing. This allows the Titan to seamlessly accommodate heavy loads, utilizing transfer case technology to ensure more than 12,000 pounds of conventional trailering. No other diesel truck can compare.
