I just purchased a new truck from Key West. Robert Vanoverschot and Ivan Matulik actually made the process a pleasure. They listened to what I wanted, showed me some options across various price points, and then worked to get the perfect vehicle for me. No pressure, no up-sale, honest and I walked out knowing I got a good deal.
Nothing less than awesome!
Allan helped me out so much and went way out of his way to make sure that by the time I got to the dealership everything was ready to go after choosing my car, I couldn't be happier with the service and the product! Thank you so much for everything I'll be recommending you to everyone I know trying to get into a vehicle!
Allan helped us with getting the Ecosport and both my wife and I had a great experience with Allan he is easy to talk to and helpful.
It’s an unforgiving road - scattered with broken pavement and deep ruts, rising into a series of sharp-peaked hills. Its demands are many and its miles are long; and you curse under your breath, wondering why you thought a front-wheel-drive would prove up to this challenge.
Don’t fret, Seattle: you can tackle this road after you’ve slipped behind the wheel of the 2018 Nissan Rogue.
According to JD Power, the new Rogue proves a perfect complement to every all-terrain adventure - offering drivers best-in-class performance (170 HP and 175 lb.-ft of torque), superior speed (9.8-seconds for a 0 to 60 run) and smooth shifting (courtesy of the Xtronic transmission). Its true value, however, is the availability of an advanced AWD, which promises effortless backroad fun.
This seven-passenger platform delivers intuitive environment scanning, with integrated sensors noting both acceleration ratios and lane alignment. From this information it generates real-time calculations, adjusting steerage up to 30 times per second. This creates a seamless burst of traction, with all torque divided evenly between the wheels. Tire grippage is increased and the strut-front suspension provides optimal stiffness. This allows drivers to accommodate changing terrains with ease, relying on the AWD’s custom modes to bolster every response.
There’s no road too treacherous to conquer!

Unveiled last month at the 2018 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Nissan Smokin’ Titan was officially fired up this week for a four-city tour. Dubbed The Great Titan Meat Up, Nissan’s ultimate tailgating and barbecuing pickup brought truck and grill enthusiasts together to share their appreciation for brawny performance and delicious eats.
The Smokin' Titan kicked off its tour in Idaho City before making stops at Roaming Buffalo BBQ in Denver, Q39 BBQ in Kansas City, Salt + Smoke BBQ in St. Louis, and Central BBQ in Memphis. But, that was all just a pre-game event for this Saturday when the heat will be turned up at the Great Titan Meat Up in Pigeon Forge.
With celebrity chefs Cory Bahr and David Rose serving as judges, teams will be challenged to out-cook a Nissan executive team led by Billy Hayes, Division VP, Nissan Regional Operations, who is not only an outdoor cooking enthusiast, but one of the masterminds behind the Smokin’ Titan. Hayes will be joined by three other Nissan executives and will compete against five media organizations, as well as a team from Nissan Canton Assembly, where the Smokin' Titan was assembled.
It promises to be a sizzling competition! To follow along, check out @NissanUSATrucks on Instagram and Facebook or utilize the hashtags #SmokinTITAN and #TITANMeatUp to join in the conversation.

Across the pond, the 2018 Nissan Leaf has added a new trophy to its growing list of awards. The EV scored a five-star result in the revised European New Car Assessment Programme (also known as Euro NCAP), which was recently amended to include a number of new assessments that address key crash scenarios involving vulnerable road users, including cyclists and pedestrians.
This isn’t the Leaf’s first rodeo with the Euro NCAP. In 2011, it became the world’s first electric car to get a five-star rating from the safety organization. Seven years later and the Leaf continues to break ground – it is the first automobile to be examined under the Euro NCAP’s revised 2018 guidelines.
During the testing, it was found that adult occupant protection was particularly strong, earning the Leaf a 93 percent score, while its child occupant protection followed closely behind with 86 percent. In the pedestrian protection and safety assist areas, the 2018 Nissan Leaf scored 71 percent.
These high scores are a result of the Leaf’s standard safety features, which include Autonomous Emergency Braking, Intelligent Lane Intervention, and Lane Departure Warning. All systems can detect vulnerable road users and alert the driver of their proximity, thus mitigating a serious collision.
According to the Euro NCAP, the Leaf demonstrates that environmental friendliness does not need to come at the expense of improved safety – and we have to agree. Why choose one over the other when you can have both?

This week at Auto China 2018, Nissan launched the first electric vehicle built in China for Asian consumers and it has the whole world talking about the potential of a later global launch. The vehicle is called the Sylphy Zero Emission and it is based on the ever-popular and best-seller Nissan Leaf.
Boasting an all-electric powertrain, advanced technologies and a spacious cabin designed for convenience and comfort, the Sylphy features an extended drive range of 210 miles. It will also incorporate a full-size wheelbase, offering greater stability and interior legroom, as well as multi-layer ergonomic seating with heating options. A connectivity feature will allow the vehicle's audio and video to be remote-controlled from a mobile phone as well. From the sounds of it, the Sylphy is as cutting-edge as you can get.
As the first mass-production EV for the China market, Nissan also claims that it is one of 20 electrified models to be introduced over the next five years. The Sylphy Zero Emission will go on sale later in 2018 and more information about the specs and pricing will be available at that time.
Will we be lucky enough to test drive the Sylphy on North American soil? News of a global release has not been mentioned, but our team at Kirkland Nissan in Seattle is hopeful. To learn more about our current line-up of available EVs, contact our dealership today.
Across Europe it goes - a 2.5L beast. Its profile is lean; its roar is loud; and its 32-inch off-road tires allow it to stomp across even the toughest terrains. This is the 2018 Nissan Navara and it has no equal… overseas.
As Top Speed explains the new Navara has been released to strong acclaim in Europe - with drivers craving its athletic body and off-road sensibility. An 0.8-inch suspension lift yields class-leading ground clearance, allowing the platform to deliver a wading depth of 31.5-inches; while the 35-inch approach angle promises easy maneuvering, protecting the undercarriage from debris. A 24-inch breakover ramp further impresses, enabling riders to seek out deep ruts and sudden inclines (it adjusts the transfer case and propeller to more efficient mounting positions and keeps them away from unsteady terrains).
Through this, the 2018 Navara can roar down every road - pushing its 2.5L engine to the limits. It delivers 160 HP, with the electronic rear differential locking perfectly in place with each rev.
The Kirkland team must confess: we’re envious of Europe. We’d love to see the new Navara racing down the Washington backroads (its intuitive 4WD would prove a perfect a complement to every adventure); and, while there are no official production plans, critics do wonder if Nissan will bring it stateside to compete with the Ford Ranger. We have our fingers crossed and our lot ready.

There are few miles in this world more treacherous than those tucked within the Rocky Mountains. Across this chain of stone and snow sprawls a collection of shallow byways - all clinging to its sharp peaks (the tallest of which rises more than 14,000 feet above sea level). These paths are unforgiving and, for pick-up drivers, they often prove impossible to cross.
For those that favor the 2018 Titan, however, victory is assured.
According to Nissan, the 2018 Titan has just been named the Rocky Mountain Truck of the Year. This award - which was bestowed by top journalists of the western automotive press corps - celebrates off-road capabilities. Anchored by a 5.6L Endurance V8, this platform can effortlessly roll across even the toughest terrains, yielding 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission offers high-range gear shifts to promote optimum traction, while the four-wheel-drivetrain combines a locking rear differential with a double-wishbone suspension to ensure balanced handling. Integrated trailer sway control technology stabilizes every payload; and downhill speed regulators seamlessly adapt to changing inclines.
This allows the 2018 Titan to smoothly maneuver down every trail - and it places it above the market’s leading competitors. Nissan noted that the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press ranked this platform above both the Ford F-150 and the Dodge Ram 2500, proving that not all half-ton trucks are created equal.

The future of mobility has arrived - with Nissan unveiling its Brain-To-Vehicle technology. This collection of synapse detectors and pattern decoders will redefine the driving experience, bridging the gap between man and machine. Science is no longer fictional.
According to Nissan, the Brain-To-Vehicle system will serve as the first of its kind - delivering real-time scans of each driver’s thought patterns to refine acceleration, steerage, and other performance metrics. How is this possible? The answer lies in the form of intense analyzation.
Step One: drivers will don a proprietary skull-cap - which contains autonomous measurement systems. Electrodes will attach gently to the skin and provide direct connections to every brain wave.
Step Two: with each mile the Brain-To-Vehicle system will assess driver patterns, measuring sudden spikes in movement-related cortical potential (MRCP, which guides coordinated motions) and error-related potential (ERP, which delivers a flight-or-flight response in the wake of anxiety-inducing scenarios). These both release specific wave signals, making them easy to detect and observe.
Step Three: by recognizing when drivers are experiencing MCRP and ERP waves, the system can then intuitively chart a course of action - automatically adjusting vehicle speed, re-aligning lane position, and releasing forward collision scans. The intention is to interpret what riders feel, providing them with instantaneous support on the highway. Responses are faster and perfectly in-tune with changing conditions.
With the integration of Brain-To-Vehicle technology, Nissan will fuse its entire fleet with advanced automation - directly accessing thought signals to ensure immediate responses. Prepare, Seattle, for a new kind of road experience.
The water rises - tumbling steadily across a bank, winding its way to the pavement beyond. The current is quick; the mud is thick; and you frown inside your sedan, knowing its sloping chassis will prove thoroughly unsuitable for this adventure. It’s time to turn back.
It’s also time to seek out an SUV.
Nissan believes that every terrain can be conquered - even ones soaked in river water. This is why it’s paired the 2018 Armada with class-leading ground clearance, allowing drivers to roll over any obstacle with ease.
According to the Milford Mirror, the 2018 Armada dominates every road - with its massive body able to sail across each challenge. Resting on 18-inch aluminum wheels, this platform can effortlessly maneuver over rocks and rivers alike. Its extended wheelbase (121.1-inches) boasts an angled front track, which curves the 67.5-inch base upward to eliminate overhangs. The raised door arches offer 34.8-inches of lift-over height, while the double-wishbone suspension has been raised to elevate the entire chassis. This ensures both increased ground clearance and a more efficient ride, with Nissan able to bolster responses with stabilizing axles and shock absorbers.
When these elements combine they allow the 2018 Armada to achieve 9.1-inches of ground clearance - enabling drivers to rev past every terrain with the press of the pedal. The platform has been raised to ensure maximum capability and minimum underbody damage. Integrated skid plates and debris shields further enhance the experience, protecting each system from harm.

If you love the design, utility and technology attributes of Nissan’s best-selling Rogue, but have an itch for something sportier, smaller and with more urban street cred, the 2018 Nissan Rogue Sport deserves a closer look. This week, Nissan released a mid-year refresh of the crossover and it’s loaded with more standard features than ever before.
Now, drivers enjoy Auto Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert on all 2018.5 models. The mid-year update also includes standard Intelligent Cruise Control on the SL trim or by purchasing an SV Technology Package.
The real star of these standard inclusions is Auto Emergency Braking, which is already offered on seven other Nissan models (including the Altima, Leaf, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, Rogue and Sentra). With this Nissan Safety Shield technology, drivers are alerted of a potential collision with audible and visual alerts. If a braking response isn’t put into action, the Rogue Sport will intervene and stop the vehicle.
See how it works here:
The 2018 Rogue Sport is available in front-wheel drive or Intelligent All-Wheel Drive in three well-equipped grade levels – S, SV and SL. Power comes from the 2.0-liter DOHC 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine, which produces 141 horsepower. Other mechanical specs include Xtronic transmission with eco-mode and a four-wheel independent suspension. Due to the Rogue Sport’s compact design, it boasts impressive maneuverability and a fun-to-drive experience, making it a well-suited choice for urbanites.
