New Nissan Cars
The all-electric Leaf may be getting most of the headlines, but Nissan offers a wide array of vehicles, including the 370Z sports car, family-friendly Altima and the full-size Titan pickup. Read on to learn more about all of the new Nissan cars, trucks and SUVs, as well as updates to existing models.
2013 Nissan 370Z
The sporty 370Z receives a facelift for 2013. Updates include subtly revised front-end styling, new wheel designs and LED running lights. The 370Z's Sport Package also adds sport suspension and red brake calipers for 2013.
2013 Nissan Altima
The Altima sedan is completely redesigned for 2013, while the coupe carries over largely unchanged. In addition to new styling inside and out, the all-new Altima gains a new more efficient "Xtronic" CVT transmission with either a 4-cylinder or V6 engine, offering for up to 38 mpg on the highway.
2013 Nissan Armada
Nissan's largest SUV adds Bluetooth and a USB port as standard equipment for 2013. The Armada also adds a new Platinum Reserve package, which includes 20-inch wheels and dark chrome accents.
2013 Nissan Cube
Aside from losing its base-level 1.8 trim, the distinctive Cube is largely unchanged for 2013.
2013 Nissan Frontier
Although Nissan has not yet announced 2013 updates to the Frontier pickup, we're not expecting many changes for the midsize truck.
2013 Nissan GT-R
The wild GT-R boasts several upgrades for 2013 tho help justify a hefty $6,870 price hike over last year's base model. The GT-R now starts at just under $98,000. While drivers will likely appreciate the standard backup camera, the 2013 GT-R's main draw is 15 extra horsepower, for a grand total of 545.
2013 Nissan Juke
In addition to minor changes like new paint colors and an available Rockford Fosgate EcoPunch sound system, the Juke adds two new trims for 2013. The Midnight Edition offers black wheels and mirrors, while the Juke NISMO includes 18-in wheels, sport suspension and sport seats.
2013 Nissan Leaf
Although Nissan has yet to release official updates for the 2013 Leaf, we're expecting the hatchback to offer a more efficient heater, a dark cloth interior and possibly a new base model.
2013 Nissan Maxima
Minor changes mark the new model year for the Maxima, which now offers an available Bose Audio Package. The sedan also offers a new SV Value Package, while the Sport Package adds a backup camera.
2013 Nissan Murano
After a facelift last year, Nissan's midsize Murano crossover receives only minor changes for 2013. Those changes include some newly available safety features--such as a blind spot alert system and a lane departure warning--for upscale SL and LE models.
2013 Nissan NV
For Nissan's boxy NV full-size van, the 2013 model year brings only a vinyl strip to the center of its cloth seats designed to prevent wear. A smaller version, dubbed the NV200, will likely be rolled out to shoppers ahead of its debut next fall as New York City's "Taxi of Tomorrow."
2013 Nissan Pathfinder
The Nissan Pathfinder SUV is fully redesigned for 2013, abandoning its old truck-based body-on-frame design for a more efficient and comfortable car-based unibody architecture. A 260-hp 3.5-liter V6 replaces last year's 4.0-liter engine, while the V8 is discontinued altogether. The Pathfinder offers many new safety and convenience features along with a fuel-saving CVT automatic transmission.
2013 Nissan Quest
The 2013 Quest minivan adds two new features: a standard rear-seat entertainment system on SV models and an AroundView camera that's standard on upscale LE variants.
2013 Nissan Rogue
The compact Rogue crossover gains only minor updates for 2013. Rogue S Special Edition models add standard Bluetooth, while a new SV Premium Edition offers automatic climate control, Bose audio and a navigation system.
2013 Nissan Sentra
Nissan's compact Sentra sedan is fully redesigned for 2013, growing in size and offering more equipment. While it carries over last year's 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine, upgrades include LED lighting, an optional backup camera and available NissanConnect infotainment technology with navigation.
2013 Nissan Titan
Updates to the full-size Titan pickup are minimal for 2013 and include a new tailgate design, a revised steering wheel and--on upscale SL models--a standard backup camera and navigation system. Titan PRO-4X and SL models are also now available with a power sunroof and rear-seat DVD player.
2013 Nissan Versa
The subcompact Versa sedan is carried over largely unchanged after a full redesign last year. Nissan has not yet announced if 2013 will bring an update to the Versa hatchback, which still retains the older design of the original model.
2013 Nissan Xterra
Nissan has not yet announced any updates to its 2013 Xterra. We expect the brawny SUV to carry over mostly unchanged for the new model year.
