If you're shopping for a new vehicle, you should really check out the new Nissan cars and SUVs. Virtually every Nissan is brand new or recently redesigned.

First there's the high-performance Nissan GT-R. It's not new but gets 15 extra horsepower, revised suspension and a few interior upgrades. Total output for the GT-R is now a whopping 545 hp.

The 2013 Nissan Sentra is all new. It can get up to 40 mpg on the highway and an equally impressive 30 mpg in the city.

Finally, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is no longer a truck-based SUV--it's now a car-based crossover. But it's larger interior, better fuel efficiency and more compelling family friendly features mean it should appeal to a wider variety of car buyers.
