Always Innovative: The Technology of Nissan at Go Nissan North
While it wasn’t officially named Nissan Motor Company until 1934, Nissan has been around in one shape or another since 1911. Unsurprisingly, in over 107 years, the Nissan Motor Company has been part of —and contributed to— countless technological innovations. Nissan technology is always at the forefront, a mixture of intuitive design and driver convenience that continues to set Nissan vehicles ahead of the pack. Read on to learn more about some of the incredible technology that you’ll find in your Nissan!
Nissan’s XTRONIC CVT
For those unfamiliar, Nissan’s XTRONIC Continuously Variable Transmission (or CVT for short), is a transmission that eschews the familiar multi-gear system found in most vehicles for an incredibly efficient pulley system. XTRONIC CVT provides a steadier stream of power at all points, doesn’t go through the familiar gear hunting or awkward shifting of traditional transmissions, and provides exceptional fuel efficiency. If you’re interested in better fuel economy, or spend lots of time driving on hills or the highway, then a Nissan equipped with XTRONIC CVT is the vehicle for you. Find the XTRONIC CVT in the Altima, Juke, Maxima, Murano, Pathfinder, and more!
NissanConnectˢᵐ is the most intuitive infotainment system available, combining navigation, security, and of course entertainment, all with your safety in mind. Whether via touch or voice control, you’ve got easy access to emergency response services, vehicle maintenance, streaming audio and satellite radio, Google Maps, phone calls, texting, and even Twitter! There’s very little that NissanConnectˢᵐ can’t do, but one thing is certain—it’ll make every drive from here on out easier.
Taking a step closer to autonomous vehicles, Nissan’s ProPilot Assist is an advanced driver assistance system that helps ease the demands on drivers during long trips and the daily commute alike. Using front-mounted sensors and cameras, ProPILOT Assist works in conjunction with Nissan’s Intelligent Cruise Control and Steer Assist technologies to move your vehicle in a safe and efficient manner. Available on the imminently popular (not to mention 2018 IIHS Top Safety Pick) 2018 Nissan Rogue, watch for ProPILOT Assist to find its way to more Nissan vehicles in the near future.
