A specially wrapped and equipped new 2016 Nissan Maxima will serve as the official Safety Car at Virginia International Raceway, located near Danville, Virginia, during the Oak Tree Grand Prix this weekend, Aug. 21-23.
Nissan is a brand on the move. And on a roll. The past two years have seen the back-to-back introductions of the segment-busting 2014 Rogue and 2015 Murano, which helped drive Nissan to record 2014 calendar year sales of 1,269,565 (+12.2%) in the United States.
There are many ways to celebrate car culture and historic vehicles. One is in museums, the other on the road. For this year's Monterey Motorsports Reunion, Nissan is taking a pair of museum cars – a 1967 Datsun 411 and 1972 Datsun 510 – filling the tires and gas tanks and putting them on the road. Throw in a showroom-fresh 2016 Nissan Maxima and you've got a rolling exhibition called "The Evolution of the Sports Sedan."
Three Nissan models have been recognized as being among the most appealing vehicles to own and drive in their segments in the just released J.D. Power 2015 U.S. Automotive, Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study℠ – led by the totally redesigned 2015 Nissan Murano crossover's top finish in the Midsize SUV category.
Nissan today announced that two 2015 vehicles won Best in Class awards in AutoPacific’s 19th annual Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSA): Nissan Murano – Best in Class Premium Mid-Size Crossover SUV; and Nissan Quest – Best in Class Minivan.
As Nissan readies to launch the 2016 Nissan Rogue this fall, demand for the boldly designed crossover has never been higher – a trend that is expected to continue with a number of significant enhancements for the new model year.
