Nissan’s Easy-Fill Tire Support

Nissan Rogue Sport Next for ProPilot

Exciting expansions are in store for several Nissan crossover models. Nissan recently announced the Nissan Rogue Sport will join the technological ranks of the Rogue, Leaf, and the 2019 Altima by getting the ProPilot Assist semi-autonomous system. The feature will be added to two more crossovers in Nissan dealers like Palm Springs Nissan across North America later this year. This means the Rogue Sport in the U.S. and the Qashqai in Canada will get the technology that is currently installed in 120,000 vehicles worldwide.

The Rogue Sport, according to Nissan, is the fourth model of its kind in the United States to get the ProPilot Assist treatment. As mentioned, the Rogue, the Leaf (all-electric), and the 2019 Altima midsize sedan (which is predicted to be released late this year) all employ ProPilot.

ProPilot helps with steering, acceleration and braking on highways as well as making sure drivers stay centered in their respective lanes. The system can also recognize other cars and adjust the car’s acceleration accordingly. It navigates stop-and-go traffic and maintains a set speed and distance from fellow vehicles in front of or behind the driver. The feature was recently tested on a drive from Detroit to Chicago by Autoblog.

The feature combines Steering Assist and Intelligent Cruise Control for use in both heavy and flowing traffic scenarios. Though it includes “Pilot” in its name, the system is not a self-driving feature but rather a “hands-on” driver assist system. It was developed and designed specifically for roads and drivers in the U.S., and it endured over 50,000 miles of tests on cross-country roads. When it debuted in 2016 on the Japanese-market Serena minivan, Nissan announced ProPilot would also be available on the European Qashqai, one of the automaker’s bestsellers in Europe, and Japan’s X-Trail.

Nissan released a statement noting that 20 of its models in over 20 markets are set to adopt the ProPilot system by the end of its fiscal 2022. According to a Nissan representative, the expansion of ProPilot Assist is part of Nissan’s “M.O.V.E. to 2022” business plan. This project features an increase of new hybrids and electric cars. Nissan’s goal is to sell one million electrified models, and that includes both hybrids and all-electric cars by the year 2022. The company expects electrified models to make up 20 to 30 percent of its U.S. sales by 2025, which includes an influx of new hybrids and electric cars. Nissan hopes to sell one million electrified models, including both hybrids and all-electric cars by 2022, and expects electrified models to make up 20 to 30 percent of its U.S. sales by 2025. Vehicles built to be completely autonomous are also predicted to fit into Nissan’s future plans.
