The Most Exciting Feature of the 2018 Nissan Armada? A Mirror.

By autointernetmedia | Posted in 2018 Nissan Armada, 2018 Nissan Models, Nissan Armada features on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 at 5:18 PM

Nissan Armada

The 2018 Nissan Armada is making waves on Palm Springs Nissan dealer lots thanks to its superior design, awesome powertrain options and advanced security features. But the component that has Nissan fans most excited might surprise you: Folks are clamoring just to take a look at the new Nissan Armada’s rear view mirror.


Sounds silly, right? Well, this is no ordinary mirror.


The 2018 Nissan Armada’s Intelligent Rear View Mirror (I-RVM) uses a high-resolution camera mounted to the rear of the vehicle to project an image onto an LCD monitor built into the mirror. The video image allows drivers to see what’s behind them without trying to see around interior obstacles like cargo and rear headrests.


The Intelligent Rear View Mirror system also helps improve visibility in low-light conditions, dramatically reduces glare, and offers drivers an expanded field of view thanks to the camera’s wide angle lens.


Even if your Nissan Armada’s cargo area is piled high with luggage or groceries and you’ve got the kids or a pet in your back seat, you’ll be able to see clearly behind the car using the I-RVM system. You can even sync the mirror to your own custom needs–the option exists to use the I-RVM’s settings to sync the mirror to your garage door opener, control the brightness of the video image and more.


Of course, the traditional rear view mirror is still there. All drivers have to do is flip a switch located on the bottom of the mirror to access either the traditional rearview mirror system or the new Intelligent Rear View Mirror.


Naturally, the groundbreaking I-RVM system isn’t all that makes the 2018 Nissan Armada special. The SUV comes standard with a whole range of incredible, futuristic tech features, including NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM, an 8-inch multi-touch display, HD Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link with three years of trial access, Enhanced Voice Recognition, a Hands-Free Text Messaging Assistant, and plenty of additional USB ports to keep the whole family happy.


The new Armada is, after all, a family vehicle. The SUV seats up to 8 passengers in its ultra-roomy, comfortable interior. The Armada offers passenger 40 inches of second row headroom and 41 inches of second row legroom so you can be guaranteed that your daily commute will be comfortable no matter how large the car pool fam is.


Front seat passengers will enjoy 8-way power-adjustable bucket seats with heating and cooling. Heated second row seats are standard on certain Armada models. Ask a Nissan dealer near you for more information.


Ready to learn more about the 2018 Nissan Armada? Want to test out the new Intelligent Rear View Mirror system for yourself? Visit Palm Springs Nissan today.

Nissan Pathfinder vs. Toyota Highlander: Which SUV Comes Out On Top?

By autointernetmedia | Posted in 2019 Nissan Models, Nissan Pathfinder on Monday, August 20th, 2018 at 7:55 PM

Nissan Pathfinder

Today’s SUV market is practically bursting at the seams with options–everything from your sleek, sophisticated luxury trophy cars to your rugged, ultra-spacious people-movers is available on dealer lots. But out of all the popular high-end SUV models available today, the Toyota Highlander and the Nissan Pathfinder are the two ultimate top contenders.


Both vehicles offer luxury, practicality, plenty of tech upgrades and great powertrain options. But when you put the Pathfinder and the Highlander side by side, there’s just no question which SUV comes out on top.


The Nissan Pathfinder is the SUV to beat.


Although the Highlander is described by Toyota as “sleek and refined,” we’re confident that you can find a car on any Nissan dealer lot that could give the Highlander a run for its money. Frankly, the Highlander has nothing on the Pathfinder’s gorgeous, expertly-designed exterior. With a strong sense of adventure, character and presence, the Pathfinder was made to stand out.


And inside, the Pathfinder just keeps on shining thanks to its three rows of ample seating, full rear hatch and hyper-functional driver amenities. The vehicle comes with a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen monitor to provide drivers with intuitive access to a variety of vehicle systems and settings like the standard NissanConnect with Voice Recognition for audio, Bluetooth and vehicle information.


Although the Highlander comes with a respectable range of driver-assist and safety technology, the Pathfinder once again has it beat. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, for example, comes with standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), an innovative Rear Door Alert (RDA) system, standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), an available Remote Engine Start function, and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).


And when it comes to what’s under the hood, we think you’ll agree that the Nissan Pathfinder once again steals first place.


The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder comes with an advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine with Nissan’s Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) system to provide better wide-open throttle performance and improved fuel economy and emissions performance. The new engine generates 284 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque and has an EPA mileage rating of 20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for two-wheel drive models.


But we haven’t even told you the best part yet: The new Pathfinder has a class-leading maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. That means you can tow two-axle recreational trailers without even breaking a sweat. We’d like to see the Highlander try that. (Spoiler alert: The 2018 Toyota Highlander’s towing capacity maxes out at 5,000 pounds.)


Visit us at Palm Springs Nissan to learn more about the Nissan Pathfinder. Still not convinced that it’s the better option over the Toyota Highlander? No problem–our staff of Nissan nerds can do this all day long.

Titan XD Surfcamp

By autointernetmedia | Posted in Nissan News, Nissan Titan XD Surfcamp, Palm Springs Nissan on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 at 4:11 PM
Nissan Titan XD Surfcamp

The Nissan Titan truck that you know and love is coming your way in a special edition. The Titan Surfcamp began as the Titan Midnight Edition, but it was transformed to be ready for the beach. Learn more of the details of this vehicle below.

Autoblog describes the Nissan Titan Surfcamp, “Based on a factory-fresh, Mississippi-built Titan XD with the 5.0-liter Cummins turbodiesel, the Surfcamp is more or less a beach bungalow on wheels. It comes with a variety of boards, including surfboards and a paddleboard. To get all the sand and sea salt off at the end of the day, there’s a solar-powered shower!”

As this vehicle is called the Surfcamp, there is also a place to spend the night. The Nissan Titan Surfcamp has a roof-mounted tent where you can relax after a day full of adventures at the beach. This vehicle has more than just fun and games, though. The Nissan Titan Surfcamp also has the power and ability to take on surfside adventures in the sand, with some great performance and capability features.

According to Motor Trend, the Surfcamp has some great updates. Motor Trend tells us, “The Titan Surfcamp starts out as a 2018 Titan XD Midnight Edition, brought to life through a wildly comprehensive and diverse range of upgrades and accessories. A meaty set of Nitto Ridge Grappler tires measuring 35/12.5/17 at all four corners are designed for bounding effortlessly through sand, while an ICON lift kit boosts ground clearance by 3 inches over the Titan’s standard ride height.”

On the inside of the Titan Surfcamp, you can also find some unique features. This truck has wetsuit-inspired seat covers and heavy-duty floor mats to contain the sand from the beach.

The Nissan Titan Surfcamp is clearly ready to drive through the sand and spend all day having adventures. Recently, Nissan has been creating some adventure-themed vehicles to celebrate the active lifestyle and those customers that like adventure.

If you are looking to upgrade to a vehicle like the Titan XD Surfcamp, you can do so at Palm Springs Nissan. Palm Springs Nissan is a Nissan dealer near you, and we have a great selection of new and used cars, trucks, and SUVs.

2018 Nissan Leaf and Rogue Stand Strong

By autointernetmedia | Posted in 2018 Nissan Models on Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 at 7:54 PM

If you are in the market for a 2018 Nissan Leaf or Rogue, get ready for some welcome news. As of this year, Nissan has officially introduced its latest driver-assist technology, ProPilot Assist, in two of its vehicles: the 2018 Nissan LEAF electric vehicle and the 2018 Nissan Rogue crossover. You can find both at Palm Springs Nissan, the go-to destination for Nissan’s on sale, in Cathedral City on Kyle Road. For those new to the technology, ProPilot Assist is paving the way for the next level of autonomous driving, and it is easy and intuitive to use.


Those who currently drive or are looking to make their next ride a Rogue are most likely already aware the comfortable, luxurious, and highly rated crossover is one of Nissan’s top sellers in the U.S. for good reason. Its size is solid and sound, and its fuel efficiency is among the best of any crossover on the market. Since Nissan announced it was going to add its ProPilot system to the Rogue for the 2018 model year, the belief among consumers has been anonymously positive in that the technology is at the point Nissan is confident in including it in most of its mainstream models.


Although ProPilot is a step in the direction of autonomous driving, do not get too comfy with the idea of turning your car on “auto pilot” mode just yet. Nissan has been firm in their clarification that, while ProPilot does assist the driver, it does not (and cannot) completely drive the car without the driver. The driver is still responsible for the car. End of story. We have no doubt the technology will get to the “autopilot” level someday, but it definitely will not happen this year.


On that note, Nissan has stated they want consumers to understand the most recent version of ProPilot is the first of many steps towards fully autonomous driving. This indicates that in the next five to ten years, we can expect to see multi-lane capabilities not limited to lane changing as further driver-assistance options.


The ProPilot technology included in the Rogue and LEAF is designed to help a driver on the highway or freeway remain centered in a lane of traffic, particularly while responding to various vehicle inputs that detect the driver’s input, other vehicles, and road conditions. The recommended lane-centering prompts are given via the steering wheel. Feeling out the brief bump from the wheel whenever the car wants you to stay centered comes naturally and impulsively after a few tries. ProPilot does take into account cruise control, which is also very easy to control and adjust.


If you want to start using ProPilot in your 2018 Rogue or LEAF, you must first push down the blue ProPilot button on the steering wheel. Doing this feels similar to activating the standard adaptive cruise control button available in all Nissan models. You will know ProPilot is operational when the driver information screen in the center of the front row notifies it is active and cruise control is set. Even if, for some reason, ProPilot does not work, adaptive cruise control will still function normally.


As soon as ProPilot Assist is activated, the system will maneuver the vehicle to keep it centered in its lane as well as most challenging highway-geared corners. In order to switch lanes or override the system, simply do so as if ProPilot was not engaged. When you flip your turn signal, ProPilot disengages temporarily and ceases steering prompting. Once you have successfully changed lanes, ProPilot will automatically resume (but not before beeping to alert the driver).


Take a 2018 Nissan Rogue or 2018 Nissan LEAF out for a spin to test the ProPilot Assist system at Palm Springs Nissan this week. Give us, your local Nissan dealer a call at (760) 328-2800 or visit us at 68177 Kyle Road in Cathedral City, CA 92234. The Palm Springs Nissan team looks forward to serving you!


2018 Nissan Pathfinder vs. 2018 Honda Pilot

By autointernetmedia | Posted in Nissan Crossovers on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 at 5:38 PM
Nissan Pathfinder

Whether on the road or driving off-road, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder comes with some significant advantages over the 2018 Honda Pilot. Make no mistake, they are both solid vehicles designed with bulletproof engineering among other amenities for maximum buyer appeal. The conversation surrounding which is a better model in general almost depends on what you value in your transportation lifestyle. To make things easier on your eyes, we at Palm Springs Nissan have compiled a few bullet points breaking down how the Pilot compares to the Pathfinder.


The Price is Right?


The Honda Pilot starts at $31,875 while the Nissan Pathfinder goes for $32,015. They may look similar in size, but the Pathfinder actually comes with more space for people and cargo, which explains the slightly higher price tag. Both come with quality resale and reliability, but the Pathfinder has just a tad more cruising capability and comfort than the Pilot.


Designed for Drivers with Specific Destinations


The infotainment interfaces featured in both the Pilot and Pathfinder are, for the most part, the same in terms of efficiency and operation. While we’re discussing similarities, let’s talk shop about both vehicles coming with all-wheel drive. They are equally slick (classy would be the second best word to describe both) and lovely to admire when the light catches their polish. The Pathfinder underwent a heavy makeover last year, and Nissan’s decision to include automatic emergency braking as standard is just one of the updates the model received. A rear door alert was added to the Pathfinder, a technological safety feature the Pilot already possessed. Seating capacity is well above average in both models, with the Pathfinder having 3-row seating and the Pilot able to occupy eight passengers.


The Pilot is considered a family-friendly cruiser with enough capability to retain an unbeatable resale value. In contrast, the Pathfinder is built with more power to reach speeds faster and pass trucks and other large carriers on the highway with much more ease. It can also effectively tackle any and every off-road turf drivers may come across with its all-wheel-drive system which includes hill descent control for navigating steep slopes.


A sturdy V6 engine ensures excellent driving in the Pilot, but both cars have similarly matched fuel economies. The Pathfinder is also built with a V6 engine for strong acceleration, as previously mentioned. Back to the three rows of seats, the Pathfinder is easy to move around in, and that third row is not difficult to reach at all. What’s even more impressive is this SUV offers robust towing capacity.



In terms of tech, Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility included with the Pathfinder provides the driver with greater awareness of his or her surroundings. The Pathfinder’s Advanced Drive-Assist Display is also an impressive amenity for navigating the road ahead, and the Motion Activated Liftgate automatically opens to give easy access to the car’s versatile interior.


How Do They Rank?


As far as Midsize SUVs come, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder was ranked #17 by U.S. News, and the Pilot was voted as KBB’s Midsize SUV Best Buy for 2018. The Pathfinder currently has a score of 7.7 out of 10 for its U.S. News consensus, and that rating is based on an evaluation of 49 pieces of research and data elements using multiple sources.


Come See for Yourself


At Palm Springs Nissan, we embrace all types of SUVs like the Pilot and Pathfinder. Only you can decide which works best for you, and the most effective way to do that is not by scrolling through a website (even one as well designed as ours). Come visit us and test-drive one of these award-winning midsize crossovers at a Nissan dealer near you. We have a large selection of new and pre-owned vehicles waiting for you!
