The Nissan Titan has been a high-performing, top-selling truck since it first hit the
mainstream auto market more than 15 years ago. It is versatile, powerful, functional,
comfortable, and luxurious—and it just keeps getting better. Nissan’s 2019 Titan comes

year.

Top 3 New Features of the 2019 Nissan Titan

2019 brought with it quite a few updates, upgrades, and new features for the Nissan
Titan. Most of these notable improvements made to the Nissan Titan between the 2018
and 2019 model years are tech-related.

The Nissan Titan hit the mainstream auto market for 2019 with a host of upgraded
high-tech features, including a brand-new standard infotainment system, updated safety
alerts, and a new premium audio system.

Upgraded Infotainment

A high-tech car connectivity system has become a standard expectation for new cars on
the mainstream auto market. Many major automaker brands have developed their own
exclusive car connectivity technology and multimedia infotainment systems that are
focused on delivering both information and entertainment to drivers and passengers
while minimizing distracted driving. Nissan has been criticized in the past for their lack
of progress as compared with their competitors in the realm of high-tech car connectivity
technology. However, the release of the 2019 Nissan Titan revealed Nissan’s
brand-new touchscreen multimedia system—and it doesn’t disappoint.

All 2019 Nissan Titan models come equipped with an infotainment system as a
standard feature. Nissan’s multimedia infotainment system includes a built-in 7.0-inch
color touchscreen display monitor, optional GPS navigation and a host of entertainment
options—including Bluetooth streaming audio.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are also brand-new standard features on
all Nissan Titan models for the 2019 model year. This upgrade allows drivers to easily
connect their Android or Apple smartphone to their Titan’s infotainment system via
Bluetooth and access the mobile apps and other information on their smartphone
directly from the infotainment display screen built into their Titan truck.

Updated Safety Alerts

Certain trim levels of the 2019 Nissan Titan are now available with Rear Door Alert. This
active safety feature reminds Nissan drivers to check their backseat before they get out
of their car.

Rear Door Alert is designed to keep every living thing in the car safe by helping prevent
drivers from accidentally leaving a child or pet in the backseat of the car. This safety
feature is newly available for the king cab and crew cab Titan trucks.

New Premium Audio System

Music is an integral part of any car ride for many drivers and passengers alike. Nissan
stepped up the audio capabilities of the Titan for the 2019 model year with a brand-new
premium Fender audio system that is available for all Titan models as of 2019.
This premium audio system is complementary to the 2019 Titan’s brand-new
infotainment system. It supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth streaming
audio to deliver the best surround sound throughout the Titan’s cabin.

Best Nissan Hybrid Cars

Nissan has tried to get a head start by creating it's own Nissan Hybrids. Over the past decade, there has been a major shift in the mainstream auto industry. Advancing technology and strengthening the global emphasis on prioritizing the reduction
of carbon emissions has contributed to a gradual yet significant shift away from fully
gas-powered cars toward hybrid and all-electric vehicles.

Nissan is a very well-known and reputable auto manufacturer and brand. This
multinational automaker company was founded in 1933 and is based in
Japan—although they distribute the cars they produce worldwide. Nissan vehicles are
high-performing, reliable, and diverse.

Currently, Nissan also reigns as the highest seller of electric cars among all major
automakers around the world. Nissan has devoted significant resources over the past
two-plus decades to develop their line-up of hybrid and all-electric vehicles. In fact,
Nissan released the first-ever globally-distributed all-electric car when they unveiled the
100% electric Nissan LEAF in 2010. A decade later, Nissan’s LEAF remains the
top-selling electric vehicle of all time.

2019 Nissan Rogue Hybrid

Nissan’s current vehicle lineup includes multiple hybrid and all-electric vehicles. While going all-electric has a number of benefits, making the switch from fully gas-powered to all-electric is not a practical choice for every driver. Many drivers who want to save gas money and reduce their carbon footprint while prioritizing both eco-friendliness and convenience choose to drive a hybrid gas-electric vehicle instead.

 

 

Each Nissan hybrid vehicle is equipped with a parallel hybrid system that includes both a traditional gas-powered engine and an electric lithium-ion battery. If you are in the market for a hybrid car, keep reading to explore Nissan’s expansive and diverse selection of high-performing, reliable and efficient hybrid vehicles.

Nissan Altima Hybrid

The Altima Hybrid is a mid-size passenger sedan that seats 5 passengers in its
spacious, comfortable cabin. It is a safe, dependable vehicle that is perfect for families
and commuters alike.

Both powerful and efficient, the 2019 Nissan Altima Hybrid is equipped with either a
182-horsepower, 2.0-L 4-cylinder or 236-horsepower, 2.5-L 4-cylinder engine and
averages 28 MPG on city streets and reaches up to 39 MPG on the highway. Nissan’s
2019 Altima also comes with a budget-friendly price tag. This comfortable, functional,
and reliable commuter and family car has a starting price of just $24,000. If you’re in the
market for a dependable family-friendly mid-size sedan that will last, the Nissan Altima
Hybrid could be the right choice for you.

Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is a full-size SUV that is functional as well as eco-friendly
and fuel-efficient. Hybrid cars that are both efficient and powerful are rare, but Nissan’s
Pathfinder offers the best of both worlds. Unfortunately, Nissan discontinued their
Pathfinder hybrid model after the 2015 model year—but you can still buy a pre-owned
model.

With a 250-horsepower engine and a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds,
the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is ready to put in work. This powerful hybrid SUV
reaches an average of 25 MPG on city streets and 28 MPG on the highway. While this
mileage might seem somewhat low when compared to that of other smaller, less
powerful hybrid vehicles, it is impressively efficient for a powerful full-size hybrid SUV.
As Nissan’s Pathfinder Hybrid models are only available used, their starting prices vary.

Nissan Murano Hybrid

The Nissan Murano Hybrid is another Nissan hybrid SUV. It was removed from Nissan’s vehicle
lineup after the 2016 model year, but pre-owned Murano Hybrid models are still readily
available on the market.

Nissan’s 2016 Murano is functional and offers a good amount of power with its 2.5-L
4-cylinder internal combustion engine and maximum towing capacity of up to 1,500
pounds. Due to its smaller size, it is slightly more fuel-efficient than the larger
Pathfinder—reaching an average of 28 MPG on city streets and 31 MPG on the
highway.

Nissan Rogue HEV

The Nissan Rogue Hybrid is a compact SUV that is comfortable, spacious, and makes
an excellent family car.

Nissan’s 2019 Rogue Hybrid is one of Nissan’s most fuel-efficient hybrid SUVs due to
its compact frame. It reaches an average of 33 MPG on city streets and 35 MPG on the
highway. The 2019 Rogue Hybrid is also budget-friendly and is available at a starting
price of about $27,700.

2020 Versa: Big Bonuses for Bigger Budget

 

While it is no longer America’s cheapest car, the 2020 Versa’s higher price tag packs in plenty of value.

 

The Upgraded 2020 Versa

 

The new 2020 Versa may have gave up the crown for most affordable vehicle, but it gained a whole lot of value in return. With a new starting MSRP of $15,625, the redesigned 2020 Vera is now $2270 more than before. Car and Driver found that to be a small price to pay for how much better this year’s Versa is. 

 

More for Your Money

 

In Car and Driver’s test drive of the 2020 Versa, they were able to take two of the three trims out for a spin.

Please welcome the 2020 Versa Please Welcome the 2020 Versa

They were impressed by the updated mid-level SV, but the real winner was the  top-trim-tier SR. They noted that this trim now sports 17-inch wheels straight from the factory, a first for the Versa.

Interior improvement was a big focus of the 2020 redesign. Car and Driver noted higher-quality smooth-grain plastic material design was abundant. “Sturdier knobs” make the Versa’s switchgear look and feel much more pleasing than the cheap dials of the past. Folks in the front seat will now enjoy three additional inches of leg space. 

The previously sedate sedan has gained a bit of get-up-and-go, a welcome change from the sleepy demeanor of the past. Car and Driver noted the “pleasantly firm ride” and “accurate steering” as big winners in the update. Improved dampers made for better handling when cornering as well as when taking on tough terrain. 

Safety also so substantial improvement in the 2020 Versa refresh. Drivers will benefit from aids such as automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and automatic high-beams. Standard on all Versas, those technologies can be expanded upon when you opt for a higher-tier trim. 

Things under the hood were also refined. Thanks to engine tweaking, the 2020 Versa now sports 13 additional horsepower for a total of 122. Seven more pounds-feet of torque were added as well, taking the Versa to 114 now. Updates to the Xtronic CVT meant that the transmission can eek out 1 more mpg, for a total of 35. Better belt design made for an improved response while cruising below 25 mph. If you’re looking for a manual option, it still exists, exclusive to the base-level S trim. 

 

The affordable 2020 Versa may cost a bit more than before, but you’ll love these updates. Come check out our selection today at Metro Nissan Redlands!
