The Nissan Titan - Made In America!


YES!  Even though Nissan is an international company, Nissan trucks are in built right here in the USA. In fact, both the Nissan Titan and the Nissan Frontier rank in the top 5 on the “most American trucks” list, above the Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra. When you buy a new Nissan Titan, you’re also buying American.


Where are Nissan trucks built?

The new Nissan Titan isn’t just built in America – it was designed here too. The 2016 Titan was designed in California, engineered in Michigan, and tested in the Arizona desert. Like many other Nissans, it’s assembled at the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi. Although the transmission is sourced from Japan, both of the 2016 Nissan Titan’s powerful engines are also 100% American-built. The diesel engine is made in Columbus, Indiana, while the gasoline engine is made in Tennessee. Over half of the Nissan Titan’s other parts are also sourced from the US and Canada.

Like the Nissan Titan, the majority of the Nissan Frontier’s parts are from the United States and Canada. The transmission and some of the engines are Japanese, but the Nissan Frontier is also American-built in Canton, Mississippi.

Coolest truck bed cargo box I have ever seen by Cargo Glide : SEMA 2017



While at SEMA 2017 I spotted this amazing cargo box on a slide out system for trucks and vans. This thing slides out incredibly far transforming your truck into a "command center".

For marksmen, it can hold all your firearms, ammo, targets and support gear.

 If you are a tradesman you can clearly see the possibilities. I especially like the roof top cargo rack that slides over to the side and down so you don't need to climb into your truck bed to access your gear. CargoGlide also makes slide out racks for vans and other pickups.

Joel’s Mobile Detailing Downsizes from Full Size Van to Nissan NV200



This Nissan NV200  is being used by Joel's Mobile Detailing in Tampa, Florida.



This van provides an excellent presentation; it is an unobtrusive when parked in the driveway of customers in deed restricted neighborhoods. Joel was detailing an SUV in the Westchase neighborhood, Tampa, FL. Notice that he is working in the customer’s driveway; the van has nice, unobtrusive graphics on removable magnetic signs.

Word of Mouth at Work! Joel takes a break answers questions about his services to a neighbor .

Joel reports that the new NV200 van replaced a full size van that he used for many years. This van provides enough space for a Water Tank and Generator as well as all the other supplies needed for his detailing operation. He reports that the NV200 has excellent acceleration and ride and consumes about ½ the fuel as his previous full size van used.

How Nissan, NASA will help you park in the future


Nissan's remote human operator would take action if one of the automaker's driverless cars encountered a problem.

Nissan has turned to NASA to help it with what could be a challenging task in the future: remotely parking an autonomous vehicle after the driver has exited the car.

After Nissan Deputy General Manager for R&D Toshiro Muramatsu described the scenario to a group of journalists visiting the automaker’s technology center in Atsugi, Japan, I jokingly asked him why we would need rocket scientists to help us park in the future. He laughed and said its not NASA’s expertise in space travel that Nissan covets, it is the agency’s knowledge of driving an unmanned vehicle that is a long way from home.

NASA’s Visual Environment for Remote Virtual Exploration (VERVE) software, used to visualize and supervise interplanetary robots, was the starting point for Nissan’s Seamless Autonomous Mobility system or SAM.

“This is more related to the Mars Rover than rocket science. How do they navigate around an obstacle like a rock on Mars?” he said.

Part of the automaker’s move toward fully autonomous driving, what it calls Nissan Intelligent Integration, is the use of a remote human operator to help “fast track” the realization of driverless travel. Nissan’s remote human operator would take action if there was a problem or emergency encountered during the driverless car's operation.

Separately, Nissan Senior Vice President of Research and Advanced Engineering Takao Asami said that NASA’s expertise will help Nissan’s autonomous cars break the rules when necessary, such as driving in the opposing lane to get around a construction site.

“It’s common sense that you have to do this, but the machine doesn’t have the common sense,” Asami said. “To solve this, the human operator will monitor the difficulties and instruct the car on how to handle this. Once the instruction is made, we can copy it and broadcast it to all of the vehicles in the field.”
