ProPilot Assist: Nissan’s Smart Technology

Thursday, September 13th, 2018


ProPilot Assist

Nissan is known for its great vehicles & smart technology, because of the strong belief that smart technology can improve driver and passenger safety. A fairly new Nissan technology advancement is known as ProPilot Assist. 

How does ProPilot Assist help drivers?

This technology works like a really smart cruise control, helping helps drivers using cruise control to:

  • stay in their lane,
  • maintain an appropriate distance between cars,
  • keep the vehicle centered in the lane, and
  • stay moving or stopped as traffic dictates.

It was first introduced on the 2018 Rogue. These features can be operated easily by simply pressing a blue button on the steering wheel. It is primarily intended to reduce driver fatigue on long stretches of travel. You must keep your hands on the steering wheel, but can relax them, as well as your feet, as the the vehicle does most of the heavy work for you!

How to use ProPilot Assist:

Some of our team made the following video to help you see ProPilot Assist in action. Check it out & come by and test drive a new Rogue today to see this feature in action yourself!

2017 Nissan Titan2017 Titan Cayenne

The 2017 Nissan Titan was designed with comfort, style, and the ability to get the job done. The Titan’s rugged looks paired with its strength and convenience make it the go-to truck for even the biggest tasks.

The Titan has a smart layout with plenty of room. The interior is comfortable with a quality feel but also has the durability and versatility expected in a truck. Throughout the interior are premium materials, from the seats to the glove compartment. The zero-gravity seats are even weather-resistant. The front seats can be heated or cooled, and the back seats can be heated. Even the steering wheel can be warmed to the comfort of the driver.

The placement of the center stack gives the driver easy access to every button and control, including the climate control system and the centrally located, full-color 7-inch display. By moving the shift lever to the steering column, extra room was created in the center console, leaving plenty of extra storage space and room to stretch out. The middle console even has room for a small laptop. The glove compartment handle is placed closer to the center stack to make it easier for the driver to reach.

The Nissan Intelligent Key allows for the driver to get in and go with the convenient Push Button Start, as long as the key is along for the ride. The Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control can adjust temperature and airflow for a quick cool down, or it can warm up the cabin, defrost windows and the windshield, and can even turn on the available heated steering wheel and outside mirrors.

The Nissan Titan’s rear seat gives plenty of stretch-out room and offers up all kinds of options, from a handy work surface to available lockable under-seat storage bins to a and a flat loading floor.

These are just a few of the many features of the 2017 Nissan Titan that elevate it above the competition. All in all, the Titan is a smart choice for any car or truck shopper looking for a vehicle that can do it all.

Why does my AC blow out hot air?

Friday, August 7th, 2015

Well, it’s that time of the year again. It’s just so stinkin’ hot outside! Have you ever thought your air conditioner was broken because it wouldn’t blow out cold air fast enough? We’ve all been there. The funny thing is that your A/C is most likely not broken, it’s just working a little harder than usual in the hotter months. Here are some key points to think about when understand how air conditioning works:

  • “Conditioned” air is the air that has had the heat removed. It is the heat that is transferred (removed from vehicle) leaving you with cooler air.
  • Moisture “stores” heat so the higher the humidity in Nashville, the more difficult it is to remove the heat.
  • Keep in mind that the “evaporator” that removes the heat is a relatively small cube that fits under the dash in the vehicle. That evaporator attempts to remove the heat as the air passes through, using a section that is only about 7 x 3 inches thick.
