The 2013 Nissan Rogue is one of seven Nissan vehicles being affected in the price cuts.

going to be forgotten about on the internet dealership lot.

Starting immediately and going indefinitely, Nissan has lowered the prices on seven models: the Altima, Armada, Juke, Maxima, Murano, Rogue and Sentra; all of which fell outside the competitive pool for prospective online buyers when they searched for cars based on a maximum price.

Each model is seeing a significant change in its MSRP. Nissan will be knocking $580 off the Altima, the leading seller for Nissan while the Armada will have $4,400 marked off. In addition, the Sentra will see a $730 price drop and the Rogue will be $2,300 cheaper. Nissan is cutting$1,290 off the high-end Juke, $1,460 from the low-end model of the Murano and $2,410 off the high end model, and $2,270 from the lower end model of the Maxima and $3,030 off the high end model.

Jose Munoz, senior vice president for sales and marketing for the Americas, said the price cut is not applied across the board, but “for the time being, we are applying it to the seven models.”

Bates’ Quest for a Cure

Over the past weekend, Bates Nissan, Direct Auto Insurance and K101.7 teamed up to host the Bates Nissan Quest for a Cure event.

We have been working to raise $1500 to donate to our Relay for Life team which will be participating in the Relay event on May 3 and 4 at Shoemaker High School in Killeen, TX. On Saturday, we were donating $1 for every test drive we had during our two hour event and while we were a little disappointed with only 11 test drives, we were happy with the turnout for the event overall.

We received two contributions from anonymous donors, and K101.7 gave away two pairs of two-day weekend passes for the Bloomin’ Temple Festival. We gave away lots of hamburgers and hotdogs and even got a few families into new cars! Overall, it was a great event.

Don’t forget, until next Wednesday, May 1st, we will be donating $1 for every new like on Facebook or follow on Twitter, so make sure to tell your friends, family and neighbors to head over to our sites and give us a like! We post social media specials and keep you up to date on events going on around Bates Nissan.

The NISMO made its appearance at the Chicao Auto Show this past weekend.

If you’ve stopped by Bates Nissan in the last year, the 2013 Nissan 370Z NISMO has undoubtedly caught your eye. Be prepared to surrender your other eye this summer when the all-new 2014 Nissan 370Z NISMO makes its way to our showroom. Nissan just unveiled this stunning work of art at the Chicago Auto Show alongside the 2013 Nissan JUKE NISMO.

The 2014 370Z NISMO keeps the incredible 350 horsepower of its predecessor, generated by a 3.7-liter V6 engine partnered with a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. The 370Z NISMO will also keep the sport-tuned suspension and brakes, as well as the 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels from the 2013 model. You can’t fix perfection, right?

So what will be different for the 2014 model? It’s all a matter of a style. Both the exterior and interior have been enhanced for even greater aesthetics. The outside will get an all-new dark gray coloring for the front and rear fascias, side mirrors, NISMO rear spoiler, and the lower side sills. Red pinstripes will complete the newly-decorated ensemble. A new color choice is being added for the exterior: Solid Red, which will replace Magma Red. On the inside, the 2014 model will sport a red NISMO tachometer, in addition to a new steering wheel that features Alcantara appointments and red accents.

To see all the other changes to the 2014 370Z NISMO, keep checking in here and be sure to visit Bates Nissan this summer when it arrives!

Bates Nissan collects Toys for Tots

In this time of giving thanks, Bates Nissan wants to recognize all we are thankful for by supporting the Toys for Tots program and making the holidays happier for the less fortunate in the Killeen area.

We ask that you help us fill this truck at our Killeen Nissan dealership with toys for needy area children. Just stop by our dealership with a new, unwrapped toy. These toys, along with others generously donated at other Toys for Tots collection areas, will be collected, sorted and distributed to kids who need them the most.

The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program states that their goal is “to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” They have been providing toys for children of financially burdened families for over 64 years.

The program has established relationships with church groups, social welfare agencies and other organizations within communities to help identify needy children and make sure they receive gifts at Christmas. Their goal this year is to collect 15,000 toys in Central Texas by the last day of the drive, December 15.

In addition to donating toys, you can also give of your time. Toys for Tots is also seeking volunteers to help collect, sort, and distribute the gifts.

Please help Bates Nissan support this worthy cause and ensure that the children of Central Texas enjoy a brighter, happier holiday.
