2012 Nissan Xterra, Frontier Best Off-Road

Edmunds.com recently released the results of the latest consumer’s poll, and the 2012 Nissan Xterra and Frontier both made the list of favorite off-roaders.

The 2012 Nissan Xterra is just as ready to get down and dirty as it is to haul groceries. The high ground clearance and truck-based body and suspension make the Xterra more than capable on rough terrain.

The Xterra is available in three trim levels, the X, S, and Pro-4X. All models are powered by a 4.0L V6 engine with 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. All models have a five-speed automatic transmission, with the addition of a six-speed manual option in the Pro-4X trim level. The Pro-4X is also the only model with standard four-wheel drive.

Also voted as one of the best off-roaders, the 2012 Nissan Frontier was a top pick from the small pickup class. Available in four trim levels, the S, SV, PRO-4X and SL, the Nissan Frontier is versatile enough to make it rough and rugged for off-roading, or smooth and practical for daily driving.

The 2012 Frontier offers two engine options, a 2.5L four cylinder that produces 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, and a 4.0L V6 with 261 hp and 288 lb-ft of torque.

2013 Nissan Pathfinder Car of the Year in Versatility

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

Bates Nissan is proud to announce that the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has been named by Popular Mechanics Car of the Year for versatility.

Citing the new unibody design and the more efficient V6 engine, Popular Mechanics called the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder “more spacious and more practical all around.”

The Pathfinder offers room for seven passengers, making it a viable alternative to the minivan for families. The new EZ Flex seats add to comfort and ease of access by allowing second-row seats to slide forward, with passengers strapped in, to allow third-row seat entry. The 2013 Pathfinder also offers 79.8 cubic feet of total cargo space, with additional in-floor storage under the third row, making it just as good for hauling stuff as for hauling people.

Fuel economy in the new Pathfinder is improved to 26 mpg highway by shaving 500 pounds from the body weight through unibody construction, changed from body-on-frame construction in previous models. The new frame also shifted the center of gravity lower, allowing a smoother ride and better handling.

The 2013 Pathfinder no longer offers a V8 engine, downsizing instead to a V6. While the power decreases slightly to 260hp, the towing capacity is still a respectable 5,000 pounds.

To see all the ways the flexible new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder can fit your life, test drive one today at Bates Nissan in Killeen. Our knowledgeable sales team can demonstrate all of the practical, innovative features, and can answer any questions you have at (254)699-7181.

Nissan JUKE Recognized Among Most Fuel-Efficient SUVs and Crossovers

2012 Nissan JUKE

2012 Nissan JUKE

As auto regulation standards become tougher and gas prices remain high, fuel efficiency is still a huge factor in new car shopping, especially for drivers looking for larger vehicles like crossovers and SUVs. Lucky for you, the Nissan JUKE was rated as one of the 10 Most Fuel-efficient SUVs and Crossovers by Kelley Blue Book.

The distinctive Nissan crossover achieves 27 city/32 highway mpg*, and a total of 29 mpg combined*, setting itself apart by more than just its quirky appearance.

According to Kelley Blue Book, “the JUKE really impresses with a genuinely fun-to-drive nature.” Making it fun to drive and fuel-efficient is the 1.6L direct-injection turbocharged engine that produces 188 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.

Other notable features of the 2012 Nissan JUKE are the Xtronic CVT transmission with sport mode and available all-wheel drive. The combination of the independent strut front suspension, front and rear stabilizer bars, and big tires produce dynamic performance, making the crossover as sporty as it is family-friendly.

The JUKE is also equipped with a long list of standard safety features, including the Nissan Advanced Air Bag System with dual-stage front airbags, roof-mounted side curtain airbags, LATCH system, front and rear crumple zones, and many others. The Nissan JUKE also sits taller and has oversized mirrors, increasing visibility and maneuverability.

Kelly Blue Book heaped praise upon the 2012 JUKE, saying “it takes guts to build a car like the 2012 Nissan JUKE, a radical little crossover that is part CUV, part sports car and part ultramodern rolling art.” If you’re looking for the perfect combination of versatility, utility, style, and fun, test drive a new JUKE at Bates Nissan in Killeen today. You can also visit our web site for details about incentives offered on the Nissan JUKE and many other new Nissan vehicles for drivers in central Texas.

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.
