Nissan to Advertise in Super Bowl XLIX

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015


Nissan announced that it will not release Super Bowl commercial teasers but instead will run a very unique campaign leading up to the Super Bowl XLIX. This will be the first time the Japanese automaker will advertise during the big game in nearly two years. Nissan’s pre-game campaign focuses on the journey that only dads, but also moms and children, face in trying to make family a priority while striving to balance work. “After nearly a two-decade absence from the Super Bowl as an advertiser, we want to maintain the excitement and anticipation of game day. With so many commercials airing before the big game, I fundamentally believe it takes away much of the magic of showing the commercial on the biggest stage of the year.  Prior to the Super Bowl, we do however want to build suspense around our story, while provoking a social conversation around the overarching theme. Our highly creative YouTube content creators help us do just that as we get ready to share our spot with America on Super Bowl Sunday,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing and Operations U.S., Nissan North America, Inc.

Nissan Showcases New Titan Pickup at the Detroit Auto Show

Friday, January 16th, 2015

 

The new Nissan TITAN recently made its global debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, where it made its official global debut. The automaker believes that this is the perfect time for the new Titan model to flourish since the truck segment has sold more than two million full-size pickups in the United States each year. Carlos Ghosn, President and CEO, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., said: “We see opportunity – opportunity in the unmet needs of today’s American truck customers. Until now, if you wanted a V8 diesel, you simply didn’t have an option. Each year, 75,000 U,S, buyers move up from light duty to heavy duty pickups. However, just as many people move the other way. That’s 150,000 owners who are struggling to find the right work truck. With the 2016 Nissan Titan, we were just not going for best in class. We really are creating a new class and positioning ourselves as the best offer.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:

Original Designer Redesigns 2016 Nissan Titan Model

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

 

The redesigned Nissan Titan was redesigned by Diane Allen, the original designer of the Titan pickup truck in 2002. Allen has been with Nissan for nearly thirty years where she is known for her tremendous efforts with the original Titan pickup and its redesign. In a recent interview, Allen stated that  for the model refresh she really wanted to focus on the small details; she said: “We didn’t want it to be stylish. When you think of stylish, you think of more of feminine line work. Feminine detailing. That’s not the Titan. In the three years we’ve been working on it, there were two year where it was the most important project we had. And yet at the same time, we were also working on the new Maxima and the next Sentra, and also an Infiniti.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:
