Nissan Foundation awards $730,000 in grants to 29 organizations promoting the value of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity

Nissan Foundation promotes cultural diversity in America
  • In 26th year, Nissan Foundation maintains its singular focus on recognizing nonprofits promoting respect among racial and cultural groups
  • The Nissan Foundation annually awards grants to nonprofits in California, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee and Texas
  • Nissan will accept Letters of Intent for 2019 grant cycle beginning in October
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nissan Foundation is awarding $730,000 in grants to 29 nonprofit organizations for its 2018 grant cycle. The nonprofit recipients are located in Southern California, North Central Texas, Middle Tennessee, Central Mississippi, Eastern Michigan and the New York and Atlanta metro areas.

Over its 26-year history, the Nissan Foundation has awarded more than $10 million to approximately 120 organizations promoting respect and understanding among cultural and ethnic groups.

"The Nissan Foundation has a proud history of recognizing and supporting organizations working to promote the value of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity," said Nissan Foundation President Scott Becker, who is also senior vice president, Administration, Nissan North America, Inc. "We're thrilled to once again honor organizations making a real impact in this regard."

In 1992, Nissan North America formed the Nissan Foundation in response to the civil unrest that occurred near Nissan's then U.S. headquarters in Southern California following the Rodney King trial verdict. Every year since, the Nissan Foundation has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations that offer educational programs that inform, inspire and celebrate diversity among the various cultural and ethnic groups that make up society.

"These organizations do extremely important work in our communities," said Vicki Smith, executive director, Nissan Foundation. "Many grantee organizations are bringing cultural diversity to life in compelling ways, while others focus on the challenges of eliminating prejudice and discrimination. Each organization is making a valuable contribution to building respect and greater understanding among people – not just in their communities, but often on a national level."

Among the organizations receiving a 2018 Nissan Foundation grant is the Nashville Public Library Foundation, which is receiving its third grant from the Nissan Foundation this year. The Nashville Public Library was named the 2017 Library of the Year by Library Journal Magazine, recognizing its profound service to the community, creativity, leadership and innovation in developing community programs. The library started the "Civil Rights and a Civil Society" program as a training experience for law enforcement officials, a platform for discussing complex community dynamics through a historical framework. Over the past year the program has expanded to include community organizations, schools, corporate groups and delegations from other cities. The Nashville Public Library will use its 2018 Nissan Foundation grant to support continued expansion of the program.
Another Nissan Foundation 2018 grantee is the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding, a secular, nonprofit that promotes mutual respect with practical programs that bridge religious difference and combat prejudice in schools, workplaces, health care settings and combat zones.

Through a public education program called "Combating Extremism," Tanenbaum disseminates education materials that address fear, misinformation and prejudice. The resources include fact sheets on current issues such as white supremacy and the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar. Materials include targeted questions for use by teachers, religious leaders, community organizers and parents.

Tanenbaum will use its 2018 Nissan Foundation grant to further its outreach efforts, including the creation of six new resources.

The Nissan Foundation initially reviewed 101 letters of intent and 39 proposals from nonprofits in seven U.S. states where Nissan operates before awarding grants for 2018.

2018 Nissan Frontier Surprises Full-Size Truck Owner

 http://cars.typepad.com/.a/6a00d83451b3c669e2022ad3534747200c-pi

A Pickup Enthusiast's Takeaway by Mark Williams

Though I try to stay objective when reviewing vehicles, I've owned six full-size pickup trucks and never considered anything smaller. The Frontier S proved it is a completely viable ground support vehicle for my vintage motoring hobby, plus it can be employed in countless other uses. The only thing it couldn't do for me was trailer one of my vintage cars. Now that I think about it, I don't trailer my cars anyway. The money saved here would certainly offset having to make occasional arrangements for a project or parts car hauL.

Nissan brand ties for most awards in J.D. Power 2018 Initial Quality Study (IQS)


 The 2018 Nissan Frontier was the top-rated midsize pickup for the third consecutive year in the 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan topped three vehicle segments and finished in the top three in two others in the 2018 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS). J.D. Power IQS is the industry benchmark for new vehicle quality. This year, the Nissan brand improved by eight problems per hundred vehicles (PP100) to an overall average of just 85 PP100, which was best performance of all non-luxury Japanese brands.

The 2018 Nissan Frontier was the top-rated Midsize Pickup for the third consecutive year, while Maxima won Large Car honors with 57 PP100, the second highest score of any vehicle in the study. The popular Nissan Altima took top honors in the competitive Midsize Car segment with a 65 PP100 score, good for sixth among all vehicles in the survey and an 18-point improvement from the 2017 study.

The all-new 100-percent electric Nissan LEAF was another bright spot among many for the brand, with a 17-point improvement in initial vehicle quality over the car's previous generation surveyed in 2017.

“Nissan's J.D. Power IQS results for 2018 are encouraging because they reflect customer satisfaction directly from the people who buy and lease our vehicles,” said Mark Swenson, vice president, Total Customer Satisfaction, Nissan North America. “Positive IQS performance is a tribute to the ongoing efforts of Nissan Engineering, R&D, Quality and Manufacturing teams around the world, as well as our many global supplier partners. It is rewarding for us to see positive movement in J.D. Power IQS for three years running.”

Nissan's nine PP100 improvement marks the brand's third year of significant improvement in the IQS report. Almost 76,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2018 model-year vehicles were surveyed for 233 potential problems among 33 brands and 240 models from February through May 2018 for this year's J.D. Power IQS report.

Nissan's good news went beyond vehicle nameplates. Its massive Smyrna manufacturing plant, the largest production volume assembly plant in North America, was awarded Bronze designation for its System Two (car line) tying for third best in quality performance among North American Manufacturing facilities. System Two assembles the Altima, Maxima and LEAF EV. Adding to the positive manufacturing news; Smyrna System One (SUV line), Canton 2, MS, and Aguascalientes 1, Mexico also scored above the industry average.

Nissan Hits Overland Expo West With Armada Mountain Patrol Concept

.
 DSC_4294_preview II

The Overland Expo West is the place you want to be if your truck sees more dirt than asphalt in its overall use. The event is an ever-expanding conference of all things camping and "overlanding," the practice of driving cross-country with as little use of paved paths as possible. The overlanding community is a big one, with some serious money being thrown around to create self-sufficient, go-anywhere, live-off-the-grid machines.

So, it makes sense that Nissan would debut its latest crowd-sourced concept truck, the Armada Mountain Patrol. Nissan had great publicity success with last year's Titan XD Pro-4X Project Basecamp pickup truck and figured it would try again this year with the Armada full-size SUV. Nissan let the public vote on the features and parts it wanted to see on the Mountain Patrol using its social media outlets, with the finished product on display at the recent expo.

The concept started as a new all-wheel-drive 2018 Armada equipped with a 5.6-liter V-8 engine making 390 horsepower. From there, the public voted on what parts they wanted to see on the Mountain Patrol, and it ended up with a laundry list of fun parts. A four-person Cascadia Vehicle Tents rooftop-mounted pop-up Mt. Shasta tent was fitted to the top of the tent along with a Rhino-Rack awning. An additional Alps Mountaineering pop-up tent, sleeping bag and chairs is included in case four berths isn't enough. Polishing off the roof is a Baja Designs LED light bar, matching the lights mounted in the bumper and wheel wells.

Team PUTC Smokes Team Nissan in Tennessee Cook-Off

Nissan BBQ Titan Meatup

The Great Titan Meat Up was a two-part event set against the lovely hills in and around Pigeon Forge, Tenn. It was designed to showcase the off-road prowess of Nissan's Titan half-ton and Titan XD pickup trucks as well as put Nissan's Smokin' Titan concept to the ultimate test: a BBQ cook-off.
The Smokin' Titan is the brainchild of Billy Hayes, Nissan's vice president of regional operations for North America, who is a huge smoked meat pit boss. The truck came about after Hayes asked in a meeting, "What if we built a smoker into a Titan pickup?" One thing led to another and a truck was born. You can read all about the Smokin' Titan here, introduced earlier this year at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. Since then it's traversed the country from Idaho to Tennessee to the Meat Up, hitting four barbecue hot spots along the way. It will be making appearances all summer at various festivals and cook-offs across the country.

Dark horse: Nissan's 'Midnight' Frontier punches above its weight

 2018 Nissan Frontier Midnight Edition

Look around: just about all of the latest full-size pickups proliferating on America's roads have descriptions like "larger in every dimension." They're boasting they can do more, but they're also taller to see over and harder to maneuver in the country's many saturated, dense driving environments. What happened to the smaller but often surprisingly useful trucks that could thread the needle just as well in urban concrete as off the pavement?

That's a question that particularly applies for tradesmen and fleets in cities and surrounding metro regions relying on the do-all pickup truck. It's one the Japanese automakers have long been good at answering, with offerings like Toyota's Tacoma logging more than 20 years of sales in the United States. General Motors has its Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, and Ford is about to leap back into the class with its reincarnated Ranger.

But the smaller, more compact pickup has perhaps had its most consistent place over the years at Nissan, which began rolling them off assembly lines in the early 1930s under its former name Datsun. And Nissan's current midsize Frontier, which also has been sold on these shores for more than two decades, offers some very full-size-like prowess and utility — particularly in the last dozen years or so, courtesy of its available (and large for the segment) 24-valve 4.0L V6.

Electric Powertrains Are the Future. Will Fleets Be Ready?

 Many automakers are making a switch to producing battery-electric and hybrid electric vehicles across all vehicle classes. Image:Josh Bauer/NREL

Most readers of Government Fleet are seasoned professionals pursuing careers either in public fleet management or in corporate roles in support of public sector fleets. For a moment, however, put aside your current career history and aspirations and try to remember when you were a younger person, weighing career options and considering just what path to take.

The public fleet industry is on the threshold of a truly cosmic shift, and it’s quite possible that young people today are looking at our industry and questioning those options. We should, as those young people may be doing, consider what this shift will mean when it occurs.

The shift will be toward a predominance of electromotive powertrain technology and away from the internal combustion engine (ICE). Is it true that the demise of the ICE is greatly overstated, or, should we, like those young people still contemplating their career paths, be reading the tea leaves and presume they portend a very different future for us?

Truckin' Tennessee Trails in a Nissan Titan XD


30-nissan-titan-2018-angle--blue--dynamic--exterior--front--off-road II

Nissan's Titan pickup truck is the new kid at school — picked on, not given any respect, overlooked when it comes time to choose teams for sports. But that's OK; Nissan seems to relish being the underdog of the pickup class as it gives the automaker freedom to do things a little out of the box. The latest version of the Mississippi-built Titan has been out for a couple of years now, and Titans are still a rare sight in most parts of the country. But that doesn't bother the Nissan crew; they're soldiering along with a truck that they're eager to prove is as capable as domestic-brand pickups.

With that in mind, I found myself in the parking lot of the Hilton at McGhee Tyson Airport staring at a 2018 Titan half-ton and Titan XD pickups as journalists converged upon Knoxville, Tenn., for the first part of Nissan's Great Titan Meat Up. The Meat Up was the latest in a series of special events designed to showcase the Titan in the wild. Meat Up weekend kicked off with a day off-roading in the Smoky Mountains followed by a smoked meat cooking competition in Pigeon Forge.
A Mix of Off-Road Titans

The off-road event took us into the hills of Windrock Park, one of the largest off-road parks in the country encompassing more than 72,000 acres laced with more than 300 miles of off-highway trails that accommodate everything from side-by-sides to dirt bikes to full-size 4x4 trucks like the Titans. Our fleet was a mix of Titan half tons with the 390-horsepower, 5.6-liter Endurance V-8 and Titan XDs — Nissan's 'tweener pickup that's not quite a half ton, not quite a heavy duty — powered by a 310-hp, turbo-diesel 5.0-liter Cummins V-8. All trucks were the Pro-4X off-road trim, with higher ride heights, all-terrain tires, Bilstein shocks, an electronic locking rear differential and some additional underbody skid-plate protection that came in handy on the trails.

Nissan NV Cargo named ‘2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Award’ winner


Popular Nissan NV Cargo continues to add value to versatility with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo commercial van is the "2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Award" winner in the van category. The Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards represent the website's ongoing effort to highlight vehicle value for shoppers beyond the initial purchase price. The awards recognize the brands and models with the highest projected residual value after five years.

"Cost of ownership and operation is a critical factor in the commercial van segment, and the Nissan NV Cargo – with its rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup – is designed as a true workhorse for commercial use2," said Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing, Nissan North America, Inc. "The Edmunds award for highest projected 5-year residual value is a great third party confirmation of the NV Cargo's high quality and durability."

The NV Cargo, along with the 4-row/12-passenger NV Passenger and NV200 compact van, is sold through select Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide. All NV models come with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty1 – featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. See dealer for limited warranty details.

"Buying a new car is a huge financial decision, and our 2018 Edmunds Best Retained Value Awards are designed to help shoppers discover the vehicles that can help them get the most out of their investment," said Avi Steinlauf, Edmunds' CEO. "This year's winners underscore a commitment to quality and reliability, and are good bets to hold their value over the course of ownership."

About the 2018 Nissan NV Cargo
The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo van provides exceptional utility thanks to a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheelwell housings and nearly vertical sidewalls – room enough to fit two 40x48-inch pallets, 10-foot piping or 4x8-foot drywall sheets. Along with maximizing cargo space, the sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification. The Nissan NV Cargo provides rugged body-on-frame construction across the entire lineup, including an available High Roof with Body-on-Frame construction – the only van in the segment3 to offer this, providing most users the ability to walk, stand and work in the cargo area.

For the 2018 model year, all NV Cargo grades come equipped with standard RearView Monitor, 5.0-inch color display audio (5.8-inch standard on SL grade), Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant and USB connection port for iPod® interface and other compatible devices. In addition, the previous Power Package option content – power windows with driver's side one-touch down, power door locks with central locking, and Remote Keyless Entry – is now standard on S grade.

The 2018 Nissan NV Cargo is offered in three well-equipped models – the V6-equipped NV1500; the NV2500 HD, which is offered with V6 and V8 engines; and the NV3500 HD with a standard V8 engine. All three models are available with the Standard Roof, while the High Roof body is offered in the NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD models only.

Nissan Smokin’ TITAN begins its road-tripping adventure to The Great TITAN Meat Up


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan's Smokin' TITAN is fired up and ready to roll. The ultimate tailgating and barbecuing pickup truck1, unveiled last month at the  2018 Work Truck Show, has officially departed for a four-city tour en route to The Great TITAN Meat Up, where – for the first time ever – Smokin' TITAN will be fully utilized and put to the test during a cooking competition among media members and Nissan executives in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., April 27-28.

"Beginning as a TITAN XD King Cab straight from the Nissan Canton, Miss. Assembly Plant – where every TITAN and TITAN XD is assembled – Smokin' TITAN is a dream project vehicle for tailgating and barbecuing enthusiasts like myself, and I can't think of a better way to showcase it than at – and along the way to – The Great TITAN Meat Up," said Billy Hayes, division vice president, Nissan Regional Operations, and a brainchild behind the vehicle. "I am very excited to get out there and show the world what this truck can do!"

Smokin' TITAN BBQ Trail Road Trip
Following its departure from Idaho City today, Smokin' TITAN will visit the following cities and locations along the way to the Great TITAN Meat Up:
Updates will be posted along the route and at each location via the @NissanUSATrucks Instagram and Facebook page, and fans can utilize the hashtags #SmokinTITAN and #TITANMeatUp to join in the conversation.


Great TITAN Meat Up
On April 28 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., the heat will be turned up a notch at the Great TITAN Meat Up. With celebrity chefs Cory Bahr and David Rose serving as official judges, each of the competing teams will be challenged to out-cook a Nissan executive team led by Hayes, an outdoor cooking enthusiast. Hayes will be joined on his team by Brian Maragno, director, EV Marketing & Sales; Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles Sales & Marketing; and Kevin Yeoh, senior manager, Truck and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan Canada.
Competing against Hayes and his team will be five different media organizations, as well as a team from Nissan Canton Assembly, where the Smokin' TITAN and all TITAN and TITAN XD vehicles are assembled.

Nissan Smokin' Titan at 2018 Work Truck Show



Taking barbeque to another level, Nissan is debuting the world’s first fully integrated in-truck-bed smoker and mobile kitchen – a specially modified 2018 TITAN XD Gas King Cab dubbed “Smokin’ TITAN1.” Designed as a dream project vehicle for tailgating and barbecuing enthusiasts, Smokin’ TITAN features a custom flatbed with a built-in Lang BBQ smoker and an abundance of chef-friendly features. The truck will be on display this weekend at the 2018 Work Truck Show, the largest work truck event in North America.

“With its available innovative bed features, lockable TITAN boxes, Rockford Fosgate premium audio system and luxurious interior, the TITAN XD is a fantastic tailgating truck as is,” said Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc. “But the incredible enhancements made to convert a stock TITAN into the Smokin’ TITAN – a built-in smoker, stove and spice rack – make it a dream for those who love to spend time with friends and family smoking meat, as I do myself.” The project truck started as a stock TITAN XD Gas King Cab – straight from the Canton, Mississippi, factory floor. The transformation to Smokin’ TITAN began with the addition of a custom CM Truck Beds aluminum flatbed – allowing space for three food prep stations each featuring a Partner Steel aluminum double burner prep stove alongside a Churrasco Brazilian Wood cutting board. A Teton Steel custom on-board 24x24 sink and water storage system is accessible with an easy step up from the flatbed. The self-contained sink and water system also can be interchanged with a Yeti Cooler when cold storage is more the priority. Utilizing TITAN’s flat load floor in the second row of the King Cab, an ARB 50-qt. Fridge Freezer and Slide was added to the backseat along with a custom built spice rack.

The heart of Smokin’ TITAN lies inside the custom trailer behind the truck. Since food smoking can create heat up to 600 degrees, the TITAN XD’s factory bed was removed from the truck and put on a B&S Custom trailer to prevent that heat from affecting the truck. The Smokin’ TITAN bed-trailer features two Nissan TITAN Boxes as lockable dry storage for the smoker pellets and wood chips flanking the smoker. Utilizing the TITAN’s innovative Utili-Track System, a B&S Customizing sliding tray was designed to easily slide the smoker in and out of the bed, supporting the custom Lang BBQ Smoker and Char Grill. When the smoker is not in use, the whole trailer is secured with a steel Diamondback SE Tonneau cover, allowing the user to smoke meat at a tailgate and pack it up for the trip home.

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.
