Nissan Will Neither Cancel nor Redesign the 370Z Anytime Soon

  Nissan Will Neither Cancel nor Redesign the 370Z Anytime Soon Instead, it will soldier on essentially unchangedIt's been a long time since Nissan introduced the 370Z. We first tested the 350Z's long-awaited successor back in November of 2008, where the 2009 370Z impressed us with its quick acceleration, strong brakes, excellent grip, and updated interior. With a base price of $30,625 USD, we said it "epitomizes a sports-car steal." Nine years later, without any major updates, we were a little less impressed. But despite being long overdue for a redesign, it sounds like Nissan plans to keep selling the current 370Z indefinitely.

Whether they legitimately need the extra ground clearance or simply like the look, truck owners love to lift their trucks. But if you have a relatively new truck and want to preserve the warranty, aftermarket lift kits can be a risky option. A factory lift kit, on the other hand, keeps your warranty intact while also preserving on-road drivability. Not every automaker offers them, but today, Nissan announced plans to sell one for the Titan.

Developed by Icon Vehicle Dynamics (not to be confused with Icon, the high-end car restoration company), the kit only uses bolt-on parts to give the Titan a 3-inch lift. When it goes on sale this spring, Nissan dealers will be able to install the kit on current Titan and Titan XD trucks in about four hours. And since it's OEM-approved, installing it on your truck won't void the warranty.

"We worked with ICON, a proven name in suspension lift-kit engineering, to develop the first kits to be offered through our Nissan dealer network," Billy Hayes, Nissan's head of trucks, said in a release. "They came back to us with a kit that is easy to install, maintains TITAN and TITAN XD's impressive factory payload and towing capabilities, and allows the trucks to be returned to stock for resale or end-of-lease return."

The kit includes adjustable coil-over shocks, custom rod end bearings, and heavy-duty ball joints, and since these parts can all be bolted on, dealers won't have to do any cutting or drilling to install them. Adding the factory lift kit may also improve how the Titan drives. "With the suspension lift kit's increased wheel travel and damping ability, ride quality should be enhanced both off-road and on," said Hayes.

Pricing isn't available at the moment, but expect that to be released soon, since the Titan factory lift kit will go on sale this spring.

2018 Nissan Armada: Big is the Word of the Day .
There are many people who may require a very large SUV, but not necessarily the luxury nameplate often associated with such brethren. The Nissan Armada would be an excellent choice in that regard because it’s nicely appointed and optioned as many other luxury SUVs are, but doesn’t cost “too” much. Normally, these barges can run above $100K, but given the Armada is a Nissan, it’s priced a tad lower than you may think at $64,998 ($67,063 after freight and other fees).
