If you’re a pickup fan, this upcoming Detroit Auto Show will be the best yet. After months of teasing the next-gen Titan, Nissan will finally reveal its additions to the full-size pickup. Including the Cummins 5.0-liter diesel V8 shown in the teaser. Apparently capable of over 300 horsepower and around 550 pound-feet of torque, the Cummins could push Nissan into the full-size truck segment. Toyota, content with its slight changes to the Tundra, will have to compete with a very aggressive and ambitious Nissan. Fred Diaz, CEO of Chrysler’s Ram pickup division, claims, “There is no question that the new Titan will turn heads, and with the available Cummins 5.0-liter V8 turbo-diesel, we expect to win new fans and attract buyers looking for this unique configuration.”
The new engine will be built at Cummins’ Columbus Engine Plant, leaving the Titan itself to remain to be assembled at the same Canton, Mississippi factory. Other than the slight teasers and sparse engine information, there is not much else that Nissan is willing to reveal. We will just have to wait until the Detroit Auto Show in January—but then, we are used to waiting, and this wait appears to be worth it judging by the information we have now.
Need a Titan now and can’t wait for next generation to finally hit stores? In terms of overall quality and pricing, the 2014 Titan is a great pickup for those who need a reliable and efficient truck. At Quirk Nissan we have savings that will leave you satisfied after your purchase.

Now, we all know that December—the end of the year—is one of the best times to purchase or finance a vehicle. Dealers are pushing their inventory out for less, in order to meet their yearly objectives before January hits. However, 2014 will prove especially ideal for business owners looking for new or used equipment. The Senate recently passed the Tax Extenders Bill, hoping to inspire small businesses to buy necessary equipment and software and to invest in themselves.
Note, this measure only covers the 2014 tax year, so the best business decision is to apply immediately in order to make the cutoff at midnight on December 31. And, yes, you can lease vehicles—in fact it is a preferable financial strategy considering it can significantly help with not only cash flow, but with profits as well. Is it worth the trouble? Check it out for yourself and calculate your potential savings in seconds.
First, make sure that the vehicle you aim to purchase is applicable. The bill only covers business vehicles with a gross vehicle weight in excess of 6,000 lbs. Read up on the eligibility guidelines, so you don’t waste your time on something that, evidently, doesn’t apply to you.
Add this tax break onto the best vehicle deals of the year, and you are looking at great equipment for much less than you might normally pay. Here is the perfect opportunity to save money as a small business owner. At Quirk Nissan, we have huge savings on commercial trucks. Take advantage of this opportunity and save extra cash for your business.

In the midst of the ever-changing, always competitive, and increasingly intense, auto-industry, one often forgets the reason they are there in the first place. It might be money, it could be fate, but one collective, compelling motive is most certainly a simple passion for cars. Speed, style, power—cars are supposed to be fun. Ferrari learned that the hard way.
While Ferrari is all work, no play — Nissan embraced this concept and in doing so, earned a nice bit of publicity. Deadmau5, a Canadian electronic artist, covered a 458 Italia in a Nyan Cat wrap — even making custom emblems and flipping the brand name into the clever, “Purrari.” But Ferrari wouldn’t allow it.
Now Nissan has taken a humorous jab at the situation by whipping up this Nyan Cat GT-R in Photoshop.
