2013 Altima amidst the aircraft at the Rocky Mountain Air Show

Nissan NEXT goes West

Torque News' own Don Bain and Aaron Turpen attended the Nissan NEXT traveling infocenter when it arrived at the Rocky Mountain Air Show near Denver, Colorado this weekend. Find out where to be NEXT and get hands-on test driving NIssan's newest cars in a no-pressure, fun and informative environment.

The Nissan NEXT event is a traveling information center showing people the latest lineup of models from Nissan's bevvy of automobiles. The event is crossing the country westward, hitting local events, and stopped at the Rocky Mountain Air Show near Denver, Colorado this weekend.

Both Don Bain and myself were there and we teamed up to get the latest information from Nissan's reps that were on hand as well as to put our hands on the steering wheels of some of the company's most exciting new rides. The flagship of the show and Nissan's new lineup is the all-new 2013 Altima, featuring the first-ever zero-gravity seating system that has to be experienced to be believed. Also on hand were the all-electric Nissan Leaf (in red!), the massive and aptly-named Titan pickup, the Maxima with its amazing full-length sunroof, the agile Frontier pickup, the versatile Pathfinder, and many more.

From Colorado, the Nissan NEXT showcase is moving westward, with show dates in California, Oregon, and Washington. A full schedule and link to the NEXT website are below.

NEXT from our perspective
With both of us Torque News contributors there, it was easy to get plenty of photos and pump multiple Nissan representatives for as much information as we could get. Don, seen in the photo at right grilling the Altima expert on-hand for intel, will be forthcoming with full details on individual cars.

Personally I can't wait to see a 2013 model of the Nissan Maxima. This model has been a comfortable yet sporty performer from the get go and is still a winning combination. Going out on a limb, I'd say this ride (at about $40K) compares well to a Lexus IS.
