    Nissan ProPilot 2.0 Rolling Out in Japan, US Has To Wait

      ...awaiting more testing in the US...

    Nissan is releasing the next version of ProPilot in Japan in the fall of 2019 on the new Nissan Skyline (Infiniti G50 to us Yanks), but here in the U.S., we'll need to wait a bit longer while the system undergoes further testing and mapping of the US highway system.

    ProPilot 2.0 makes a big jump in autonomous driving capability, the biggest of which is true hands-off highway driving. The system can switch lanes and pass cars, but those moves require a hands on approach from the driver. ProPilot 2.0 also takes orders from the Navigation system, while using seven cameras, five radar sensors, and 12 sonar sensors to pilot the car.  The system will only work on highways where the roads have been mapped in 3D High-Definition.  Japan's more compact nature means that most of the roads there have already been scanned.  The US, with its wide open space will take longer to map. 

    Currently ProPilot Assist (1.0) is offered only on the Leaf, Rogue, Rogue Sport, and Altima. In the US, 60 percent of Leaf buyers and 40 percent of Rogue buyers opt for the 1.0 version of the system.   Eventually Nissan wants to expand ProPilot to 20 models.

    @Drew Dowdell how does this compare to Cadillacs Super Cruise?

    I haven't driven 2.0 yet, as it's only in Japan, and not till fall.  It sounds like it is ever so slightly more advanced since it can get instructions from the NAV system.  Cadillac's doesn't do that currently and it will just keep you on the same highway until you run out of highway to be on.

      Nissan is forcing employees to go without pay for two days at the beginning of January 2020 by remaining closed on the 2nd and 3rd of January. The move equates to a 9.2% pay cut for those paid monthly.  In addition to the pay cuts, Nissan is cutting travel expenses by half effective immediately. All of Nissan's US operations, including Infiniti an Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp, the company's in house financing unit are included in the shut down. 
      Nissan has been plagued with falling sales in the U.S. with the entire group falling 16 percent in November. Nissan brand fell 13 percent and Infiniti fell 33 percent (You can view the industry sales figure ticker for November here). Nissan has been moving away from high volume fleet sales and cutting back on retail incentives in a drive to be more profitable.

      Los Angeles - Nissan has unveiled the 2020 Nissan Sentra at the LA Auto Show Today. The new Sentra takes on the look of the larger Altima and Maxima to bring some harmony to the Nissan sedan lineup. The Sentra is Nissan's best selling model in the U.S.
      Nissan is adding Nissan Safety Shield 360 as standard equipment for 2020 with additional driver assisted technologies available.  The platform is all new, now with an independent rear suspension and electric rack steering. A new 2.0-liter 4-cylinder replaces the previous 1.8-liter unit.  The new motor produces 149 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft of torque, an increase of 20 percent and 16 percent respectively. Fuel economy is also projected to improve. All 2020 Sentra models come equipped with the latest generation Xtronic transmission.
      The center of gravity has been lowered by lowering the overall height 2.2 inches and increasing the track by 2.0 inches. 
      Trim levels have been simplified to S, SV, and SR with just two option packages. The interior has been upgraded and refined to be more premium feeling. Android Auto and Apply CarPlay are standard with NissanConnect. 

      The 2020 Sentra goes on sale in January 2020.

    • Working out of the house with a 4x4 in the garage I usually don't even bother to shovel the driveway....but if it's not too bad out I'll shovel a path up the driveway to the front door so the USPS and Amazon can deliver... 
    • Amazing that a tiny town like that would be the hub of a worldwide photo sharing entity.  Still waters run deep!
    • Yeah, that was so sad.. 😞  Not a big basketball fan, but always thought Kobe was a first class guy. Even worse that his daughter was in it as well.
    • Was in Flicksville PA today, I'll be generous and call it 'painfully rural'. Not that I don't like that, but where to even get a pizza. I didn't take this pic in/of Flicksville (tho I did drive down this road); I stole it from....   Flickr.
