Nissan News: Rumorpile: Nissan To Debut U.S. Spec Qashqai At Detroit

Recommended Posts

Another crossover could be joining Nissan's U.S. lineup. The Truth About Cars has learned from sources that Nissan will be debuting the Qashqai at the Detroit Auto Show next month. The Qashqai has been sold in Europe since 2007 and has become the brand's best-selling model.

The Qashqai will sit below the Rogue in Nissan's lineup. In terms of measurements, the Qashqai is 10 inches shorter in overall length and rides on a wheelbase that is 2.3 inches shorter than the Rogue. No mention of a powertrain, but we assume that Nissan's xTronic CVT and the choice of front-wheel and all-wheel drive will be available.

The model could be released in late 2017 as a 2018 model.

OUCH, talk about Get Shorty only type of CUV. The Roque is a tight fit now for average size peeps.

They could have been in front of this craze with this car, but it took them a while and now they are playing catch up.

Juke - Qashqai - Rogue - Murano - Pathfinder - Armada

That's a pretty complete lineup....

So it's Juke's less... flamboyant brother.  I was looking at Rogues and thinking they're noticeably bigger than they used to be, so the Cashcow should find a definite niche.

There's obviously a spot in the lineup. But jeez, I'm over the CUV craze.

Pretty much like I am so over the Coupe Car craze. RIght now all cars are dogs and the whole Coupe style is so over done, they can crush them all and I would not weep a tear.

On the SUV/CUV side, would love a new updated Trailblazer SS AWD and an EV AWD CUV to go with the BOLT / VOLT.

Got to be a reason this is such a big seller in Europe and top rated by most testers. Should be a big hit here with singles , young families, and seniors. Will be one of the best looking in class. Hope Nissan will finally have a turbo available in this and the Rouge.

      The idea of Porsche doing a 911 hybrid has come and gone, and it seems to be coming once again.
      Bloomberg has learned from sources at Porsche that they are considering a hybrid powertrain for their iconic sports car once again. If given the green light, it would appear a few years after the launch of the next-generation 911 (due sometime next year) and possibly offer up to 40 miles of electric-only range. A problem that engineers are working on is trying to cut down battery weight the handling characteristics the vehicle is known for.
      It should be noted the Porsche has been going back and forth on this idea since 2014. Back in May, Porsche's head of development for the 718 and 911 said plans for 911 plug-in hybrid were canceled last year due to weight concerns and not being able to make much a profit as they would with a standard 911.

      Rumors have been flying for the past year or about Lexus introducing a three-row variant of their RX crossover and it appears to be materializing. 
      Today, Lexus released a teaser photo of the RX L that will be debuting a couple weeks at the LA Auto Show. We can't make out any details as the picture just shows the nameplate. It will be offered with the 3.5L V6 (RX 350L) and hybrid powertrain (RX 450hL).
      It is expected that the RX L will have the same wheelbase length as the standard RX, but have a longer rear overhang to make room for the third-row.
