Which Nissan Cars are AWD?

With so many different choices out there, it can a nightmare when it comes time to decide which new car to buy. It usually helps to start by focusing on whatever specific criteria is most important to you, such as safety ratings, fuel efficiency and performance, in order to narrow down your choices. At the same time, you’ll also need to think carefully about how you’ll use the vehicle and what you want it to be able to do. In this sense, any of Nissan’s all-wheel drive vehicles can be an outstanding choice if you’re looking for something that gives you the capability to go off-road or desire improved traction and handling in bad weather.

The Safety and Security of Nissan Intuitive All-Wheel Drive

The difference between all-wheel drive and front- or rear-wheel drive is that AWD uses a center differential to provide power to both the front and rear axles instead of sending all the power to only one set of wheels. This is true of Nissans and all other AWD vehicles. However, you’ll gain the added advantage of Intuitive All-Wheel Drive when you choose one of the 2018 Nissan AWD models.

Nissan’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive technology uses sensors that can instantly detect a loss of traction in any of the four tires. When this happens, the system automatically responds by redistributing more of the power to the tire or tires that need it most in order to restore full traction. The fact that the system can respond instantly means that it can make the necessary adjustments to prevent you from skidding or sliding before you yourself are even aware that you’re losing traction. This can come in extremely handy should you suddenly find yourself driving on slick, wet or icy roads by providing improved acceleration and handling.

Intuitive All-Wheel Drive: Available on Your Favorite 2018 Nissan

Many high-performance sports cars now come available with all-wheel drive, but few of them can compare to the style, power and handling offered by the 2018 Nissan GT-R. This sporty supercar is a speed-lover’s dream that boasts a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V6 capable of producing an eye-popping 565 horsepower in addition to Intuitive All-Wheel Drive.

Most people tend to associate all-wheel drive more with crossovers and SUVs, and Nissan has a number of different AWD models that are sure to fit the bill for anyone who desires the convenience, safety and performance an SUV provides. If a small or mid-size crossover with all-wheel drive is your idea of the perfect vehicle, you’ll definitely want to check out the 2018 Nissan Murano or the 2018 Nissan Rogue or Rogue Sport.

On the other hand, the 2018 Nissan Armada might be the ideal choice if you’re in the market for a full-size SUV with plenty of cargo space. As one of the only eight-seater AWD vehicles currently on the road, the Armada can take you and your family wherever you need to go no matter what the road or weather may put in your way.

Unfortunately, Nissan discontinued the Juke following the 2017 model year. Although it is set to be replaced later this year by the all-new 4x2 and 4x4 Nissan Kicks, anyone who is interested in a new 2017 Nissan Juke should still be able to get their hands on one.

As you can see, you have a range of excellent all-wheel drive choices in the 2018 Nissan lineup. Still, the only want to truly know which one is right for you is to see them in person and get behind the wheel. Therefore, why not make a visit to Nissan of McKinney, where our sales associates would be glad to let you take any of our vehicles for a test drive.
