Nissan 2015 Nissan GT-RThe entry-level 2015 Nissan GT-R Premium will better live up to its name during the new model year, as Nissan is introducing a number of fresh features that put their focus on a more refined ownership experience. Sure, the 2015 Nissan GT-R continues to offer a rambunctious 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 that makes 545 horsepower and 463 lb.-ft. of torque, but now that output is matched by a retuned suspension that delivers a more refined ride (while also enhancing the car’s road-holding capability, of course).

Backed by record November volume, Nissan has finished the first 11 months of this year with more deliveries than for all of 2012.

Although the new 2014 Nissan Rogue hasn’t made it to dealerships quite yet, that hasn’t stopped Nissan’s latest compact crossover from setting a brand-new benchmark. Consider: When the first 2014 Nissan Rogue rolled off the line recently at the brand’s U.S. manufacturing facility in Smyrna, Tennessee, it became the 10 millionth vehicle to be built there. There’s no letup in sight, either, as Nissan aims to build 85 percent of its U.S. lineup in North America by 2015.
