Nissan named 2017 Ruedas ESPN Awards ‘Manufacturer of the Year.’ Rogue Sport takes ‘Vehicle of the Year’ title
Nissan has been named the winner in four categories in the annual Ruedas ESPN Awards, including the prestigious "Manufacturer of the Year" and "Vehicle of the Year" titles, at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The new 2017 Rogue Sport, the latest addition to Nissan's popular crossover SUV lineup, took home the hardware in both the "Vehicle of the Year" and "Best CUV" categories. The TITAN XD, the flagship of Nissan's hardworking personal and commercial pickup lineup, won for "Best Diesel Pickup Truck." Winners are selected by a jury of industry experts in 14 categories, along with the "Vehicle of the Year."
"Nissan is honored to be recognized for these four awards by Ruedas ESPN, especially with their nod to the exciting new Rogue Sport," said Dan Mohnke, senior vice president, Sales & Marketing and Operations, Nissan Division U.S., Nissan North America, Inc. in accepting the awards from Jaime Florez, director, Ruedas ESPN. "The Hispanic market, and Los Angeles in particular, has been a key driver of Nissan's sales success in recent years – so it is an added pleasure to receive the honors here at the Los Angeles Auto Show."
"The portfolio of Nissan vehicles available in the U.S. market is today better than ever. Not only are their products the right ones in every segment, but also the quality of their vehicles is second to none," said Florez. "For these and many other reasons, Nissan North America is 2017 Ruedas ESPN Manufacturer of the Year."

Nissan TITAN joins top fly-fishing guide Hilary Hutcheson to help revamp Florida Keys in wake of Hurricane Irma
It's been over two months since Hurricane Irma slammed the southeastern U.S., but the devastation left behind remains – and one of the industries hit hardest is fly fishing. That's why Hilary Hutcheson, a top fly-fishing guide based in Montana, teamed with Nissan and other outdoor brands to help with cleanup efforts in support of the Florida Keys Fishing Guides' Association.
"When I saw my friends in the Keys lose 30 guide days in the wake of Hurricane Irma – as well as their boats and homes in some cases – I felt a burning concern that was perhaps fueled by my own experience in the harsh smoke of Montana's devastating wildfires," said Hutcheson, who is also a fly-fishing TV show host. "But I only lost nine days of guiding, not 30. I wanted to help those who took a gale-force slugging in the Keys."
Equipped with a powerful 2017 Nissan TITAN, Hutcheson and a crew of fellow outdoor industry members hauled truck-loads of debris to community trash piles to support the clean-up efforts.
Among those assisted was Bill Becker, a local radio host who chose not to evacuate during the storm so he could deliver up-to-date news to all locals who stayed behind. While broadcasting from his house to keep residents informed, Becker says his yard was destroyed.
After a full day of clean up, Hutcheson wasn't done. She and her crew participated in a local fly-fishing tournament over the weekend to raise money for local guides – and the effects of that event are sure to be felt long after this past weekend as cleanup efforts continue.
"We wanted to make a statement that the Keys are open for business and that one of the best ways to keep the guides on the poling platform is to book a charter with them," said Hutcheson. "I'm grateful to everyone who participated in this effort and to those who are doing so many small and large things to help."

Though winter officially doesn’t start until December 21, the 2018 Nissan TITAN XD full-size pickup will be ready for the worst the season can throw at it with the arrival of a new Snow Plow Prep Package. The package, which includes high-capacity, heavy-duty front springs, will be available this fall for use with a range of commercial and personal snow plows from five leading snow plow manufacturers: Boss, Fisher, Meyer, SnowEx and Western.
The Snow Plow Prep Package replaces the stock front springs with a higher capacity design, which increases front gross axle weight rating (GAWR) capacity by 575 pounds (from 4,325 pounds to 4,900 pounds). This allows fitment of snowplows up to 786 pounds (TITAN XD Gas Crew Cab S grade).
The Snow Plow Prep Package is available on all three TITAN XD Gas body configurations with the V8 gas engine – Single Cab, King Cab and Crew Cab – and on S and SV grade levels. The heavier duty springs were also offered on 2017 TITAN XD models (as the Heavy Duty GAWR Package), making vehicles equipped with that package also snow plow-capable.
