Which Nissan Cars are AWD?

Nissan Rogue SL AWD

Compared to a front or rear-wheel drive vehicle, all-wheel drives provide a number of important advantages to help keep drivers safer on the road. By splitting the power between the front and rear axles, an AWD drivetrain offers improved acceleration, traction and handling in bad weather. An all-wheel drive vehicle also provides improved off-road capabilities that are sure to appeal to outdoor enthusiasts or anyone looking to head off the beaten path. In this way, any of the all-wheel drive vehicles in the 2018 Nissan lineup can deliver an added level of safety and convenience that makes it easy to get to wherever you need to be.

The Nissan Intuitive All-Wheel Drive Difference

Every Nissan AWD vehicle features the manufacturer’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive technology, which functions to help prevent you from skidding, sliding or losing traction. Sensors monitor each of the four tires and can automatically detect a loss of traction. When this happens, the system responds by instantly directing more power to the wheels that need it most. In this way, the Intuitive All-Wheel Drive system can provide you with added confidence when driving on wet, slick, icy or snowy roads.

Neither four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive will help you slow down quicker or stop quicker on slick roads. However, Nissan’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive can help to prevent you from sliding or losing traction when slowing down as long as you brake steadily instead of slamming your foot down on the pedal.

Crossovers and SUVs are some of the most popular platforms for all-wheel drive, and Nissan offers several fantastic options for anyone in the market for either one. Those who prefer the fuel efficiency, handling and convenience offered by a crossover should definitely check out the 2018 Nissan Rogue, Rogue Sport or Murano—all of which are available with optional AWD.

Nissan also has those in the market for a full-size SUV covered as the eight-seater 2018 Nissan Armada is one of the only full-size SUVs currently on the road to come with available all-wheel drive. Although the Armada is also available in a 4x2 configuration, drivers looking to stay prepared for the harsh Illinois winters will definitely enjoy the added benefits of the AWD model.

Finally, Nissan also offers an all-wheel drive option for those who prefer their cars sporty and high-performance. With its super-car handling, power and performance, the stylish 2018 Nissan GT-R takes advantage of an AWD drivetrain to provide incredible traction and control.

Any of the all-wheel drive vehicles in the 2018 Nissan lineup is undoubtedly an excellent choice. Nonetheless, the only way to fully appreciate the difference that Nissan’s Intuitive All-Wheel Drive technology can make is to get behind the wheel and try it out for yourself. Therefore, we invite you to stop by Peoria Nissan to take any of our 2018 Nissans for a test drive.

Prior to 2018, the Nissan lineup also included one other all-wheel drive vehicle: the Nissan Juke. However, Nissan discontinued this model after the 2017 edition and is replacing it with the new Nissan Kicks compact crossover. Unfortunately, the Kicks will only be available in either front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive configurations. Luckily, anyone interested in purchasing an AWD 2017 Nissan Juke should still be able to get their hands on a new one.

All of the 2018 Nissan all-wheel drive vehicles are great options. However, the only way to know which one is right for you is to get behind the wheel. This is why we want to invite you to visit Midway Nissan, where you can check out all of our new 2018 Nissans and take any of them for a test drive.
