As opposed to most other automakers that roll out their model updates piece-by-piece, Nissan always releases its model-year updates in one big chunk. Details on all 2015 Nissan models are now available, and we’ve got the full list below, including links to some 2015 models which we already knew about.
UPDATE: A Nissan spokesperson confirmed to us that the Cube and Murano CrossCabriolet models will not continue for 2015. Remaining 2014 inventories of these two vehicles are still on sale, but we don’t expect a replacement for either car anytime soon.
2015 Nissan Altima
The popular Altima midsize sedan has some equipment reshuffling among trim levels and packages, and the V-6 model gains 1 mpg in highway and combined fuel economy for a rating of 22/32/26 mpg city/highway combined. See full details and pricing here: 2015 Nissan Altima Starts at $23,110
2015 Nissan Leaf
The 2015 Leaf electric car is already on sale, and the only major update is that all Leaf models (S, SV, and SL) come standard with three driving modes: Normal, Eco, and B, which increases the level of regenerative braking. The SL grade also has new 17-inch alloy wheels standard, and there is a new exterior color called MorningSky Blue. SV and SL models now have a hands-free texting feature and increased voice command capability.
2015 Nissan Maxima
The 2014 Maxima carries over into 2015 without any changes, as we’re expecting to see a redesigned 2016 Nissan Maxima to debut sometime during the 2014-2015 auto show season with styling inspired by the Sport Sedan concept at this year’s Detroit auto show.
2015 Nissan Sentra
The Sentra compact was redesigned in 2013, revised again in 2014, and is updated for 2015 once again. Other than four new exterior colors, all updates concern equipment levels for different trim levels, so we’ll go through each trim individually.
Sentra S: All models gain a standard USB port, automatic headlights, cruise control, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, and can now be equipped with the FE+ fuel economy package that brings highway fuel economy up to 40 mpg.
Sentra SV: The SV Driver Package goes away, because all of its optional features—including smart entry and pushbutton start, a 4.3-inch audio display screen, satellite radio, and a front armrest—are now standard on the SV. There is also a new Appearance Package that adds a sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a rear spoiler.
Sentra SR: All of the equipment from the SR Driver Package is now standard on this model, including rear disc brakes, keyless entry and pushbutton start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, satellite radio, and an audio display screen.
Sentra SL: The SL’s Leather Package is gone because that package’s additions of heated leather front seats and disc brakes are now standard on all SL models.
2015 Nissan Versa and Versa Note
The Versa sedan gets a mid-cycle refresh this year that includes revised styling inside and out. The Versa Note hatchback is essentially carryover, but does receive a new SR trim along with minor equipment changes. Read about these two models below:
2015 Nissan GT-R
The big addition this year is the new GT-R Nismo model, which set an impressive Nürburgring lap time of 7 minutes, 8 seconds earlier this year.
2015 Nissan 370Z
Along with the refreshed 2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo, there are two new trim levels for the standard 370Z called Sport and Sport Tech, meaning that the previous Sport and Navigation packages are now integrated into these trim levels. There are also new 18-inch wheels, a new base audio head unit for standard 370Z and 370Z Sport models, and Bluetooth is now standard on all models.
2015 Nissan Armada
This full-size SUV soldiers on for yet another year with some minor improvements including revised interior door panels, new 20-inch alloy wheels for SL and Platinum trims, and two new exterior colors including Arctic Metallic Blue and Magnetic Black.
2015 Nissan Juke
A refreshed model debuted for Europe at the 2014 Geneva auto show, and this updated Juke with revised styling inside and out will go on sale in the U.S. later on this year.
2015 Nissan Murano
The Murano crossover is completely redesigned this year and debuted at the 2014 New York auto show. For full information on the new Murano which goes on sale in late 2014, see the link below:
2015 Nissan Pathfinder
Tweaks for this three-row crossover include a revised CVT, five new exterior colors, a standard hill-descent control system for four-wheel-drive models, and some equipment reshuffling. For instance, the SV model now has foglights, heated side mirrors, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror; the SL adds a 120-volt power outlet; and the Platinum trim now has a panoramic glass roof as standard. SL and Platinum models now have blind-spot warning and cross traffic detection as standard, the SL Tech and Premium Packages gain the AroundView Monitor.
2015 Nissan Quest
Fuel economy goes up for 2015 thanks to a revised CVT, as the Quest gains 1 mpg highway and combined for a new rating of 19/26/22 mpg city/highway/combined. A 5.0-inch audio display screen replaces the smaller 4.3-inch screen, and the LE trim becomes the Platinum trim and also gains moving object detection.
2015 Nissan Rogue
The Rogue crossover was just redesigned last year and thus receives minor updates. There is a new Eco mode, a new exterior color called Arctic Blue Metallic, and the SV Premium Package gains heated seats. The Nissan Rogue Select, aka the old Rogue bodystyle, continues on for 2015, remarkably.
2015 Nissan Xterra
This off-road-ready SUV has some new features, including a 5.0-inch color audio display for the base S model that adds Bluetooth capability along with satellite radio and other Nissan Connect smartphone integration features. There is also a new Beacon Yellow exterior color.
2015 Nissan Frontier
This will likely be the last year for the current Frontier bodystyle, and Nissan is adding a few new features to this midsize truck for 2015. SV and Desert Runner trims now have a 5.0-inch audio display screen with NissanConnect smartphone capabilities as standard, and the Pro-4X model now comes standard with navigation. The crew-cab Frontier SL also has a sunroof as standard for 2015, and a new Arctic Blue Metallic color replaces Graphite Blue.
2015 Nissan Titan
An all-new Nissan Titan is just around the corner, and the outgoing Titan lineup is slightly simplified for 2015. Long-wheelbase models are gone, interior door panels are slightly revised, and there is some content reshuffling among the SV Value Truck Package, the SV Utility Package, the SV Premium Package, the Pro-4X Premium Utility Package, and the Pro-4X Luxury Package. The driver’s seat also now has an adjustable lumbar support, and there are two new exterior colors.
2015 Nissan NV
Cargo versions of this full-size van are now available in SL trim, which adds chrome exterior trim, a power driver’s seat, a security system, and side curtain airbags for the first (and only) row of seats. Both the cargo version and the passenger version have an updated touchscreen display with some new smartphone support capabilities thanks to the new NissanConnect system.
2015 Nissan NV200
This compact van is available in cargo and taxi forms, and the cargo model has a revised transmission that makes for higher mpg ratings of 24/26/25 mpg city/highway/combined as well as some new features for 2015. Rear sonar is now an option, as is glass for the sliding side doors, and the optional NissanConnect display screen is updated for 2015 as it is in other Nissan models.
