Nissan to Expand ProPILOT Technology

By Emily Eppley | May 21st, 2018

 

Nissan has heard the positive feedback from drivers about the innovative ProPILOT Assist driving system and is expanding it to more vehicles. There are currently 120,000 vehicles featuring the technology sold globally and by adding it to the best-selling Nissan Rogue Sport there will be countless more safe vehicles on the road. ProPILOT Assist is the foundation for the autonomous vehicles of the future, helping drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and a set distance to the vehicle ahead. See our current inventory now to test drive a vehicle with the ProPILOT Assist and experience what all the buzz is about.

The Rogue, including the Rogue Sport, is Nissan’s top-selling nameplate in the U.S. market. ProPILOT Assist is a hands-on driver-assist system that helps drivers stay centered in their lane, navigate stop-and-go traffic and maintain a set vehicle speed and distance to the vehicle ahead. It’s all done with a simple, intuitive two-button operation. To activate the system, you simply push the ProPILOT Assist button on the steering wheel and then set the Intelligent Cruise Control when the desired speed is reached.

Nissan’s exclusive ProPILOT Assist technology was originally introduced in 2016 in the Japanese-market Nissan Serena minivan. Since then, the technology has spread globally to vehicles such as the 100% electric new Nissan LEAF, the European-market Qashqai, the Japanese-market X-Trail and the U.S.-market Rogue. ProPILOT Assist will also be featured on the upcoming all-new 2019 Nissan Altima sedan. Additional vehicles will adopt the technology in coming years, expanding to 20 models and 20 markets by the end of FY2022, as part of the company’s mid-term plan, Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022.

“ProPILOT Assist is an iconic technology for Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s vision of how vehicles are powered, driven and integrated into society,” said Philippe Klein, Nissan’s chief planning officer. “Its acceptance by consumers has been beyond expectations, and we’re pleased to expand its availability to more popular models such as Altima, X-Trail and Rogue Sport.”

ProPILOT Assist is designed to be more intuitive and user-friendly compared with other driver-assist technologies. It can potentially help lessen driver fatigue and create a more confident driving experience – especially for drivers who experience heavy highway traffic on a daily basis.
