2020 Nissan Rogue: Meet America’s Best SUV for Dogs

Pet parents across America would do just about anything for their dogs—for instance, buying the Nissan X-Trail 4Dogs (Rogue Dogue), an SUV specifically designed for pups. Nissan’s now-defunct concept crossover featured several canine-heavy built-ins: a 360-degree dog shower, hairdryer, slide-down ramp, spill-proof bowls, wipe-clean leather, a second-row dog hammock, and even a special onboard Puppy Cam.

2020 Nissan Altima: A Better, Safer, More Upscale Sedan

The redesigned 2019 Altima was, in fact, “lit.” It received rave reviews across the board – critics from U.S. News to Car and Driver to MotorTrend put it near the top of their lists – and was one of IIHS’s safest sedans of the year. Then the 2020 Nissan Altima swooped in and stole the show with some well-placed upgrades.


But don’t feel bad for the outgoing Altima; if that midsize sedan was Nissan’s giant leap for man, the new 2020 Altima is the automaker’s mankind-springing flagship. Continue Reading →
