With the debut of two more completely new models in 2023, Nissan follows up a busy 2022 that saw the introduction of the revised Frontier midsize truck and 3-row Pathfinder midsize crossover SUV.
The 5-passenger Nissan Ariya is an all-electric small crossover designed for people who want to save money on gas while commuting with friends and family. Meanwhile, the brand-new Nissan Z 2-seat sports car is aimed at a consumer base that values performance more.
The Rogue Sport will be phased out by Nissan in 2023, creating a significant gap between the entry-level Kicks and the little Rogue in the Japanese automaker's broad SUV lineup. There are a few changes to the rest of Nissan's portfolio for 2023.

2023 Nissan Altima
For 2023, the well-liked Altima midsize car receives a makeover that includes a new brand logo, redesigned V-motion grille, and refreshed front fascia.
In addition to the two new exterior paint choices Gray Sky Pearl and Garnett Pearl Metallic, buyers now have a choice between four new alloy wheel designs.
A new 12.3-inch infotainment display is installed inside the SL and SR VC-Turbo trims, and the sporty SR trim gets a few new interior design features.
2023 Nissan Ariya
The Nissan Ariya crossover SUV eventually makes its appearance for the 2023 model year after some initial delays, becoming the second all-electric vehicle in the Japanese automaker's U.S. portfolio.
The new Ariya has an EPA-estimated driving range of up to 304 miles with a choice of standard- or extended-range batteries.
Later in the model year, Nissan's avant-garde e-Force all-wheel-drive (AWD) system will be offered on the electric vehicle (EV), which is currently only available with front-wheel drive (FWD).
2023 Nissan Armada
Only a few minor equipment changes will be made to the full-size Nissan Armada SUV for 2023. Nissan is still selling it in 2-wheel drive (2WD) and 4-wheel drive (4WD) in the S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels (4WD).
Standard remote engine start, LED fog lights, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a universal garage door opener are all added to the SV trim. A heated steering wheel is a standard feature on the SL level.
Aside from the lowest S trim, all models now come with Amazon Alexa built-in as standard.
2023 Nissan Frontier
The midsize Frontier truck enters 2023 with some new equipment and packaging following a long overdue facelift in 2022.
Among the updates are the addition of the Midnight Edition package to the SV Crew Cab, the addition of the SV Convenience package to the long-wheelbase SV Crew Cab, the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay to the Pro-X and Pro-4X, and the substitution of red interior stitching for black in the Pro Premium package..
2023 Nissan GT-R
Nissan's GT-R supercar remains unchanged through 2023. All variants of the GT-R are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V6 engine, which is available in Premium and NISMO specifications and produces 565–600 horsepower (Premium) (NISMO).
Additionally, the suspension and brakes of the GT-R NISMO have been updated. The 2023 GT-R Premium is priced from $113,540 upwards.
While the GT-R NISMO is nearly twice as expensive. $210,740 is the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP). $1,895 in destination fees is not included in the listed prices.
2023 Nissan Kicks
The little Kicks continues unchanged till 2023, just like the GT-R. Fuel efficiency, ease of use, and affordability are its selling points, in contrast to the GT-R.
One of the most affordable SUVs on the market, the 5-passenger crossover has a starting MSRP of only $21,585, including the $1,295 destination cost. But keep in mind that this "SUV" doesn't have AWD.
2023 Nissan Leaf
Nissan secretly modifies its "other," more established EV, the Leaf, as it introduces the brand-new Ariya. Nissan simplifies the Leaf's trim range for 2023 and now offers the EV in S and SV Plus grades.
With redesigned front and rear ends, inside and external Nissan brand emblems, and new 17-inch alloy wheel designs on the SV Plus, the automaker updates the Leaf's look. The S trim also receives a new cloth seat covering.
2023 Nissan Maxima
The Maxima, Nissan's largest and sportiest sedan, will remain in production through 2023 with only a few minor modifications.
The new Nissan brand mark is carried over to all trim levels, and the Platinum trim level adds semi-aniline leather seats and LED kick plates. Nissan's "4-Door Sports Car" is identical in all other respects.
2023 Nissan Murano
Similar to the Maxima, the sporty Murano crossover SUV has undergone very minimal alterations. Inside and out, the Murano receives the new Nissan brand emblem, and two new exterior colors, Super Black and Deep Ocean Blue Pearl, make their premiere.
2023 Nissan Pathfinder
For the 2022 model year, the Pathfinder 3-row midsize crossover SUV was completely new. Nissan unveils a brand-new Rock Creek trim level for 2023 that is aimed at off-road aficionados.
Among the mechanical changes are a heavy-duty tow hitch receiver and harness, an off-road suspension, 18-inch beadlock style wheels with all-terrain tires, a tubular roof rack, and standard 4WD.
Additionally, the Rock Creek receives captain's seats for the second row, LED fog lights, a surround-view camera with an off-road mode, and orange inside stitching. The Pathfinder does not anticipate any other changes for 2023.
2023 Nissan Rogue
Almost no changes are made to Nissan's most popular model for 2023, two years after a thorough redesign.
The Rogue is offered in FWD or AWD and is available in four trim levels: S, SV, SL, and Platinum.
The Midnight Edition package, which includes blacked-out exterior and interior features, is now available for the Rogue SV. Amazon Alexa is now included in both the Platinum and SL Premium packages.
2023 Nissan Sentra
In 2023, the Sentra will be back. However, when we were putting this article together for publication, there was no information available regarding the modifications to Nissan's little 4-door sedan.
The Sentra is slated for a mid-cycle to revamp soon, most likely for the 2023 or 2024 model year, as it enters its fourth model year following a 2020 facelift.
2023 Nissan Titan/Titan XD
The Nissan Titan is probably not going to survive much longer due to the fierce competition in the full-size truck industry.
However, the carmaker continues to update its huge pickup. The Titan is offered in 2023 with the Midnight Edition package, which includes LED headlights as well as black exterior and interior trim. Additionally, wireless Apple CarPlay is added to the Pro-4X and Platinum Reserve grades.
2023 Nissan Versa
The exterior appearance of the subcompact Nissan Versa vehicle is updated for 2023. A redesigned front fascia and an upgraded V-motion grille are among the improvements.
Gray Sky Pearl paint is now available on the SV and SR versions of the sporty Versa, which also receives new 17-inch alloy wheels.
An 8-inch touchscreen, a wireless charging pad, and a Wi-Fi hotspot are some of the latest technological innovations that are currently accessible. Additionally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now included in the new S Plus option, which is only offered on the base S model.
2023 Nissan Z
The all-new Z, Nissan's storied 2-door, 2-seat, rear-wheel-drive sports vehicle, serves as the lineup's bookend. A 400-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine powers the 2023 Nissan Z's two trim levels, Sport and Performance. Both a 6-speed manual and a 9-speed automatic transmission are available to buyers.
The redesigned Z's exterior still features the iconic long hood/short deck design, but with a more contemporary twist. The driver-focused cockpit is equally recognizable inside but has a modernized appearance and feel.
Drivers look at a 12.3-inch information display, and the center stack has an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen (a 9-inch touchscreen is available).

What should you know before purchasing a car?
CarWeek is here to give a few useful hints.
- Get Financing Pre-Approved. Applying for a loan preapproval is the best thing you can do to speed up the car-buying process. There are numerous options for doing this, whether you choose to apply in person at a regional or national bank, go through an internet lender, or go to a local bank or credit union.
- Having a better understanding of the cars you can afford is the main advantage of pre-approval. Your monthly payment will depend on the types of interest rates for which you are eligible. Additionally, you will have the chance to resolve any credit concerns you may have before entering the dealership.
- The dealerships will frequently offer you a higher rate than what you may actually qualify for, which is another advantage of pre-approval. In this case, even though you might be qualified for a rate of 5%, the dealership offers you a rate of 9%. Since the dealership and their finance provider split the additional interest, salespeople are compensated accordingly.
- In that case, you wouldn't be aware that you're paying a greater rate than necessary because you hadn't received pre-approval. You would have the choice to reject the dealership's financing offer and continue with your original lender if your lender had preapproved your loan.
- The dealership might even be open to negotiating and offering you a rate that is lower than the one your lender preapproved in some circumstances.
