A lightly refreshed version of Nissan’s pioneering electric car is set to make its public debut this week at the 2022 New York International Auto Show. For 2023, the Nissan Leaf gets mild styling updates, a pared-down model lineup, and new alloy wheels for its top trim level.
After a brief hiatus, an outdoorsy Rock Creek trim package returns to the Nissan Pathfinder lineup for the 2023 model year, and it’s slated to make its public debut at the 2022 New York International Auto Show this week.
My father has owned a total of one non-American-brand vehicles in his life. That vehicle was a 1999 Subaru Forester, which he purchased used from me. Now in his eighties, my dad has never strayed too far from a core vehicle type—that being a largish sedan featuring inoffensive styling and something more than 4-cylinder power under the hood. In reverse order, his most recent cars include a Chrysler 300, Buick Lucerne, Oldsmobile Aurora, and an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.
At the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, Nissan is unveiling a trio of pickup-truck concepts based on its redesigned-for-2022 Frontier midsize pickup. As concept vehicles go, these are pretty down-to-earth machines—they’re all based on the regular-production 2022 Frontier, with the addition of readily available Nissan Accessories components and aftermarket accessories, as well as a few custom one-off pieces and body graphics.

In June of 2017, my wife and I purchased a 2014 Nissan Juke for our teenage daughter. While this may sound like an extravagant present, it wasn’t really a gift at all. Truth be known, my kid wanted no part of driving, but my wife and I wanted no part of chauffeuring her to 6:00 AM water-polo practice five mornings a week. The car has served us well, and is now with our youngster at a college about 200 miles from our suburban Chicago home.
