How the Nissan XTRONIC CVT® Makes Driving Easier & Fuel-Efficient

Nissan XTRONIC CVT | Dixon, IL

The XTRONIC Continuously Variable Transmission® from Nissan is in its third generation, and you can find it at the cars and SUVs for sale at Ken Nelson Chevrolet. This intuitive, flexible type of transmission comes equipped with D-Step Logic Control for a smooth, efficient driving experience here in Dixon, Illinois.

A smooth, constant acceleration is possible with the innovative D-Step Logic Control software. By gauging data such as your Nissan vehicle’s speed and the position of your accelerator pedal, the software can figure out what the ideal gear ratio is.

Back in 2017, the Nissan Pathfinder debuted this version of the XTRONIC Continuously Variable Transmission®, and now the innovative CVT is available on Nissan models like the Altima, Murano, Versa, Sentra, and Maxima.

Why may you want your SUV or sedan to have a continuously variable transmission?  Shifting is seamless on a CVT, even at low speeds, so there’s no shift lag or fuel drain when you’re moving in stop-and-go traffic (especially around the Chicago metro area).

When you’re driving a Nissan model equipped with XTRONIC CVT®, you’ll benefit not only from a smooth, controlled, and responsive performance. You’ll also earn increased fuel economy, meaning less time and money spent at the pump, as well as a quiet driving experience when you’re cruising down the highway.
