Nissan President Review: An Overview Across Three Generations
The car carries an authentic design that can be seen in vehicles that are exclusively produced only for the Japanese market. The craftsmanship, quality, and innovative features excel any vehicle exported to the United States or other countries.
Here’s a rundown of the Nissan President cars across three generations.
1. First Generation
Produced between 1965 to 1973, the 1st-gen H150 model replaced Nissan Cedric. It was a top-of-the-line car that looked quite similar to Nissan Bluebird—a smaller but highly popular car launched a year earlier.
The car was available with two engine types—a 3.0L H30 straight-6 and a 4.0L Y40 V8 engine. The latter type was specially made for the limousine. Also, the automaker introduced an electronic anti-lock system in the car in 1971, which made it the first Japanese car to have the electronic ABS.
The President was decked with luxurious, expensive features, making it the official car for many high-level government officials including the then prime minister Eisaku Sato. The Prince Motor Company, an automobile manufacturer that merged with Nissan in 1966, manufactured four Nissan Prince Royals and the Emperor of Japan used one of them for transportation.
2. Second Generation
Nissan brought the second generation of President in 1973 under the H250 series. It had the same chassis of the first-gen model but received a complete upgrade. The company introduced the Sovereign trim in 1977 and Sovereign VIP in 1985. Another redesigned model in 1982 featuring a larger gas tank and improved suspension. It also had square halogen headlines instead of the round lights of the previous version. However, most interior and exterior features were the same.
The model came with 3.0L and 4.4L V8 engine units. The 3.0L version was available in the previous generation models too but the 4.4L Y44E was specially designed for the second-gen version. Nissan manufactured this model until 1990.
3. President HG50
This particular model acts as a link between the second generation and third generation Nissan President cars. Nissan launched it in 1989 but it went to sale a year later. The automaker marketed several versions of it with minor changes until 2002.
The car features a 4.5L V8 engine and a 4-speed automatic transmission. A shorter wheelbase version (113.4 inches) named President JS joined the series in 1993. A Royal Limousine model manufactured by Autech—Nissan Motor’s special vehicle subsidiary—also joined the lineup at the same year.
4. Third Generation
The new model was launched in 2001 with improved and lavish features. The Nissan President interior of the four-passenger limousine features expensive equipment including a relaxed seat with a rotating option, Bose sound system, and many other electronic devices.
The 3rd-gen model was discontinued in August 2010 because its safety features did not comply with the safety regulations introduced at that time. Nissan found it financially not viable to relaunch the car with upgraded safety features.
Nissan President Price
If you are looking for a Nissan president for sale, a used model could be cost saving without compromising with the overall condition. You can get one at less than $5,000 but spending a bit more will allow you to settle up for something with even better conditions.
Plenty of secondhand car dealers, both online and offline, have this particular model on the stock. If you purchase a used car, never forget to check its documents and have to be checked thoroughly by a mechanic.
Shall I Purchase a Nissan President?
It depends on your purpose. If you want an affordable used car for the daily commute, Nissan President is not suitable for that purpose. It is an expensive car that demands high-maintenance and any repair work is likely to be costly. But, it is definitely worthwhile to keep one in your collection. The limousine won’t give you the best mileage or it cannot even accommodate a big family like a passenger car. An SUV or sedan from Toyota or other companies would be a practical choice in that case. But, you should purchase one for your garage if you are an admirer of classic cars. The car will definitely catch the attention of the onlookers if you ever take it out for a ride.
