    This is just stupid. That's not a concept. Any moron could build that. :uh:

    CHICAGO (Feb. 8, 2006) – Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) today unveiled the Titan Onyx, a concept version of Nissan’s popular full-size Titan pickup. Designed to add a new level of visual appeal for customers who seek higher levels of customization, the Titan Onyx is highlighted by 20-inch chrome wheels, chrome running boards and a unique grille and deep front valance.

    Inside, the Titan Onyx features black interior trim, “satin” gauge bezels, embroidered floor mats, aluminum brake and accelerator pedals and special accents on the steering wheel and head restraints.

    “With its powerful engine, rugged frame and innovative utility systems, the Nissan Titan provides a great foundation for developing special concept editions such as the Titan Onyx,” said Brad Bradshaw, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. “We know that there are buyers looking for more attitude, presence and upscale appearance – trucks that, like this Onyx Concept, offer distinction from other vehicles on the road.”

    I really don't think they could have placed that shifter in a worse place.

    Just three years after its introduction in mid-2003, the Nissan Quest minivan has undergone a major transformation for the 2007 model year – complete with a redesigned interior, refined exterior appearance, new high quality materials and attention to detail, and an array of new available features including Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System and an in-dash CD6 with MP3 playback and auxiliary audio input.

    Unchanged is Quest’s position as the most distinctive and original minivan on the market today. Quest also remains one of the roomiest front-wheel drive minivans in its segment, with the widest opening doors for easy access to the standard Fold-Away 2nd and 3rd row seats. For 2007, the 3rd row seat now offers integrated auto-folding headrests and spring assist for easier operation.

    “When Quest was introduced, it redefined the segment with its emphasis on combining car-like performance, innovative style, sporty appearance and exceptional practicality and versatility,” said Brad Bradshaw, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. “The enhancements for 2007, which represent one of the largest mid-cycle investments in Nissan history, make the Quest more flexible and accommodating than ever – keeping pace with the evolving needs and desires of minivan users.”

    Try telling that to a WRC driver.

    Closer to the steering wheel = better.

    So minivans are exempt from good ergonomics?

    The ergonomics you speak of apply to a manual transmission, race car. Don't you think the needs might be just a little bit different for a mini van?

    On an aside, there really isn't a good place for a transmissions shifter in a minivan, the walkthrough feature means it can't go anywhere else, especially since we have moved away from column shifters.

    It's easy to see where the inspiration came from.

    At least that one won't be directly in front of the radio and nav controls when it's in gear

    Shift Ergonomics are ergonomics, regardless of the vehicle type. Putting the shifter closer to the steering wheel is good in any vehicle. The closer the driver can keep their hands to the steering wheel, the better. Especially in a large vehicle. Next you'll be saying paddle shifters don't belong in regular cars either.

    And racing technology and ergonomics ALWAYS filters down to regular cars. Hence the reason you sackride Honda so much for their VTEC and good manual transmission. Neither of which would exist without Honda's racing programs.

    And you can keep it close to the steering wheel but not block shit in the process.

    You're not supposed to operate the navigation and radio when the vehicle is in gear anway.

    But whatever. That's Americans for you. :hsugh:
