By now you’ve probably seen the news that the Nissan Xtreme has a new engine that is able to handle the maximum torque output of the engine, a capability that was previously impossible.
But the Xtra’s new engine is also equipped with a new set of safety systems, which Nissan says are meant to make it “less vulnerable to crashes.”
For example, the new system is designed to prevent the engine from shutting down at high speeds if the transmission is not in gear, which could happen when the car is traveling at a high speed.
The new system also is designed for an engine to overheat at the bottom of its RPM range, which can result in engine failure if it does not cool off in time.
Nissan also said that while it has not found a way to reduce the number of engine failures that occur in the Xtra, the company believes that its safety system will make it easier for drivers to drive the vehicle in an emergency.
