The 2015 Nissan GT-R, Armada, Pathfinder and Titan, as well as the Juke, Rogue, Xterra, Frontier and Murano vehicles all come standard with four-wheel drive or have it as an option. Most of these vehicles are pickup trucks and SUVs, with the exception of the Nissan GT-R sports car.

The highest-performance all-wheel drive vehicle made by Nissan is the Nissan GT-R. Powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 545 horsepower and 463 foot-pounds of torque, the GT-R utilizes Nissan's ATESSA intelligent all-wheel drive system to help efficiently transfer the engine's massive power output to pavement. Using an all-wheel drive system allows the GT-R to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 2.7 seconds. Most other Nissan models aside from the GT-R can be fitted with all-wheel drive as an option rather than as standard equipment.

While Nissan's coupe and sedan offerings do not have all-wheel drive options, the same is not true of Nissan's Infiniti luxury brand. The Infiniti Q40, Q50 and Q70 sedans all have all-wheel drive as options on certain trims, as does the Q60 coupe. However, the convertible edition of the Q60 is not available with all-wheel drive. All of the Infiniti crossover models have all-wheel drive as an option, as does the full-size QX80 SUV.
