Preparing for the Olympics is a tough route in life. Training from morning till night, eating only healthy foods, and being under the pressure of representing your ENTIRE country, but 6 time Olympic Gold Medalist Ryan Lochte has even taken it a step further. He has developed one of the most innovative versions of the backstroke swim. So needless to say Ryan is no stranger to living his life backwards, and that’s why Nissan has challenged him to try and make it through a coned course in the All-New 2013 Nissan Altima, backwards without knocking over a single cone.
The All-New 2013 Nissan Altima is a whole different family sedan compared to any other, even that of other versions of the Nissan Altima. Nissan created a much more efficient and lighter version of the Altima. To put that in perspective, the 2013 Nissan Altima reaches 100 mph, while only at 2,500 revolutions. Thats impressive. The reworked and heavily modified Continuously Variable Transmission is much to account for this. The 2013 Nissan Altima will come with the QR25DE 2.5L I4 that pushes out 182 HP and 180 LB.-Ft. of torque. It’s Front-Wheel Drive as usual but has an astonishing 0-60 time of only 7.1 seconds. And with all this power you still get the fuel economy of 27 City mpg and 38 Hwy mpg.
So now that we have a little information on the 2013 Nissan Altima that we are putting Ryan Lochte to the test in, lets see if he can handle the pressure of our challenge as well as he does the Olympics.
