Nissan took advantage of production shortfalls at Honda to push the Altima into second place last year, and now it is upping the ante. The all-new 2013 Altima will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show in April and go on sale in the fall. (The 2012 is seen above.) Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn wants to boost U.S market share from 8.2% in 2011 to 10%. Altima is the company's volume leader, so lots is at stake.
