Nissan was supposed to release the 2016 Nissan 370Z, which is a new model of their original 240Z back in 1999 but they never really went through with it. Because of this, many people hoped that their seventh generation of the car would be a return to the original but unfortunately this was just proved to be wrong with Nissan released a statement which said that their next generation Nissan 370Z 2016 is going to run on an upgraded platform of the current model, meaning that it will still be bigger than the competition as well as more expensive.
2016 Nissan 370Z price and release date
This might be a major drawback considering its main reason for existence is to offer fun to its driver and there are much cheaper cars which offer the exact same thing. However, Nissan does have a plan with it. It is said that this new Nissan 370Z 2016 is going to cost as low as $30,000 which is a $5,000 drop over the previous car. This is mostly due to the fact that the base engine will offer a completely new engine in the Nissan car lineup. The 2016 Nissan 370Z release date for the new car should be in the next couple of years, most likely at the end of 2016 or early 2017.
2016 Nissan 370Z specs
Let’s start our previous with what is going to live under its hood. As it sits now, the 2016 Nissan 370Z Nismo should get an upgraded 3.7-liter V6 with 350 horsepower and Nismo-tuned suspension. This will now offer more power and torque than before thanks to a direct injection system and it should also offer a 4% fuel consumption improvement. The performance is also likely to increase thanks to a lower total car weight. The news will come in the form of a newly Mercedes developed 2.0-liter turbocharged inline 4 engine which is going to power the base model of the new Nissan 370Z 2016. This is going to offer around 260 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque and it should offer the car a similar performance level to some other cars in this price range.
Nissan 370Z 2016 changes
However, the changes won’t stop under the Nissan 370Z 2016 body. The interior is going to be upgraded to be more comfortable than before while not ruining the car’s strongest point, its driving position which is probably the best in this price range. The exterior will also receive an update with a low of design elements taken from the GTR as well as from the new Maxima. The headlights are going to be the same as on the GTR while the front grille is going to remind us of the Maxima for sure. Another addition over the previous model is going to be the retractable rear spoiler which is going to help the 2016 Nissan 370Z tremendously at high speed.
