2023 NISSAN Z – In 2009, the current-generation Z vehicle made its debut. The Z has remained largely unchanged since its 2019 introduction, despite a minor powertrain and design changes. Nissan has finally introduced the seventh-generation Z vehicle after what seems like an eternity of waiting. It’s simply called the 2023 Nissan Z this time, with no numeral suffix. When it arrives, here’s what to expect.
2023 NISSAN Z Design
The 2023 Nissan Z will launch an all-new retro-inspired teardrop design that incorporates design elements from previous iterations of the famous Z. It will have a tall hood and a low rear stance that will give it a strong presence on the road. LED lighting is used all throughout the place, which adds to its amazing appearance. Nissan will use aluminum for the doors, hood, and hatchback of the new Z, as weight is a major concern.
2023 NISSAN Z Interior
Inside, the 2023 Nissan Z will be tightly packed, as any real sports vehicle should be, providing a secure, glove-like fit for its two occupants. Except for the 240Z-inspired triple gauge cluster in the middle and a huge 8- or 9-inch infotainment touchscreen with standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the dashboard will be quite plain. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster with customisable gauges and styles will break up the relatively vintage configuration.
Despite the fact that it is a sports car, Nissan will not skimp on safety features. Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian recognition, blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beam headlights, and forward-collision warning will all be standard on the 2023 Nissan Z. The IIHS is unlikely to test the new Z, so keep an eye out for any official crash-test results.
2023 NISSAN Z Powertrain
The 2023 Nissan Z will be powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the same as the INFINITI Q60 Red Sport 400. This power is routed through a six-speed manual transmission – yes, a manual! – and a carbon-fiber composite driveshaft to the rear wheels. Instead of the manual, buyers can choose for a paddle-shifted nine-speed automatic transmission with launch control.Although there is no official 0-60 time, Nissan claims that it is 15 percent faster than the existing model. With the 2020 Nissan 370Z NISMO reaching 60 mph in roughly five seconds, the new Z’s 0-60 time would be around 4.25 seconds.
2023 NISSAN Z Price & Release date
The 2023 Nissan Z does not yet have an official release date, but the carmaker anticipates it arriving in showrooms in the spring of 2022. Pricing is also unknown, although we expect it to start around $40,000, same to the Supra.
