2017 Nissan Z35

Something new is coming from Japan and it is the 2017 Nissan Z35 model. This is a new type Z vehicle coming from the Japanese market which will be solely aimed to appear for the US audiences. The car was released as a concept first wit the name Z35 given as a codename at first. We only knew that we were getting a Z vehicle at first and there were not a lot of information released once we entered the period before the car’s official announcement.

The concept that made its debut first was also the initial appearance of the car and it showcased a model of the future. The typical Japanese styling and most of all engineering is what is going to grace this model. The car is being made at the American market, so you will see a lot of specs adapted to address the market’s needs and characteristics. The car is also based on the Datsun design which was a legendary one for Japan but also very interesting for the American consumers.

Once the concept version was showcased it did not take too long for the information about the production level vehicle to appear. The model will be issued very soon and we can expect its arrival on US soil a lot faster than initial anticipated. The market is perhaps in a dire need of this kind of a car and we can do well within a model the type of the 2017 Nissan Z35.

Exterior Design and Adaptations

The design of the 2017 Nissan Z35 is particularly interesting. It does adapt itself to be a good choices for the American market and mainly incorporates the characteristics of a car which will adapt to this kind of a market. But the ne Z35 vehicle will get to us a  top targa framework which was incorporated in order to appeal to a wider range of audiences and get to be offered to a mixture of people who would like it. This kind of a style has been used around the industry for a period of time now and mainly uses the design of the typical Z vehicles but in a different sort of way.

The previous 350Z which was adapted to the 370Z car took a similar route and perhaps they are going to use much of the same stuff here. Looking at the Z35 we can notice that it resembles the latest Z model, namely the 370Z. It actually looks like a scaled down version of the same kind of a car, but it does include some of the details that are mainly unique to it. The design of the 2017 Nissan Z35 is pretty exciting and looks great and might even open new horizons for the Z vehicle coming from Nissan.

Inside Appearance and Changes

2017-nissan-z35-interior

The interior of the 2017 Nissan Z35 is actually discussed less than all the other parts of the car. As the outside is based on the previous Z models, the interior will follow the same kind of pattern. On the inside you will get to see the usual kind of details being incorporated and there are going to be featured some modernistic updates as well. The similarities for the design can be compared with the 370Z model but there are all kinds of pieces which one would say are only standard for this car.

There are far less pictures featured for the inside of the Nissan Z35 but as we have learned, it will incorporate an all new and contemporary array of gadgets. The added technology will make you feel like you are in a space shuttle rather than in a car which might be a good thing. They do not go overboard of course and watch so the weight is not exceeded but the car does provide a whole lot of new things and interesting things as well. The lightweight structure of the car is kept and we are in no way treated to a cluttered inside.

Engine Specs

There is quite an interesting concept proposed for the powertrain of the 2017 Nissan Z35 car. It was mentioned tam it is best that the car uses a 4-cylinder V-6 engine, which would also be perfect for the market as well. The proposed pwoertrain will certainly use a 2.5 liter turbocompresseur system that also combines with an immediate infusion. But the car is making at least 330 stopping procedure hp, with the exact number coming down to somewhere around 280 stopping procedure hp, which is more realistic for now. The performance of the car is perhaps going to be the main priority and they are also addressing the fuel consumption and gas emission rates with this car, giving it an environmentally-safe tagline to cope with the current style of the engine.

2016 Nissan GT-R Coupe

Nissan has announced the release of their updated 2016 Nissan GT-R coupe vehicle which is scheduled to make a comeback as an updated version this year. The new update is already available in Japan as the model has already been released in the home country of the model, but has yet to show itself in the US. Not to worry, it is coming soon as the release date is scheduled for just a month or two from now.

Nissan produced its first high performance car in 1969 and it was the first generation of the Skyline GT-R. It was first a four-door sedan car but it quickly transformed into a coupe and was notorious for its street racing and performance pedigree. The R32 was also the first model which made an impact on the foreign markets while  R33 and R34 only made it better and enhanced the popularity of the GT-R aboard.  But the modern version of the car we have learn to love came in 2007 and it was only five years after Nissan decided to separate the GT-R from the Skyline, making them two independent models. There has been an 8-year ling stint for the GT-R to receive the hybrid powertrain but it did benefit with a number of updates there. This latest and newest one is going to bring a long coveted range of additions that are going to be introduced to the model.

The bad news is that there is not going to be a significant updated in regarding the powertrain as many have wanted to receive. The 3.8-liter, V-6  engine is still going to be used here and transfers to the 2016 model still, but the good news is that some suspension enhancements have been made which counterbalances the lack of the engine update. This results in a reliable and stable race car which anyone would love to have.

Although the release date is still being awaited upon the pricing for the 2016 Nissan GT-R has been made available for the US market and we discuss all about it here in this review, so read on.

2016 Nissan GT-R exterior

The exterior of the 2016 Nissan GT-R has not gone through any dramatic sort of changes which would see it enhance its physical appearance in a grand manner. The aim for this vehicle was to enhance the performance rates and thus the suspension upgrades were something that they discussed primarily about. But as this is an update there are a few tweaks here and there that have happened. Something that is more noticeable is the headlamp design up front as the vehicle has new ones now while the back side of the car has a horizontal light placed at the diffuser part. Surprisingly enough, there were not any major changes made to the aerodynamics of the car.

We would have expected more from this refresh and actually anticipated at least a new array of colors added, but this did not make it to the design for the car. The model also gained new twin-spoke Rays wheel design in a Hyper Blue Black chrome finish which is only available for the Premium trim. Other available trims include the Track Edition trim, which add some drivetrain parts which have been designed by Nismo and aluminum wheels on the outside with a few other upgrades as well.

Interior changes

The interior of the 2016 Nissan GT-R is going to be mostly carried over as well. As the parts and the design of the cabin is going to be kept pretty much the same with not much actual changes happening on the inside, the only novelty is that the cabin is going to be a lot less quiet than before. The vibrations are much lesser thanks to a smaller tank which makes a lot less vibrations than before and is also bolstered with a new tank carpet which helps as well.

All of this is mostly made possible with the revised drivetrain management system  that also has the redesigned flywheel housing bearings. Riding in this car is now much bearable and much appropriate as you will enjoy every second of it. The revised suspension system does wonders and you can use the GT-R now for your daily trips and enjoy the ride every day.

Engine specs

The novelties under the hood of the 2016 Nissan GT-R still do not mean an engine change, but there are a lot of updates that are going to make the fans happy though, The car sticks with the twin-turbo, 3.8-liter V-6  engine that is going to be revised and updated for a better performance. With a transmission management systems, a retuned engine and revised flywheel housing bearings the vehicle is capable of making 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque even with the same six-speed, DCT. This is a great upgrade for the car and shows us that the 2016 update has succeeded in what it managed to do.

The car is more than fast with its acceleration rates that allow it to reach 0-60 mph in exactly 3 seconds and making a top speed of 193 mph. The fuel efficiency is still the same as the EPA rates for the car are 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.

Price and release date

The 2016 Nissan GT-R is already available in Japan as it made its debut last year. The release date is expected in a month or two for the US market as the GT-R will surely cross the pond and make its way to the American soil once more. The pricings have been released quite recently which further indicates that the car is coming to this market. The base MSRP price is around  $80,500 for the initial model while the Premium is priced $101,770 USD, the GT-R Black Edition is $111,510 USD and the GT-R NISMO has a price tag of $149,990 USD.

2016 Nissan Sentra Sedan

Nissan is going to update its third sedan in a row and this time we are talking about the 2016 Nissan Sentra model. This new vehicle will be the third one which is getting the Nissan’s striking design that the Altima and the Maxima have already been overhauled with. But it all started with the Murano which was the first one to receive this sort of an updated and it came in 2014 and it was only a matter of time when other vehicles in the lineup would start to adopt similar features, well now it is finally time for the Nissan Sentra sedan to get its.

The Sentra is actually the third most sold crossover vehicle coming from Nissan, right after the Altima and Rogue models, and it was always characterized of having a more of a bland look rather than a spectacular one. The dramatic change is actually something that is going to devoid it of the traditional look that we have been used to getting. This is actually going to be a great move on the part of Nissan as the subcompact market has becoming increasingly stronger in recent years.

The Nissan Sentra has started risking and was getting close in fighting a losing battle against the far more sexier looking Ford, Mazda or Hyundai releases which have started to get the attention of the public much more than the Sentra. Thus the new 2016 version of the Sentra is going to have a new and curvy design which is going to be similar to the Maxima which is certainly going to be more competitive with the Kia Fort, Honda Civic or your Mazda3 cars that have also been updated.

Sentra also receives a myriad of new technology which is going to be a major part of the updated and is going to be seen on the inside of the car and it is also going to get some luxury features and times that are going to be transferred from some larger and luxury Nissan models. We have received all the necessary news about the price and release date about the car and are presenting it in this review and the car is going to start sales soon.

The old bland look has disappeared and the 2016 Nissan Sentra is a much more luxury and very good looking car now. The greenhouse part of the car retains its shoulder-sided trunk and upright look but adds a more dramatic curve to the hood and a new more narrower grille design. The front side of the car also gives us some new arched front fenders  and C-pillar kickup which has a dramatic flair to it now and does well to remove the horizontal chrome bar from the previous model as well. The rear fascia has also been redesigned for the better part and now has new boomerang-shaped taillights.

The car is going to add new 17-inch wheels and there is also going to be some LED accent lighting. Generally speaking, it is still a bit more conservative looking compared to the Maxima but it does manage to hold itself on its own and compared to the other vehicles in the segment it is a much better car. With the Blade Runner set the outer part adds a bit of the  much-needed curb presence for the exterior of the car.

Interior update

The interior of the 2016 Nissan Sentra is inspired by some of the previous Nissan vehicles which had a sporty design. The most noticeable change are the high-mounted secondary controls and a driver-centric instrument panel but there are several other updates that are added to the Sentra. For instance, there is a new steering wheel, a LCD flat-panel display for infotainment, an instrument panel-mounted driver information system, a Siri Eyes Free connectivity in higher trims and new power seats .

As mentioned the car is going to offer some high-end features that were for the most part regarded standard for higher trims and upper level vehicle of Nissan and they include adding navigation, dual-zone climate control, upgraded Bose sound system,  a backup camera and the Nissan Connect infotainment system. A standout feature for this car is the intelligent cruise control, collision-mitigation automatic braking which is going to be combined with blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. These are just a few of the safety additions that are actively getting used inside smaller, less expensive cars, and the Sentra is one of the many which are going to start using them.

The car is going to come with only one pwoertrain option but the 2016 Nisan Sentra sedan is going to benefit a lot form it. The option in question is the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine which makes 130-horsepower. This vehicle is now capable of achieving 40mpg on the freeway and this is something that has not been changed compared to the previous one. The powertrain also combines with a Xtronic continuously variable transmission and also has an updated logic control module which gives you a more natural shifting ability.
