2016 Nissan GT-R Release Date, Price, Msrp, Interior – The automobile giant went into the high performance manufacturer’s league back in ’69, when the likes of Skyline GT-R was unleashed into the market. Before the GT-R was the four door sedan, and the GT-R was able to make its name popular by overshadowing the sedan within a few years.
It went on and transformed into a coupe and went ahead and dominated the motorsport scene. The popular sports car that we know of today was first unleashed in 2007, and this is after the automobile giant, Nissan separated the GT-R model from the Skyline line-up.
For the upcoming year, Nissan is unleashing the brand new 2016 Nissan GT-R which will receive some important updates, and is already unleashed to the Japanese market as this year’s model in anticipation of hitting the Pacific for the United States market later in the year.
The upcoming new 2016 Nissan GT-R has not undergone any major surgery, but we expect the luxury brand automakers to incorporate latest designs and performance specs. The V6 engine will also be carried over to the new model, however the lack of powerplant updates will immensely counterbalance by the numerous enhancements made on its brake and suspension departments.
2016 Nissan GT-R exterior
The exterior of the new 2016 Nissan GT-R will significantly remain unchanged, as the company has focussed on enhancing the performance of the GT-R’s tires and suspension system.
Up front, buyers should expect slightly refreshed headlamps, but surprisingly enough, Nissan did not give it any refreshments in the aerodynamic department. At the back, the only novelty feature present is the horizontal light unit on the diffuser.
Sure enough, the present state of the current Nissan GT-R is still popular to go on without any major updates for a couple of more years to come, however it would be imperative if the automaker increased the current colour palette.
However, there is an addition to the Premium trim level. There will be a new twin-spoke Rays wheel design incorporated into the Hyper Blue Black chrome finish. Speaking of the trims, the automaker has made an add-on to the current versions. The new addition is the Track Edition trim which will come with Nismo engineered exterior and drivetrain parts.
2016 Nissan GT-R interior
Much like the exterior, the interior of the new 2016 Nissan GT-R will carryover unchanged. However, being the brand is a Mercedes, buyers should expect only but the best treatment in terms of convenience and comfort.
A new addition will be a quieter cabin, since the noise and vibration have been drastically brought down thanks to the redesigned flywheel housing bearings and drivetrain management system.
Moreover, buyers should expect a novel trunk carpet that will aid to reduce the noise too. Improving the ride quality will also be the revised suspension system and upgraded tires, a feat that will come handy to buyers who plan on using the 2016 Nissan GT-R for everyday basis.
2016 Nissan GT-R engine
Despite the new 2016 Nissan GT-R coming with the same engine and transmission management systems, and a refreshed flywheel housing bearings, the 3.8L V6 twin turbo engine outputs a similar amount of power as the model it is schedule to replace.
The output is pegged at a whopping 545 hp and 463 pounds of torque that will be transmitted to the wheels through the same 6-speed DCT.
The new 2016 Nissan GT-R will undoubtedly be fast as its predecessor, and will only require 3 seconds to sprint from 0-60 mph while the top speed is capped to 196 mph. the fuel efficiency ratings remain unchanged at 16/23 mpg in the city/highway. Its fuel tank capacity will be 19.0 gal.
The brand new 2016 Nissan GT-R might not come with added output figures, but the sports car will undeniably come with a precise steering and cornering stability than its predecessor. Contributing to the stability at high speeds and even on uneven road surfaces is the Dunlop run-flat tires.
It is unclear what type of a hybrid system the new 2016 Nissan GT-R will come with. Its curb weight will be in the neighbourhood of 3,800 lbs.
