2017 Nissan GTR Specs, Redesign, Release Date

Posted on

The GT-R is arguably one of the best automobiles of the decade or even century. When it was first launched, it provided something most cars didn’t, supercar beating performance at sports car price. Issues went well for the GT-R dubbed Godzilla due to its sheer strength, however once it received a few updates it turned pricier and no longer made such a great proposal. Suddenly the Vette and even the Camaro had a better bang for the buck. Well, 2017 is a big year for the GT-R and Nissan. The 2017 Nissan GTR has been thoroughly overhauled, the changes made in this year alone are most likely twice as big as all of the changes introduced through the previous years.

2017 Nissan GTR Exterior and Interior

The Nissan GTR 2017 base model should be expected to feature reshaped nose and lower hood height. The front end brings V-bar mask. The air intake setup is similar to the present model’s, however with hood scoop above the V-shaped grille. The roofline of the automobile can be dramatically lowered. Additionally, you will see redesigned LED adaptive headlights, horizontal taillights, a revised diffuser, keyless entry, keyless ignition, an adaptive suspension system, summer performance tires and 20 inches forged alloy wheels.

There are some fairly main changes inside too, with improvements in both design and quality. The dashboard is now covered completely in leather and there is a new 8 inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, which can be operated using controller on the center console. Like earlier versions of the GT-R, there may also be a display for important information about the automobile, oil pressure indicator and including fluid temperatures. As well as being easier to use, the 2017 Nissan GTR looks fresher inside too, with fewer buttons cluttering things up. Also, the earlier models’ circular air vents have been changed by horizontal ones, sitting beneath the new screen. Finishing off the inside modifications is a new steering wheel, which now has the gearshift paddles attached to it, rather than the steering column.

2017 Nissan GTR Engine Specs

Engine of the Nissan GTR 2017 might be slightly updated, as we have already grown accustom to from the Japanese because inside and outside look is nothing if it doesn’t go as fast. The present GT-R has 545-horsepower and 463-lb-ft of torque from its 3.8-L twin turbo V6 and, based on rumors, updated hybrid powertrain on the 2017 GT-R might produce around 565-HP  due to the same 3.8-L V6 which is for 20-hp greater than earlier model. This enormous power might be sent trough all 4 wheel via the 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission which will be redone so the launch control sends you towards finish line much more faster. Due to all of this Nissan GT-R 2017 should have under 2.6 second sprint from 0 – 62 MPH and top speed over 200-MPH.

Based on various sources, we should expect the new model to go on the market sometime in early 2017. The 2017 Nissan GTR price starts from an MSRP of $102,000, while that of the Nismo from $150,000.
