Not a lot is known about Nissan’s next Z-car. Early in December of 2014, Nissan’s vice president and worldwide head of marketing, Roel de Vries, hinted that the 370 Z’s successor could have a range of engines, depending on an offered market. Then, a week later on, word spread that the next Z-Car would be released as a convertible (they were calling it “The Z”) and would probably have a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, hybrid engine. We’re hoping to see the main launching of the next Z by 2018, however up until then let’s have a look at our rendering and exactly what we intend to see when it makes an official debut in the coming years.
2018 Nissan Z Exterior
As you can see, we believe the 2018 Nissan Z will be low slung, and just like the 370Z, just smaller. Up front, you’ll acknowledge a grille similar to what we see on the 2016 Nissan Sentra, however for the Z, we’ve expanded on it a bit. Instead of a thin, flat-V-shaped divider, the grille accepts a larger divider with are vents on the sides and a big Nissan emblem right in the middle. The headlights are likewise of a similar style, but the outer points– the ones that point towards the side mirrors– those are longer and more pronounced, giving the car a sportier set of eyes compared with the Sentra.
2018 Nissan Z Interior
I believe Nissan is anticipating a lot out of its next Z-car, so I suspect the interior will be similar to the 2014 to 2015 370z Nismo, however a little much better. The infotainment screen display screen will be of the touchscreen type, with most infotainment operates done on screen– leaving no requirement for the control panel below the screen on the 370Z. I presume we’ll see the exact same Z-branded steering wheel, but it will be improved by a sleeker design and, by the time it is launched, it may even consist of some touchscreen controls itself. I presume the seats will also be a mix of leather and Alcantara, however keep in mind that is just early-on speculation. As far as we understand, the next Z-car is stated to slot prior to the 370 and 350zs, so it will probably come at a lower cost– eventually causing a less glamorous cabin.
2018 Nissan Z Engine
It ought to be kept in mind, the 2018 Nissan Z will be smaller and lighter, that V-6 could be reduced much more and still offer 0-to-60 mph times in the 5- to six-second variety. Naturally, Nissan might develop an entire brand-new V-6 for the next Z-car and if that holds true, who understands what we’ll see under the hood. Either way, I do not believe the brand name will let us down with the decision they make. We simply have to wait until the time comes to see exactly what they create.
2018 Nissan Z Release Date and Price
The new Z is anticipated to land in showrooms by 2018, with the base model priced in the low-$30,000 range and the twin-turbo nearing $50K.
