2022 Nissan Z, 400Z the Reviews
The popular Japanese sports car, the Nissan Z, is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year. The manufacturer is said to be preparing to unveil the all-new 2022 Nissan Z at some upcoming event. However, many pictures of this intriguing concept are available, and we have to admit that the Nissan Z looks like a real competitor to the Toyota Supra.
If you didn’t know, the Nissan 370Z is finally retiring after more than a decade on the market. He will replace the new Christian Z model. We also got some info about the engine and it looks like the Nissan Z will use the same unit as the Infiniti Q50 and Q60 Red Sport 400 models. Unlike most sports cars today, we hope that the upcoming 2022 Nissan Z will bring something unique.
2022 Nissan Z Styling
As mentioned, images of the Z Concept are available and as we can see the new model carries the recognized Nissan genes. The design language is similar to what we saw on the previous 370Z model. Vintage elements available in the new Z also evoke the design of the original Datsun 240Z. Basically, the 2022 Nissan Z comes with the same round headlights, long hood and short rear. Even car decals feature an old-fashioned font.
Overall, the design is completely new, and the Nissan Z combines modern technology with recognizable Nissan design elements that refer to the past.
2022 Nissan Z cabin
Nissan hasn’t changed the interior design of the 2022 Nissan Z at all. This model is in the form of a two-seater coupe and has a modern cabin. The manufacturer did a great job adding more updated materials and improvements to the interior of the current 370Z. To justify fan expectations, Nissan offers genuine stitched leather upholstery, power seats and dual-zone automatic climate control.
It also comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the latest NissanConnect user interface. Images of the Concept Z also reveal a fully digital meter display, a Bose-designed navigation and premium audio system.
2022 Nissan Z Powertrain and Performance
Under the hood, the 2022 Nissan Z needs a very powerful engine to compete with the Toyota Supra and Porsche 718 Cayman. The Nissan Z is said to be based on a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that produces at least 400 horsepower. The same powertrain models operate as the Infiniti Q50 and Q60 Red Sport 400.
This unit will most likely be paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission or an installed manual transmission. Also, like previous Zs, power will be sent to the rear wheels.
2022 Nissan Z Release date and price
The latest 2022 Nissan Z will bring a more aggressive design than the 350Z. We expect the new model to reach dealers in the US before the end of this year. Although Nissan will initially sell its upcoming Z coupe, we can also expect a convertible after a year or two.
As for the price, the new Z is slightly more expensive than the 2020 model, which starts at $31,015. However, a competitor like the Supra doesn’t come at a price, and the four-cylinder engine model starts at $43,985, while the six-cylinder models cost $51,985.
2022 Nissan 400Z
Nissan is just beginning to launch a (much needed) onslaught of new cars. The surprisingly good new Rogue has just launched, and Nissan’s Ariya electric crossover is coming soon, along with the new Pathfinder and new Frontier.
But the car we’re most excited about is the new Z sports car, which will almost certainly be called the 400Z. It will completely replace the old 370Z, which has been in production since 2008, and will compete with everything from the Toyota GR Supra to the Ford Mustang to the Porsche 718 Cayman.
When will the 2022 Nissan 400Z be released? Well, the brand says the new Z should debut in the spring of 2021 (although it may not be on sale for a while after that). Here’s everything we know so far about the new Nissan sports car.
After making the Z Proto concept a staple in Brie Larson’s commercials for months, Nissan has confirmed when and where we all meet with a production release: August 17, 2021 in New York City.
The biggest question mark surrounding the new 400Z (or, as it may be called, just the 2022 Nissan 400Z is when exactly buyers can place their orders and take one home. Nissan previously said it plans to unveil the new car in the spring of 2021, but with the current microchip shortage causing problems in the auto industry, production may be delayed. A recent report from forum newnissanZ.com claims that according to an anonymous source within Nissan, order books for the new Nissan Z won’t open until November 15. (Here we hope they are wrong.)
2022 Nissan 400Z price
A poster from the 400zclub.com forum claiming to have inside information on the new Nissan sports car suggests that it could be wonderfully affordable. According to an anonymous source, the 2022 Nissan 400Z starts at $34,995, which gives it more bang for your buck than the Toyota Supra.
Last September, Nissan revealed the Z Proto concept shown here. Conceptually, it was much closer to production-ready than, say, the portable GT-R.
An Australian patent application from Nissan in January showed a car very similar to the concept. With sleek, modern styling and nods to the Z cars of yesteryear, the new 2022 Nissan 400Z should satisfy all interested parties.
2022 Nissan 400Z engine
A lot of car racing games are meant to be as realistic as possible – so a recent Project Cars 3 leak detailing the 2022 Nissan 400Z explicit specs gives us reason to be excited. The video game listed the sports car with 444 horsepower and an empty weight of 3,252 pounds—making it both lighter and more powerful than the Toyota Supra.
Nissan said the Z Proto uses a twin-turbo V6 engine. Maybe that means he got a twin-turbo V6 from the Infiniti Q60 Coupe. This car has a base model with 300 hp and a Red Sport model with 400 hp; As the new Supra shows, both power levels match the new Z sedan.
Nissan offered the Z Proto with a six-speed manual transmission, with an automatic option “in development”. It would make sense for the other option to be the Q60’s seven-speed automatic.
