Not a lot is understood about Nissan’s next Z-car. Early in December of 2014, Nissan’s vice president and international head of marketing, Roel de Vries, hinted that the 370 Z’s follower could have a range of engines, depending on a given market. Then, a week later on, word spread that the next Z-Car would be launched as a convertible (they were calling it “The Z”) and would probably have a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, hybrid engine. We’re intending to see the main launching of the next Z by 2018, but up until then let’s have a look at our making and what we intend to see when it makes a main launching in the coming years.
2018 Nissan Z Exterior
As you can see, we believe the 2018 Nissan Z will be low slung, and similar to the 370Z, simply smaller. Up front, you’ll acknowledge a grille just like 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 wider divider with are vents on the sides and a big Nissan emblem right in the middle. The headlights are also of a similar design, but the external 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 expecting a lot out of its next Z-car, so I believe the interior will be similar to the 2014 to 2015 370z Nismo, however a little better. The infotainment screen display screen will be of the touchscreen type, with many infotainment works done on screen– leaving no need for the control panel listed below the screen on the 370Z. I suspect we’ll see the same Z-branded wheel, however it will be improved by a sleeker design and, by the time it is released, it may even include some touchscreen manages itself. I believe the seats will likewise be a combination of leather and Alcantara, but 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 rate– eventually resulting in a less glamorous cabin.
2018 Nissan Z Engine
It needs to be noted, the 2018 Nissan Z will be smaller and lighter, that V-6 could be softened a lot more and still provide 0-to-60 miles per hour times in the 5- to six-second range. Obviously, Nissan could develop an entire brand-new V-6 for the next Z-car and if that is the case, who understands exactly what we’ll see under the hood. Either way, I do not think the brand will let us down with the choice they make. We simply have to wait until the time comes to see what they create.
2018 Nissan Z Release Date and Price
The brand-new Z is anticipated to land in display rooms by 2018, with the base model priced in the low-$30,000 variety and the twin-turbo nearing $50K.
