Nissan Plans To Change Up It's Z Vehicles, Possibly with a Twin-Turbo Engine?

Written By, Brad R

The automotive industry has seen changes due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Many auto manufacturers have stopped production altogether, though Nissan had promised to roll out new vehicles by the end of the year. Updates have come out regarding the seemingly never-ending story of the next-generation Nissan Z sports car. Details provided by Autocar report that the plan was pushed back and the rumored “400Z” is expected to make its production debut at some point next year in 2021. Moves are still being made by Nissan however, the redesigned Z badge with a retro font similar to the popular Datsun 240Z. 

Nissan Plans For the Future

Nissan filed a trademark application in Canada for the new logo that will be visible on the 240Z-inspired nose. The exterior is expected to see a change for the Z as well. The taillights might be similar to the 300ZX, so in theory, at least, it’s promising to be a looker. The belief is that Nissan is headed towards a massive change that will bring a different dashboard design with a sleek new infotainment system resting in the middle, and with a new digital instrument cluster. But most importantly, the overall quality is understood to be greatly improved, with more high-end materials that will deliver the next Nissan vehicle to the United States is not only a new look, but as a better looking option. 

What Kind of Engine Can We Expect?

The modern 370Z has a 3.7-Liter V-6 engine, which supplies drivers a stout 332 horsepower for the base model and up to 350 horsepower for the Nismo trim. If Nissan will go up to 400 horsepower as first rumored, the future Z will certainly be capable of holding its own against any Nissan vehicle. The current Nissan line-up does contain a 400 horsepower engine in the Q60. But, the upcoming Z is going to be lighter, quicker and offer rear-wheel drive, likely with a dual-clutch automatic transmission placed between the engine and rear axle. A manual transmission might be offered. We'll have to wait and see. We can't count Nissan adding a twin-turbo engine. The most recent example is the 3.0-Liter twin-turbo V6 found in the 2018 SEMA, when they unveiled the Project Clubsport 23. Time will tell what we will see with the Z!
