Nissan 2023 Z Has Arrived. Everything You Need to Know About

The Nissan 400Z is essentially a Nissan Z. 

To begin, the name. The automobile we believed would be dubbed the 2022 Nissan 400Z is really called the 2023 Nissan Z – a more ambiguous moniker for a new version of the sports car.

Nonetheless, the 400Z moniker would have been more appropriate, as this new Nissan produces 400 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine — the same engine found in the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport. As with the Infiniti, it produces 350 lb-ft of torque across a broad range of 1,600 to 5,600 rpm. 

Yes, a stick shift is available.

Unlike the Infiniti, which offers just a nine-speed automatic transmission, owners of the 2023 Z will have an option between the nine-speed slushbox (equipped with paddle shifters, of course) and a six-speed manual transmission with a high-performance clutch. However, regardless of whatever gearbox you choose, you'll be able to execute sweet hole shots on demand, as both feature launch control functionality. 
At the bottom cushion, the new performance-oriented seats resemble the original 370z seats.

Nonetheless, the back has undergone significant design changes, including sharper lines and what appears to be suede or Alcantara in the centre sections of the seats.

The yellow Nissan Z featured a yellow accent line running down the seat, while the Metallic Blue model features the same coloured leather-appointed performance seats covered in synthetic suede.

The cabin continues to pay homage to the Z's forefathers. Three analogue binnacles perched above the dashboard are classic Z vehicle, but this latest edition now features an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen (9.0-inch on the top Performance specification) and a customizable 12.3-inch digital metre display.

The door handles and steering wheel design are also reminiscent of earlier generations. The standard interior colours are black, red, and blue, with yellow accents and stitching on the Z Proto Spec edition vehicle.

Apart from manual and automatic, the new Z is available in two additional trim levels: Sport and Performance. The Sport trim level features 18-inch wheels and two-piston front/single-piston rear brakes; the Performance trim level features 19-inch wheels with performance-oriented tyres, bigger brake discs, and floating four-piston front/two-piston rear callipers. Additionally, performance automobiles include dual exhaust systems.

Inside, each 2023 Nissan Z represents a significant step forward from its predecessor. When it comes to the 2020 Nissan 370Z's guts, it has a feel that is reminiscent of the early Obama years. However, the all-new car has technology that feels very much like it belongs in today's world — while still retaining the look of the previous generation. Analogue gauge pods for boost, turbo speed, and voltage are included as standard equipment, but a digital instrument panel with a 12.3-inch display is also available.

The seats are designed to look like those seen in the Nissan GT-R. In terms of infotainment, sport models come standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen system with a six-speaker stereo, while performance models are standard with a 9.0-inch system with an eight-speaker Bose audio system.

The new Nissan Z's styling is familiar, yet cutting-edge.
Perhaps you have already seen the Z Prototype, considering the fact that it is quite possibly (most likely) in your life.you're reading this. If so, the 2023 Nissan Z should look very familiar. In addition to being reminiscent of classic Z-car silhouettes, the LED headlights are intended to resemble the 240ZG of the 1970s and the 300ZX of the 1980s. The purpose of the LED tail lights is to resemble the 240ZG of the 1970s.

What will the price of the new Nissan Z be?

That is yet to be determined. Nissan had not yet released pricing for the new car as of press time. (The company's COO stated in an interview that he expected it to start around $40,000, but that there was considerable room for negotiation.) Still, with the 2023 Z not expected to arrive in showrooms until spring 2022, Nissan has plenty of time to iron out the details...and hopefully, the price will be close to the outgoing model's $30,090 starting point.

The new Nissan Z price and release date have been announced.

Nissan's seventh-generation Z will arrive in US dealerships in early 2022 as a 2023 model. At the moment, there are no plans to offer it in the European market, presumably because to concerns about ever-tougher emissions rules.

It will be available in Sport and Performance trim levels, as well as a limited-edition Z Proto variant restricted to just 240 units — a nod to the original 240Z. Pricing in the United States should be comparable to the comparably powerful Toyota GR Supra, which starts at roughly $45,000.

Nissan 300ZX-Inspired Iconic Taillights

Finally, we arrive at the rear of the vehicle, which has to be our favourite section.

The fastback's seamless integration into the rear with its black roof adds an aggressive look that the 370Z lacks.

The rear decklid is completely black, with stacked LED taillights reminiscent of the early Z cars, such as the 300ZX shown below.

The rear of the new Z resembles a Japanese muscle car from the Burnout video game series—if you know what we're talking about.

The 400z features dual exhaust and a stunning carbon fibre diffuser beneath the classic, retro-styled taillights.

The final touch is the Fairlady Z emblem atop the decklid, which is absolutely stunning!
