2019 Nissan Z Concept, Price and Release Date
Perhaps, there are still many people who do not know about the new 2019 Nissan Z, but recently we got some rumors about the car. Most of them are talking about the design and the engine that will be the main focus on its development. Here are some assumptions and speculations we have collected after collecting some reports on the internet.
The design will be futuristic with smaller bodywork compared to the forerunner. If you see the current models presented by Nisan such as the Sentra or the Murano, you may recognize that the details of the new 2019 Nissan Z are similar to those vehicles. Rumors said that the concept and the production models would remind you to the Nissan 370Z especially for its proportions. Of course, there are some differences to set. First, it will be sleeker and more aerodynamic designs with the gaping front end, a striking look borrowed from the recent GT-R. The front grille has wider and longer look with the broader grill and side vents. The car also has sleeker front lights than the Sentra for a more sports-like look.
Some subtle improvements are added to the cabin even if the interior is still recognizable because it is borrowed from the current 370Z Nismo. 2019 Nissan Z has more advanced electronic and infotainment systems. There will be no clunky control board for a cleaner and sleeker design. It has a similar steering wheel to the 370Z with the touch-screen technology. Even rumors revealed that the car might have Alcantara and natural leather seats cover.
2019 Nissan Z Engine
The engine that will be intended for the new 2019 Nissan Z is available in three options. The most powerful option will be the turbocharged 3.0 liter and V6 engine which is also available for the Infiniti Q60 Red Sport. It can make about 400 HP and 350 lb-ft of torque. About the transmission, it may get seven-speed dual clutch auto gearbox. Its performance should be close to the rivals, the Porsche 718 Boxster S and BMW M2. Another engine we expect is the baseV6 engine and 3.0 liter to make 300 hp ad 295 lb-ft of torque. It is also pointed out by rumors that the company will introduce a hybrid version with more powerful output than the current model. It is claimed to be a combination of V6 and 3.0 liter with an electric motor to make 160 hp. It works with the dual-clutch gearbox to make 500 hp.
