No one can actually remember when the Z first appeared. However, in December 2014, the Vice President of Nissan said something that Z fans interpreted as a comeback of this amazing model.
Despite there’s not a lot of information regarding the 2018 Nissan Z, the fact is that rumors are countless. Let’s take a peek to see what you can expect from the 2018 Nissan Z.
2018 Nissan Z Release Date
Most rumors are pointing to late 2017 for the 2018 Nissan Z to appear in the showrooms. Some even mention that it can only appear in the beginning of 2018.
2018 Nissan Z Price
Despite we might see a slight increase in the price of the 2018 Nissan Z, the fact is that Nissan can’t really price up too much or it could put them out of the current market segment. So, we expect that you might be able to get the 2018 Nissan Z between $31,000 and $51,000.
2018 Nissan Z Redesign and Changes
Despite it’s still hard to know exactly what to expect from the 2018 Nissan Z, the fact is that it should only be a small facelift rather than a completely new model.
However, Nissan should introduce some of the usual changes like updating the lighting both on the front as well as on the rear, revising the front grille, and updating the bumpers.
Since Nissan is trying to open up to a wide range of buyers, they should take the suspension into consideration. So, it’s highly probable that there is an introduction of a double wishbone suspension that will give drivers a better ride quality.

2018 Nissan Z Specs
You might expect some changes in the specs of the 2018 Nissan Z. We believe that the 2018 Nissan Z will continue with the 3.7-litter V-6 motor. However, they should try to improve the horsepower or making a strong bet on the fuel economy. Despite achieving both is very difficult, this may mean that you’ll have a 332 of horsepower.
Another thing that you can count with is the introduction of a new engine – a 2-litter 4-cylinder. The only doubt remains as if this motor will make it to the United States market.
In what concerns to the transmission, you should be able to choose between a 7-speed auto and a 6-speed manual.
2018 Nissan Z Interior
We believe that there will be slight improvements in the interior of the 2018 Nissan Z. The infotainment system should come with a touchscreen where you’ll be able to control most of the features, as well as the steering wheel, may become sleeker. The steering wheel might also include some controls when it’s released.
Despite this is not a major upgrade of the Z, Nissan is really trying to gather more people attention. While you’re waiting for the 2018 Nissan Z release, make sure to read more about new car releases.
