2023 Nissan Z: Specifications and Review

We haven’t seen a new Z car since 2008, but the wait is finally over. The 2023 Nissan Z, dubbed the 400Z is back.

With its 375-hp twin-turbo V-6 and six-speed manual transmission, the new Z has all of the right components to become a classic car in its own right. Read on to find out more about the 2023 Nissan Z.

The 2023 Nissan Z

The Nissan Z is back. After a long hiatus, Nissan’s iconic sports car is returning to the market.

It will have an upgraded interior with high-quality materials, an improved infotainment system, and new safety features such as adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking.

Many fans of its predecessor have eagerly anticipated the return of the Z, and it’s hard not to see why: The original 240Z established itself as one of the most beloved cars ever produced by Nissan in 1970.

Over its lifetime span (from 1970 through 2002), this iconic coupe was renowned for its low cost of ownership and rear-wheel-drive layout (a rarity at the time).

The Nissan Z was an iconic performance car for the brand that ended production in 2003. It was a two-door coupe, rear-wheel drive, and had plenty of power under its hood.

It was also Japanese, like all other Nissan’s before, except the GT-R line that started in 2007 with the second generation model. The Nissan Z price starts at $41,015.

2023 Nissan Z High-Quality Cabin

The Z cabin is a high-quality space with materials that feel great to touch. The leather seats are comfortable and supportive and don’t leave you feeling hot or sweaty when sitting in traffic.

The navigation system is easy to use, as is the infotainment system. The audio system on the 2023 Nissan Z has been upgraded, with the car having a 10-inch touchscreen display that helps drivers navigate their music collection through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integration with GPS navigation services like Google Maps built into it as well.

A digital amplifier delivers sound from both sources at high-quality levels so passengers will never miss out on any detail.

Neither will drivers who want to plug their phones into auxiliary ports located behind cup holders on either side of them (for those who prefer cordless headphones).

The vehicle handles bumps well without jarring passengers during turns or sudden stops.

Long-Awaited V-6 Power

After a long absence, the Nissan Z is finally back. And it’s a V-6, which is strange for an enthusiast car.

The new Z packs 400 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque from its 3.5L twin-turbo V6 engine (you can even specify your tune for more power).

Compared to its old NISMO version, that’s up by 90hp and 44lb/ft; however, Nissan claims that overall efficiency is up by 12 percent thanks to refinements made to the eight-speed automatic transmission.

2023 Nissan Z Powertrain Details

The Z’s powertrain is a 3.7L V6 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 335 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, which are then sent to all four wheels via Nissan’s 4WD system.

Nissan Z comes with 18 mpg city and 25mpg highway recommendations and 22 mpg combined. It has an EPA estimated range of 500 miles on one fuel tank.

2023 Nissan Z Weight and Dimensions

The Nissan Z weighs 3,865 lbs, measures 182.3 in long, 73.8 in wide, 54.1 in tall, and has a 107.5-in wheelbase.

The cargo volume is 13.4 cu ft with the seats up and 38 cu ft with the seats down, respectively; both figures are smaller than those of its competitors’ cars.

2023 Nissan Z Engine Transmission

The Z has a 3.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine that generates 400 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, which puts the power to all four wheels via an electronically controlled limited-slip differential.

The Z accelerates from 0–60 mph in 5.2 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Package or 5.1 seconds without it; either way, it’ll run the quarter-mile in 13 seconds flat at 106 mph.

The Z has an excellent fuel economy compared to competitors in the same line and other brands.
