Its appealing easy-to-drive nature and Olympian powertrain make the new 2017 Nissan GT-R a compelling choice thanks to its stupefying acceleration and high-handling limits. Inasmuch as Nissan has tried to offer its new GT-R model plenty of technologies and features, there is no denying the fact that the vehicle is getting a bit up in years and this is well evidenced in its basic refinement levels. The Nissan GT-R release date should be expected sometime in early 2017.
The Nissan GT-R is one special vehicle that embodies the concept of optimizing bang for your buck. In fact, it compares to no other vehicle in its class. It has evolved over the years to become a powerful sports car that dispatches the likes of Jaguar F-Type, 2017 Acura NSX, Audi R8, and the Porsche 911 Turbo effortlessly.
Back then all it could cost you was about 70,000 USD to get a 485-horsepower – generating version of the GT-R, this over time became overshadowed by newer and fresher rivals. Nissan therefore had no choice but to invigorate its model by offering latest technologies and an eye-popping performance, which over time led to the creation of the 2017 Nissan GT-R that not only promises an astonishing track performance, but also offers creature comforts and luxuries. The result is a vehicle that costs in the region of six figures.
In terms of performance, the new GT-R comes with a twin-turbocharged V6 that generates an output of about 550-horsepower. The all-wheel drive system is rear biased and is controlled by a plethora of computer-controlled systems that, depending on prevailing factors, alters the torque.
Combine all this features with an adjustable suspension system and you get yourself a stellar and seamless performance. However, for those looking to lay waste to all challengers with minimal effort should opt for the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo version that churns out an incredible 600- horsepower.
Some of the features to expect from the new 2017 Nissan GT-R redesign include dual-zone automatic climate control, upgraded suspension system, Recaro front bucket seats, carbon aerodynamic work, and creature comforts. The only downside to owning the GT-R include a clunky transmission system, and a costlier price tag.
2017 Nissan GT-R Trims
Just as before, three trims are offered for the new 2017 Nissan GT-R: Black Edition, Premium, and Nismo. The 2017 GT-R Hybrid review should be expected some few weeks to its release date.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R Black Edition gets black and red interior trim, a carbon-fiber rear spoiler, light-weight black alloy wheels, leather sport seats, and a carbon-fiber rear spoiler.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo is the top-of-the-line vehicle that further builds upon what the Black Edition offers by adding a distinctive interior and exterior trim, underbody reinforcements, a more powerful engine, a titanium exhaust system, aerodynamic upgrades, and a firmer suspension system.
2017 Nissan GT-R Engine Specs & Fuel Economy
550 hp and 463 pounds-feet of torque is generated by the 3.8L V6 turbocharged engine offered under the hood of every 2017 Nissan GT-R with the exception of the Nismo model. This power is transmitted to the ground by the sophisticated all-wheel drive system via the six-speed automated manual transmission.
An upgraded version of the same engine gets the 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo a power output rated at 600 horsepower and 481 pounds-ft. of torque.
Fuel economy with the Nismo is expected to check in at 16/22/19 mpg in the city/highway/combined. More information is available on the fueleconomy.gov website.
