Nissan is introducing a new member of its Z-car lineage for the first time since 2008 to the automotive world. The all-new 2023 Nissan Z is promising to be the best performing vehicle of the nameplate yet.
Nissan Z 2023 has Some Good Attributes
In fact, the new Z has some difficult competition. However, if you are in the market for a front-engine, rear-drive, two-door performance car, the Z is just one of many types of machines one might consider buying. Below is some information compiled on how the Z does stand up to every sports coupe on the market today.
As had been suggesting for months, the Z is powering by a twin-turbocharged DOHC 3.0-liter V-6 engine. Then, particularly, Nissan’s VR30DDTT motor which is to be founded in the Infiniti Q50 and Q60. This engine will crank out 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque in the Z.
Nissan Z and Toyota Supra
In fact, it is very close with the 382 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque you get in the Toyota Supra. Thus, the Supra does utilize a 3.0 liter twin-turbo six-cylinder. Moreover, Toyota’s B58 engine is an inline unit.
It seems that both cars are really overshadowing by the BMW M2, in fact. Moreover, that is to due to the car’s turbocharged 3.0 -liter N55 inline-six, the M2 does pack 405 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque.
Nissan Z can’t Complete with Dodge Challenger
While the Z’s 400 hp may be enough to intimidate the likes of the 181-hp, 151 lb-ft Mazda MX-5 Miata, it can very confidently outstrip the 2022 Toyota GR 86. It, in fact, got a healthy boost of power to 228-hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Yet, it’s not quite on par with vehicles made in Detroit. In fact, the Mustang GT packs 460 hp from its 5.0-liter V-8. While the Chevrolet Camaro SS does produce 455 hp from its 6.2-liter V-8. Thus, the Dodge Challenger R/T has 375 hp with the 5.7-liter Hemi.
