2018 Nissan GT-R: Redesign Info, Release Date

  March 22, 2016
Other Model Years»

Rumors have swirled about the next-generation Nissan GT-R expected sometime in 2018. Some reports have suggested that Nissan's next version of its "Godzilla" car would make use of a hybrid powertrain. If true, the move would echo Acura's decision to make its upcoming 2017 NSX a hybrid.

Reliable details on the car's gas engine are not yet available. The current car features a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 making 550 hp with 463 lb-ft of torque. A range-topping NISMO model ups the output to 600 hp and 481 lb-ft. A dual-clutch automated manual transmission is standard. The car comes with all-wheel drive as the only available setup to handle the car's tremendous power.

Official pricing for the 2018 Nissan GT-R is still a long way off. For reference, the current car starts at $103,365 with destination and ranges up to $151,585 in top-spec form. For 2017, the GT-R is set to get a new base model called the GT-R Pure that lacks some of the well-appointed extras of the current GT-R Premium like a hand-stitched interior.

A release date hasn't been announced yet, but the car's typical release schedule generally puts it well into the latter half of the calendar year, which would put it in late 2017.

Stay tuned for the latest updates as they become available.
