2022 GT-R: a Revamped Icon

Nissan’s iconic sports car, the GT-R, has been revamped for 2022, bringing more power, more technology, and an overall greater experience. Nissan has introduced a new special model of the GT-R for 2022, which will be dubbed the “GT-R T-Spec”. This new special edition will offer an exclusive duo of color options from the R34 Skyline era; Millennium Jade, and Midnight Purple. Let’s take a look at some of the specs and features Nissan’s new version of their super car holds.

The 2022 GT-R’s standard twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6 makes an impressive 565 horsepower. The engine is hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive that give you incredible control and power. The GT-R’s quick steering, rigid structure, and adjustable suspension can make even amateurs feel like an accomplished race car driver from behind the wheel. The ride is firm but not punishing, and thanks to active sound cancellation, the thrum of the GT-R’s engine is nearly unnoticeable when cruising on the highway. Fuel economy is very good for a supercar, doing 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. 

Now, let’s take a look at the 2022 GT-R’s interior. The front seats have plenty of room, and are comfortable, and the rear seats, while they may not have as much leg room as the front, are still comfortable and get the job done. Every model features a dual-zone climate control, leather-and-suede-covered upholstery, heated front seats, and more. As for interior technology, every model has an 8.0-inch touchscreen that can be controlled with a rotary knob on the center console. Apple CarPlay capability, built-in navigation, and a Bose audio system are standard. The new GT-R will start at $115,000.

Let’s Look at the 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport

The Nissan Rogue has been a staple in Nissan’s line-up for the past few years, and it has impressed, but what if you want a crossover that is smaller but doesn’t sacrifice the Rogue’s quality and performance? Enter the 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport. The little sibling to the Rogue, the Rogue Sport was designed to have all the great and desirable features as the Rogue, but in a smaller package.

High quality materials, a mature look and feel, and plenty of space for your passengers and your cargo are all featured. All Nissan Rogue Sport SUVs come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A four-speaker sound system is standard, and you can upgrade to either a six-speaker system or a Bose premium sound system. As for the cargo space numbers, you’ll get 22.9 cubic feet with the seats up and 61.1 cubic feet with the seats folded down, which are great numbers for a compact SUV.

Nissan always puts in a great amount of detail into their safety systems and this is no different for the 2022 Rogue Sport. The Sport comes standard with a slew of safety features. These include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane intervention, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, rear automatic braking, and auto high beams.

Nissan Joins “Race to Zero” Campaign

Nissan has committed to reaching carbon neutrality and accelerating the implementation of electric vehicles by joining the “Race to Zero” campaign. Nissan has stated that they aim to make all of their vehicles offer fully electric capabilities by the early 2030’s. Right now Nissan has the LEAF and a soon to be released electric crossover, the Ariya, as their electric vehicles. Let’s dissect what Nissan has released so far regarding their commitment to the “Race to Zero” campaign.

According to its website, Race to Zero “mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, representing 733 cities, 31 regions, 3,067 businesses, 173 of the biggest investors, and 622 higher education Institutions.” As part of the campaign, Nissan signed a business ambition for 1.5C (34.7 degrees F) commitment, with the goal of keeping global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. Nissan has also joined a second organization that works with the UN-backed Race to Zero project. This organization is the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which focuses on carbon reduction. 

“Through joining the SBTi and participating in these campaigns, we are renewing our determination to work with like-minded companies and local governments around the world to solve the challenges of climate change and realize a sustainable society. To accelerate global efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, Nissan will continue to address various issues in a responsible manner, including further promotion of electrification.” – Makoto Uchida, CEO of Nissan.

Central to Nissan’s carbon neutrality plans is its rollout of electrified vehicles and technologies. This began in 2010 and continues today with the expansion of Nissan’s unique e-POWER technology and new fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan Ariya crossover. Nissan is aiming for 100% of its all-new vehicle offerings to be electrified in Japan, China, the United States and Europe by the early 2030s.

To accelerate this process, Nissan recently unveiled Nissan EV36Zero, a blueprint for the future of the automotive industry. Demonstrating the company’s 360-degree approach to zero-emissions, a new Electric Vehicle (EV) Hub in the UK is bringing together electric vehicles, renewable energy and battery production, accelerating the goal of carbon neutrality. We’ll be closely observing Nissan in their journey to shift their brand more electric. Stay tuned for more information regarding all things Nissan. We’ll keep you updated.

Nissan’s new Z model will be released in 2023, and it’s looking like the most impressive iteration of Nissan’s iconic sports car. For starters, this Z will be faster than ever, having a new turbocharged engine. This new Nissan Z will also be the most sleek and sporty, being compared to a ‘Dance Partner’ by Hiroshi Tamura (The new Z’s chief engineer.) Let’s take a look at the new information we have regarding the 2023 Nissan Z. 

Historically, Nissan’s sports car has branded an alphanumeric name, such as the outgoing 370Z model and the original 240Z. This changes for 2023 though, as the new generation will simply be called Z. The 2023 Z will be powered by a 400-hp twin-turbocharged V-6 engine, which will be paired with rear wheel drive and the choice of either a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic transmission. The new Z will be receiving a host of new technological updates and modernization, such as a new infotainment touchscreen, a digital gauge display that will be customizable, a suite of new driver-assistance features, and a redesigned interior and exterior that will impress. 

Speaking of redesigned interior and exterior, Nissan has told us that the new Z draws design inspiration from past models but gives us a glimpse into the future with updated technology and a more modern interior. Some of the new interior features include updated, higher quality materials, Leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, standard Apple Car Play and Android Auto, as well as an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. 

Nissan has included some great performance features as well, making this new 2023 Z a fierce competitor in the sports sedan market. A new mechanical limited-slip differential is featured, helping distribute power to the driven wheel with the best grip, assisting you in corners. For the first time on any Z model is Nissan’s launch control system. Launch control helps eliminate wheel spin and hop, by governing the engine at a pre-set rpm and modulating power as you pull away to give you the fastest, most consistent acceleration each time. 

The suspension system and steering have been reconfigured as well. Nissan wanted to make sure that the new 2023 Z stayed true to the feeling of previous models. They plan on achieving this by featuring new mono tube shocks, new front geometry and rear suspension tuning, as well as electric power steering, which will be a first for the Z.

The new generation of the Nissan Z will launch in the spring of 2022. Stay tuned for any more news that comes out regarding the new Z. We’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.
