Major changes are expected from second generation of Nissan’s sport lineup. Its 370Z could bring many changes for 2017 year model, including powertrain and even name. Yes, it is being considering, so the 2017 Nissan 370Z could come as Z35 model, but it is not done deal yet. However, “Z” badge is to be served for couple more years. The car continues to be what it was, a small, two-door sport vehicle.
2017 Nissan 370Z hybrid
Except the name, other major change could happen. The 2017 Nissan 370Z or Z35 could come as hybrid vehicle. Experts predict that 2.0-l I-4 unit, deruved from Mercedes-Benz small cars could be paired with electric battery. This story has sense, since two companies are cooperating for some time. Hybrid technology is to be tested on this car, but it should bring lower fuel consumption without suffer on the performance end.

Although hybrid powertrain could be highlight of the new car, before that the new Nissan 370Z will appear in classic way, with gas drivetrain. A 3.0-l V6 is expected to feature direct-injection system for great performance. Some enthusiasts expect its output to reach 350 hp, but we doubt in it. Although, he Nismo variant might push it closer to this limit, but it is early to speak about further steps.
2017 Nissan 370Z design
Some rumors are telling that new Nissan 370Z comes with open top. This option could help the car look more sporty than other vehicles of same class from Nissan. However, Targa roof or T-bar type of roof shouldn’t be forgotten. The 2017 370Z will be sharper and more aggressive than before. Beside this, there is not more information available at the moment. We are sure that car will get the most recent features at its launch.
2017 Nissan 370Z release date and price
Experts predict that sport car won’t come out before 2017. But, time of the year is totally unknown from this stance. Same story is with the price, but that is somehow predictable. If some fans’ and expert’s stories and analyses are right, we should expect $60.000 as price tag for 2017 Nissan 370Z.
