New 2024 Nissan GTR R36 Engine, Release Date, Price

New 2024 Nissan GTR R36 Engine, Release Date, Price2024 Nissan GT-R is a high-performance sports vehicle that will fight against the Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, Audi R8, and Acura NSX in 2024. It launched in the United States in 2009 and has since been updated multiple times (with considerable price increases), but it has never been rebuilt.

While the GT-R excels at its purpose of explosive acceleration and track-ready handling, the price increases had diminished the initial value when it was priced as low as $77,000. However, the improvements have improved its livability to match its exceptional performance.

The 2024 Nissan GT-R remains primarily unchanged. It introduces a new color, Bayside Blue, and eliminates the mid-level Track Edition and 50th Anniversary Edition trim levels, leaving only Premium and Nismo. Although the GT-R has been on the market for a dozen years, it looks contemporary. It is priced similarly to a supercar but is not as apparent as a Lamborghini. It rides low and broad, evoking a Japanese interpretation of the sports coupe. The GT-R is built to put a lot of power down on the road. It features a front engine and a rear 6-speed automatic transmission and is equipped as standard with all-wheel drive, capable of sending up to 50% of its power to the front axle.

This power is provided by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-6 engine that produces 565 horsepower in standard form and 600 horsepower in Nismo form. Both versions of the GT-R can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mind-boggling 2.7 seconds. Unlike earlier generations of the GT-R, the current model is suitable for daily driving owing to supportive seats, a relatively spacious cabin, soft-touch interior materials, modern technology, active noise cancellation, and good ride quality. The GT-R is a relic of its generation when it comes to safety. It doesn’t have the dynamic safety systems that have become common in cars, and it has never been put through a crash test.

Interior

The Nissan GT-R has caught up to both the market and its price point in terms of interior materials and modern comforts. Although the rear seat is small, we like it in a sports car. However, the GT-cabin R’s are not opulent, and the new Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911 feature a more sumptuous interior. The GT-strength—comfortable R’s and supportive front seats—is counterbalanced by its tight back seat, which we score a 5 out of 10 for comfort and quality. The GT-R began as a raw and unadorned vehicle but has been upgraded with higher-quality materials and modern amenities.

Its infotainment system is up-to-date, its leather and trim are more in keeping with the price range, and its front seats are supportive and comfy. The standard GT-R is also easy to drive on a daily basis thanks to active noise suppression and adjustable dampers, but the Nismo variant is more stretched out and rides rougher. The GT-R is a two-seater with a tiny rear seat that comfortably seats two children but not two ordinary people. To be honest, we admire it, given that rivals such as the Audi R8 and Corvette lack a back seat entirely. While the trunk is compact, it is larger than some competing sports cars’ cargo spaces.

Engine

The GT-twin-turbocharged R’s 3.8-liter V-6 produces 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque, while the Nismo model’s version produces 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The V-6 engine, along with the AWD system and six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, propels the GT-R from 0-60 mph in an incredible 2.7 seconds in both the basic and Nismo models. The max speed is 186 miles per hour. Unless you activate the launch control, the V-6’s power pauses briefly owing to turbo lag before resuming normally.

Then it re-secures you in your seat as you cling on for the ride of a lifetime. The Nismo is equipped with turbochargers from the GT-R GT-3 racing car, which gives a 20% boost in engine responsiveness. This does not increase the Nismo’s speed; rather, it sharpens the throttle response. The GT-commitment R’s to pure performance applies to handle and track performance as well. It offers lightning-fast handling, incredible grip, and nimble maneuverability. The Nismo is priced like a supercar and is clearly track-ready, but it lacks the lightness of a supercar, which means it struggles in a slalom or around esse bends.
