There are many news being published about the new 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster car. One of the rumors is that the car is actually going to change its name and become a 350Z, in an attempt to make the car global. In fact the car is going to be global but no confirmation has been made about the name change. The model does get a redesign that we are expected to see next year and the premier is going to be in Japan with the US showcasing and release date following it soon after that.
What is interesting about this car is that it will have a variety of engine choices. The previous one was only offered with a Mercedes-Benz-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which is the same one found inside the Infiniti Q50. This time one engine variant is not going to be enough and we are happy to state that the 370Z roadster is making an effort to enhance its features and performance.
The aim for the newest model is that it is planned to become lighter, faster and cheaper. Making the car lighter can easily be done with the lightweight materials that are certainly going to make it to the car while the new engine options give us a performance boost and better specs but the price range may be the hardest part to fit in here. Here are the latest release date and price news that we managed to find out and in this review about the 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster.
The exterior design of the 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster is going to change a little bit. We are still getting a similar car compared to before but there are going to be certain updates that are going to add to its looks. We are actually expecting to receive a full stylistic revamp of the car and see it in much better light than before and it is all thanks to the confirmed open-top targa layout which the model is going to receive. This is going to topple the previous design and make the new one your favorite one when 370Z models are in question.
The changes are something that make a lot of sense for the model as the current version is essentially the same one that we have seen further back to 2002 when the car appeared. We agree that the brand called 370Z was revamped a few times and has received updates but we cannot say that those changes are something spectacular or segment revolutionary. If this car changes the name to 350Z moniker, the changes need to come and they should come in abundance. We are hoping to get an evolution of the car rather than anything else.
The interior of the car is going to follow the same type of redesign patter that the outside goes with to make the new 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster model. The car has already been around for a long time so it is already time to reshape and change everything around in a big way. This does not meant that the model is going to get rid of the look that made it poplar before, although some people think it should, but it is going to change those parts in an evolutionary way and make good use of them that way.
The cabin is going to be revamped and will mainly use premium materials and soft touch surfaces on the inside. The high grade offers that are going to be present here are going to match the ones seen in the top luxury cars. The technological update is going to be appropriate as it is going to follow the current trends and be a modern vehicle all-together.
An interesting picture is painted under the hood of the 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster model. In fact the engine from the previous model is going to make a comeback and the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder is still going to be used. But this engine option is going to be reworked as it is going to add an electric power source which is going to enable the powertrain to churn out a total of 211 horsepower, which also lowers the fuel consumption and increases the thrust for the car. Another option is the turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder which makes 402-horsepower. The secondary option combines a hybrid base technology and has an electronic part which enhances the power. The setup has not been confirmed yet but is something that we are increasingly looking forward to.

Release date and price
A vehicle like the 2017 Nissan 370Z Roadster is not going to come cheap so expect a price that comes around $60,000. The release date has been set for next year and the vehicle is expected to be offered around mid-2017. Another long awaited vehicle coming from Nissan is the 2017 Nissan GT-R model.
