However, this 2017 Nissan GT-R model gives consumers just a bit more of what they admire about the GTR. The ride is fast but, it hasn’t really been famed for its comfortable interior. It has been about the speed, everything and always. The bumper and front grill have been upgraded to give it a more meaner look now. According to Nissan, this is supposed to increase downforce and aerodynamics, however the drag coefficient is still 0.26.
The real gem in the new 2017 Nissan GT-R model is, of course, the interior. The instrument cluster is wrapped in leather and the center stack and the dashboard are brand new. A Display Command controller can now be found in the center console as the touch screen grows by an inch. The six-speed dual-clutch transmission that previously could be found in the column is now relocated to the steering wheel.

The best part of the 2017 Nissan GT-R when it comes to the speed are the extra 20 HP and 4 lb-ft of torque all coming out of that twin-turbo 3.8-liter V6. The individual timing control for each cylinder along with the extra boost give it a peak output of 565 HP. The 467 lb-ft of torque may not reach a higher peak but, Nissan claims that mid to high rpm range has been improved. When it comes to the chassis, the people at Nissan say that it has been stiffened with some tweaks on the suspension. Don’t get confused here though; this is not a new 2017 Nissan GT-R but, only a refreshed one. The new 2017 Nissan GT-R is expected to hit us by 2020.
As the power increase sounds nice, it definitely isn’t easy and here is a video to remind you of that- in case you have forgotten. 2017 Nissan GT-R video below!
