New Z nearly $16,000 more than the last Z
400 hp 3.0L V6 comes standard
That’s a massive increase over the outgoing Z. The last Canadian Z was the 2020 370Z coupe which started from $30,498 or $48,998 for the Nismo version.
The base-model 2023 Nissan Z is the 6MT Coupe in Sport trim. Like the rest of the line, it gets a 400 hp 3.0L twin-turbo V6 for that starting price. Opting for the nine-speed auto will boost the price to $47,998.
Nissan will also offer Performance trim cars, which include Bose audio, a limited-slip rear differential, upgraded brakes and sports exhaust, as well as 19-inch Rays alloy wheels. This one is $58,498 with the stick or $59,998 with the automatic.
Top of the line is Proto Spec, a limited-production model with yellow callipers, bronze wheels, unique leather seats, and special interior stitching. The Z Proto rings in at $64,248 with a stick or $65,748 with the auto. All prices are before $1,950 destination.
While the car is still quite a bit more expensive than before, let’s look at what it offers. Like nearly double the horsepower of the $32k Toyota GR86 and still more power than the nearly $70k Supra. It’s priced much closer to V8 versions of the Ford Mustang, a car that should offer similar performance and deliver it in a very different fashion.
Nissan says 2023 Z models will show up at dealers this summer.
