The new 2022 Nissan GT-R exemplifies the power, performance, and technology that are associated with the Nissan brand. Equipped with a monstrous 600 horsepower paired with seamless handling ability, the 2022 Nissan GT-R enables drivers to take the wheel of a true supercar. Nissan will continue to push the limits of the GT-R model, as they are working towards producing a fully electric GT-R model that will likely outperform current combustion engine models. Now, let’s take a closer look at the specifications for the new 2022 Nissan GT-R.The trims for the 2022 Nissan GT-Rwill include the Premium, Track Edition, and NISMO, as well as a NISMO Special Edition model. 

Although Nissan has not clarified how many models will be made available in North America, the 2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO Special Edition will be sold in limited numbers and will be uniquely identified by a special Stealth Gray exterior paint, carbon fiber hood, and 20-inch black wheels with red accents. The 2022 Nissan GT-R packs immense power with a twin-turbocharged and an intercooled 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that generates 565 horsepower and 467 lb./ft torque. Track Edition and NISMO models for the 2022 Nissan GT-R will benefit from a tuned-up engine that pumps out 600 horsepower and 481 lb-ft of torque. The 2022 Nissan GT-R NISMO is capable of propelling from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds, all while maintaining a quiet interior cabin thanks to active sound cancellation. 

All of this power is routed to an all-wheel-drive six-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting mode giving drivers the ultimate experience. The 2022 Nissan GT-R’s responsive steering, strong structure, and flexible suspension will leave even the most casual of drivers in a state of total bliss. The interior of the 2022 Nissan GT-R features leather and suede upholstery, a Premium Bose audio system, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats. In addition, the 2022 Nissan GT-R is equipped with an 8.0-inch touchscreen with built-in navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android capability. 

After 14 years of the iconic Nissan GT-R roaring through the streets, the GT-R will soon roll by with a much softer tone than we have been accustomed to for over a decade. Nissan has planned for several years to transition towards a fully electric lineup, including the esteemed GT-R. Nissan CEO Makota Uchida stated that the company is aiming to engineer an electric engine for future models that mimics, or exceeds, the power of the current twin-turbocharged V6 engine in the 2022 GT-R. As the automotive industry makes the move towards the electric era, Nissan hopes to set the standard for electric supercars. The 2022 Nissan GT-R provides explosive power and remarkable handling; however, drivers should expect an enhanced electric Nissan GT-R sooner rather than later.
