Feature Focus: Whatís New in the 2017 Nissan GT-R



Quote:
Cars, like dogs, age at an accelerated rate compared to us humans.

Itís a sad fact, but manís best friend isnít as long-lived as we are. And so it goes with cars, which get purulent and start growing fuzz after being left without updates for just a couple model years.

After nearly a decade on the market, youíd think Nissanís GT-R should be covered in mold and ready for the compost heap, but thatís not the case. Even though it has achieved senior citizen status in car years, this is a machine has withstood the test of time thanks to an unending stream of improvements.

Like storing veggies in the crisper drawer, Nissan has made a slew of significant enhancements for the 2017 model year to keep this car fresh.

As before, a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 ignites the firestorm. For 2017, it delivers 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. Compared to 2016, those figures have increased by 20 and 4, respectively. You can thank tweaked ignition timing and extra boost for those gains.

Once again, a six-speed dual-clutch automatic is the sole transmission, which isnít news, but the tuning is. This gearbox has been reworked to deliver smoother shifts and quieter operation. I can confirm thatís it quite civilized, though it will still bang through the gears when you want it to.

You know I hear that not every single change when a car gets "upgraded" can be seen as a good change. But it's good to see that cars like the GT-R aren't being forgotten. At least it's getting improvements rather than left as what it was when it originally drew stellar sales figures.
