Pricing for the 2010 Nissan 370Z Coupe, which is currently on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide, has been released. Nissan North America, Inc. (NNA) said that the 2010 370Z Coupe is available in two well-equipped models: 370Z and 370Z Touring and in a special edition NISMO 370Z.
Pricing has been kept under $30,000, with a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (M.S.R.P.) of US$29,990 for the 370Z Coupe with 6-speed manual transmission.
In spring 2010, a limited edition 40th Anniversary Package will be presented. To celebrate 40 years of the iconic Z, Nissan is offering the vehicle with unique content and an exclusive exterior/interior color combination.
A new Nissan 370Z Roadster with fully automatic cloth convertible top will also be offered. All 2010 370Z Coupes come with a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) and choice of 6-speed manual transmission with an available SynchroRev Match synchronized downshift rev matching system or a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The 2009 model year went for a total redesign but for the 2010 370Z, Nissan went for the following modifications: an enhanced navigation system, the addition of heated mirrors and in-cabin microfilter, and one new exterior color (Black Cherry).
Poised to provide one of the best performances of its time, the 2010 version of the Nissan 370Z came equipped with a 3.7-liter VQ37VHR engine. This engine has high tolerance for stress: it can provide amazing power that can reach up to the maximum 7,000 rpm redline.
The engine also comes with Nissan’s Variable Valve Event and Lift technology. As a result of the redesign, 35% of the parts in the new engine are also new. True enough, the engine can generate a torque of 366 Nm, with a power rating of 331PS.
As for transmissions, buyers had two choices to look at. First, you have the manual transmission and gearbox, which accommodates up to the sixth gear. This new transmission features a synchronized down/up shift rev control system.
The first of its kind, this system now allows for smoother shifting between gears by automatically adjusting speed to the speed needed for each gear change. There’s no need to worry now about the exact timing when shifting between gears.
Pierre Loing, Nissan’s VP for Product Planning, hailed the new 370Z as expressing the real essence of the brand. He even compared it to the 240Z that came out 40 years earlier. With the 370Z, Loing added, Nissan now brings good performance to its customers at a price that promises excellent value to Nissan’s clients.
