The 2014 Nissan 370Z won’t see much in the way of performance upgrades for the new model year, but it will offer something that might make drivers even happier. That would be a drastic price reduction of $3,130 for the entry model, which now delivers exotic sports-car style, as well as performance, for a mere $29,990.
It’s the next step in a new pricing strategy from the brand and complements a price “repositioning” for seven core Nissan models earlier in the year. Naturally, it also extends to other models in the 2014 Nissan 370Z lineup as well. Along with the lower price on the coupe configured with a six-speed manual transmission, the cost of the Nissan 370Z with its seven-speed automatic falls to $31,290. Similarly, the entry point for the up-level Touring Coupe grade is $2,550 lower than for 2013. As a result, the MSRP of the manually transmissioned model drops to $35,270, and the automatic version to $36,570.
MSRPs for the convertible 2014 Nissan 370Z remain unchanged as follows:
- Nissan 370Z Roadster with 7AT: $41,470
- Nissan 370Z Roadster Touring with 6MT: $44,170
- Nissan 370Z Roadster Touring with 7AT: $45,470
The cost of the 2014 Nissan 370Z Coupe Nismo also stays the same, but here, along with the usual power boost over standard models, drivers will also enjoy a fresh appearance upgrade. The non-Nismo Nissan 370Z, of course, relies on the brand’s high-performance 3.7-liter V6 engine for 332 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque, and that’s been Nismo-fied to 350 horsepower and 276 lb.-ft. of twist in the most athletic member of the roster.
Then, for the 2014 model year, the car benefits from a new exterior color scheme that uses dark gray with red pinstripe accents for the body kit, including side mirrors and rear wing. Enhancing these changes, the interior of the NISMO Z car boasts a new steering wheel with Alcantra appointments and red accents.
The 2014 Nissan 370Z Nismo is priced from $43,020 and, like the rest of the 370Z lineup, is at dealerships now.
