2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo gets new automatic transmission, navigation

Nissan will expand its 370Z Nismo package for 2015 with the first offering of an automatic transmission and an onboard navigation system.

The company unveiled the enhanced model this afternoon to hundreds of consumers gathered in Fontana Dam, N.C., for Nissan’s annual ZDAYZ performance car event.

The ’15 model, which goes on sale in July, will receive a seven-speed automatic transmission and a new tech package that includes a navigation system. Nissan has not released pricing on the new model. The 2014 370Z Nismo sells for $43,830, compared with $30,800 for a base 370Z, including destination charges.

Nissan refers to the Nismo version as the “highest expression” of its iconic sports car. The automaker is also on a campaign to expand U.S. sales of Nismo models, which feature racing-oriented performance components, body features and interior styling cues.

The new model also gets restyled front and rear fascia and body trim that give the Z greater resemblance to Nissan’s higher-end performance car, the GT-R.
