The iconic 2009 Nissan 370Z, the first full redesign of the Nissan Z(R) since its reintroduction as a 2003 model, is scheduled to go on sale in North America in January 2009.
Press- Nearly every piece and component of the current Nissan 350Z has been rethought or redesigned resulting in a more refined, more powerful, better handling 370Z – a shorter wheelbase, greater use of lightweight body materials, larger 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL), a new 7-speed automatic transmission, a world’s first synchronized downshift rev matching system for the 6-speed manual transmission, a new high quality interior design and new available technology features.
The 2009 370Z has a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP)* of $29,990, $280 less than a comparably priced 2008 350Z Enthusiast model
The 2009 Nissan cube provides the utility and dependability consumers expect in a small car wrapped in a package that is anything but square. It’s unique, non-traditional design features an asymmetrical body, a stout “bulldog-like” stance, wide doors, a large greenhouse with wraparound rear window, and a refrigerator-style rear door. Capable of seating up to five passengers, the new cube offers a plethora of innovative storage solutions ideal for storing cell phones, MP3 players and other personal items. To accommodate its occupants, the new cube provides comfortable front seating with a three-position sliding, reclining theater-style rear seat.
The front-wheel-drive cube is available with a standard 122-horsepower 1.8-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine and a choice of Nissan’s advanced, smooth- shifting Xtronic CVT(TM) (Continuously Variable Transmission) or 6-speed manual transmission. Fuel efficiency is expected to be over 30 mpg highway with the CVT transmission (actual EPA estimates not available at this time). Cube is offered in three well-equipped models: cube 1.8, cube 1.8 S and cube 1.8 SL. A long list of safety features are standard on the cube, including six air bags. Accessories will also be offered, allowing cube owners to personalize their vehicles to reflect their own tastes and needs.
