Without any doubt, the GT-R is one of the most iconic sports cars in the last couple of decades. However, the year of 2007 was a long time ago and despite all the updates, this model has become old. While the powertrain department continues to impress, the car doesn’t feel that fresh in other aspects. The interior is outdated, as well as the infotainment system and many other tech goodies. Moreover, an advanced safety system aren’t numerous, which all questions the price of this supercar. Therefore, a complete overhaul seems like a logical question. At this point, it looks like the current generation will remain in production for some more time, but it also looks like we could see some updates for the 2022 Nissan GT-R. At this point, everything is in the domain of speculations, so keep the following paragraphs with a reserve.
Why update and not a full-redesign for 2022 Nissan GT-R?
Things aren’t that simple to explain, but the main reason for such expectations lays in the fact that things aren’t that great in the alliance these days. In the past couple of years, we’ve seen a lot of troubles, including affairs, sales and profit dropping and more. All this cuts the funds that need to be pretty big for a sports car. Moreover, we are pretty sure that the next GT-R isn’t rated too high on the company’s priority list. We presume the company will focus on electric models fist, while there are also many “regular” models that need a complete redesign in the near future. All this leads us to the conclusion that the current generation will remain for some more time.
2022 Nissan GT-R Update
If you wonder what to expect from the next update, we presume that the changes would be pretty straightforward. This means that the company probably won’t bother with some brand-new technologies and similar things. We will see typical upgrades and updates. In terms of mechanics, this means more engine power, use of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials, suspension upgrades etc. In terms of aesthetics, we may expect goodies like new wheels, slight fascias revisions, color options etc. On the inside, the 2022 Nissan GT-R may get a new infotainment system, slight dashboard revisions, new standard features etc.
When to expect full redesign?
While the 2022 Nissan GT-R is about to come with updates, a full redesign probably won’t happen before 2025. At the time the original GT-R arrived, it was a real technological jewel. We have no doubt this will be the case with the next generation as well. It’s hard to talk about the details at this moment, but some things seem pretty certain. By 2025, we are pretty sure that electrification will be a pretty common thing among supercars and it definitely wouldn’t be a surprise to see new GT-R with all-electric layout, with torque vectoring and more. The first concepts of such a vehicle may appear in a couple of years.
Meanwhile, the current generation will carry on in the same way. The 2022 Nissan GT-R could bring updates, but things will essentially remain the same. Therefore, the current generation will march on with familiar characteristics, while we also don’t expect to see bigger changes in prices. The current model starts around 113.000 dollars, while the most expensive Nismo models start at 210.000 dollars.
