Feature Focus: What’s New in the 2017 Nissan GT-R

Cars, like dogs, age at an accelerated rate compared to us humans.

It’s a sad fact, but man’s best friend isn’t as long-lived as we are. And so it goes with cars, which get purulent and start growing fuzz after being left without updates for just a couple model years.

After nearly a decade on the market, you’d think Nissan’s GT-R should be covered in mold and ready for the compost heap, but that’s not the case. Even though it has achieved senior citizen status in car years, this is a machine has withstood the test of time thanks to an unending stream of improvements.

Like storing veggies in the crisper drawer, Nissan has made a slew of significant enhancements for the 2017 model year to keep this car fresh.

As before, a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 ignites the firestorm. For 2017, it delivers 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. Compared to 2016, those figures have increased by 20 and 4, respectively. You can thank tweaked ignition timing and extra boost for those gains.

Once again, a six-speed dual-clutch automatic is the sole transmission, which isn’t news, but the tuning is. This gearbox has been reworked to deliver smoother shifts and quieter operation. I can confirm that’s it quite civilized, though it will still bang through the gears when you want it to.
