2020 Nissan GT-R: A Trim Comparison
The Nissan GT-R is more than a powerful engine, though it does have plenty of horsepower to satiate the speediest of demons. It’s also a high-tech dynamo that will blow away the competition.
Available Nissan GT-R Trims
Here, we examine each of the available trims, including the all-new 50th Anniversary edition. Let’s take a closer look!
The 2020 Nissan GT-R Premium starts at $113,540 and comes with a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged 24-valve V-6 engine. This beast is capable of 565 horsepower and takes advantage of a Premium Midship platform design for balance. The dual-clutch six-speed transmission has three driver-selectable modes: normal, R-mode, and save. To help the driver maintain control, this trim of the Nissan GT-R features an electric all-wheel-drive system. It can provide all available torque to the rear wheels or can send 50% the front wheels, when necessary.
The GT-R Premium trim has a unique vehicle dynamic control system with three driver-selectable modes. It’s designed unlike any other stability control system on the road because it adjusts engine speed and applies braking to the appropriate wheel when it senses oversteering or understeering. This helps keep drivers snugly on the road during less than ideal weather conditions. The titanium exhaust also has exhaust sound control.
For convenience, it has a configurable multi-function display system. Additionally, drivers will find a rearview monitor, 11 Bose speakers, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and active noise cancellation. The vehicle’s infotainment system features an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation features, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD radio, and lastly, satellite radio.
The 50th Anniversary Edition of the GT-R features a restyled interior with a steering wheel and shift knob. Leather seats are embroidered with a special 50th Anniversary logo, plus there’s an Alcantara headliner. Additionally, you’ll get your choice of three two-paint schemes: Bayside Blue with white stripes, Pearl White with Red stripes and Super Silver with white stripes. Pricing starts at $123,040.
The Track Edition of the GT-R has a starting price of $145,540. It is the first trim to feature the NISMO-tuned 600-horsepower, 3.8-liter high-capacity engine. Interior features include racing-inspired Recaro front seats, wider fenders, and carbon fiber components for reduced weight. For an additional $15K, you can get high-performance carbon ceramic brakes.
The 2020 Nissan GT-R NISMO starts at $210,740. This trim comes with the NISMO-tuned 600-horsepower, 3.8-liter high capacity engine that can be found in the GT-R Track Edition. This trim pairs NISMO black 20-inch super-lightweight Rays wheels from the previous trim with the addition of a specific NISMO aerodynamic body design. The carbon-fiber front and rear fascia allow this vehicle to attain top speeds without any issues.
The inside is just as sleek with a red and black interior, plus the tachometer receives a major upgrade. This specially designed and badged instrument gives the driver a clear and detailed view of the engine’s performance. The NISMO Recaro leather-appointed front seats are lined with comfortable synthetic suede inserts and help support your body through even the strongest of g-forces during turns.
Other features offered in the NISMO are an Alcantara leather-wrapped steering wheel and carbon fiber accents for reduced vehicle weight.
