Under the Hood
Powering the 2024 Nissan Z is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that puts out 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, all sent to the rear wheels. While many manufacturers have forgone the manual gearbox, I’m pleased to say that the Z comes standard with a 6-speed manual, although a 9-speed automatic is available. The Z will sprint to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds if you shift on your own – while the 9-speed automatic might not be as engaging, it is quicker, completing the same task in 4.3 seconds.
