2020 Nissan GT-R review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Nissan GT-R?

Nissan has earned a spot in the annals of all-time high-performance cars with its iconic GT-R. The current version is a 2+2 supercar that features all-wheel drive and a standard 565-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine with twin turbochargers. Track Edition and NISMO models are rated at 600 hp. The GT-R competes with the Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Corvette.

What’s New on the 2020 Nissan GT-R?

Nissan celebrates a half-century of the GT-R with the new 50th Anniversary Edition. Based on the Premium trim level, the 50th Anniversary Edition features heritage-inspired two-tone exteriors, a gray interior, a unique steering wheel and shifter, embossed seats and Alcantara trim. The Premium trim gets new 20-inch forged-aluminum wheels, while the Track Edition is now powered by the NISMO’s 600-hp engine and is fitted with a carbon-fiber roof. Other changes to the Track Edition and NISMO include new turbochargers, available carbon-ceramic brakes, revised suspension tuning and extra carbon-fiber parts.

What Features in the 2020 Nissan GT-R Are Most Important?

The muscular V-6 engine provides ample power, but the GT-R also has an impressive driver-adjustable adaptive suspension and responsive all-wheel-drive system that keep it well-behaved and tied down at high speeds. It features 20-inch wheels and massive brake rotors, plus all the luxury, convenience and connectivity features you’d expect from a car this price. There’s even a backseat big enough to carry adults in a pinch.

Should I Buy the 2020 Nissan GT-R?

Buying a GT-R puts you in an exclusive ownership club; Nissan sold only 538 in the U.S. in 2018. Porsche sold nearly 10,000 911s and Chevrolet nearly 19,000 Corvettes, making the Nissan’s rivals high-volume by comparison. The GT-R has the chops to run with its competitors, but it’s the same basic car that debuted in the U.S. for 2009, making it an old-timer compared with its closest rivals.

GTR Unbiased Opinion

The good. - Great sports car! - Holds its value (Avrg. 5yr. old GTR w/20k mi. ~$70K) - Amazing engine and trannie "quality". -- Stock can roughly yield 485hp to the ground -- FBO/e85 can get you north of 600hp/600tq -- Stock engine/trannie can only handle 600hp/600tq -- Most tuners will limit the tune, unless internals are upgraded - Ride is as smooth as any other serious sport car (tight suspension) The Bad and the Ugly - Outdated, 12yr old technology all around -- DCT gear change is considered laggy using today's standards -- Noisy DCT, more than normal -- Break rotors tend to crack, just like the sides on the leather seats - $100K+ car with a budget customer service -- Nissan is a budget car company, so don't expect BMW level service -- Nissan experience (all the used car sales tactics in the book) -- Nissan managers will "typically" use the GTR as their toy car and try to sell it to you like new with miles -- Fluid changes are better done by you or someone you trust Recommendation: - Buy a used, low miles GTR with good history (may save $30K) - Or buy a heavily discounted new GTRs - If you modify it, you may risk voiding warranty if its found tune related; mod it once warr. is expired.

Don’t not buy this car.

All I had is problems with this car in all honesty. I have 4,300 miles on a 2019 GTR and the engine in now blown and they need 3-6 months to fix it. Also when buying a GTR remember that u won’t get a GTR loaner but only something like a maxima unlike if u went to Porsche if u bought a 911 u would get a 911 loaner. Spend your 100-130k elsewhere. The executives from Nissan that help with consumer affairs do not answer your phone calls and do not call back quickly. Nissan does not appreciate the business of people spending over 100k from what I experience personally.
