A new name, but not a brand-new engine. You’ll notice it’s the most common thing you’ll see in the 2023 Z. Instead of a brand-new design, ground-up overhaul with a brand new platform, Nissan put a coat of new-fangled components, parts for the powertrain as well as infotainment technologies over the 11-year-old skeleton of the old 370Z. There’s also 350Z DNA circulating in the new tank, especially considering that the FM platform dates back to the Z’s introduction to market in the U.S. market in 2002. It’s back to the V-6.

It’s the same Jatco nine-speed that’s on the new Nissan Frontier, albeit with its high-performance software, and will be superior and more efficient than the old 370Z’s seven-speed auto. Other parts of the drivetrain are familiar: the differential, carbon-composite driveshaft, and axles come from the 370Z as well. It’s not surprising, considering that the new Z isn’t structurally different from the previous car aside from the improvements in rigidity, particularly in the rear hatch. Suspension mount points, driveline locations as well as the 100.4-inch wheelbase share a common space with the 370Z.
