Nissan just announced pricing for the 2019 370Z. Surprise, surprise – the MSRP hasn’t changed.
How long is too long without a major redesign. It’s a question some may ask after they realize cars like the 2019 Nissan 370Z are indeed still in production. That’s not to say the Nissan 370Z is a terrible sports car. Quite the contrary – it’s the culmination of nearly 50 years and six generations of Z-cars. Although Nissan did update the 370Z a few times over its lifespan, it still largely resembles the car that debuted in 2009. That’s nearly a decade ago, so to say the car is an old dog is an understatement.
Despite that, the 2019 Nissan 370Z soldiers on with no major changes. Last year, Nissan slightly revised the 370Z coupe with a dark headlight treatment, tinted rear lights, a darkened rear fascia and new 19-inch alloy wheels. Now, Nissan has added two more colors for “Heritage Edition” models: Deep Blue Pearl and Pearl White.
All Nissan 370Z models are powered by the same 3.7-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine in the base, Heritage Edition, Sport and Sport Touring Coupe and all Roadster trims pushes out 332 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The NISMO model is more powerful, putting out 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque. NISMOs also feature sport-tuned suspension and aerodynamic tweaks over standard versions.
Pricing remains exactly the same for the 2019 Nissan 370Z as the 2018 model year. That means the coupe starts at $29,990 with a six-speed manual transmission, rising to $39,390 for the Sport Touring with an automatic. The NISMO, which features that more powerful engine, handling enhancements and a Viscous Limited-Slip Differential rings in at $45,690 for the manual, or $47,090 for the automatic. Nissan also dropped the “NISMO Tech” name used during the 2018 model year.
Roadster models are only available with the seven-speed automatic transmission. Prices kick off at $41,820 for the base model and rise all the way to $49,400 for the Sport Touring trim.

Do you think Nissan should continue building the 370Z, or is it time for an update? Perhaps Nissan should just discontinue the model? Last year, the company sold just 4,614 examples, nearly one-third of what it shifted after the 370Z first emerged in 2009.
