    The 2011 Nissan GT-R lineup shrinks and
    all models gets a slightly revised suspension.
    Long known as the Skyline GT-R in Japan,
    the GT-R is Nissan's flagship sports car.

    It comes in a single Premium trim level.
    The Base has been discontinued.
    The sole engine is a 485-horsepower turbocharged 3.8-liter V6.

    It teams with a 6-speed dual-clutch
    automated-manual transmission
    that behaves much like an automatic.

    It also includes steering-wheel shift paddles for manual operation.
    All-wheel drive is standard as are a sport suspension and
    20-inch wheels with run-flat tires.


    Available safety features include ABS, traction control,
    antiskid system, curtain-side airbags, and front-side airbags.

    A navigation system with hard drive for
    storing digital-music files is standard.

    New for 2011, the navigation system includes
    real-time traffic and weather alerts.

    Heated front seats are standard.
    A no-charge Cold Weather Package
    includes special coolant and specific wheels and tires.



    Apparently, the 2011 GT-R will have a base price of $84,060. They're only offering it in the Premium version, doing away with the base version all together, which seems like a pretty nice move. Pricing it at $84,060 also means that it is just around $1000 more expensive than its 2010 counterpart. Nissan also praises the new ride comfort which comes as result of improved rear bushes and a retuned suspension system.

    Beyond this, the 2011 Nissan GT-R has improved cooling systems, which is always nice in any vehicle. The center caps on the wheels have a slightly darker tone to them, and the front and rear fascias are now being double-coated for durability and appearance.

    A few other new touches are:

    -Higher quality headlights with an automatic On/Off function
    -Speed sensitive windshield wipers
    -iPod interface
    -Bluetooth technology for streaming audio and DVD playback functionality
    -An upgraded Nav system that uses NavWeather and XM Nav Traffic

    All of these features seem like pretty solid upgrades and come out to be worth the extra $1000 on the price tag, so far as I'm concerned. Will be interesting to see and feel the new features in person once the 2011 GT-R hits dealer lots.
