Nissan GT-R sees big price bump for 2020 model year

The base price of the GT-R is now north of $115k.

Nissan has announced pricing for its 2020 GT-R sports car. Although only moderately revised, the 2020 GT-R sees a significant price bump across the board.

For the 2020 model year Nissan is doing away with the entry-level Pure trim, leaving the Premium tier as the entry-point into the GT-R lineup. As a result, the base price of the GT-R has ballooned from $99,990 to $113,540. In an apples-to-apples comparison, the 2020 GT-R Premium is $3,000 more than last year's Premium model. However, you do at least get a couple of upgrades for your money -- the 2020 GT-R Premium benefits from revised turbos and new-look 20-inch Rays wheels.

New for 2020 is a 50th Anniversary Edition for the GT-R. Intended to celebrate 50-years of GT-R, the special edition package is available in three "heritage-era” two-tone exterior paint combinations. The 50th Anniversary Edition is optional on the GT-R Premium and carries an MSRP of $8,500, bringing the total package to $122,040.

The track-focused 2020 GT-R Track Edition will hit dealer lots on August 25 with a base price of $145,540 -- a whopping 17-grand more than last year. If you want to pay even more for your GT-R Track Edition, you can opt for the available carbon ceramic disc brake package.

The range-topping 2020 GT-R NISMO -- set to go on sale on July 12 -- will carry a base MSRP of $210,740. Keeping with the ongoing theme, that's more than the $175,540 Nissan charged for the GT-R NISMO last year. However, the NISMO is the most updated GT-R of the bunch, featuring turbochargers from the GT3 race car, carbon fiber roof and hood and standard carbon ceramic brakes.

All pricing excludes a mandatory $1,695 destination fee.
