Infinity announced a new addition to the Infinity G line family, the G25 Sedan, which features a 2.5 liter V6 engine. It’s scheduled to go on sale at Infiniti retailers nationwide in September, joining the Infiniti G37 Sedan, G37 Coupe, and G37 convertible (side note: the G37 replaced the ever popular G35). The MSRP starts out at about $31,000.
“With the new G25 Sedan, we’re broadening the appeal of the G Line with a model designed to provide an additional choice for buyers looking for a true luxury sedan, but who might not need the higher levels of performance provided by out larger engine0equipped G37 models.” Said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore, speaking at a media event at the 60th annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The new 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan shares the same dynamic exterior, interior, and chassis as the G37, but with a smaller displacement engine. The 2.5-liter DOHC 24-value V6 produces 218 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, versus the G37’s 3.7-liter DOHC 24-valve V6’s 328 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The G25 Sedan comes with a standard 7-speed auto transmission and is available in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Three models are offered: the G25 Sedan, G25 Sedan Journey, and G25x Sedan AWD.
The G25 Sedan’s extensive list of standard equipment includes leather-appointed seating, Shodo aluminum interior trim, 8-way power driver’s seat and 4-way power front passenger’s seat, Automatic Temperature Control, premium audio system with six speakers, XM Satellite Radio (of course, the subscription is required and is not included), and much more. Other standard features go fro 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, HID Xenon headlights, 4-wheel Anti-lock Disc Braking System, Vehicle Dynamic Control, and Traction Control System. The G25 Journey models adds Rearview Monitor, heated front seats, heated outside mirrors, auto on/off headlights, Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control and more.
Poore said “Even though the G25 is the entry vehicle into the G line, it offers an impressive array of luxury features- from leather appointed seats to satellite radio”. And Poore was so right…
