Nissan’s Infiniti division introduced the G-Series in 1990. Having advanced through a number of iterations and redesigns, the Infiniti G Sedan series remains a popular choice for luxury buyers. The model was initially based on the Nissan Primera, later rebadged as the Nissan Skyline for export to the US and Canada. The current model is the fourth generation, and features a hardtop coupe convertible. These models are built on Nissan’s FM platform, the same platform on which the Nissan 370Z is based. It also shares components with the Infiniti M, Infiniti EX, and Infiniti FX. In August of 2013 Nissan announced that the Inifiniti G series was to be replaced by the Q50 in 2013, but are continuing to sell both models side-by-side through 2015. This is in direct response to the BMW 320i compact sedan, a similarly classed car that has seen price reductions in recent years. Two models of the Infiniti G37 will be produced: the G37 Sedan Journey, and the G37 Sedan AWD.
2015 Infiniti G37 Engine Specs & Mileage
The 2015 Infiniti G37 will feature Nissan’s 3.7-liter V6 powertrain, with both 7-speed automatic and manual transmissions offered. Owners and drivers, who enjoy the aggressive handling and smooth transmission action, have reviewed this combination favorably. The V6 delivers power to spare, making the G37 a favorite for fans of mid-sized sport luxury coupes. The Infiniti G37 is listed as earning an EPA-estimated 19mpg city and 27mpg highway, and although this is a bit low for cars in this class, the power of the G37 more than makes up for it. Most fuel-efficient mid-size sedans simply don’t measure up, and buyers looking for power and superior handling are able to overlook this shortcoming.
Some critics point to the Infiniti G37’s firm suspension as being a bit rough on unfinished roads, though this isn’t unexpected given the vehicles design, suspension, and size. Noise in the cabin can be distracting, as well. You won’t find a whisper-quiet, silky smooth drive in either of these models. Additionally, the 2013 G37 had a lower safety core than most luxury cars in its class, though that hasn’t seemed to deter its many fans.
2015 Infiniti G37 Features
If the 2014 model is any indication, the 2015 Infiniti G37 will feature luxury appointments throughout. Leather trimmed and heated seats, backup camera, USB and Bluetooth connections for phone and music, and zoned climate control are all standard. The back seats are a little tight, and perhaps best suited for children and small adults.
The 2015 Infiniti G37 will feature ABS brakes and a brake assist system, VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control), and an independent front wishbone suspension and rear suspension with stabilizer bar and coil links standard in both the Sedan Journey and Sedan AWD models. A light 3,628 lbs., the body-color bumpers and chrome window trim make for an aggressive stance. Fog lights, xenon headlights, and tinted glass throughout add a distinctive luxury finish to this handsome coupe.
2015 Infiniti G37 vs. 2014 Infiniti G37
The 2015 Infiniti G37 will feature the 3.7-liter V6 powertrain powertrains described earlier in this article. Nissan has dropped the 2013 Infiniti G37 Sport model from the lineup, offering the G37 Sedan Journey, and the G37 Sedan AWD only in 2014. These two models will continue to be offered alongside the Q series in 2015. MSRP for these models is expected to be in the range of $32,550 for the Sedan Journey, and $34,450 for the Sedan AWD.
Release Date of the 2015 Infiniti G37
Confirmation that the 2015 Infiniti G37 would be continued that year and sold alongside Nissan’s Q series was confirmed in August 2013. Infiniti will be releasing its new G37 line-up with lower pricing to compete with BMW’s offerings. New pricing went into effect on August 6, 2013, allowing plenty of time for buyers to compare notes against the rivals like the BMW 320i.
