History of Infiniti
Infiniti is a luxury brand of automobile created by Nissan to compete with its Japanese competitors, Toyota and Honda. Toyota had begun to make a mark with the Lexus brand, while Honda’s Acura was making a name for itself. November 1989 marked the beginning of Nissan’s ride through the luxury car market, but it wasn’t easy. It took Infiniti a while a find its identity. They started slow, with only 51 dealers around the world. Years later, there are more than 230 showrooms.
American audiences did not initially spark to the Infiniti. The reasons for this lackluster debut in the United States may have had something to do with the power of advertising. Some speculate that the “relaxed” and “zen” feeling inspired by the original advertisements failed to communicate the power and attractiveness of the vehicle itself. When those ads were pulled and a new program was designed around the performance capabilities of the new Infiniti, the market improved and the Infiniti had found its niche.
For many years, the luxury car market was dominated by American builders such as Ford, Chrysler and General Motors. The term “import” generally was synonymous with “German” with the BMW leading the way. Still, Infiniti has managed to compete in this marketplace by appealing to the drivers who want more sport in their luxury vehicles. For instance, by placing the Infiniti on a Nissan FM platform and moving the engine behind the front wheels, the company managed to solve a few performance issues that had plagued American luxury car enthusiasts. They now had better acceleration, braking and overall handling.
The original Infiniti models were the M30 coupe and the Q45 sedan. However, Nissan, through its Infiniti brand, beat all of its Japanese competitors by creating the first luxury SUV for American markets. They began exporting the QX4 before anyone else had a similar vehicle ready for export. The most impressive Infinity, the G37 Coupe, has a 3.7L V6 that offers 330 horsepower with only a 112-inch wheelbase. That was in 2007, and the new models are just as impressive.
Infiniti G Coupe
The Infiniti G Coupe comes in several varieties, including the basic G37 Coupe, the G37 Coupe Journey, the G37x Coupe AWD and the G37 Coupe 6MT, ranging in price from $37,600 to $43,800, respectively. Each of the models offers a 3.7L, 24-valve V6 engine with an aluminum-alloy block and heads and double overhead cams, and Continuously Variable Timing Control Systems. They have an impressive 330 horsepower at 7000 rpms, and torque of 270 lb-ft at 5200 rpm. The first three models also have an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and Drive Sport mode, but this is not available on the high end model.
The G37 Coupe, the G37 Coupe Journey, and the G37 Coupe 6MT all have rear-wheel drive, while the G37x Coupe has all-wheel drive, as indicated. The three lower end models all come standard with a 6-speaker audio system with AM/FM/CD and MP3 capability and a speed sensitive volume control. The highest end model, however, comes standard with the Infiniti on Wheels® by Bose® 11-speaker Premium Audio System. The three higher end models also have a USB port for iPod® interface.
Infiniti IPL G Coupe
The IPL G Coupe from Infiniti is a premier luxury coupe that offers comfort, styling, speed and power in two grades: The IPL G Coupe, starting at $51,250, and the IPL G Coupe 6MT, starting at $49,350. Both models come standard with a 3.7L, 24-valve V6 with IPL engine covers, aluminum-alloy blocks and head, and low-friction coated pistons. They also have IPL-tuned high-flow dual exhaust, double overhead cams, Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control Systems (CVTCS) that optimizes the opening of intake and exhaust valves. Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) improves performance and fuel efficiency in both models as well. With identical engines, both vehicle are capable of 348 horsepower at 7400 rpm and a torque of 276 lb-ft at 5200 rpm.
The IPL G Coupe has an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control® and Drive Sport (DS) mode. Both cars are rear-wheel drive. The standard exterior features are the same on both cars, including automatic on/off High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights, front fog lights, power sliding tinted glass moon roofs with one-touch open/close, heated outside mirrors and rear-window defrosters with indicator light and timer.
Infiniti G37 Convertible
The Infinity G37 Convertible is available in two forms: the standard G37 Convertible (starting at $46,400) and the G37 Convertible Sport 6MT (starting at $50,850). Like their non-convertible counterparts, these cars come standard with 3.7L, 24-valve V6 engines, with aluminum-alloy blocks and heads, resin coated pistons, and double overhead cams. They also have Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control Systems (CVTCS) and Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®) which improves performance, emissions and fuel efficiency. Even so, the EPA estimated fuel economy on these luxury sports cars hover around 17 mpg gallon in town and only 25 mpg on the highway.
There are a couple of interesting features in these convertibles, available on both models. They both come with Infiniti Intelligent Key with an illuminated push button ignition. Provided the key with within a specific range, you don’t actually have to put it in the ignition. The power windows feature is also fun. Pulling upward on the two front switches will automatically raise all the windows in the car.
The difference in the two models comes from the available standard features. For instance, the lower end model comes with an impressive 6-speaker audio system with AM/FM/CD and MP3 playback capability. However, the higher end model comes standard with the Bose® 13-speaker Open Air Sound system that includes Bose® Personal® front seat speakers with noise adaptor technology.
Infiniti M Class
The M Class from Infiniti has a wide variety of selections. The M37 starts at $47,700, but it is also available in an All-Wheel Drive model for $49,850. The M Hybrid starts at $53,700 and offers better fuel efficiency. Finally, the M56, at $59,100 and the M56x AWD at $61,600, round out the pack.
The immediate differences can be found under the hood. The first two models listed, the M37 and the M37 AWD both come standard with a 3.7L 24-valve engine with aluminum-alloy blocks and heads and low-friction coated pistons. The Hybrid design offers a 3.5L V6 with Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid™ that uses a lithium-ion battery and 50 kW electric motor. The higher-end M56 and M56 AWD have a larger 5.6L, 32-valve V8 with aluminum-alloy blocks and heads and low friction pistons. All models feature a high-flow tuned induction system, however. The Hybrid model gets the best fuel economy, of course, with 27 mph in town and 32 mpg on the highway. The other models range from 18/26 to 16/23, comparatively.
With safety of paramount concern to most drivers, all models of the M Class from Infiniti have the Infiniti Advanced Airbag System (AABS) with occupant-detection, side impact supplemental airbags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags in the front and rear compartments, as well as Zone body construction with reinforced passenger compartments. They also have rear and front crumple zones.
Infiniti EX Class
The Infiniti EX class is available in the EX35, EX35 AWD, EX35 Journey, and EX35 Journey AWD models. The prices for each model range from $35,600 to $39,300, respectively. Each model comes with the same engine capable of a whopping 297 horsepower and fuel efficiency of 17 mpg in town and 24 mpg on the highway.
Each of these cars comes with the standard 6-speaker audio system including AM/FM/CD and MP3 playback capability. They also have speed-sensitive volume control as a standard feature. However, the EX35 Journey and the EX35 Journey AWD have available upgrades to the Bose® 11-speaker Premium Audio system. Streaming audio with Bluetooth® wireless technology is only available in the EX35 Journey and the EX35 Journey AWD as an upgrade. However, the Bluetooth® Hands-free phone system is a standard feature in the EX35 models.

Infiniti FX Class
Infiniti offers three vehicles in the FX class: The FX35, the FX35 AWD, and the FX50 AWD. The FX35 and the FX35 AWD models both come standard with a 3.5L 24-valve engine with aluminum-alloy blocks and head. The FX50 AWD, however, comes with a much larger 5.0L 32 valve V8. The FX35 models get slightly better fuel efficiency with 16/23 mpg and 16/21 mpg, respectively. The FX50, due to its more powerful engine, only gets 14/20 mpg.
All three models come with an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). The Manual shift mode offers a sequentially selectable manual gearshift and a feature known as Downshift Rev Matching (DRM). The basic FX35 is rear-wheel drive, while the other two models have intelligent all-wheel drive.
All three of these cars have the Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) including dual-stage front supplemental bags with seat-belt sensors and an occupant detection feature. The bags adjust their inflation rate depending upon the severity of the accident and whether the occupant is wearing a seat belt. Each model also has side-mount airbags for added safety. The second row seats in all models offer 3-point seat belt restraints. If you have children, these vehicles offer a little something extra. The designers have evaluated various child restraint seats after installing them in all Infiniti vehicles. Infiniti offers suggestions, guidelines and instructions on the proper use of car seats through their Snug Kids program.
Infiniti QX Class
Infiniti offers two vehicles in the QX class. The vehicles are similar except that the QX56 is a two wheel drive and the aptly-named QX56 4WD is a four-wheel drive. They are priced very closely with the two-wheel drive model coming in at $58,700 and the off-road version following at $61,800. Both vehicles offer a 5.6L 32-valve V8 engine with aluminum-alloy blocs and head and dry, film-coated pistons. They also share double overhead cams, Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) and Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL®). The Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control Systems (CVTCS) in each truck optimizes the opening intake and exhaust of the valves. The vehicles have an impressive 400 horsepower under the hood. Both vehicles have the same interior features, including Infiniti Intelligent Key with Illuminated Push Button Ignition, Tri-zone Automatic Temperature Control, Rear-seat heater ducts under the front seats, overhead sunglass storage, and 9 cup-holders and 4 bottle-holders.
The QX class also features the Infiniti Advanced Airbag System (AABS) that includes dual-stage front supplemental airbags designed to modify behavior based upon occupancy, speed and whether a passenger or driver is wearing their seatbelt. The QX class has front-seat Active Head Restraints (AHR) designed to prevent whiplash injury, as well as the LATCH system that helps to simplify the process of properly installing a child restraint seat.
