2011 Infiniti G25 Hits Dealerships in September
With a smaller yet more fuel-efficient engine (2.5-liter V6) than its G37 cousins, the DOHC 24-valve V6 pumps out 218 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque, versus the G37's 328 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque.
The G25 comes standard with a 7-speed automatic transmission and will be available in both rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, and three trim levels: G25, G25 Journey and G25x AWD.
The G25 starts with a MSRP of $30,950 (before tax, title, and destination fees).
The new 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan shares a bloodline with the G37 (same dynamic exterior, interior and chassis) but has its own extensive list of standard equipment: 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 and much more.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
