CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Infiniti today revealed the full lineup of new advanced engines for its
Infiniti Q50 sports sedan at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, including
300-horsepower and 400-horsepower versions of the advanced 3.0-liter V6
twin turbo engines and a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine. The three
new engine-equipped Q50 models – designated the Q50 2.0t, Q50 3.0t and
Q50 Red Sport 400 – are on display at the country’s oldest and
best-attended auto show, along with the 2016 QX60 crossover and the
all-new QX30 premium active crossover. It is the first time all of these
new models have appeared together.

« We are completely transforming the Infiniti model lineup this year with
all-new models like the QX30 and Q60 sports coupe, major makeovers such
as the QX60, and cutting-edge powerplants like the Q50′s three all-new
turbocharged engines, » said Tony Gardina, regional vice president,
Infiniti North, Infiniti USA. « We can’t think of a better venue to
showcase our full-scale product renaissance than the Chicago Auto Show,
which attracts more than one million visitors annually. »

Public days for the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, held at McCormick Place, run
from Saturday, February 13 through Sunday, February 21.

The new compact, lightweight 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine is the most
advanced V6 engine that Infiniti has ever offered, striking an ideal
balance between drivability, efficiency, and performance. The new
VR-series engine will be first available in the Q50 Red Sport 400
beginning in early spring, followed by the 300-horsepower Q50 3.0t in
late spring.

The third new Q50 powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbo inline 4-cylinder,
producing 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Offered in
conjunction with Daimler and assembled at Infiniti’s engine plant in
Decherd, Tennessee, this engine is available in the Q50 2.0t model in
both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive and goes on sale later this winter.
It will be joined by a fourth Q50 powertrain choice, the Q50 Hybrid with
Infiniti’s proven 3.5-liter gasoline-electric hybrid system with a net
360 horsepower.

Along with the new Q50, other new Infiniti models expected to draw
consumer interest at the Chicago Auto Show include the redesigned QX60
luxury crossover, which adds to its already strong suite of advanced
safety technology with Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) with pedestrian
detection – a first for Infiniti and the brand’s exclusive Predictive
Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system. The new 2016 QX60 arrives in
Infiniti showrooms next month. Also on display is the all-new 2017
Infiniti QX30 premium active crossover. The QX30 line is offered in
three unique versions – QX30, QX30S and QX30 AWD – in the U.S. and
Canada. It is scheduled to go on sale in mid-2016.
