Default 2016 Infiniti Q50 Gets Twin-Turbo V6 with 400 HP


Quote:
Itís not quite the insane performance of the Q50 Eau Rouge, but the 2016 Infiniti Q50 has been updated with a 400-horsepower V6 engine.

At a special holiday event, the Japanese luxury automaker unveiled the 2016 Infiniti Q50 ahead of its public debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, boasting three new engines including the 400-hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

As the most advanced V6 ever offered by the brand, it has the highest standard horsepower in its class for a non-specialty model. The powerplant will come in a new Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 model starting early spring 2016. Other enhancements on the Q50 Red Sport 400 include all-new dynamic digital suspension, a new rack-mounted electronic power steering or an updated version of direct adaptive steering setup and staggered 19-inch wheels.

In addition to the twin-turbo V6, a 300-hp version will be available across the entire Q50 lineup in late spring. The third new powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 208 hp, developed in conjunction with Daimler. That engine will be offered in base and Premium Q50 2.0t models starting in late winter. Buyers can also expect the Q50 Hybrid in late winter 2016, featuring a 3.5-liter hybrid powertrain with a combined system output of 360 hp.

Infiniti will also show off the all-new 2017 Infiniti Q60 sport coupe at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, where we can likely expect the same powerplants to be offered.

'The Q50 has been the heart of our Infiniti lineup since it was introduced two years ago. So now itís only appropriate that we get Q50 driversí hearts beating a little faster with these advanced VR-series engines,' Infiniti said.

NICE!!! As a Venetian Ruby Q50S Hybrid owner, this is refreshing. I just hope the pricing for the hybrid model does not increase due to the new power trains.

Maybe you're in a different situation but to those people that are raised/trained with this misconception or mentality to "never lease" or it's "it isn't worth it" or "it's not for me", well, this is an example of the kinds of situations where leasing a car can make sense---to be able to switch up and out to the next generation/iteration of a vehicle in near real-time can become a really great option to have for certain drivers.

Leasing is great for someone that lives in a big city and doesn't drive much.

I put 22,000 miles a year just commuting to work, my 4 year old Nisan Frontier has 165,000 miles on it already. Can you imagine what the mileage charges on 60,000 extra miles over 2 years world cost? And "open ended" leases are ridiculously expensive. They only work for businesses that can deduct it off of their taxes.

2015 Q50S, Moonlight Pearl White, Lighted kick panels, Navigation, package, none of the nanny drivers aids.

I chose a 24 month lease on my 2014 Q50 because I was a bit concerned about the first year technology. It was about $20 more per month to do a 24 month lease vs a 36/39 month lease. Looking back, it definitely worked out well for me as I'll be turning in my current car in March and (hopefully) getting a Q50S Red Sport!

I think it's the same. You buy a car for 45k. Sell it for 28-33k. You lost about 15k

You lease a car for 2 years at $450-550 a month plus 1k down. You lost about 14k
