Instead, it will stick with the naturally aspirated 2.5-liter V-6 found in the Japanese domestic market Nissan Skyline 250GT sedan. This particular unit features double overhead cams and is rated at 210 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque--enough to give the 230 horsepower BMW 3281 sedan a run for its money.
We can't be sure of the details, and it's certainly not official yet, but it is an interesting idea.
Still, regardless of the sketchy details, the idea of a more entry-level Infiniti G sedan is intriguing. One does have to wonder, however, what implications moving further down-market and down in price might have on Infiniti's brand perception as a whole. With the new M on the way and Infiniti's efforts to move that nameplate even further up-market, the G25 seems almost counterproductive.
Even if the 2011 Infiniti G25 does manage to materialize in U.S. dealerships, don't expect it to include coupe or convertible versions--at least at first. According to the report, strong sales of the base sedan would mean both variants would also get the green light down the road, but that the four-door model would be the only one to start.
