Infiniti Q50 Shows Off its 3 New Engines


The Infiniti Q50 is showing off its three new engines for the first time at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.

Announced late last year, the Q50 sports sedan from Infiniti will be available with three different powertrains by the end of this year, with a hybrid variant set to follow. Beginning in early spring, the Q50 Red Sport 400 will be offered with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine packing 400 horsepower, which is the most advanced V6 engine the Japanese automaker has ever offered. The Q50 Red Sport 400 will be followed up by the Q50 3.0t in late spring sporting 300 hp.

Later this year in winter, Infiniti will offer the Q50 2.0t in both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 208 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. The powerplant is offered in conjunction with Daimler and will be assembled at Infiniti’s engine plant in Decherd, Tennessee. The fourth powertrain option will be the Q50 Hybrid with Infiniti’s proven 3.5-liter gasoline-electric hybrid system with a total system output of 360 hp.
