Report: Infinti G25 Coming With Turbo 2.5-Liter 4-Cylinder
Later this year, Infiniti will launch a turbocharged 2.5-liter version of its G sedan. This new model will directly target entry-level luxury competitors like the BMW 328i, Lexus IS250 and AudiA4 2.0T.
The Infiniti G25 (G25t?) will use the 2.5-liter V6 currently found in the Japanese-market Infiniti G, which is known as the Skyline. In Japan, the non-turbocharged 2.5-liter motor makes 210-hp and 195 ft-lbs o torque, meaning that a turbocharged version should produce closer to 250-hp. This would put it ahead of the competition in terms of power and offer more attractive fuel economy, not to mention a more attainable price.
Currently only a G25 sedan is planned and there is no word on if Infinti will offer the new engine in its coupe and convertible models.
The Infiniti G25 is expected to arrive this Fall.
