There is a new Q50 sedan that everyone thought would replace the G37, but the two cars will be sold together for now, which means a big price drop for the G.
Leftover G37 sedan has a 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 with a seven-speed automatic transmission; optional all-wheel-drive.
Nissan has been promising a replacement for the G37 for a while now, and we’ve essentially gotten it in the all-new Q50. So that means the old G is done, right? Well, not so much apparently. In a mysterious decision that we’re still trying to process, the old G37 sedan will be sold right alongside the new Q50. Thankfully, there is quite a difference between the two, not only visually but at the cash-register, too, since Infiniti has slashed five grand from the sticker price of the carryover sedan. The old G37 Coupe and Convertible models will now be known as the Q60 Coupe and Q60 Convertible, but are otherwise unchanged for 2014. Returning is the excellent and vocal 3.7-liter V6 that produces 328 horsepower stuffed under G37 sedan’s hood. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard, but unfortunately you can no longer order a six-speed manual transmission. The G37 still brings an astounding level of technology to four-wheeled transportation, such as “4-Wheel Active Steer” that automatically adjusts the steering gear ratio and rear suspension geometry according to how fast the car is traveling and the direction it’s heading. Given the G37 sedan’s quasi “budget” nature, it’ll only be offered in “base” Journey trim with rear-wheel drive, or active all-wheel drive for an extra $1,600. Similarly, only two option packages remain: a premium package with things such as an upgraded Bose audio system and a power glass moonroof, and another that includes a navigation system and multimedia playback on the main seven-inch touchscreen.
