Nissan’s luxury car division, Infiniti has yet again come up with a new and innovative design in the form of 2017 Infiniti Q50. This is the latest version of Q50 – a new sedan manufactured by Infiniti. Since the time of its conception back in 2007, this Q50 series has made tremendous progress as an entry level vehicle. This new 2017 model is likely to introduce some serious changes in this franchise. Most of these changes will be refreshed or redesigned for future use as well.
2017 Infiniti Q50: Engine Options
Earlier this year, it was announced that Infiniti is not considering making any changes to the mechanical aspect of 2017 Infiniti Q50. This was great news for their customers who favored its previous engine immensely. So this 2017 model will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbocharged engine.
Power output for this engine is around 400 hp along with max 350 lbs. feet of torque. Maximum output from this engine is achieved by pairing a 7-speed electronic automatic transmission module with it. Manual transmission options might become available as well.
The standard base model will feature rear wheel drive train configuration, while Infiniti has assured its customers that a separate all wheel drive train configuration will be available as well.
2017 Infiniti Q50: Redesign Changes
As far as aesthetic and visual changes are concerned, this 2017 Infiniti Q50 will receive important visual updates in the coming months. Even though this new model will undergo several modifications, but its primary change will come in its exterior design.
