The new model will be powered by a new 330bhp 3.7-litre V6 engine with VVEL (variable valve event and lift). The engine is backed by a choice of an upgraded electronically controlled five-speed automatic transmission with available paddle shifters or a revised six-speed manual transmission.

The G37 Coupe is available in three models: G37 Coupe, G37 Coupe Journey and G37 Coupe Sport 6MT. In addition to the huge list of standard features on all three models, several options and packages are available.

The Infiniti Navigation Package adds a touch screen navigation system, audio and HVAC functions and a 9.3-gigabyte hard drive with compact flash drive slot, and rear-view monitor. The Technology Package includes Infiniti intelligent cruise control (ICC) with preview braking, adaptive front lighting system (AFS) and, available for the first time on G Coupe, a ‘pre-crash’ seatbelt system.
