Following the launch of IPL and the 2011 IPL G Coupe, Infiniti announced today the addition of the G25 Sedan to its U.S. lineup – a less powerful but more affordable option for those looking to get into a G.
“With the new G25 Sedan, we”re broadening the appeal of the G Line with a model designed to provide an additional choice for buyers looking for a true luxury sedan, but who might not need the higher levels of performance provided by our larger engine-equipped G37 models,” said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore, speaking at a media event at the 60th annual Pebble Beach Concours d”Elegance. “The G25 is positioned in the heart of the luxury sport sedan market, allowing us to bring Infiniti”s Inspired Performance to a wider selection of buyers.”
Power for the 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan comes from a 2.5L DOHC 24-valve V6 engine making 218-hp and a peak torque of 187 lb-ft. The G25 Sedan comes standard with a 7-speed automatic transmission and is available in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Three models are offered including G25 Sedan, G25 Sedan Journey and G25x Sedan AWD.
Prices for the 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan start at $30,950. If you were wondering, the 328-hp Infiniti G37 Sedan starts at $33,250.
