Confirmed: Infiniti M25 not coming to the United States

2011 Infiniti M56

As lame as it may sound, it seems like it would be a smart move for Infiniti to bring its M25 sedan powered by a 2.5-liter VQ25VHR M25 to the United States. A 4,000 pound sedan with a smaller-displacement engine, with a cheaper price tag and higher fuel-economy could compete well with the likes of the BMW 528i.

Whatever way you want to put it, it ain’t happening. A source inside Nissan has confirmed with Inside Line that the Infiniti M25 combination isn’t right for the U.S. market.

In Japan, the Infiniti M25 comes with a 2.5L V6 unit making 218-hp with a maximum torque of 217 lb-ft.

Guess we’ll just have to stick with the Infiniti G25.
