The second generation of Infiniti's top-selling vehicle was introduced by Mr. Carlos Ghosn, president and CEO, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., at a media event in Javits Center. The new G is scheduled to go on sale in November 2006.
"This new 2007 G35 takes up where the original began - with a clear, unique vision," said Mr. Ghosn. "It breaks new ground in luxury, styling, performance, quality and craftsmanship."
The G's new exterior continues the previous model's vibrant design theme with clean, athletic styling. Key design elements include sculpted grille blades, iconic headlights and taillights and crisp character lines.
Inside, the all-new interior design is refined, inviting and offers a new level of modern warmth and hospitality. The G interior also offers unique features such as the white-and-violet Fine Vision gauge illumination and high-touch, textured aluminum-alloy trim with "Washi" (traditional Japanese handmade paper) patterning.
Available advanced technologies include RearView Monitor, a touch screen navigation system with available real-time traffic and the audiophile-quality Infiniti Studio on Wheelsâ„¢ by BoseÂ®, combining the industry's first 3-way front door speaker array using 10-inch woofers with an audiophile quality head unit incorporating a 24-bit Burr BrownÂ® Digital Audio Converter.
The heart of the G35 remains its advanced engine, platform and drivetrain, anchored by the "next generation" of the award-winning VQ-series 3.5-liter DOHC V6, now rated at an estimated 300-plus horsepower*. The standard V6 is mated to a choice of a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode and Downshift Rev Matching or close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. Solid magnesium paddle shifters are standard on the G35 Sport A/T model.
The G's second generation FM (Front Mid-ship) platform features a 4-wheel independent suspension with lightweight aluminum components and improved body stiffness. The 2007 G35 is also offered with Infiniti "intelligent" all-wheel drive system.
Comfort and convenience features include standard Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, available Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS), wood trim and Intelligent Cruise Control with Preview Braking.Â
