Infiniti's G Line of sedans was updated for the 2013 model year and now we may know why. The all-new 2014 Q50 is technically the replacement for the popular G37 sport sedan series, but Infiniti has decided to keep the G Line in production for almost two more years as sort of an entry level model (which includes price drops in the thousands of buckeroos). The line-up has been simplified as well with the mighty 3.7-liter V6 (328 hp) as the only engine mated to a seven-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is still available for about $1,500 added to the G37 Journey sedan that starts at $32,550...a more than $4,000 price drop. The Premium and Navigation Packages are the only options. The new pricing is now available and the lovely Q50 is due at your local dealer anytime now. For more info, check out the press release after the "read more" jump.

Infiniti Continues Production of G37 Sedan - Will be Sold Alongside the All-New Q50 Premium Sedan
- Infiniti G37 sedan will remain on sale in the United States until mid-2015
- Revised line-up with M.S.R.P.s repositioned, effective August 6
- All-new Infiniti Q50 and Q50 Hybrid available this week at Infiniti retailers nationwide
"The introduction of the Q50 with its distinctive design, engaging performance, world's first technologies and unmatched levels of connectivity and personalization, enables us to pursue a two-pronged strategy, said Infiniti Americas Vice President Ben Poore. "It creates room to strategically offer the repositioned G37 at the lower end of the near luxury segment in addition to the higher-positioned Q50. The two vehicles aim at different market segments and allow us to serve different customer needs."
Two models of the Infiniti G37 Sedan will continue to be produced, the G37 Sedan Journey and G37 Sedan AWD. Only two options will be available, the Premium and Navigation Packages.
The significantly streamlined and focused G37 product lineup is a key driver of the price repositioning. The adjusted base Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices (MSRP)* for the 2013 Infiniti G37 Sedan are:
|G37 Sedan Journey||3.7-liter V6 / RWD||$32,550 USD|
|G37 Sedan AWD||3.7-liter V6 / AWD||$34,150 USD|
The dramatic new 2014 Infiniti Q50 is offered in a choice of 328-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 or 360 net horsepower 3.5-liter Hybrid models.
