At the heart of every sports coupe is its engine. Infiniti offers the Q60 with a trio of different turbocharged engine choices. 2.0t models feature a 208 horsepower 2.0L inline 4-cylinder engine. 3.0t models predictably utilize a 3.0L engine, this time with 6-cylinders and a turbocharger, making 300 horsepower. Top of the line Red Sport 400 models also use a 3.0L turbocharged 6-cylinder engine, however power has been upped to an even 400, providing extremely strong acceleration at any speed. No matter the engine choice, buyers will get a 7-speed automatic transmission sending power to either the rear wheels or to all-four wheels, as each trim level also has an all-wheel drive version.
The Infiniti Q60 comes in four basic trims, 2.0t, 2.0t Premium, 3.0t Premium and Red Sport 400. Being a luxury coupe, even the base 2.0t comes generously equipped.
