5 Fast Facts: 2016 Infiniti Q50

By Joseph Dobrian, May 25, 2016
Infiniti’s Q50 sport sedan adds a trio of new, more powerful, more efficient turbocharged engines for the 2016 model year, giving new car shoppers a choice of four engines in all.

Here are more facts about the 2016 Infiniti Q50:

1) The Q50 engine lineup for 2016 includes an all-new 3.0-liter V-6 twin-turbo gasoline engine with direct injection, available in two states of tune: 400 or 300 horsepower, generating, respectively, 350 and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Also available on the 2016 Q50 is a new 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine producing 208 horsepower, and a 360-horsepower hybrid powertrain, which combines a 3.5-liter V-6 and a compact laminated Lithium-ion battery. Both of these produce a maximum 258 lb.-ft. of torque. A 7-speed automatic transmission is standard. Rear-wheel (RWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) are available with all four engines.
2) The Q50 features next-generation Direct Adaptive Steering (DAS) and new Dynamic Digital Suspension (DDS). DAS now offers advanced levels of steering feel and feedback, according to Infiniti, and more options to personalize and tailor the system's levels of response. DDS provides an improved blend of ride comfort and agility, the automaker says. The Drive Mode Selector (DMS) can be augmented with a Personal mode, which permits a tailored mix of engine, suspension, and steering characteristics.
3) A new high-pressure direct-injection gasoline (DIG) system allows precise control of fuel injection into the combustion chamber depending on throttle position and current engine speed.
4) Exterior highlights include Infiniti’s signature “double arch” grille, with its elaborate detailing of a waved mesh pattern surface and chrome surround; distinctive LED headlights and daytime running lights, and, with the 400-horsepower engine, 19-in. aluminum-alloy wheels with summer performance run-flat tires.
5) Options include the safety-oriented Technology package and Driver Assistance package. The Premium Plus package, available on all engine options, includes auto-dimming exterior mirrors, electric memory exterior mirrors, electrically adjustable steering wheel with memory and easy entry functions, Infiniti InTouch with navigation and one year of InTouch services, navigation-synchronized adaptive shift control, and much more.
