The Japanese luxury automaker has brought to the 2016 Chicago Auto Show which is currently underway its 2016 Q50 US-spec packing a range of three turbocharged gasoline engines.
Nissan’s upscale division has spilled the beans on the “new advanced engines” for the Q50 model for some time and now we can see the turbo triumvirate displayed in the Windy City thanks to the show cars. The base argument is coming from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder churning out 208 horsepower (155 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (349 Newton meters) of torque if the new owner will take the Q50 2.0t, which can be had with RWD and al-wheel drive systems. The median offering is the newly developed biturbo 3.0-liter V6 which is labeled as the company’s most advanced V6 motor ever produced. It will be offered in lieu of the naturally-aspirated 3.7-liter mill and can be had with 300 hp (224 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque in the 3.0t guise.
The same powerplant will also get worked out to 400 hp (298 kW) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) in the feisty Q50 Red Sport 400. Both versions featuring the V6 motor will be linked to a seven-speed automatic transmission sending the output to a RWD or AWD configuration. Eco-conscious buyers can also have the Q50 Hybrid which matches a naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 to an electric motor in order to boast a total output of 360 hp (268 kW). At the show Infiniti has also brought the refreshed QX60 and the compact QX30 offering.
