2008 Infiniti G37 Trims

Base

Avg. Price: $20,033

The new wedge-shaped G37 sport coupe is powered by a 3.7-liter, VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) V6 engine that produces an impressive 330 horsepower. The VVEL technology not only tunes the engine continually for optimal performance, but also provides improved fuel efficiency and lower carbon-dioxide emissions.

The engine is linked to a five-speed automatic transmission. Drivers have the option of letting the automatic do all the work, or they can select each gear manually using magnesium metal paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.

The interior of the G37 is trimmed with Washi-finish aluminum that mimics the textured look of Japanese paper. The leather-trimmed driver's seat is power-adjustable 14 different ways, and a wide center console houses the car's 11-speaker, Bose-designed Infiniti Studio on Wheels stereo system.

Among the G37's other features are 14-inch brake disks, 19-inch wheels, and four-wheel Active Steer, which means that all wheels turn as you steer. This helps improve handling, especially during hard cornering.

Journey

Avg. Price: $19,828

The Journey is the midlevel trim of Infiniti's new G37 Coupe. This style offers some extra luxury amenities. In addition to base features, like bi-xenon headlamps, leather upholstery, eight-way driver's and four-way passenger power seats, and automatic climate control, the Journey gains dual-zone automatic climate control and an in-dash CD changer. The four-way power passenger seat in the base G37 is also upgraded to an eight-way unit here.

Options include the Premium Package, which adds a sunroof, a power steering wheel, driver memory, heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, an upgraded Bose stereo, and an iPod interface. A navigation system, complete with real-time traffic information, voice activation, a rearview camera and a 9GB hard drive, is also available with this package. Infiniti's Technology Package, featuring adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, and pre-crash seatbelts, also becomes available when the Premium Package is selected. The sunroof can be had as a standalone option.

Sport

Avg. Price: $20,021

The G37's top-shelf Sport trim gains many performance enhancements, differentiating it from the two lower-level trims. The Sport comes equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, a limited-slip rear differential, sport suspension, and more-powerful brakes. Inside, this G37 features sport front seats with manual thigh extensions and driver's power-adjustable torso and thigh bolsters. The Sport also gains 19-inch wheels and high-performance tires.

Buyers can also add the optional Premium Package, which includes a sunroof, a power steering wheel, driver's seat memory, heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, an upgraded Bose stereo, and an iPod connection. A navigation system, complete with real-time traffic information, voice activation, a rearview camera, and a 9GB hard drive, is also available with this package. Infiniti's Technology Package, featuring adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlights, and pre-crash seatbelts, also becomes available when the Premium Package is selected. The sunroof can be had as a standalone option.
