In 2007, during the New York International Auto Show, Nissan’s Infiniti unveiled the G37 coupe. Supplied with a sturdy 3.7 L (330 hp) engine and a 5-speed automatic transmission. The showcase of the automobile demonstrated the course Infiniti was taking in terms of design and tech development.

At the 2009 Geneva International Motor Show, Infiniti officially revealed the replacement of their G35 model – the fresh G37 sedan. Powerful 3.7 L (328 hp) engine, along with Nissan’s new VVEL, offers a better performance and driving experience in comparison with the previously unveiled coupe. The standard transmission implemented in the automobile is a 7-speed automatic. Thanks to it, the car has enhanced performance and acceleration and reduced fuel consumption.

Infiniti’s team decided to transfer some of the features from the 5-speed transmission to the 7spd one, such as the DS (Drive Sport) and DRM (Downshift Rev Matching) modes. Also kept present in the configuration are the paddle shifters. As for the Sport 6MT model variant, the transmission received is a 6-speed manual one.

Infiniti’s G37 was available as G37, G37 Journey, G37S 6MT and G37x AWD models. According to the official manufacturer’s data, G37 came in several trim packages – Premium, Sport, Nav, and Tech.

The generation of G37 coupe includes three modifications with 3.7 L in three variants, all with two doors and four seats.

The first variant, equipped with a 3.7I V6 (320 Hp) and 5-speed automatic transmission, has an extra-urban fuel consumption of 9.5 l/ 100 km (19.6 US mpg/23.54 UK mpg). Its acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is in 6.0 seconds, while the top speed is locked at 250 km/h. The kerb weight is calculated to be 1774 kg (3,911 lbs.), while the maximal - 2112 kg (4,656.16 lbs.).

This particular model sports dimension parameters as follows: 4,651 mm (183.11 in.) length, 1824 mm (71.81 in.) width, 1392 mm (54.8 in.) height and 2850 mm (112.2 in.) as a wheelbase.

The second variant has the same numbers for extra-urban fuel consumption, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h and max. speed. In terms of vehicle weight, again – curb and maximum weight numbers match the first variant. The same goes for size parameters. According to the official specification sheets, they coincide.

The third G37 modification in the generation is included a bit later in time, compared with the previous two. It marks the period from 2009 until 2015. Its fuel economy’s numbers (extra urban) are quite different – 7.8 l per 100 km. The process of acceleration from solid 0 to 100 km/h takes a second less in comparison with the other cars in the gen – just 5.9 seconds. The top speed, though, remains the same 250 km/h. A little lighter is in terms of kerb weight – 1719 kg (3,789.75 lbs.). The official dimensions also do not entirely match its predecessors’: 4,655 mm (183.27 in.) length, 1820 mm (71.65 in.) width, 1395 mm (54.92 in.) height and 2850 mm (112.2 in.) wheelbase.

The power generated by the implemented engine is the same in all of the three modifications – 320 horsepowers.

The convertible Infiniti G37 gen was manufactured in between 2009 and 2015 and features just one modification with the same 3.7 L V6 engine, generating 320 hp. In terms of specifications, the G37 cabriolet has an extra-urban fuel economy of 8.3 l/ 100 km (28.34 US mpg/34.03 UK mpg). It is capable to jump from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.4 seconds and to reach 250 km/h as a maximum speed. The Cabrio's kerb weight is significantly greater than the one of the coupes -1898 kg (4,184.37 lbs.). Length, width, height, and wheelbase are different, too: 4,660 mm (183.46 in.), 1852 mm (72.91 in.), 1400 mm (55.12 in.) and 2850 mm (112.2 in.).

During the production span of G37, Infiniti released few special editions, including the famous 2009 Anniversary Art Project vehicle, dedicated to the outstanding Cirque du Soleil.

In 2010, a minor facelift was rolled out. It showcased G37’s revised front, new grill (intended for the sedan version of G37), new interior features (upholstery color combinations, trims, center display design) and few other system tweaks.

In 2013, G37 was replaced by the Q60 coupe and convertible.
