Infiniti doesn’t plan on offering a 2013 model year G25, in preparation for the upcoming new-generation G series, according to Infiniti spokesman Kyle Bazemore. The G25, having a base price of $33,495 including shipping, is $4,000 less expensive than the Infiniti’s volume car G37. This is due to the fact that the G37 is ran by a more powerful 3.7-liter V-6, while the G25 is powered by an older 2.5-liter V-6 powerhouse.
The G25, however, account for only a small part of total G-sedan sales, Bazemore says. Infiniti unveiled the G25 in the 2011 model year, portraying it as an entry-level portal into the brand. Infiniti launched the G-series -- a less-expensive, lower horsepower model – in 2010 as an effort to attract more women buyers, as the brand has been more enticing to men.
The company has scheduled the G series for a redesign for 2014, as the carmaker refuses to upgrade the G25 engine as it already reached the end of its cycle. Infiniti however, will be implementing engine upgrades to its two 2013 models: the EX and FX crossovers. Both models will be fitted with 3.7-liter V-6 engines, in lieu of the 3.5-liter engines that are used on the 2012 version. Infiniti will roll out the 2013 models in September.
