The all-new 2011 Infiniti M, which is set to launch at Infiniti retailers nationwide in spring 2010, embraces the essence of all things Infiniti – style, performance, luxury, craftsmanship and technology – taking each to the highest levels ever for Infiniti’s halo sedan.

The 2011 Infiniti M will be available in M37 and M56 model designations and with rear-wheel drive or with Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. The M37 features a 3.7-liter V6 engine with increased power and fuel economy (versus the previous generation M35’s 3.5-liter V6). The M56 also offers more power and better fuel economy from an all-new 5.6-liter V8 (versus the previous generation M45’s 4.5-liter V8). Both the M37 and M56 engines feature Infiniti’s advanced VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) system and all models are equipped with a standard 7-speed automatic transmission. A special Sport Package, offered on rear-wheel drive models only, offers 4-Wheel Active Steer (4WAS), sport-tuned suspension, Sport Brakes and 20-inch wheels and tires.

The new M is also a showcase for Infiniti’s advanced, user-focused technologies, carrying on the tradition of the previous generation M. New technologies include Infiniti Drive, a four-mode driver-selectable control of throttle and transmission mapping that helps optimize vehicle performance; Active Noise Control, which reduces undesirable engine harmonics, providing a quieter cabin; Blind Spot Warning (BSW), which helps alert the driver if another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area; Blind Spot Intervention™ (BSI), a world’s first system that, in addition to the Blind Spot Warning, helps the driver return the vehicle back toward the center of the lane of travel; Forest Air™ system, which helps reduce the intrusion of unpleasant odors into the cabin and provides a more natural breeze-like airflow “breezes”; Eco Pedal, which provides driver feedback to encourage eco-driving behavior; and Active Tracing Control, which adjusts engine torque and the control of braking at each of the four wheels to help enhance cornering performance.

The 2011 M also offers a next-generation Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System, Bose® Studio Surround® premium audio system, Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) systems, Distance Control Assist (DCA), Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.

The M’s dramatic, sports styling provides a coefficient of drag of just 0.27 Cd, while the roomy, comfortable interior environment features standard leather-appointed seating, available silver powder-coated wood trim and available premium audio and climate control systems. Key standard features include Infiniti Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, XM® Satellite Radio, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and power sliding glass moonroof.
