The all-new 2011 Infiniti M37 features a refined 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 engine with increased power and fuel economy (versus the previous generation M35’s 3.5-liter V6).
The M37 engine features Infiniti’s advanced VVEL (Variable Valve Event Lift) system and is equipped with a standard 7-speed automatic transmission. The M37’s 3.7-liter VVEL, 24-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy V6 is rated at 330 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque.
The M37 is available in rear-wheel drive and with Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system. A special Sport Package, offered on rear-wheel drive only, offers 4-wheel Active Steer (4WAS), sport-tuned suspension, Sport Brakes and 20-inch wheels and tires.
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 and Lane Departure Prevention systems, Distance Control Assist, Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Collision Warning and Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.
The new M’s sportier appearance can be attributed to the deep body shape of the fenders and doors that give the M sedan a powerful look unlike anything on the road. The new wave-style doors are constructed from aluminum for light weight, despite the material’s difficult formability. The stamping dies for each door are hand polished to maintain their precision and every door undergoes an exacting human inspection, providing a handcrafted level of quality.
