There's big news for the Infiniti M mid-size premium performance sedan for 2008: the fortification of its base V-6 engine, now dubbed VQ35HR (High Revolution).
This edition of Nissan's lauded VQ-series V-6 was introduced in the second-generation G35
sedan and it brings a gain of 28 horsepower to the M35
and M35x for power totals of 303 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The rear-drive model also gets a new seven-speed automatic, while the all-wheel-drive edition sticks with its five-speed automatic.
The V-8 M45 stars the same for this year, but all Infiniti Ms also get a Drive Sport shift mode and automatic speed-sensing door locks, along with Scratch Shield paint.
