With this guide, you’ll be all set to pick the perfect model that matches your need for speed and driving flair.

Engine Options

The 2024 INFINITI Q50 stands out with its diverse engine options, each meticulously engineered to cater to different driving preferences and styles. At the heart of the Q50’s performance lies the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, a marvel of modern automotive engineering with two distinct power outputs to suit the needs of various drivers.

300-Hp Twin-Turbo V-6 Engine

The 2024 INFINITI Q50’s twin-turbo V-6 engine is like the superhero of car engines, flawlessly blending power and efficiency. It’s the star of the show on the Luxe and Sensory trims, made for drivers who want the best of both worlds. Packing a punch with 300 horsepower, the Q50 zooms ahead with gusto, turning every drive into a thrilling joyride. Its torque of 295 lb-ft ensures a seamless surge of power, giving you that instant acceleration for highway sprints and exciting twists and turns.

But wait, there’s more. This engine isn’t just brawn; it’s brains and tech, too. The twin-turbo setup ensures the Q50 sips fuel wisely without skimping on performance. So, you get the best of both worlds—power and practicality in one sleek ride. With this powerhouse engine, the Luxe and Sensory trims offer a striking and smooth driving experience, making the 2024 INFINITI Q50 a top pick for those who crave sophistication and performance in their wheels.

400-Hp Twin-Turbo V-6 Engine

If you are a thrill-seeker and want the ultimate Q50 experience, the Red Sport 400 trim is the way to go. Packed with a turbocharged V-6 engine belting out 400 horsepower, you can transform your daily commute into a heart-pounding adventure. The engine’s twin turbochargers give you lightning-fast acceleration, making every drive a thrill. With 350 lb-ft of torque, this powerhouse not only packs a punch but also delivers a silky-smooth ride, epitomizing the INFINITI standard of luxury.

In addition to its impressive power output, the 400-horsepower V-6 engine features advanced technologies that enhance its performance and efficiency. From the direct injection system, which maximizes fuel efficiency, to the variable valve event and lift (VVEL) technology, which fine-tunes valve timing for optimal airflow, this engine is a symphony of power and precision.

Every engine option works harmoniously with a slick seven-speed automatic transmission, ensuring buttery-smooth gear changes that amp up the joy of driving. This smart transmission saves on fuel and serves up power at lightning speed. Plus, with the Q50, you can pick the classic rear-wheel-drive setup for that traditional sporty vibe or go all out with the intelligent all-wheel drive system. This AWD magic boosts traction and stability in all sorts of driving scenarios, giving you peace of mind and an extra sprinkle of safety for you and your loved ones.

Fuel Economy

The 2024 INFINITI Q50 is a pro at balancing power with efficiency. It’s like having a magic carpet that zips through the streets without constantly needing a pit stop at the pump. The Luxe trim, with rear-wheel drive, flaunts an impressive 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, giving you an incredible combined 23 mpg. So, if you decided to cruise from Chicago to Springfield, Illinois, which is about 200 miles away, the Q50 would only sip around 6.9 gallons of premium fuel for the journey, thanks to its stellar highway fuel efficiency.

If you opt for the all-wheel drive model, you’ll get a slightly different fuel economy story, thanks to extra gear under the hood. While exact numbers are not yet available, it’s expected to offer better grip and handling, particularly in difficult weather conditions. The all-wheel-drive system distributes power between the front and rear wheels for improved traction and stability on slippery roads. It may consume more fuel than the rear-wheel drive Luxe trim, but its added safety and control may be worth it for drivers who frequently encounter challenging driving conditions.

In addition to its advanced engine design and intelligent transmission, the INFINITI Q50 boasts several other features contributing to its impressive fuel efficiency. These include:

  • Aerodynamic design: The Q50’s sleek bodywork and optimized airflow reduce drag, allowing the car to cut through the air with minimal resistance. This aerodynamic design not only enhances the vehicle’s stability at high speeds but also significantly reduces fuel consumption.
  • Weight reduction: The use of lightweight materials in the construction of the Q50 reduces the overall weight, which in turn requires less energy for acceleration and can lead to better fuel efficiency.
  • Eco mode: The eco mode adjusts throttle response and transmission mapping to favor fuel conservation, making it ideal for eco-conscious drivers who still desire a spirited ride.
  • Start-Stop system: This system shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stationary and restarts it when the accelerator is pressed, reducing idle time and saving fuel.
  • Regenerative braking: This system captures energy that would otherwise be lost during braking and uses it to recharge the battery, which can then be used to power vehicle accessories.
  • Eco pedal: This pedal encourages economical driving by providing feedback when using more fuel than needed.
  • Independent suspension system: By improving the ride quality and reducing friction, the suspension system contributes to a smoother drive that can positively impact fuel economy.
