NEW FOR 2011:
– All-new, redesigned model
For 2011, the Infiniti M is completely redesigned. Previously designated the M35 and M45, the models are now the M37 and M56, thanks to their larger engine sizes. Unlike the 2010 models, when the V6 model was all-wheel drive only, both are available in rear- or all-wheel drive.
The M37 uses a 3.7-litre V6 engine, while the M56 uses an all-new 5.6-litre V8, both with Infiniti’s VVEL (variable valve event and lift) technology. Both use a seven-speed automatic transmission.
Both models are available in rear-wheel drive as the M37 and M56, and in all-wheel drive, as the M37x and M56x.
Features on the M37 and M37x include 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, intelligent key with pushbutton ignition, power sunroof, auto up/down windows, illuminated vanity mirrors, ten-way power heated leather seats, CD/MP3 stereo, XM satellite radio, USB connector, seven-inch vehicle information screen, rearview monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, electroluminescent gauges, analog clock, power tilt and telescopic steering column, xenon headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, and power-folding heated mirrors with reverse tilt-down.
The M56 and M56x add navigation system with eight-inch screen and voice recognition, Bose premium audio system, 9.3 GB Music Box hard drive, streaming Bluetooth audio, climate-controlled front seats, and heated steering wheel.
Both rear-wheel drive models can be optioned with a Sport package that adds 20-inch alloy wheels, four-wheel active steering, sport-tuned suspension, four-piston front and two-piston rear calipers, bolstered sport seats, sport-trimmed steering wheel with paddle shifters, adaptive front lighting, intelligent cruise control, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, distance control assist, intelligent brake assist with forward collision warning, blind spot intervention system, active tracing control, eco pedal, Forest Air system with air purifier, aluminum pedal accents, and power rear sunshade. On the M37, the package also adds the M56’s additional navigation system, premium audio, climate-controlled seats and heated steering wheel.
Other available packages include the M37x Premium Package, M37x Deluxe Touring and Technology Package.
