The Inifiniti M will be getting a complete redesign that is scheduled to debut later this year, possibly at the Los Angeles Auto show. Along with new styling, the European version of the M is expected to be among the first Infinitis to adopt the 3.0-liter V6 diesel that Nissan has co-developed with alliance partner Renault. This same engine is already available in the Renault Laguna coupe and was expected to be appear in the Maxima in 2010 for the U.S. market. Unfortunately it appears increasingly unlikely that the diesel Maxima will ever appear in the U.S. and the same is likely true of the oil-burning M.

In Europe, the diesel V6 will probably end up under the hood of most of the Infiniti lineup which only recently went on sale there. That would include the FX, EX, G and the upcoming redesigned M. Here in the U.S., buyers will likely get only gasoline and hybrid versions of Infinitis. Thanks to Andrew for the tip!
