Sales of the all-new 2011 Infiniti M are still a few weeks away, but Nissan's luxury arm has released pricing details on both the 2011 M37 and it's V8-powered brother, the M56.
In standard, rear-wheel drive guise, the M37 starts at $46,250 – just $450 more than the outgoing model – and comes packing the 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6, with considerably more grunt than the last generation's 3.5-liter V6 and better fuel economy to boot. The all-wheel drive variant starts at $48,400, and both models come equipped with Infiniti's Drive Mode Selector, Active Noise Control, RearView Monitor and Enhanced Intelligent Key memory.
Option up for the 2011 M56 and in addition to the 420-hp, direct injected 5.6-liter V8, the Premium Package comes standard, including the eight-inch VGA touch screen with navigation, Bose 10-speaker audio system, 9.3-gig Music Box hard drive, streaming Bluetooth audio, heated and cooled front seats and heated steering wheel. All told, the M56 comes in at $57,550 for the rear-wheel drive model and $60,050 for the M56x with all-wheel drive. That's a sizable bump over the outgoing M45, but considering all the additional kit that comes with the new V8 model, it's a justifiable increase and certainly in line with the competition.
