Infiniti G25 Sedan – Click above for high-res image

Infiniti now has a online configurator for the G25 powered by a 2.5-liter V6, and the details are, quite frankly, a bit of a mixed bag. We already knew that the base G25 starts at a very reasonable $30,950 ($31,825 with $875 destination), or $4,100 less than the base G37 Journey. That starting price won't come with such niceties as Bluetooth, dual climate control or a USB interface for your electronic gadgets. To reach that level of refinement you'll have to step up to the G25 Journey, which stickers for $32,350 ($33,225 with destination). To add all-wheel drive to your G25 you'll have to come up with still more cash. The G25X has all the standard equipment of the G25 Journey, but adds AWD and a snow mode for $33,950 ($34,825 with destination).

You'll undoubtedly save money up front if you opt for a G25, but you'll also save at the pump... a little. The G25's EPA numbers read 20 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. That's not bad for a luxury sled, but it's also only fractionally better than the far more powerful G37, which nets respectable 19/27 numbers. The G25X tells a similar story, with 19/27 numbers only marginally better than the G37X's 18/25 totals.

There is little doubt that there's a market in the U.S. for the G25. After all, there are plenty of folks out who will be happy to rock a G Sedan with a lower MSRP and better fuel economy than the now up-level G37. But the G25's 2.5-liter V6 with 218 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque is 110 horsepower and 82 lb-ft behind the G37's fabulous 3.7-liter V6, and when you consider the mediocre improvement in fuel economy, we're inclined to keep saving pennies until we can afford the G37.

NEW 2011 INFINITI G25 SEDAN ON SALE NOW WITH A STARTING M.S.R.P. OF $30,950 USD

Infiniti announced that the latest addition to the popular Infiniti G Line, the G25 Sedan, is on sale now at Infiniti retailers nationwide. The 2011 Infiniti G25 Sedan, which features a new 2.5-liter V6 and 7-speed automatic transmission, has a starting Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price* (M.S.R.P.) $30,950 USD.

The Infiniti G25 Sedan shares the same dynamic exterior, interior and chassis as the G37 Sedan, but with a smaller displacement engine and improved fuel economy. The 2.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 produces 218 horsepower and 187 lb-ft of torque, versus the G37's 3.7-liter DOHC 24-valve VVEL V6's 328 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. The G25 Sedan is available in both rear-wheel drive and intelligent all-wheel drive.

Three models are offered: G25 Sedan with an M.S.R.P. of $30,950 USD, the G25 Sedan Journey priced at $32,350 USD and the G25x Sedan AWD with an M.S.R.P. of $33,950.

"With the new Infiniti G25 Sedan, we're broadening the appeal of the G Line with a model designed to provide an additional choice for buyers looking for a true luxury sedan, but who might not need the higher levels of performance provided by our larger engine-equipped G37 models," said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore. "The G25 is positioned in the heart of the luxury sport sedan market, allowing us to bring Infiniti's Inspired Performance to a wider selection of buyers."

Other standard G25 Sedan features range from 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, High Intensity Discharge (HID) Xenon headlights, 4-wheel Anti-lock Disc Braking System (ABS), Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS). The G25 Sedan Journey model adds RearView Monitor, heated front seats, heated outside mirrors, auto on/off headlights, Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control and more.

In addition, the 2011 Infiniti G lineup includes the Infiniti G37 Coupe and Infiniti G37 Convertible.
