2010 Infiniti G37 Coupe
For the 2009 model year, the G37 Coupe lineup expanded with the addition of a new G37x Coupe AWD model featuring Infiniti’s “intelligent” ATTESA E-TS® all-wheel drive system. For 2010, the major enhancements are found inside the seductively styled G Coupe body – with revised colors and model/option package content.

The 2010 G Coupe is available in four models – G37 Coupe, G37 Coupe Journey, G37S Coupe Sport 6MT and G37x Coupe AWD. Every G37 Coupe comes equipped with a standard 3.7-liter VQ-series V6 with VVEL (for Variable Valve Event and Lift) rated at 330 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is backed by a choice of an electronically controlled 7-speed automatic transmission with available magnesium paddle shifters or a responsive 6-speed manual transmission.

The G37 Coupe’s advanced platform and chassis also includes an available 4-Wheel Active Steer system (4WAS), which helps improve vehicle handling performance by adjusting both the front steering gear ratios and the rear suspension geometry according to steering input and vehicle speed. Braking and handling is targeted to be among the best in the luxury sport coupe class.

The G37 Coupe also includes an extensive list of available technology features, including a touch screen navigation system with XM NavTraffic® Real-Time Traffic information (XM® subscription required, sold separately), RearView Monitor and an available 11-speaker Infiniti Studio on Wheels™ by Bose® audio system with 24-bit Burr Brown DAC, 3-way door speaker arrays with 10-inch woofers and a 9.3GB Music Box Hard Drive.

    Interesting...some minor updates, but I don't see any mention of the direction injection updates (rumored to encompass ~340-350hp and a slight bump in fuel economy).
  • jtlajtla Posts: 375
    Thank you for the information. Do you have any picture of (or link to such) the new interior/exterior designs?
  • sjaievesjaieve Posts: 252
    Nissan already has a 350HP engine in the Nismo 370Z, adding DI to that engine could bring the HP north of that. At this stage of the game I dont think they see the need to up the HP during a midcycle refresh. Most likely you will see the bump in the 2012 complete redesign. In any case I think there are watching the competition, once they make a move Nissan will try to out perform them this time. They got burnt last time when they brought in the 306HP G35 when only the 330i was available, only to be chopped off at the knees when the 335i came out.

    Got to love the changes in the 2010 though, this is one car company that knows to pull the right moves.

    For pics, watch the 2010 M when it comes out some time this month at Pebble Beach, that will give you an idea of whats coming in the 2010, before that, I doubt you will find anything.
  • members78members78 Posts: 130
    it was pretty much confirmed that the G series will receive the new DI engine mid-cycle, sometime after the new M series debuts with DI early next year. as for a specific date, no one really knows but infiniti. but after reading this interesting 2010 upgrade list, it appears the year for the G engine upgrade will be 2011 or mid-2010.
  • sjaievesjaieve Posts: 252
    Interesting, if the M is receiving a redesign for 2010 (with the same VQ37VHR as the G37), its quite possible the G will get the same treatment the year after. The only reservation I have with this line of thought is Infiniti would probably want to wait for BMW to make their move 1st, its more prudent for them seeing there are the underdog to the 335i. But you are right, only Nissan knows when it will happen ;)
  • m6userm6user Posts: 2,991
    White gauges??? Can't stand em. Hope there is an option to keep the present beautiful gauge cluster.
  • chiro444chiro444 Posts: 13
    When does the 2010 G37 come out?
  • sewellgsmsewellgsm Posts: 775
    Slotted for Jan 2010 (see original post) ;)
  • carjimcarjim Posts: 155
    Based on the ride and drive of my EX, my question is, will the G37 have a comparable ride? To put it another way, did they calibrate the ride to be less rough?
    The G has always had a harsh ride compared to the BMW 3. Infiniti needs to match the Bimmers' supple ride.
  • snagielsnagiel Posts: 750
    I think both the G37 and the 3-series offer an excellent balance between precise handling (which requires a firmly-configured suspension) and a comfortable ride. Of course, this balance varies depending on the model and packages (e.g. a base 328i rides softer than the 335 with the M sport package, which in turn is softer than the M3). Only you can judge if the ride firmness is acceptable for you, so go out and test them.

    (Personally, on my G37xS, I'm looking forward to the day when the shocks start wearing down and I can firm up the ride to improve grip and reduce body roll!)
  • carjimcarjim Posts: 155
    Here we are on the down side of September and I have not seen any images of the 2010 G. The reason may be because I do not know where to find them. Has anyone seen some pics?
  • sjaievesjaieve Posts: 252
    You wont find anything, trust me. For direction of where there are taking the 2010 I would look at the new M, even then, the G's interior has never been the same as the M's and I doubt the grill will look the same, but you will at least get an idea. Believe me, you are not the only one hunting for the pics:)

    I am pretty confident the 2010 will look nicer, Infiniti rarely disappoints when it comes to styling . When is Infiniti going to upgrade the interior quality of the G to match the EX :confuse:
  • oghowieoghowie Posts: 30
    I'll keep my fingers crossed that the G37 refresh won't be as bad as the M series refresh.
  • rll4rll4 Posts: 8
    I too am curious on the changes to the G37 for 2010. Won't be buying till early
    2010. If anyone finds a website with photos please reply with link.

    Thanks,
    RL
  • Other than the additional "X" on the rear badging, are there any other visual differences (switches, setup options, readouts, etc.) between the G37 coupe and the G37x coupe with premium packages? Does the non-X have the on/off snow rocker between the heated seat controls? Anything else?
  • maximafanmaximafan Posts: 592
    I have a question regarding the G37 Coupe. I believe I may have
    read somewhere that the exhaust note on the G37 Coupe is more
    muted than what it was on the G35 Coupe. That's one of the things I've always liked about the G35 was that special sound that
    it had, whether it was moving at light throttle or hard throttle.

    I'd like to hear anyone's comments about this, particularly if you've
    had the chance to drive both vehicles. Thanks

    Does the non-X have the on/off snow rocker between the heated seat controls?

    My G37S 6MT does not
  • addamsaddams Posts: 74
    Good luck A few floating around. Just went to the car show and Infiniti only had a 2010 M35 and a FX, rest were all 2009 models at the 2010 car show.
  • maximafanmaximafan Posts: 592
    Addams, lucky for you that Infiniti/Nissan even bothered to show up at the auto show in your town. In Tampa, Fl, they didn't show up this year, and neither did Mercedez-Benz!
  • WARNING – I WOULDN’T BUY THE INIFNITI G37.

    After owner a number of other performance cars (three BMW’s and two Audi’s) I decided to look at the Infiniti G37 this spring. After test driving it a few times I took the plunge and bought a G37 with some custom modifications done by the dealership.

    The was great until it after four months the service engine light came on and it stopped running. After it was towed to the dealership they called and told me that the reason the car stopped running is that it was nearly out of oil and that I would be responsible for the repair costs because I had failed to make my regularly scheduled oil change. When I asked who the oil light never came on I was told that on the Infiniti the warning light doesn’t come on until the car is out of oil (some warning!). So, in the end, in order to get my car back I had to pay another $3000.

    Now I will be the first to admit that I should have made that regularly scheduled maintenance appointment – and I know the importance of regular maintenance. That said, I would expect a brand new car to run for four months without needing $3k worth of repairs and the argument about the warning light is ridiculous.

    So, it’s a good ride, but be warned. Next time I will go back to BMW or Audi.
  • addamsaddams Posts: 74
    I'm wondering since they said they won't be out until Jan. if they won't show up at one of the biggest auto show in LA. It's in Dec.
  • members78members78 Posts: 130
    i understand your troubles with the G, but that's hardly reason to run a diatribe against infiniti. if you expect a new car to run without oil or gas, then you are unrealistic. infiniti doesnt put in those maintenance mile markers in the book for fun; theyre there to ensure smooth and troublefree ownership. you ignored their requirement and now you complain.

    i hope when you switch to bmw or audi, you dont experience any other problems. and believe me, their cars can be much more troublesome than a thirsty engine.
  • rll4rll4 Posts: 8
    I did not see miles driven only time. (4 months not 4 years) Anyway a new car should not burn oil in this amount unless there was a problem with the motor or it never had oil to begin with. You are talking at least 4 quarts. The exhaust would have looked like
    mosquito repellent fog or there would have been a puddle of oil on the garage floor due to a leak. Perhaps Infiniti installed a two stroke!

    I would get a second opinion. No way this can be normal.

    By the way, who is the dealer I want to stay away from them.

    Thanks for the warning.
  • I already have a good purchase price on a Lexus IS 250 MT, but I will like to see what the 2010 Infiniti G37 is going to be like before I close the deal, I hope Nissan have adjusted the gas comsumption issue with this car.
  • billpaulbillpaul Posts: 103
    Sorry about your misfortune in running out of oil in your engine. Did anyone figure out why your car was out of oil?

    Also, this is a reminder that the oil level should be checked regularly. It is not something that is left for the next scheduled oil change.

    How often is the oil supposed to be changed?
  • addamsaddams Posts: 74
    The 250 should get better mpg. Comparing that to the G37 is apples to oranges.

    The was great until it after four months the service engine light came on and it stopped running. After it was towed to the dealership they called and told me that the reason the car stopped running is that it was nearly out of oil

    I would dig more about the reason behind the oil warning light.. The story doesn't make any sense at all. First most oil warning light turn on when oil is low not out of it. Read your owner manual, they should tell you how the oil warning light work. Second, if you oil is running so low, you should have some other warning like high temperature light turn on.. And the 3000 bill, what does it include? it almost sound like rebuilding the engineer.. This is a post from another G37 owner about the low oil warning (before oil run out...)..

    http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f47/low-oil-warning-light-47449/

    Before I start, just to clarify this is regarding low oil warning, not oil pressure warning. It is the same light, difference is it comes on solid and stays on while there is low/no pressure. The low oil warning flashes the oil light for 30 seconds after starting and "oil lo" is displayed above the tripmeter/odo. The manual says the petrol owners don't get this feature

    I got the low oil warning 3 times in a row the other day. First time was starting a warm engine in my driveway which is a slight up hill gradient (which is the same place it gets parked since the day I bought it). As soon as I saw it 50 meters down the road I pulled over, shut down and checked the oil level which was spot on the full mark, checked the scan gauge for any codes but it had no codes stored, I also checked the manual cause I didn't know what was going on with it flashing, which is when I found out all the info above. So after that I started up to continue my trip and it happened again straight away, I went to work and left the car for about 4 hours after double checking the level again. Then I got the low oil warning again when I started it to go home.

    I'm using 10W-40 synthetic oil at the moment and a Ryco filter, the oil and filter gets changed every 5000km. Last oil change was about 2 months ago, and nothing has been changed since.

    I've been waiting for the 2010 G37 sedan and used the "contact us" option from the Infiniti website and asked about release date.

    They said "tenative wholesale release date of December 17th" 31 days away.

    No pricing yet....
  • addamsaddams Posts: 74
    They just told me sometime in Jan.
  • woj207woj207 Posts: 54
    Interesting. Did you get that reply from nnaconsumeraffairs@nissan-usa.com? Thats who replied to me with the 17th date. "The 2010 Infiniti G37 Sedan has a tentative wholesale release date of December 17, 2009. "
