    Just like every 04+ Prius comes with a TFT-LCD display no matter it comes with a NAVI or not, the new M will come equipped with the large display in every car. It is used to display all information (A/C control, TPMS, etc.). My best guess based on all info I gathered, anyway.

    Yeah thats rather typical of most luxury cars built these days, a screen comes standard, just the GPS software\antenna are optional.

    rayainsw, they did not say what the RPM was at 60 MPH.

     

    Yes, the car that they tested was the M45 Sport as far as I can tell, because they mentioned the Rear Active Steer system works really well as designed.

    "rayainsw, they did not say what the RPM was at 60 MPH. "

     

    Looks like it is 2300 rpm.

    (Under the other gearing info - top right of data panel, I believe.)

    Thanks,

    - Ray

    Personally preferring lower rpm at cruise (and better highway mpg) to the last few tenths improvement in SS 1/4 mile. . .
  • I am not sure if you have since been able to find out the answer to the question as to what the rpm was at 60mph. It is 2300rpm @ 60mph. Same article.
  • My guess is the M35 sport would be the hotseller. I would like to see a performance review of this so optioned vehicle. I also hope they make the 6speed manual transmission available pronto for this version as well. After that, I would like to see a 7-10 vehicle comparo. This vehicle as far as I can tell from what I have read so far, has no interior issues, except for that ATM comment in Car and driver I think it was. No such similar comments in Road and Track.

    DETROIT (Jan. 10, 2005) - Infiniti, the luxury division of Nissan North America, Inc., today announced pricing on the all-new 2006 Infiniti M performance luxury sedans during a press conference at the North American International Auto Show. The 2006 Infiniti M35 sedan, with 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 and 5-speed automatic transmission, features a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price* (MSRP) of $39,900. The Infiniti M45 sedan, with a 335-horsepower 4.5-liter V8 and 5-speed automatic transmission is priced at a MSRP of $46,750.

     

    The new Infiniti M will be available for display and test drives beginning in early February at Infiniti dealers nationwide and will be available for customer delivery in late February.

     

    Other available models include the M35 Sport, with a MSRP of $42,700; the M35 AWD with Infiniti’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, which is priced at a MSRP of $42,400; and the M45 Sport, with a MSRP of $49,550.

     

    supposed to be in salesroom sometime next month

    I somehow think M35 AWD would be the hot seller as you can drive it to any other States without worry about any whether.

     

    I think it would be wise for Infiniti to cancel G35 since M35 Sport and M35 AWD could fill G35's spot and cancel Q45 since you have M45 Sport to take its place.

    Then in 2007, you have Infiniti GT-R, that is like NSX in Acura line up.

        

    I think by 2008, Infiniti is ready to take on entire Acura lineup, entire Lexus lineup, BMW's entire 3 series and 5 series, Audi's A4, and A6, and portion of MB's C class E class or maybe S class.

    I mean with arrival of GT-R, Infiniti will take on Corvette C6, Porsche 911, Acura NSX, and other sports car.

    I bet by 2010, Infiniti will be the new benchmark.

    What a turn around.

    This is my prediction.

    1. M45

    2. 545i

    3. STS

    4. A6(V8)

    5. E350

    6. GS430

    7. RL

    I don't think BMW will lose to STS.

    Why would Infiniti cancel G35? Its a totally different car, in a different price range than M35. A fully loaded G35 AWD goes for just $36K. I dont know what is going to happen to the Q. It has essentially failed to compete against LS400\430 for 15 years now. They killed I35, the failed ES300\330 competitor, so the same fate may await the Q at the end of this models life span.

    What is with R&Ts comment about that the M45's " new interior is not quite up to the BMW, MB and Lexus" ??? I have been in several of those makes and am trying to figure what specifically they are referring to............
  • drewsrxdrewsrx Posts: 57
    05buyer,

     

    That is strange, the February issue of Automobile magazine says that the interior is not quite as good as Audi, but on par with Mercedes-Benz and better than Cadillac.

     

    "Matte rosewood trim or aluminum swoop and sweep across the M's intstrument panel in a design purportedly inspired by a piano keyboard. Nissan's cost cutters did not show up for this particular recital, so the cabin materials, if not best in class (Audi), are on par with Mercedes and superior to Cadillac."

     

    "If you drive the new M hard, you'll know that Infiniti is at last close to being the Japanese BMW. With cars this good, Infiniti's upcoming sixteenth birthday should be sweet."

    Funny, I think the new 5's interior stinks. It still doesnt take much effort to beat Cadillac at interiors.
