    SAN FRANCISCO (June 3, 2004) – Infiniti, Nissan’s luxury division, today announced a number of significant enhancements to its popular G35 sport coupe and G35 sport sedan for the 2005 model year in North America. The changes include the introduction of a new coupe Sport model, a redesigned exterior appearance for the sedan and a redesigned instrument panel and console area with aluminum trim or optional wood trim on both the 2005 G35 coupe and G35 sedan.

    Another major enhancement for the new model year is an increase in power for all G35 sedans to 277 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque (from 260 hp/260 lb-ft). The G35 sedan lineup, which added a new all-wheel drive version in the 2004 model year, also receives new exterior styling for 2005 – featuring a new hood, grille, bumpers, side sills, taillights and wheels.

    The G35 coupe’s new Sport model will be available in an advanced 5-speed automatic transmission or with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. The Sport 6MT model receives an additional 15-plus horsepower over automatic-equipped G35 coupe’s standard 280 horsepower, bringing its power to the 295-horsepower range (final figures to be released later).

    In addition, the manual transmission design on both coupe and sedan models has been improved to provide a lower shifting effort.

    The 2005 G35 sedan will be offered in four models, each equipped with a standard 3.5-liter V6, 4-wheel independent suspension and the refined exterior. For 2005, the sport-tuned suspension package has been upgraded with 18-inch lightweight cast aluminum wheels with 235/45R18 tires and drilled aluminum pedals.

    The G35 coupe will be offered in three models for 2005, Coupe, Coupe Sport A/T and Coupe Sport 6MT. Both Sport models include a new sport-tuned suspension, Viscous Limited-Slip Differential (V-LSD), 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels and drilled aluminum pedals.

    “Infiniti built its reputation on a stunning combination of powerful rear-wheel and all-wheel drive vehicles and outstanding customer service,” said Mark Igo, vice president and general manager, Infiniti Division. “The G35 has been a key element in our recent product line expansion and with the enhancements for 2005, our product momentum remains strong.”

    The 2005 Infiniti G35 sedan and coupe with automatic transmissions are scheduled to be available at Infiniti dealers in North America beginning in October 2004. Manual transmission equipped models will go on sale in December 2004.

    The announcement came during the Nissan 360 news media event, a three-week program in San Francisco featuring the automaker’s current and future worldwide product and business plans. At the event, about 500 reporters had the opportunity to drive nearly 70 Nissan and Infiniti vehicles to familiarize themselves with the breadth of Nissan’s global product lineup.

    Regardless, I'd still take a 330i or CTS over the sedan, and a Ci or RX8 over the coupe.

    Can you say "YAY" for no resale. If they change them every two years, it just makes the previous model worthless, good job Nissan. Why don't they focus on making a better interior than a Hyundai for their premium line, then worry about the exterior and power, those are two things that are alright.

    Nissan isn't in the business of selling used cars. They really don't care about resale.

    And they are laughing their way all the way to the bank when you buy one. Nissan is smart for selling cars to stupid people

    The G35 coupe are overrated....2 of my family members have one.....nothing good about it....but its still a really weird looking and cheap feeling vehicle.

    Point is, to each their own. I'd take the still-gorgeous, 6 year old Ci over the Nissan any day of the week.

    :werd: The G35 coupe is hot, but I wouldn't spend $33,000 on one. I wonder what price range these cars are going to fall into used with this announcement.

    Probably $15k, I wouldn't be suprised if they end up being cheaper than the Z's on resale. I guess that is good for poor people? They can be ghetto fabulous in a $15k fancified nissan?

    This from someone claiming to own a fancified Toyota. Too cute.

    i dont think so...look at every other Infiniti model...comes out for a yr...and the value drops drastically after a yr or so...1)bc it cant sell or 2)it just has no value...dont get me wrong...i think theyre great cars...but look at the Q...the dealership near my house has a $10K rebate....:ugh: ...you know something is wrong when it has a $10K rebate...

    Shit, i want low resale, i think the G35c looks HOT. If that came in AWD (im biased towards AWD) i'd be all over that when I could afford it.
