2014 Infiniti Q50 Luxury Car World Debut Video @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
http://www.autobytel.com/auto-shows/united-states/detroit/?id=32972 At the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, Infiniti debuted the new Q50 compact luxury car that is set to replace the G-Series line. The new 2014 Infiniti Q50 combines wonderful styling, tons of technology, and a high performance V-6 engine. A hybrid power plant will also be offered for the first time on the new Q50 luxury sedan. The departure from the G-Series naming scheme is part of Infiniti's Global Market aim to house all vehicles under the Q or QX nameplate.
The 2014 Infiniti Q50 is not just the first vehicle to make use of the new naming scheme; it's also the replacement for the G-Sedan. This is a very important car for the Japanese luxury brand. In the past, the G-Sedan has been consumer's most often used entry point into the Infiniti brand. That means this luxury car has to satisfy the needs of a variety of buyers across numerous markets.
Infiniti sticks with the tried and true 3.7 liter V-6 engine that produces 328 horsepower and 269 lb-ft. of torque. But the big news is the new hybrid power plant which combines a 3.5 liter V-6 engine to an electric motor which combine to produce 354 horsepower. This will give Infiniti not only a powerful hybrid, but one that should get good fuel economy.
The new 2014 Infiniti Q50 is longer, wider, and lower than the G-Sedan that it will be replacing. The luxury car is also a bit heavier. Outside you can see a lot of M-Series styling cues along the side of the car. Up front the pinched trapezoidal grille can be seen; this feature is starting to proliferate across the luxury segment, most evident in the new Lexus Spindle grille.

2014 Chevy Corvette C7 Stingray Interview Video with Harlan Charles @ 2013 Detroit Auto Show
Test Editor Benjamin Hunting catches up with Harlan Charles, Corvette
Product Manager, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show for some excellent insights
on the new C7 Stingray.
How did you balance the evolution of the design with what people come to
expect to see in a Corvette?
"We really wanted to create an all new Corvette, every surface, everything
people see was intended to be all new but also unmistakably Corvette. In
the back of our minds we wanted to bring back the passion of the Stingray;
some of the famous Corvettes like the 1959 Corvette racecar designed by
Bill Mitchell, or the 1963 split-window. We wanted to bring back some of
that passion but necessarily the same design cues. The goal was to create a
new Corvette statement going forward that builds on the past but in an
entirely new way. So one of the fine balances we did was incorporating a
lot of racing technology which you can see in the car via the functional
air vents and cooling outlets derived from the racecar while at the same
time trying to make the car more sophisticated and upscale."
Are we going to see different variations of the Corvette that will allow
you to take on higher end GT cars?
"Within the new Corvette Stingray line-up we have the Z-51 Performance
Package to satisfy those who are looking for more track oriented
performance, but then there will be different options at a higher luxury
level that can be added on such as faux leather or suede headliner. We are
going to have a lot of different ways that you can tailor the car to your
needs whether it is more towards the performance end of the spectrum or the
luxury GT end. What this will do is not only open the car up to the
hard-core performance enthusiasts, but also to those who appreciate cars in
Will there be additional smaller displacement engines in the future?
"I will say the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray does have a large displacement
6.2 liter engine, but there is an Eco-Mode with cylinder deactivation which
essentially makes the car under certain conditions a 3.1 liter 4-cylinder.
With this technology we are allowing people to have the best of both
worlds: a large V-8 with 450 ft.-lbs. of torque when you want it and you
can also have the fuel economy of a 4-cylinder."
The Corvette gets faster with each
new generation; will we ever hit a wall in terms of performance?
"We keep pushing the technology envelope. On the C6 Corvette, we never
thought that the car would make over 630 horsepower in the ZR-1, but
we did surpass that figure. And I think the performance will keep on going,
people will always want more power and more speed. We are going to keep
pushing the envelope as much as we can."
