The 2011 Infiniti M made its world debut at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 2011 M Class will be offered with two distinct power levels. At the top of the heap is the Infiniti M 56 powered by a 420 HP 5.6 Liter VVEL Direct Injected V8 followed by the more practical Infiniti M37 with a 330 HP 3.7 Liter VVEL V6 under the hood, both models will start to arrive in dealer’s showrooms in late March 2010.
For 2011, Infiniti has updated the M luxury sedan with more aggressive body lines giving it a much sportier appearance emphasized by oversized grill and crystal like headlights, plus size aluminum alloy wheels, wave like trunk that acts like an aerodynamic aide at speed to increase downforce.
Both versions of the M Class luxury sedan will be offered with rear wheel drive or Infiniti’s Intelligent All Wheel Drive system as well as an array of advanced technology systems from the Japanese automaker like Active Noise Control, Forest Air climate control, Infiniti Drive variable driving modes, Active Trace Control, Eco Pedal and enhanced Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System.
Prices start at a $46,250 USD for the M37 rear-wheel drive and $48,400 USD for the M37x all-wheel drive. The 2011 Infiniti M56 start at $57,550 USD for the M56 rear-wheel drive and $60,050 USD for the M56x with Infiniti Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
