LOS ANGELES – INFINITI will debut two vehicles and an industry first engine technology for the first time in North America today at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, which runs Nov. 18 through the 27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Additionally, the INFINITI Q60 Neiman Marcus Limited Edition will be on display at the INFINITI stand.

INFINITI QX SPORT INSPIRATION, Q60 3.0T SPORT AND VC-TURBO ENGINE TECHNOLOGY MAKE NORTH AMERICAN DEBUTS AT LA AUTO SHOW  'In a city known for its appreciation for great automotive design and environmental sustainability, INFINITI is delighted show the new design direction for our future SUVs, as well as the world's first variable compression ratio engine, for the first time in North America,' said Roland Krueger, president of INFINITI Motor Company.

    Flowing lines and advanced craftsmanship characterize the spacious and beautifully appointed interior, which gains kick plate lighting at the base of every door. The interior's color palette – predominantly black and white with flashes of the hide's natural tan color – is enhanced with sections added in brown leather.

    Transforming on demand, INFINITI's VC-Turbo technology uses an advanced multi-link system to seamlessly raise or lower the reach of the pistons, detecting the car's driving condition and driver inputs, and instantly selecting the most suitable compression ratio. The engine is able to offer any compression ratio between 8:1 (for high performance) and 14:1 (for high efficiency).

    In production form, the VC-Turbo engine is expected to have a power output of approximately 268 horsepower and 288 lb-ft torque, comparable to certain six-cylinder gasoline powertrains for performance while significantly outperforming them in efficiency.

    The four-cylinder VC-Turbo engine achieves lower levels of noise and vibration than conventional internal combustion engines, particularly diesel, and it is lighter and more compact than V6 units with comparable power outputs.

    INFINITI's VC-Turbo technology marks a significant leap forward for the internal combustion engine, joining other renowned powertrain innovations such as liquid cooling, fuel injection, catalytic convertors and turbocharging. The arrival of the variable compression ratio engine will establish new benchmarks – for power, efficiency and emissions – against which future powertrains will be measured.

    2017 INFINITI Q60 3.0t Sport

    For 2017, the Q60 is completely redesigned, benefiting from the very best of INFINITI styling, performance and technology. The Q60 reclaims its title as the brand's halo car and is the third chapter in a lineage of iconic INFINITI sport coupes, starting with the 2003 G35.

    The comprehensive update for 2017 includes a trio of all-new advanced turbocharged engines to expand market coverage, next-generation ride and handling technologies, and the very latest INFINITI infotainment and Safety Shield driver assistance systems.

    Designated by the silver 'S' model badge, the new Q60 3.0t Sport is the latest addition to the 2017 Q60 portfolio and is equipped with the new VR-series 3.0 liter V6 twin turbo engine featuring 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
