2006 Infiniti G Sedan news, pictures, specifications, and information

A powerful V6 generates it. A sophisticated 5-speed automatic or short-throw 6-speed manual transmission translates it into forward thrust. All while an available intelligent AWD system distributes it to all four wheels. The only piece that's missing is your right foot, pressing firmly on the accelerator.

The bond between driver and car is directly related to the bond between car and road. The G35 ensures the strength of this relationship wîth its performance platform, an available all-wheel drive model, and for the most demanding enthusiasts, a sport-tuned suspension package.

Honed in an advanced rolling-road wind tunnel like those used for Formula One race cars, the G35 is shaped to manage the flow of air both above and below the vehicle, making it practically invisible to the elements. At the same time, zero-lift front aerodynamics* helps it hug the road.

Leather appointments surround. Genuine aluminum or available Rosewood provides dramatic accents. Of course, being a sport sedan, the ultimate charge is to engage the driver and intensify the driving experience. Furthering these goals are a performance driver's seat and §teering wheel that adjusts wîth the gauges for control and complete comfort.

Únlock and start the vehicle without even taking the key from your pocket. Then, let satellites guide you to your destination wîth pinpoint accuracy and keep the music playing all the way across the country.

While the G35's responsive performance helps it maneuver out of harm's way, backing it up is an array of state-of-the-art accident avoidance technologies. Sensors monitor your steered path and can brake individual wheels to help keep you on that path. Brake Assist can help you stop quicker in emergency situations. An equally impressive set of occupant protection features, such as seat belts that tighten themselves during certain types of collisions, help you withstand what you can't avoid.

2006 Infiniti G35 Sedan Offers Pulse-Raising Performance, Sport Styling Inside and Out

The G35 Sport Sedan expresses Infiniti's bold direction of combining leading-edge design and technology, driver-oriented performance and a high level of luxury. For 2006, the G35 adds Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System and optional satellite radio to the Premium Package and a new exterior color – Liquid Platinum.

The rear-wheel drive G35 is powered by an advanced, 280-horsepower V6 engine mated to a choice of 5-speed automatic transmission wîth manual shift mode or 6-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) With the manual transmission the engine is tuned to deliver 298 horsepower. The G35's performance is enhanced by a 4-wheel independent suspension wîth lightweight aluminum components and highly aerodynamic styling – including a coefficient of drag of just 0.27 and zero degrees of front lift.

The G35 is also offered wîth a state-of-the-art 'intelligent' all-wheel drive system. The G35x AWD model features Infiniti's ATTESA E-TS (Advanced Total Traction Engineering System for All Electronic Torque Split) all-wheel drive system, which is also utilized on the M35x, FX and G35x sedan.

'Since its inception in 2002, the G35 has been our best selling model, it's one of the top performers in class and the recipient of numerous top rankings in enthusiast magazine head-to-head comparison tests,' said Mark Igo, vice president and general manager, Infiniti Division. 'The G35 sedan is in a class of its own and a true all star.'

A Sporty, Dynamic Exterior
The exterior styling continues to express the G35's strong balance between sportiness and function. The low, aggressive hoodline, wîth restyled, lightweight aluminum hood, flows into the sharply angled windshield and contributes to the G35's sporty, powerful silhouette. The front fascia features a revised grille, new front bumper design and new headlight lens wîth integrated fog lights and turn signals.

A smooth visual line flows from the front end and front fenders through the side profile, while the C-pillar and rear fenders accentuate the spaciousness of the cabin. The large greenhouse provides good visibility from all seating positions. The new rear fascia is highlighted by the redesigned rear combination lamps wîth LED taillights. The LED lights provide maintenance-free operation and bright visual recognition for following drivers during braking.

The 2006 G35 continues to utilize the racing technology-inspired FM (Front Mid-ship) platform, which mounts the engine behind the front axle in the 'front mid-ship' position. The positioning of the engine is a key to the G35's high level of driving performance, providing a nearly optimized 53:47 percent front-to-rear-weight balance.

This layout also features a long wheelbase (112.2 inches) and short front and rear overhangs, providing a large interior for its highly manageable overall length (186.5 inches) and excellent interior space utilization. A wide front and rear track adds to the G35's overall handling stability and further enhances interior and trunk volume.

The FM platform design also places a strong emphasis on aerodynamics. The G35 has a coefficient of drag measurement of just 0.27 (0.26 wîth optional rear spoiler) for reduced wind noise and optimized fuel economy. The design also emphasizes the control of airflow under the body. The extensive use of diffusers and deflectors helps the G35 achieve zero front lift (0.0 clf), reducing drag and noise and contributing to vehicle stability. With the optional rear spoiler and rear diffusers/fairings, zero rear lift is also achieved.

The G35 is offered in eight exterior colors, including a new color for 2006, Liquid Platinum.

A Driver-Oriented Interior Design
The G35's interior offers a high quality look and feel, along wîth a driver-oriented instrument panel and console area. The interior materials and textures provide a rich impression and the use of real aluminum and wood-tone trim provides a degree of authenticity to the interior. Available wood accents (Wood Trim Package) consist of a straight-grained Rosewood. A choice of three interior colors are available, including Stone (gray), Wheat (beige) and Graphite (black) to allow a wide choice for customers. Every 2006 G35 comes wîth standard leather-appointed seating.

Examples of the G35's combination of sportiness and comfort can be found throughout the spacious (98.0 cubic feet) interior. The driver's seat uses a special center mound shape wîth high damping urethane foam and special spring design to support the driver during sporty driving, while the front passenger's seat has a flatter-shaped lower cushion and the seat is shaped to provide a relaxed posture. In the rear, the G35 offers a choice of wide bucket-shaped seats or optional rear reclining seats, both wîth ample knee room, and a pass-through armrest. The G35 trunk measures a full 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space.

A three-spoke §teering wheel provides a firm grip and sporty feel and the instrument panel features Infiniti's Fine Vision electro-fluorescent illumination system and signature analog clock. The optional DVD-based Infiniti Navigation System includes a 7.0-inch retractable screen. Audio systems include a standard 6-speaker AM/FM wîth in-dash 6-disc CD changer wîth mp3 playback capability and an optional Bose® premium audio system wîth an AM/FM/ in-dash 6-disc CD changer wîth RDS, 7 speakers, speed-sensitive volume control and §teering wheel audio controls.

New for 2006, the Premium Package adds a Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System and optional satellite radio wîth choice of XM® or Sirius™ services.

A Choice of Rear-Wheel or All-Wheel Drive
The G35 has been noted, since its introduction, for its outstanding balance of acceleration and handling. The heart of G35's performance is its standard 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve V6, derived from the VQ engine series, which has been recognized as one of the 'Ten Best Engines' by Ward's Auto World magazine for 11 consecutive years.

The standard V6 engine produces 280* horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque for models equipped wîth the advanced 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission wîth manual shift mode. The 2006 G35 6MT model wîth close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission features 298 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

The VQ engine design includes a long list of advanced systems, including a continuously variable valve timing control system, a 'noiseless' timing chain for quiet operation, a structurally reinforced aluminum engine block and an electronically controlled 'drive-by-wire' throttle system. It also features a modular engine design, microfinished crank journals and cam lobes, and molybdenum coated lightweight pistons.

Along wîth its advanced engine design, the G35 is also offered wîth a state-of-the-art 'intelligent' all-wheel drive system. The system utilizes an active torque distribution management system wîth an active center differential designed for smooth starts, better fuel economy and better traction and maneuverability on snowy roads than conventional all-wheel drive systems and minimal compromise of rear-wheel drive performance characteristics on dry roads.

The system's advanced torque split control strategy automatically transfers optimum torque to the wheels according to road and driving conditions. It provides outstanding cornering capability similar to a sports car due to optimum torque distribution to the front and rear wheels (50:50 up to 0:100).

The system also provides high starting traction performance and smooth, stable acceleration, especially in snow-covered or adverse road situations wîth the driver-selectable Snow-Mode switch, which allows the driver to fix the torque distribution ratio at 50:50 and reduces throttle sensitivity to improve performance at low speeds on slippery roads as desired.

All 2006 G35s, rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, come wîth Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), helping to enhance vehicle stability under a variety of driving conditions.

The G35's advanced braking system utilizes power-assisted 4-wheel vented disc brakes. The system also includes 4-channel, 4-sensor Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD), which distributes brake force depending on load condition (passengers and cargo) and Brake Assist (BA), which senses hard or panic pedal application and helps provide maximum braking capacity and Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS), which uses the ABS sensors to detect wheel spin and applies braking to the spinning wheel.

The 2006 G35's high level of sporty handling is provided by a standard 4-wheel independent multi-link suspension design. The front suspension minimizes alignment changes through use of two separate lower links and a long upper link.
The rear design separates the shock absorbers and springs, locating the shock absorber inline wîth the wheel center to help reduce suspension friction and reduce the wind-up motion of the axle on acceleration.

The 2006 G35 features standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels wîth P215/55R17 tires on automatic transmission models and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and P235/45R18 tires on the 6-speed manual transmission model. The 18-inch wheels and tires and Viscous Limited-Slip Differential are optionally available on rear-wheel drive models wîth automatic trasmission as part of the Sport-Tuned Suspension package. A Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) is standard on all 2006 G35s.

A Long List of Standard Safety Features
All 2006 G35s come equipped wîth the Advanced Air Bag System wîth dual-stage supplemental air bags wîth seat belt sensors and RF occupant classification sensor, front-seat side-impact supplemental air bags and roof-mounted side-impact curtain air bags for front- and rear-seat occupant head protection. Also standard are 3-point ALR/ELR seat belts (driver's side ELR only) and front seat belts wîth pretensioners and load limiters and adjustable upper anchors and front seat Active Head Restraints. It is also equipped wîth the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren) system.

The G35 also features Zone Body Construction wîth front and rear crushable zones to help disperse crash energy around the passenger compartment.

The FM platform provides a number of innovative safety performance features, including a mechanism for releasing the engine downward in certain collisions, and a breakaway driveshaft helping prevent the intrusion of the engine into the passenger compartment and brake pedal construction that helps prevent rearward pedal movement and lower leg injuries.

G35 Availability and Equipment
The 2006 Infiniti G35 is available in three models – G35, G35x AWD and G35 6MT. The G35 and G35x AWD come wîth standard 5-speed automatic transmission and manual shift mode wîth downshift rev matching and 17-inch wheels and tires. The G35 6MT model features a close-ratio 6-speed manual, 18-inch wheels and tires, Viscous Limited-Slip Differential, sport-tuned suspension and higher horsepower engine tuning. All 2006 G35 models include leather-appointed interiors and a long list of standard comfort and convenience features.

Several available optional packages allow the buyer to custom-equip the 2006 G35 to further reflect his or her exact driving style and tastes.
