Last night at a small holiday party in the Metro Detroit area, Infiniti rolled out the 2016 Q50 sedan in the high performance Red Sport 400 trimline, packing 400 horsepower from a new twin turbocharged V6 engine and the buyer’s choice of rear- or all-wheel drive – creating what should be a very entertaining luxury sedan.


The 2016 Infiniti Q50 sedan looks a great deal like the 2015 model, but there is a big difference under the hood. Where the 2015 models are only available with the 3.7L VQ series V6 with 328 horsepower and 269lb-ft of torque, that engine is gone from the lineup for 2016. Instead, a trio of new turbocharged engines will be offered for the new model year, including a 4-cylinder and a pair of V6 mills. The Hybrid model also continues on from 2015 to 2016.

While Infiniti offered up information on the entire 2016 Q50 range last night, the car on display was a new Q50 Red Sport 400. The heart of this sport sedan is a new twin turbocharged 3.0L V6 that delivers 400 horsepower and 350lb-ft of torque to either the rear wheels or all four wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission.
