Nissan is finally working on a new Z car but over at Infiniti, they’re introducing the 2021 Q60.
Since this is just a model year update, changes are pretty small and include a revised color palette that now features Grand Blue and Slate Gray. The only other exterior change is newly standard rain-sensing wipers.
Despite the minor changes, prices have crept up as the 2021 Q60 Pure starts at $41,650 which is $300 more than last year’s model. It features a familiar twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that produces 300 hp (224 kW / 304 PS) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to a seven-speed automatic transmission which can be backed up by an optional all-wheel drive system for an additional $2,000.
Moving up the trim ladder is the Q60 Luxe which starts at $50,200. That’s $4,700 more than its predecessor, but the car now comes equipped with semi-aniline leather seats, a remote starter and a newly available Dynamic Sunstone Red exterior.
The coupe also gains a heated steering wheel, heated front seats and power lumber support for the driver. There’s also a host of driver assistance systems including blind spot warning, a surround view monitor, lane departure warning and forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
The range-topping Q60 Red Sport 400 returns, but prices climb $950 to $58,100. That’s a significant hike and there’s no new equipment to cushion the blow.
However, the car does have a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 that produces 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque. The model also features an adaptive suspension, beefier brakes and an upgraded cabin with carbon fiber trim.
The 2021 Infiniti Q60 is currently available to order and will arrive at U.S. dealerships before the end of the year.
Note: Prices exclude a $1,025 destination fee
