2014 Infiniti Q50 To Sell Alongside G37 Sedan: Report

Follow Nelson

The Infiniti renaming scheme doesn't make a lot of sense from a "why" perspective, but it's not all that hard to get to the how--that is, which cars will be changing names. What might be even less difficult is deciding between a new 2014 Infiniti Q50 and a new G37 Sedan.

That will be a valid choice, for a while at least, as Infiniti is planning to sell the two cars side-by-side, according to Infiniti's Kyle Bazemore speaking with Autoblog.

The Q50 had been intended as a replacement for the G37 sedan, but Bazemore says "it ended up being much more than that."

With the 2014 Q50's price set at just $37,605, the newer, sexier, better-equipped car is about $600 cheaper than the G37 Sedan. While the outgoing G37 is a fine car, the new Q50 seems to be the no-questions pick.

On the other hand, Infiniti's choice to sell the two cars simultaneously hints at a possibility: the company may be planning to ship most of the initial Q50s in specifications significantly above base spec--meaning a higher price of entry. That would leave room for the G37 to be the brand's low-cost, entry-level car.

Whatever comes of the situation, you can expect the first 2014 Infiniti Q50s to hit dealerships August 5.
