The all- new 3.0 - liter V 6 twin- turbo engine, from the new 'VR' powertrain family, is the most advanced V6 engine that INFINITI has ever offered, striking an ideal balance between drivability, efficiency, and performance.
The new engine, 'VR30 DDTT' was created through extensive in-house experience of six-cylinder powertrain development. The 'VQ' V6 powertrain family, predecessor to 'VR', has been a long- established and multi-award winning series of engines that has appeared in INFINITI models since 1994.
The compact and lightweight engine has been developed to deliver optimal power and torque for an engine of its size, as well as high levels of fuel efficiency. The engine is available with either 400 or 300 horsepower, with power and torque accessible across a broad spread of mid-range engine speeds in which drivers typically spend most of their time.
Peak power from the 400 hp engine (298 kW, 405 ps) arrives at 6,400 rpm, producing 475 Nm (350 lb-ft) torque at 1,600-5,200 rpm. With the highest power-to-efficiency ratio of any car in the premium sports coupe class, the Q60 is capable of 22 mpg (US combined, rear-wheel drive; 21 mpg all-wheel drive).
The 300hp engine (224kW, 304ps) produces its peak power also at 6,400rpm, and up to 400Nm (295lb-ft) torque across the same broad 1,600-5,200 rpm rev range. These outputs have been achieved while delivering 22mpg (US combined, rear-wheel drive; 22mpg all-wheel drive).
