Next-gen Infiniti G-series to launch Spring 2013 - report

The current generation Infiniti G-series has been on the market since the G37 Coupe was launched back in 2007. Therefore, it is time for the Luxury brand of Nissan to start working on a successor. A report compiled by Inside Line has stated engineers are much further ahead. In fact, the model is due to hit dealerships in less than a year.

The news arrives following an interview with Andy Palmer, executive vice president of Nissan and Infiniti's Global Business Unit. He confirmed "the new G will arrive a year from now," which directly contradicts a previous report that said the new generation was slated for a summer 2014 release.

Infiniti G-series' chief rivals include the Mercedes C-Class and BMW 3-series. The latter of which has already been launched with a new generation model and may have caused Infiniti to accelerate their plans.

Infiniti has entered into an engine sharing agreement with Mercedes-Benz that could see the G-series share some of the same units that power the new C-Class. There are even rumors that the competing models will also ride on the same platform.

Should the rumors turn out to be true, we should expect the first model of the G-series to debut in Detroit in January next year.

I hope the next G is a 2014 model. The current G sports coupe and sport sedan models are very sexy cars. No need to rush with a redesign. They are selling extremely well, and as the old saying goes- if it aint broke dont fix it. I think they should focus on a final run of limited edition models with every option Infiniti can offer including the IPL engine. I saw a malbec black limited edition G37xS sedan with monaco red interior with the aero kit in person, and that car became my new favorite "affordable" luxury car. I just dont see how Infiniti can improve upon that car in the looks department. Most like since they are merging with Mercedes, then they will follow their trend toward overpriced, overpowered, but ugly cars.
