Infiniti announced the pricing and specs of the new 2016 Infiniti Q50 3.0t models, a range consisting of four cars each powered by the firm’s all-new 300-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo engine. Prices for this sporty new Q50 start at $39,900 for the rear- and $41,900 for the all-wheel-drive version.

While quite like the idea of a twin-turbo V6, we have to the power output Infiniti’s unit delivers is hardly impressive. These days with a displacement of three liters and two turbochargers you can get loads more horsepower than 300. Heck, you get that much these days from a turbo four-pot. But hey, Infiniti says they have also priced the 3.0t like a four-cylinder model.

They say that, but a fully-loaded Infiniti Q50 3.0t in Sport trim and with all-wheel-drive will set you back $45,900. You can knock two grand off that price by omitting the AWD and four grand by stepping down to the Premium trim level. You can do without the all-wheel-drive, but it is highly recommended to get your 3.0t in Sport trim because that where all the good stuff is.

2016 Infiniti Q50 3.0t Sport comes with updated Direct Adaptive Steering system and driver-selectable Dynamic Digital Suspension, sport styled front fascia, 19-inch sport wheels, larger sport brakes, leather-appointed sport seats, aluminum-accented pedals and solid magnesium paddle shifters.
