2020 INFINITI Q50 Power & Handling

In the 2020 model year, the Q50’s standard engine is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged that generates up to 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful version of this engine is available creating 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. This engine block was created entirely out of aluminum which increases responsiveness and reduces overall weight. Rear-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain configuration for the Q50 but Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available. This drivetrain monitors speed, throttle, and wheelspin and is able to send up to 50% of the available power to the front wheels for enhanced tractions. When the AWD system is not needed, all power is sent to the rear wheels for a classic sports car feel. The Q50 also boasts INFINITI Drive Mode Selector that allows you to tailor the sedan’s performance to your driving style. Both engine options are mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
