Seven-speed Automatic Transmission for 2011-Infiniti EX35

Infiniti declared a boost of $350 in price as it replaces the previous five-speed transmission with now new seven-speed transmission, for the new model Infiniti EX35. Price for EX35 is starting from $35025, with $875 as destination charges. Only minor changes took place in the new model so it remains fresh for the cross over buyers.

High-line EX35 is priced as $37225 for journey model with AWD and costs $38625 for rear-drive with AWB. Whereas, only adding AWD to the EX35 costs as $36425.

Although infinite came up with this change but they let engine stay on 297 horsepower with 3.5 liter V6. Advantage in seven-speed transmission would be the improvement in fuel consumption. Infiniti anticipates 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highways. It’s the same mileage rear-drive EX35 got in 2010 as well. However it is an improvement for all-wheel drive EX35, which was 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highways.

Other changes which are made for this new Infiniti EX35 are that it gets new white color scheme for gauges and LCD instruments and display. It also includes standard 18 inch wheels and tires whereas there were 17s which Infiniti offered previously. It is also equipped with standard dual zone automatic climate control. Infinite has also complimented their new model with variety of 3 colors, Midnight Garnet, Arctic Blue and Graphite shadow.

Blind spot Warning system is also a part of this new model. If opted for Deluxe touring, 18 inch tires will be replaced by 19 inch tires. Still Infiniti struggled to meet sales expectations and already down by 0.1 percent through September, selling 5853 units in the first nine months. It should also be noted that EX35 is not Infiniti’s best selling model, question arises that will these little changes made in the new model be enough to encourage the sales.
