Report: Infiniti G to Get Mercedes 4-Cylinder

The Infiniti G will in fact be powered by a 4-cylinder engine in the future says company CEO Carlos Ghosn, and that four-banger will come from Mercedes. Earlier this week when Mercedes parent company Daimler and Renault/Nissan announced a new partnership, the deal included the use of both 4-cylinder and V6 Mercedes powerplants in Infiniti models. One could presume these would be for the G, although there's also speculation that the 4-cylinder could be used in a new entry-level model that Infiniti is reportedly planning.

According to a report by InsideLine, the Mercerdes 4-cylinder is likely to be the entry level engine, slotting in even under the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that reports have suggested Infiniti will launch next year in a model called the Infiniti G25. It's possible the engine could be a 154-hp 1.8-liter supercharged engine currently used in Europe, although Mercedes has also been testing a supercharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder for the C-Class and is rumored to be working on a turbocharged 4-cylinder.

In terms of the upcoming entry-level Infiniti model, that vehicle will also be the result of a joint venture by both Infiniti and Mercedes and aimed at taking on the Audi A1 and BMW 1 Series.

As to whether all this cooperation might be bad for both brands, offering similar products to customers, Ghosn mentioned on a conference call that neither company sees it as an issue because Mercedes and Infiniti customers rarely cross-shop vehicles.
