Product Overview

Infiniti M-Series Mark III / Nissan Fuga (chassis code Y50) is an executive sedan in production from 2005 to 2010. It was available with a range of V6 and V8 engines that displaced 3.5 to 4.5 liters. This vehicle was also sold in Japan as Nissan Fuga.
At launch, the Gen3 M-Series was available with two venerable engines, the VQ35DE 3.5L V6 in M35 and the VK45DE 4.5L V8 in the M45. The AWD versions used Nissan's ATTESTA-ETS system that was RWD until slip is detected. These were sold as M35x and M45x.
Towards the end of the production run, Nissan upgraded the V6 engine and a 7-speed automatic transmission.
With this generation, Infiniti upgraded the M's chassis and suspension: It now uses double-wishbone front with multi-link rear suspensions, greatly improving performance and comfort.
