From Infiniti press: The sporty Infiniti G20 made its return to the Infiniti lineup last year as an all-new fun-to-drive luxury sports sedan. This year, the 2000 G20 continues to combine superb dynamic handling capabilities with exceptional passenger and cargo room, plus a long list of luxury features and amenities.
Refinements for 2000 include increased horsepower to 145 (versus 140 previous), increased torque to 136 ft-lbs. (versus 132 ft-lbs. previous), 100,000-mile tune-up interval, two new exterior colors (Millennium Jade and Midnight Blue), added auto-off function to headlights and anti-glare coating to outside mirrors. Additionally, the G20 now comes equipped with the Infiniti Vehicle Immobilizer System for added security.
The G20 is powered by an improved, high-revving 145-horsepower 16-valve dual overhead cam four-cylinder engine with a cross-engine mount system, which reduces idle vibration and acceleration noise. Along with the five increased horsepower, torque also increased four ft-lbs. to 136 ft-lbs. The engine also offers a 100,000-mile tune-up interval through the adoption of double-tipped platinum spark plugs.
A choice of standard 5-speed manual transmission or optional 4-speed automatic overdrive transmissions is available.
The G20 also delivers improved fuel economy ratings of 24 mpg City/31 mpg Highway with the 5-speed manual and 23 mpg City/30 mpg Highway for the 4-speed automatic equipped models.
