Both trims come equipped with an individual powertrain to get separate figures.
The 3.7 (V6) model comes equipped with a V6 unit from the VQ series with the displacement of 3.7 liters. This power plant would deliver the new Q70 the required power and torque of 330 ponies and 270 lbs per foot respectively. This powertrain accelerates the new sedan to a speed of 60 mph in 5.7 seconds assists it to get the top speed of 150 mph. With this power unit, the model offers the city, highway and combined mileage of 18, 26 and 21 mpg respectively.
On the other hand, the new Infiniti Q70 2017 5.6 (V8) model comes equipped with a more powerful V8 powertrain with the displacement of 5.7 liters.

Buyers who would like to have a significant fuel saving, but lose fewer horsepower, they can opt for the hybrid variant of the new model Q70. This is for the reason that the carmaker has already planned to include a hybrid variant for the 2017 model year. It comes equipped with a V6 traditional engine with the displacement of 3.5 liters with the name 3.5-l. This powertrain will offer it performance in conjunction with a durable electric motor, but the combination will offer less power than other the two power units. However, it offers more mileage than those powertrains that ranges from 30 to 35 mpg. A seven-velocity manual transmission system will be offered as standard, but the automaker has not yet confirmed whether the 2017 Infiniti Q70 hybrid variant will be offered with the automatic transmission system.
