The G37 Coupe rolls into 2013 with only minor cosmetic changes and news that the base model has been dropped. It's now available in a pair of trim levels: Journey and Sport. Both feature a 3.7-liter V6 that cranks out 330 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, but that's where their paths diverge.
The luxurious Journey comes standard with a seven-speed shiftable automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional. Standard amenities include leather upholstery, eight-way power seats and a premium audio system.
The athletic Sport comes only in rear-wheel drive and uses a close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission. It stays true to its name by adding a limited-slip differential, sport-tuned steering and sport-tuned suspension. In Sport trim, the G37 Coupe reaches 60 mph in 5.7 seconds.
The Sport Package tosses in 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, a limited-slip differential, sport brakes and a sport-tuned steering gear. The Technology Package adds Intelligent Cruise Control, Brake Assist, Advanced Climate Control, rain-sensing wipers and Pre-Crash Seat Belts. The Interior Accent Package gets you maple interior accents throughout the cabin. The Performance Tire and Wheel Package, finally, comes with 19-by-8.5-inch wheels and performance tires.
