2013 Infiniti EX37 Journey AWD Review: Engines and Fuel Economy
- The 2013 Infiniti EX37 gains a new V-6 engine whose increase displacement is reflected in the vehicle's name.
The 2013 Infiniti EX37 comes exclusively with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine that is all-new for the current model year. A variation of the power plant that is found under the hood of the G sedan and coupe, the motor can be relied on to produce 325 ponies and 267 lb-ft of torque, which is a considerable boost over the output of the now-departed model. Infiniti has managed to attain these new horsepower heights without sacrificing fuel economy, as the rear-wheel drive version of the vehicle turns in 17-mpg city and 25-mpg highway (a one mile per gallon improvement during steady-state cruising). All-wheel drive editions of the crossover match last year's 17-mpg city and 24-mpg highway ratings. During our time with the vehicle fuel mileage came in somewhat lower than the factory advertised figures, due largely to the amount of snow, ice, and wheel spin that the Infiniti had to deal with. A standard seven-speed automatic transmission handles the gear shifting duties for the EX37.
