The new generation of the Infiniti G is expected to surface in 2014, and here is a bunch of spy shots of one of the first prototypes. This mule uses the same bodywork of the current model which has been slightly modified in order the suit the technical changes of the next ‘G’.
These images come from Northern Sweden, and show us a car with a wider track and new air inlets on the front end, which can be spotted below the grille. These new intakes would have us believe that there’s a quite performing petrol powertrain hidden underneath the old dress as our photographers confirm that the sound of this car was definitely not the one of a diesel engine.
Besides, it is reported that this mule was coming in and out of a well known Mercedes facility, a clue that gives strength to the rumors that the next Infiniti G will use some engine developed by the German carmaker. It is known that the partnership agreement between Mercedes-Benz and Renault also includes the Infiniti brand, implying that Infinity will be using powerplants coming from the house of the three-pointed star in the next generation. However, we thought that it was mostly about diesel units, which Mercedes is especially famous for.
