Nissan sparked a revolution in 2001 with the release of its VQ35DE engine, which found its home initially in their Pathfinder and Infiniti Q4X SUV models. But it wasn't until two years later when many car lovers got behind the famous powerplant: following an update by Nissan for use on 350Zs and G35s, drivers around North America praised the motor's performance so much that Ward’s included it on their list of 10 best engines from 2002 to 2007! In response to this resounding approval, Renault decided to put modernized versions of said engine onto most cars they produced during this period.
The Nissan 3.5L is used in various Nissan applications, including the Pathfinder, Altima, Maxima, 350Z, Murano, and Quest. It was also used in the Infiniti QX4, I35, G35, FX35, and M35.
