NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The launch of the 2014 Infiniti Q50 here will be delayed by about a month as the sedan gets some engineering updates, Nissan Americas told Edmunds on Tuesday.

The 2014 Infiniti Q50 will arrive in U.S. dealerships on August 5.

The Q50 originally was due to launch in early July, according to a Q50 pricing announcement issued by Infiniti on June 25.

"The Infiniti Q50s are getting the latest updates from our engineers before they go on sale by August 5," wrote Kyle Bazemore, an Infiniti spokesman, in response to an e-mailed query. "It's adding only a couple of weeks to our original announcement of a July on-sale date."

Bazemore did not provide specifics on the engineering updates.

The Q50 replaces the G-series sedan under Infiniti's new naming system.

The redesigned and renamed 2014 Infiniti Q50 sedan starts at $37,605, including a $905 destination charge, reflecting a $650 price decrease over the outgoing 2013 Infiniti G37 Journey sedan.

The automaker said a special Q50 pre-sale program, announced at the 2013 New York Auto Show, closed June 30 with 3,650 orders.

"The Infiniti Q50 pre-sale exceeded all expectations, becoming the most successful such program in Infiniti history," said Ben Poore, Infiniti Americas vice president, in a statement on Monday.

Edmunds says: Launch delays are not unusual in the auto industry. In this case, Infiniti is determined to get it right, since the 2014 Q50 is arguably the most important vehicle in its lineup.
