Attendees at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit were abuzz about the dramatic launch of INFINITI’s stunning and technologically groundbreaking QX50 Crossover Concept.

New VC-Turbo A Technological Marvel.

The gorgeous QX50 marks a significant engineering accomplishment for INFINITI, as the automaker debuted its radical new 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine that will power the QX50 and other vehicles. The world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio engine was designed as an alternative to existing hybrid and diesel engines.

The 268-hp, in-line, four-cylinder VC-Turbo Variable Compression powerplant achieves superior efficiency by adapting its compression ratio to adjust for different driving conditions. It, therefore, delivers an optimal balance of performance and fuel economy while providing a high level of efficiency and torque. Additionally, the VC-Turbo is projected to be 27% more efficient than comparable V6 engines.

According to Roland Krueger, president of INFINITI Motor Company, “The pioneering VC-Turbo powertrain represents a leap forward for engine development. Vehicle engineers believe the breakthrough in internal combustion technology would come from mastering the variable compression ratio. This new technology will be available in new INFINITI models from 2018.” Continue Reading →

Five Professional Athletes From Columbus, Ohio

With the Buckeyes in town, Columbus has become known for fostering world class athletes who come from all parts of the nation, but did you know that there are a number of famous athletes that are from the Columbus, Ohio area? Let’s take a look at a few across different sports.

Archie Griffin: Running Back

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.58.25 PM

The only college football player to ever win the Heisman Trophy twice, Archie Griffin was a star during his time as a Buckeye, where he amassed 19 awards and has since had his number (45) retired, and broke both the all-time rushing and consecutive 100-yard rushing game records held at the time. The Columbus native played in the NFL for seven years for the Cincinnati Bengals, and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Jack Nicklaus: Professional Golfer

Considered by many to be the greatest golfer of all time, Nicklaus was born and raised in Columbus, and was also a Buckeye. He has garnered 73 PGA tour victories throughout his 39 year professional career is the third best among golfers all-time and has earned him a host of awards and a well deserved spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

Simone Biles: Gymnast

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.59.07 PM

Born in Columbus in 1997, Simone Biles has quickly become the face of American Gymnastics. With enough medals to match her age, the nineteen year-old has dominated at both the World Championships and the Olympic Games, and will look to add to that number in the years to come.

Jesse Owens: Track and Field

Although not born here, Jesse Owens moved to Columbus at the age of nine years old, where he grew up and attended Ohio State. He broke the world records for 220-yard sprint, 220-yard low hurdles, and long jump during his time as a Buckeye. He also won gold medals in the long jump, 100 meter, 200 meter, and 4×100 meter relay in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games.

Paul O’Neill: Right Fielder

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 3.59.42 PM

O’Neill played baseball at Brookhaven High School in his hometown of Columbus, and later moved to Westerville to attend Otterbein College. He ultimately played in the major leagues for seventeen years for both the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees, winning World Series titles with both clubs. A five-time MLB All-Star and the 1994 American League batting champion, O’Neill had a stellar career and certainly did his home state proud.

Top 10 Ways To Have The Ultimate Tailgate Party

The Fall football season is just around the corner. If you’re a rabid Ohio State Buckeye fan as we are here at Germain INFINITI of Easton, your preferred Columbus INFINITI dealer, then we’ll bet you’re already making plans to throw the most awesome tailgate parties ever.

But before you clean your BBQ grill, stock up on burgers, hot dogs, frosty beverages, and potato salad, check out our handy “how-to” guide with 10 steps for creating the ultimate tailgate experience.

columbus-oh-buckeyes-football

  1. Get Organized – Spending a little time organizing your tailgate party will make it a winner. Make a list of everything you’ll need, from napkins and plates to burgers and buns. Then check off the items before packing things up.
  2. Know The Rules – Whether you’re heading to the Horseshoe or your hometown high school, be sure to find out what is permitted and what isn’t. Know if such things as alcoholic beverages, BBQ grills, and other items are allowed. By checking out the stadium’s regulations beforehand, you’ll save headaches when you arrive. Review the stadium’s parking map to find out where tailgating is permitted.
  3. Maximize Your Space – Here’s a smart tip: freeze a bunch of water bottles and use them in the cooler instead of ice. You’ll keep everything cold, save space, and won’t have to lug around heavy bags of ice.
  4. Finger Foods Work Better – Prepare a lot of bite-size finger foods in advance. They are easier to transport and handle. Most supermarkets offer pre-made party trays for just such an occasion.
  5. Time It Right – We all know that stadiums are going to be jam-packed on game day. So it’s a must to give yourself plenty of time to set up and get ready for fun. Get to the stadium about three to four hours before kickoff. To save you post-game traffic hassles, hang around awhile. Set out chairs, drinks, and leftovers and rehash the game while waiting for the traffic to clear.
