We calculate the decay widths and branching ratios of the extra neutral boson Z’ predicted by the 331 dilepton model in the framework of two different particle contents. These calculations are performed taking into account oblique radiative corrections and flavor changing neutral currents (FCNC) under the ansatz of Matsuda as a texture for the quark mass matrices. Contributions of the order of 10-1–10-2 are obtained in the branching ratios, and the partial widths about one order of magnitude bigger in relation with other 331 models are also obtained. A Landau-like pole arises at 3.5 TeV considering the full particle content of the minimal dilepton model (MDM), where the exotic sector is considered as a degenerate spectrum at the 3 TeV scale. The Landau pole problem can be avoided at the TeV scales if a new leptonic content running below the threshold at 3 TeV is implemented as suggested by other authors.
