Rear A “concept” was shown last September, The significantly redesigned 2022 Infiniti QX60 It was finally revealed. From the inside out, this is a huge design improvement. It has a more traditional SUV appearance, a more modern and luxurious interior, and is equipped with the infotainment system of the past decade.
As expected, the mass production QX60 looks like this concept, which is good in our book. It has a more square, more confident shape, but still with the brand’s iconic curve details. However, the new two-tone paint is only suitable for top Autograph decorations.Interestingly, the wheelbase of the new QX60 is It replaces the cross, Although it is generally two inches shorter and about an inch taller. Perhaps not surprising, the internal dimensions of the QX60 do not seem to have changed much. Only the cargo space was announced. Although the space after the third row was folded by 1.4 cubic feet, the space behind the first and third rows was reduced by 0.4 to 1.4 cubic feet, respectively.
However, space is not the real internal weakness of the QX60-that is in an extremely outdated design. Fortunately, the new model threw everything from the old model out of the window. It now has a low and smooth dash that helps provide a more airy feel. It has stylish full-width vents. As shown in the picture above, the Autograph trim with semi-aniline quilted leather and perforated wood trim is particularly attractive. The infotainment system has been updated with a 12.3-inch touch screen. Optional 12.3-inch instrument screen and 10.8-inch head-up display. Infiniti It also adds additional sound insulation. Standard features include panoramic sunroofs, three-zone automatic climate control, eight-way electric heated seats, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto and seven-seater seats. Autograph replaced the bench in the second row with the captain’s chair.
Powering the new QX60 is a tried-and-tested 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces the same 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque as before.But, just like its cousin Nissan Pathfinder, It’s now connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which also Towing capacity increased to 6,000 pounds. Front-wheel drive is standard, all trim levels provide all-wheel drive. Infiniti said that the all-wheel drive system has been redesigned to engage faster and can transmit half of the engine’s power to the rear wheels. Through all-wheel drive, the QX60 also has a brake-based torque vectoring system that can help adjust which rear wheel gets power.
The new QX60 will go on sale later this year. Pricing has not yet been announced, but as a reference, the current model starts at approximately $45,000. We hope that the new one will be close.
