The QX60, a name changed since year 2014 from the previous QX70, that not-so-much practical luxury, crossover, now seeks to become more family-friendly. Though still employing a three-row seating just like its other co-Infiniti SUV Models, its overall design and features are somewhat closer to Nissan Pathfinder, its U.S. showroom relative.
Having a more rounded front-end design, the Infiniti QX60 also comes with new bixenon LED Daytime running lights and a new grille, along with a larger Infiniti Logo. The lower fascia, compared to the previous models, is redesigned and also includes LED fog lights. Looking at the rear, there are also some nice modifications to the tail lights, hatch and bumpers. Further improvements include Nose, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) Suppression by adding acoustic side glass and having returned the engine mounts. The company had also revised the suspension with new springs and dampers, therefore further improving ride quality, while promising reduced body roll at the same time.
The engine, on the other hand, is still the tried-and-tested 3.5-liter VQ V-6, 265-hp and 248 lb-ft torque engine. However, a hybrid engine is also available, featuring a supercharged 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with an electric motor that runs in 250 horsepower and 243 lb-ft torque. It could also come along with a Front- or All-Wheel Drivetrain.
Just as I have mentioned earlier, it’s a close relative of the Nissan Pathfinder. Expect the same interior design and features on the 2016 Infiniti QX60.
