Last fall, the 2022 Infiniti QX60 сoncept was unveiled to the public, a car that embodies a “new style philosophy” designed to showcase some of the features of Japanese culture. And this June, the crossover was shown — a completely new model of a premium seven-seater SUV was created based on the style proposed by the Monograph concept.
One in four Infiniti vehicles sold in the US market today is a large three-row QX60 crossover. It is not surprising that when preparing the second-generation car, the Japanese concern tried to listen to the car owners and take into account the requests of potential buyers. Any criticism was taken into account, which led to an increase in body height by 30 mm, a change in the geometry of the seating of passengers in the second and third rows, and, as a result, an improvement in comfort. The ultimate goal of the 2022 Infiniti QX60 developers is to win the sympathy of Americans who are ready to spend money on a premium SUV and get not only an impeccably stylish, but also well-equipped car. Indeed, in comparison with its predecessor, the new Infiniti QX, due to a small change in body shape, looks more refined, and inside the crossover was equipped with many luxurious and comfortable details.
The new 2022 Infiniti QX60 2022 looks more like the QX50 crossover with its “inflated” wheel arches and narrowed optics. At the same time, the sharp edges on the hood disappeared, the window line became higher, the radiator grille received an original 3D structure, and the side air intakes of the front bumper became narrow. A black roof is available.
An almost radical redesign of the cabin, however, retained the three-row interior layout and seven full-fledged seats. In the Autograph option, two captain’s seats of the second row are provided, and in front, there are seats with 8 types of different adjustments, as well as with ventilation, heating, and massage features. Standard equipment includes dual-zone automatic climate control, but for an additional payment, it will be replaced with a three-circuit system with a purifier for air injected into the passenger compartment. The climate control is touch-sensitive though the rotating handles are also there. The SUV has a new 12.3-inch display of the InTouch media system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is a wireless device charging and seven USB ports in the cabin.
The interior trim of the premium crossover has become better: now it is high-quality semi-aniline leather and wood veneer, and instead of a cabin mirror, a display can be installed that shows the picture from the rearview camera.
The main change in the technical part of the 2022 Infiniti QX60 is the replacement of the variator with an automatic one. Now a petrol 3.5-liter V6 with 299 hp (366 Nm) will work together with a 9-speed automatic transmission, taken from the current Nissan Pathfinder. The replacement of the transmission was dictated mainly by the increase in the permissible mass of the towed trailer. With the transition to an automatic box, the figure was increased by 20%, ie, up to 6000 pounds.
The basic drive of the Japanese crossover is a front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is optional. 4×4 versions will be more expensive due to the installation of a new clutch, which has a better response speed. The multi-link suspension is still there, but the manufacturer decided to strengthen the brakes by increasing the diameter of the discs. The main safety technologies are adaptive headlights and traffic sign recognition.
The prices for the new 2022 Infiniti QX60 start with $45 000 for the Pure model, $47 000 for Luxe, $50 00 for Essential, $52 000 for Sensory, and $55 000 for the most luxurious Autograph model.
In the US, a new generation of the Infiniti QX60 SUV will be released by the end of 2021. It will be assembled in the Smyrna, Tennessee factory.
