Infiniti has developed a reputation in recent years for staying the course, oftentimes letting its aging models soldier on with few changes. That won’t be the case with the 2022 Infiniti QX60, however, which represents an all-new, three-row luxury crossover with fresh styling inside and out, as well as a host of luxury and technology features that will help the new QX60 better compete with its rivals, which includes the Lincoln Aviator.
The 2022 Infiniti QX60 doesn’t reinvent the wheel in terms of styling but does present a different take on the automaker’s signature design elements. Inside, an also familiar style is enhanced with materials like semi-aniline leather and open-pore wood trim, which adorn the cabin of the newly available Autograph trim. Other niceties include a standard panoramic moonroof, ambient lighting, and “zero-gravity” front seats that Infiniti says replicate “the experience felt by astronauts in zero-gravity conditions.”
Inside the cabin, the new QX60 touts a new, standard 12.3-inch infotainment screen with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto compatibility, an available wireless charging pad, onboard Wi-Fi hot spot, a 10.8-inch head-up display, available Smart Rear-View Mirror, and an available 17-speaker Bose audio system.
The QX60 will also come with a revised version of Infiniti’s ProPilot Assist with Navi Link that slows the vehicle down around sharp curves, provides steering and braking assistance on the highway, and automatically adjusts speed to stay within the posted limits.
The 2022 QX60 is powered by Infiniti’s naturally-aspirated 3.5L V6 that is rated to produce 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, which is mated to an all-new 9-speed transmission. Available in front- or intelligent all-wheel-drive configurations, the crossover can tow up to 6,000 pounds.
The all-new 2022 Infiniti QX60 will launch in North American in late 2021. The automaker will announce pricing, along with more details about its brand new luxury crossover, closer to its on-sale date.
