The sole engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that develops 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). New liquid-filled engine mounts aim to reduce vibration. New 18- and 20-inch wheels are available.
Only one trim level is offered, with standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive. Fuel economy is estimated at 21/27 mpg (city/highway) with front-drive, but only 19/26 mpg with all-wheel drive.
Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, seating for seven, keyless entry and start, selectable driving modes, a backup camera, three-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, Bluetooth hands-free phone, and USB input. Also standard are heated power front seats, six-speaker audio, automatic headlights, power-folding heated mirrors, satellite radio, a power liftgate, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
As is typical with INFINITI, options are combined into packages. The available Premium Package includes 13-speaker Bose audio; memory settings for the driver's seat, mirrors and steering wheel; remote start; and roof rails. The Premium Plus package adds a navigation system with the INFINITI Connection, an 8-inch display, real-time traffic and voice recognition. Also included are front/rear parking sensors and an around-view monitor with moving object detection.
The Driver Assistance Package adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warning, forward collision warning, and backup collision intervention. For 2016, the prior Technology and Deluxe Touring packages have been combined into a Deluxe Technology Package that includes a number of active-safety functions, as well as a second moonroof, 20-inch alloy wheels, power-folding third-row seats, and cooled front seats.
Although QX60 pricing starts at $43,595 (including destination charge), total cost can escalate quickly. Unfortunately, the driver-assistance technologies are expensively package-priced, whereas some rivals make those features standard or offer them for a lower cost. Still, availability of those features helps make the QX60 a competitive three-row luxury crossover.
