2020 INFINITI QX50: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The INFINITI QX50 went through two huge changes in recent years. First came its wheelbase stretch in 2017 to make the rear seat acceptable for adults, then came a full redesign in 2019. Because the paint is still damp on the refresh, we expect the 2020 INFINITI QX50 to be a carryover model.

Visually, we expect the carryover 2020 INFINITI QX50 to be identical to the current model. This new styling is right in line with INFINITI’s new design language and with buyer demand. There could be small tweaks like new colors or wheels, but the overall appearance, which includes the new INFINITI double-arch grille, clamshell hood, signature crescent-cut D-pillar, and LED lighting, will remain. We expect the same inside as the new-generation Q50 has one of the premier cabins for its class and price.

Because we expect no changes when the 2020 INFINITI QX50 hits showrooms, we also anticipate the same line of standard features. If this proves true, look for the 2020 QX50 to come standard with leatherette upholstery, 19-inch wheels, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, keyless ignition, a dual-screen infotainment system, six-speaker audio system, SiriusXM, and more. Plus, there will be plenty of trims and options to dress the QX50 up.


We also anticipate no changes to the 2020 QX50’s greasy bits. If this is accurate, we will see the same 2.0-liter Variable Compression Turbo four-cylinder that injects 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. This power will route through a continuously variable transmission that delivers power to the front wheels as standard. Buyers will be able to add optional all-wheel drive.

The IIHS has yet to send a new-generation QX50 hurtling toward a wall with a load of crash-test dummies inside, so there are no official safety ratings yet. That said, the current model has standard forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and rearview camera, so it’s simple to stay out of harm’s way. We expect these to carry over unchanged in the 2020 QX50.

Pricing and Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 INFINITI QX50, but we expect it to follow the current model’s release schedule. This pencils it in for a spring 2019 launch. Stay tuned for updates on this.

Since we expect no changes, we also expect pricing to remain similar to the current model’s $37,545 to $46,145 MSRP (destination fees included).

The 2020 QX50 will battle the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, and Cadillac XT5.
