2022 INFINITI QX50: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The second-generation INFINITI QX50 debuted in 2019, so it’s entering just its fourth model year since a complete redesign. With this model still relatively fresh, we expect the 2022 QX50 to be a carryover model.

As a carryover, we expect the 2022 INFINITI QX50 to continue with the same design it’s had since 2019. This will include a sleek and sporty body with swooping body lines, thin headlight and taillights, the signature D-pillar kink, and a large INFINITI grille.

Inside, we expect much of the same as we see in today’s QX50. This will include its sporty three-spoke steering wheel, dual-screen infotainment system, upscale materials, optional quilted seats, room for up to five people, and more.

Powering the 2022 QX50, we expect to see the same 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. We expect this power to head through the same continuously variable transmission (CVT) and out to the front wheels as standard. All-wheel drive will remain an option.

All current QX50’s come standard with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear automatic braking. Upgrade to the LUXE or higher trim, and you get standard lane-keeping assist, steering assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot collision intervention, and more. The IIHS hasn’t fully tested the current QX50 yet, so there are no crash test scores. We expect the standard safety gear to remain the same in the 2022 QX50.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2022 QX50, but we expect a fall 2021 release based on previous model years.

Pricing is also unclear. As a carryover model, though, we don’t expect a dramatic shift from the current model’s MSRP range of $39,075 to $57,975 (destination fees included).

This compact luxury crossover will compete against the Audi Q5, Cadillac XT5, and Lincoln Corsair.
