After six years of the first-generation QX60, INFINITI’s three-row midsize SUV is ready for a full redesign in 2022. The all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 will boast a brand-new look inside and out, a new powertrain, new technology, and more. Unlike most vehicles, the QX60 will skip the 2021 model year altogether.
On the outside, the 2022 INFINITI QX60 takes on an all-new look that includes a more upright nose and sides, giving it a more SUV-like design. The profile, however, continues with its raked front and rear, adding the touch f sportiness INFINITI models have long been known for. INFINITI weaved origami-like touches into its revamped grille, which includes an embossed “INFINITI” logo. Around back, thin bar-style taillights give this crossover a sleek nighttime signature while a black connector gives the taillight assembly a one-piece look.
Inside, the INFINITI QX60 will take another step deeper into true luxury – something INFINITI has long struggled with – with its sleek and shapely dash, soft-touch materials, available semi-aniline leather upholstery, open-pore wood trim, double-stitch accents, and more. Also, every 2022 QX60 will include a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There will also be an available 10.8-inch head-up display.
Powering the 2022 INFINITI QX60 will be Nissan’s tried-and-true 3.5-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower. Backing this up will be an all-new nine-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive. With AWD equipped, the QX60 will tow up to 6,000 pounds – a 20% improvement.
Standard safety gear on the 2022 INFINITI QX60 will include reverse automatic braking, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and forward-collision warning. Also available will be adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlights, and more. IIHS ratings will come later, but we expect it to earn no less than the Top Safety Pick its current model earned.
Stay tuned for our full review.
