2023 INFINITI QX50: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

INFINITI came out with the second-gen QX50 in 2019. To keep its compact SUV fresh, INFINITI is expected to come out with a refreshed QX50 in the second half of 2022. We’re not sure what INFINITI has in store for the 2023 QX50, but expect the SUV to arrive with a slightly updated design and a few more features.

The current QX50 strikes a good balance between being upscale and sporty. The SUV’s large grille, swept-back headlights, and angular front fascia help it stand out in the class. Body lines that start at the front of the SUV travel along the sides, connecting with the rear fender. A modest rear spoiler, triangular taillights, and a curvy liftgate give the QX50 a sporty look at the back. A refresh should see the 2023 QX50 arrive with an updated design with new lighting, sharper design elements, new wheels, and new paint schemes.

On the inside, the QX50 shows its age with a dual-screen setup. There are plenty of physical buttons and dials to use, but they don’t necessarily make the infotainment system intuitive. The rest of the cabin fits in with the luxury segment, with sweeping lines, premium materials, and a quiet interior. We could see the 2023 INFINITI QX50 arrive with an updated center console with just a single screen, though that seems unlikely. More premium materials, a larger digital instrument cluster, and redesigned seats are things we could see with the 2023 model’s refresh.

The current QX50 comes well-equipped on the tech front with an eight-inch and seven-inch touchscreens, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, voice recognition, six audio speakers, and five USB ports. Available features include a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, and a 16-speaker Bose audio system. We expect the 2023 QX50 to arrive with more tech features like a larger digital instrument cluster, updated infotainment systems, and wireless Android Auto compatibility.

INFINITI offers the QX50 with a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with variable compression. The engine is rated at 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. We expect the engine to remain the same for the 2023 model year, but the SUV’s continuously variable automatic transmission could be updated for better performance. The QX50 will continue to be available with front-wheel and all-wheel drive.

For the compact class, the current QX50 comes with a lengthy list of standard safety features. We don’t expect INFINITI to make any changes to the SUV’s safety equipment for 2023. Forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, forward and reverse automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high-beam assist, rear parking sensors, and INFINITI’s ProPilot Assist system are all standard. The SUV is available with a head-up display, traffic sign recognition, and a surround-view parking camera.

Pricing & Release Date

The refreshed 2023 INFINITI QX50 is expected to arrive in the second half of the year.

Depending on the extent of the refresh, the SUV is expected to have a similar price range to the current model that's on sale. Pricing for the current QX50 ranges from $40,175 to $58,125 (prices include destination).

The 2023 INFINITI QX50 will compete against the Lexus NX, Acura RDX, Genesis GV70, and Volvo XC60.
