We’ve recently gained a closer look at the upcoming production version of the 2022 INFINITI QX60, which will be an impressive SUV to drive.
If you’re looking for an SUV with three rows of seats and the sporty build that comes from this brand, the QX60 could be perfect for you. Entering the next model year, this SUV will bring you a smoother drive from the powertrain.
More Luxury on the Road
Previous versions of the INFINITI QX60 had the impressive 3.5-liter V6 engine that has become a staple in the Nissan brands, but they didn’t have the transmission that’s being offered for 2022. Entering the second generation and a new model year, this SUV will gain a new nine-speed automatic transmission, which will allow for smoother shifting and a better ride when you’re behind the wheel. This is a crossover you want to take for a drive and just keep on going.
Expected Styling of the INFINITI QX60
The luxury expectations of the INFINITI brand will be fulfilled in the new QX60. Even while wearing the camouflage that’s meant to hide the lines, we can see this SUV will have narrow headlights, a large front grille, and the rear fenders that crease to invite the rear wing-like taillights that will give this SUV the style desired. Even though the QX60 shares a platform with the Nissan Pathfinder, it will certainly stand out for you.
Added Benefits of the New Transmission
The new nine-speed automatic transmission offers a 10:1 ratio spread which gives the INFINITI QX60 the performance you desire. Not only will you find a smoother ride when traveling during your commute or with the family for a weekend, but this feature allows for quicker off-the-line performance and better highway fuel mileage with ultra-low ratios.
This system is a shift-by-wire setup and it brings you five different drive modes. These modes are Standard, Eco, Snow, Sport, and Personal. This means you can set the driving mode the way you want and enjoy the performance of this impressive SUV when you take it out for a drive.
Power You Understand in the INFINITI QX60
The new 2022 INFINITI QX60 will have the same powertrain as the new Nissan Frontier and Pathfinder models. The V6 engine has been a stalwart of this brand and the nine-speed automatic transmission adds more to the drive for you. The power you’ll find is 295 horsepower which is more than enough to give you the fun and driving performance you want on the road.
Testing Continues for this INFINITI
To test the QX60 in the most extreme conditions, INFINITI has taken this SUV to Death Valley to put it through the paces in the brutal heat of the area. Once on the production line, you’ll know this is an SUV you can trust when you take it out for a drive.
We don’t know much about the interior upgrades to the second-generation of the INFINITI QX60 yet, but that information will be offered before we see this impressive luxury SUV at dealerships around the country.
