Infiniti’s mid-size SUV has just been redesigned for the 2022 model year. Considering all the novelties that were introduced, we are pretty sure that the second production year won’t bring any significant changes. We count on the same design, which has brought a lot of improvement compared to the previous generation. Still, minor tweaks are always possible. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 could come with smaller-scale updates, such as new color options, a few additions to the list of standard equipment etc.
You may count on a crossover that has a lot of good things to offer. We like the exterior styling, as well as the interior quality. Furthermore, the cabin is also quite spacious, while the cargo area is generous as well. When it comes to the powertrain, there is a decent amount of power, while the fuel economy is above-average for the segment.
Considering that there are no significant changes to come, we believe that the 2023 Infiniti QX60 will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Design
The 2023 Infiniti QX60 will represent the second production year of the current generation, so there is no doubt that the changes will be minimal. Practically, the only thing we could see is new color options, while the overall design is about to remain the same. This refers both to the styling and mechanics.
Speaking of the mechanics, the new generation is also based on a good-old D platform. The suspension setup is well balanced and offers not so much body lean, though we have to say that many rivals offer more athleticism. The comfort is pretty good too and the SUV absorbs road imperfections in a pretty nice way.
Once again, the 2023 Infiniti QX60 will bring no changes. The cabin design will remain the same, which isn’t a bad thing at all. Moreover, the new cabin looks really nice, thanks to the attractive combination of elegant design and high-quality materials. Also, numerous tech features make the cabin look even more attractive.
Besides great quality, this cabin also offers a lot of passenger space. While the third row is typically tight for the segment, the first two rows are very generous with space and accommodate adults with ease. The front seats are massive and supportive, some of the best in the class. Also, the driving position is very good, both in terms of ergonomics and visibility.
The cargo area also offers good volume for the class. You may count on about 14.5 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, 41.6 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 75.4 cubic feet of the total cargo volume, which is above-average for a mid-size luxury SUV.
Novelties in this aspect are always possible but we are pretty sure that most things will remain the same. Therefore, all models should come standard with goodies like a 12.3-inch touch screen, a nine-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, a panoramic moonroof, and tri-zone automatic climate control. When it comes to optional features, the current model is available with goodies like remote start, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, wireless device charging, and a 17-speaker Bose audio system.
The same is with driver-assistance features. So, base models should come standard with goodies like a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, forward automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning etc. Additionally, you can get goodies like a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, surround-view camera, front parking sensors, traffic sign recognition, driver drowsiness monitoring etc.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Engine
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 will continue with the same 3.5-liter V6 engine, which puts out 295 horsepower. That’s enough power to move the SUV with ease, enough to satisfy most drivers. Also, a big improvement that came with the recent redesign is that the engine doesn’t come in pair with a CVT anymore. Instead, it uses a 9-speed automatic transmission, which provides a much better driving experience.
The power is sent to the front wheels, while AWD models are available too. When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on up to 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which is pretty good for the segment. Another thing that’s pretty good is the max towing capacity, which goes up to 6.000 pounds.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Infiniti QX60 will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 47.000 dollars. Models like Cadillac XT6, Lincoln Aviator and Audi Q7 should be some of the key competitors.
