2016 Infiniti QX60 Receives Updated Styling, New Technologies

The 2016 Infiniti QX60 has gotten a noticeable refresh with the seven-seater crossover getting an updated exterior and new technologies.

Up front, the premium crossover now looks sportier, with a front fascia resembling the Q50 sedan. The automaker also took the time to upgrade the cabin sound insulation and engine mounts to reduce the ingress of noise, vibration and harshness, resulting in an interior that’s quieter so passengers can better appreciate the feature-rich audio and connectivity systems. To better enhance both comfort and agility, the 2016 Infiniti QX60 also features new suspension components and settings, along with a revised steering system that the automaker says “delivers greater feedback for a more rewarding drive.”

The seven-seater crossover will be available in both front-wheel drive and optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive versions with a choice of a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine or a hybrid powertrain. The standard 3.5-liter V6 is mated to a continuously variable transmission and features 265 horsepower and 246 pound-feet of torque. The hybrid powertrain has a 2.5-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor for a combined system output of 250 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque.

When the 2016 Infiniti QX60 goes on sale later in 2016, it will be available in seven exterior colors: Liquid Platinum, Black Obsidian, Hermosa Blue, Majestic White, Graphite Shadow and new Hagane Blue and Jade Green. Expect pricing to be announced closer to the model’s launch.
