According to the Japanese automaker, the 2016 Infiniti QX50 includes over $1,700 worth of added standard features at a more accessible price compared to the 2015 QX50. Opting for an all-wheel drive model will run $36,845, with both models powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine sporting 325 horsepower and mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission.
