After a refresh for 2016 that included brand-new headlights and taillights, additional sound-deadening material and more, the INFINITI QX60 has a few more years prior to needing any substantial changes. This is precisely why we anticipate the 2019 QX60 to be a carryover.
Looks-wise, we expect not a single change to the QX60. Its exterior will likely continue with the exact same looks it’s had considering that its 2016 refresh, which give it a great mix of utility and sportiness. Inside, we likewise expect no changes, as this seven-seat cabin has lots of high end features and modern tech to keep purchasers amused.
Those who are wearying of the QX60 may choose the entirely upgraded QX50 for 2019. This upgraded model will include a new look and brand new engines. That stated, don’t count on anything new from the bigger QX70, as we have yet to see a 2018 variation, and reports suggest it may in reality be stopped.
For 2017, the QX60’s 3.5-liter V6 got brand-new direct fuel injection, which assisted bump its horsepower to 295 hp and torque to 270 pound-feet– increases of 30 hp and 22 lb-ft. This must stay the very same when the 2019 QX60 shows up. Likewise likely to remain the very same is the basic constantly variable transmission (CVT).
The existing INFINITI QX60 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick, thanks to its “Good” scores in all the crash tests and “Superior” rating in front-crash avoidance. Keeping it from the Top Safety Pick+ score is its “Poor” ranking in the headlight test. Anticipate a similar rating when the 2019 model shows up.
Absolutely nothing is official yet, but we anticipate to see the 2019 QX60 in display rooms in the fall of 2018. Offered there are no changes, we expect pricing to stay near to the existing model’s range of $44,295 to $46,095 (destination included). Competitors consists of the Volvo XC90, BMW X5, and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class.
