2022 Infiniti QX60 revealed with all-new design
The Infiniti QX60 has been the brand’s cash cow for the past few crossover-crazy years. Despite its popularity, the three-row crossover was growing too old for its job, as the current-gen model launched in 2012. So the 2022 Infiniti QX60 skipped a year and launches as a completely revamped model.
The looks of the QX60 have aged quite well since its inception. Yet, in this fast-paced market, a change was long due, and the 2022 Infiniti QX60 brings just that. The design is a complete overhaul from whichever angle you look at it. The design builds on the Infiniti QX60 Monograph concept they previewed last year. The body creases take more aggressive turns and twists compared to the outgoing QX60’s smoother bodywork. From the side, the 2022 QX60 shows its roots to the new Nissan Pathfinder, its platform-mate.
The QX60’s age was clearly visible in the interior, as is the case with most old cars. The 2022 Infiniti QX60 takes care of that, turning the ugly duckling into an attractive swan. The dashboard design now swoops from the passenger side to the driver side, with the air-con controls nestled under it. A 12.3-inch screen stands on top, complete with Wi-Fi, wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Other optional amenities include a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, a 10.8-inch HUD, a 17-speaker BOSE sound system, massaging front seats and wireless charging.
Pop open the bonnet and you will find the same 3.5-litre V6 engine lifted off the outgoing Infiniti QX60. Good enough to produce 275 hp and 366 Nm, this engine channels its power to front wheels as standard. An all-wheel-drive system is optional. The good news here is that the 2022 Infiniti QX60 lets the droning CVT go. Instead, it picks up a 9-speed automatic.
The Infiniti QX60 is a premium no-nonsense crossover that has been pulling in good revenue for the brand. With a complete update, the 2022 Infiniti QX60 will most probably continue that deed. Expect the new model to reach Middle East showrooms by the end of the year, as Dubai also played host to its global debut as part of a three-city launch event.
