After previously 2022 Infinity QX60 was spotted with the camouflage and caused stirred opinions about the possible rendering outlook, now there have been several images of the ride – which actually looks good and fresh. After all, Infinity has mentioned before that the 2022 model will get several updates and refreshed work. The question is, does the company do a good job or the other way around?
The Updated News
It seems that the new 2022 model would have similar design and style as the previous rendering image. Based on the company’s info, the three row SUV will have new engine, more premium look for the cabin, and more dramatic design.
The Exterior Design
In terms of updates, the most obvious changes would be visible on the exterior part. The front fascia would be updated while retaining the same profile for the LED highlights and grille. The same updates would also take place on the rear where new elements and accents would be integrated better with the body lines.
The Interior Design
Not much information can be gained about the interior cabin, but considering all the updates on the exterior, it is only natural to expect similar updates on the inside. The three row arrangement for 7 people is still kept, but materials and designs would likely by improved. Hopefully, the company thinks about having wood trims, premium accents (such as suede), and leather upholstery.
The Engine and Performance
Rumor has it that the new 2022 Infinity QX60 will be using the same Nissan D platform, which is implemented on the Pathfinder. If it is true, then the new QX60 will be coming with V6 engine with 3.5 liter capacity that is producing 295 hp of power that is paired with gearbox 9-speed transmission. It uses ratio spread of 10:1 for better acceleration comfort and feel.
The current QX60 already comes with the same arrangement. However, it seems that they won’t offer CVT for the 2022 model. The new one will stay coming with front wheel driving system, while the all wheel system would be optional. Towing capacity would be improved around 1000 pounds, which means that the new QX60 would have 6000 pound for the towing ability.
The Price Ranges
There are several different trim levels offered for this line, and the entry level would be the Pure with $45,000 tag. The higher trim would be the Luxe with tag price of $47,000. The Essential would be $50,000 and the Sensory would be $52,000. The premium trim is the Autograph, with tag price at around $55,000.
The company hasn’t mentioned any detail about the option package, standard feature, or available trim. But if you take a look at the bigger QX80 or the smaller QX50, it is highly likely that the Essential would be the perfect mid-range option offering the best (and most logical) balance of value and features.
For the availability, the set date is in late 2021, but then again, we don’t really know for sure whether the launch will take place sooner or later. I guess we have to wait and see for the upcoming 2022 Infinity QX60 further info and release.
