Nissan’s luxury brand Infiniti will soon be presenting a new seven-seat SUV to the American public. It concerns the QX60, of which the current model with introduction year 2012 is due for succession.
Infiniti is not running very well. The brand is not exactly going well from a sales point of view, but a small model offensive should turn the tide. The current offer is not very up to date. The Q50 and Q60, also sold briefly in the Netherlands, have been consecutively on the American market for 8 and 5 years and the SUVs QX60 and QX80 are all old-timers with their birth years 2010 and 2012. The current QX50, which was presented in 2017, is the youngest member of the Infiniti family, a competitor of the Lexus NX, among others. The QX50 will be joined later this year by a Coupé-SUV brother, the already presented QX55. Infiniti wisely focuses on modernizing its SUVs first and is therefore finally coming with a new QX60 soon.
Where the QX50 offers space for four to five passengers, the QX60 is an SUV that can carry up to seven people thanks to its third row of seats. The QX80 is also capable of this, although the SUV affiliated with the Nissan Patrol is of a completely different order. The design of the latest QX60 will not surprise anyone. Last year, Infiniti presented the study model QX60 Monograph to daylight. Anyone familiar with Infiniti knows that the Monograph designation is only applied to concept cars that are almost ready for production. The QX60, a competitor for the Lexus RX and the Lincoln Corsair, will get a 300 hp 3.5 V6, which is linked to a new for Infiniti automatic transmission with nine gears. The transmission was developed in collaboration with ZF.
The QX60 undoubtedly shares its technical base with its shorter brother, the QX50. Nice detail: those who are hunting for a relatively rare ‘QX60’ in the United States should keep their eyes open for a model called JX35. The current generation came onto the market under that name in 2012. That same year, Infiniti decided to use the ‘Q’ designation for its sedans and coupé, SUVs would now have ‘QX’ in their model name. As a result, the JX35 was renamed QX60 from model year 2013. The QX60 will of course not come to the Netherlands, as Infiniti is no longer active in Western Europe.
