A fresh look for Infiniti’s people hauler

Infiniti has announced a mid-cycle refresh for the QX60 ahead of its formal debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The changes are relatively minor, but help improve passenger comfort, as well as adding levels of customization.

The QX60 has been around since 2013, but confusingly made its debut as the JX35 in 2012. The name change came courtesy of Infiniti’s rebranding efforts to streamline its model designations. The three-row, seven-passenger crossover shares its bones with the Nissan Pathfinder – something that hasn’t changed for the 2016 model year. The familiar 3.5-liter V-6, CVT transmission, and optional hybrid drivetrain carry over unchanged.

Infiniti says the 2016 updates will help push the QX60 as a global sales leader for the brand. The QX60 posted a respectable 24-percent growth in year-over-year sales between 2014 and 2015, and Infiniti expects that trend to continue.

“The new QX60 will become an important part of Infiniti’s global growth strategy as the global premium crossover market continues to grow,” says Francois Bancon, Infiniti’s Vice President Product Strategy. “The new model builds on the characteristics that have made QX60 an increasingly popular choice with premium buyers, offering enhanced design, driving dynamics and best-in-class levels of interior comfort and convenience.”

Infiniti will continue to offer the QX60 in both front- and all-wheel drive configurations, as well as V-6 and hybrid drivetrains. AWD continues as an option on hybrid models, as well. Follow along as we detail out the changes for the 2016 model year.

Updated 02/24/2016: Infiniti announced prices for the 2016 QX60 which will be put on sale later in the spring. For the 2016 model year, the QX60 will be offered in four models – QX60, QX60 AWD, QX60 Hybrid and QX60 Hybrid AWD, and will come with a price increase of only $200 over the 2015 model year.

2017 Infiniti QX60

More improvements after last year’s mid-cycle refresh

Infiniti has announced the 2017 model year will bring a host of updates for its popular QX60. Headlining the updates is a heavily revised 3.5-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection and other improvements, along with an updated infotainment system and an upgraded rear-seat theater package. Exterior and interior designs aren’t changing, however, as Infiniti gave the QX60 a hefty update for 2016.

The QX60 continues to be based on the Nissan Pathfinder, so it’s no surprise Infiniti’s version is getting similar updates as the 2017 Pathfinder. Both are FWD-biased, unibody crossovers with three rows of seating that can fit seven passengers.

Introduced in 2012 as the JX35, the Infiniti got a name change in 2013 as part of the brand’s nomenclature realignment. Now a member of Infiniti’s QX SUV segment, the QX60 is joined by the QX30, QX50, QX70, and the QX80.

So without further ado, let’s look at the updates for the 2017 Infiniti QX60.

2016 Infiniti QX60 – Driven

2016 Infiniti QX60 – Driven

Three rows of luxury for the active family

The Infiniti QX60 has been around since 2014 thanks to a name change with Infiniti’s JX35. The JX debuted in 2013 and its name only stuck that first year. Nevertheless, the three-row crossover didn’t change in the renaming. In fact, until 2016, the JX35/QX60 soldiered on unmodified. Well, now with the 2016 model year in full swing, the QX60 enjoys refreshed front and rear fascias, new taillights, a slightly improved interior, and minor tweaks to its driving dynamics.

I recently spent a week with the 2016 QX60, getting a feel for Infiniti’s updates. The evaluation week consisted of my usual routine of errands, chauffeuring the family to different places, and hauling home groceries. Getting to the point – the QX60 performed exceedingly well. It has plenty of room for seven people or a load of cargo. It has plenty of power for accelerating and can tow 3,500 pounds. My tester also came with the optional AWD system, giving it an upper hand in bad weather or slippery surfaces.

But what about the updates for 2016? Do they really make a difference? Well, yes and no. The revised fascias and rear taillights, along with the interior enhancements, look great and add to the ownership experience, but the suspension upgrades meant to improve the handling only decrease ride comfort. Still, the 2016 QX60 isn’t a bad crossover by any means, especially when looking at the pricing. Infiniti’s MSRP starts at $43,595 for the QX60 – far less than several of its three-row competitors.

So let’s dive into what’s new, what’s good, and what’s not so lovable.

2014 Infiniti QX60

2014 Infiniti QX60

At the end of 2012, Infiniti announced a new naming strategy where the letter Q would indicate sedans, coupes and convertibles models, and QX would indicate crossovers and SUVs.This new naming system takes over for the 2014 model year, ushering in the "new" QX60.

As of now, Infiniti offers four different crossovers and SUVs, including the QX50 (previously the EX35), QX60 (previously the JX35), QX70 (previously the FX35) and QX80 (previously the QX56). With the previous naming strategy, the numbers in the model’s name referred to the engine displacement, but now it indicates the model’s place in the lineup — the higher the number, the more expensive and luxurious the model; easy enough.

The QX60 carries over pretty much everything from the JX35 that Infiniti unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, including the engine, exterior and interior look, and all the accessories. In fact, the new QX60 is little more than the 2013 JX35 with "QX" badges.
