The Infiniti QX70 isn’t new, although the name might have you thinking otherwise. It’s still the sporty, five passenger crossover that first came ashore in 2003 and had its last major redesign in 2009. But, amid the brands lineup-wide renaming shakeup this year, the QX has taken over where the FX35/FX50 left off.

Keeping the same overall idea as the original 2003 FX35, the 2014 QX70 represents the brands focus on continuous improvement. Over the last decade, Nissan USA has vastly improved in almost every area of its product line. Engines are more powerful and use less fuel, interior fit and finish has improved , and technological advancements have been heavy. Growing sales numbers continue to show Nissan’s hard work and attention to detail.

Being an Infiniti, the QX70 forgoes trying to be an all-in-one sports car/luxury sedan/off-road champ and simply dumps the latter, leaving rocks and mud to Land Rover. What the QX70 does, it does well. And that is providing an exhilarating yet smooth ride to five people in a luxury cabin surrounded by a sporty wrapper that neither goes unnoticed nor screams ostentatiously in other motorists’ faces.

Updated 05/21/2014: Infiniti today announced prices for the 2015 QX70 crossover which remains mostly unchanged. The only "additions" is a new Sport Package that will make the QX70 look sportier. Prices for 2015 will start from $45,850.

2017 Infiniti QX70 Limited

Infiniti launching new "Limited" trim level of the QX70 at NY Auto Show

The Infiniti QX70 started life as the Infiniti FX in 2003. The second generation came to be in 2008, followed by a facelift in 2011. Since then, there have only been minor changes to the SUV, with the most important being the name change to QX70 in 2013. For 2016, not a lot has changed, and needless to say, the QX70 is due to see another generational change. That isn’t happening yet, but Infiniti has just announced a new edition to the QX70 lineup that is slated to debut later this week at the New York Auto Show. Its name: the QX70 Limited.

Infiniti is teaching an old dog new tricks, as the QX70 Limited is said to bring an “extra touch of exclusivity” by offering a number of visual enhancements inside and out. Vice President of Infiniti Americas, Randy Parker, said, “The QX70 has always been a popular model in the greater New York area so it’s fitting that visitors to the New York International Auto Show will be the very first to see this beautiful new QX70 Limited model.” He continued, “The QX70 Limited offers a range of premium exterior and interior treatments, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the dramatically styled crossover.”

Don’t get your hopes up for any drivetrain enhancements, because that just isn’t in the books for the QX70 right now, but this new Limited model does sport the new Grille that will be found on all QX70 models in the near future, along with a revised front fascia. Both of which are very good things for this old dog. So, let’s quit wasting time and take a look at the QX70 Limited before it makes its debut later this week.

2016 Infiniti QX70 Ultimate

2016 Infiniti QX70 Ultimate

Infiniti
is set to launch the Q30 at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, but the Mercedes-powered luxury hatchback isn’t the only vehicle Infiniti will showcase in Germany. Though it’s a bit long in the tooth for an auto show introduction, the current QX70 (launched in 2009 as the FX and renamed in 2013) is getting a new trim: the Ultimate.

With several special features added inside and out, Infiniti hopes the QX70 Ultimate will help keep sales of the SUV steady until a third-generation model arrives. Unfortunately, the Ultimate will only be offered in Europe and Russia, meaning U.S. customers will have to settle for the other trims until Infiniti does something about it.

"The QX70 has long struck a chord with buyers seeking something exceptional, but the Infiniti QX70 Ultimate is designed to respond to the most exclusive needs and desires of buyers," François Goupil de Bouillé, vice president of Infiniti Europe, Middle East and Africa, said about the new trim.

Keep reading to find out more about this SUV and stay tuned for more photos from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show next week.

2015 Infiniti QX70S Design

2015 Infiniti QX70S Design

Infiniti’s all set to debut the QX70S Design at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October. But first, how about a few teaser photos to get us all started. That’s the approach the company’s taking with its newest special-edition model. Fortunately, details aren’t as limited as the photos, so at least we get a mental picture of what we can expect to see when the QX70S Design makes it entrance.

The first indication points to the prevalent use of dark chrome on the full-sized luxury crossover. Infiniti says that there’s plenty of the dark chrome finish on the QX70S Design, including the grille, fog light surrounds, side air scoops, side sills and rear numberplate surround. Meanwhile, the headlights now come in a smoked finish, which should give the front end a more stylish look.

There’s been no indication on any performance upgrades, and we don’t expect there to be any. Either way, the QX70 already has a brute of a 3.7-liter V-6 under its hood. It’s capable of producing 325 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, which is good enough to accelerate the SUV to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 155 mph.

Infiniti’s plans for the QX70S Design call for the special edition SUV to hit selected markets in Western Europe as soon as the car finishes up at the Paris Motor Show.
