Prices for the 2015 Infiniti QX50 and QX70 luxury crossovers increase slightly for the new model year. The QX70, formerly known as the Infiniti FX, drops its optional V-8 engine; the only change for the QX50, once known as the Infiniti EX, is the inclusion of Bluetooth as standard on base models.
The 2015 Infiniti QX50 now starts at $35,995 after destination for a base model with rear-wheel drive. The QX50 Journey starts at $38,195, while adding all-wheel drive to either version of the 2015 Infiniti QX50 requires an extra $1400. All versions of the luxury crossover use a 325-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission.
The biggest change for the 2015 Infiniti QX70 is that its optional 5.0-liter V-8 engine has been discontinued. The mill isn’t used anywhere else in the Infiniti lineup, and a spokesman said it was canceled for a “variety of reasons.” However, for 2015 the QX70 V-6 will receive several pieces of equipment that were previously exclusive to the V-8 model, including 21-inch wheels and paddle shifters. The 2015 Infiniti QX70, which now exclusively uses a 325-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 engine, starts at $46,845 with rear-wheel drive and $48,295 with all-wheel drive. A newly available Sport package, $3550, includes the aforementioned 21-inch dark-finish wheels, dark chrome trim, adaptive headlights, and cooled front sports seats.
A refreshed version of the larger 2015 Infiniti QX80 was introduced at the 2014 New York auto show, but prices for it have not been announced.
