2016 Infiniti QX60 Updated with Fresh Looks, New Safety Features
New front end brings crossover in line with Q50 sedan.
The Infiniti QX60 three-row luxury crossover gets a few tweaks for 2016, including a freshened look and some newly available features. Infiniti also says it has retuned the QX60's suspension, though the V-6 and hybrid powertrains carry over unchanged.
The 2016 Infiniti QX60's subtly updated styling brings it more in line with newer Infiniti models like the Q50 sedan, with reshaped headlights and a larger front grille. Around back, you'll notice revised taillights and some extra chrome trim on the tailgate, and the crossover also receives new wheel designs. Interior changes are minimal, and include some new soft-touch materials for the dashboard. To enhance the available suite of active safety features, Infiniti is adding forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
Infiniti says that the 2016 Infiniti QX60's suspension and steering updates improve the car's handling, and additional sound deadening should make for a quieter ride. The 265-hp 3.5-liter V-6 is unchanged, and still mates with a continuously variable transmission with either front- or all-wheel drive. The QX60 will also continue to offer a Hybrid model that pairs a 2.5-liter supercharged four-cylinder with an electric motor, and the 2016 QX60 Hybrid gains new engine mounts intended to reduce engine vibrations.
Don't expect pricing to change too much from the current Infiniti QX60's $43,395 starting price, and stay tuned for more information as we near the updated crossover's on-sale date in winter 2016.
