2016 Infiniti QX50 At-A-Glance (Press Release)

On the heels of multiple new vehicle introductions, including production versions of the Q30, Q60 and QX30 Concepts – Infiniti is making significant enhancements to its current lineup. Following the 2015 model year introductions of the new Infiniti Q70L long-wheelbase luxury sedan and new range-topping QX80 Limited full-size SUV – model year 2016 begins with a revised version of the Infiniti QX50 luxury crossover.

Along with the addition of 3.2 inches to the wheelbase, the 2016 Infiniti QX50 also features a revised exterior in line with other recent Infiniti models such as the Q50 sedan. Standard content has also been increased, including the addition of a moonroof for all grade levels, and a new Hagane Blue exterior color is now offered.

As one of the first personal luxury crossovers on the market, the new QX50 once again combines a sculpted, elegant exterior design, exhilarating driving performance and an engaging interior environment. Each comes equipped with a standard 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 – one of the most powerful engines in its segment – and a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Standard features found on every QX50 include leather-appointed seating, heated front seats, Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Bluetooth® Hands-Free Phone System, RearView Monitor, eight-spoke 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a power sliding tinted glass moonroof.
