Infiniti takes the wraps off the new generation of their QX full-size luxury SUV at this year’s New York autoshow. And while the price of the car has remained the same, it has become larger, more powerful and more efficient.
The 2011 Infiniti QX is powered by the same engine that powers the 2010 Nissan Patrol, which is a new 5.6-liter V8 engine with VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) and Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG), producing 400 hp. It’s mated to a 7-speed automatic gearbox.
Standard features include a Theater Package with dual 7-inch monitors, Advanced Climate Control System, Standard Around View Monitor, 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, power sliding moonroof, power rear lift gate, leather-appointed seating, power folding and reclining 3rd row seats, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth®, Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System with XM NavTraffic® with Real-Time Traffic Information, XM NavWeather™ with Real-Time Weather and 3-day fore cast (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and Zagat Survey® Restaurant Guide.
Pricing for the new QX is set at $56,700 for the 2WD model and $59,800 for the 4WD.
