Despite being one of the older models in the class, the QX60 probably won’t feature any particular change for the next year. Moreover, the 2021 Infiniti QX60 is about to carry on in the same way, with familiar design characteristics, which didn’t significantly change since the initial launch in 2014. Of course, there were some updates, but things essentially remained the same. This is model is in a close relationship with the Nissan Pathfinder and features almost identical mechanics and proportions.
Still, that doesn’t mean we aren’t talking about a genuine premium crossover, which has a lot of great things to offer. For example, it offers a spacious cabin, easy access to the third row, decent interior quality, powerful engine, and a quite comfortable ride.
Moreover, the price is lower compared to most competitors. Also, you may also count on good fuel economy, respectable towing rating etc. Considering that no changes are expected for the next year, we expect it will arrive in typical time, sometime late in the year.
2021 Infiniti QX60 Design
This is where we definitely don’t expect bigger changes for the 2021 Infiniti QX60. The current generation will remain in production for another year or two, which means we may count on familiar design characteristics. This includes both mechanics and aesthetics. In terms of mechanics, this model rides on a good-old D platform, which ensures a lot of space on the inside, as well as a pretty smooth ride.
When it comes to aesthetics, we really don’t expect to see anything particular for the next year. The 2016 model received a facelift, which has brought a lot of visual novelties and adapted this model to the brand’s current design language. Therefore, we don’t expect to see anything more notable to be changed in the next year.
The same thing goes for interior design. We don’t expect to see any particular change. The 2021 Infiniti QX60 will carry on with the same dashboard design. It is characterized by a decent overall quality, though there are some areas that feature cheap plastics. Also, the overall design seems a little bit dated. So, we could say that many rivals look younger and more attractive.
Despite we could criticize the dashboard design and quality, the 2021 Infiniti QX60 will be very strong in another aspect, which refers to space and functionality. With more than 114 inches in wheelbase, it features two quite spacious rows of seats, while the third row can be decent in the right circumstances as well. We particularly like the fact that the second-row slides, which allows super easy access to the third row.
When it comes to the cargo capacity, you may count on pretty decent 16 cubic feet behind the third row. 40.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 76 cubic feet of the overall cargo volume are also quite typical numbers for the class.
Novelties in terms of standard equipment are always nice, but we don’t expect to see too many of them in the 2021 Infiniti QX60. Most likely, the list of standard equipment will remain pretty much the same. This means you may count on an 8-inch screen, eight USB ports, Bluetooth, satellite radio, HD Radio, moonroof and a six-speaker stereo. In higher trims you can also get features like an 8-inch touch screen, Amazon Alexa, navigation, a premium 13- or 15-speaker Bose sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 8-inch screens and more.
When it comes to safety features, the list of standard equipment includes things like a rearview camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and blind-spot monitoring. Additionally, you can get things like adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlights, a surround-view parking camera system, moving object detection, Active Trace Control, reverse automatic braking, the following distance indicator, blind spot intervention, lane keep assist, lane departure warning etc.
2021 Infiniti QX60 Engine
Things under the hood will also remain the same. The 2021 Infiniti QX60 will carry on with the well-known 3.5-liter V6. It delivers around 295 horsepower, which seems pretty much okay in terms of driving dynamics. The engine comes in pair with a CVT gearbox. That may not be the most attractive choice in terms of driving experience, especially if we are talking about a premium model. On the other side, things are highly beneficial in terms of fuel economy, which goes around above-average 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. A max towing capacity goes up to 5.000 pounds.
2021 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come, we expect to see 2021 Infiniti QX60 in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter. The price should remain pretty much the same as for the current model, which starts slightly under 44.500 dollars.
