The QX60 is one of the oldest players in the segment, but it looks we will have to wait for a redesign for a little bit more. The current generation came in 2013, along with the Pathfinder. Therefore, it’s not hard to conclude why some many reports suggest a complete redesign in the near future. Most likely, this will happen in about a year, so the 2020 Infiniti QX60 is about to carry on without with a familiar design and features. We will see a styling that has been updated a couple of years ago.
Mechanically, this crossover is the same as the one that initially came six years ago. Same refers to the powertrain, though a hybrid model has been discontinued. The 2020 Infiniti QX60 shouldn’t feature any particular change, though minor updates in terms of standard equipment and new color options are possible.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Redesign
In terms of the base design characteristics, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 definitely won’t change. The 2020 Infiniti QX60 will continue with the same design which was originally introduced in 2013. That was the time for a completely new mid-size luxury crossover, which came along with the current-generation Pathfinder. The two models share a lot of things, particularly in terms of mechanics.
On the other side, the QX60 comes with a pretty attractive styling, which follows the brand’s latest design language almost entirely, thanks to a facelift that happened a couple of years ago. For that occasion, this crossover receives a completely new front end, as well as a portion of novelties at the rear end. So, today’s models look quite similar to a much younger QX50, which established the brand’s newest design language, when it comes to crossover.
The next year shouldn’t bring any particular change, though things like new color options seem possible.
The interior design won’t change either. The next year could bring a couple of new features, but the cabin design will remain untouched. In practice, this means a solid build quality and a decent visual appeal. The dashboard looks very similar to the Pathfinder’s one, though there are finer materials and more attractive color schemes. It looks nice, though a little bit too SUV-ish for today’s standards. Most rivals feel more opulent from the inside.
When it comes to the interior space, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will continue with standard three rows. The first and second one are very generous in terms of space, though seats are a little bit firmer than you would expect from an average mid-size crossover. On the other side, the third row is best to be left for kids. The cargo area is quite spacious as well. You can count on about 16 cubic feet behind rear seats, while the overall volume goes up to 76 cubic feet.
As we already mentioned, there is a chance to see a couple of novelties in terms of standard features. Still, most of the things will remain the same. Therefore, count that the list of standard equipment will include things like an 8-inch display, a moonroof, tri-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio etc. In higher trims, you can also get an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, 15-speaker Bose audio systems, a rear-seat entertainment system etc. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are not available in this SUV.
When it comes to safety features, all models come standard with a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection. In higher trims, this pretty decent list of standard safety features can be expanded with things like a surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, moving object detection, blind spot intervention, lane departure warning, lane keep assist etc.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Engine
Under the hood, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will continue with a familiar V6 gasoline engine. It is a well-known 3.5-liter unit, which in this case delivers around 295 horsepower. The engine comes in pair with a CVT gearbox and many will like the fact that it simulates shifts of an automatic transmission. This transmission may not be the most attractive choice, but benefits in terms of fuel economy are obvious. Despite we are talking about one of the oldest models in the class, it returns pretty decent 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. A hybrid version has been discontinued a couple of years ago.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
Considering that we are talking about the model that won’t bring any notable novelty, the launch date shouldn’t be scheduled before the end of the year. When it comes to the price, changes aren’t expected either. Base models will go around 44.500 dollars.
