If we can rely on the latest reports, it looks like this mid-size luxury crossover will come back as the 2020 Infiniti QX70, just three years after the discontinuation. Those are the latest reports that we can find on the network. Although the previous generation ended production because of slow sales, it turned out that the company needs something like this in its lineup. The current QX60 is large and practical but it lacks some essential premium features, including rear-wheel drive. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the comeback has been rumored.
Originally known as the FX, this crossover was in production for almost 15 years. For that time, we have seen two generations of it. The third one will allegedly come already in the next year, if we can rely on the latest reports. Keep in mind that this is still just a rumor, so take the following paragraphs with a big reserve.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Redesign
At this point, the 2020 Infiniti QX70 is just a rumor. However, some quite reliable sources claim this is a certain thing. According to them, the new model would come in a little different manner compared to models from the current lineup. It looks like Infiniti will also enter the segment of so-called coupe crossover and compete with models like BMW X6, Mercedes GLE Coupe etc. This means a familiar sloping roof layout, something that even the previous QX70 featured, at least in some portion.
Of course, things would be far more accentuated in this case and 2020 Infiniti QX70 would be characterized by a pretty sporty stance. OF course, it would follow the brand’s latest design language, something that is pretty close to the recently redesigned QX50, which is characterized by pretty curvy lines, which isn’t a common case in today’s automotive industry. Therefore, we have no doubt that this will be one of the best looking models in the class.
When it comes to the interior design, we expect a lot of details borrowed from the QX50, as well from other fresh sedans and coupes from the class. This may include a familiar dual-touchscreen setup, but the latest reports are suggesting that Nissan is about to come with a new infotainment system, which would feature a little bit different layout. One thing is certain, new Infiniti models feature much nicer cabins that their predecessors, which were often criticized for subpar, mainstream-like interior quality.
In terms of space, we can count on a lot of legroom in both rows, though the second one could be a little bit tighter in terms of headroom, given the sloping roof design. When it comes to the cargo area, it should be spacious, but not as the one in QX60, which is based on the Pathfinder.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Engines
When it comes to motorization, we have no doubt that the new 2020 Infiniti QX70 will come with the company’s familiar 3.0-liter V6 turbo, which already powers several models from this brand. Of course, base models would probably come with the standard version of this engine, which delivers around 300 horsepower. Higher trims, though, would probably feature a mighty 400-hp version of the engine.
Various sources are also suggesting some form of electrification. Still, we don’t believe that such a version will be ready for the initial launch, considering that Nissan is currently struggling a little bit with hybrid technologies.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned for a couple of times, this model is still just a rumor. Therefore, take these paragraphs with a reserve, despite that some reports suggest the new model could arrive already in the next year. We are still waiting to hear something from the officials about this crossover, so we won’t speculate about possible launch date and price at this point.
