Although there were some reports that suggested a redesign of this mid-size crossover for the next year, it is now pretty certain that the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will carry on without more important changes. The current generation dates from 2012. It may be old, but still has a lot of things to offer. This is a fine crossover which offers good comfort, spacious cabin and a lot of standard features, especially in terms of latest tech goodies. In addition, there is a quite powerful engine, which ensures pretty decent driving dynamics. The next generation is expected to come soon, but that won’t happen in the next year.
The 2020 Infiniti QX60 will carry on with familiar design characteristics, with no changes either in terms of styling or interior design. On the other side, we could see a couple of additions in terms of standard equipment.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, this is a typical mid-size crossover. It rides on the company’s D platform, which clearly indicates that a lot of parts is shared with the Pathfinder. In terms of the styling, it features typical Infiniti layout. It is characterized by a sleek profile and a lot of curvy lines. Some reports were even suggesting a refresh for the next year, which would include a couple of styling changes, particularly at the front end. However, that won’t happen, as the current generation seems too old for changes. Most likely, this version will carry on for a year or two, and then we should see a completely new model. The same thing is expected with the Pathfinder. The new design will improve styling, driveability and many other things of this model. However, it seems too early to speculate about this at the moment.
The interior of the 2020 Infiniti QX60 is expected to carry on in the same way. That means a typical three-row layout. Typically for a mid-size crossover, the third row isn’t particularly spacious and in is best to be left for kids. On the other side, the front and second row are quite generous in terms of space. Also, the seats are very comfortable, especially for those who prefer a little bit firmer seats. When it comes to the cargo capacity, you can count on about 16 cubic feet behind the third row, which is quite average for the class. The overall capacity goes around 76 cubic feet.
When it comes to interior quality, there is nothing to complain about. The cabin is very well built. Still, keep in mind that this is a premium brand, so that’s probably not enough. Most rivals feature finer materials and more interesting color schemes. The overall quality is very good, but the competitors look more opulent.
In this aspect, the QX60 stands pretty well, despite the age. The company is very generous in terms of standard equipment, so even the most basic models come with standard features like an 8-inch display screen, Bluetooth, two USB ports, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, tri-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, etc. Things are even better in higher trims, where you can also get an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, premium 13- and 15-speaker Bose audio systems, rear-seat entertainment system and many more.
In terms of safety features, the QX60 also stands great, especially if we consider its age. All models come standard with things like rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Also, you can get 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, automatic high beams, etc.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Engine
When it comes to the powertrain, the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will carry on with a familiar V6 engine. It is a well-known 3.5-liter unit, which delivers around 295 horsepower. Such amount ensures pretty convenient ride and you definitely won’t feel underpowered in any situation. The engine comes with a CVT gearbox, but keep in mind that it simulates traditional gear shifts. That will be highly appreciated by those who used on a typical automatic transmission. When it comes to fuel economy, you can count on something like 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. These are pretty much typical numbers for the class.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, there is no doubt that the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will come in a typical time of year, sometimes late, probably in December. Also, we don’t expect any price changes, so base models should go around 44.000 dollars. Some of the key competitors are models like Cadillac XT5, Lincoln Nautilus, Acura MDX, Lexus RX etc.
