2018 Infiniti QX50


It seems like new 2018 Infiniti QX50 won’t arrive as 2017 year model, according original plan. Delay gave the time for further improvements and boosts. Buyers and fans are not so happy with these news, but we are sure Infiniti will surprise all enthusiasts. Nevertheless, 2018 QX50 is going to be built on new platform, with clean design and comfortable interior. Luxurious branch is coming with powerful engines, and so it is with upcoming SUV. Last big redesign happened in 2013, so we expect many changes on the crossover. New generation is possible. However, people from Infiniti are still silent about it.

Big disappoint could be carrying over of the powertrains. That means new 2018 Infiniti QX50 will get power from 3.7-l V6 unit. This is doubtful because of the new generation. Usually, vehicles are getting new engines with fresh start. However, transmission is relatively new, and 7-speed auto gearbox is expected on 2018 QX50. Crossover offers FWD and AWD, with first one as standard. Engine is capable of delivering over 300 horse and 270 lb-ft of torque.

There are rumors telling about diesel engine in the 2018 Infiniti QX50. This could be turbo-diesel unit with displacement of 3.0-l. Less power and more torque is coming from this type of powertrain. Also, we believe diesel can do better in fuel economy. Transmission will be the same, a 7-speed automated, and both drive systems are used on this type of engine. Braking system and suspensions are new, with new shocks and discs.

Designers are looking to boost visual appearance of the 2018 Infiniti QX50. Because of that, many details are added. This is especially notable inside the cabin. For example, wooden accents are all over the interior to break monotony. Also, seats are covered by finest leather. Outside, 19-inch wheels are installed with LED lightning both on front and rear of the SUV. Fenders and grille are getting new look, as well as bumpers. Everything is going to be prepared during 2017, when all fans expect release. Estimated price is around $35,000.

  1. What is the width and length of the Infinity qx50. I need a car no wider than 71 inches and not longer than 190 inches

  2. Does the 2018 qx50 have the same acceleration pedal as the 2016 qx50? My pedal stuck wide open with the 2016 qx50; it exceeded 80 mph on its own… I almost got in a major accident because I had to slam on the breaks to stop it on icy roads. VERY SCARY! Dealership said it was the design of the pedal in connection with salt from the roads. We have video of this ‘design flaw’ – which is what the dealership called it. Please let me know if this pedal design has been addressed for others who drive in winter areas where salt is used. Thank you!

  3. Will the rear hatch open automatically or just as in 2017 be manual?

    1. Unfortunately, just manual. Most SUVs in the QX50 class do have that feature. The next model 2019 Infiniti QX50 I believe will have this feature.
