Infiniti is preparing new faces for 2018 season. Not only Q, but also QX segment is going to be refreshed. Big crossover class will get new vehicle, and it is going to be 2018 Infiniti QX70. There is a lot of work to be done until its official debut and market appearance, but so far, we know that this SUV is planned and advanced development stages are being finished. This luxurious crossover is going to add something new to entire segment, and this could make a breakthrough in entire industry. However, competition is not sitting still, so we can expect better offer in 2018 and we hope better prices.
2018 Infiniti QX70 powertrain
Under the hood of the full-size crossover will be 3.7-l V6 as an only drivetrain mentioned at this time. Other options are unknown yet, but if we know that new QX60 is coming as hybrid, same fate could face 2018 Infiniti QX70. Without electric battery help, 3.7-l petrol engine can deliver 350 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. More torque could be provided from diesel unit, but this option is not in plans at the moment. Engine is going to be mated to a 6-speed automated transmission that sends power to front or all wheels, at buyer’s choice. Estimated fuel economy is around 21 mpg combined, with 25 mpg run on the highway. Other possible powertrain could be 3.0-l twin-turbo V6, but it is unlikely to happen.
2018 Infiniti QX70 redesign
This luxurious crossover will be stunning. Its first appearance will make statement of rich, elegant and powerful SUV. Body structure is changed, and a lot more lightweight materials are being used for 2018 Infiniti QX70. This leads to weight drop and even more savings on fuel. Not only exterior, but also the cabin of the crossover is being revisited. New features, updated previous equipment and changed upholstery are making 2018 QX70 sophisticated and attractive. Infotainment is boosted with new systems and gadgets. Climate control, heating in seats and touchscreen display are standard.
2018 Infiniti QX70 release date
Until the end of next year, we won’t know how does 2018 Infiniti QX70 look like. Some soy shots are possible, and announcements from company won’t be enough to figure out complete impression. By the end of 2017, crossover should be presented, and early in 2018 we can see it in salons.

The drive train doesn’t make sense to me. The previous model had the FX50s with the 5.0 liter 390hp engine which was and still is a remarkable engine from infiniti first introduced in 2009 and till our days not many cars can keep up with the FX50s in acceleration and top speed. Why would they introduce a new model that can have its ass wiped and get shafted by an older model of the same vehicle?
