After recent dramatic updates, the new 2023 Infiniti QX50 will gain minor updates. This modern compact crossover is now in its second generation it looks better than ever. Both the interior and the exterior are extremely premium and modern. The upper trim levels are offering true luxury so QX50 will be one of the segment leaders, for sure.
The new model won’t offer any improvements in terms of performance. However, we expect to see more safety aids, more premium accents, and new exterior colors. The sales will begin later this year and here’s what we know so far about the new QX50 crossover.
Infiniti QX50 Exterior Changes and Colors
As we said, the QX50 model gained a drastic facelift recently. Because of that, the 2023 Infiniti QX50 will mostly be a carryover. We only expect to see new exterior paints and additional black accents, mostly upfront. New wheels are also a possibility, as the most recent reports are predicting larger and optional rims. The rest of the exterior should remain.
The QX50 model provides a bolder grille, modern headlights, and headlights. Everything on this model looks modern and premium. Colors such as Dynamic Sunstone Red and Slate Gray will be on offer once again. While this crossover does not offer good off-road capability, it does offer 8.6 inches of ground clearance.
A similar story will continue inside the cabin. The upcoming 2023 Infiniti QX50 will once again provide a comfortable interior with a modern design. Of course, upper trim levels will provide more luxury, like always before. Infiniti offers a dual-screen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Moreover, this crossover comes with perforated semi-aniline leather so the comfort is admirable. Thanks to the sliding/reclining seats, the QX50 gets 38.7 inches of legroom. Thanks to that, Infiniti QX50 is the most spacious model in its class. The 2023MY will provide new driver-assistance features and the Pro Pilot Assist will be standard now.
Under the hood, the new 2023 Infiniti QX50 comes with the same 2.0-liter engine. It is a turbocharged inline-four gasoline engine with variable compression. The output delivers 268 hp and up to 280 lb-ft of torque. As for fuel efficiency, QX50 achieves 23 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. The front-wheel-drive system comes as standard.
Choosing an optional AWD setup will slightly lower the fuel efficiency. A CVT transmission is available and it is the only gearbox option. The ride quality is impressive, so the QX50 model is perfect for longer trips. On the other hand, we think the handling could have been better.
2023 Infiniti QX50 Price, Release Date
The base Pure trim level will start at $39,000 once again. The price will remain so the range-topping Autograph model should cost $57,000. The AWD system is optional and it will cost $2,000. The sales will begin in the second half of 2022 and the 2023 Infiniti QX50 will rival Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Acura RDX.
