The Infiniti QX60 is the brand’s most popular model. The three-row SUV is a favorite family hauler thanks to its good-looking design and spacious interior.
The front of the new QX60 will sport an updated grille that’s very similar to the Monograph Concept’s. The grille is more square than the current QX60 grille, giving the crossover a bolder and wider look. With slimmer headlights and a fascia that incorporates what look like fake air vents on the sides, the QX60 has a more masculine look than the current model.
Adding to that modern personality, an optional two-tone roof brings a different touch to a family SUV. Personally, I liked the two models we saw on the animated rendering video, and the two-tone roof adds a stylish, younger vibe to it. The slim taillights looked like they were taken out of the QX Inspiration, the concept that Infiniti plans to bring in the future.
The QX60 is the second of five models that Infiniti will show in the next three years. We think it will be another two years until the model arrives to the market, but that could change. What we do know is the QX55 is the first of those five upcoming models, and it should make its debut in the first quarter of 2020.
The Electric Future
We all know the future is electric, and Infiniti is following that trend. The automaker is developing one EV platform that will support two different powertrains: a fully electric plug-in powertrain and a gas-generated EV powertrain. The former is a traditional EV; the latter will use a three-cylinder VC-Turbo gasoline engine that will feed energy just to the battery.
The AWD platform will accommodate two electric motors (one for each axle), and the battery pack will reside in the middle. According to Infiniti, the gas-generated EV models will feature a significantly smaller battery pack along with a fuel tank and an exhaust system connected to the engine.
The slim headlights and taillights and the grilleless front will carry through. (The Qs Inspiration is the only one of the three that will sport a grille.) Expect more down-to-earth details, such as regular doors and side mirrors instead of cameras. Inside, Infiniti promises a “loungelike cabin,” similar to the interiors of these concepts.
