Infiniti Defines Luxury Performance

Comfort is assuredby taut, refined dynamics and drive assist technologies on the QX80.


The QX50’s multi-tone color combination of the top-of-the-line Autograph interior is said to have been inspired by wood, sand and water.  



The Infiniti story began in 1985 with the formation of Nissan’s top secret “Horizon Task Force.” Its objective: to create a new performance luxury brand.  Over 20 years later Infiniti, continues to uphold its stated goals: Beautiful Design, Advanced Technology and Empowering Performance.

Infiniti’s flagship QX80 SUV upholds the brand’s market presence in the full-size luxury SUV segment.  Its refined and spacious cabin features high-quality materials, a hand-crafted finish and advanced drive-assist technologies. The QX80 goes far in delivering drivers assured confidence at the wheel. A 5.6-liter V8 with 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque can tow an impressive 8,500 pounds when properly equipped, aided by a tow/haul mode for the transmission as well as an automatic-leveling rear suspension.   Hydraulic Body Motion Control technology that limits excess body-roll under more severe cornering is also available.  The seven-speed automatic transmission features manual shift control with rev-matched downshifts. Rear-wheel drive is standard, with four-wheel drive optional.

The popular and highly awarded QX60 crossover is one of the most versatile 3-row/7-passenger vehicles on the market today, The QX60 introduced a breakthrough technology designed especially for active families – Rear Door Alert, to help remind drivers of things that may be forgotten in the rear seat, and now standard on all QX60s. 

But it’s the all-new 2019 QX50 midsize luxury crossover that is receiving most press of late. The interior of the new QX50 certainly meets the mark in beautiful design, particularly on the inside.   The Infiniti design team wanted to provide drivers with a luxury experience every time they entered their QX50. Already leading its segment in cabin space, the light and airy color scheme plus available moonroof makes the QX50 seem even more spacious. 

Delivering on the technology and performance side of things, the QX50’s VC-Turbo, is the world's first production variable compression ratio engine--a project that Nissan says it has been working on for more than 20 years. Two engines in one –it’s a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four that can change its compression ratio and even its displacement, promising to maximize efficiency.  The engine delivers 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque with class-leading fuel economy rated at 27mpg combined for front-wheel drive and 26 mpg combined for all-wheel drive models. Along with all the expected new car technologies, the QX50 is also the first crossover and first front-wheel drive application of Direct Adaptive Steering.
