After a short break, this mid-size crossover will come back, better and more exclusive, as the 2020 Infiniti QX70. Those are the latest reports that can be found on the network. This model was in production for about 15 years. For that time, we have seen two generations of it. The previous model was discontinued, in favor of smaller QX50 and QX60 models. However, it looks like this is only temporary. The familiar nameplate will reportedly come back already in the next year.
This time, we are about to see a little bit different design approach. The new model will probably keep a similar dimension but should come in a so-called coupe crossover body style, a layout that becomes hugely popular in past few years. Still, keep in mind that these are all just rumors at the moment and that we are still waiting to hear something from the officials.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, we haven’t heard a word from Nissan/Infiniti officials so far. Therefore, take all the following info with a big dose of a reserve. Sources of information are quite limited, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate about the new model.
From what we know at this point, the 2020 Infiniti QX70 should keep the familiar size. This means it will continue as a mid-size crossover. Most likely, we will see a similar wheelbase and overall dimensions. However, count on a little bit different body style. It should come with a coupe-like layout, a design that has been pretty popular these days. In practice, this would mean you can count on a sloping rood design and sleeker overall approach.
Of course, this redesign will bring lots of mechanical changes as well. Count on a completely new chassis, which should save some nice number of pounds and also bring a new suspension setup. Such changes should make the new model more athletic, which will be crucial for the model’s success in the segment, where you can find leaders like BMW X6 and similar models.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Styling
The styling is still quite intriguing. The fact is that Infiniti should start with the renewal process of the complete lineup soon, and 2020 Infiniti QX70 should be one of the first models to adopt new design language. We are pretty sure that this brand will stick to its familiar philosophy, which insists on sleek lines. Still, we count on a slightly sharper approach, which will definitely make the new model up to date. As we already mentioned, one of the most interesting details of the new model should be its rear end. Count on a sloping roof layout, with a liftback-like tailgate and shorter rear overhang as well.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Interior
At this point, we can only speculate about the 2020 Infiniti QX70’s interior. For the beginning, we expect from the new model to deal with some of the issues that bothered the previous model. In the first place, it should be rear seats, which are pretty tight. The new model should offer more legroom, though headroom will probably be a problem with the new model, due to its layout. However, that is a common thing in class, so there is no room for complaints. Same goes for the cargo capacity, which also isn’t very generous in these models.
The new model should also improve the materials quality. This primarily refers to the dashboard. In the previous model, it looks quite good. However, the new version will be more exclusive, so we count on more hi-grade materials. Besides soft-touch materials, we also count on more style, considering that the previous dashboard layout definitely isn’t the prettiest one.
Of course, count on the latest tech features as well. The list of standard equipment should be pretty long and will definitely include the latest gadgetry and connectivity features, as well as lots of advanced driver aids and safety systems.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Engine
The powertrain is definitely the area where the recently-discontinued model shines. It features a 3.7-liter V6 engine with around 330 horsepower. There is a big chance to see this engine once again in the offer, with a couple of modifications that would make it even more powerful, but also more efficient. Of course, it would come with a familiar 7-speed automatic transmission. Besides this familiar V6 unit, many reports also suggest a new turbo V6 engine in the offer. It should be a 3.0-liter unit, with a max output probably around 400 horsepower. Seems like a perfect amount of power for such a model.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, the new 2020 Infiniti QX70 is just a rumor at the moment. We are still waiting for the official confirmation. Still, that doesn’t stop many experts to suggest its arrival already in about a year, eventually two. Many of them even suggest a starting price of around 50.000 dollars.
