The recent redesign has brought so many new things that becomes pretty obvious that the 2023 Infiniti QX60, which will represent the second production year, will carry on in the same way. We expect to see a familiar layout, though minor updates are always possible. This particularly refers to things like new color opitons and more standard equipment. However, some sources also speculate about an off-road version, which would come with a few more upgrades. The officials are still quiet about this.
You may count on familiar pros and cons. This SUV has so many good things to offer, starting from a spacious and luxurious cabin. Furthermore, we like its long list of standard equipment, while the ride is smooth and comfortable. On the other hand, the steering isn’t particularly precise, while the third row is typically tight for the segment. Basically, there are no major drawbacks.
Since there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2023 Infiniti QX60 will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Design
The 2023 Infiniti QX60 will represent the second production year of the new generation and therefore, it’s hard to believe that bigger changes could happen. We are about to see a familiar layout, which is still based on a good-old (but significantly updated D platform). The ride quality is good if comfort is your main criterion. On the other hand, don’t expect a too high level of athleticism. Styling-wise, we are about to see the same design that came last year, which looks great. Still, we won’t exclude the possibility to see some new color options, or maybe even a new appearance package.
As we already mentioned, some sources speculate about an off-road version. That model would come with several hardware upgrades, such as standard all-wheel-drive, all-terrain tires, skid plates and similar things. However, keep in mind that the officials are still quiet on this matter.
We don’t expect bigger 2023 Infiniti QX60 interior changes. The overall layout will certainly remain the same. Compared to the previous generation, the new model looks way better. We like its stylish dashboard, while the overall build quality is pretty impressive. There is a lot of attention to detail, while most areas are covered with high-quality materials. Finally, there is a long list of standard and available tech features, which make this cabin look even better.
The amount of interior space is pretty generous. The front seats are some of the best in the class in terms of comfort, while there is plenty of room in the first two rows. On the other hand, the third row is tight but that’s a typical thing for the segment. The cargo area offers around 14.5 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, 41.6 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 75.4 cubic feet of the total cargo volume, which is pretty good for the segment.
We could see some novelties on the list of standard and available equipment but most things should remain the same as in the current model. Therefore, all models should come standard with goodies like a 12.3-inch touch screen, a nine-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, and wireless Apple CarPlay, as well as a 7-inch digital gauge cluster, a panoramic moonroof, and tri-zone automatic.
Also, count on a lot of available features. Some of the highlights should be things like remote start, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch touch screen, a nine-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto, and wireless Apple CarPlay.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Engine
Things under the hood definitely won’t change. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 will continue with the same setup, which is based on a familiar 3.5-liter V6 engine, which features a max output of 295 horsepower. Driving dynamics are good, while the biggest improvement over the previous generation is the new 9-speed automatic transmission, which replaced the pretty uninspiring CVT. The ride is smoother and quieter, while the new transmission also ensures better fuel economy and a better max towing rating.
Speaking of the fuel economy, this SUV returns around 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which is a slightly above-average rating for the segment. Of course, AWD models are slightly thirstier. When properly equipped, this SUV can tow up to 6.000 pounds.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2023 Infiniti QX60 sometime in the last quarter of the year. The current model starts at around 47.000 dollars and we don’t expect bigger changes for the next year. Key competitors are models like Acura MDX, Audi Q7, Lincoln Aviator etc.
