When the redesigned Infiniti FX was delivered to the market of luxury crossovers it immediately managed to attract decent amount of buyers. After the rename decision that this car company implemented on its entire lineup we are getting the 2015 Infiniti QX70.
Looking at the segment to which QX70 is delivered it is quite easy to conclude that this one comes with the most dynamic looks. When we add this to a fact that we are looking at the best-selling model of the Japanese car maker in the Europe than it certainly comes with all the right ingredients. Great performances, luxury, comfort and outstanding design allowed this vehicle to receive many positive reviews and one also comes from us.
2015 Infiniti QX70 Release Date
There are no official reports about the exact date for the launch of this new model but we do expect it to be presented during the summer of this year or latest during the fall. Dealership availability and sales should start few months after the official launch so we do expect it to be offered before the end of 2014th.
Latest changes were inspired by the Essence concept car that was presented all the way back in 2009 and this latest model comes with more aggressive but also quite refined front segment. Things like bumpers, fog lights, tail lights, head lamps and grille received decent amount of attention so that the final product would offer this great looks. Differences that the 2015th model offers are not that significant mostly are about features and standard equipment that now comes with a slightly longer list of features.
When it comes to the engine lineup it further attracts our attention. Base model is delivered with a 3.7 liter petrol V6 engine that produces 320 hp at 7000 rpm and 360 NM of torque at 5200, with this engine acceleration from 0 to 62 mph is done in 6.8 seconds while the top speed is 233 km/h. Those that want additional power should take a look at the 5.0 liter V8 unit that brings 390 hp. Special model, FX Vettel version was offered with V8 unit and 420 hp but only 200 units were sold. One thing that U.S. market will not be getting, and that is a shame, is the 3.0 liter V6 turbocharged diesel unit. This engine is capable of delivering 238 hp 550 NM of torque.
Power is transferred to all wheels through a seven speed adaptive shift automatic transmission that is paired with intelligent torque sensing system that provides best performances and optimal grip. Gear changes are controlled with the gearshift paddles that are located behind the steering wheel and are made of solid magnesium giving it premium feel.
Even before these latest changes interior of the QX70 was among the best in the class, with further improvements we are getting modern looks in combination with high grade materials. Sporty feel with the luxury continues in the cabin and the driver will have the perfect command position. Driver seat can be adjusted in 10 directions while the S sport model comes with 14 way power adjustable seats. Up to five people will have more than enough space and the 410 liter boot will carry all the needed cargo. Rear seats can be folded for additional cargo space when required.
Price Of 2015 Infiniti QX70
Price remains pretty much same for the 2015 Infiniti QX70 since this is a carryover model. Base model costs slightly over $45.000 while the better equipped 5.0 liter V8 model with AWD will cost more than $62.000. Have in mind that for this amount of money you will be getting one of the best looking vehicles in this segment with great performances and features.
