The Infiniti QX70 is a popular SUV model for which Nissan announced a redesign for 2020. It was a completely logical move after a less sold units. Earlier, this crossover was known as “FX” until the company decided to change its name to “QX70”.
In its history, the QX70 has been introduced in two generations, so that we will have the opportunity to see the third redesigned generation of SUV models in 2020. As for the outlook of the QX70, it’s very sporty and stylish, and it also remains mid-size.
On the other hand, the interior of this SUV has changed considerably compared to previous releases. As before, there will be space for 5 passengers and it will be spacious. Also, this redesign will try Infiniti to retain the recognizable characteristics of the previous crossover but with some improvements.
QX70 will ride on the same platform as the Nissan Murano model
2020 will definitely be a great year for the QX70 SUV, but Infiniti will have to make it unique and different from other SUVs on the market. For example, the QX50, which is also Infiniti’s model, is quite similar to the future QX70 crossover.
Therefore, Infiniti will probably not produce two models of the same characteristics, because it makes no sense. So, the exterior and the interior will probably be changed, as well as the longer wheelbase, which will mean more space inside.
In addition, the new platform will be built, and according to some information, it will be the same platform as on Nissan Murano, while the front wheel drive will probably be its characteristic, too. In any case, it is expected that this model will stand out in the market and will have significant improvements over previous releases.
Interior features the same shapes as in the QX50 model
The 2020 Infiniti QX70 is expected to be featured with all modern things and gadgets, but it will still have little tradition in it, as it will have an analog clock. As we have already mentioned, some of the features of the QX50 model will be present, for example five seats in two rows, while there are rumors about even three rows of seats.
In this second case, the third row will be intended for children. In addition, the previously mentioned wheelbase will be longer, which will provide additional space and comfort for all passengers. It will be great for a long trip. The users of the QX70 will have a large selection, for example, a Technology Package with standard equipment or a Premium Package with some additional features such as 360-degree camera view, memory seats or latest navigation.
2020 Infiniti QX70 engine is delivering up to 325 horses
When we talk about the QX70 engine, we can also notice a significant difference with the engine on the previous model. Previously, the 5.0-liter V8 was present, while the QX70 incorporated a 3.7-liter V6 that produced 325 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.
There is also an automatic 7-speed gearbox, but there is also manual gearbox option. Depending on the platform, the drive will be either four-wheel, which was the case with the previous models, or the front-wheel drive if there is a Nissan Murano’s platform.
2020 Infiniti QX70 Price and Launch date
As for the price of the 2020 redesigned QX70, it will range from $ 50000 to $ 70,000 depending on the accessories and package of equipment you choose.
Presentation at car shows should begin at the end of 2019. of the main rivals of the QX70 SUV, the BMW X6 is definitely one of the main. In any case, the Infiniti QX70 will be a luxury car that will attract the attention of many users, primarily because of its very stylish and sporty outlook, but the performance is not negligible as it is a 325-horsepower machine.
