2017 Infiniti QX60: An Active Ride that Fits Seven

01.03.17 - Infiniti QX60

The midsize class of SUVs can be a confusing space for a vehicle to reside in. There are many in this class that offer seven seats but make the third row so small only small children can fit. In other cases there are only two rows, which means five is the maximum amount of people that can ride together. Thankfully the Infiniti QX60 has it figured out and offers seven-passenger seating that offers enough space for every seat to have an adult positioned comfortably in that seat for a great ride.

Not only does the QX60 solve the seating issue, this is an active SUV that has the ride you want when you’re looking for something with a stiffer and sportier ride. This is the vehicle you’ll turn to for the fun on the road when you’re alone and for the ride you can trust when you have more passengers with you. Offered with either FWD or AWD, the QX60 is an SUV that’s able to check off more boxes for you and be the vehicle you want to drive on a daily basis as the comfortable and exciting luxury performer you need.

For the 2017 model year the QX60 brings in some extremely important improvements for you. This SUV adds a direct fuel injection system to the engine to add thirty more horsepower, brings you a motion activated liftgate, a rear seat entertainment system and the benefit of Wi-Fi all as new options you can choose for this SUV. In the safety suite this SUV offers you two of the most important features you’ll find anywhere in the predictive forward collision warning system and the distance control assist. These two systems help you avoid a fender bender in busy traffic and look ahead to help you avoid a collision of any kind, to help during those moments when you’re not paying attention.

From under the hood of the QX60 you can see two engines that give you what you want on the road. The base engine, and the one most often chosen, is the 3.5-liter V6 which brings you 295 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. The second engine is the hybrid setup which offers you a 2.5-liter supercharged four-cylinder engine plus a 15kW electric motor. This powertrain is capable of offering you250 horsepower and 243 lb.-ft. of torque for you to enjoy the ride.

When we discuss a luxury brand you want to know about the features that are included.

The Hybrid model does have a sound system to alert pedestrians of the presence of the vehicle to make sure they know to look for it.

As you move up the options you’ll love the way this SUV can be loaded up. These options do start with AWD and then add items such as a navigation system, a 15-speaker Bose premium audio system, heated second row seating, a motion activated power liftgate, the Wi-Fi system, automatic high beam headlights, a heated steering wheel, a moonroof for the second and third row, a rear entertainment package, blind spot monitoring, intelligent cruise control, lane departure warnings, and the automatic braking systems that work for you in both forward and reverse.
