After the famous crossover got dropped in 2017, it seems like the QX70 model will return sooner than everyone expected. The 2020 Infiniti QX70 will arrive as the company is already working on an all-new generation. This crossover was known under the name “FX” and later it came under the name “QX70”. So far, we saw two generations. After the sales didn’t go so well, Infiniti will take some bold moves.
The 2020 Infinity QX70 is a mid-size crossover SUV. It comes with elegance and the exterior looks both modern and sporty. Driving manners are on another level and the interior is luxurious. There is room for five persons and the interior room is ample. The new generation will present something new, but the familiar design language and shape will remain.
2020 Infiniti QX70 will ride on the same platform as the Nissan Murano model
While the all-new 2020 Infiniti QX70 has huge potential, the company is already offering a similar-size model. The QX50 is everything that the arriving QX70 can’t be. There is no point in making two similar models under a different name. With that in mind, QX70 crossover will probably depart from its sibling. That means the exterior will suffer a lot of refinements and changes. We just hope the Infiniti has a winning combination for its latest model. For the start, longer wheelbase is the most probable outcome.
That should provide more space from the inside. Moreover, the new platform will arrive for sure. Latest rumors are suggesting the same platform that underpins new Nissan Murano. Moreover, a front-wheel-drive should be a standard driving setup. The new styling is what we all expect and Infiniti will look to deliver another elegant crossover. We still don’t know if the QX70 will hit the markets with the coupe-like or sedan-like form, but a car-like appearance is guaranteed.
2020 Infiniti QX70 interior features the same shapes as in the QX50 model
The interior will be equipped with upscale materials and premium features. The 2020 Infiniti QX70 will look to combine the modern design with the tradition. For that reason, the analog clock will remain. The cabin will borrow plenty of features and shapes from the QX50 model. A two-row five-seat configuration will be standard. There are some rumors saying the third row will be optional. If that happens, we think the third row will be tight and for kids only. However, the base model will benefit from the longer wheelbase and more interior legroom.
All seats are comfortable and longer trips won’t cause any problems to passengers. Thanks to numerous optional packages, the QX70 crossover could become a real luxury crossover. Technology Package comes with more safety aids and more standard equipment. On the other hand, the Premium Package adds a new audio system, memory seats, latest navigation, and a 360-degree camera view.
2020 Infiniti QX70 engine is delivering up to 325 horses
The forthcoming 2020 Infiniti QX70 will arrive with a single drivetrain option. Forget about the previous 5.0-liter V8, as this crossover will use a 3.7-liter V6 from now on. This powerful engine is delivering up to 325 horses and 267 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission, but the manual-shift mode is available.
Moreover, you can opt for the optional Adaptive Shift Control that learns your way of shifting gears and it performs the shifting automatically. The previous model was a rear-wheel-drive model. However, if QX70 use the platform from Nissan Murano, a front-wheel-drive will be standard. Whatsoever, you can always buy the optional all-wheel-drive configuration.
2020 Infiniti QX70 price and launch date
The next 2020 Infiniti QX70 will cost around $50,000, maybe slightly less. Loading all options will cost you about $60,000 and upper trims will cost up to $70,000. This crossover will hit the dealerships later in 2019. The main competitor will be BMW X6.
