Infiniti showed off the 2016 QX60 at the Detroit Auto Show, giving the premium crossover its first significant revision since it launched in 2013 under the JX60 moniker.
For its 2016 model year, the QX60 gets a redesigned grilled and new headlights inspired by those on the Q50 sports sedan up front and a modestly-revised rear fascia with updated taillights.
The large, seven-seat crossover also features a shark fin antenna, redesigned wheels, more chrome trim, and new interior trim materials.
Speaking of the interior, Infiniti says it’s quieter than before as a result of the use of acoustic glass. It also comes with an improved three-zone automatic climate control system, more USB charging ports to charge your smartphone, and a retuned power steering system that’s more responsive and delivers greater feedback.
Safety has been enhanced with the availability of Forward Collision Warning, Forward Emergency Braking, Pedestrian Detection, Backup Collision Intervention and several other system.
The 3.5-liter V6 that powered the previous model carries over unchanged, generating 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque.
The QX60 hybrid makes due with supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 250 horsepower and 243 lb-ft. New engine mounts not only reduce cabin vibrations but also improve cornering.
Front-wheel drive is standard on both models, while an all-wheel drive configuration is optional.
The updated, 2016 Infiniti QX60 goes on sale in the first half of 2016.
