Infiniti will offer the QX70 Limited luxury SUV for 2017 to provide "an extra touch of exclusivity," according to the brand.

The QX70 Limited debuted at the New York International Auto Show, and follows the 2016 QX80 Limited model.

"The QX70 Limited offers a range of premium exterior and interior treatments, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the dramatically styled crossover," said Randy Parker, vice president of Infiniti Americas. "The QX70 has always been a popular model in the greater New York area."

The Limited model's exterior enhancements begin with a unique front fascia, LED daytime running lights replacing the standard QX70 fog lights and a new grille design that's coming on all 2017 QX70 models. Other changes include body-color side air vents, dark-finish outside mirror housings, dark finish rear combination lamps and a stainless steel rear bumper protector. Capping off the exterior are a rear hatch-mounted "Limited" badge and unique 21-by-9.5-inch multi-spoke premium paint-finished aluminum-alloy wheels mounted with 265/45R21 V-rated all-season tires.

On the inside, the QX70 Limited features a special high-contrast Graphite and Stone-colored interior treatment. Among the transformative interior elements are a dark-color headliner, special open pore wood trim with aluminum flake trim on the console, deep pillow quilting on the center console and aluminum-trimmed pedals.

The seats themselves include high-contrast leather appointments with Graphite outside sections and Stone inserts. The seats include deep pillow quilting and Stone color stitching and piping. The steering wheel and shifter boot also feature Stone color stitching. Heated and cooled front seats are standard with the QX70 Limited.

Like all Infiniti QX70s, the new QX70 Limited will be powered by a 325-horsepower 3.7L V-6 with variable valve event and lift technology. The engine is matched with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
