- A new 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine with Infiniti's VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) and Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) technologies - producing 25-percent more power and more than a 10-percent increase in fuel efficiency versus the previous design
- A new standard 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode and Downshift Rev Matching (replaces the previous 5-speed automatic)
- Standard Around View Monitor, upgraded Bose Premium Audio System and Automatic Temperature Control System
Other standard equipment includes 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, power sliding moon-roof, power rear lift-gate, leather-appointed seating, power folding and reclining 3rd row seats, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth, Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System with XM NavTraffic with Real-Time Traffic Information, XM NavWeather with Real-Time Weather and 3-day forecast (XM subscription required, sold separately) and Zagat Survey Restaurant Guide.
In addition, the new QX offers an array of available advanced technology, including a new Hydraulic Body Motion Control system, a Theater Package with dual 7-inch monitors, Advanced Climate Control System, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) and new Blind Spot Warning (BSW).
"This is a phenomenal vehicle at a phenomenal price point, especially given the enhanced styling inside and out and the impressive suite of new and improved standard features," said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Business Unit. "The new QX is designed to offer a true five-star travel experience, while providing the benefits of available eight-passenger seating capacity, versatile cargo space and 8,500-lb. towing capacity. It sets a new standard in full-size luxury SUVs."
