2015 New York Auto Show: 2016 Infiniti QX50 image

Infiniti has officially introduced the 2016 QX50 during the 2015 New York Auto Show, in a premiere.

The 2016 Infiniti QX50 has been officially presented to the public during the automotive event in the Big Apple. The model in question is nothing more than a facelift which has received modified front and rear bumpers, new LED daytime running lights, a revised front grille, the new side mirror design, the increased ride height and the 18-inch alloy wheels, which have been added. The Japanese company states that the wheelbase has been increased from 110.2 inches to 113.4 inches and this is translated into more room for the rear passengers, where the knee room has increased by 3.9 inches.

“Following the 2015 introductions of the updated Infiniti Q70 and the addition of the Q70L long-wheelbase version and new range-topping QX80 Limited full-size SUV, we’re kicking off model year 2016 with the updated QX50”, said the Infiniti Americas vice president, Randy Parker.

The updated version of the Infiniti QX50 has received most of the interior design from the previous version but it is now also getting some extra standard equipment which includes the moonroof and the heated front seats. Te Premium Plus Package is also available for the vehicle, adding the front and rear parking sensors, the Around View Monitor and the GPS navigation system. Power to it is being provided by a 3.7 liter V6 engine, which is producing 325 HP (242 kW) and 361 Nm (267 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed automatic transmission and the optional all-wheel drive system. No pricing details have been announced yet.
