Redefined 2016 Infiniti QX50 with Premiere in New York
Just like many other exclusive and luxury companies Infiniti will also have its stand at this year's New York Auto Show. The big news regarding its participation in the event is that this is where the debut of the 2016 QX50 will happen. The vehicle is a very special one since it has played a significant role in company's history being one of the first personal crossovers. Nowadays this segment is growing rapidly and every company is trying to release its own successful version.
There will be a wide range of updates in the new QX50. Starting with the wheelbase, it will feature a three inches increase that will eventually ensure the occupants have more rear legroom and interior space. In addition, Infiniti also told us that the crossover will sport new front and rear fascias and have a higher ride stance.
The wheels and side sills will be also new and actually we do expect to see a very big change in the car. Although these are the official details, we also want to see another unit underneath the hood of QX50. The current model is powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine that has the potency of generating 325 hp (239 kW) and 361 Nm (266 lb-ft) of torque. The 7-speed automatic is a standard, while the all-wheel drive system is left optional. Maybe we will see AWD as a standard in New York?
QX30 Concept is the other vehicle in Infiniti's lineup which will make a North American. The car is a preview of a future compact crossover expected to be seen in dealerships in early 2016.
