From the scorching sands of the Arizona desert to the icy peaks of northern Quebec, we’ve designed, tested, and refined the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 to give you confidence in the most challenging conditions. This is how we did it.
We started with the powertrain. Knowing our customers wanted a confident ride and capable performance, we gave the all-new QX60 our award-winning 3.5-liter V6 engine — this time mated to a brand new 9-speed automatic transmission.
Quick, Powerful Response
The combination of engine and transmission gives the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 a direct and linear acceleration feel. It aims to deliver an ideal balance of power and fuel economy, response, and refinement — immediately sensing your touch of the gas pedal and responding with the exact revs and acceleration you want.
“You just step on the pedal,
it downshifts, and you go.”
Dave Kiesel, Powertrain Performance, Manager
Greater Rev Range for Better Control
When designing the transmission, we gave it a larger ratio spread — almost 10:1. This offers you the ability to have a standing start performance that is confident and responsive. But also a calm, poised ride with assertive power that maintains fuel economy on the freeway.
With the INFINITI Drive Mode Selector, you can switch between five selectable modes — Standard, ECO, Snow, Sport, and Personal. This offers you a better power response depending on the conditions. And your mood.
Carry Almost Any Cargo With Ease
After achieving a compelling combination of engine and transmission, we turned our attention to the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60’s pulling power. With rigorous testing, we increased the towing capacity to up to 6,000 pounds — 20% more than its predecessor
Vacation of a Lifetime
The 6,000lbs of pulling capacity is enough for a 22-foot Airstream trailer — or weekend adventure toys such as bikes, small motorized vehicles, or personal watercraft. With the all-new QX60, you can take almost anything.
The increased towing capacity is supported by increased cooling and stability assistants. Selected models receive an uprated transmission oil cooler, integrated hitch receiver, trailer-tuned stability programming, and dedicated prewiring harnesses, which make towing that much easier.
Pushing the Limits
With every innovation came a rigorous testing schedule through some of the toughest terrains and weather conditions imaginable.
Designed, Tested, Refined.
INTELLIGENT ALL-WHEEL DRIVE
Ultimate Traction on Any Surface
The all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 has a new and improved Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system. It adds stability on a range of challenging surfaces by moving power to the wheels with the most traction, helping you continue forward with confidence.
"We listened to our customers and we wanted deliver an all-new INFINITI QX60 that could perform with confidence in nearly all-weather conditions."
Eric Rigaux, General Manager, Product Strategy and Planning
Get More Grip Than Ever Before
Part of the all-new QX60’s near-instant response is thanks to the all-wheel-drive system's new direct coupling mechanism. Instead of detecting wheel slip before it engages, the new all-wheel drive system uses sensors to predict when more grip is needed — sometimes even before the wheels start to slip.
“When I’ve been testing the all-new QX60, I find that the responsiveness is better than my capability and that gives me confidence in driving. And what's going to give our customers the confidence they need to head out in all of those conditions.”
Katie Anderson, Vehicle Engineer
Relaxing Highway Driving
Knowing it can handle grueling driving conditions, we turned our attention to a different type of travel: The highway. Because long distances in traffic can be tiring, we looked to make these parts of your journey easier and more enjoyable by creating an improved version of ProPILOT Assist.
Traffic Made Easy
ProPILOT Assist can already help keep you centered in your lane, slow, or maintain your distance from the car ahead. But what if bumper-to-bumper traffic has you at a stand-still? The system can now stop for up to 30 seconds, then resume driving speeds without you having to do a thing.
Adapts Even Better
The new system is now more aware of the driving conditions ahead. By using navigation, it can adjust speeds for upcoming curves, all while Traffic Sign Recognition can help you quickly match changing speed limits ahead. All in all, ProPILOT Assist can give you more confidence on busy or unfamiliar roads.
