The seven-seat SUV also gets the new Infiniti InTouch infotainment system
The refreshed 2017 Infiniti QX60 has gone on sale at dealerships across the United States.
Prices start from $43,100 for the base front-wheel-drive model and $44,900 for the all-wheel-drive version. Both prices exclude a $995 destination and handling fee.
There's still only one engine choice, but it has received a thorough upgrade for the 2017 model year. The 3.5-liter V6 gasoline unit now features direct injection, a revised air intake system, electronic variable timing control (e-VTC), and mirror bore coating. As a result, the engine delivers 295 hp and 270 lb-ft (366 Nm) of torque — increases of 30 hp and 22 lb-ft (30 Nm), respectively. The only transmission on offer remains the CVT.
Besides the uprated powerplant, the 2017 Infiniti QX60 also gets the newly-available Infiniti InTouch infotainment system which controls navigation, convenience, security, and entertainment features via a touchscreen display placed on top of the center console.
The Infiniti InTouch with Navigation and Infiniti InTouch Services, now available in the Premium Plus package, add Vehicle Health Report and Voice Recognition for audio, Bluetooth, and vehicle information.
Furthermore, the Infiniti QX60's optional packages get new features for 2017. The Deluxe Technology Package adds a new Motion Activated Liftgate, High Beam Assist, and auto side dimming mirrors, while the Drivers Assistance Package gets auto side dimming mirrors.
Finally, the Theater Package now offers dual 8-inch color monitors (1-inch larger than 2016), along with the addition of a 12V power point, USB port (audio/video capable) and an HDMI port. Wi-Fi is also offered in combination with the Theater Package and includes 2GB with a 3-month complimentary trial.
