2016 Infiniti QX70 Release Date, Msrp, Price – After fresh naming patterns and design changes, most of Infiniti’s designs should be carried over into the year with less modifications. This will greatly be manifested in the 2016 Infiniti QX70 which will not have any significant modifications during its debuting.
The mid-size crossover will however get a refresh especially on its powertrain which was discontinued for obvious reasons. It will come solid enough with premium refinement coupled with great performance and aerodynamics.
The following review is focussed on giving you all the latest info about the new 2016 Infiniti QX70 Sport Utility Crossover redesigns and specs to expect.
2016 Infiniti QX70 exterior
We must admit that Infiniti models really excel in the exterior design judging from the spy shots we have in our possession. This is not just a towing, off-road crossover but is an elegant and luxury vehicle that comes with multiple sophistication geared towards appeasing customers.
This fun-to drive crossover will come with great aerodynamics and great looks as well. The front grille will get the Infiniti’s iconic signature hourglass stripe and contemporary headlamps that have LED technology.
Expect an angled small rear window, roofline spoiler and an arching roofline with thick pillars. At the posterior end, buyers should expect a set of lights that are analogous to those at the front side.
2016 Infiniti QX70 interior
The interior of the 2016 Infiniti QX70 will come with an assortment of few changes but not major ones. Basing on the exclusive photos we have, we should expect the new QX70 to turn up with few colour options.
Accents will come with Piano Black and Aluminium depending on the trim version, also made available is the mahogany veneers which will really sweeten things up. And while the new crossover really outshines the rest in luxury and comfort amenities, it doesn’t really outdo its close rivals in offering adequate space.
The crossover will feature a refreshed dashboard with a protruded control panel with a 7” display at its centre. For an entertainment purposes, buyers should anticipate a Bose premium audio system and among other equally impressive features.
2016 Infiniti QX70 engine
Under the hood of this mid-sized crossover will be an unchanged engine powerhouse. This will be the previous model’s 3.7L V6 engine which will be capable of generating 325 hp and 267 pounds of torque.
It will be offered as either a FWD or as an AWD drive. The V8 has been cast-off completely from the options with further downsizing expected in the future. At present, the V6 will be mated to a seven speed automatic transmission system which will give it an acceleration of around 7 seconds when sprinting from 0-60 mph.
The powertrain is rated at 17/24 in the city/highway for the FWD while the AWD is rated at similar figures as the previous model’s.
2016 Infiniti QX70 price and Release Date
The price of the new 2016 Infiniti QX70 is put at an excess of 50,000 USD. Furthermore, we should expect the new QX70 release date to be somewhere around the second half of this year (2016).
Main competitors for the new 2016 Infiniti QX70 will be Volvo XC90 and Porsche Cayenne. Let’s lie in waiting to see what will transpire then.
