YOKOHAMA, Japan — Infiniti's next-generation QX60 crossover will get more muscular, premium styling that heralds a reboot for the brand.
Infiniti Chairman Peyman Kargar expects next year's arrival of the QX60 three-row midsize crossover, along with the launch of the new QX55 coupe-styled compact crossover, to stoke sales while winning new customers.
"We are beginning a new era for Infiniti," Kargar said. "We are going to conquest additional customers, clearly. That's really one of the important objectives we have, and this is related to the additional extra volume we are targeting. We are very confident in this."
Infiniti previewed the new design last week by unveiling the QX60 Monograph, a platinum-hued, close-to-market design study for the next-generation QX60.
Updating the QX60 is a critical step in rejuvenating Infiniti, said Kargar, who took over as global brand chief in June. The nameplate is the brand's No. 2 seller worldwide behind the QX50 crossover, with cumulative sales of 400,000 globally since its launch in March 2012.
