Infiniti's lineup is receiving a critical redesign this year with the arrival of the 2022 QX60 three-row crossover. The luxury brand has loaded the 2022 QX60 with more standard features and a $2,500 premium over the outgoing model.
The redesigned crossover, which arrives in U.S. dealerships this fall, receives an updated powertrain, a more luxurious interior and technology upgrades. It is offered with a single engine option — a 3.5-liter V-6 that delivers 295 hp. The engine is mated to a new nine-speed transmission that Infiniti said delivers improved acceleration and a smoother driving experience. Here's a roundup of snippets of initial QX60 reviews from the automotive media.
"The new QX60's steering has a nice weight and the ride is firm and planted, yet somehow both lack any real communication or connection with the road. It's as if Infiniti was trying to create the sport-tuned feeling but neglected to include any of the actual sport tuning. This is fine — it's not like the QX60 is a sports car or should even be evaluated as such — but it is an odd side of the performance line to toe.
"To Infiniti's credit, the QX60 never feels too harsh and strikes a decent balance of compliance over bumps and controlled body movement around bends. Road and wind noise are also nicely managed. I think the QX60 could benefit from the addition of an adaptive suspension to its list of options, but I also think just as strong a case could be made that most shoppers at this price will come away perfectly happy with the SUV's taut road feel."
