It looks like the company has big plans with the 2019 Infiniti QX70. As you probably know, this crossover has been discontinued recently, in favor of QX60, which seems more family friendly. Just one year later, rumors about its revival appeared on the network. It looks like the company plans a complete reorganization of its lineup, which would put this crossover in a similar, but slightly different position than before. As you probably know, there is a big demand for coupe-like crossovers in these days and the Japanese manufacturer believes that this nameplate would be perfect for this occasion. At this point, we don’t know too many things about the new model, so there is plenty of space left for speculations. Most likely, the new 2019 Infiniti QX70 will come already in the next year.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2019 Infiniti QX70 will continue as a mid-size crossover. The previous version was quite sleek, but the new one should come with an even more accentuated rear-end layout, with a sloping roofline and couple-like overall shape. In terms of mechanical characteristics, we expect to see a lot of similarities with the QX60, which is also about to come completely redesigned soon. Two models would share the platform and complete mechanics, as well as many styling details, particularly at the front.
This aspect of the new model is still a little bit tricky. The whole Infiniti brand is in some kinda renewing process. Therefore, the 2019 Infiniti QX70 would be one of the models that will actually introduce a new design language. What does this actually mean, it is hard to say at this point. This brand is famous for its pretty curvy approach, which is something completely opposite to most other carmakers. Will the new model continues in the same way, or we are about to see something sharper and bolder, it is hard to say at this point.
Another aspect that is a complete mystery. Infiniti models are generally known for great interior quality, especially when it comes to materials choice. So, we expect nothing less from the new 2019 Infiniti QX70. Of course, count on a completely new interior design, with a new dashboard, full of tech features. In terms of base interior characteristics, this model will feature two rows of seating, which is a common layout for those coupe-like crossovers. On the other side, we count on a full load of standard features, starting from the Nissan’s new ProPilot autonomous-driving system and many other driving aids.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Engine
The previous generation featured Nissan’s well-known 3.7-liter V6. The QX60 still comes with a 3.5-liter engine, in a version with around 295 horsepower. Most likely, this unit will carry on and find the place under the 2019 Infiniti QX70. Of course, some tweaks are expected, so a max output should go over 300 horsepower. Some reports also suggest a new 3.0-liter V6, which should be able to deliver around 400 hp. Besides V6 engines, the new model is expected to come in a four-cylinder version as well. Many believe it would be a new 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, which comes with variable compression. Such design guarantees a great combination of fuel economy and power. Most likely, this engine will be tuned to somewhere around 260 horsepower. In terms of transmission, an automatic gearbox seems more likely than a CVT.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Release Date and Price
Despite reports about the 2019 Infiniti QX70’s arrival in the next year, keep in mind that we are still waiting for the official confirmation. In terms of price, some rough estimation would go around 50.000 dollars for the base version.
