Car and Driver: 2016 Infiniti QX60 Priced Under $44,000, Hybrid Not Dead After All


Recommended Posts

Infiniti QX60 se renueva en diseño, dinámica y confort


Infiniti’s three-row QX60, which packs Nissan Pathfinder bones underneath a more-tailored suit, continues with minor of changes for 2016. It starts at $43,595 with front-wheel drive, or $200 more than 2015.



The same standard features and trim levels join a few cosmetic tweaks. The QX60 borrows a shifter from the Q60 coupe, bolts on new bumpers and wheel designs, installs bi-xenon headlamps, weaves stitching on the upper dash, and offers two new colors that miraculously aren’t shades of gray, as nearly every new car wears these days (choose between Jade Green or Hagane Blue). On board is a 3.5-liter 265-horsepower V-6 and CVT. All-wheel drive adds $1800.


2016 Infiniti QX60


Contrary to earlier information, the QX60 hybrid never really went away. Infiniti now tells us that despite deleting the model from its website, the Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee, continued cranking them out on special order (and for China, where the model is sold exclusively as a hybrid). Unless you’re in northern California, hybrid inventory will be tight, though, since Infiniti doesn’t expect many takers in the new $2-per-gallon America. In 2015, according to WardsAuto, just two percent of the 41,770 QX60 models sold were hybrids.

The hybrid’s price balloons by $6650 to $53,045 because the Premium and Premium Plus packages are now standard. Those include a 15-speaker Bose stereo, memory settings, heated steering wheel, driver’s power lumbar, remote start, reverse tilt mirrors, easy exit/entry, rain-sensing wipers, 360-degree cameras, parking sensors, and an 8.0-inch navigation touchscreen with traffic, voice recognition, and Infiniti Connection telematics (stolen vehicle alert, remote unlocking, etc.). All-wheel drive adds $1400. A supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder with an electric motor combine for 250 horsepower. Fuel-economy estimates for 2016 aren’t out, but the 2015 FWD hybrid’s 26/28 rating bests the regular car’s 21/27.


Newly optional on both models are auto-braking with pedestrian detection and predictive forward collision warning, which claims to scan two cars ahead. Previously, the QX60 was offered with a regular-grade forward-collision warning and Intelligent Brake Assist, which primes the brakes but cannot apply them. But that feature is available is you spring for the Deluxe Technology Package ($6900) or the hybrid’s Deluxe Technology and Theater Package ($8100). Look for this latest QX60 at dealers this spring.
