With the JX, Infiniti was one of the first three-row luxury crossovers on the market, and it has now been updated and renamed to become the 2017 QX60. The QX60 shares its underpinnings with the Nissan Pathfinder and, like its less-luxurious sibling, offers front- or all-wheel drive as well as a hybrid model.

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 comes in only one trim level, with a starting price of $43,100. A 3.5-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque powers both the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions. Because of the use of direct injection, the power output has increased by 30 hp from last year but the EPA rated fuel efficiency of  20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the interstate, according to the EPA.

"The 2017 Infiniti QX60 is a good SUV if you’re looking for a smooth cruiser with plenty of interior space for your entire family." U.S News

The 2017 Infiniti QX60 boasts three rows of seating, sporty handling, a distinctive design, and a comprehensive set of technology and driver-assist systems. The QX60 is powered by a 295-horsepower V6 engine mated to a CVT transmission. RWD is standard, however, AWD may be upgraded for $1,800 more. A four-cylinder engine and a single electric motor combine to provide 250 horsepower in the QX60 Hybrid.

The 2017 Infiniti’s QX60 comes with starting prices of $43,100. The 2017 QX60's five-year gas, insurance, maintenance, and repair expenditures are expected to be around $27,330. It goes up against the likes of Acura MDX, the Lexus RX 350, and the Lincoln MKX. The QX60 stands out because of its plush, leather-lined cabin with comfortable seating.

Because there is only one trim available, the powertrains are the sole option. Although the AWD system isn't especially effective, it does aid in inclement weather. The AWD trim makes more sense if you reside in a state where the weather gets snowy. Aside from that, the FWD trim is also a good choice.

“If you’re looking for a pillowy soft, easy-driving SUV, you’ll find a companion with the 2017 Infiniti QX60. Steering takes only a light touch, and the brakes are quite strong.”- U.S News

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Engine and Transmission

The new 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions. The revived engine, dubbed VQ35DD, shares fewer than half of its parts with the V-6 from last year.

2017 Infinity QX60 Engine bay

Although the V-6 now has direct injection, it is still partnered with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). All-wheel drive is optional while Front-wheel drive is standard. A low-volume QX60 Hybrid is also available, powered by a 2.5L l4 supercharged engine and a low-output electric motor that produces a combined 250 horsepower and 243 lb-ft torque.

With 296 horsepower, the Infiniti QX60 is the second most powerful vehicle in its class. The Lincoln MKX, with 303 horsepower, is the most powerful vehicle in the segment. The Acura MDX and Lexus RX 350 are both significantly more lively and responsive than the Infiniti. When it comes to torque, Lincoln once again outperforms Infiniti by producing 278 lb-ft of torque.

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Acceleration

The new motor in the 2017 QX60 accelerated the 4654-pound vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds and can get to 100 mph in 18.0 seconds. The quarter-mile run is completed in 15.5 seconds at 93 mph. While the top speed is limited to 120 mph. The engine capacity is similar across the range apart from the 3.7 V6 in the Lincoln MKX.

The 2017 Lincoln MKX is the fastest to complete the 0-60 mph run with a time of 6.3 seconds which is 0.1 second faster than the Acura MDX. The Infinit QX60 is faster than the Lexus RX350 but fails to match the figures from the Acura MDX and the Lincoln MKX. Coming to the Qurater mile times, the Acura MDX and the Lincoln MKX are evenly matched at 14.9 seconds while the Lexus RX350 is 0.1 seconds slower than the Infiniti QX60. 

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Ride and Handling

The QX60 continues to emphasis comfort over dynamic ability, with a soft ride and little steering effort. It's relatively simple to navigate busy parking lots, but it can be difficult to maintain driver confidence on curvy two-lane roads or crowded motorways.

Last year's suspension modifications improved the crossover's handling slightly. The body roll is reduced, and the overall grip has improved. It is one of the best vehicles to ride in because of the ride quality and the interior features. There is very little jarring or vibrations in the cabin, which is excellent.

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Braking

The QX60's front brakes are 12.6 inches in diameter, while the rear brakes are 12.1 inches in diameter. The brakes have a spongy feel to them and lack the accuracy you'd expect, especially when you press hard on the pedal. The high 4,383 pound curb weight only adds to the misery.

In combined city and highway driving, the Infiniti QX60 gets 22 miles per gallon, which is respectable but somewhat below average. In comparison, it is one of the most fuel-efficient automobiles in its class. The Lexus RX350, which gets 23 mpg, is the only car that gets greater mileage.

The Lexus RX350, which gets 23 mpg, is the only car that gets greater mileage. The Lincoln MKX is inefficient in terms of fuel consumption and has the shortest range among the competitors. The Acura has the same fuel efficiency as the Infiniti.

2017 Infiniti QX60 Interior

“This is a luxurious, thoughtfully designed interior. It not only looks good, but it's also easy to find all the controls. We also like the easy access to the third row.”- Edmunds

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Seating and Comfort

The QX60 excels in terms of comfort and space. The seats are cushy, and there are plenty of soft materials throughout the vehicle. All trims include basic heating and ventilation. The leather seating surface not only feels luxurious, but it also gives the cabin a polished appearance. Although the room is adequate till the second row, the third row is unsuitable for people.

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV offers three-row seating

When it comes to shoulder room and legroom for all three rows, the 2017 Infiniti QX60 outperforms the competition. The suv also has the most interior space of the four. Two of the competition automobiles, on the other hand, have only five seats. In addition, the Infiniti has the largest legroom in the second row. The first row of the Lexus, on the other hand, is significantly larger.

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Infotainment

The QX60 Hybrid has a 7-inch screen that is tiny but rich. Only when the touch screen is allowed its own time to operate does it work successfully. The system lags and freezes at times due to sluggish MMI performance. Bluetooth connectivity, GPS, and satellite radio are all standard features. Unfortunately, current connectivity options like as Android Auto and Apple Carplay are not available.

Push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, six speakers, a CD player, Bluetooth audio streaming, four USB connections, HD Radio, and satellite radio are all standard on the QX60.

2017 Infiniti QX60 SUV Cargo volume

Being a crossover, the cargo capacity should naturally be no concern for the Infiniti QX60. The car features a segment-leading 76.5 ft. cube of cargo volume behind the 2nd row. Loading angles are accurately designed and the motion-activated liftgate is certainly a welcome feature.

The arched window frame at the rear of the side windows is one of the QX60's primary stylistic features.

In comparison, the QX60 is the segment's heaviest and longest vehicle. The Acura MDX, with a width of 77.8 inches, is the segment's biggest vehicle. The ground clearance of the Infiniti QX60 is 6.5 inches, which is significantly less than most of its competitors and barely qualifies the vehicle as a crossover.

2017 Infiniti QX60 Competition

2017 Infiniti QX60 VS 2017 Acura MDX

At first view, the Acura MDX and the Infiniti QX60 appear to be identical. Although the Acura looks like a station wagon, it drives like a sports car. The 290 horsepower engine paired with the 7-speed transmission is an exciting combination that makes the car entertaining to drive in town or on the highway. The QX60, on the other hand, is a far better family car thanks to its increased legroom and utility features. Because both cars are priced the same, the consumer must choose between them based on what he values most: space and practicality or sportiness.

2017 Acura MDX 

2017 Infiniti QX60 VS 2017 Lexus RX 350

In terms of exterior design, the Lexus RX 350 easily outperforms the QX60 Hybrid. The Lexus looks more like a crossover than the Infiniti, which seems like a minivan. The Lexus appears to be far better than the Infiniti, with best-in-class mileage and a powerful engine. The QX60, on the other hand, excels in the third row, easy-to-use infotainment system, and trunk space. 

2017 Lexus RX 350

2017 Infiniti QX60 VS 2017 Lincoln MKX

The 2017 Lincoln MKX has a bold and stylish design. With its intimidating front fascia, the car looks like a proper compact SUV. The Lincoln's interior is excellent, and just looking inside the cabin reveals how effectively all of the components are laid out. The engine is powerful on its own, but the gearbox falls short by holding gear for too long. However, the MKX falls short of the QX60 in terms of practicality and usage. The Lincoln has a small boot and only seats 5 people.

2017 Infiniti QX60 Final Verdict

The Infiniti QX60 is a unique and peculiar looking vehicle that might not necessarily suit everyone’s taste. But, on the inside, the car is destined to appear amazing value for money. The car has been designed to ferry big families in comfort and that it does extremely well. The Infiniti QX60 is best suited to urban environments where it is able to maneuver around with ease due to a light steering wheel and soft suspension. It is not at all a sporty car and enthusiasts are bound to be disappointed.
