Infiniti promised a full reveal for its swoopy, fashionable QX55 crossover on
November 11 November 17 (Replace: Infiniti moved the reveal date to keep away from battle with the corporate’s upcoming monetary assertion). Earlier than it lastly reveals itself to the world, although, TFLcar reader Connor Adcock caught it testing on Interstate 40, not too removed from Nissan’s Smyrna meeting plant. Although these two images, we achieve a bit extra perception as to how Infiniti’s coupe-like QX50 by-product will take form.
One other replace: The QX55 will likely be revealed at 5:55 PM PST. Get it? You see, as a result of that is the QX’55’.
So, what can we find out about it up to now? Nothing is completely official but (aside from this teaser picture), however we all know it’s immediately associated to the QX50. We will infer that it’ll use a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine, then, in addition to a repeatedly variable transmission in entrance or all-wheel drive configurations. The QX50 produces 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, and we count on no extra and no much less right here.
Regardless of being a “coupe-like” crossover, it seems to be like practicality received’t be fully absent over its standard crossover sibling. The QX55 has a noticeably lengthy tail stretching from the sting of the roof to the tailgate, that means rear passenger area might not be as compromised as we’ve seen in a few of its competitors. When the 2022 Infiniti QX55 does attain sellers, it can compete in opposition to fashions just like the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and the BMW X4.
We count on a lot of the automobile from the D-pillar ahead to match the QX50, and that ought to translate to the inside format. Briefly, when you’ve already seen the QX50, then the QX55 shouldn’t be drastically totally different. We’ll know extra on November 11, so keep tuned for extra updates.
