After the redesign inspired by the Monograph concept, we don’t expect huge changes on the 2023 Infiniti QX60. Instead, the company will shift focus and resources to the redesign of the QX80 full-size luxury SUV. The QX60 will still bring a few small updates compared to the first edition of the second generation.
The SUV belongs to the premium segment. And it didn’t disappoint. The update moved the spotlight to the QX60 and Monograph concept. Now, Nissan and Infiniti are trying to draw more attention to further releases.
Highlights of the 2023 Infiniti QX60 are the three-row seating layout, with the capacity to take seven passengers. If you pick chairs for the middle row, occupants are getting more space. The company also launched a new lineup of trim levels and the Autograph is the most impressive package, sitting at the top of the class. Unfortunately, there is no hybrid engine for the 2022 YM. Fans are expecting to see it sooner or later. The price is another downside of the QX60, but you cannot expect to get a luxury SUV for pennies.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Specs
A 3.5-liter V6 is one of the most reliable engines in the market. Nissan is proud of it and uses a six-pot mill for many flagship vehicles. But, it creates 295 hp, which is enough for the non-premium class. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 definitely needed more. The competition is offering way more options, and some mid-size three-row luxury SUVs can produce more than 500 hp. Even for the standard configuration, such vehicles need to differ from the non-premium models.
So, the QX60 definitely needs something else. A hybrid engine is definitely an option. It is a surprise that the second generation didn’t bring it as one of the highlights. Fans hope that the company realized the mistake. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid would increase both power outputs and gas mileage. Front and all-wheel drive remain available options. The new Monograph platform might even allow engineers to place a V8 under the bonnet. But, according to rumors, Nissan will drop a 5.6-liter plant from its SUVs. Instead, a turbo-size is jumping in.
Trim Levels and Accessories
Pure, Luxe, Sensory and Autograph are models available for the QX60. Experts believe the same lineup is going to be carried over for the 2023 season. Here are the highlights and possible upgrades for all trim levels.
The Pure model comes with 18-inch wheels, leather seats, and LED lights. The best standard option is the panoramic moonroof, which adds an additional dose of luxury. The power liftgate makes the cargo access easier. Front seats feature heating and lumbar support. The center of the infotainment system is a 12-inch screen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard services, as well as parking sensors, front and back.
The 2023 Infiniti QX60 Luxe replaces wheels with 20-inch rims. A 360-degree camera is standard and the gauge display is larger. Front seats get ventilation. Navigation is standard for this package. The main upgrade is the ProPilot assist with advanced options, such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and many more driver aid accessories.
Next, we have the Sensory package. Front seats are coming with further upgrades. this time, it is a massage. Premium leather is wrapping the steering wheel and seats. Smartphone charging is wireless. Bose installs an audio system with 17 speakers. Only Autograph trim beats this offer with a contrasting roof, adaptive headlights, HUD, captain’s chairs in the middle row, and the towing package.
2023 Infiniti QX60 Colors
You will have a wide choice of colors for the 2023 Infiniti QX60. The company could mix up things a bit, but a shade or two could be added. Two-tone paintjobs are stunning. Standard colors are Majestic White, Deep Bordeaux, Grand Blue, Glacier White, Moonbow Blue, Liquid Platinum, Warm Titanium, Graphite Shadow, Mineral Black and Mocha Almond. You can mix Black Obsidian as the contrasting shade to some of those paintjobs.
The 2023 Infiniti QX60 is going to cost under $50,000, which is a good sign. Minor updates are not going to affect the pricing list. Luxe is an excellent mid-range choice with a price tag of $55,000 and with $3,000 more, you can buy the Sensory version. Autograph sits at the top of the range and costs $63,000. A hybrid unit is going to increase the cost of the SUV and make all versions more expensive, for at least $3,000.
