Leaked: 2011 Infiniti QX

Article by Christian A., on February 26, 2010

2011 Infiniti QX is able to show that it has strength and power considering that it was made not simply to draw attention but to hold it as well. It has a dynamic design and is big enough to carry eight people including any luggage they may have.

The body is unique in such a way that the interior offers convenience and luxury. For example, the semi-aniline leather seats are perforated. Other features include the Around View Monitor and the Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System. Those who like to listen to music can do so with the Bose 2-channel and 13-speaker Premium Audio System.

The QX has a DVD entertainment system that has 7-inch dual color monitors and enables shows to be played at the same time and even through different sources. The first and second row provide enough room for passengers and space for luggage.

Powering the 2011 QX is the 5.6-liter 400-horsepower V8 engine that works with the brand’s own Variable Valve Event & Lift and Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG), both paired with the 7-speed automatic transmission.

The result is that when compared to the 2010 QX, the 2011 QX has 25% more horsepower and gives an additional 10% in terms of fuel economy. In addition, the towing capacity of the 2011 QX, for the 2WD and 4WD versions, has been measured to be 8,500 pounds.

What’s more, it has a Hydraulic Body Motion Control system, a first for any Infiniti model. This system is available for the 2WD and 4WD, but only as part of its Deluxe Touring Package. This same package also offers 22-inch wheels, tires, plus a host other features.

Overall, the system lessens the body lean of the 2011 QX when turning to provide a ride that is more comfortable. The 8-inch WVGA color display with touch screen capability is just one of the many entertainment and technological features that is standard in the 2011 QX.

The information systems can be accessed with the Infiniti Controller, which can also be used for the other features. Its Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System comes with both the XM NavTraffic with Real-Time Traffic Information and the XM NavWeather with Real-Time Weather and 3-day forecast.

It needs to be said though that subscription for the XM is needed. Furthermore, it also has the Zagat Survey Restaurant Guide. Of course, there is the standard Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System in addition to the XM Satellite Radio.

The USB allows an iPod Interface to be connected as well as other compatible devices. Streaming Audio is made possible through Bluetooth. Aside from the standard features, the 2011 QX also comes equipped with new and advanced technology systems.

There is for example the Lane Departure Prevention and Lane Departure Warning system. Infiniti is also offering a Blind Spot Warning system. What this does is that it has an indicator light that lights up when the system senses that there is another vehicle in a blind spot.

Once the driver is alerted to this, the driver can then activate the turn signal wherein the indicator then flashes and the system gives off a loud warning sound. The 2011 QX also offers a number of optional systems that are geared for safety.

There is the Distance Control Assist (DCA), Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts, Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW), and Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range). Infiniti has set the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices for the 2011 QX. The QX56 2WD comes in at $56,700 while QX56 4WD is priced at $59,800.
