2019 Infiniti QX60 and QX80 Limited Editions look hotter than ever

Infiniti decided that they would give the 2019 versions of the QX60 and QX80 more style, especially with the introduction of the new Limited edition at the 2018 New York Auto Show. Some of these upgrades would be the eye catching parts on the exterior, and the high quality leather that can be found throughout the cabin.

Infiniti decided to give the QX60 Limited dark chrome bits around its body - from the grille, to the fog lights surrounds, and door moldings. The automaker also gave its roof rack and cross bars some dark paint, while the lower portion of the rear bumper is gloss black. The Limited model has been given a set of 20 inch multi spoke wheels too. That’s all the new things it gets on the outside.

As for the interior, the company installs Stone coloured, semi aniline leather seats that are contrasted with the stitching. This also extends to the door panels. The upholstery is then accented with dark silver wood trim as well as a black headliner. Under the hood, the QX60 Limited remains with the same 3.5 liter V6 that has an output of 296 horsepower (220 kilowatts) and 270 pound-feet of torque.

Infiniti updates styling of its 2018 QX80 SUV for a bolder appearance

There is both good and bad news for fans of the Infiniti QX80 sports utility vehicle. Bad news is that this luxury SUV remains at its current second generation even after eight years in the market. Good news is that for the 2018 model year, the Infiniti QX80 is getting a major refresh. Infiniti has just unveiled the latest iteration of the Infiniti QX80 SUV at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show.

Thankfully, what Infiniti implemented in the latest iteration of its premium full-size SUV is more than just a refresh as it’s a major update that involves exterior styling. According to the premium carmaker, the 2018 Infiniti QX80 is taking the brand’s ‘Powerful Elegance’ design language in a bold new direction, thereby creating a dynamic, modern and commanding exterior appearance. Overall, the new Infiniti QX80 now comes with bigger and bolder looks.

To this extent, the styling changes made on the new Infiniti QX80 are very much noticeable up front. For instance, the front end of the new 2018 Infiniti QX80 is now dominated by a larger grille, covering more space on the façade of the SUV. Compared to the headlamps of the outgoing QX80, the ones on the 2018 iteration have been raised to be more in line with the top end of the massive grille.

The Infiniti QX50 compact crossover has been in the market since 2014, and has not been given a facelift since then. After being in the market for almost four years, the SUV will be needing some updates to keep up with its competitors, though the company did say that the update will come in 2019, and that they will completely skip the 2018 model year.

This statement was confirmed by Infiniti on Tuesday when they said that they are not considering a 2018 model year QX50, but will focus on a better version of the vehicle for the 2019 model year, says Motor Authority. Engineers and designers will make sure that the new SUV will resemble the QX50 Concept we saw earlier this year at Detroit.

Right now, you are probably wondering what to expect from the 2019 model year. Well, sources say that it will come powered by Infiniti’s new Variable Compression-Turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine that they refer to as VC-Turbo - this was first previewed last August. For improved performance and fuel economy, the technology changes the cylinder compression ratio. As for performance, the first production unit is unfortunately less powerful than the 3.7-liter V6 found on the outgoing QX50 with 325 horsepower (242 kilowatts). That being said, it has 268 horsepower (200 kilowatts) and 288 pound-feet (390 Newton-metres) of torque.

Infiniti revealed that tomorrow it will be presenting two models, both of which have those striking new faces. These two have been designed to have a “good and evil” pairing with the objective of being able to seduce while also shock. The two models are the Infiniti Q50 and the QX70. Both of them are first one-off models that resulted from the creative partnership of two exceptionally premium brands. Specifically, this is the well-known leather and furniture specialist of Italy, Poltrona Frau, and the luxury performance automaker Infiniti.

According to Shiro Nakamura, who is the Chief Creative Officer of Infiniti, the project was a great chance for two luxury and premium brands to be able to work together. This particular project, he added, began in a natural manner and is mainly founded on the respect and admiration each brand had with their respective vision and spirit.

The design team at Infiniti was inspired by the modernity displayed by Poltrona Frau, he continued, as well as the awe-inspiring craftsmanship and the excellent historic heritage. Nakamura continued by saying that with the two brands having a common goal, it was important that the result would be exhibited as pure artwork. In addition, it needed to be shown at a special event as part of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile di Milano.

The 1962 Chris-Craft “Holiday” boat will soon cruise the seas powered by a V8 engine of Infiniti QX56. The hot-rodding of QX56’s engine in the Holiday is a collaboration project of students from Tennessee Technical Center-Nashville and Nashville State Community College with their instructors and some Infiniti personnel. The students have completed the first phase of the project.

After the 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine was removed from the QX56, it was dispatched to Bracket Marine in Westbrook, Maine for a trial fitting. The engine’s bell housing was also modified so that it could be used with the ZF/Hurth marine transmission.  The project is currently on its second phase. The engine is undergoing “marinization,” during which water-cooled exhaust manifolds are fabricated and a closed cooling system is adapted.

It will then be sent to Infiniti’s engine facility in Decherd, Tennessee, where its horsepower and torque will be tested to make sure it remains at par with factory specs. The engine will go back to Maine, where it will be installed in Holiday’s hull, which is currently undergoing total restoration. Following the restoration, the students will commence the third phase, the reassembly.

From off-road capability, what SUV carmakers really brag about now is these cars' towing capacity. In 1990, all companies that were represented in this segment boast of having off-road capability.

The luxurious features and the price of the car mostly weren't considered at all. But as the SUV market is now on its way to a full recovery, the focus is now on these cars' towing capacity. The response to this trend is Infiniti's new-generation 2011 QX56.

Despite being regarded as a luxury vehicle with its stitched leather seats, woodwork laced with powdered silver and a buttery-smooth ride, the QX56 is still a terrific work partner as it is capable of towing 8,500 pounds in two-wheel or all-wheel drive. This represents a reduction from the 2010 model, which offers 9,000 pounds of towing.
