Infiniti QX70 loses the V8 engine for the 2015MY, gets a $45,850 price tag

Article by Christian A., on May 25, 2014

Infiniti announced that for the 2015MY, its well-known QX70 will not be available with the powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine that generated 390 hp. As a result, the 2015 Infiniti QX70 will be powered only by the 3.7-liter V6 engine and will arrive with a price tag of $45,850 for the RWD model, while the AWD version costs $47,300.

Destination and handling charges of $995 are not included. The reason that Infiniti decided to drop the V8 engine is quite simple, as almost all the models sold, were powered by the V6 engine. Moreover, the United States was the only market to sell the V8-powered Infiniti QX70.

The current V6 engine delivers 325 hp and is bolted to a 7-speed automatic transmission. If the V8 had a fuel economy of 14/20 mpg city/highway, the V6 engine offers 17/24 mpg city/highway for the RWD version and 16/22 mpg when equipped with the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD).

Also available for the 2015MY Infiniti QX70 are four special equipment packages: Premium Package, Deluxe Touring Package, Technology Package and a new Sport Package, which offers unique dark finish exterior accents, 21-inch dark finish aluminum-alloy wheels, Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) and climate-controlled front sport seats.
