2017 Infiniti QX80 and Q50 Signature Editions now in Chicago

Article by Christian A., on February 13, 2017

Expect the latest safety and assistance features with a new set of shiny shoes to match! As the 2017 Chicago Auto Show opens this weekend, Infiniti steps out with two new special bundles for its luxury crossover and sedan models. To stay on the game, Nissan’s luxury division has loaded the Infiniti QX80 and Q50 Signature Editions with more options at a special price.

The 2017 Infiniti Q50 Signature Edition is exclusively offered on the 300hp 3.0 liter V6 variant. The package includes a new set of 17-inch alloy wheels among other exclusive interior amenities. Inside, the new Q50 Signature edition already comes with a tinted moon roof and a new Navigation system equipped with voice recognition that you can also use when changing gears.

For the rear wheel drive sedan, pricing for the Signature Edition package starts at $39,605 after $905 destination charges. The all-wheel drive on the other hand is priced at $41,605.

At the same event, Infiniti once again brings the QX80 Signature Edition after its successful premiere in 2016. Unlike with the sedan, the luxury division is offering more amenities on the 7-seater/ 8-seater crossover.

The exterior upgrade features a new set of dark 22-inch alloy wheels, 275/50R22 performance tires and chrome mirror casings. Interestingly, Infiniti will be offering this Signature Edition in four color varieties including Majestic White, Black Obsidian, Graphite Shadow and the Hermosa Blue variant.

For its interior upholstery, the QX80 Signature Edition will already come in Saddle Tan leather finish. Some of its new features include the latest driver assistance technologies such as Lane Departure Prevention, Blind Spot Intervention and Predictive Forward Collision Warning.

For better safety, Infiniti has also equipped the crossover with Forward Emergency Braking w/Pedestrian Detection technology. The rest of the amenities that are part of the package includes Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning as well as Backup Collision Intervention system.

Unfortunately, pricing for the Infiniti QX80 Signature Edition is not yet available at this time. As far as we can tell, the special edition crossover will be available in the US around May of this year and that the only powertrain available would be the 400hp, 5.6 liter V8 engine. Even so, interested buyers of the QX80 can still have a choice between a four-wheel drive or a two-wheel drive variant.

While we wait for further announcements, at least we have some good news to share about the sedan; the Q50 Signature Edition is now on sale and orders are currently being taken. Head off to the nearest Nissan dealership to get one for your garage.

INFINITI debuts Q50 and QX80 Signature Editions at 2017 Chicago Auto Show

INFINITI today announced the addition of the new 2017 Q50 3.0t Signature Edition and the 2017 QX80 5.6 Signature Edition, which offer a blend of popular equipment and unique design features. Both models will make their public debuts at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, which runs from Feb. 11 to 20 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

“INFINITI’s Signature Editions signify something special for our customers and deliver on our promise to provide an unparalleled level of sophistication with exclusive new content,” said Randy Parker, vice president, INFINITI Americas. “This year, these unique models feature the most sought-after selections to enhance the driver’s experience for our ever-popular Q50 sport sedan and QX80 full-size luxury SUV.”

2017 Q50 3.0t Signature Edition
The new INFINITI Q50 3.0t Signature Edition offers a range of highly desirable features, including a power-sliding tinted glass moonroof, INFINITI InTouch Navigation with 3D building graphics, INFINITI InTouch Services including six months of safety, security and convenience services, SiriusXM Traffic, Voice Recognition for navigation functions, Navi Synchronized Adaptive Shift Control, 60/40 split-fold rear seat, and 17-inch bright finish aluminum-alloy wheels with all-season run-flat tires.

The new sport sedan model has INFINITI’s award winning 300-horsepower VR-series 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine and is available with a choice of rear-wheel drive or INFINITI’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.

“Building on the Q50’s, award-winning performance and engineering excellence, we saw an opportunity to combine our sport sedan’s most popular features with even more distinguished style,” said Parker. “We are continuously looking for ways to empower the drive for our customers, and we did just that with the addition of the Q50 3.0t Signature Edition to the 2017 Q50 lineup.”

Along with its standard 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine, which was recently named one of Wards 10 Best Engines, the new Signature Edition is equipped with LED headlights, LED rear brake lights and an Advanced Climate Control System.

Pricing for the Q50 3.0t Signature Edition, available this month, is $38,700* for the rear-wheel drive model and $40,700 for the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive model.

2017 QX80 Signature Edition
The INFINITI QX80 Signature Edition returns for a second year, bringing unique content such as a leather-appointed, high-contrast Saddle Tan interior, chrome outside rearview mirror caps, clear High Mounted Stop Light and dark-finish 22-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels with 275/50R22 all-season performance tires.

“The first iteration of the QX80 Signature Edition, offered in 2016, was a big success and has helped maintain our full-size SUV’s sales momentum in the new year,” said Parker. “The QX80 set an all-time U.S. sales record of more than 16,700 units in 2016 – an increase of more than 7 percent.”

The QX80 Signature Edition includes a suite of INFINITI’s popular driver assistance technologies, including Backup Collision Intervention (BCI), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range), Distance Control Assist (DCA), Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), Blind Spot Intervention (BSI), Land Departure Warning (LPW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP).

The QX80 Signature Edition is available as a seven- or eight-passenger vehicle and is offered in 2WD and 4WD versions, both of which are equipped with an advanced 400-horsepower 5.6-liter DOHC V8 engine featuring Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG™) and VVEL (Variable Valve Event and Lift) technology. QX80 4WD models feature INFINITI All-Mode 4WD® with computer-controlled transfer case and three settings (Auto, 4H and 4L).

The QX80 Signature Edition is offered in four colors – Hermosa Blue, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian and Majestic White – and it will be available at INFINITI retailers nationwide beginning in May. Pricing will be made available closer to the on-sale date.
