2020 Infiniti QX60 Redesign – Update For Compact Crossover | The QX60 is a family crossover lineup from Infiniti. It has been on available the market for several years. From the looks of it, it will stay on the market for years to come. Despite being a relatively new contender in the family crossover segment, the QX60 has been able to stand out from the rest. Soon enough, we will see the lineup’s next iteration: the 2020 Infiniti QX60.

2020 Infiniti QX60 Redesign
Will there be a major redesign for the 2020 Infiniti QX60? We doubt it. A major redesign usually happens once in a few years. Currently, the QX60 is only more or less five years old. It is too soon for the lineup to get redesigned. Rather than getting a major redesign, we think the upcoming QX60 will get updates, upgrades, and tweaks here and there. Indeed, small changes will be there but they will not change the overall look of the family crossover.
The exterior of the current QX60 is elegant. Despite being used for years, the elegance of the lineup has aged well. You can just find the subtle elegance from the Previous QX60, which is one of the many reasons why the lineup is able to stand out from the rest.
At the front, the 2019 model has a puckered grille and well-designed headlights. On its profile, it has long, chrome-colored strips which are a feature many Infiniti cars have although the QX60 wear it differently. The roofline slopes smoothly toward the crossover’s rear end, with the tailgate completing the style with a gentle curve.
The look of the Previous QX60 has, without a doubt, aged well. Since we are unlikely to see a major redesign for the 2020 QX60, we can expect it to inherit the exterior we described above. This is not a problem considering the look is very good for a family crossover. That being said, the 2020 QX60 can benefit from some updates, upgrades, and tweaks to make it even more fitting to be a 2020 family crossover.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Interior
The inside is unlikely to be drastically changed as well. There will be three rows of comfortable seats, lots of switches, lots of knobs, and of course, high-quality materials. The Previous QX60 has enough space for everyone, although the available space may not as large as other family crossovers. Despite being on the lower side in terms of available space, the Previous QX60 is able to provide a comfortable driving experience.
We can expect the above for the upcoming QX60. At the very least, the upcoming QX60 should be able to be as comfortable as the Previous QX60. It would be nice if it comes with more available space although it is unlikely to happen.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Specs
In terms of engine, it seems the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will continue to use the 3.5L, V6 engine that has been used in the previous models. It is not something bad, though. The engine is reliable and capable of doing its tasks. It has an output of up to 295 horsepower, which is decent for a family crossover vehicle. Just as the previous models, this engine will be paired with an automatic continuously variable transmission or CVT.
As for the system, the default is likely to be a front-wheel drive one. All-wheel drive will be available but it will be optional. Whatever the system is, we can expect a decent driving experience from the upcoming QX60. The problem with the current QX60 is that it has an unnatural lightness in steering. Will this problem be carried to the upcoming QX60? Unfortunately, we don’t know. Only time will tell.
We can expect the 2020 Infiniti QX60 will come with lots of features that are found in the Previous QX60. Features such as 18-inch wheels, heated seats, synthetic leather upholstery, an 8-inch screen with the up-to-date infotainment system, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, forward-collusion warning system, and USB ports will be standard.
Of course, there will be more features than the above for the higher trim. The higher trim should come with features such as a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, active lane control, adaptive cruise control a premium audio system, and rear-seat entertainment among others.
The Previous Infiniti QX60 has been known to be rated as a safe vehicle. It earned good ratings from various safety officials. On government safety tests the Previous QX60 has an overall rating of five-star while on IIIHS’s safety tests it scored mostly “Good” ratings. What about the upcoming QX60? We don’t know yet but we do expect the 2020 Infiniti QX60 should at least be as safe as the Previous Infiniti QX60.
2020 Infiniti QX60 Release Date and Price
Until now, Infiniti has not yet told us when the upcoming 2020 QX60 will enter the market. While we don’t know the official release date yet, we can expect it to be released somewhere in 2019, most likely in the second half of the year. Release in early 2020 is also possible but it is unlikely to happen as it is meant to be a 2020 model.
As for the price, we can expect it to be in the same price range as the Previous Infiniti QX60. The price range of the basic model of the Previous QX60 is between $44,000 and $47,850. The price of the 2020 QX60 should be in the same range, probably on the higher end of it.
That’s what we know so far about the 2020 Infiniti QX60. It will continue most parts, including exterior, interior, engine, and features, of the previous model. That being said, we can expect some small changes here and there that hopefully make the upcoming family crossover better than its predecessor. It should be at least as capable, comfortable, and safe as the current model. What do you think?
The 2020 QX60 is meant to be a 2020 model. There is a time gap between now and 2020, which means changes are possible. What we present here as it is our expectation of the upcoming QX60 based on the previous model and the available information regarding the upcoming model. Also, the images we use are mere illustrations and not the real images of the 2020 QX60.
