What Is It?
2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid
What's Special About It?
Remember, the front- or all-wheel-drive, full-size, seven-passenger Infiniti JX35 crossover is now the Infiniti QX60. And this is the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid that just debuted at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.
It's still the same full-size, seven-passenger crossover that we're used to, but now it has a supercharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder paired with a lithium-ion battery and an electric motor. To keep interior space up, Infiniti's packaged the motor under the third row, which allows the flat load floor to remain flat. Power has yet to be announced, but Infiniti claims "a delivery of power equivalent to the 3.5-liter V6 but with four-cylinder fuel economy." That V6 did 265 horsepower in the FX35. Fuel economy is also unannounced, but Infiniti is hoping for 26 mpg combined. Coincidentally, these are the exact same specs for the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, also released at the 2013 New York Auto Show.
Infiniti is expecting a base price some $3,000 above the as-yet-to-be-priced 2014 Infiniti QX60. Based off of the 2013 JX35, $45,000 is a safe assumption.
What Edmunds Says:
The 2014 Infiniti QX60 is the fanciest and most fuel-efficient seven-seat hybrid crossover available. Great news if that's your thing.
