Following a refresh of the 2016 model that added resculpted front and rear ends, new headlights and an upgraded suspension, changes for 2017 are not extensive. There's an enlarged multimedia screen and options that now include a hands-free liftgate and automatic high beams. But the most significant change is an upgraded V6 engine that produces more power (thanks to direct fuel injection) but maintains the same fuel efficiency as before.
The 3.5-liter V6 (295 horsepower, 270 pound-feet of torque) comes paired with a smooth-operating automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a choice of front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. The EPA rates the front-wheel-drive version of the QX60 at 22 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway). A hybrid model is also available for those who want to maximize mpg.
Built on the same platform as the Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60 offers more safety tech and driver assistance features than its stablemate, as well as interior and exterior styling that distinguishes it as a more elegant vehicle.
Infiniti cars typically balance premium features and materials with sporty performance. On the road, however, the QX60 clearly leans more comfort than sport. The ride is stable and controlled, but there’s considerable body roll when trying to hustle it through a corner, for example. The steering, too, feels overly heavy and resistant to give it any real performance pretensions. But as a solid family hauler, running errands or making road trips, the QX60 excels.
Inside, the QX60 surrounds passengers with upscale touches such as leather seats and wood accents, but a hard-plastic dashboard tends to detract from the overall luxury feel. Still, the interior offers many of the comfort and convenience features buyers expect in this class. The front seats offer generous head- and legroom, and those in the second row will find spacious accommodations as well (even if they may need to duck their heads when getting in and out). Third-row access is easier than in most seven-passenger SUVs thanks to a cleverly designed sliding and folding second-row.
The QX60 only comes in one well-equipped trim level, but it comes with heated leather seats, multizone climate control, a rearview camera, a power liftgate, Bluetooth and USB capability. A variety of optional packages allow buyers to pile on luxury, driver assistance and technology features. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2017 Infiniti QX60 that best meets your needs.
