2019 Infiniti QX60 And QX80 Receive Fancy Limited Trims

Luxury

Nothing says fancy like dark wheels and contrast stitching.

Not content for Nissan to have all the glory with its Midnight and Platinum Reserve and Nismo and Star Wars special editions, or other luxury brands with their black and red and orange themes, Infiniti is getting in on the game with new LIMITED trims that step up their game visually and with greater luxury. Now, you might be thinking that other brands use Limited trims all the time, so what’s so special about these? Well, these are LIMITED, with ALL CAPS, so clearly they are fancier.

Infiniti will treat two of their less-than-fresh models, the QX60 and QX80, to this LIMITED trim and show them at the New York Auto Show this week. The QX60 is Infiniti’s top-selling crossover and pretty much tied with the Q50 sedan, and it’s no surprise considering its practicality, style and value, with a no-confusion one-engine line-up featuring a 295-hp 3.5-liter V6 with 270 lb-ft of torque. Although the platform is shared with the Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60 is visually distinct with greater luxury (though perhaps not distinct enough in other areas), and the LIMITED trim adds custom 20-inch wheels, and various darker dark chrome and paint accents around the exterior.

Inside, unique Stone-colored quilted leather wraps most surfaces with contrasting stitching and piping, plus dark silver wood accents dress up the dash and doors. The QX80 is a hulking beast of a vehicle that plays in the Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade segment, but it has always been ugly on the outside and beautiful on the inside. However, we gotta say that in this shade of gray in the press photos with the satin chrome exterior trim, those dark machine-finished 22-inch rims and recent styling updates, we no longer find it hideously repulsive.

Sadly, they seem to have completely mucked up the interior and the two-tone leather treatment and contrasting stitching and piping and matte silver open-pore Ash wood trim seem like a child’s attempt at making something look fancy. Infiniti is not wrong to go after those looking for greater refinement, luxury, and distinct styling packages that stand out from their own lineup and others in the segment, but c’mon, Infiniti, where's our damn Q60 Project Black S!?
