Here's what's new for the 2020 Infiniti QX50 lineup.
The Infiniti QX50was redesigned for the 2019 model year, and now the 2020 model has arrived with some notable updates including two new range-topping trims and upgraded tech. As standard, the 2020 Infiniti QX50 is equipped with an upgraded infotainment system with Infiniti InTouch dual HD displays featuring upper 8-inch and lower 7-inch touch screens. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard on all QX50 trim levels.
For the 2020 model year, Infiniti has also introduced two new range-topping trims to the QX50 lineup, which are both generously equipped. Starting at $48,900, the new QX50 Sensory model adds 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, "Ice Cube" LED headlights, an adaptive front lighting system, a Bose Performance Series audio system, leather-appointed seats, and a heated steering wheel. Additional driver assists include intelligent cruise control, blind-spot intervention, and lane departure intervention.
Topping the 2020 QX50 range is the new premium Autograph model, which starts at $53,850. For the higher cost, the Autograph model comes loaded with ProPILOT Assist technology, a head-up display, direct active steering, and tri-zone climate control. Additional tech includes traffic sign recognition, and a motion-activated liftgate, while the luxurious interior features climate-controlled seats and semi-aniline leather-appointed seating.
Regardless of the trim, the QX50 is powered by a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo, the world's first production variable compression ratio engine. Infiniti claims it's one of the most advanced combustion engines ever, which develops 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a continuously variable transmission. Each trim is offered with a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Starting at $37,250, the entry-level Pure model includes 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and LED headlamps and LED daytime running lights as standard, along with forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, predictive forward collision warning, high beam assist, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, rear automatic braking, and rear parking sensors.
The $40,250-QX50 Luxe model adds the power panoramic moonroof, LED fog lamps, roof rails, auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote engine start, and a HomeLink universal transceiver. Starting at $44,100, the Essential trim includes Infiniti's InTouch with Navigation, an around view monitor with moving object detection, heated mirrors and front seats, and front parking sensors. The 2020 Infiniti QX50 is slated to arrive in dealers this fall.
