The Infiniti QX60 SUV is more expensive but is it worth the price hike?
A year ago, Infiniti totally redid its luxury midsize SUV, the QX60. Now, it has revealed how much the 2023 model costs. The 2023 Infiniti QX60 starts at $49,200 MSRP. As with all 2023 vehicles Infiniti makes, it'll also offer Infiniti Premium Care, which Infiniti debuted on the 2023 Q50. In essence, here's what it does.
Infiniti Premium Care offers 3-year scheduled maintenance on all oil changes, tire rotations, inspection, brake fluid changes, cabin air filter replacements, tire replacements, and car rental assistance. However, that last item is only on qualifying vehicles. In addition to that program, each QX60 comes with emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and high beam assist.
With that out of the way, let's circle back to the QX60. For 2023, the QX60 now adds a wireless charger as standard, as well as a frameless rearview mirror with a slightly revised lower bumper. The color of the lower bumper depends on your preferred trim level: Either gloss black on Luxe models or dark gray on Sensory and Autograph models.
This brings us nicely to trims. Infiniti will offer four this year, and each can be had with AWD if you'd like. In addition to the three listed above (which are in ascending order), the lineup starts off with the Pure trim. Having AWD with that bumps the price to $51,200. The Pure includes standard features like heated seats, leather first and second rows, a power liftgate, and a powered sunroof.
The QX60 Luxe will start at $55,250 or $57,250 with AWD. Buyers will get larger 20-inch wheels, silver metallic weave trim, a 360-degree camera suite with object detection, a 12.3-inch display, and ProPilot Assist. Infiniti's driver assist suite includes traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, steering assist, lane departure, and blind spot intervention.
Infiniti's Sensory trim level also includes this and starts at $58,600 or $60,600 with AWD. The Sensory trim also adds a leather-wrapped wheel, massaging front seats, open-pore wood trim, a motion-activated liftgate, and an upgraded Bose 17-speaker sound system. Changes are rounded off with the all-important heated second-row seats.
Finally, the range tops off with the Autograph trim level. $62,600 or $65,500 with AWD will get you in the driver's seat. Infiniti now upholsters the first and second rows in semi-aniline leather with quilting. We tried this on our QX80 loaner, and while the SUV failed to impress, the leather did.
The QX60 Autograph also adds contrasting stitching to those special seats and a black roof with black roof rails. This trim level will include a 10.8-inch head-up display, camera rearview mirror, second-row captain's chairs, and just about every option Infiniti offers for the vehicle.
