These are the changes the automaker has made across the range.
Infiniti has rejigged its entire lineup for 2023, adding a healthy dose of features to the range and offering Infiniti Premium Care, a three-year complimentary maintenance program. That's impressive enough, but the premium Nissan-owned brand has also enhanced value by introducing more standard equipment on its vehicles.
Take the QX55, for instance. The sleek crossover gains myriad driver assists for 2023, such as lane departure prevention, blind-spot assist, and ProPilot Assist with active cruise control and steering assist. Rear passengers now benefit from standard side impact airbags, and leather upholstery is now standard. The driver enjoys a four-way power lumbar function.
Additionally, vehicles equipped in Essential spec (and above) receive adaptive cube LED headlights with auto leveling and traffic sign recognition. The range-topping Sensory adds a power lumbar feature for the front passenger, while the rear outboard seats are heated. Pricing ranges from $49,150 - $57,800.
Its brother, the more conventional QX50, hasn't been forgotten. A new Sport trim level has been introduced for 2023 and includes a model-specific front fascia and gloss black exterior trim. Dark-painted 20-inch wheels finish off the look. Inside, a 12-speaker Bose sound system and Semi-aniline leather seats provide a classy feel.
The rest of the QX50 family benefits from changes too. All models receive remote engine start, heated outside mirrors, wireless smartphone charging, and a rear door alert. The Pure and Luxe trim levels receive a new 19-inch wheel design, while the latter receives a motion-activated tailgate.
Additionally, those who spring for the Luxe can specify the aforementioned 12-speaker Bose system. There's a new paint color (Radiant White) and two new interior colors (Pebble Gray and Monaco Red). Pricing for the compact SUV is yet to be announced, but expect an increase in keeping with the QX55.
As the company's sole sedan offering, the Q50 has plenty weighing on its slender shoulders. We've already covered the 2023 updates in a separate article, but here's the summary. Changes have been kept to a minimum and include the option of Saddle Brown upholstery on the Luxe model. The Sensory is now also available with a radiant grille emblem.
Soon, the Q50 will be the only non-SUV model in the Infiniti range. As reported, the Q60 Coupe is being discontinued after the 2022 model year. If you want to stash one before it's too late, don't worry - Infiniti is confident that dealers will have stock well into next year.
"In the meantime, we will focus on the most popular luxury automotive segments such as crossovers and SUVs, as well as our first EV that we recently announced will be built in a manufacturing plant here in the US," Infiniti told CarBuzz.
Moving onto Infiniti's larger products, we have the QX60. Again, we've covered the main updates here but, as a reminder, the luxury SUV gains wireless smartphone charging, a frameless rearview mirror, and updated front bumper trim. Pricing has also increased, with the base Pure derivative weighing in at $49,200. The Luxe commands a bit more, at $55,250, while the top-of-the-line Sensory is $58,600. All grades are available in all-wheel drive, which commands an additional $2,000.
Now, onto the oldest and biggest Infiniti of them all - the QX80 SUV. It's been around for quite some time and yet, manages to impress thanks to its impressive off-roading capabilities, old-school V8, and plush ride quality. To keep it fresh, the automaker has added built-in Alexa compatibility, along with haptic feedback for the lane departure system, via the steering wheel.
But it won't be long before this elderly SUV is shuffled off its mortal coil, with Infiniti noting an all-new model will debut in the coming years.
