If we can rely on the latest reports, Nissan’s luxury division is bringing back a familiar nameplate, this time as the 2019 Infiniti QX70. The mid-size crossover has been discontinued a couple of years ago. However, it looks like the company is working on a new model and this nameplate seems to suit perfectly. As you probably know, the QX60 came as a replacement for this crossover and there is definitely a good reason for that. The new model is far more practical, due to its more wagon-like body style, which provides much more space on the inside.
However, SUVs are not just practical vehicles anymore. These days, you can find a nice number of stylish, coupe-like crossovers. Therefore, Nissan feels that the Infiniti QX70 2019 would have a lot of potentials with such design approach. Still, keep in mind that all reports about the revival are unofficial, so take following info with a dose of a reserve.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Design
You can call it redesign or not, but 2019Infiniti QX70 will definitely
Of course, let’s start with the most basic design characteristics. There is no doubt that the new model will be a mid-size crossover. Therefore, 2019 Infiniti QX70 specs will be similar to the QX60 in many aspects. Still, count on a fairly different shape. This model will be less practical and put more focus on style. Therefore, it will probably be a little bit shorter, though wheelbase could remain the same. Front ends of two models should look quite familiar, though we must say that Infiniti plans to introduce a new design language soon. The new face will characterize both the 2019Infiniti QX70 and refreshed QX60, most likely. However, we still can’t say in which way the new styling philosophy will go. We presume that the company will keep its non-angular overall approach that is a bit of exclusivity these days when angular approaches dominate.
From the side, the new crossover will come in an attractive, coupe-like manner, with sloping roof layout. Count on a lower height compared to the QX60 as well. This will affect the rear end, which will probably come with sleeker layout and more style.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Interior
Adding on one side usually means subtraction on the other. The 2019 Infiniti QX70 interior won’t be an exception. Of course, we are talking about practicality, which will definitely suffer under new body style. First of all, this means that the new model will almost definitely come with two rows of seating, while the cargo area will be quite limited due to the new shape.
Still, this isn’t a thing that we should worry about. With such design, Nissan aims for drivers that don’t take too much care about the practicality and interior space. On the other side, lots of luxury and comforts are definitely something that the company should put the focus on. In practice, this would mean a lot of work on the new dashboard design, which should come with higher-quality materials, more style and loads of standard equipment.
Among standard equipment, tech features come first to our minds. This refers to segments like driver aids, safety systems, entertainment features etc. This will be one of the most expensive models in the company’s lineup, so we are pretty sure that Nissan is willing to offer pretty much everything it has when it comes to new technologies.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Engine
Another aspect that seems intriguing at this point is powertrain. Currently, the company offers a powerful 3.7-literV6, which is good for about 295 horsepower in its base version. Seems like a fine amount of power, even for today’s standards. However, the engine will probably undergo some modification to gain more power. Some reports suggest a max output between 330 and 350 horsepower.
Is there a chance to see a hi-performance version?
Besides this one, we count on an engine that will power the potential hi-performance version, which will come from the famous Nismo department. For this occasion, a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo that is planned for the newest sports cars seems like a perfect match. Expect a max output of around 400 horsepower, which should provide amazing performances.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Release Date and Price
As we already mentioned, this model is currently just a rumor. We are still waiting to hear something from the officials. Despite this fact, many unofficial reports suggest its arrival already in the next year. There is also some rough estimation of the 2019Infiniti QX70 price, which suggests something like 50.000 dollars for the base model.
