Infiniti today announced pricing for the 2016 Infiniti QX60, which has received a major freshening for the new model year – including revised exterior styling, a refined interior, improved dynamic performance and an enhanced list of available safety, security and driving aids technologies.
Infiniti’s second-best selling vehicle in the United States, the QX60 is again available in four models – QX60, QX60 AWD, QX60 Hybrid and QX60 Hybrid AWD.
The starting price for the 2016 QX60 (FWD) is $42,600, an increase of just $200 from the 2015 model despite the long list of revisions. The popular Premium Plus option package, which includes Infiniti Navigation with Infiniti Connection and Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, is $2,900, a decrease of $100 from last year.

“The new Infiniti QX60 offers a long list of new features,” said Randy Parker, vice president, Infiniti Americas. “Content and option packaging have been carefully crafted for the new model year to provide more value and equipment advantages versus our luxury crossover competition.”
The exterior of the new 2016 QX60 fully embodies Infiniti’s new design language, with a host of new exterior cues including signature grille, headlamps, turn signals and new 18-inch and 20-inch wheel designs. Two new exterior colors are added for 2016: Jade Green and Hagane Blue.
On the inside, the 2016 QX60 adds new graphite weave interior accents, stitched upper dash and a new shift lever (shared with the new Q60 coupe).
Improved driving dynamics are provided by a revised steering system, new tires and enhanced chassis tuning. As in previous years, the 2016 QX60 features a standard 3.5-liter DOHC V6 rated at 265 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 248 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm, along with a fuel-efficient Continuously Variable Transmission.
The QX60 Hybrid’s advanced drivetrain features a supercharged 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder and an electric motor powered by a compact Lithium-ion battery pack. It is rated at 250 net system horsepower. Both the standard and hybrid models are offered in front-wheel drive and with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive.
On the technology front, the new Deluxe Technology Package adds Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection and Predictive Forward Collision Warning. The previous Deluxe Touring Package and Technology Package have been combined to form the Deluxe Technology Package.
“The Infiniti QX60 continues to stand out in the luxury crossover segment, excelling in the areas that luxury crossover buyers desire most – interior flexibility and roominess, safety, and advanced hospitality features,” added Parker. “It again offers real 3-row utility, plus all the premium features, performance and innovations that Infiniti has become known for worldwide.”
Along with the new Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection and Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW), the 2016 QX60’s available technologies include Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system; Infiniti Connection telematics system and Infiniti Personal Assistant; Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD); Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP); Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) system; Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range); Distance Control Assist (DCA); Active Trace Control; Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts; and a Bose Cabin Surround 15-speaker sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding.
