Infiniti QX55 made its dramatic debut as the newest face in the automaker's compelling and capable cast

 


                The QX55 takes the award-winning and innovative Variable Compression Turbo powertrain and launches into an exclusive design direction for luxury SUV buyers. 

                "We set the stage nearly 20 years ago with the FX, and the all-new Infiniti QX55 brings us back, close to the soul of our brand - and it propels us forward," said Infiniti Chairman Peyman Kargar. "The inspired QX55 is an important step in our journey."

                The new Infiniti QX55 pairs unapologetic style with inspired dynamics, a spacious, decadent cabin, and connectivity for owners. Infiniti's new star performer will be offered to customers in the U.S., Canada, the Middle East, Russia and select markets in Asia.


Daring design, provocative shape



                The Infiniti QX55's story begins with design. The all-new QX55 SUV connects the brand to its heritage with a modern interpretation of the stunning silhouette created by the Infiniti FX, first on sale in 2003. The QX55 is the latest in a line of Infiniti vehicles that have pushed the envelope of design among Japanese luxury automakers. Its roofline recalls a familiar shape, but its origami-inspired mesh grille design looks ahead to the future.

                At the front, the Infiniti QX55's double-arch grille is prominent and unique and announces the vehicle's arrival. Its depth of geometric inner mesh was inspired by the folds of Japanese origami - where a 2D material is folded to create depth - and asserts the vehicle's confident and provocative look. The pronounced grille is flanked by Infiniti's signature human-eye headlights that are as intense as they are alluring. The unique shape mimics an eyebrow, and standard LED headlights on the QX55 project greater detail with its brilliant light, compared to halogen or xenon headlights.


                The fog lights are surrounded by angular gloss black accents, deeply set into the front fascia that bracket the lower half of the QX55's face. Above, a clamshell hood moves the shunt lines to the front fenders, where they are incorporated into the bodysides in an elegant character line that stretches to the rear haunches. The hood visually integrates with the A-pillar thanks to a clever four-link hinge, which gives the QX55 dynamic proportions in profile.


                The Infiniti QX55's visual weight is situated low on the vehicle for an assertive and planted look. That appearance is partly due to its standard 20-inch wheels on all models and deeply sculpted body sides that visually connect to the road underneath. The QX55's D-pillars make a statement in relative silence: The fast angle connecting the daring roofline to the pronounced rear fenders is stylish but understated - the chrome framing the QX55's greenhouse pinches toward the SUV's expressive rear taillight signature.


                "Digital piano key" taillights - which also adorn the recently unveiled, stunning QX60 Monograph design study - have visual depth thanks to an intricate inner housing that incorporates 45 individual LEDs in each taillight. The piano key taillights are distinctive from every angle and frame a graceful light signature that's unique and unforgettable in the dark.


                The rear of the QX55 embraces a minimalist approach. The liftgate is clean, with an "Infiniti" badge spanning the center of the gate that's free from a large, deep, and intrusive stamping for license plates. The Infiniti badge is dual-purpose: Not only is it a beacon for the road ahead, but also it houses the power liftgate release, which is standard on all QX55 models. QX55 SENSORY models get an added motion-activated liftgate, convenient when hands are full, activated by waving a foot underneath the rear bumper.


                The lower rear fascia is body-colored, and dual exhaust diffusers draw more eyes and accentuate the athletic mission of the QX55.

Carefully crafted, calm and inspired interior


                Complimenting a bold exterior was always going to be hard to do. The Infiniti QX55 rewards drivers and their passengers with a captivating and connected driver-centric interior.


                The wide stage afforded by a low dash gives the driver and passengers excellent outward vision, and the standard power sliding tinted glass moonroof bathes the decadent, tailored interior in natural light. Owners can select an interior color combination that complements their style with up to three available color combinations: Graphite, Stone/Graphite, and the stunning Monaco Red/Graphite. Leatherette interior upholstery is standard in the QX55 LUXE, and all grades are equipped with heated, ergonomically designed, "zero gravity" front seats that help reduce physical fatigue by minimizing pressure on the back and hips of occupants. Assembled with precise stitching, the leatherette, leather, or premium semi-aniline leather appointments give a tailored appearance to the interior with a crafted feel and add to the luxurious cabin, regardless of grade.


                On Infiniti QX55 LUXE and ESSENTIAL grades, dark brushed aluminum trim fans out along the instrument panel and doors, which provides a richly textured surface for driver and passenger. On QX55 SENSORY grades, rich black Natural Maple open-pore wood trim flows through the cabin with finely grained, natural tones that, when paired with the Monaco Red/Graphite semi-aniline leather-appointed seats, seamlessly marry expressive and organic themes.


                The QX55 also minimizes outside distraction with laminated front side glass and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), while Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) provides an engaging note for the driver. With ANC, three microphones inside the cabin detect unwanted frequencies and neutralize those with phase-shifting noises transmitted through speakers within the car. Combined with a low vibration body and advanced construction techniques, the QX55 never speaks out of turn.


                Underneath the Infiniti QX55's provocative shape, its cabin-forward layout maximizes interior room for the driver and up to four passengers. The QX55 carries up to 26.9 cubic feet of cargo behind the second row, which is more than similarly styled coupe offerings from rivals such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The QX55 also boasts up to 38.7 inches of rear-seat legroom - tops among similar competitors - and its sliding second-row seat that travels nearly six inches fore and aft maximizes cargo or passenger space, depending on need. These elements combine to provide an interior that can be almost instantly configured to support owners' busy lifestyles.

Tech to engage and inform


                Every Infiniti QX55 is equipped with dual, high-resolution touch screens for infotainment and vehicle controls, and the QX55 is the first Infiniti vehicle to offer the convenience of wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity to stay informed and entertained while on the road. Android Auto users aren't left out either; the infotainment system can connect directly to compatible smartphones to deliver music and information through an easily accessible USB port. The QX55 cabin features four USB ports (one Type-C and three Type-A ports) to provide convenient charging options.

                Up to 16 speakers are available in the QX55 thanks to Bose™ Performance Series audio, which replicates sharp, high frequencies and low, resonant bass notes - and nearly every note in between - via custom-engineered tweeters, woofers, and other speakers placed inside the cabin. Bose's Advanced Staging Technology produces a wide sound stage inside the QX55 and faithfully replicates notes clearly for optimum sound quality. Bose's Centerpoint 2 technology automatically converts two-channel stereo sound into a virtual surround sound listening experience via advanced digital signal processing. The result? A personal concert experience wherever the QX55 travels. The Bose™ Performance Series sound system is standard on QX55 ESSENTIAL and SENSORY grades.

                For the driver, Infiniti's advanced assistance systems can support and inform when needed. The QX55 offers Infiniti's advanced ProPILOT Assist driver-assistance system to help steer, brake, center the vehicle in its lane, and accelerate in certain conditions to help reduce driver fatigue and enhance comfort. ProPILOT Assist combines Intelligent Cruise Control with Full-Speed Range and Hold with Steering Assist to deliver a more comfortable ride in stop-and-go traffic or long-distance highway drives. Unlike similar systems from competitors, no subscription fee is required to keep the system active.

Dynamic powertrain, confident handling


                The groundbreaking and world's first mass-production variable-compression 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine powers the QX55 and produces a competitive 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque thanks to its innovative design. The VC-Turbo engine consistently varies its compression ratio between 14:1 and 8:1 to deliver high-efficiency driving or confident power low in the rev range, depending on need. The key is a patented multi-link system that can imperceptibly raise or lower the pistons' stroke during operation to suit nearly any driving situation. A turbocharger produces better fuel economy and better response compared to a naturally aspirated engine.

                Paired to the VC-Turbo engine is a seamless Continuously Variable Transmission that features "shift-by-wire" technology, eschewing the requirement for a mechanical transmission linkage and ensuring driver inputs are transferred almost instantaneously when shifting in manual mode. In conjunction with paddle shifters and Infiniti's Drive Mode Selector, the driver is empowered with multiple drive modes to change the driveline's character, including shift points, steering force, and engine mapping. Standard, ECO, Sport, and Personal modes offer control and personalization depending on circumstances.

                The engine and transmission shift power to all four wheels via Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system, standard on all QX55 models in the U.S. and Canada. The Intelligent AWD system provides peace of mind for all-weather driving and maximum traction when the road gets interesting. At takeoff, the system doles power to the front and rear axles in a 50:50 split for maximum performance. If no slip is detected, the system can send up to 100% of available power to the front wheels only for maximum efficiency. If a slip is detected, the Intelligent AWD system can deliver up to 50% of the engine's available power to the rear wheels for better traction. What's more, Active Brake Limited Slip systems can brake individual wheels for better grip side-to-side when needed.


                The Infiniti QX55 filters out road imperfections with a four-wheel independent suspension that uses MacPherson struts up front and a rear multi-link setup. Infiniti's Body Motion Control offers precise handling during high-speed cornering to instill confidence in the driver but quells uneven road surfaces during long journeys to comfort passengers.


                For customers in the U.S. and Canada, the QX55 is equipped with Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system as standard on all grades, wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility, dual touch screens for infotainment and vehicle controls, sliding second-row seats, and a larger cargo area than other similarly styled, premium coupe SUVs. An available Head-Up Display and Infiniti's advanced ProPILOT Assist can support the QX55's driver with leading convenience features. The SUV is already at the leading edge of style - it's also the only premium SUV coupe available from a Japanese luxury automaker.

                The Infiniti QX55 is a provocative presence for not only drivers but also Infiniti: it's yet another statement-maker for the brand and complements the range of dramatic vehicles in the automaker's lineup. With the growing appeal of design-focused SUVs like the QX55, Infiniti is in the driver's seat with new luxury-car buyers.
