The 2022 Infiniti QX55 is an all-new five-passenger crossover. It marks the first new product — in an overhaul of the Infiniti brand — that promises both updates to existing models and the introduction of wholly new models to the lineup. Pricing will start at $46,500.
If you are looking for a more accurate idea of pricing, you can build and price a QX55 on Infiniti’s official web site.
The QX55 will be available in a range of three trims (Luxe, Essential, and Sensory) with standard all-wheel drive. Power will come from a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 (268 hp/280 lb-ft of torque) paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The base “Luxe” includes 20-inch wheels, wireless Apple CarPlay, a power-sliding tinted glass moonroof, heated front seats, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity for up to seven devices. There’s a dual-screen infotainment system with an 8-inch upper and 7-inch lower screen and a generous suite of standard safety features. These include forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot warning.
The “Essential” adds navigation, Around View monitor with moving object detection, a heated steering wheel, and a premium 16-speaker Bose audio system for $51,600. It also adds the ProAssist package, which features cube design LED headlights, adaptive front lighting, intelligent cruise control, distance control assist, and both blind spot and lane departure prevention.
An available ProActive package further increases safety features on the Essential. It adds traffic sign recognition, direct adaptive steering, head-up display, and ProPilot assist with steering assist and intelligent cruise control with full speed range, stop, and hold.
Sitting at the top of the 2022 Infiniti QX55 lineup is the “Sensory” priced at $57,050. It ups the luxury angle with semi-aniline leather seats, natural open-pore wood trims, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a motion-activated liftgate. There’s also standard ambient interior lighting and an available Monaco Red and Graphite interior exclusive to the Sensory trim.
The 2022 Infiniti QX55 is set to arrive in dealerships this April with online reservations now open.
Infiniti has found itself rather invisible on new vehicle shopper’s radars recently, so it is now picking up the pace on fresh new product introductions. Does the answer to Infiniti’s stagnation to be found in another gasoline-burning two-row crossover? With styling recalling Infiniti’s ground-breaking FX models (2003 – 2012), maybe so. But fans of that hotrod crossover may be let down by a 268-hp 4-cylinder with a CVT.
