Infiniti has just priced its latest crossover. The coupe-like roofline of the QX55 will be accompanied by a sticker price starting just under $52,000 when it arrives at dealers this April, expanding the brand’s list of offerings by one.
The QX55 will offer dramatic crossover coupe styling with a sharply raked roofline, and a large and aggressive grille and hood in front. The shape is an homage, Infiniti says, to the FX, one of the original style-over-rugged crossovers that the automaker sold from 2003 through 2017.
Three trim levels of QX55 will be offered – Luxe, Essential ProAssist, and Sensory – all with a 268 hp variable-compression engine paired to a continuously variable transmission. They boast all-wheel drive, 20-inch alloys, wireless Apple CarPlay, and, Infiniti says, class-leading cargo space among crossover coupe competitors.
The Luxe trim offers a power moonroof, leatherette seats (heated up front), dark aluminum trim, active noise cancelling, and driver assistance features including forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear automatic braking, forward collision warning, lane-departure and blind-spot warnings, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The Essential trim adds navigation as well as leather seats and Bose 16-speaker audio. It has an around-view monitor with moving object detection and ProAssist includes adaptive front LED lights, adaptive cruise, distance control, blind-spot intervention, and lane-departure prevention.
The Sensory trim adds semi-aniline leather seats with open-pore maple wood trim. It has new interior ambient lighting, a motion-activated tailgate, and adds Direct Adaptive Steering, a head-up display, and ProPilot Assist hands-on steering and adaptive cruise assist.
