2016 INFINITI QX60 vs. 2017 INFINITI QX60: What’s New at Kearny Mesa INFINITI

At Kearny Mesa INFINITI, we’re proud to feature the INFINITI QX60, which has been a great choice for years for drivers who want a classy, stylish, and comfortable luxury crossover for an affordable price. We’re proud to feature it among the terrific INFINITI cars for sale at our San Diego, CA INFINITI dealership, and we’d love to tell you a little bit about the INFINITI QX60 and what makes the 2017 model better than ever.


The INFINITI QX60 received a refresh for the 2016 model year that gave it more modern and striking styling, improved sound insulation and engine mounts, and an improved suspension for a sportier driving experience. Under the hood is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. A smooth-shifting and efficient continuously variable transmission comes standard and sends power to the front wheels, but Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available as an option. Standard features for you and your passengers’ safety include a rearview camera, front seat-mounted side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags, while options include advanced driver assistance technology like lane departure and forward collision warning. As for standard information and entertainment technology, you get Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a seven-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker audio system with satellite radio and a USB port. The versatile space in the INFINITI QX60 offers seating for up to seven passengers or a total cargo capacity of 76.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.


The 2017 INFINITI QX60 gets even better this year with some minor tweaks to an already compelling and up-to-date vehicle. This year, engine output has increased on the 3.5-liter V6 engine to 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, and the engine now utilizes direct injection technology to more efficiently deliver power to your vehicle. Transmission and drivetrain options remain the same this year. When you equip the 2017 INFINITI QX60 with the Driver Assistance package, you can benefit from automatic emergency braking, which is the feature that earned this year’s model a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

There’s plenty to keep you comfortable and entertained in the 2017 INFINITI Q60. Standard special features include dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth streaming audio and hands-free calling, and INFINITI InTouch with a dual-display screen. When you spring for the 2.0t Premium model, you also gain a Bose Performance audio system and a moonroof.
