The 2022 Infiniti QX60 has been redesigned into a slick and more inviting vehicle. QX60 was initially based on the Nissan Pathfinder, but has certainly grown into its own exciting marquee.

This three-row SUV has plenty of room for family and their luggage. The Saddle Brown interior color makes it look even roomier, wrapped in Moonbow Blue exterior.

QX60 is powered by a 3.5L V6 that is capable of putting 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque into the 9-speed automatic transmission. Infiniti is ready for travel. This full-size SUV consumes 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, and has a towing capacity up to 6,000 pounds with standard Trailer Hitch Control.

Intelligent key with remote engine start gets you going in no time. Hopping into a beautiful cabin, your eye focus immediately falls on the Infiniti 12.3-inch Dynamic Meter Display and a 10.8-inch Heads-Up Display (HUD).

Overhead is a power panoramic moonroof, topped by outside roof rails for even more storage.

Power folding, heated, auto dimming outside mirrors, motion-activated climate control system, and power tilt/telescoping steering column add to the efficiency and beauty of the interior.

Other quality items inside the cabin are leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel and quilted semi-aniline leather-appointed seats. All these beautiful, quality features work together to add to the comfort of the interior.

The Infiniti InTouch 12.3-inch Interactive Display offers navigation and real-time traffic info. MapCare keeps the map data up to date. Standard communication features include USB charging and data ports, Wireless Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The standard 9-speaker audio system is upgraded to the Bose Performance Series 17-speaker system on higher models.

InTouch also has a monthly subscription-based service, which can include Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Remote Engine Start/Stop, and Automatic Collision Notification.

Infiniti has not forgotten that comfort, style, and entertainment are important, but those mean nothing without passenger safety. Therefore, Infiniti has provided standard safety features like Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection, and more.

Admittedly, I found some communication features to be a little confusing, but it is still nice to know that Infiniti is not only comfortable, but gives one a peace of mind. Especially since Predictive Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Prevention, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert were so easily accessed.
