After it updated the model in China, Infiniti unveiled a QX50 facelift for United States. The car was introduced at New York Auto Show and it features a range of small changes that make it more appealing.

New QX50 Exterior

The look was enhanced with the help of a new front bumper and lower front fascia, new LED Daytime Running Lights, new signature Infiniti-style double-arch front grille, new side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals, updated side sill styling, and new rear bumper and lower fascia.

New 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels are added as part of the Deluxe Touring Package. Seven exterior colors are offered for 2016: Malbec Black, Midnight Garnet, Graphite Shadow, Liquid Platinum, Black Obsidian, Moonlight White and new Hagane Blue.

Interior Design

Infiniti increased space inside the QX50. The Japanese press release says ”the wheelbase is now 3.2 inches longer (113.4 inches versus previous 110.2 inches) and overall length has increased 4.5 inches (186.8 inches versus previous 182.3 inches). The result is an 8.3 cubic feet increase in interior volume (115.4 cubic feet total volume versus the previous 107.1 cubic feet). Most of the increase in interior space can be felt in the 2nd row – rear legroom grows by 4.3 inches and rear knee room is boosted by 3.9 inches. In addition, ground clearance has been enhanced to 6.9 inches (+0.4 inches) for rear-wheel drive models and to 6.5 inches (+0.8 inches) for all-wheel drive models.”

On the inside, the passengers benefit from "double-wave" instrument panel, high-contrast gauges, hospitality lighting with a pin LED light mounted over the center console and Infiniti signature analog clock. The instrument panel also features a 7-inch color display with Infiniti controller for the trip computer and additional vehicle information.

The available Infiniti Hard Drive Navigation System includes a color touch-screen display, Lane Guidance and 3-D building graphics, NavTraffic with Real-Time Traffic Information, NavWeather with Real-Time Weather Information and 3-day forecast.

Seating is provided by an 8-way power driver's seat and a 4-way power passenger's seat. Heated front seats are now standard on both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive models. 

QX50 Powertrain

Nothing new under the bonnet, as every 2016 Infiniti QX50 comes with a 3.7-liter V6 engine rated at 325 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. Infiniti QX50 AWD models feature Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system.
