Infiniti will use this year New York Auto Show to introduce a special edition of the QX70 model. Called Limited, the special edition will be available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive configurations and will go on sale in summer 2016. The QX70 Limited is the second in the Infiniti lineup, joining the 2016 QX80 Limited.

The exterior enhancements begin with a unique front fascia, LED daytime running lights replacing the standard QX70 fog lights and a new grille design (coming on all 2017 QX70 models). Other changes include body-color side air vents, dark-finish outside mirror housings, dark finish rear combination lamps and a stainless steel rear bumper protector. There is also a rear hatch-mounted "Limited" badge and unique 21-inch multi-spoke paint-finished aluminum-alloy wheels mounted with 265/45R21 V-rated all-season tires.

Inside, the QX70 Limited features contrasting Graphite and Stone-colored interior treatment. Among the transformative interior elements are a dark-color headliner, special open pore wood trim with aluminum flake trim on the console, deep pillow quilting on the center console and aluminum-trimmed pedals.

The seats themselves include high-contrast leather appointments with Graphite outside sections and Stone inserts. The seats include deep pillow quilting and Stone color stitching and piping. The steering wheel and shifter boot also feature Stone color stitching. Climate-controlled (heating and cooling) front seats are standard with the QX70 Limited.

Under the bonnet we find the 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 with VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift). The engine has a 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). Its array of available advanced technology systems will include an Around View Monitor system with Moving Objection Detection (MOD), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP).
