Chronology
Predecessor Infiniti QX4

The Infiniti QX60 (formerly called the Infiniti JX from 2012 through 2013) is a seven-passenger mid-size luxury crossover SUV introduced by the Infiniti division of Japanese automaker Nissan in April 2012 in the United States as a 2013 model. A concept version debuted at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event, while the production model was unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show. It is underpinned by an elongated Nissan Murano platform.[1] The QX60 is also the first three-row midsized crossover to be released by Infiniti. In 2012 Nissan announced that its mid-size SUV Pathfinder will also have the same platform as the QX60 for the 2013 model year.[2] In keeping with Infiniti's new naming scheme for 2014, in which cars begin with Q and SUV's begin with QX, the JX was renamed "QX60." While the number previously denoted engine displacement (e.g., 35=3.5L engine), the new number, 60, is largely meaningless, although the higher numbers do correspond with larger and/or more expensive models.[citation needed]

Drivetrain and Engine[edit]

The engine is a 3.5 liter V6, with an output of 265 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. The QX60 uses a continuously variable transmission.[3] For the 2014 model year, a hybrid version was introduced. The hybrid is powered by a supercharged 2.5-liter twin-cam 16-valve four with an electric motor and a compact lithium-ion battery pack. The supercharged four is rated at 230 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque, while the 15-kW electric motor kicks in 20 horsepower and 29 lb-ft. Claimed total system power stands at 250 horsepower and 243 lb-ft of torque.
