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. The QX60 is also the first three-row crossover to be released by Infiniti. Design work was done through 2009, by Naoyuki Ohkoshi under Shiro Nakamura. In 2012 Nissan announced that its mid-size SUV Pathfinder will also have the same platform as the QX60 for the 2013 model year. 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 to do with its place in the product lineup, with larger numbers usually corresponding to more expensive vehicles. This is also the first Infiniti to be 100% built in America.
Drivetrain and Engine
The engine is a 3.5 liter V6, with an output of 265 hp (198 kW) and 248 pound-feet (336 N·m). The QX60 uses a continuously variable transmission. 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 cylinder engine with an electric motor and a compact lithium-ion battery pack. The new supercharged inline-four (QR25DER) is rated at 230 hp (170 kW) and 243 pound-feet (329 N·m), while the 15-kW electric motor kicks in 20 horsepower and 29 lb-ft. Claimed total system power stands at 250 hp (190 kW) and 243 pound-feet (329 N·m).
