If you’re in the market for an SUV with the perfect combination of practicality, functionality, luxury, and class, then look no further than the 2022 Infiniti QX60. It’s a top-notch luxury SUV that does quite a few things right. The 2022 QX60 model has undergone a complete redesign which will surely endure the test of time.
We were lucky enough to drive one ourselves and wanted to give you an unbiased idea of what to expect. But the short answer is whether you’re looking for a great family-friendly SUV or one you can use to get away on your next business or family trip, you can’t go wrong with the 2022 Infiniti QX60 is an outstanding choice.
Luxury Through and Through
When you get inside an Infiniti QX60, you want to feel luxury in every stitch and fiber of the car. No matter what trim level you go with, when you drive a QX60 you get that feeling.
It all starts with the exterior. The 2022 QX60 looks great, but perhaps no single feature stands out more than the grille with its distinctive Infiniti logo. We drove a Grand Blue QX60, which gave the overall appearance of a unique and regal vehicle. But while the exterior of the QX60 looks excellent, it’s only more luxurious when you get inside.
A quick look around the cabin reveals a tri-zone automatic temperature control system, a sequential lighting illuminated entry system, an auto-dimming frameless rearview mirror, a panoramic power moonroof, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-appointed seating, heated front seats, USB ports throughout, and even a wireless charging system — and that’s just with the base model.
There are tons of luxury features throughout all the QX60 models, and you can see the difference when you first lay your eyes on this pristine vehicle, and you feel the difference as soon as you open the door.
Amazing Safety Features
Any time you get in the driver’s seat you want to know you’re in good hands if an accident does happen, and you want a vehicle that actively works to keep you out of an accident in the first place! The OX60 thrives in both those areas.
The 2022 Infiniti QX60 scores top marks in every crashworthiness and crash avoidance & mitigation in the IIHS safety tests, and when you look at all the features they offer, it’s not hard to see why.
Not only are there top-of-the-line airbags throughout the cabin and an automatic collision notification system in case you get into an accident, but with blind spot monitoring, a predictive forward collision warning system, front and rear automatic emergency braking, and a lane departure warning system, few vehicles do as much to keep you out of an accident in the first place.
The Thrill of the Drive
What’s the point of getting a great car if it’s not a joy to drive? That’s why every Infiniti QX60 comes with a 3.5L V6 direct-injection engine that pushes an impressive 295 horsepower at 6,400 rpm. It also pushes 270 ft-lb of torque, so it has no problem launching off the starting line either.
It’s a fast and powerful engine that creates a nimble QX60 despite the larger size. You should enjoy the experience while driving, and with the QX60, you will.
Cargo Space and Ground Clearance
What good is a fun SUV if it needs more space for your family, business and computer gear, and golf clubs? With the QX60, that isn’t a problem. Even if you had a passenger in every seat, you’d have 14.5 cubic feet of storage space, and we’re sure you could fit a few bags of clubs there.
Of course, if you don’t have a passenger in every seat you get a lot more cargo space. When you fold down the rear seats you unlock 75.4 cubic feet of storage space, which is enough space for you to transport all the golf bags for everyone in the office!
Moreover, while the 2022 QX60 isn’t precisely an off-road menace, you want it to have at least a little off-road ability with an AWD drivetrain. With 6.5″ of ground clearance it can do just that. Whether it’s rock or dirt roads around the resort or something a little more rugged, the QX60 can handle it all.
Packages and Options to Consider
The 2022 QX60 has four different trim levels to pick from, and all four levels come in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. We drove the LUXE AWD, which felt like the perfect combination of price and luxury.
It unlocks 20″ wheels, a digital around-view monitor, a blind spot intervention system, intelligent cruise control, and a front sonar system. We also opted for the Performance Audio Package, which gave us an upgraded Bose Performance Series speaker system with 17 different speakers throughout the vehicle.
This made the sound quality absolutely incredible, and to us, it’s well worth the extra investment. Other optional packages include a vision package which opens up an adaptive front lighting system, a 10.8″ head-up display, and a smart rearview mirror.
Finally, with higher trim levels you can opt for a tow package, which includes all the wiring and attachments necessary to tow up to 6,000 pounds! For a luxury SUV, that’s quite the haul, and it really opens up a whole new host of possibilities for you.
If you have the privilege of getting behind the wheel of a 2022 QX60 it won’t take you long to realize what we’re talking about. It’s luxury and class all wrapped up into one great vehicle and brand, and we’re sure you’ll love the experience.
Whether you’re out on a weekend getaway or driving the kids to soccer practice, nothing brings a touch of class and style quite like the QX60!
