The new generation also uses a new architecture with a 23 percent stiffness improvement, and the SUV is 184.8 inches (4,693 millimeters) long with cargo space up to 37 cubic feet from 31.6 cubic feet in the predecessor. The crossover also arrives with Nissan’s new ProPilot assist – the same tech seen on the 2018 Rogue, allowing for semi-autonomous operation during single-lane highway driving.
Sprinting to 60 miles per hour in dealt with in just 6.3 seconds with all wheel drive, not that it matters, and top speed is listed at 143 mph (230 kmh). The auto will only be available with a CVT automatic gearbox. Infiniti hasn’t revealed homologation data for fuel economy and emissions, however.
The 2019 Infiniti QX50 will make its public debut next week during the annual Los Angeles Auto Show. Sales will begin shortly after. Look for a pricing announcement before then.
