Infiniti has announced U.S. pricing for the 2015 QX70 (formerly FX) and 2015 QX50 (formerly EX) SUVs, with the big news being that the former model is no longer available with the 5.0-liter V8 engine. The 2015 Infiniti QX70 is offered exclusively with a 325hp 3.7-liter V6 gasoline engine, in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive setups.

The 2015 model gains a new Sport Package which offers a sportier exterior and interior look thanks to unique dark finish exterior accents, 21-inch dark finish aluminum-alloy wheels, Adaptive Front lighting System (AFS) and climate-controlled front sport seats. Three other special equipment packages are also offered: Premium Package, Deluxe Touring Package and Technology Package.

The base rear-wheel drive 2015 Infiniti QX70 starts from $45,850, excluding a destination and handling fee of $995, while the all-wheel drive model starts from $47,300 (plus destination).

For 2015, the smaller Infiniti QX50 SUV adds Bluetooth Hands-free Phone as a standard feature on the base models and continues most of the $2,500 price reduction from the 2014 model year, although base models increase $150. The 2015 Infiniti QX50 is also offered exclusively with the 325hp 3.7-liter V6 engine mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.

There are four models available QX50, QX50 AWD, QX50 Journey and QX50 AWD Journey, with all-wheel drive models featuring Infiniti’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system and heated front seats. The QX50 is also offered with special equipment packages: Premium Package, Deluxe Touring Package and Technology Package.

Prices start from $35,000 for the base 2015 QX50 rear-wheel drive model, with the AWD model being priced from $36,400. QX50 Journey and QX50 AWD Journey are priced at $37,200 and $38,600, respectively. All prices exclude a $995 destination and handling fee.
