Infiniti Refines 2017 QX70 With Luxed-Up Limited Edition [New Images]

This is the new Infiniti QX70 Limited, a more premium version of the company’s familiar crossover, revealed at the NY Auto Show.

It’s the second Limited model we see from Infiniti after the 2016 QX80 Limited and features a ‘unique’ front fascia, LED daytime running lights replacing the standard fog lights and a new grille design which will be on every 2017 QX70 soon.

“The QX70 Limited offers a range of premium exterior and interior treatments, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the dramatically styled crossover,” said Randy Parker, vice president, Infiniti Americas. “The QX70 has always been a popular model in the greater New York area so it’s fitting that visitors to the New York International Auto Show will be the very first to see this beautiful new QX70 Limited model.”

Other exterior changes include the body-coloured side air-vents, the dark-finished mirror housings, a stainless steel rear bumper protector and the dark rear lights. An exclusive set of 21in wheels with 265/45 tires complete the differences.

Inside there is now a new Graphite and Stone high-contrast leather treatment, a dark headliner, special open-pore wood trim with aluminum flake trim on the console and aluminium pedals.

A 325hp 3.7-litre V6 petrol mated to a seven-speed automatic is still the only powertrain of choice, with the 2017 QX70 offering a series of safety systems like Around View Monitor system with Moving Objection Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention.

    Long in the tooth.

  • What’s New? Not Much

    The interior is incredibility dated. I mean rock’n a decade ago, or so.

  • WTF

    That interior looks so dated

    • Jay

      Well its not an entirely new model just a limited edition of the current on.. No need to re-do the inside and out just yet.

  • Jay

    Finally Those clear taillights are gonna be available.. Not a big fan of those rims though.. And removing the fogs in favor of DRL’s seems a bit lazy..

  • xDRAN0x

    This model is end of life, dealership told me they’ll remove this from their lineup soon and bump the size of the QX50 (and a refresh hopefully!)

    • Carmaker1

      Based on what? The next generation QX50 is out in 2017 or at latest early 2018.

      The QX70 will be redesigned by late 2018.

    I’ve always loved the aesthetics of the FX, but it’s getting old.

    • Me too, I just wish the tech inside was updated.
