Infiniti Announces Updates For 2019, Drops The Q70 Hybrid

In one fell swoop, Infiniti has unveiled the 2019 QX30, QX60 and Q70.

Starting with the company’s flagship sedan, the 2019 Q70 is currently available and pricing starts at $50,300. While the price remains unchanged, the entry-level Q70 3.7 Luxe now comes with additional standard equipment including a heated leather steering wheel and heated / ventilated front seats. Other new additions include a 10-speaker Bose audio system, GPS navigation and an Around View Monitor with moving object detection.

Since the Q70 Hybrid has been dropped for 2019, there are only two engine choices. Base models have a 3.7-liter V6 that produces 330 hp (246 kW / 334 PS) and 270 lb-ft (365 Nm) of torque. Customers can also order a 5.6-liter V8 with 420 hp (313 kW / 425 PS) and 417 lb-ft (564 Nm) of torque. Rear wheel drive continues to be standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.

Moving on, the 2019 QX60 has a revised trim structure which now consists of four models called the Pure, Pure AWD, Luxe and Luxe AWD. Besides the updated trims, the crossover now comes standard with an assortment of driver assistance systems including Blind Spot Warning, Predictive Forward Collision Warning and Forward Emergency Braking with pedestrian detection.

Three new exterior colors – Deep Bordeaux, Imperial Black and Mocha Almond – have been added to the lineup and there are a couple of new packages as well. The Limited package adds exclusive semi-aniline leather seats, dark silver wood trim, dark chrome exterior accents and 20-inch wheels with a dark finish. Likewise, the ProASSIST Package includes Lane Departure Prevention, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Intervention and High Beam Assist.

The 2019 QX60 is now on sale and pricing starts at $45,800. The model is powered exclusively by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS) and 270 lb-ft (365 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a continuously variable transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

Lastly, the 2019 QX30 will go on sale this fall. Since the model was updated for the 2018.5 model year, the only change is a couple of new options for the QX30 Luxe. It can now be equipped with the Navigation Package as well as 19-inch wheels with summer tires.

Unsurprisingly, the crossover’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine carries over and continues to develop 208 hp (155 kW / 210 PS). It is mated to a seven-speed dual clutch transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.
