Infiniti QX60 Facelift Spy-02

We’re familiar with the Infiniti QX50 (facelifted this year, previously known as the EX), QX70 (the ex-FX) and giant QX80, but there’s another member of the family that fills in the blanks. The Infiniti QX60, previously known as the JX, is based on the Nissan Pathfinder and has three rows of seats, unlike the five-seater QX50 and QX70.

Seen here is the 2016 Infiniti QX60, caught testing for the first time in Detroit. The long body SUV with the MPV-like shape is set to receive refreshed styling to better distinguish it from the mass market-badged Pathfinder. A new grille and headlamps take inspiration from newer SUVs like the QX50 and QX80, and there are new wheels. There should be a lightly revised interior too, to bring the QX60 up to date.

Many mechanical improvements have already been made to the QX60 for 2015, including revised calibration for the CVT to improve performance and refinement. The American-market car is powered by a 265 hp 3.5 litre V6, with AWD as an option. The refreshed QX60 is expected to go on sale early next year.
