The upcoming 2021 Infiniti QX55 is the company’s brand-new crossover. It looks gorgeous, and it features a coupe-like appearance. It is a homage to the first-gen FX models. Infiniti plans to release five new models in the next three years. The QX55 crossover is just a beginning. The new model is classified as a mid-size crossover coupe, and it looks impressive.
The company’s designers wanted to depart from the classic crossover styling like Audi did with A8. New QX55 comes with sporty stance, and it looks unique. The carmaker will add more safety equipment than before and generally, we can expect more tech. According to latest reports, this coupe-like crossover will ride on a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine.
2021 QX55 Sports a Coupe-Like Roofline
The forthcoming 2021 Infiniti QX55 is a mid-size crossover coupe. It is the company’s latest model that looks very modern, sporty, and attractive. In terms of appearance, QX55 slightly departs from the look of a regular crossover. The credit goes to a coupe-like roofline, which is the highlight of new model. Thanks to that, interior space is more generous, especially the headroom for the rear passengers.
The curvy upper line on the windows is another unique styling cue. It is a clear homage to the first-gen FX model. Front fascia departs from the company’s design language. It looks bolder and more luxurious. The rear end is elegant in many ways, and it looks incredibly modern. Just like most of the carmakers, Infiniti also opted for large lettering in the back of a vehicle.
Unfortunately, interior details are not available yet. The all-new 2021 Infiniti QX55 will surely offer a lot of luxury on the inside, like always before. The new crossover will borrow cues and features from the previous Infiniti’s models, such as QX60. Still, leather upholstery and front bucket seats will be optional on the starting trim level.QX55 slots between QX50 and QX60 models, logically.
We don’t expect more or less legroom, as a matter of fact. Thanks to the sloping roof, only the rear-seat headroom and cargo area will benefit from it. Infiniti will also offer new In Touch infotainment system with probably new and larger touchscreen.
VC-Turbo Engine Specs
One of the best things about the new 2021 Infiniti QX55 is the inclusion of VC-Turbo four-cylinder engine. It is a 2.0-liter turbocharged unit that comes with good fuel efficiency. This mill can generate 270 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, its fuel economy is rated at 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. QX55 crossover is a front-wheel-drive model, but all-wheel-drive system is optional.
Loading AWD setup will slightly drop the fuel economy figures. A CVT transmission is offered as standard. Interestingly, a hybrid variant is already a rumor. We can confirm that there will be no hybrid powertrain before 2022.
