Infiniti announced updates and pricing for its 2015 QX50 and QX70, with the latter only being offered now with a V-6 engine. That means the 2015 Infiniti QX70 will no longer be sold with the 390-hp 5.0-liter V-8, leaving the 325-hp 3.7-liter V-6 as the lone engine choice for the brand’s midsize SUV.
Pricing for the rear-drive 2015 QX70 is $46,845 (including $995 destination fee), and is unchanged from model-year 2014. The base price for the QX70 AWD also stays put at $48,295. Aside from dropping its optional V-8 engine, the only other news for the QX70 is the addition of a new Sport Package, which adds 21-inch dark-finish rims, dark exterior accents, an adaptive front lighting system, and heated and cooled front sport seats. The Premium Package continues on and adds navigation, aluminum roof rails, and the Around View camera system, while the Deluxe Touring Package includes 20-inch rims, aluminum pedals, quilted leather seats, and climate-controlled front seats. Finally, the Technology Package adds adaptive cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning.
Meanwhile, pricing for the 2015 Infiniti QX50 increases by $150 for the base model, with the rear-drive QX50 starting at $35,995 and the all-wheel drive QX50 priced at $37,395. The QX50 is powered by the same V-6 as the QX70 and Bluetooth phone connectivity is now standard. The optional Journey package ($2400 and $2200 for the rear- and all-wheel drive models, respectively) adds a moonroof, maple wood interior accents, power-adjustable steering wheel, and auto-dimming mirror. A Premium Package adds navigation, Around View camera, and Bluetooth streaming audio, while a Deluxe Touring Package adds HID headlights, 19-inch wheels, power-adjustable front passenger seats, and power-folding second-row seats. Finally, a Technology Package is similar to that of the QX70.
Both models are on sale now.
