Accelerated Emotion

The QX50 is envisioned to stir confidence and respond with a liveliness that will make driving simply fun. With a 325-hp 3.7 liter V6 with 267 lb-ft of torque, you'll notice an unmistakable hint of its potential in the dual-polished exhaust tips.

Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD)

Inspired Confidence

Infiniti's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) provides power where and when you need it, instantly adapting to changing conditions. By constantly monitoring wheel-spin, throttle position and vehicle speed, this system automatically diverts up to 50% of the available power to the front wheels, enhancing traction and control in adverse conditions. When all-wheel drive is not needed, the system sends 100% of the power to the rear wheels for more responsive road performance.
