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)
Infiniti's available 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, the 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, 100% of the power is channeled to the rear wheels for more responsive road performance.

Exquisite Balance. Exceptional Control.
Inspired by high-performance sports cars, the QX50 Front Midship (FM) platform centers the vehicle's weight to help deliver quick steering response and precise balance through curves. Additionally, the turning radius [*] and independent suspension help intensify the connection between driver and road.
