Performance
Without Sacrifice

Experience the unprecedented thrill of the 390-hp 5.0-liter V8 or the exhilarating 325-hp 3.7-liter V6. The V8 offers Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) control to help the engine breathe freely for instant acceleration and enhanced efficiency. And both combine dual intake and exhaust for a sound that is uniquely Infiniti.

7-speed Automatic Transmission

Seven Dimensions
of Performance

More gears means you always have the optimum selection for quick and responsive acceleration while the high 7th gear allows lower-rpm cruising for greater fuel efficiency. Shift through all seven smoothly and seamlessly in automatic mode, or switch into manual mode with Downshift Rev Matching and use the available solid magnesium paddle shifters to take direct control.

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, 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.

Handling

Exquisite Balance. Exceptional Control.

Genuine performance is built on a solid foundation like the Sports car-inspired platform of the QX70. With the engine's weight toward the center and the wheels pushed to the corners, it's balanced for better handling. Available Continuous Damping Control (CDC®) will automatically tighten or soften the suspension when you're cornering or cruising, or you can manually set sport mode. And available Rear Active Steer will actively turn the rear wheels for sharper turn-in.

Purposeful Design

An Elevated Design Expression

From wide stance to declarative details, flowing hood to sculpted taillights, the QX70 is crafted for balance, aerodynamics and expression. The standard 18-inch wheels are coupled with low-profile performance tires for superior grip and steering response. And the standard side air vents put function above mere fashion, reducing front-end lift by 5%.
