2017 INFINITI QX70 Limited Debuts at the New York International Auto Show
INFINITI has announced that the new 2017 INFINITIQX70 Limited, a specially equipped version of the iconic QX70 performance crossover, will make its world debut this week at the 2016 New York International Auto Show. Available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive configurations, it is scheduled to go on sale at INFINITI retailers nationwide beginning in summer 2016. The QX70 Limited is the second in the INFINITI lineup, joining the 2016 QX80 Limited.
“The QX70 Limited offers a range of premium exterior and interior treatments, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the dramatically styled crossover,” said Randy Parker, vice president, INFINITI Americas. “The QX70 has always been a popular model in the greater New York area so it’s fitting that visitors to the New York International Auto Show will be the very first to see this beautiful new QX70 Limited model.”
The Limited model’s exterior enhancements begin with a unique front fascia, LED daytime running lights replacing the standard QX70 fog lights and a new grille design (coming on all 2017 QX70 models). Other changes include body-color side air vents, dark-finish outside mirror housings, dark finish rear combination lamps and a stainless steel rear bumper protector. Capping off the exterior are a rear hatch-mounted “Limited” badge and unique 21x9.5-inch multi-spoke premium paint-finished aluminum-alloy wheels mounted with 265/45R21 V-rated all-season tires.
Inside, the QX70 Limited features a special high-contrast Graphite and Stone-colored interior treatment. Among the transformative interior elements are a dark-color headliner, special open pore wood trim with aluminum flake trim on the console, deep pillow quilting on the center console and aluminum-trimmed pedals.
The seats themselves include high-contrast leather appointments with Graphite outside sections and Stone inserts. The seats include deep pillow quilting and Stone color stitching and piping. The steering wheel and shifter boot also feature Stone color stitching. Climate-controlled (heating and cooling) front seats are standard with the QX70 Limited.
Like all INFINITI QX70s, the new QX70 Limited will be powered by a 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 with VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift). The engine is matched with a 7-speed automatic transmission featuring Adaptive Shift Control (ASC). Its array of available advanced technology systems will include an Around View® Monitor system with Moving Objection Detection (MOD), Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP).
Public days for the 2016 New York International Auto Show, held at Jacob Javits Center, run from Friday, March 25th through Sunday, April 3rd.
