YOKOHAMA, Japan: Curated materials, remarkable craftsmanship, and now connectivity with the capability to further support drivers, the 2022 INFINITI QX50 arrives with wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility and ProPILOT Assist technology newly standard on all grades of the mid-size crossover.
In addition to Apple CarPlay and ProPILOT Assist, all grades of the 2022 QX50 now include convenience features such as a Type-C USB charge port for rear passengers, rear door-activated Intelligent Key entry, LED welcome lights on the rear door handles, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The 2022 QX50 is available in five well-equipped grades — PURE, LUXE, ESSENTIAL, SENSORY, and AUTOGRAPH — in front-wheel drive as standard2, or Intelligent All-WheelDrive. All 2022 QX50 models are powered by an award-winning and world’s first variable compression turbocharged (VCTurbo) engine that produces 268 horsepower while returning up to 26 mpg combined, based on the EPA cycle.
Exceptional comfort features such as auto-folding heated outside mirrors, 4-way driver power lumbar adjustment, and leather-appointed, perforated seats are standard beginning on QX50 LUXE models. An updated Appearance Package adds daring touches to QX50 LUXE models, including 20-inch wheels, black exterior accents, and more.
Additionally, Bose® Performance Series premium audio, climate-controlled front seats, a heated steering wheel, and more are newly standard on QX50 ESSENTIAL. The QX50 SENSORY adds semi-aniline leather-appointed perforated seats, motion-activated liftgate, heated second-row, outboard seats, 4-way passenger power lumbar adjustment, and more.
HUMAN ARTISTRY The 2022 QX50 elevates driving daily with a carefully considered, handcrafted interior showcasing curated materials with “wrap-and-sew” highlights and contrast-color stitching paired with piping. Up to five fit in comfort within the 2022 QX50 thanks to a sliding rear bench seat that maximizes available cargo or passenger space with the second row upright, or folds forward for up to 65.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the front seats. All QX50 crossovers coddle passengers with 8-way adjustable front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leatherwrapped steering wheel, and a dual touch screen INFINITI InTouch infotainment system (8-inch upper, 7-inch lower) with wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-based Android Auto.
A Wi-Fi hotspot can support up to seven devices with on-the-go information and entertainment, and INFINITI InTouch Services offer peace of mind with automatic collision notification and emergency call services. INFINITI designers realized the traditional Japanese concepts of “mitate” and “shitate” by combining refined materials and expert craftsmanship to enhance the natural characteristics of items throughout the cabin.
For 2022, supple semi-aniline leatherappointed seats are included on QX50 SENSORY grades, and QX50 LUXE and QX50 ESSENTIAL grades receive rich leatherappointed seating surfaces. Heated rear outboard seats and decadent Ultrasuede® interior trim accents are standard on QX50 SENSORY grades3, which are new to the grade for 2022. This year, a 16-speaker Bose Performance Series premium audio system is included from QX50 ESSENTIAL grade for crystal-clear audio inside the QX50’s spacious confines.
The 2022 QX50 AUTOGRAPH exemplifies outstanding modern Japanese luxury with trizone automatic climate control, quilted-stitch seat surfaces, enhanced interior ambient lighting, advanced climate control system, and natural open-pore maple wood accents. The interior of the QX50 is tastefully finished in one of three shades of leather- or leatheretteappointed seats: graphite, wheat, or white, with accompanying painted aluminum, textured aluminum, or natural open-pore maple wood trim accents.
ELEGANCE OUTSIDE The 2022 QX50 reaches deeply into INFINITI’s Japanese DNA with organic, artistic lines and strong, muscular proportions. INFINITI’s double-arch grille features prominently and gives the QX50 a distinctive and distinguished arrival wherever it goes.
The QX50’s “human-eye” headlights are simultaneously alluring and intense, and this year are enhanced with black accents on QX50 PURE, LUXE, and ESSENTIAL grades. Along the body sides, INFINITI’s signature crescent-shaped rear roof pillar visually extends the crossover’s roofline, arching elegantly toward a standard power rear liftgate.
An updated and available Appearance Package for QX50 LUXE includes tasteful accents such as 20-inch black-painted and machine-finished wheels, black outside mirror caps, body color rear diffuser, graphite headliner, black mesh grille, black fender accents, and a black liftgate finisher. A panoramic moonroof is included on most QX50 grades and visually enhances the interior space by flooding the cabin with warming natural light during the day or cool ambiance at night.
Eight captivating exterior colors are available: Hermosa Blue, Mineral Black, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian, Majestic White, Lunar White, striking Dynamic Sunstone Red and, new for 2022, Slate Gray. Powering every 2022 QX50 is the world’s first mass-production variable-compression turbocharged (VC-Turbo) engine that helps to deliver enhanced efficiency or dynamic power, based on the driver’s input. Every QX50 is equipped with advanced ProPILOT Assist technology to support the driver during singlelane travel on selected highways. When engaged, ProPILOT Assist can help the driver stay centered within their lane, brake, or accelerate, which can help to reduce fatigue on long journeys.
