Nissan and Infiniti are catching up with the competition. The Rogue is one of the best-selling compact crossovers and the redesign will put the 2024 Infiniti QX50 right at the top of the luxury segment. The third generation of the vehicle is coming just five years after the debut of the current one. Infiniti is going strong into the market, with many debuts in other segments. We saw the coupe QX55 SUV and QX60 mid-size vehicle. Besides the all-new QX50, the next season brings the QX80 based on the Monograph concept, and even maybe a bigger coupe SUV, QX65.
The redesign means many changes. The 2024 QX50 SUV is going to introduce a fresh look with some bold solutions. Still, the key is to keep aesthetic lines and improve the gas mileage. Speaking of that, the main upgrade is coming under the hood, where the new configuration is going to provide way better fuel economy and overall performance. The current engine, a 2.0-liter turbo unit, will probably be back as the base setup. A hybrid system and a performance version are also in the mix.
2024 Infiniti QX50 Dimensions
The current crossover is 185 inches long and the QX50 belongs to the compact segment. Still, there is room for extra few inches for the new generation. The 2024 Infiniti QX50 could be up to 190 in long. That is why we expect a more powerful engine since the weight goes up as well. Width and height won’t be changed too much. Extra length means more room inside the cockpit. However, do not expect too much, since this is still a compact crossover.
The focus will be on the technology and driver-aid systems. Nissan promised some while ago the next level of autonomous drive. But, they are not the only carmaker to announce such gadgets. Currently, GM’s Ultra Cruise is something best in the league. As a premium SUV, the QX50 comes with upscale materials and options even in the base version. For example, leather upholstery, heated seats, a sport steering wheel, a large infotainment system, blind-spot monitor, and many other features will be standard. Upper grades bring navigation, Bose audio, unique interior and exterior details, traffic sign recognition…
2024 Infiniti QX50 Specs, Hybrid, Red Sport Model
A 2.0-liter turbo-four currently delivers 268 hp, which is not bad for the compact luxury crossover class. You can expect to see the entry-level version of the crossover with this engine that also produces 280 lb-ft. Depending on the weight, the gas mileage could be slightly worse. A bigger body means more pounds, but lighter parts can keep the current weight at a similar level. Engineers will do everything to keep the fuel economy around 26-27 mpg combined. An all-wheel drive is optional while the base configuration includes a front-wheel drive.
A hybrid system could improve both the power outputs and gas mileage of the new QX50. Around 300 hp and 30 mpg would be interesting to see and experts believe that an electric motor can squeeze such numbers from the existing four-banger. Also, the Q50 uses a 3.0 V6 and its high-end version might be there for the 2024 Infiniti QX50 Red Sport. The performance edition could do 400 hp and achieve the best 0-60 mph acceleration time.
Infiniti started with updates in the crossover and SUV segments. The first vehicle to enter the new generation is the QX60. The mid-size SUV uses standard trim level lineup – Pure, Luxe, Sensory and Autograph. The same lineup is there for the current QX50. The QX55 has the Essential model as well. We expect news about the full-size QX80 based on the Monograph platform.
It will be interesting to see the 2024 Infiniti QX50 colors. The entry-level comes with a few basic paints – gray, black, and white. Next trims add extra options. Interior themes are two-toned on most grades.
Release Date and Prices
Fans can’t wait to see the new model, which can use QX55 and QX60 as the inspiration for changes. Also, spy photos are unavailable yet. We can only hope that inside sources are right and that QX50 is coming in 2024 as an all-new vehicle. With all the changes, the price will be higher. Currently, the base version costs around $41,000 and the high-end Autograph with AWD adds nearly $20,000. The next-gen QX50 won’t be under $45,000 and the high-end decides on a performance engine and hybrid setup. The Red Sport might be above $70,000, which will make the QX60 a competitor to the BMW X3 M.
