New York Preview: Infiniti QX60 and QX80 Limitedby Byron Hurd
Infinti's SUVs get new luxury touches for 2019.
Infiniti is getting in on the early New York announcement bandwagon with two Friday previews: Feast your eyes on the Infiniti QX60 and QX80 Limited.
Okay, so maybe "feast" is going a bit far for what is essentially a mild visual enhancement bundled with some existing features, but we don't really have anything negative to say about the looks.
We'll start from the bottom and work our way up. The 2019 Infiniti QX60 Limited can be identified by its dark chrome on its grille, fog lamp trim and door moldings. Limited models also get "premium-paint" (read: like dark chrome, but called something different) roof rails and cross bars, and a glossy paint finish on the lower rear bumper.
If those don't give it away, look for the 19" smoked-finish wheels or, you know, the "Limited" badge on the hatch. Inside, you get contrast-stitched quilted stone leather and accents, leather-wrapped grab handles, dark silver wood trim, a black headliner and unique floor mats (yes, floor mats).
The story is similar on the QX60's bigger brother, but the details are a little different. The wheels are a lot bigger (22") and you get some extra touches like aluminum-finished running boards and branded puddle lamps, but it's essentially the same deal.
Inside, the QX80 diverges a bit more with two-tone leather and Alcantara upholstery, open-pore Ash wood trim and Ultrasuede replacing the QX60's headliner fabric.
The 2019 Infiniti QX60 and QX80 Limited models will go on sale later this year, and pricing will be announced closer to their arrival on dealer lots. Stay tuned.
