The Infiniti JX becomes the 2014 QX60, will come to New York


The 2014 Infiniti QX60 will be the second model from the Japanese company to use the new naming structure and will have for the first time a hybrid version. Since the Q50 had spotlight on the Geneva Motor Show, Infiniti wants the QX60 to have all the attention at the New York International Auto Show.

The 2014 QX60 premium crossover won't have any exterior or interior changes besides the new hybrid version. This new system joins a 2.5 liter petrol engine with an electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for an overall power output of around 250hp (184kW, electric motor helps with 20hp or 15kW).

Infiniti says it has the performance of a 3.5 liter V6 with the fuel economy of a 4 cylinder engine, and since it has a fuel consumption of 9.1 liters per 100km (26mpg US) it is not far from the truth.

This crossover with room for seven people will cost around €2300 ($3000) more than the normal version.
