Infiniti used to be a brand that I stood firmly in their corner and wanted to be a part of for many years considering our family owned a V8-powered 2009 Infiniti FX50 for many years and praised it for being one of the best vehicles we ever owned. After ownership of our FX50, the brand seemed to not have vehicles for people like myself, enthusiasts who once respected the Infiniti brand for being a little bold for the approach to luxury and performance wrapped in a unique eye-catching package. Now, after spending a week in the newly redesigned 2022 Infiniti QX60 I can safely say some of that old passion that attracted people like myself has returned, somewhat.

The new 2022 Infiniti QX60 is completely redesigned for the model year with its biggest welcoming change being the move to a conventional automatic transmission over the outgoing CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). Such a move has raised the eyebrows of many and is respected amongst the automotive community and those who are lighthearted enthusiasts. However, the transmission change isn’t the only thing that’s going to win over a new audience in the QX60, it offers up a much more cohesive luxury package that’s refined outside and in that will ultimately give the competition a new run for their money, almost in a literal sense.

Powering the new 2022 QX60 is their tried and true 3.5-liter V6 engine, which at this point is a brand favorite and a powerplant that has stood the test of time. Producing 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, the V6 gets a new life to put down power through an automatic transmission with real gears, 9 of them. The new 9-speed automatic transmission is a smooth operator only hindered by somewhat slow shifts and lethargic actions when you place it into drive, reverse, or park. Basically, the transmission takes a little longer than I would like to react to your simple shifts using a unique but easy-to-use shifter.
