Just to make life more difficult, Infiniti updates another superlative choice in the luxury, mid-size sports utility category: The 2023 QX60 Autograph all-wheel drive.

The 2023 InfinitiI QX60 is available in four appealing grades, Pure, Luxe, Sensory and Autograph. Each of which can be optionally equipped with Infiniti Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Every QX60 features a standard suite of active safety technology including Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Assist.

“Blending elegant design with a serene cabin and convenient features that make every drive easier, the Infiniti QX60 strikes a bold impression for drivers desiring space and luxury,” said Craig Keeys, Group Vice President. “The addition of Infiniti Premium Care for 2023 makes QX60 ownership even more appealing.”

Premium Care includes three years of scheduled maintenance including oil changes, tire rotations, brake fluid change, in-cabin air filter replacement and tire road hazard support.

The 2023 QX60 refines its appeal with a wireless phone charging pad now standard across all grades, the addition of a sleek frameless rearview mirror and revised lower bumper trim accent colors: gloss black and dark gray.

Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, QX60 generates 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. The engine is rated up to a 6,000 pound towing capacity, and includes a trailer hitch, tow wiring harness, tow electronic control unit and sway control.

Exterior highlights were obsidian roof rails, 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels, and power-folding, heated, auto-dimming outside mirrors.

QX60 seats up to seven adults with plenty of room to maneuver. Cargo space is limited with all seats occupied, but plentiful and even cavernous with third-row, and second-row seats folded flat. In a week’s worth evenly split city and highway driving, I averaged in the low 20’s in miles per gallon fuel economy.

Creature comforts are plentiful, and match most luxury cars. My favorites included a power panoramic moonroof, second-row captain’s chairs, power, heated, and ventilated front seats with massage feature, adaptive front lighting, quilted, semi-aniline front seats and dashboard, motion-activated power rear lift gate, and push-button with remote start.

Audio and infotainment are also top drawer. Highlights include a Bose performance 17-speaker audio system, navigation with MapCare and Premium Traffic, wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-based Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Additional equipment includes a 10.8-inch head-up display, a camera-based smart rear-view mirror.

Driver assistance technology makes driving almost foolproof. Highlights include front and rear parking sensors, and Pro Pilot Assist that aids drivers with steering assist, speed limit assist, speed adjust by route and intelligent cruise control with stop and hold.

Completing a truly voluminous list of standard features, is Infiniti’s safety suite. In addition to those previously mentioned, features include predictive forward collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, moving object detection and front pre-crash seat belts.

Base Price: $65,585
