Infiniti Canada announced pricing today for the 2011 Infiniti QX and it seems they have borrowed a page from last year’s book.
Despite boasting improved fuel economy and 25 per cent more power, the 2011 model will carry the same $73,000 MSRP as its predecessor.
“We wanted to provide luxury SUV buyers with a new look, better fuel economy and industry-leading user-friendly technologies – without a higher price tag,” said Wendy Durward, director of Infiniti Canada. “With the new QX, we’ve done just that.”
The new QX will hit Canadian showrooms this summer and will be offered in two models, the Infiniti QX56 4WD 7-passenger and the Infiniti QX56 4WD 8-passenger.
There is an optional technology package for $8,000. Powering the QX will be a new 5.6-litre V8 engine, combining the responsive acceleration of Infiniti’s VVEL (Variable Valve Event & Lift) technology with the efficiency of Direct Injection Gasoline (DIGÔ) and 7-speed automatic transmission.
Horsepower is up 25 per cent from 2010 and 413 lbs-ft of torque allows for a towing capacity of 8,500 lb.
Fuel economy has also been bettered by 10 per cent.
