For the upcoming 2024 model year, the Infiniti QX50 experiences a marginal price increase, while its features and specifications largely remain unaltered.
Earlier this week, Infiniti revealed that the starting price for the 2024 QX50 will be set at $42,045 when it hits dealerships later this month. This base price, inclusive of an obligatory $1,195 destination fee, represents a $550 increment compared to the 2023 QX50 model.
In terms of available options, the QX50 continues to offer five grades: starting with the entry-level Pure and ascending through Luxe, Sport, Sensory, to the pinnacle Autograph grade. The base Pure grade comes standard-equipped with Infiniti’s distinctive dual-screen interface, featuring an 8.0-inch upper and a 7.0-inch lower touchscreen, along with wired Android Auto compatibility, wireless Apple CarPlay, 19-inch wheels, and the ProPilot Assist driver-assistance technology, which is also offered by its parent company, Nissan.
Priced at $45,345 including the destination charge, the Luxe grade offers additional features such as a panoramic moonroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, roof rails, and a hands-free liftgate. Following the Luxe is the Sport trim, which was inaugurated in the 2023 model year and carries a starting price of $50,245 for 2024. This grade introduces more aggressive design elements—including 20-inch wheels—and is supplemented by a 12-speaker Bose audio system and a surround-view camera system.
At $54,545, the penultimate Sensory grade provides added amenities like rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, maple wood interior accents, a head-up display, and an enhanced 16-speaker audio system. The premium Autograph grade, priced at $59,095, introduces more opulent details such as quilted seat stitching and also comes with an enhanced towing capability of up to 3,000 pounds.
Under the hood, all QX50 models are powered by Infiniti’s VC-Turbo variable compression turbocharged engine. This 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine dynamically adjusts the piston stroke to vary the compression ratio, optimizing either power or fuel efficiency. The engine can operate at any compression ratio ranging from 8:1 for increased power to 14:1 for heightened fuel efficiency and is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive remains standard for most grades, whereas the Autograph grade features all-wheel drive as standard, available as a $2,000 option for other grades.
The engine’s maximum output remains constant at 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Fuel efficiency ratings by the EPA are also unchanged, registering a moderate 26 mpg combined (29 mpg city, 32 mpg highway) for front-wheel drive models and 25 mpg combined (22 mpg city, 28 mpg highway) for those equipped with all-wheel drive.
Introduced in 2019, the QX50 is relatively young in Infiniti’s portfolio, which also includes the older Q50 sedan and the QX80 SUV. The lineup was expanded in the 2022 model year with the introduction of the QX55, a coupe-like variant of the QX50.
