Infiniti made the surprise announcement last December that starting from the 2014 model year all of its cars would be renamed under a new naming strategy
based around the letter Q. The first of these new ‘Q cars,’ the 2014 Q50, goes on sale on August 5 priced from $37,605
It will then be followed by the rest of Infiniti’s rebranded lineup, starting with the 2014 QX60, the replacement for the JX, and the 2014 QX70, the replacement for the FX.
Infiniti has today released pricing information for these two models.
We can confirm that the 2014 QX60 will priced from $42,545, including a $995 destination charge, while the 2014 QX70 will be priced from $45,945, including the same destination charge. This sees a $300 price increase for the 2013 JX from its transition to XQ60 labeling, while pricing of the 2013 FX range remains identical to that of the new QX70 range.
The base QX60 sticks with the JX’s 3.5-liter V-6 and a hybrid version, featuring the same engine paired with an electric motor, remains in the stable.
The base QX70, meanwhile, comes with a 3.7-liter V-6 but for almost $17k more you can upgrade to a 5.0-liter V-8. Infiniti hasn’t revealed power figures for the V-8 but we suspect it will be unchanged at 390 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque as featured in the old FX50.
Beyond these, look for Infiniti to rebrand its G coupe and convertible as Q60s, its M sedan as the Q70 and its QX56 as the QX80.
