Infiniti confirms to be introducing an updated Q70 sedan and QX80 SUV at NYC

Infiniti got on the newsreel to announce that they’ll be bringing some updated Q70 sedans and QX80 SUVs to the New York Auto Show later this week, featuring revisions equating to mid-cycle refreshes.

Following Infiniti’s recent nomenclature makeover, the Infiniti Q70 was formerly the M performance sedan while the QX80 was once the QX56.

The Q70 will still be offered with a Nissan-sourced 3.7L V6 good for 330hp while an optional 5.6L 420hp V8 is also optional, channeling power to either the rear or all-four wheels.

The QX80 will still be equipped with the brand’s 5.6L V8, the same found in the lesser Nissan Titan and Armada trucks.

Updated Q70 sedan and QX80 SUV Motor into Javits Thursday, April 17

At the New York International Auto Show this week, Infiniti will host the global debut of its updated 2015 Infiniti Q70 luxury performance sedan and 2015 QX80 full-size luxury SUV.

Extensively revised for 2015, the Q70 will debut with a fresh look front and rear, and there’s a new long-wheelbase model.

Available with either a 3.7-liter, 330-horsepower V6 or 5.6L, 420-horsepower V8 and with either rear- or all-wheel drive, the Q70L has more than five inches of additional legroom, making it a luxurious sedan alternative to large crossovers.

The 2015 QX80 will also be shown wearing revised exterior and interior trim, and the company will announce a new ultra-luxury QX80 Limited model that features special exterior and interior appointments. These include special leather soft-touch and seating surfaces, unique new open-pore wood trim throughout, as well as dark-accent trim on the exterior.

Infiniti’s press conference will be held Thursday, April 17 at 9:55 am, with remarks by Michael Bartsch, Vice President of Infiniti Americas.

The Auto Show runs from April 18 – 27, 2014 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan. Press Preview days are April 16 & 17.
