    Infiniti Planning Five New Models by 2022

      ...prepare to be electrified... 

    Infiniti is planning on launching five new models over the next 3 years. The first will be the QX55 that we reported on the other day.  It is a crossover coupe version of their QX50 crossover and is expected to be powered by the same 2.0-liter variable compression engine.

    Next up is the redesigned QX60. Expect it to look much more SUV like than that of a crossover. Infiniti says the styling will be dramatically different than the QX60 on the lots today. They mention that the gas powered model will have a large grille, which implies there will be an electrified model coming as well.  They are also planning on offering two 12.3-inch touch screens and a two-tone roof.  The QX60 is Infiniti's best selling vehicle.

    After that, Infiniti will be launching three electrified vehicles, a crossover and two sedans.  The vehicle will be offered as fully electric or with serial hybrid technology which is similar to that in the Chevy Volt where a gasoline engine recharges the batteries which power the car. Styling is expected to take after the Q-Inspiration concept shown at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.  The three vehicles are following a "three vehicles, one platform" concept and will all be related.

    That’s good since I don’t think they have had a new product in about 5 years.

    QX50 was last year.

    QX30 was two years before that.

    LONG overdue. Definitely see some major Cadillac Escala design cues in front end and hood and the new CT cars design cues with front end and hood, as well as some Jaguar F Type in front and down the side.

    Are we sure Johan D. didn't really go back to Infiniti? 😁

    That’s not much, especially when one is a rebodied GLA they were given in exchange for the X-class.   Mercedes put out an all new E-class with 4 body styles, G-wagon, GLE, GLS, A-class, CLA, refreshed S-class, refreshed C-class, refreshed GLC since 2017.

    Oh stop. Every company goes through these types of cycles. Seemingly nothing for a few years and then BAM! Ten new models in two years.

    Not successful companies, successful ones stay on schedule.

    Not everyone has Benz money

    Nissan-Renault is the 3rd biggest car company in the world.  They should have money unless Carlos Ghosn took it all.

      Infiniti today released a teaser image of its upcoming QX55 crossover coupe. The QX55 is largely expected to be based on the Infiniti QX50, meaning a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive based crossover sporting a variable compression 2.0 liter turbocharged engine and a CVT.  The VC Turbo produces 268 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft of torque.  The base QX50 starts at $37,250, so expect a QX55 to be slightly more money.
      Infiniti will launch the car in 2020, but they say more details will come before then.

      Alfa Romeo still has some crossover rollouts coming, however a recent peak at the quarterly earning statement gave a clue as to what else is happening at the brand, and the truth is, it isn't much. During the earnings call this week, CEO Mike Manley said that Alfa's "future product lineup has been significantly scaled back with a corresponding reduction in capital spend." 
      Alfa currently has two products on the market in North America, the Giulia sedan and Stelvio crossover.  Those will both be getting a refresh for the 2021 model year.  That same year, a new C-segment crossover will make an appearance. This model, previewed by the Tonale concept car, will ride on the same platform as the Fiat 500x and Jeep Renegade. It should eventually be offered as a plug-in hybrid as well.  After that, a B-segment crossover should appear as well. 
      Once the crossovers are on the road though, there isn't much left.  The expected return of the GTV and 8C Competizione don't appear anywhere in the plans.

    • Name the vehicles and engines as compared to where the 5.3 liter V8 resides in hierarchy in trim levels and PROVE  this statement to me with links...   But...remember that the 5.3 liter V8 is a very reliable and durable engine and its quite hard to quantify fuel efficiency numbers vis-a-vis endurance and reliability...    
    • Well I hope they found some fuel economy improvements in that 5.3 V8 because there are other vehicles of similar size that get 25% better fuel economy. That is why I said at first look, and I want to see the full thing in reality. As far as GM styling, the 6th gen Camaro was a bust, they reworked it a year or 2 later and still doesn't look good.  Blazer looks like the Camaro that was a bust.  The Malibu has been pretty forgettable the past 5 years, the Silverado doesn't look good, that new Tahoe/Suburban don't look good.  I could argue ATS/CTS look better than CT4/CT5, but they are pretty close.  GMC styling has been pretty good, not much wrong there, but Chevy/Cadillacs all look very similar to each other and they aren't on a good track.
    • This is just subjective bullshyte. You are entitled to your opinion, and I WILL agree with you on the last 4-5 years part that GM is bombing in their looks department... BUT...the Escalade is still under wraps...picture is fuzzy and most of the details of the front end are covered up... While if the Escalade really does ending up being a scaled up XT6 in the front, Ill agree with you that the Escalade will be dud in the looks department,  but we BOTH cant come to THAT conclusion UNTIL we get the reveal... So...  
    • You only look at the HP and torque ratings? What about the efficiency numbers?  Dont those count? I do not know as I havent researched that, but if you are gonna blow your stack bitchin', at least get ALL the numbers so you could REALLY compare and contrast...and when I mean ALL the numbers, I REALLY mean ALL the numbers... The engine is NOT a completely new design. Like the C8's LT2 engine as compared to the C7's LT1's engine... Im not talking about the redesigning certain components for the LT2 to be used in a mide-engined configuration, I do mean the small changes to the cylinder heads and valve trains to improve combustion efficiency and stuff... This new engine under the hood of these new big Utes, If Im correct, use the new LT2 architecture...but they are TUNED to produce the same HP and torque numbers as the previous models...but Im willing to bet that this new engine is MORE efficient in all the efficient ways that are deemed to be...efficient... C'mon, bro...you are NOT THAT obtuse....  
    • I like the GLB much more, but this GLA looks better than the old GLA which was rather awkward looking with that squashed down roof.  This will appeal to the hot hatch crowd that now want to sit up higher.  I think this new A/B-class interior is top notch for this small luxury segment and pretty much none of the competition has over 300 hp, let alone the coming 400 hp.
