    Infiniti Teases New Crossover Coupe

      ...To be called the QX55

    Infiniti today released a teaser image of an upcoming crossover coupe due to be shown at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance this year.  The QX55 will slot between the QX50 and QX60 in the lineup but will borrow heavily from the QX50 platform.  Not much is known about the crossover except that it will likely be a front-wheel drive based vehicle and feature Infiniti's new 2.0 liter variable compression engine. 

    Infiniti says the QX55 will be in dealerships in Summer of 2020.

    That roof line says I have little headroom for people over 5'6" tall. 🙄

    The return of the Infiniti FX, gone since 2013.  I hope that this is the first Infiniti with an infotainment system that belongs in 2020 not 2010.  I still do not understand why anyone would want a CUV with a coupe roof.

    Oh good, not only will there be QX30, QX40, QX50, QX60, etc But now we can have QX45, QX55, QX65, etc.   The car companies are desperate to get crossover coupes on the market.  I can’t wait til this crossover craze blows up in all their faces.

    Does that include Mercedes Benz?

    Sure, they have 4 sedans to sell.  I won’t miss the death of the GLC coupe or GLA if that happens.

    Ah yes, the sedans that sell in less numbers overall than their CUVs. That makes complete sense </sarcasm>.

     

    As much as I hate the CUV market, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon with the exception of this crossover coupe nonsense. Those will eventually fade into the night.

    I really don't know where Infiniti is trying to go right now. They've already killed the QX30.  The QX50 is flopping hard.

    The better question is why continue Infiniti (and Nissan) in the first place.  Both are not doing well.

    At this point they could go for luxury scooters with the direction they are headed......

      The latest CEO at Nissan, Hiroto Saikawa, is out-of-office permanently as of September 16th after yet another financial scandal rocks the company.  Saikawa is the second Nissan CEO to be tainted by financial misconduct allegations. 
      Allegedly, Saikawa received improper payments with regards to the sale of Nissan stock. The payments were after the date of the sale of the stock was altered and netted Saikawa additional hundreds of thousands of dollars. Saikawa has not yet been charged with a crime. Saikawa originally said he would stay on until a replacement was found, but abruptly changed course and formally resigned today.
      The temporary replacement will be Chief Operating Officer Yasuhiro Yamauchi until a permanent replacement has been found. There are currently ten candidates for the positions and Nissan says it is considering outsiders and non-Japanese.
