Advanced Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive 2022 INFINITI QX60 will debut later this year

INFINITI announced its upcoming QX60 three-row crossover will feature a more advanced Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system that's not only more compact and more advanced but also quicker to support the driver with all-wheel traction in nearly any condition. Available later this year, the 2022 INFINITI QX60 blends its award-winning 3.5-liter V-6 with an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission and the new all-wheel-drive system, which has been rigorously tested in varying conditions from thick blankets of cold snow to scorching sand and slippery wet roads - and nearly every type of surface in between.

The newest Intelligent All-Wheel Drive delivers seamless power delivery, right when the driver expects it - or even before. Part of that near-instant response is thanks to the all-wheel-drive system's new direct coupling mechanism that engages the rear wheels almost instantly when more grip is needed. Compared to all-wheel-drive systems that utilize electromagnetic coupling, which requires detectable wheel slip to engage, the new Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system uses a host of sensors to predict when more grip is needed - sometimes even before the wheels slip.

Up to 50% of the all-new QX60's power can be delivered to the rear wheels for greater traction. What's more, the all-new INFINITI QX60's Active Brake Limited Slip system utilizes the vehicle’s brakes to direct torque from side to side. That’s particularly useful on roads that are partially iced over, when two wheels have traction and two don’t; INFINITI’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive nearly instantly senses grip and directs power to the correct wheels. That advanced performance pays dividends at takeoff or standing starts.

INFINITI's engineering team has spent years testing the all-new QX60 throughout North America in some of the most demanding conditions. Cold-weather testing in areas such as Alaska, northern Quebec, and Michigan has allowed vehicle engineers to tune and calibrate the new all-wheel-drive system for better responsiveness in slippery and brutally cold conditions.
