2019 Infiniti QX50 starts fresh with a new face and trick engine

https://www.autoblog...-qx50-revealed/

 

INFINITI_2019+QX50_Hi+Res_Embargo+1124+1

 

Last week, Infiniti rolled out the refresh of the big daddy QX80 in Dubai. At this year's Los Angeles Auto Show, the Japanese automaker is poised to reveal something that's bound to be far more mainstream: the 2019 Infiniti QX50 and its trick variable compression turbocharged engine, or VC-T. In addition to the new engine, the QX50 drops rear-wheel drive in favor of an all-new front-wheel-drive platform and gets the new ProPilot assist technology that debuted on the Nissan Leaf. 

The QX50 may be the headliner, but the engine is the really interesting bit. This 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four can adjust the the stroke of the pistons on the fly, varying the engine's compression from 8:1 to 14:1, and giving the new midsize crossover improved efficiency and diesel-like torque. It's rated at 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, down 57 horses but up 14 pound-feet. Front-wheel-drive models hit 60 mph in 6.7 seconds. That drops to 6.2 seconds with all-wheel drive.

Combined fuel economy is 27 mpg for front-wheel-drive QX50s and 26 mpg for all-wheel-drive variants, both up from the abysmal 20 mpg combined rating of the current model. Power is sent through a continuously variable transmission. If it's like other Nissan and Infiniti CVTs, it will be inoffensive if a bit lifeless. We've covered the details of this powertrain extensively already, but it's great to see companies giving more life to the internal combustion engine. 

The new platform marks a big improvement over the outgoing QX50 in terms of platform rigidity and space efficiency. Rear-wheel drive might be fun, but it's never ideal from a packaging perspective. Cargo capacity is up from 31.6 cubic-feet to 37 cubic-feet. With the seats down, the space expands to 60 cubic feet, up from 50.1 cubic feet. That's not exactly class-leading, but it's no longer among the class-worst. The 2019 QX50 will use a new type of high-tensile steel, improving torsional rigidity by 23 percent and shaving overall weight.

if the specs on sgcarmart are correct, this car is really heavy at 1840kg. GLC and F pace are at 1710kg

 

though it has a VC turbo engine, not sure how's the FC in real world.

there's quite a few reviews on YouTube.

 

Generally, seems taken a step back.

 

Mating a laggy CVT with a turbo engine? It doesn't seems to go well with end users. I think the biggest turn-off is the infotainment system that look so dated and weird (2 screen).

Unlikely to excite our market if priced too close to the luxury brands.

Car was launched in US 2 years ago.

At least 200k for this QX50?

Blame Nissan's obsession with their CVTs.
