2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid

Infiniti QX60 Hybrid 2014The 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid (formerly the Infiniti JX35) adds a second powertrain choice for buyers of Infiniti’s popular premium crossover vehicle. Along with the Q70 Hybrid and previously announced Q50 Hybrid, Infiniti will have a trio of advanced Direct Response Hybrids for the 2014 model year. The new Infiniti QX60 Hybrid is projected to realize 26 miles per gallon fuel economy (combined city/highway driving) – a 24 percent increase over non-hybrid QX60 models. Most significantly, it does so with absolutely no compromise of performance, interior roominess or cargo space compared to standard QX60 models.

The QX60 Hybrid is powered by a 2.5-liter supercharged engine and 15 kW electric motor connected to an advanced CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). Net system horsepower is estimated at 250 horsepower. Based on technology found in the Infiniti M35h Hybrid, the QX60 Hybrid’s Infiniti Direct Response Hybrid system uses a compact Lithium-ion battery and electric motor to provide supplementary power through its one-motor/two-clutch system. An Intelligent Regenerative Braking system partially recharges the battery during vehicle braking.

The Infiniti QX60 Hybrid also offer technologies designed to make owners’ lives a bit easier and more efficient, such as a 15-speaker Bose Cabin Surround sound system with Acoustic Waveguide bass technology and an innovative Infiniti Connection telematics system that can provide navigation guidance to appointments and automatically synch the owner’s schedule through Google Calendar. Also available is a Remote Engine Start System, which allows the owner the option of starting the vehicle remotely using the remote keyless entry system. The system is ideal for warming or cooling the interior, prior to driving, as desired.

The Infiniti QX60 Hybrid’s Driver Assist Package includes the advanced Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) and Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) systems. With this technology, when the transmission is in reverse, the QX60 will help the driver detect crossing vehicles and objects behind the QX60, and, if necessary, the system can automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a collision. Another advanced system utilized as part of the all-around protection philosophy is the Around View Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD). Building on the capabilities of the AVM system, it shows the driver a virtual 360-degree image of the area around the QX60.

The MOD function helps enhance the driver’s situational awareness by providing visual and audible warnings (front or back range object detection) if the system detects moving objects (such as anther vehicle) within the displayed image in situations such as when pulling out of a parking space. Using sophisticated image processing technology, the system detects moving objects within the “top view” (when the vehicle is in Park). When starting off or backing up, it detects moving objects crossing within the front or rear views.

Other available technology includes both Infiniti’s Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) systems, Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system and Blind Spot Intervention (BSI) system. The QX60 Hybrid also offers available advanced Intelligent Cruise Control (Full-Speed Range), Distance Control Assist (DCA), Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA) with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.
