The all-new 2019 INFINITI QX50 melds luxury with impressive performance. It is available in three trims: the Pure for the entry-level, the Luxe in the middle, and the Essential at the top. Each of these is further available in a fuel-efficient rear-wheel drive or a road-gripping all-wheel drive. You can discover which of the following options are found in which trim level by going to your INFINITI dealer in Denville, New Jersey.
To illuminate your drives, the LED headlamps of the INFINITI QX50 turn on and off automatically based on environmental lighting with signature Daytime Running Lights keeping you visible during the day. Available Adaptive Front Lighting aims the headlight beams where you're turning so that you can see more quickly around corners.

Supplying power for your trips is the world's first production-ready 2.0-liter VC-Turbo that adapts to deliver top efficiency and performance. With the help of Continuously Variable Transmission, this motor delivers 268 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque while getting up to an EPA-estimated 31 MPG on the highway and 24 MPG in the city. You can define your drive by choosing from four Driver Mode Selector settings, such as Standard for normal commuting, Sport to increase the fun, Eco to save fuel, and Personal to create your ride.
To help minimize engine noise and vibration when you accelerate, the Active Torque Rod counter-balances vibrations to dampen engine harshness. Direct Adaptive Steering™ technology dispenses with traditional mechanical designs by electronically connecting the steering wheel and wheels. It can then adjust and optimize steering input by up to 1,000 times a second, which gives you more precise control.
The QX50 surrounds up to five passengers with available quilted leather-appointed seating and available Ultrasuede® on the headliner, A-pillars, B-pillars, upper doors, and center console lid accents. A heated steering wheel and front seats with built-in climate control increases comfort under extreme weather conditions. The 60/40-split rear seatbacks recline and also fold flat, so you can carry up to 65.1 cubic feet of cargo.
You can power-customize the front seat up to eight ways with power lumbar, and then store the settings in memory along with the positions of the steering wheel and outside mirrors.
You can stay focused on the road in front of you while checking details, such as speed and navigation with the available Head Up Display, which projects the information in your field of view. When you want to see that's surrounding you, the Around View® Monitor merges video from four externally mounted cameras to give you a virtual top-down view of your vehicle. Moving Object Detection alerts you to objects moving in front of, to the sides of, or behind your crossover.
Enjoy enhanced music from the available Bose® Performance Series Audio System with Advanced Staging Technology. It comes with 16 speakers that project concert-like sound from speaker grilles in genuine aluminum. You, your front passengers, and those seated in back can define separate temperatures with the available Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control. To help when you park, Front and Rear Parking Sensors let you know when you're getting too close to obstacles in the front and back.
The 2019 QX50 received the highest Five-Star Overall Vehicle Safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration because of safety technologies, such as ProPILOT Assist, which protects with two main technologies. Advanced Intelligent Cruise Control ensures that you remain at a safe distance from the car in front by adjusting your speed automatically to compensate for traffic differences. Steering Assist centers you in your lane with slight steering adjustments.
Other safety tech includes Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, which can foresee collisions with vehicles in front of you and apply brakes to prevent an accident. Lane Departure Warning and Prevention alerts you if you start to drift across the road without activating a turn signal. It can then intervene so that you remain in your lane. Distance Control Assist lets you define a distance to the next vehicle and can lessen acceleration when you get too close.
