What You Will Like

The 2018 QX60 competes among luxury SUVs, but it offers more luxury and refinement than many of its competitors. Standard luxury items such as leather seats and a panoramic sunroof immediately distinguish the QX60 from the run-of-the-mill minivan. The QX60 strikes a nice balance between space, luxury and price, adding a dose of clever design and state-of-the-art technology for good measure.

What's New For 2018

The biggest news for the 2018 QX60 is the addition of a new rear door alert system that will remind drivers if they've left something in the rear seats; such as a pet, valuables or just the groceries. It works by noting weather or not the rear doors were opened prior to setting off. If the rear doors are not then opened again once the destination is reached, the car will alert the driver that they may be forgetting something. The new system is designed to be unobtrusive and can easily be switched off should the owner perfer.


  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 6 Years / 70,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Compare the 2018 Infiniti QX60

Loading Comparison...


Nissan’s luxury division launched its midsize three-row, seven-passenger premium crossover as a 2014 model. Little has changed for the 2018 model year over last year, except for a newly standard Rear Door Alert system. Sluggish sales prompted deletion of the gasoline/electric QX60 hybrid.

The 2018 Infiniti QX60 comes in one trim level, with either front- or all-wheel drive, powered by a 3.5-liter V6, rated at 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, mating with a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Styling is elegantly restrained, helping the QX60 stand out in the popular three-row crossover market. The powertrain is a bit behind the times, with unremarkable performance and fuel-efficiency.

Well-equipped before any options are added, each QX60 comes with leather upholstery and an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, riding on 18-inch wheels. Judicious use of the options list can turn the QX60 into quite a luxurious, if costly, crossover.

The new Rear Door Alert system helps the driver avoid leaving a needed item in the back seat after parking. If the system detects that a back door had been opened prior to driving, and it’s not opened again at the end of the trip, a warning is issued. The system can be turned on and off easily.

A rearview camera is standard, but advanced safety technology is offered only in a series of expensive option groups. Those modern safety options include active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. Some automakers make such contemporary safety features standard, even on vehicles that cost far less.

Crash-test scores have been good. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the QX60 a five-star score overall and for side-impact, but only four stars in the frontal-impact test. The QX60 got a four-star rating for rollover resistance (a calculated figure), a typical result for taller vehicles.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has given the QX60 top Good scores in all crash tests, but the front-passenger position has not been rated in the small overlap frontal crash. The QX60 earned a Superior rating for frontal crash prevention, if optional equipment is included, but headlights were rated Poor.


Infiniti QX60 ($43,300) comes with the 3.5-liter V6 and CVT, front-wheel drive, 18-inch wheels, a moonroof, power liftgate, heated power front seats, leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic temperature control, pushbutton start, rearview camera, 8.0-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity, and Rear Door Alert. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

QX60 AWD ($45,100) substitutes all-wheel drive for the front-wheel drive.

The ($1,800) Premium package includes a 13-speaker Bose stereo, heated steering wheel, and memory seats. Premium Plus ($2,900) adds navigation and a surround-view camera system. The Driver Assistance package ($1,850) includes adaptive cruise control, rear automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors. Stepping up to the ($7,300) Deluxe Technology package adds 20-inch wheels, Bose stereo, active lane control, a motion-sensing power liftgate, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.


Unlike some competitors, the QX60 shuns gimmicks and styling trends, such as bulged fenders or a downward-plunging roofline. Instead, designers focused on straightforward good looks. Minor periodic alterations to the body have kept it competitive in the premium three-row crossover class.

Large doors promise easy entry and exit, including into the third row, while the sizable hatch holds plenty of cargo out back. Though it’s admittedly a heavyweight, the QX60 doesn’t look as hefty as its numbers suggest.

Up front, alongside the puckered grille, headlights team with chrome accents to enclose the floating Infiniti badge. Fenders are devoid of creases and the roofline is reasonably curved, while a crescent-shaped kickback fits gracefully into the bodyside.


Not only is the cabin rich-looking and uncluttered, packed with high-quality materials and nicely finished, it provides a surprising level of comfort.

In terms of passenger space, the QX60 is related to Nissan’s Pathfinder; but it’s a substantial step upward in interior finishes. Each QX60 flaunts leather upholstery, accented by matte silver or wood.

In short, the QX60 comes across just about as expected on a spacious luxury crossover, including a tempting selection of family-focused conveniences.

Both front and second-row seats score highly. Front occupants get the best in comfort, but the second row is especially roomy. Although the third row is readily accessible, it’s best reserved for youngsters or agile adults. Reduced padding and a flatter cushion conspire to make the third row less attractive for long treks.

The second row slides fore/aft by 5.5 inches, providing particular abundant legroom when moved all the way rearward. Of course, that can shrink third-row leg space. Child seats need not be removed to gain access to the third row.

With all three rows of seatbacks upright, cargo space totals an adequate 15.8 cubic feet. Folding down the second and third rows expands volume to 76.5 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

Satisfying road manners help the QX60 maintain its status as a compelling choice for luxury-crossover shoppers. Rather than stress performance in the customary sense, three-row crossovers like the QX60 emphasize practical merits like quietness and stability, as well as such traits as confident braking.

Steering could stand some improvement, but ride comfort reaches past the class average. Handling qualities aren’t as sharp as most other Infiniti models provide, but the pleasing ride might easily overcome any concern.

Both Infiniti and its Nissan parent have invested considerably in CVTs, and that effort shows in smooth operation of the QX60’s transmission. Noise is less of an issue than some CVTs suffer, though the QX60’s relatively coarse V6 engine takes a bit of a toll on overall sound levels.

The Drive Mode selector can be set to Standard, Sport, Eco, or Snow. When properly equipped, a QX60 can tow as much as 5,000 pounds.

Gas mileage trails some three-row competitors, though the thriftiest models tend to cost significantly more. With front drive, the QX60 is EPA-rated 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers the rating to 19/26 mpg City/Highway, but the same 22 mpg Combined. Premium fuel is required


With an admirable amount of standard equipment, the sensibly shapely QX60 could be a sensible choice for families that seek luxury in a sizable, practical crossover. Choosing among option groups can be challenging for buyers who want to carefully select features.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
