The new 2012 Infinity QX SUV receives only minor changes from last year's model. The QX SUV has a breaking presence with both innovation and power beneath its skin. This new model was designed to grab and hold attention while conveying its strength and power. This is all done from the blood chrome front grill, which is equipped with bi-xenon headlights and fog lights. There is not another sport utility vehicle on the market that can be mistaken for this one. The headlights are automatically adjusted to precise levels by an adaptive lighting system that comes in this version of the QX. Other intriguing exterior features, which make this an eye-popper include LED taillights, roof rails, running boards, the courtesy lights, sliding moon roof and a powered rear lift gate. The absolutely stunning, contemporary body of the QX is complemented by 20-inch rims, which are standard, but you can also upgrade to optional 22-inch rims, in six different colors. The vehicle is available in colors that include Platinum Graphite, Dark Currant, Mountain Sage, Moonlight White, Platinum and Black Obsidian.

The QX can accommodates up to 8 passengers in its luxurious cabin, which is composed of high-quality materials and the inclusion of an overwhelming implementation of technology. Adults may find the third row seat a tight squeeze so those needing the extra space will want to explore the Cadillac ESV.
The 2012 QX is outfitted with a 5.6-liter V8 engine that delivers 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Paired up with its standard seven-speed automatic transmission, it can hustle to 60 mph in a quick 6.8 seconds. Properly equipped, the QX can tow up to 8,500 pounds, but don't expect any favors at the pump as it only returns 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is available as an option.
This Infinity is equipped with all the fantastic safety features that the product line is so well known for, such as child anchor seats, emergency brake assist, engine immobilizer, stability and traction control, antilock brakes, tire pressure monitoring, dusk sensing headlamps and a whiplash protection system in the front head restraints. However, the QX also offers a Technology Package that increases safety by adding a lane departure warning, brake assist, blind sport warning and collision alert. When tested, it was able to brake from 60 mph in an average of 123 feet.
