Holli was invited by Infiniti, through A Girl's Guide to Cars, to Yellowstone National Park in Big Sky Montana to experience the full line of 2023 Infiniti products in winter and adverse driving conditions. Infiniti supplied the vehicles and instructors to teach how to handle the vehicles and the course which included driving on slick snow and ice.
The QX60 was a new model for Infiniti in 2022. Here in 2023, the lineup carries over with our top-of-the-line tester Autograph AWD model. This really is an excellent luxury vehicle for families. This QX60 has three rows of leather-wrapped seating, heated and ventilated front seats with massage, second-row heated captain's chairs, second-row manual sunshades, and tri-zone automatic climate control with second and third-row ceiling-mounted vents.
Those second-row seats work well with child safety seats installed. Each captain's chair tips forward and out of the way, allowing easy access to the third row of seats while still maintaining its shape allowing it to move out of the way even with a child seat in place.
Luxury abounds in the QX60 Autograph, from all the leather on the seats and dash to the head-up display, fully digital instrument cluster, and the 12.3-inch infotainment screen.
Power is supplied by Infiniti's 3.5-liter naturally aspirated direct-injection V6 making 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Power is routed through a new 9-speed automatic transmission to all four tires thanks to Infiniti's intelligent all-wheel drive. Our tester had Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires installed for our particular driving occasion.
