Infiniti has disclosed pricing details for the 2016 QX50 which kicks off at $34,450 in rear-wheel drive guise.

 

If you want the all-paw version, it will set you back at least $35,850 and to both prices Infiniti attaches a destination and handling fee worth $995. Compared to the 2015 model year, the new version adds $1,700 worth of goodies at a more accessible price and more importantly, the wheelbase has been stretched by 3.2 inches (8.1 cm) while the overall length has grown by 4.5 inches (11 cm) which translates into an extra 8.3 cubic feet of interior volume. Most of the added room can be noticed in the back where the legroom has increased by 4.3 inches (11 cm) while knee room has jumped by 3.9 inches (10 cm).

 

Aside from getting bigger, the 2016 QX50 comes with several cosmetic tweaks similar to recent Infiniti models and they also jacked up the ride height by 0.8 inches (2 cm). Even more good news as there's now a more generous list of standard equipment which includes heated seats and a moonroof while fresh 19-inch wheels have been added to the catalog along with a Hagane Blue paint.

 

There aren't any changes in the engine department, so the QX50 soldiers on with a 3.5-liter V6 that pushes out 265 bhp (198 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 248 lb-ft (336 Nm) of torque at 4,400 rpm sent to the rear axle or to all four wheels through a continuously variable transmission.

Infiniti will start taking orders for the revised QX50 luxury crossover later this month.
