Seeing as the average transaction price of a new car is bobbing and weaving around the $45,000 mark, $42,045 (all prices include destination) for a five-occupant luxury SUV sounds weirdly reasonable, but that’s what Infiniti is asking for its base 2024 QX50. Entering its golden years half a decade after its last major redesign — and in the industrywide transition to electrification — the QX50 remains unchanged for the 2024 model year.

Powertrain Specs and MPG

The QX50 is powered by Infiniti’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. We’ll save the deeply nerdy engineering talk, but this engine, which has a variable compression ratio, is so unique and complex that no other automaker builds one like it. The purpose is to better balance power and efficiency, but the degree to which it fulfills that purpose is debatable.

The engine’s 268 horsepower and 280 pounds-feet of torque top some competitors, but not all, and not by the sort of gobsmacking margin you might hope for from a technological marvel. Ditto the fuel economy: Paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission, the 2.0-liter is good for an EPA-rated 23/29/26 mpg city/highway/combined in front-wheel-drive QX50s and 22/28/25 mpg with all-wheel drive.

Safety Equipment

A comprehensive suite of advanced safety features is standard on the 2024 QX50, including ProPilot Assist, which bundles adaptive cruise control with lane-centering steering. The roster also features blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, rear automatic braking, automatic high beams, and forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking. Higher trim levels add a 360-degree camera system, traffic sign recognition, a head-up display and adaptive headlights that turn with the steering wheel.

Pricing and Trim Levels

The 2024 Infiniti QX50 is available now. All trim levels except the Autograph come with standard FWD, with AWD a $2,000 option on most of the lineup but standard on the Autograph. Full line pricing is as follows:
