One look at the Infiniti lineup, and you know there’s something special about the QX55. It’s the brand’s only vehicle with a model designation that doesn’t end in an even factor of 10: Q50, Q60, QX50, QX55, QX60 and QX80. Its low alphanumeric tells you this is a compact SUV, and that extra five means it’s like the QX50, but with a fashionable sloping roofline. Otherwise, it’s a QX50. And aside from a revised center console that now incorporates a wireless charging pad, plus a newly standard rear door alert, the QX55 is unchanged for the 2024 model year.
Powertrain Specs and MPG
Like the QX50, the 2024 QX55 is powered by Infiniti’s innovative and wildly complex turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has a variable compression ratio. It puts out 268 horsepower and 280 pounds-feet of torque and is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. All QX55s are all-wheel drive, and the EPA rates the model at 22/28/25 mpg city/highway/combined.
Standard Safety System for All
Infiniti fits every QX55 with a full complement of advanced driver-assist systems, including forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, rear automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitors, lane departure warning and automatic high beams. The brand’s ProPilot Assist system, which incorporates adaptive cruise control and active lane departure steering assist, is also standard across the line. A 360-degree parking camera system is standard on the two higher trim levels, Essential and Sensory, as well.
