Infiniti has revealed their QX Sport Inspiration concept at the Beijing auto show and since then, publications have been speculating that the concept could be the next QX70 but it’s more likely to be the next QX50.
Its size alone would discount the concept as the next QX70. The concept is a lot smaller than the QX70 with a 110.2-inch wheelbase, 181.1 inches in length, 74.8 inches wide, and 65 inches high. These measurements are very close to the QX50’s before it was stretched out for the 2016 model year. The 2015 Infiniti QX50 SUV had a 110.2-inch wheelbase, was 182.3 inches in length, 71 inches wide, and 61.9 inches high.
The QX Sport concept could be a QX50 successor or a heavily updated version of it. Either way, with around 9 inches of ground clearance the QX concept could be designed as an on and off road vehicle like the Toyota 4Runner.
Infiniti hasn’t released and engine info yet but we could be seeing a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 under the bonnet, the same engine already used in the Q50 and Q60. This could be the start of a two-tier QX50 since the V6 has been tuned to produce 300 and 400 horsepower.
