The 2019 Infiniti QX70 could be the last run of this crossover. Leaked information reported about the replacement of the mid-size luxury SUV. However, it seems like the company will give another chance to this model before the final decision. Reason for the end of production, or a break, is aging design. The QX70 could return pretty quick but in totally different shape and purpose.
Sales numbers of the luxurious crossover are not so bad. However, the company wants to squeeze as much as possible from the SUV. So, chiefs think it can be better. The 2019 QX70 will be the last edition before the pause, and the company will refresh the lineup with new models. The Infiniti QX90 could fill this spot for a while until QX70 comes back.
2019 Infiniti QX70 Drivetrain Specs
With an upcoming pause in development in production, there is no need for engineers to develop new engines. So, the power supplier for the 2019 Infiniti QX70 will be a 3.7-l V-6, present in the current crossover. The premium SUV pairs 7-speed automatic transmission to the drivetrain for smooth shifting and power distribution. Front-wheel drive is coming standard, and the vehicle will be available as AWD model. Of course, this version costs more than the base unit.
Fuel Economy and Parts
The luxurious crossover is not a true off-road vehicle. Its ground clearance is not generous as on Mazda CX-5, for example. On the other hand, it can be a perfect vehicle for an on-road drive. If you need a commuting vehicle or safe car for long trips, then 2019 Infiniti QX70 could be the right solution. Nevertheless, some would still need to get off the road and test its capabilities. It won’t come out good.
Mileage of the upcoming Infiniti QX70 crossover will keep the values as for the predecessor. So, 19 mpg combined, with 22 mpg on the highway is the best the crossover can do. This is for 2WD, while all-wheel drive model comes with 1 mpg worse rating on each terrain.

But, we are sure that Infiniti will update the last model as it is adequate for SUV. That means new infotainment system and features, better safety and comfort. Buyers of Infiniti models have already got used to premium materials, so there is no reason to worry about. Also, the 2019 QX70 will have the latest Apple CarPlay and Android Auto components, so entertainment is going to be on the highest level.
