Update: My own errors never cease to amaze me. The Q70 Sedan will debut tomorrow with a Q70L version.
Big news this week from Infiniti, which will debut revised versions of the
QX70 Q70 and QX80 SUVs, formerly known as the FX M and QX.
The look is highly likely to reflect the latest QX60 and Q50 styles — but there is a nugget of interesting info here as well.
QX70 Q70 will debut a LWB version promising five extra inches of legroom in back! This will make it very commodious versus the pinched-glass version today.
So, in what must be the silliest use of time for a car coming out in less than 50 hours from this moment… here is a mash-up of the QX70 and the the QX60’s rear glass region — creating a pretty striking silhouette while also adding all that room in back…!
Stay tuned for the new QX70 and QX80 this Wednesday, and a full QX60 buyers guide from us tomorrow. Our coverage of the NY debuts may be slightly delayed because we are headed to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the big Mustang 50th celebration!

INFINITI ANNOUNCES TWO WORLD DEBUTS AT NY AUTO SHOW
Updated Q70 sedan and QX80 SUV Motor into Javits Thursday, April 17
At the New York International Auto Show this week, Infiniti will host the global debut of its updated 2015 Infiniti Q70 luxury performance sedan and 2015 QX80 full-size luxury SUV.
Extensively revised for 2015, the Q70 will debut with a fresh look front and rear, and there’s a new long-wheelbase model. Available with either a 3.7-liter, 330-horsepower V6 or 5.6L, 420-horsepower V8 and with either rear- or all-wheel drive, the Q70L has more than five inches of additional legroom, making it a luxurious sedan alternative to large crossovers.
The 2015 QX80 will also be shown wearing revised exterior and interior trim, and the company will announce a new ultra-luxury QX80 Limited model that features special exterior and interior appointments. These include special leather soft-touch and seating surfaces, unique new open-pore wood trim throughout, as well as dark-accent trim on the exterior.
Infiniti’s press conference will be held Thursday, April 17 at 9:55 am, with remarks by Michael Bartsch, Vice President of Infiniti Americas.
