INFINITI growing SUV family takes flight with dynamic art installation in New York City
On August 19, 2021, INFINITI gathered its growing field of new SUVs, including the new 2022 INFINITI QX80, all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60, and recently released 2022 QX55, in New York City with a one-of-a-kind public art installation from acclaimed artist Daniel Wurtzel.
“The new 2022 INFINITI QX80 combines modern luxury paired with exceptional strength,” said INFINITI Americas Group Vice President Jeff Pope. “Alongside the all-new 2022 QX60 that represents the new, forward direction for INFINITI, our SUV lineup is stronger, more advanced, and more intuitive than ever.”
The new three-row SUVs for 2022 — both QX80 and QX60 — complement the bold INFINITI utility-vehicle lineup that includes the award-winning QX50 and stunning QX55.
The new 2022 QX80 has been significantly enhanced with a widescreen, high-definition 12.3-inch INFINITI InTouch display that includes wireless Apple CarPlay and USB-based Android Auto compatibility. Standard on all grades, the new display includes navigation with lane guidance and INFINITI’s InTouch Services. Leather-appointed seats in three rows, heated front seats and second-row captain’s chairs are standard. An all-new wireless smartphone charger is included along with a Bose Premium Sound system and Intelligent Cruise Control to support the driver.
At its heart, the new QX80 is powered by INFINITI’s 5.6-liter V-8 that makes 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque paired to a 7-speed automatic transmission. Equipped with rear-wheel drive as standard, or available with INFINITI All-Mode Four-Wheel Drive, the new 2022 QX80 is as capable and comfortable as ever.
Making a grand entrance at one of New York’s iconic locations — Oculus Transportation Hub — the stunning, all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 points the way forward with a sleek, modern exterior and spacious, serene interior.
“The all-new 2022 QX60 sets the tone for our continuing dialogue with our clients,” Pope said. “It’s intuitive, spacious, and serene. Its technology supports the driver in utmost comfort with enhanced ProPilot Assist with Navi-link and the latest iteration of INFINITI’s Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system.”
Unveiled in June, the all-new QX60 is expected to go on sale in the U.S. this fall for $46,850 MSRP to start.
The three-row QX60 already turned heads with its dynamic reveal film and generous standard equipment including leather-appointed seats in the first two rows, 12.3-inch INFINITI InTouch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility and USB-based Android Auto compatibility. One-touch, easy access to the third row is equipped on all models, and enhanced ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link and 20-inch alloy wheels are included on most grades.
The provocative all-new QX55 rolled into U.S. dealerships last spring, bringing back an iconic silhouette for the brand and returning to the luxury crossover-coupe segment INFINITI created with the groundbreaking FX. Deliveries of the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX55 have exceeded expectations for INFINITI in its first few months and increased showroom traffic, the effect helping to drive monthly sales records for the QX50 mid-size crossover earlier this year.
INFINITI pronounced its arrival in New York with a stunning reveal at the Oculus Transportation Hub featuring an installation by renowned artist Daniel Wurtzel. The installation, called “Sine Wave,” features a dynamic display created by fabric and fans. Wurtzel’s engaging art has inspired thousands worldwide and have been featured in galleries and locations such as the Grand Palais in Paris and during the closing ceremonies for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
