The press service of the Japanese automaker has published a teaser, which is dedicated to the new coupe crossover Infiniti QX55. The new 2021 model year will debut in November.

The 2021 Infiniti QX55 will be the next coupe crossover in the Japanese brand’s lineup after the QX70 exits the market. The presentation of the novelty will take place on November 11 live. Infiniti calls the QX55 “a return to the luxury crossover coupe segment.”

As the name suggests, the new QX55 should use the same fundamentals as the small QX50 crossover.

The car will compete with the German BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. The recently released official teaser features a beautifully curved roofline and a small duck tail spoiler. We can also tell you that crossover proportions fit together very well, avoiding some of the humpback awkwardness that plagues other crossover coupes.

Infiniti is still silent on the details of the new QX55’s engine range, but we can safely assume that it will borrow the 2.0-liter variable compression inline-four found in the regular QX50 crossover, where it produces 268 horsepower (380 Nm ). We also expect a continuously variable transmission. In the standard version, the model will be offered with front-wheel drive, while the all-wheel drive system will be available at an additional cost.

It is unclear if the automaker will unveil its new QX55 crossover at any event and when it might happen. The auto show in Los Angeles in 2020 has not been officially postponed, so it is possible that the world debut of the coupe-like novelty of the 2021 model year will take place there.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about what awaits the premium brand Infiniti in the near future. In order to save enough money, the management of the premium brand may completely abandon the further use of rear-wheel drive platforms.
