INFINITI announces its upcoming QX60 three-row crossover will feature an advanced Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive system.
Available later this year, the 2022 INFINITI QX60 marries its 3.5-litre V-6 with an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission and the new all-wheel-drive system, which has been tested in varying harsh conditions.
Part of that near-instant response is thanks to the all-wheel-drive system’s new direct coupling mechanism that engages the rear wheels almost instantly when more grip is needed.
Compared to all-wheel-drive systems that utilize electromagnetic coupling, which requires detectable wheel slip to engage, the new Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system uses a host of sensors to predict when more grip is needed.
Up to 50 per cent of the all-new QX60’s power can be delivered to the rear wheels for greater traction.
the new INFINITI QX60’s Active Brake Limited Slip system utilizes the vehicle’s brakes to direct torque from side to side.
That’s particularly useful on roads that are partially iced over when two wheels have traction and two don’t; INFINITI’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive nearly instantly senses grip and directs power to the correct wheels.
More details about the 2022 INFINITI QX60 will be made available closer to market launch later this year.
