2022 Infiniti QX60 Getting Upgraded ProPilot Asssist

2022 QX expected later this year

  • Adds navigation data to driver assistance feature

  • Will have smoother, more intuitive assistance


The all-new 2022 Infiniti QX60, coming later this year, will be the first model from the brand to get its latest ProPilot Assist system. The driving assistance feature has been updated for smoothness as well as to use nav data to do a better job of that driver assistance.

For the latest ProPilot Assist version, debuting on the QX60, Infiniti has added navigation information to the vehicle’s onboard sensor and camera arrays. This gives it advanced notice of things like upcoming curves that will require the vehicle to slow down as well as off-ramp exits that will require a stop. “It doesn’t drive you from point A to point B,” said Infiniti autonomous engineer Melissa Tellez, “but while you’re driving, you’re more comfortable and confident.”

Other tweaks include the ability to brake sooner and more smoothly, and Infiniti says that the steering assistance is more natural than before. It will be able to maintain speeds on downhills better than before thanks to the Intelligent Cruise Control and will relay traffic sign info to the driver on-screen or on the head up display. Set it to follow posted speeds and ProPilot Assist will ask you to change set speed to match or can do so automatically, depending on which you’ve picked.

Infiniti has also modified the feature to restart up to 30 seconds after stopping in stop and go traffic situations. Expect more to trickle out from Infiniti about the 2022 QX60 before it’s finally revealed later this year.
