The 2023 Infiniti QX55 Gains More Standard Tech

Infiniti made some small changes to the QX55 for 2023, its second year on the market.

  • The QX55 was only introduced last year, so changes are minimal for 2023

  • The ProPILOT Assist system is now standard on every version

  • The three versions see a price increase for the new model year

Infiniti revealed today the changes made to the QX55 for the 2023 model year, the most notable of which is the addition of the ProPILOT Assist suite to the base model.

The coupe-like compact SUV was launched last year as an alternative to the more conventional QX50, so it was expected that the 2023 version would remain largely untouched.

A number of small details are different than in 2022, such as the addition of a USB-C port for rear-seat passengers, standard folding power mirrors, welcome lights in the rear door handles, and a four-way power lumbar adjustment for the driver’s seat.

The bigger news in this update however is the increased availability of many active safety systems. Indeed, the ProPILOT suite of driver assistance technologies is now standard across the board while it was not available on the entry-level QX55 Luxe last year.

This means that every QX55 will benefit from adaptive cruise control and lane-centring assist, which can partially take control of the vehicle on highways and in traffic.

In addition, the QX55 now features blind spot intervention, which prevents collisions with vehicles in the blind spot by acting on the steering system to bring the vehicle back in its lane if it drifts out of it without the turn signal being used.

The traffic sign recognition system and the adaptive headlamps have also been made available to more versions of the SUV this year.

Since the changes are limited to technology and light cosmetic touches, the 2023 Infiniti QX55 will continue to be powered by the 2.0L VC-Turbo engine which features variable compression in order to be more powerful and more efficient, depending on the demands of the driver and the road conditions.

In terms of pricing in Canada, the entry-level QX55 Luxe sees an increase of $2,700 to its starting price, which now settles at $54,895. The Essential trim jumps up by $1,700 to reach $58,895 and the top-of-the-line Sensory climbs $1,200 for a new price tag of $62,395.

Infiniti says to expect the 2023 version of the QX55 to reach Canadian dealer lots later in the summer of 2022.
