The Nissan’s luxury brand, the famous Infiniti, decided to treat us with a very special new model in a year or so. The new coupe, called the 2017 Infiniti Q60, will be everything but a typical luxurious coupe. Though not much is known about this new model, there are numerous assumptions regarding its features. To be completely honest, there are too many assumptions. Apparently, nothing about the new model is known for sure, except for its premiere date. The new 2017 Q60 will debut at the next year’s Detroit Auto Show. Actually, it won’t – the 2017 Infiniti Q60 concept will be presented there, but the manufacturer said that the production version and the concept will be, well, the same. Though the premiere date is certain, it is still unclear what the new coupe will look like or which model year will it belong to. Some reports say that the new Q60 will be released at the beginning of 2016, thus being the 2017 Q60, while others claim that it should be released next fall, which means it will be the 2016 model. Either way, the new model will be a real treat. At least that is what we can conclude from the sea of speculations and assumptions. But let’s be honest, if the new model were to be a letdown, no one would be talking about it. The number of rumors can only indicate that the 2017 Infiniti Q60 will be a hot stuff, and also, that the manufacturer is a true bully for keeping us in the dark. Let’s take a peek at what we do know about the 2017 Infiniti Q60 so far.
2017 Infiniti Q60 Exterior Style
The most speculated aspect of the new 2017 Infiniti Q60 is, without a doubt, its appearance. There are many different opinions on this topic and frankly, they all seem valid to be true. Therefore, we shall only tell you which are the loudest voices in this matter and let you decided what you think is the right answer. Firstly, most of the rumors say that the new model will use the Infiniti Q50’s platform. The latter is a sedan; so naturally, the platform would be altered to fit the new coupe. This rumor caused many of the Infiniti fans to think that the new Q60 could actually inherit the sedan’s style and design as well. On the other hand, there are also speculations saying that the new model will look like the Q80 Inspiration concept. This concept had its premiere at this year’s Paris Auto Show and was taken pretty well by the audience. The new concept could be the base for the new coupe’s design, especially because it is really modern, appealing and brand new. The last assumption regarding the new model says that the manufacturer will actually develop a whole new look for the 2017 Infiniti Q60, thus making it more special and impressive. According to these speculations, the new coupe would look a bit of the line when compared to other Infiniti models, but still amazing and dominant.
Advanced Technology and Other Improvements
However, the 2017 Infiniti Q60 won’t be all about the looks. Since the luxury coupe market is quite a fierce place to be competing at, the new coupe will simply have to offer more than just a pretty face. The Q60 should come with some innovative technologies which will improve its performance and the experience of driving it. According to some sources, the new model will be made out of lightweight materials in order to reduce the weight, and thus improve performance and fuel efficiency. As for the interior, though there are no official reports about this topic yet, expect the same level of luxury and elegance as in any Infiniti model. And possibly, more or less the same interior design. The 2017 Infiniti Q60 will come with a fully equipped cabin and all the necessary (and some not-so-necessary, in a good way) gadgets.
Twin-Turbo 3.0-Liter V6 Engine
The 2017 Infiniti Q60’s powertrain still hasn’t been announced, but the rumors say that the new coupe will probably use the twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine installed under the hood of the Q80 Inspiration concept. However, though this sounds like a logical and possible choice, it is not reliable information, so take it with a grain of salt. Other engine options are not being mentioned.
2017 Infiniti Q60 Debut
The 2017 Infiniti Q60 Concept, and therefore the production model as well, in a way, will have its debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. As for the release, the exact date hasn’t been set yet, but there are two possible dates speculated. According to the first one, the new coupe will be released next fall, while the less optimistic rumor sets the Q60’s release in early 2016.
