On the outside, the 2016 QX60 gets a refreshed exterior with a new double-arch grille that is flanked by redesigned headlights. The rear gets a new chrome finisher and a new "shark fin" antenna. One other big update is the addition of acoustic glass for better insulation from high frequency noise.

Under the skin, Infiniti's engineers have revised the suspension to give the SUV a more confidence-inspiring driving experience. The independent-strut front and multi-link rear suspension feature new shock absorbers and spring units, which result in smoother ride control with a reduction in body movement when cornering. The steering system has also been revised and now requires just 2.9 turns lock-to-lock.

The standard engine continues to be a 265-hp 3.5L V6, although buyers can choose a hybrid powertrain that consists of a 2.5L four-cylinder and electric motor for a total output of 250-hp and 23 lb-ft. of torque.
