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

  • ProPILOT Assist is now standard on all trims

  • All three versions see a price increase

Infiniti today revealed changes to the QX55 for the 2023 model year, the most significant of which is the addition of the ProPILOT driver assistance unit to the base model.

The coupe-like compact SUV was launched last year as a replacement for the more conventional QX50, so the 2023 version was expected to remain untouched.

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

The main news in this update, however, is the increased availability of many active security systems. Indeed, the ProPILOT suite of driver assistance technology is now standard on all models, whereas it wasn’t available on the entry-level QX55 Luxe last year.

This means that every QX55 will benefit from adaptive cruise control and center lane assist, which can take control of the car on highways and heavy traffic.

Additionally, the QX55 now features Blind Spot Intervention, which prevents collisions with vehicles in the blind spot by using the steering wheel to steer the vehicle back into its lane if it is swerving without a turn signal in use.

A traffic sign recognition system and adaptive headlights are also available on more SUV versions this year.

Since the changes involve technology and minor cosmetic modifications, the 2023 Infiniti QX55 will continue to be powered by a 2.0L VC-Turbo engine that has variable compression to be more powerful and more efficient, depending on the driver’s needs and road conditions. .

As for pricing in Canada, the entry-level QX55 Luxe sees its starting price increase by $2,700 and is now $54,895. The Essential Edition rises $1,700 to $58,895 and the top Sensory Edition jumps $1,200 to a new price of $62,395.

According to Infiniti, the 2023 version of the QX55 is expected to arrive at Canadian dealerships later in the summer of 2022.
