With agility that's remarkable for its size, and a smooth ride over rough and broken surfaces, the QX50 delivers an exceptional driving experience.

The QX50 doesn't handle quite as well as the larger FX37, but the large V-6 makes it quick.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Four models of the 2014 Infiniti QX50 are offered: QX50, QX50 AWD, QX50 Journey, and QX50 Journey AWD.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
Acceleration is swift and steady, the steering has great on-center feel, and the handling response and is remarkable for a vehicle of this size.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
The personality of the QX50 changes a bit as you add all-wheel drive; you'll lose a little of the nimble feel but earn some all-weather tractability-although churning through snow or mud isn't really the point.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)


The transmission is a 7-speed automatic with a manual shift mode and downshift rev-matching capability, so if the driver decides to shift it manually the resulting downshifts will be smooth and almost unnoticed.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
Overall, the engine and transmission work well together, with an eagerness that's uncommon in this kind of vehicle.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
Available 19-inch alloy wheels enhance the QX50's sporty side, as do the dual chrome-tipped exhaust outlets and the rear spoiler.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)


The 2014 Infiniti QX50's 3.7-liter V6 is smooth, quick and responsive, and develops a driver-pleasing 325 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
While those numbers may not seem particularly noteworthy, what is impressive is that the Infiniti QX50 produces considerably more horsepower than its competitors while returning nearly identical fuel-economy figures.3.7-liter V6325 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm267 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpmEPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/25 mpg (RWD), 17/24 mpg (AWD).
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
As traffic slows, the system can automatically reduce vehicle speed – to a complete stop if necessary – and accelerate once traffic begins to move.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)


The QX50 is not the best on overall interior space.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
It's clear that front-seat occupants have been accommodated-for, in luxury, but those in back won't be nearly as content.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The 2014 QX50 is certainly not Infiniti's top-of-the-line SUV, but you wouldn't know it from a glance at the interior.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)


Although the QX50 is a new nameplate, the virtually identical predecessor, the Infiniti EX37, earned some respectable ratings and offered a good set of standard safety features.
by The Car Connection (Mar, 2014)
The proportions are much like a station wagon, yet the standard 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and elevated ride height confirm that the QX50 is indeed an SUV.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)
The 2014 Infiniti QX50 is a particularly eager performer, with a quick-shifting transmission, responsive downshifts, and rather low gearing.
