In addition to standard wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility (new for 2022), each Q60 is also equipped with a high-resolution Infiniti InTouch dual touchscreen display and Infiniti InTouch Services. The system also includes two illuminated USB connections - one Type-A and one Type-C - to support USB-based Android Auto infotainment.

The 2022 Q60 features a striking, dynamic silhouette and is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine in two output versions. Infiniti offers it in three grades: PURE, LUXE, and RED SPORT 400. All these grades will be available from this fall. For the lower spec ones, the V6 powerplant produces 300 healthy ponies at 6,400 rpm, and it's paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode.

Downshift Rev Matching powers the 2022 Infiniti Q60 PURE and Q60 LUXE grades, and the engine produces 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque across nearly the entire rev range.

The 2022 Q60 is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms for $41,750 MSRP later this month, and other markets will follow later.

The Q60 RED SPORT 400 uses a twin-turbo setup to get 400 maximum horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque. In addition, Infiniti installed an all-wheel-drive system that is able to send up o 50% of the torque to the front wheels for enhanced road-holding or all-weather grip. As conditions dictate, the system drives the rear wheels with 100% of the engine's available power.

Semi-aniline leather-trimmed seats are standard on Q60 LUXE and Q60 RED SPORT 400 grades. The latter offers Gallery White leather with Red and Gray stitching, Graphite leather with Red, or the dynamic Monaco Red with Black accents and stitching.

As for the exterior, the 2022 Q60's color palette includes Pure White, Black Obsidian, Graphite Shadow, Midnight Black, Majestic White, Grand Blue, Slate Gray, and Dynamic Sunstone Red.

A 13-speaker Bose Performance Series sound system with Bose Centerpoint surround-signal processing is standard on the LUXE and RED SPORT 400 trim levels.

The Q60 PURE starts at $41,750 MSRP and includes 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic temperature control, brushed aluminum interior trim accents, leatherette-appointed seats, Infiniti InTouch dual touchscreens for infotainment, and the wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The Q60 LUXE grade includes the Bose Performance Series sound, Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control with Full-Speed Range, heated front seats and steering wheel, and leather-wrapped seats for $50,300 MSRP.

The 2022 Q60 RED SPORT 400 starts at $58,200 MSRP and includes 20-inch aluminum-alloy sport wheels, Digital Dynamic Suspension, fast ratio electronic power steering, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and an Advanced Climate Control system.
