To create an SUV that can adapt to the demands of a career, family life, and recreation, INFINITI called upon a team of skilled female designers and engineers to bring the 2022 QX60 to life. To document their hard work and talent, INFINITI created a four-part short film series, “The Voices of QX60: Meet the Women Who Powered the All-New QX60.”
In this series, the leading ladies of the QX60 design team discuss how their personal experiences helped them create the sophisticated luxury SUV. INFINITI Color Designer Sayuri Nakashima drew upon her Japanese heritage to craft the QX60’s Zen-like interior design and serene color choices. When working on creating a vehicle that’s suited to both a career and family life, Trisha Jung considered her busy lifestyle as the Director for Pricing and Incentives and Model Line Management.
Durability Test Engineer Heather Kniep utilized her passion for cars and her expert engineering skills to refine the QX60’s new all-wheel-drive technology. Senior Design Manager Michelle Christensen led the project by finding inspiration in the innovative QX60 Monograph concept.
Now that winter has passed and spring is upon us, it is a great time to check up on your INFINITI. Here are some spring service tips to consider as you schedule routine maintenance for your vehicle.
Do a walk-around
The first thing to do is check the external components of your vehicle, including the tires, wiper blades, headlights, and brake lights. If anything looks damaged, have that item repaired or replaced.
Your INFINITI needs a variety of fluids to work properly. An oil change will clean up the engine parts and ensure that your vehicle is running efficiently. You can also bring your car to our team at INFINITI Downtown to check the wiper fluid and brake fluid.
With slippery roads causing us to brake quicker and more often, now is a good time to check on the brake pads. If you notice that it’s harder to stop or if you hear a squeaking sound, it might be time to replace the brake pads.
Give it a wash
Get rid of all of that winter grime by taking your INFINITI through a car wash. Be sure to choose an option with an underbody wash to remove all of the salt from the roadways.
For any service needs for your vehicle, contact our team or visit us at INFINITI Downtown in Toronto, Ontario.
Even as luxurious and advanced as the QX50 is, INFINITI was able to find ways to improve upon the luxury SUV with new standard features. From advanced technology updates to more premium materials from front to back, it doesn’t get much better than the 2022 INFINITI QX50.
For 2022, the QX50 is equipped with an exciting suite of features. To start, all models now come with wireless Apple CarPlay® compatibility and ProPILOT™ Assist technology.
