Spirotours.com – 2025 Infiniti QX65. Infiniti, the prestige division of Nissan, is planning to introduce a new SUV between the QX60 and QX80 models in 2025. The new vehicle, designated the QX65, will be a coupe-like variant of the QX60, with a lower and more dynamic roofline that sacrifices some interior volume for a more stylish appearance. The QX65 will compete with similar-looking luxury SUVs, including the BMW X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe.
2025 Infiniti QX65 Design and Function
The QX65 will share the majority of its design and features with the QX60, which was redesigned in 2022 and updated with additional technology in 2023. The QX60 is built on a new platform that is lighter and more rigid than its predecessor, enhancing the SUV’s ride quality and agility. The QX65 will most likely utilize the same platform, albeit with modifications to accommodate the differing body style.
The QX65’s exterior design will be significantly influenced by the crossover SUV QX55, which is a coupe-like variant of the QX50. The QX55’s front fascia is distinguished by its large grille, slim LED headlamps, and chrome accents. Combining a sloping roofline with a sculpted rear end, the side profile creates a streamlined and athletic silhouette. Additionally, the QX55 has 20-inch alloy rims and dual exhaust tips.
The QX65 will likely utilize a comparable design language, albeit on a larger scale. The QX65 will be longer, wider, and shorter than the QX60, which measures 197.7 inches in length, 77.2 inches in width, and 68.9 inches in height. In addition to a unique grille pattern, taillight design, and bumper shape, the QX65 will have some distinguishing features that set it apart from its brethren.
The interior of the 2025 Infiniti QX65 will be luxurious and capacious, but smaller than that of the QX60. The QX60 has three rows of seats with ample headroom and legroom in all rows to accommodate up to seven passengers. In addition to high-end materials such as semi-aniline leather upholstery, open-pore wood trim, and metal accents, the QX60 features these materials. A 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a head-up display are featured on the dashboard.
The QX65 will most likely have similar interior features to the QX60, with a few modifications to accommodate its coupe-like design. Due to the reduced roofline, the QX65 will only have two rows of seats that can accommodate up to five passengers, with less rear headroom. Additionally, the cargo capacity will be reduced compared to the QX60, which has 41.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 75.4 cubic feet behind the first.

The QX65 will benefit from a number of technological enhancements that Infiniti has implemented for its 2023 models. One of them is the ProPILOT Assist 2.0 system, an advanced driver assistance system capable of semi-autonomous highway travel. The system employs cameras, radars, and GPS to monitor road conditions and regulate the vehicle’s steering, acceleration, and deceleration. The driver can activate the system by pressing a button on the steering wheel while maintaining a secure grip on the wheel.
The wireless charging platform is a technological advancement that allows compatible smartphones to be charged without cables. The pad is located in the central console and can simultaneously charge two devices. Additionally, the device has a cooling fan to prevent overheating.
2025 Infiniti QX65 Engine specifications
A 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 295 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque will propel the QX65. This powerplant is shared by the QX60 and a number of other Nissan and Infiniti vehicles. Direct injection, variable valve timing, and an electronic throttle control system optimize the engine’s performance and efficiency.
The QX65 will also be available with a hybrid drivetrain that combines a V6 engine with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery cell. The hybrid system will offer greater power and torque than the conventional engine, along with improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. The hybrid system will be comparable to the one used in the QX60 Hybrid’s previous iteration, which was discontinued after 2017.
The previous iteration of the QX60’s continuously variable transmission (CVT) will be replaced by a nine-speed automatic transmission in the QX65. The new transmission will provide more driving modes and paddle shifters for manual control, as well as more responsive shifts and gentler shifts than the CVT. In order to save fuel, the transmission will include a start-stop system that will cut off the engine when the vehicle is stopped.
The QX65 will come standard with a front-wheel drive system that sends power exclusively to the front axles. The QX65 will also be available with an all-wheel drive system that will distribute power to all four wheels as required to improve traction and stability on varying road surfaces. The torque vectoring feature of the all-wheel drive system will adjust the amount of torque sent to each wheel to enhance cornering performance.
The QX65 will have respectable fuel economy for its class, but not as excellent as its competitors. The EPA has rated the QX60’s fuel economy at 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the interstate for front-wheel-drive models; all-wheel drive decreases these ratings by 1 mpg in each case. As the QX65 will utilize the same powertrain as the QX60, it will likely have comparable ratings.
The hybrid option will substantially improve the QX65’s fuel economy, as it did with the QX60 Hybrid. The QX60 Hybrid had city and highway ratings of 25 and 27 mpg for both front- and all-wheel-drive models. Depending on how much the hybrid system has been improved since 2017, the QX65 Hybrid will most likely have similar or slightly higher ratings.
Pricing and Availability
A report claims Infiniti dealers were promised a new two-row SUV based on the QX60’s platform by 2025. Infiniti has not confirmed this information, nor has it provided official pricing and availability information for the QX65.
However, based on the pricing of the 2025 Infiniti QX65 and its competitors, we can estimate that the QX65 will range in price from approximately $50,000 for the base model with front-wheel drive to approximately $60,000 for the premium model with all-wheel drive and all available options. The hybrid option will presumably increase the price by $5,000 to $10,000.
2025 Infiniti QX65 Trim levels and packages
The QX65 will likely have the same trim levels and options as the QX60, which offers four trims: Pure, Luxe, Sensory, and Autograph. LED headlights, leatherette seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and ignition, power-adjustable front seats, a power liftgate, a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a six-speaker sound system, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departu

The Autograph trim adds quilted semi-aniline leather seats, open-pore wood trim, metal accents, second-row captain’s chairs with a detachable center console, a rear entertainment system with dual 8-inch screens and wireless headphones, and a smart rearview mirror that can switch between a standard mirror and a camera view.
Additionally, the QX65 will offer optional bundles that will add additional features to the lower trims. For instance, the Premium upgrade will equip the Pure trim with a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a 13-speaker Bose sound system.
