2015 Infiniti QX50 chassis, body & exterior redesign:
2015 Ininiti QX50 redesign is not a major change in terms of body frame. You could expect updated grille, bumpers, headlamp detailing in terms of LED inserts, tail lamps and alloy wheels. You could see some chrome treatment changes like running board highlights etc. Although the model has a wide color selection, there could be addition and deletion, along with variation in the current color finish. Overall you may see the same changes that are present in the new Infiniti QX80. The journey version will include a sun/moon roof as standard like now. The 18 and 19 inches wheels look decent, and with more designs, should look better still. Then you have the Automatic on/off headlights, aluminum roof rails, UV solar glass, ORVMs with reverse tilt-down feature & SS front door sill plates.

2015 Infiniti QX50 release date & Price
It is not offical about the release of 2015 Infiniti qx50 from Nissan, we expect that Q3 would be the time one can expect this model to be launched. If you do not want to wait, there is not much you would miss if you buy the current version apart from some cosmetic changes that we just talked about. The price is expected to hover in range of US $35,000 – 39,000. There are lot of options for the customer in this price bracket, you could read about details on new ford escape, the Honda Pilot, or you could think about the new Chevrolet equinox. Then there are many more you could be thinking about. But if Infiniti is on your mind, then this car may be the one for you.
