Infiniti unveils 2018 QX50 with world-first engine technology

LA Auto Show 2017: Infiniti QX50's revolutionary new VC Turbo engine

The ability to allow the VC Turbo to choose its own compression ratio makes this power plant an "engine engineer's dream", said Shinichi Kiga, Nissan's chief power train engineer. It can combine the turbocharged gasoline engine with torque and efficiency of a four cylinder diesel engine. Through the use of a complex linkage for its pistons, a computer is able to change the engine's compression ratio on the fly from 8:1 to 14:1 to optimize its performance and efficiency as needed.

Externally the new design lines are visually appealing especially with the new bold front end that includes a clamshell hood but still manages to reflect Infiniti's distinctive Powerful Elegance design language.

The technology used in the VC-Turbo engine allows the compression ratio to vary automatically from 8 to 1 for performance to 14 to 1 for economy and although official figures for the QX50 are still to be homologated under the new European test cycle, it is likely the auto will average more than 30mpg.

"This uncommonly smooth engine offers customers power and performance, as well as efficiency and economy".

There's no denying that the USA is crossover-crazy, and Infiniti wants a piece of the luxury action with this, the 2019 Infiniti QX50.

The VC-Turbo engine is meant to phase out Infiniti's old-fashioned 3.5-litre V6 petrol, which offers similar performance but with much greater weight and fuel consumption.

Malcolm Jenkins to no longer protest after National Football League pledge
He told ESPN that he speaks with Kaepernick every day and may just join forces with Kaepernick's nonprofit instead. Ultimately, Reid and Thomas walked away from the Players Coalition, angering NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell .

For the first time on any Infiniti vehicle, Nissan's ProPilot semi-autonomous driver assistance systems will be offered. Propilot takes control of the accelerator, brakes and steering to keep the vehicle in a single lane moving with the flow of traffic. Think of the ProPilot system as an enhanced cruise control. Should traffic slow, the system will automatically reduce the QX50's speed to keep you from crowding cars in front of you.

The all-new platform is made up of SHF (Super High Formability) high-tensile steel that has helped increase the torsional rigidity by 23 per cent.

"The 2019 QX50 is the most important vehicle we have ever launched, and it embodies everything the brand stands for: attractive design, advanced technology and empowering performance".

Infiniti is adding to its already substantial SUV line with the QX50, a luxury midsize crossover laden with new technology.

The seats are wrapped in premium leather and the interior looks smart and refined.
