QX60 AWD question

Hello all,

Question about the AWD option for the QX60.. Since most of the non AWD version are FWD, does anyone know if the motor is still turned the same in the AWD version? I'm just not a fan of FWD vehicles and from what I can tell, the QX60 runs in FWD mode if AWD isn't used.

THank you!

You are correct, the AWD is not all-time AWD. The computer determines what power is needed where and during use where AWD is not needed, your AWD will be a FWD.

QX60 AWD question

Everything I’m reading about Infiniti’s intelligent AWD system will send the power to the rear wheels 100% when not needed and divert up to 50% to the front when needed.

From Infiniti....

" In AWD QX60 models, the system prioritizes drive to the front wheels until it senses wheel slip or other traction problems--when it can shift up to half the torque to the rear wheels. "

Newer models are different, but for 2014 this is it... Not sure when they updated the AWD system between 2014-2019

Not sure, even the 2013 Infiniti JX35 overview says power will be diverted to the front wheels when needed. So they are saying that it is RWD when not in use.


"This system will divert up to 50% of the available power to the front wheels to enhance traction."

Current info on AWD, including the QX60:

Meh, this is what my literature says about my model...

"QX60 vehicles equipped with Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system can intuitively adjust handling and power delivery in adverse weather conditions. By constantly monitoring wheelspin, throttle position, and vehicle speed, the system can automatically divert up to 50% of the available power to the rear wheels, enhancing traction and control when conditions are less than optimal. When all-wheel drive is not needed, 100% of the power is channeled to the front to improve fuel economy allowing the vehicle to be driven in conditions better suited for front-wheel drive."

QX60 AWD is 100% FWD until wheel spin is detected.



"Intelligent AWD helps give you control by adjusting handling and power in most conditions. It monitors wheel spin, throttle position and speed, and diverts up to 50% of the available power to the rear wheels when conditions are less than optimal. When All-Wheel Drive isn’t needed, 100% of the power is channeled to the front wheels."
