Last night I had the pleasure of seeing in person the new qx60 autograph at the new car show in Buffalo, NY. The new qx is stunning in person. The styling still carries some of the previous qx (grille, wheels for example) and brings in some modern styling in the belt line areas. The roof rails are very low in the roof. Wheels fit in the wheel wells nicely, no more wierd offset under the fender. The interior is fantastic. Captains chairs in 2nd row with a removable console..... love love love. The drivers area resembles a little bit more of a cockpit. Massaging seats, for the driver and passenger. Controls on dash, media screen all angled for the driver to have optimal use. The media center has Android auto and Apple car play. The roof finally has a panoramic glass. The cvt transmission has been replaced with a 9 speed unit. All the driver assists are there, lane keep, adaptive cruise, blindspot. And they finally added enough features and styling cues to really separate it from the pathfinder. Really impressive unit, I was thrilled it was there. And the price point....65k fully loaded. Great job infiniti. The only drawback.... they parked it next to a gorgeous black metallic qx55, which are near impossible to get and were produced on a limited production.

Got pictures? I love the added features of the new gen especially the 9 speed. I have heard the 3rd row is more cramp. For me I like the looks of the 2016-2021 better.
The 9 speed makes me feel like I want to trade in for it.

What was the color of the exterior you saw at the car show?

A friend of mine has the smart rear view mirror in her car...she loves it. She said it gives her a much wider view! I also have read on forums that other people talked about the need for their focus/eyes to adjust to the smart rear view mirror...but they eventually got used to it!

Have you had a chance to try lane keeping assist? Does it really keep you centered in the lane? My current car (Lincoln) bounces from one side to the other, instead of centering.

There is lane keeping assistance and lane centering assist. Two different systems that are often confused.

Lane keeping assistance keeps you from crossing the center line, or from running off the road. Most Lane Keeping assist systems use differential braking to veer the car back to the center. My 2014 QX60 has this system. It is useful on long interstate drives when you find yourself getting velocitized. It is not the same as Lane Centering Assist (auto steering/auto pilot), you still have steer with a lane keeping assist system. If you use lane keeping assist as an auto pilot, it will jerk from one side of the road to the other using differential braking (brakes are automatically applied to one side of the car to veer the vehicle back in that direction). This not what it's designed for, and in addition to making your passengers sick it will prematurely wear out your brakes if you try and use it for auto steering.

Lane centering assist, or auto steering, uses two stereo cameras (for depth perception) and the power steering system to actually steer the car and keep it centered in the lane, even around curves. My wife's car has this system. When I'm using it, it feels like the car is pulling left or right as required to keep it centered in the lane. It also follows the car in front if the lane lines are obscured. These systems will actually steer the car in auto pilot for 15-20 seconds before you have to put your hands back on the wheel. The system will sense when your hands are present on the steering wheel, usually by sensing if you're applying some resistance to the auto steering inputs.

A lot of cars now a days have lane keeping assist, but lane centering is not as common. Make sure you know what system you have.

Thanks for the info. Food for thought and research!

Thanks for posting your pictures. Very nice. I noticed you have aftermarket tires and wheels. Can you tell me what size tires and wheels your running? If they're a different size than OEM, are the rubbing or have other issues? I just drove mine home from the dealer and would love to put a wider tire/wheel on it. Thanks!

Hi - just picked up my 2022 QX60 Autograph (wanted Sensory but the wait was unknown) - very nice looking. Less than 80 miles on the car -- and have an issue that I hope one of you might have some insight. The Front Emergency Braking (FEB) does not work - the car doesn't show any errors - just doesn't work. The blind spot and lane departure work. The backup braking works. The car does brake when using cruise control - just not in standard driving mode. I have contacted the dealership - no clue - and went to another dealer and test drove with a service manager - no clue either. (the car is so new so I can't really blame them). I haven't had the car hooked up for diagnostics yet - just wondering if I got a 'bad' one? Anyone else have this issue? (I had a JX35 for 9+ years). Anyone want to buy a Moonlight Blue/Black Autograph! 😞

I have the same vehicle. Same color too. I picked it up Wednesday. When pulling into my garage I get an audible alarm as it gets very close to the wall in front of the vehicle, but I don't have the confidence to test if it stops before hitting the wall. How are you testing it?

I haven't tested the parking part per se - but have tried getting close to the wall and it did not stop. The service tech tested the reverse and the car stopped before hitting a fence. What I am testing is driving on the road - anywhere from 10-30 MPH approaching a moving car from behind (I know it sounds crazy) - but based on experience with JX35 the car would automatically apply the brake to slow/stop the car from hitting the car in front. Yes, a risky way to test the FEB. Take a look at infiniti video:
(Thank you for adding to this conversation)

I just reviewed the Owners Manual on the FEB functionality. I don't think I've ever seen so many limiting conditions on a feature like this. I guess I'll hope it works if I need it, but like the air bags, hopefully I'll never use it. However, you've got me intrigued. I'll repost if I figure out how to test it, or if it activates in a real world scenario.

Thanks - much appreciate - as there aren't many out there to inquire against - it should be pretty obvious when it works based on past experience - even if you are slowly approaching a car in front of you - but hopefully, as you said, you won't have the need. I'll update as I learn more as well.

… Front Emergency Braking (FEB) does not work…
A few thoughts…

You have an amazing car and I’m jealous. We have an old M35 that we’re looking to trade in when the 23’s come out (hopefully in a few months).

FEB is emergency-based so you really need to be in that type of situation before it engages. Comparing against previous gen is a bad example since the old ones are overly sensitive, engaging way too early. To test you need to barrel towards a brick wall/stopped car. What did you do to test FEB?

Your dealership feedback is concerning. Their mechanics attend a ton of training in order to deal with every conceivable problem on the 22’s. When the mechanics are stumped, they have an Infiniti hotline where super-special mechanics fly out to assist/fix. If you really have a problem, they need to fix it and not blow you off. Don’t let them off easy by saying it’s a new vehicle.
