Went on my first road trip in this car today. Initial reaction is very good.

Drove up from Boulder to Vail for a few days of skiing. Had the personal assistant send my the link to my destination. Pretty seamless, though I haven't figured out how to send the Google link to the car as of yet.

Power over two mountain passes was surprisingly good. More than enough and better than the Lexus RX it replaced. The CVT, even in Sport, is decidedly weird. But it is fine. Sharp curves felt top heavy and a little funky. But not overly so. This is not a driver's car per se, but it drives more than well enough. For the family camping/skiing/road trip car, I am very pleased with our choice.

Snow hit the passes hard for my drive (See attached photos). Trucks were chaining up on a mandatory basis. Cars from out of state littered the highway. The QX moved through with ease. It if a perfectly adequate snow car.

Very happy with the car.

I have about 2500 miles on my QX60 now and I agree with all of your assessment. Not meant to be a drivers car but feels very refined to drive. At least for me, I can tell I'm driving an expensive car (maybe moreso because I know how much I paid for it :D)

It's good to hear the QX60 is meeting your expectations!

I've similar observations from 2 trips up to Lake Tahoe via US50 - although I did use the manual shift option to pass multiple slow trucks going uphill - more then adequate passing power.
thats always good to know, it is an infiniti after all, it's supposed to be sport and in this case versatile. At least they have seem to hit all the needed areas

I think it looks really nice.

The tan interior is certainly holding up fine - after only 300 or so miles. :)

I'm sure it will get dirty along the way, but it will also clean up again.

We've had too many black interior cars and wanted something different.

Word from a fellow interior guy: it does tend to show dirt too soon but hey, it is an excuse to spoil her with leather so rays and nourishing lotions. As a detail nut, I am having a ball!
Cheers!

Curious if you had put snow tires on. I am coming out of a full fledge truck based SUV and my recent snow covered road trip in Vermont did not feel as sure footed. Never had snows on the SUV but guess the more aggressive tires made the difference. Otherwise the QX60 is comfortable and handles far better than a truck based SUV.

Yes, white would have been great camo in the snow! ;)

Tires are the all seasons with which the vehcile is specified. I run winter wheels and snows on my other car, but with AWD the all seasons are more than adequate here in Colorado.
