2024 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD Review - Plush and Pleasant

If you are looking for a comfortable premium three-row SUV, Infiniti’s QX60 is well worth considering. 

Three-row SUVs are an important segment in the auto industry. 3-Row SUVs serve as family vehicles and also act as vacation, utility, and work vehicles. Many shoppers want a bit more of a premium experience than the mainstream offers. Which is where Inifniti fits in.

The QX60 is a three-row SUV in the midsized segment. This is the segment in which the Nissan Pathfinder, Honda Pilot, Acura MDX, Toyota Highlander and Grand Highlander, Hyundai Palisade, and many other vehicles compete. The Infiniti brand is a premium brand, so some extras are expected.

2004 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD - How Much Does It Cost?
The QX60 we tested had a consumer cost of $69,240 including the Destination Charge, but excluding dealer doc fees. Our media tester had about $3k in options packages. 

2004 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD - What Powers It?
The QX60 Autograph is powered by a V6 gas engine mated to a geared transmission with all-wheel drive. 

2004 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD - How Does It Drive?
The QX60 is a smooth operator. It has ample power for all situations, and we’d say the powertrain is quieter, smoother, and more responsive than most. The ride is soft and smooth overall normal paved surfaces, and potholes are sucked up without any drama. Handling is quite nice for a large 3-row SUV. 

Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are included, but they are wired. We had some dropped connections, and the vehicle was very picky about what cable would work. Even with a new cable, it had trouble staying connected to our Samsung Galaxy S24. 

2004 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD - What Makes It Special?
The interior of the QX60 features pleated seating surfaces, with heated and ventilated seats up front. Its simple-to-use infotainment setup is easier to operate than most premium vehicles. The QX60 Autograph comes ready to haul a 6,000-pound trailer. 

Conclusion - 2004 Infiniti QX Autograph AWD
The QX60 Autograph AWD is a traditionally powered three-row SUV with a healthy dose of smoothness and an interior that is a bit fancier than the mainstream brands offer. Those looking for a step up in luxury from what the Nissan Pathfinder offers will be pleased with the Infiniti QX60.
