Mississauga, Ont. – Supporting the driver has been part of INFINITI’s mission since the beginning. It shouldn’t be a surprise then that the newest INFINITI offers intuitive tech features that do just that.
INFINITI announces its newest crossover, the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60, which is expected to arrive in Canada before the end of this year, will be the first model in the automaker’s lineup to feature the latest iteration of its innovative ProPILOT Assist system. The updated technology delivers smoother driver-support features and offers enhanced features that seamlessly connect to the vehicle’s navigation system to support the driver proactively in situations such as highway off-ramps.
“Our commitment to supporting drivers at INFINITI has never wavered,” said INFINITI’s General Manager, Product Strategy and Planning Eric Rigaux. “With the all-new QX60 and its ProPILOT Assist enhanced by navigation, we’re working to keep that tradition alive. Whether on a long haul for the weekend or a long highway commute on the way home at the end of the day, we’re proud to offer systems that intuitively back the driver.”
The latest ProPILOT Assist system combines information gathered from the QX60’s array of sensors and cameras with navigation information to assist its driver better. The data analyzed from the navigation system could include upcoming curves that require the QX60 to slow or exiting on an off-ramp. An extended automatic restart system now supports stopping for up to 30 seconds in stop-and-go traffic situations.
Since its introduction on the 2019 INFINITI QX50, ProPILOT Assist has been further refined to more smoothly assist drivers. In the all-new 2022 QX60, the system can proactively brake sooner and more softly, and its steering assistance is more natural. The three-row crossover can better maintain speeds on a downhill grade as well using the advanced Intelligent Cruise Control system.
When ProPILOT Assist is engaged and customized to follow posted speeds, information gathered from the onboard system can help the driver quickly match speeds in changing speed-limit zones. When entering a new speed-limit zone, the system can prompt the driver to accept a change in set speed to match, or the system can automatically change set speeds.
More information about the all-new 2022 INFINITI QX60 will be released closer to market launch later this year. Stay tuned.
