2019 Infiniti Q70L Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The 2019 INFINITI Q70L has much to offer over the standard Q70 performance luxury sedan – specifically a 5.9-inch longer wheelbase, 5.6 inches of additional rear seat legroom (41.8 inches total) and 5.9 inches of extra knee room (32.5 inches total). Along with its first class style and space, the Q70L is designed to provide smooth, luxurious ride comfort for all seating positions.

For the 2019 model year, all Q70L 3.7 LUXE content from the previously complimentary Essential package is now standard. The new standard features include valuable technology such as:

  • INFINITI InTouch Navigation with InTouch Services
  • Bose Premium Audio System with 10-speakers
  • Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection
  • Front and Rear sonar system
  • Leather appointed seats
  • Climate-controlled front seats
  • Heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel

EXTERIOR

Building on the foundation of the standard Q70, the 2019 INFINITI Q70L seamlessly integrates the additional length behind the B-pillars, with the flowing, emotional lines and refined elegance of the vehicle taking on an even more upscale image. And, with the extended length of the Q70L’s rear doors, rear seat ingress and egress is enhanced – especially for taller passengers. Automatic power rear door clinchers are also standard.

The LED headlights make an immediate and indelible first impression. An Adaptive Front Lighting System with auto-leveling headlights is available as part of the ProACTIVE Package. The distinctive headlights accentuate the double arch-grille, which takes on a three-dimensional look due to the elaborate detail of the high-quality waved mesh finish and chrome surround. The same solid feel is echoed in the front bumper with integrated LED fog lights, giving the Q70L a dignified presence on the road.

Other standard exterior features include a power sliding tinted glass moonroof with one-touch open/close, tilt feature and sliding sunshade, power-folding heated outside mirrors with integrated LED turn signals and reverse tilt-down feature, as well as rain-sensing variable intermittent front windshield wipers. Also standard are courtesy lamps built into the outside door handles, rear window defroster with timer, dual exhaust with polished tips and automatic trunk cincher.

The 2019 INFINITI Q70L is available in seven exterior colors: Hagane Blue, Hermosa Blue, Chestnut Bronze, Liquid Platinum, Graphite Shadow, Black Obsidian and Majestic White (with premium pearl finish).

INTERIOR

The 2019 INFINITI Q70L well-appointed and inviting interior combines style with spaciousness. With 110.6 cubic feet of interior room, the Q70L stretches the expectations for comfort in class, including the ability of most rear seat passengers to comfortably cross their legs. Two interior colors are offered – Graphite and Stone.

As with the standard wheelbase Q70, the instrument panel features Fine Vision gauges, gear-like rings on the instrument cluster meters, an 8-inch color vehicle information display and INFINITI analog clock. Leather-appointed, heated 10-way power driver and front passenger’s seats, including 2-way power lumbar support and heated rear seats, are standard – along with a dual occupant memory system for the driver’s seat, steering wheel and outside mirrors, which can be linked to the individual INFINITI Intelligent Keys. Every Q70L also comes with standard heated steering wheel.

In addition, each Intelligent Key remembers the last-used climate control, audio and navigation settings. An entry/exit assist system for the driver’s seat and steering wheel, sequential welcome lighting illuminated entry system and dual-zone automatic temperature also add to the Q70L’s exceptional level of standard premium appointments.

Standard technology equipment includes Active Noise Control, Streaming Audio via Bluetooth, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, HomeLink Universal Transceiver and RearView Monitor. Other interior highlights include power windows with one-touch up/down and auto-reverse feature, power door locks with automatic locking feature, retained accessory power for windows and moonroof, Bose 2-channel premium audio system with 10 speakers and Audio PilotTM 2 Noise Compensation, Radio Data System, USB Connection Port for iPod interface and other compatible devices, steering wheel audio controls and speed-sensitive volume control, rear reading lamps, and a 12V rear power outlet.

Also standard is INFINITI InTouchTM Navigation with 8-inch color touch-screen display, lane guidance and 3-D building graphics, Voice Recognition for navigation functions, including one-shot voice destination entry – along with INFINITI InTouchTM Services with six months of access to safety, security and convenience services.

Other available technology includes Bose Studio Surround premium audio system with 16 speakers, Enhanced Intelligent Key, Intelligent Cruise Control, Distance Control Assist and Front Pre-Crash Seat Belts.

POWERTRAIN

The 2019 INFINITI Q70L is offered with a choice of powerful and efficient 3.7-liter V6 and 5.6-liter V8 engines. Both are equipped with Variable Valve Event & Lift (VVEL), which combines hydraulic-controlled variable valve timing and electronically controlled variable valve lift on the intake side to help improve performance and response.

Throttle response is enhanced by directly controlling the intake valve, rather than using the traditional method of controlling intake with the throttle valve. The VVEL system also offers improved emissions and fuel efficiency (over non-VVEL designs) by substantially reducing the intake resistance that occurs when the engine’s throttle valve opening is narrowed and output is low.

The refined 3.7-liter aluminum-alloy DOHC 24-valve V6 is rated at 330 horsepower @ 7,000 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. It features rigid ladder frame construction, large crank journal and pin diameters, asymmetric piston skirts, twin knock sensors, molybdenum coated lightweight pistons, Iridium spark plugs and a symmetric twin air intake system.

The Q70L’s 5.6-liter Direct Injection Gasoline aluminum-alloy DOHC 32-valve V8 is rated at 416 horsepower and 414 lb-ft of torque. The Direct Injection Gasoline system provides better wide-open throttle performance and improved fuel economy and emissions performance (compared to a non-direct injection system) by reducing engine knock, improving combustion stability and offering more precise injection control.

Both engines are matched to a 7-speed automatic transmission with Adaptive Shift Control and manual shift mode with Downshift Rev Matching, which allows for sportier shifts during spirited driving. The Q70L is offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or INFINITI Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, which uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (0:100 rear biased, or up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road and driving conditions, ensuring sure-footed road holding at all times.

Estimated fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway for the Q70L 3.7 LUXE and 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway for the Q70L 3.7 LUXE AWD. The Q70L 5.6 LUXE is rated at 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway, while the Q70L 5.6 LUXE AWD achieves fuel economy of 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway.

In line with the focus on the driver, the 2019 INFINITI Q70L features technologies that enable individuals to customize the driving feel. The INFINITI Drive Mode Selector allows drivers to select from four driving modes – Standard, Eco, Sport or Snow – and the integrated control system will adjust throttle sensitivity and transmission mapping to help optimize performance. The system also adjusts Active Trace Control and Eco Pedal settings. To encourage eco-driving behavior, the available Eco Pedal provides feedback directly through the accelerator by giving a slight pushback if driving inefficiently.

TRIM LEVELS & PRICING

The 2019 INFINITI Q70L is a four-door, five-passenger midsize luxury sedan offered in two models: 3.7 LUXE and 5.6 LUXE.
