2018 Acura MDX vs. 2017 Infiniti QX60

Infiniti changed the naming structure for its vehicles in 2013 to align them throughout the expanding global market they are
pursuing. The Infiniti QX60 (formerly the JX35) was all new for 2013. It comes standard with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a
Continuously Variable Transmission. It comes with the choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The QX60 comes in one trim
level with a number of option packages that add various features.
While the QX60 does feature some innovative technologies, they are part of expensive option packages that can add significantly
to the price of the vehicle. The MDX comes with a combination of standard AcuraWatch driver-assist features unavailable on the
QX60, as well as an available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system.
