2017 Infiniti QX70 Limited Changes, Exterior
The most dominating external feature is the new front grille. Although it comes with the same shape as that of the QX70, this time, it does not feature the chrome painted horizontal louvers. As an alternative, the grille on the 2017 model QX70 Limited is supported by black honeycomb net with the Infiniti badge, floating in the middle. This is a design, which will make its way to the remaining models of the QX70 lineup for the model year 2017.
Down underneath, the front part has been redesigned, as well. The round mist lamps have been nixed in support of the horizontally shaped LED mist lights. It comes with a silver-painted finished lower trim insert, with two upright fins, linking the insert to the upper part of the front fascia.
When moving to sides, the vents on the front fenders are now tinted in the identical color as the body. The side view mirrors have assumed a darker look that complements the cladding, which runs down the bottom of the new vehicle.
At the back, the taillights assume a slight tint, which really looks immense with the gray external finish.
All other rear elements remain unchanged, except that the back fascia now features a stainless steel guard, and there is a Limited emblem on the back hatch.
The 2017 Infiniti QX70 Limited will be offered with a set of multi-spoke, painted aluminum-alloy wheels with the diameter of 21 inches, wearing the 265/45-sized all-season tires in the front and at the back.
