Infiniti is to reveal its QX50 Concept SUV at the Detroit Motor Show this month.
The vehicle will preview the brand’s roll-out of its autonomous drive support technologies.The systems will help navigating stop-start traffic or keeping track of the positions of surrounding vehicles.
INFINITI will also exhibit its ground-breaking new VC-Turbo (Variable Compression Turbo) engine technology in Detroit. The VC-Turbo engine is the world’s first production-ready variable compression ratio engine. VC-Turbo technology combines the power of a high-performance 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine.
With a development target power output of approximately 200 kW (272 ps) and 390 Nm torque, the VC-Turbo engine will be comparable to V6 powertrains for performance, while significantly outperforming them in efficiency. Engineers are targeting a 27% improvement in fuel efficiency over engines of similar power output.
