Infiniti Reveals Rear Quarter of 2022 QX55
It was on January 1, 2003, that Infiniti introduced a vehicle that it said was based on the theme of a “Bionic Cheetah.” Yes, that is true.
It was the FX45, a crossover that was meant to have characteristics of a sports car and a luxury vehicle, all wrapped up in one.
And now 17+ years later the company is preparing to reveal—on November 11, 2020—the successor to the FX, the QX55.

Information is scant at most. That is, it is a mid-size crossover. It has “the sleek profile of a sports coupe.” It will have “innovative technologies.”
And based on the photo, it has interesting taillamps.
The model year 2022 QX55 is expected to launch in the spring of 2021.
For the first half of 2020 Infiniti sales were off 33.9% compared with 2019, with total sales of 41,653. (By way of comparison, Acura delivered 55,990 during the same period.)
Bionic Cheetah. It’s hard to let that go.
For conducting business in the U.S. market, Toyota has historically had several separate business entities: a sales and distribution company headquartered in California (Toyota Motor Sales, USA); manufacturing operations (Toyota Motor Manufacturing North America); a racing subsidiary (Toyota Racing Development, USA); the Toyota Technical Center for R&D in Ann Arbor; and a design facility in California (Calty Design Research, Inc.). On April 1, 2006, Toyota merged its R&D operations and its manufacturing operations into a single company.
This is the first Yukon AT4, being offered on the new full-size SUV platform. For people looking for features, performance and capability, it is worth the wait
To know that 3,000 cars have been delivered since October 2015 would undoubtedly result in a shrug: in 2017 Toyota delivered 387,081 Camrys, so that 3,000 is less than one percent, and this is in one year, not just over two.
