The 2021 INFINITI QX50 crossover SUV combines sporty performance with modern luxury. Under the hood, this compact model has one of the industry’s most advanced turbocharged engines. The 2021 Lexus RX350 crossover SUV also has cutting-edge mechanical technologies for sporty handling. Both five-seat models offer an AWD system and several custom driving modes.


The 2021 INFINITI QX50 extracts 268 net horsepower from a 2.0 L engine. Adopting the world’s first production-scale Variable Compression Turbo design, the four-cylinder powertrain unleashes 280 pound-feet of peak torque at a tachometer reading of at least 1,600 RPM. Using normal aspiration, the 2021 Lexus RX350’s 3.5 V6 engine peaks at only 268 lb-ft of torque. Despite its much larger displacement, this six-cylinder powertrain simply doesn’t match the stunning capability of the small VC-Turbo engine. Augmented by the all-new Active Torque Rod, the turbo engine operates quietly at various RPMs. The 2021 INFINITI QX50 online test drive also covers information on the Direct Adaptive Steering, which monitors the steering system up to 1,000 times each second. This all-new technology works smoothly with a continuously variable transmission system. As expected, the standard CVT generates a wider range of gear ratios than the 2021 RX350’s eight-speed automatic transmission system. However, you could add the Dynamic Torque Control All-Wheel Drive to this premium Lexus crossover SUV. Similarly, you could request to take an online test drive in the QX50 model that rolls on the patented Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. The INFINITI of Gwinnett dealership will demonstrate how to use the highly responsive Drive Mode Selector in the cockpit. Some options at your fingertips include the Eco, Sport and Personal modes. The Sport+, Eco and several other modes are included in the RX350’s Drive Mode Select. Additionally, this versatile Lexus crossover SUV maintains good balance on curved roads thanks to the Active Cornering Assist.

Featuring an LCD/VGA interface, the upper 8.0-inch touch screen focuses on the most important applications and services. You can also glance at the 7.0-inch lower monitor for other information. The 2021 Lexus RX350 only has a single touch screen, which measures 12.3 inches wide. A pinch-to-zoom function makes it easy to browse the Lexus Enform suite.
