2019 INFINITI QX50 VC Turbo Technology of the Year Award

September 27th, 2019 by

Every fall, Autoblog determines which new models within the last year have had the most interesting and powerful automotive technology. The 2019 INFINITI QX50 with variable compression turbo was honored as one of the three finalists for Autoblog’s 2019 Technology of the Year Award.

INFINITI’s 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four can change its compression ratio extremely quickly. Normally, turbocharged engines are better than the naturally-aspirated engines when the car is on boost however, they can perform worse at lower revs. The VC Turbo allows compression to increase at low revs and decrease once the turbo increases.

However, the VC Turbo isn’t the only amazing thing about the QX50. The 2019 INFINITI QX50 was designed with a bigger cabin and can hold up to 65.1 cubic feet of cargo space. The QX50 has a motion activated liftgate function that helps make loading and unloading high amounts of cargo much easier than ever before. You no longer have to put your belongings down in order to open the trunk.  As long as your key fob is within three feet of the liftgate, all you need to do is swing your foot forward underneath the center of the rear bumper. Before you know it, your trunk will open and you can continue packing your trunk at ease.

The 2019 INFINITI QX50 also has high fuel economy ratings. It earns 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, ultimately helping you save money compared to other SUV’s.
