2022 INFINITI QX55 vs 2022 Toyota Highlander

A luxurious, yet versatile crossover coupe, the 2022 INFINITI QX55 is the reintroduction of a classic INFINITI body style. Competing favorably with the rest of the crossover SUV market, the QX55 is made for Denver Metro drivers who want to stand out. Equipped with premium features inside and sporting the benefit of AWD handling on all models, the INFINITI is made for everyday Colorado driving needs. Compared to well-known options such as the 2022 Toyota Highlander, customers will notice the superior quality of the QX55 is showcased above anything else.  


Equipped with a VC-Turbo 2.0L four-cylinder engine, every 2022 INFINITI QX55 delivers the same dependable performance that will satisfy anyone who gets behind the wheel. All 268 horsepower the engine generates is funneled through the responsive Continuously Variable Transmission to give the crossover coupe a seamless ride. Fitting to the needs of the everyday Colorado driving landscape, the QX55 rides on the innovative Intelligent All-Wheel Drive AWD system. Meeting steering inputs with impressive accuracy, drivers are encouraged to meet their adventures with confidence. As for the 2022 Toyota Highlander, the standard 3.5L V6 engine it comes equipped with delivers 295 horsepower. Toyota pairs the engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the QX55, the Highlander is standard FWD and has AWD available.  

Interior Features

Upscale materials and vehicle design are what make the 2022 INFINITI QX55 a superb option for drivers looking to treat themselves and their passengers to an elegant ride. The different leather upholstery options for the seating give the interior of the crossover coupe both an elevated level of comfort and visual appeal. Comparatively, the baseline Toyota Highlander comes with cloth upholstery on its seating. Infotainment packages for both vehicles are fairly similar. Both offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration for compatible smartphones, as well as media outlets such as Bluetooth® Streaming Audio and SiriusXM® radio. Unique to the INFINITI is an innovative set of design features to make the ride even more satisfying for everyone in the vehicle. Active Noise Cancellation and Active Sound Enhancement help keep the sound from outside the vehicle quiet and the sounds passengers want to hear at their peak audio quality.  

Safety Features

With Intelligent AWD being the standard maneuvering platform for the 2022 QX55, the crossover coupe gives drivers access to greater all-weather handling capabilities on all models as opposed to the Toyota. Another standard driver-assistive feature that the INFINITI has over its Toyota counterpart is the inclusion of Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert technology. Customers looking at the Toyota will need to pay more for a higher-end model to get the same features on their Highlander.
