It’s official: the 2016 Infiniti QX50 will make its debut at next week’s New York Auto Show.

MotorAuthority reports the updated crossover will takes its cues from the Chinese-market QX50 Long-Wheelbase like the one in the image above. This means a longer wheelbase for additional rear legroom and cabin space. The updated model will also have a slightly higher stance than the current model.

Potential power for the QX50 points to the same 3.7-liter V6 found solely in the crossover now, rated at 325 horsepower. Price of admission is expected to be around $35,995, the base sticker price for the 2015 edition.

    Okay, they improved on the obvious clown shoe design of its predecessor--a bit--, and at least it doesn't look like a beluga like its big brother..but there's still one more thing they didn't get right. Real people with real feet need to get into the back seat of these vehicles once in awhile. And they still will have a fight due to the skimpy distance between the B-pillar and the rear wheel arch. Same for the Touraeg. Does any of their designers actually try to climb into the back seat? They ought to try it once in awhile.

      "Same for the Touareg..." Say what? Did you mean Tiguan? The Touareg has tons of back seat room.

    Apart from being slightly stretched, how is this significantly different than the current QX50? Looks like a basic refresh to me...

    How the hell does a 2016 model manage to look like it was designed for 2009?!

    I just showed that picture to my 6 year old daughter. Her exact words were: "Ewww, it's yucky." From the mouths of babes...
