Which INFINITI Models Have AWD?

All-Wheel Drive (AWD) allows cars to deliver power to both the front and rear wheels, adjusting according to varying road conditions to provide better performance in rain, snow, and on gravel and other unpaved surfaces.

Wondering if you can get an INFINITI with AWD? Let’s take a look at the basics of how INFINITI AWD works, and which INFINITI models offer AWD as an option.

How INFINITI AWD Works to Enhance Power & Performance

The INFINITI Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system uses a powerful computer and advanced sensors to constantly monitor wheelspin, throttle position, and vehicle speed as you drive.

Then, it instantly adapts to changing on-road conditions – diverting up to 50% of all available power to the front wheels when additional grip, traction, and control are required for an optimal driving experience.

Not only that, but it automatically sends 100% of all vehicle power to the rear wheels for maximum performance whenever AWD capabilities are not necessary, enhancing performance and responsiveness when road conditions are good.

Which INFINITI Models Have AWD?

All new INFINITI models are available with INFINITI AWD. This means that INFINITI Intelligent AWD is available on the following models:


In addition, the INFINITI QX80 is available with All-Mode 4WD®, an even more advanced AWD system designed specifically for off-roading, rough roads, and difficult weather conditions.

And, as if the news couldn’t get any better, the all-new 2022 QX55 crossover, which uses the same VC-Turbo engine and CVT transmission as the QX50, also has INFINITI AWD capabilities offering highly competitive performance figures.

INFINITI In the Snow

INFINITI Snow ModeAs your local Denver INFINITI dealership, we know that Colorado is no stranger to snowy and icy conditions. But with the advanced, modern features of the INFINITI lineup, you can stay safe in winter weather conditions. Learn more below or contact INFINITI OF DENVER now to explore our advanced luxury vehicles online or in person.


Many of our INFINITI models, like the 2021 INFINITI Q50 and the 2020 INFINITI QX60, are equipped with drive mode personalization options that allow you to optimize your drive according to the environmental conditions and driving preferences. The customizable selections elevate vehicle performance with adjustments to engine and transmission outputs, efficiency ratios, and steering ratios and force settings.

Among these selections is INFINITI’s unparalleled Snow Mode. When you utilize this option in snowy conditions, the assistive technology modifies your engine output to reduce wheel spin on slippery roads, modifying the throttle to cater to the wintery conditions for smoother performance and enhanced safety. In this mode, your INFINITI will be more responsive in the snow, and will have a less aggressive throttle profile.

In addition, INFINITI’s Snow Mode contributes to the AWD on your vehicle by closely monitoring wheel spin sensors and adjusting power delivery to improve handling.


All-Wheel Drive

Even without the Snow Mode, INFINITI AWD uses adaptive sensors and algorithms to optimize power delivery to the wheels, sending up to 50% of the front wheels when conditions are less-than-optimal. This is done automatically, and when conditions are optimal, 100% of power is automatically sent to the rear wheels to enhance on-road performance.

Pair the efficient All Wheel Drive settings with winter tires from INFINITI OF DENVER and our aggressive braking profile, and your vehicle will offer better overall snow handling with enhance traction and on-road performance.


INFINITI Vehicle Safety Standards

INFINITI’s Predictive Forward Collision Warning system monitors the velocity of your car, as well as the distance of the vehicles that are directly ahead of you. Predictive Forward Collision Warning technology sends both audio and visual alerts to the driver when a sudden movement or change is detected, ensuring you can respond quickly to any on-road dangers in inclement weather.

Not only that, but Forward Emergency Braking works in concert with Predictive Forward Collision Warning from INFINITI to automatically brake if you do not respond to alerts quickly.

Plus, winter weather won’t impede your visibility as your INFINITI navigates easily in the snow with High Beam Assist headlight technology and an INFINITI World's First Technology, the available Around View® Monitor system.

Safe Spring Driving Tips

Spring driving time is here!

Denver Spring Driving TipsThere's an old saying among Coloradans: If you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes.  As winter eases into a typically brief spring, you might want to enjoy the season with shorts, sandals, and a drive up into the mountains with the windows down and the music blasting.  But before you do that, just remember that Colorado springtime usually means a lot of severe weather is just over the horizon.


Read some interesting facts:

  • Mountains create microclimates and what might look like a day of clear blue skies on the news report, could be anything but from area to area.
  • The months of March and April typically get more snowfall than December and January every year.
  • The snowstorms that hit often bring a lot more moisture per storm as well, which means that roads can get very icy and road closures can happen very quickly.
  • Spring weather can last anywhere between a few months or just a few weeks.  Colorado has some very radical weather conditions due to the mountains we all get to enjoy, and in spite of the 300+ sunny days every year, from thunderstorms to hail, rain to blizzards from March to June, you have to be prepared.

Denver driving

Denver started off as a small city which has grown quite a bit in the last 20 years.  Home to a diverse population of native Coloradans and transplants alike, a city of three million people and growing has a wide profile of drivers, each with their own unique history and experience in driving.

Like any city, Denver has only so much space to accommodate all these people on the road.  With major interstates threading through a dozen cities throughout the Metro area, several different weather experiences could be happening at any given moment.

Safe spring driving tips

  • Keep your INFINITI equipped with all-weather tires to handle driving in rain, snow, and ice. Observe traction laws when traveling to the mountains.
  • When driving in poor weather like rain, snow, or hail, be sure to drop your speed and to brake early, using caution for click conditions. In fact, in severe storms, we recommend that you don’t drive at all, and, instead, wait for the weather to settle.
  • Drive defensively.  Never assume the person next to you knows what they are doing.
  • Stay off your phone!  Distracted driving is the leading cause of accidents in Colorado.
  • Slow down!  Keeping at a comfortable speed below the speed limit in extreme weather makes sure you get home safely.
  • Know when to brake.  Excessive or impulsive braking only causes accidents. Even with ABS braking, your car can lose traction and slide.  Impulsively hitting the brakes only causes alarm to other drivers in slick conditions.  Don't ride the brake.  Let your vehicle's motor slow you down by taking your foot off the gas pedal.
  • Keep your distance.  Maintaining plenty of distance between yourself and the person in front of you will reduce your chances of getting into an accident.

We wish everyone a happy spring (as long or as short as it might be) from INFINITI OF DENVER.  We are offer safe, luxury vehicles and auto service for any spring situation and hope that our Colorado spring driving tips keep you and yours safe this season!

Best Ways To Spend Spring In Denver

There is no doubt that Denver is one of the most beautiful cities, especially over Spring and Summer. Between the colorful trees and the mountain views, there really is just nothing like it. This city definitely does not lack on fun things to do, whether it be going to a baseball game or spending your day in the Denver Art Museum.

Located in the Capitol Hill District in Denver, the Denver Botanic Gardens is a 24-acre garden filled with exquisite plants from the Rocky Mountain Region and similar regions throughout the world. Their mission is to inspire the public by connecting people to the environment and their past, present, and future relationships with plants in the Rocky Mountain Region. The Denver Botanic Gardens have a total of seven different living collections, including two natural history collections, a library, and art collections. Although they are a part of Denver Free Days, where they have select days you can get in for free, tickets are quite affordable. Members are free, and it's $12.50 for Adults, $9.50 for Seniors (65+), $9.50 for Military & Veterans (with ID), $9.00 for Students (with ID), $9 for Children 3-15, and Children 2 and under are free.

All of the natural beauty is breathtaking and definitely worth seeing in person!

As you may know, the Colorado Rockies are one of our luxury partners, and here at INFINITI OF DENVER we love a good baseball game!

With the delicious food & drinks, the crazed fans, and the mountain and city skyline views, you will have the time of your life. Opening day is typically in the beginning of April with the season running all the way until the end of September, and the average regular season tickets range from $5 to $200. While you're at the legendary Coors field, you can check out the on-site breweries and restaurants, or spend your evening on the rooftop overlooking the mountains and the city skyline. Coors Field also offers behind-the-scenes tours of the entire stadium with the option of doing a private tour, Monday through Saturday. Since parking here is a little tight with it being right in the middle of the city, we suggest taking a 2019 Q50. Whether it be with family or friends, Rockies games are tons of fun to go to and they really show what Colorado is all about!
