Safe Thanksgiving Driving

Across the nation over the next month, many Americans will embark on a longer-than-average journey to spend time with their loved ones while enjoying food and fellowship around the dinner table. It's a time of year when those who were gone at school come home to catch up and visit while spreading out in front of football games on TV and basking in the warmth of the company sorely missed during the long months away from home.

Many others will be hitting the road along with you as well, and practicing safe Thanksgiving driving is essential to assure that you and your loved ones avoid any collisions or other mishaps before this holiday's festivity. Here are a few tips for driving on Thanksgiving to see you through a special time where turkey and trimmings are the norm, and pumpkin pie rounds off the perfect meal with loved ones!


  •  Thorough Vehicle Inspection:

    Long trips are not a time where you want to neglect any detail while looking over your car beforehand. The transmission, brakes, coolant, and oil fluids all should be topped off, and defrosting before you leave is important after any evening with low temps.  Make sure you are turkey ready either using our complimentary pick up and delivery, Home by INFINITI OF DENVER or come visit us in our Service Department.

  • Schedule your Pre-thanksgiving service at  
  • Have Ample Supplies:

    Making sure that you have enough snacking material and entertainment such as DVDs for the journey is important and can help to cut down on stops during the trip. Many travelers who have unexpectedly become stuck wished they had blankets with them, as they can be a life-saving asset during an emergency.

  • GPS: A Handy Game-Changer:

    Most new INFINITI models come equipped with Navigation. No longer do travelers have to just throw up a wild guess when it comes to nearby restaurants or filling stations, or any inclement weather that may unexpectedly move in.  You can also see traffic real time.

  • Seeing After the Safety of Pets:

    During an interstate drive with heavy traffic, the presence of pets can be a distraction for drivers and passengers alike. A cage or harness may be the best option to assure that your furry loved ones make the trip in a way that is most comfortable for everyone.

  • The Urgency of Buckling Up:

    Aside from being the law in most states, this Is the easiest way to assure a top level of safety if there is a form of collision. Your younger passengers will be best protected by using child restraint seats and their respective seat belts, assuring that everyone on board gets to enjoy the warmth and memory-making of this special holiday.

  • Imminent Dangers Of Distraction:

    Daydreaming of cranberries and stuffing sure to be present at the table is quite a distraction itself, but texting and talking on the phone can be as dangerous as intoxication! To assure a safe arrival and refrain from any traffic element taking you by surprise, it's best to pull over and handle anything on the smartphone with your hands off the wheel.

  • Ideal INFINITI Choices for the Journey:

    As you are getting ready for one of the most important and rewarding times of the year, the ideal vehicle is going to render the trip comfortable as well as memorable. The 2023 INFINITI QX60 has been designed to live up to long-trip potential, boasting ProPILOT Assist technology and safety features such as Lane Departure Warning to take over if anything dangerous occurs. With seating for up to 8, the 2023 QX80 offers ideal space, a smooth ride, and keeps you safe for Turkey Day travels with Forward Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection.

Rules of the Road for Vehicles & Cyclists

All drivers are likely aware of the phrase “share the road” but few know the rules of the road for vehicles and cyclists and how to effectively do so. INFINITI OF DENVER wants our drivers to coexist with cyclists to prevent accidents and injury and to help you avoid being ticketed for not following certain vehicle/cyclist road rules.

  1. First, Stay in Your Lane!

The simplest tip to effectively coexist with cyclists is also the most obvious: don’t drive in the bike lane! Bike lanes are designed to give cyclists and drivers their own separate areas for each other’s safety, but drivers will often cut into the bike line, intentionally or unintentionally, to pass another vehicle, momentarily park, or give themselves more space. While it may seem trivial to just cut into the bike lane on occasion, it’s not a good habit to develop. Depending on the design of the road there could be a cyclist just over the hill or just around a bend that you’d have to swerve to avoid, risking your safety, their safety, and the safety of the other drivers on the road. Most accidents are caused when a driver doesn’t notice a cyclist and simply avoiding the bike lane in the first place can help you avoid an accident. This holds true especially at night considering over half of all bicycle accidents happen when it’s dark outside.

  1. Passing Cyclists While Ensuring Safety

Passing cyclists while ensuring yours and their safety requires you to always pass on the left when traffic in the next lane over is clear. This requires patience so some drivers may need to adjust their attitude and remember the cyclist is also a person with their own right to the road. When passing cyclists, aggressive or impatient drivers will need to find a way to motivate themselves to give cyclists the room they need to stay safe on the road. Cyclists should be using hand signals to alert those around them when they are turning – a left arm extended straight out signals a left turn and either a partially raised left arm or a right arm extended straight out signals a right turn – so pay attention to these as well. Cyclists should also signal when they’re stopping or slowing down by extending an arm towards the ground. For a visual reference, consult page 10 of the Colorado Bicycling Manual.

  1. Stay Alert

You should especially be aware and alert in urban areas, as there are already a number of distractions and oftentimes no bicycle lanes. Denver, Colorado is quite the bike friendly city and that won’t be changing anytime soon, so it’s good to familiarize yourself with the rules of the road for both cyclists and vehicles to ensure your safety and cyclist safety.


INFINITI Safety Features

Obviously, the rules above will improve your summer cyclist awareness, but to sweeten the deal even more, INFINITI also boasts a range of safety features that ensure an even safer commute for those in and outside the vehicle.

  • With Forward Emergency Breaking, you can rely on your INFINITI to detect potential frontal collisions and brake in emergency situations.
  • With Steering Assist features and the innovative Lane Departure Warning, your INFINITI will correct itself by centering the vehicle in its lane to avoid drifting.
  • Your INFINITI may even include the Around View® Monitor which provides a 360 degree view of the car and its surroundings so you can stay aware of objects all around you.

We invite you to come experience the difference at INFINITI OF DENVER and shop our selection of new 2022 INFINITI models. Contact our sales experts or shop our safe, luxury vehicles online and experience the difference!

Summer Driving Tips from INFINITI OF DENVER

Summer is nearly here in Denver, and that means driving season is upon us. But before you go tearing through the Rockies or set out on your next long road trip, make sure you consider these summer driving tips from INFINITI OF DENVER.

  1. Plan Ahead for Severe Weather

Check the forecast. Colorado can have severe summer weather like heavy rain, hail, and the occasional snow shower. Remain vigilant about road conditions and visibility, and plan ahead when possible.

  1. Keep Your Speed Under Control

A lead foot is bad news. You could get a ticket, and speeding increases the risk of an accident. So stay under the speed limit, and consider using cruise control to “set and forget” your speed during long highway trips.

  1. Always Use a Designated Driver if Drinking!

Never get behind the wheel if you’ve been drinking. Use a designated driver to keep the fun rolling all summer long!

  1. Buckle Up to Stay Safe & Avoid Tickets

If you don’t buckle your seatbelt in Colorado, you could get a ticket – and you have a much higher risk of dying in an accident. Make sure you and all your passengers are properly secured and buckled at all times.

  1. Keep Your Eyes on The Road & Avoid Distractions

Yes, the Rockies are gorgeous – but don’t spend too much time drinking in the great view of Colorado. Stay focused on the road and the drivers around you, particularly when you’re in winding, mountainous areas.

  1. Limit Cell Phone Use

Similar to the point above, it is important to stay off your phone while driving. Texting, tweeting, and talking are all hazardous to your focus behind the wheel, and it only takes a second to make a driving error that could hinder your passengers’ and your safety.

  1. Maintain Your Car Before Your Next Road Trip

Make sure your tires are in good shape, change your oil, repair your brakes – long summer drives mean that you need to be more diligent about your car’s maintenance. Take it into the shop for a little TLC.

  1. Check Your Fluid Levels

The summer heat makes overheating a real possibility. It’s a good idea to check your fluid levels, particularly your coolant, before heading out on a long drive. In fact, it’s an even better idea to service your vehicle before your next trip to prevent any unwanted surprises.

Which INFINITI Models Have AWD?

What You Need to Know

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.

Shop INFINITI AWD Sedans, Crossovers & More at INFINITI OF DENVER

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.

Best Luxury Vehicles for Families

There are a lot of variables to consider when planning to purchase a vehicle, and one of the most common considerations is how your new vehicle will perform for your family. Families have specific needs when it comes to vehicles, and luxury cars are no exception. Determining the best cars for kids means thinking about safety, accessibility, technology, and comfort. The best luxury autos for families should be able to check the boxes in each of those categories, and INFINITI has some strong contenders.

INFINITI focuses on manufacturing cars and SUVs that can please both parents and children alike, all while achieving attractive scores in areas such as performance, safety, and practicality. At INFINITI OF DENVER, we help to support families in our community by offering a variety of options for each of our family-friendly vehicles.

Family-Friendly INFINITI Models

  • The QX80 is the largest INFINITI in production and has the size and ability to meet the needs of any family. There’s room for everyone with seven seats, and those in the back can have access to a rear entertainment system to keep them occupied throughout the drive. What makes the QX80 one of the best cars for kids is its whopping 95.1 cubic feet of rear cargo space, meaning that there’s space to house sports equipment, class projects, and more. Up front, the heated seats, tri-zone climate control, and 13-speaker Bose audio system will keep parents happy and in control.
  • A more fuel-efficient option, the QX60 has the same striking luxury found in its larger counterpart. With dedicated seating for five as well as a folding third-row seat, the INFINITI QX60 can transport seven people to their destination in complete comfort. Optional 7” screens at the rear of the front seat headrests provide the option of movies or video games while on the road, and the full leather interior and intuitive navigation system help mom and dad relax while in the safety of a 5-star rated crossover (5-star safety rating provided by the IIHS). The QX60 is truly one of the best luxury cars for families.
  • The smallest of the QX range, the QX50 is anything but underwhelming. The QX50 is an affordable crossover that offers luxurious comfort for five people and provides INFINITI customers with a practical choice for younger children. The smaller design makes it ideal for loading and securing children and the IIHS “Good” safety rating means that parents can rest assured that their most precious cargo is protected. If you are looking for the best cars for kids, the QX50 is a smart choice that also offers a good amount of pep from a 3.7L V6 engine built to get you where you’re going.
  • Not every family needs an SUV! If you’re starting a new family and want the versatility and fuel efficiency of a sedan, the 2021 INFINITI Q50 is one of the best luxury cars for families. Powered by a 3.0L twin turbo charged V6 engine, owners will enjoy the best of both acceleration and economic savings. A spacious interior provides ample room for child safety seats, especially with the 8-way power driver’s and front-passenger’s seats to maneuver for custom comfort.


INFINITI OF DENVER is committed to providing you with options that will suit the needs of your family for years to come. Reach out to one of our professional sales consultants to get more information about kid-friendly options for your new INFINITI and discover why INFINITI manufactures the best luxury cars for families.

Preparing Your Car for a Road Trip

Prepare your car for a road tripLet’s face it, staying indoors for months on end can make even the best of us become a little stir-crazy. As many regions push to get back to normal after the lengthy span of the COVID-19 pandemic, road trips have become a popular choice for those seeking a safer adventure than traditional travel options such as airplanes or public transit.

But before you decide who’s in charge of snacks and music, there are a few road trip tips you’ll want to consider. When preparing your car for a road trip, you should ensure that certain things are taken care of before you head out so you, your family, and your car stay safe as you trek across the country.


Things You Can Do to Prepare Your Car for a Road Trip

There are many small services and checks that you can perform right at home or in your driveway. They may be small but can save you a lot of hassle once you are on your way.

  • Check your tire pressure and tread. The last thing you want is to blow a tire on the highway. If you have sufficient tire tread, make sure that the pressure levels are set to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Check your oil level. Low oil can create problems within your engine as moving parts won’t have the proper lubrication. You can top it off if it’s a little low, but you may need to consider having a technician complete an oil and filter change instead.
  • Top off your washer fluid. As the warmer weather comes, so do the bugs. Make sure your washer fluid reservoir is full and carry extra fluid in case you need to top off while on the road.
  • Check your lights. Blown bulbs make it difficult for you to see, and more importantly, they make it difficult for others to see you. Check all lights and signals to make sure you’ll remain visible.


Road Trip Preparation That You Should Leave to Your Local Service Technician

While some of the obvious checks can be completed at home, there are a number of services that you’ll want to have a certified technician perform to ensure that your vehicle is in roadworthy condition and all components are working properly.

  • Oil change. A certified technician can ensure that your engine oil and oil filter are changed properly and that the right type and correct amount of oil is used. At INFINITI OF DENVER, we also conduct a complementary 27-point inspection with every oil change.  This way you know for certain that your car is ready for your road trip.
  • Check engine light. If you have error codes that are causing lights to illuminate on your instrument panel, a technician can scan your vehicle’s computer to diagnose the codes and prevent further problems.
  • Brake pad replacement. You might have the urge to hit the road without stopping, but you’ll need to physically stop at some point! If your pads are worn, a technician should replace them to provide you with adequate stopping power.
  • Scheduled maintenance. Be sure to have your technician complete any maintenance items that are due, or that will become due before you return. This helps you save on future repair costs.


INFINITI OF DENVER Can Get You Ready for the Road

At INFINITI OF DENVER, our team of certified technicians knows just what your vehicle needs to provide safe and reliable transport during your next road trip. We’re committed to providing you with car service for long trip durations to make sure that you get where you’re going without a breakdown.

How to Celebrate a Denver 4th of July Without Fireworks or Crowds

Nothing says Independence Day quite like a spectacular fireworks display illuminating the evening sky, but COVID-19 restrictions mean that events which draw large crowds—like lighting off fireworks—are simply out of the question.

If you’re searching for creative ways to make your Denver 4th of July memorable despite these unusual measures, then our team at INFINITI OF DENVER is here to help. We’ve compiled a list of the five best ways to celebrate a Denver 4th of July without the fireworks or the crowds. We care about our community, so we brainstormed some activities that will ensure you have an incredible holiday, while keeping your friends and family safe.

Top 6 Ways to Celebrate 4th of July Without Fireworks or Crowds

Whether the patriotism, the sense of community, the grilled hotdogs, or the excuse for a good party ranks as your favorite part of Independence Day, one of these alternatives to fireworks is bound to check all your boxes.

  1. Look for Shooting Stars 

    If there’s just something you love about the act of staring up at a dazzling performance in the night sky on the 4th of July, then don’t let a global pandemic stand in your way—fireworks may be canceled, but Mother Nature has a way of stepping in at the right moment.Simply pack up your family, friends, or a loved one into your INFINITI and make your way to a clearing with as little light pollution as possible. Before long, you’re bound to catch a glimpse of a few shooting stars.

  1. Host A Patriotic Barbecue 

    Though you may not be comfortable hosting a massive party inside of your home right now, a small cookout in your backyard can be a great way to celebrate the birth of the nation while still maintaining some social distance.Throw some food on the grill, hang some banners, and get creative with how you show your love of country with your friends and family this year.

  1. Go Camping 

    As a Denver native, you have access to some of the most beautiful scenery in the nation; maybe you can’t watch fireworks this 4th of July, but that doesn’t mean you can’t witness something awe-inspiring.Whether you prefer to take a lightweight approach, or you haul a whole mini camper, the 2020 INFINITI QX80 is a camping lover’s dream. Take your mountain-ready SUV out for a spin this 4th of July weekend and remind yourself how lucky you are to live in such a beautiful part of the United States!

  1. Get Crafty 

    Maybe you have kids and you don’t want them to lose sight of the meaning behind Independence Day, or perhaps you’re just a Pinterest addict looking for a reason to tackle a new project. Either way, crafts are an engaging way to honor the 4th of July without fireworks.For a more educational experience, you can create small American flags from felt, explaining the significance of the stars and stripes. To keep things on the lighter side, simply whipping up some red, white, and blue slime is a fun way to celebrate the day.

  1. Substitute Sparklers and Confetti 

    For some, it just doesn’t feel like the 4th of July without a little bit of flash and excitement.

Best INFINITI Road Trip Cars

Best Road Trip CarsThere’s something nostalgic and thrilling all at once about the idea of a road trip, especially as far too many people across the country are limiting their dreams of the open road to wishful thinking for the time being.

To support all of the wanderlust that’s being deferred to a later date, we’ve compiled a list of some of INFINITI’s best road trip cars available, including our favorite cross country SUVs and Crossovers, so you can be prepared once you’re able to hit the road and travel freely.



One of the newest INFINITI Crossovers to hit the market, the 2020 QX50 brings all of the infotainment innovations you would expect from a brand new car (and yearn for during a long road trip), plus practical features that make it an excellent choice for long hauls. Not to mention, since the QX50 is brand new, it will come with the added comfort of a warranty, providing unparalleled peace of mind.

Earning an impressive 29 mpg on the highway, you could take the 2020 QX50 Crossover across the country without spending a fortune, but its spacious design, panoramic power moonroof, heated seats, and automatic braking will still have you feeling as if you’re leading a life of luxury during your next road trip.



If INFINITI SUVs are more your style, then the new QX80 will blow you away with its style and power. Whether you’re looking to bring your entire family along for a weekend road trip, haul a small trailer across a few states, or take a cross country tour from the comfort of your luxury SUV, the QX80 is the answer.

The 5.6-liter V8 engine of this SUV can generate up to 400 horsepower, so there are virtually no limits to the activities you can complete during your road trip with the QX80. All that power is complemented by an incredibly stylish (and roomy) interior, so you’ll stay comfortable no matter how far you plan on trekking.



Another crossover in the lineup, this may be the best INFINITI for a road trip if you’re a family looking to blend practicality and comfort with style and function. Not only does the QX60 feature three rows of seating, making it an amazing option for comfortably transporting groups with children, but it also comes with emergency braking and backup collision intervention for a wholly safe environment.

In addition to boasting a comfortable and protected environment, the QX60 also incredibly sleek. For groups who don’t want to compromise on aesthetics but do want to feel assured that their vehicles will keep them safe no matter how long their road trip takes, the QX60 is a perfect road trip car.

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!
