Infiniti will roll out another version of its recently released 2017 QX70 this week at the New York International Auto Show.

The Nissan Motor Co. luxury brand will display a new Limited model of the performance crossover, which was unveiled in January at the Detroit auto show.

The vehicle – available in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive – is scheduled to go on sale this summer. It is the second Limited model in the Infiniti lineup, joining the 2016 QX80 Limited.

The Limited model’s exterior enhancements begin with a different front fascia; LED daytime running lights that the standard QX70 fog lights; and a new grille design. Other changes include body-color side air vents, dark-finish outside mirror housings, dark-finish rear combination lamps and a stainless-steel rear bumper protector.

Like the Infiniti QX70, the Limited model will be powered by a 325-horsepower 3.7-liter V-6 engine matched with a seven-speed automatic transmission.
