Tech News from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas
Over the past several years, the CES in Las Vegas has become a venue to announce new connectivity platforms and big developments in autonomous tech. This year’s CES was no different and, as our world becomes more connected, the announcements are much less of a view of a far-off ideal as they are about what is actually happening and coming in the next decade or sooner.
When the EX35 debuted in 2008, it was focused on the sports-end of the emerging segment. Its strong V6, relatively low center of gravity, and rear wheel drive layout (AWD optional) won the hearts of those who strongly felt that a crossover didn’t have to be a dull handling vehicle.
The first generation QX50 came from a simple name change in 2014 – from the EX37 – while the actual car received hardly an update. Because of this, many still refer to the 2018 model as the EX35 or EX37 and Infiniti’s crossover fell behind the leaders of the pack. That is all about to be forgotten as the new QX50 is entirely new.
