Infiniti QX50 Oil Capacity

Damage to engine caused by improper maintenance or use of incorrect oil and filter quality and/or viscosity is not covered by the INFINITI New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

The oil and oil filter change intervals for your engine are based on the use of the specified quality oils and filters. Using engine oil and filters that are not of the specified quality, or exceeding recommended oil and filter change intervals could reduce engine life.

How Much Oil Does an Infiniti QX50 Take?

The 2021 Infiniti QX50 with the 2.0L 4-cyl engine (engine code KR20DDET Turbo) takes 5 quarts (with filter) of 5W-30 synthetic oil. A new oil filter and a crush washer are required.

It is essential to choose the correct grade, quality and viscosity engine oil to ensure satisfactory engine life and performance. For additional information, refer to “Recommended fluids/lubricants and capacities” in this section. INFINITI recommends the use of energy-conserving oil in order to improve fuel economy.

Select only engine oils that meet the American Petroleum Institute (API) certification or International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) certification and SAE viscosity standard. These oils have the API certification mark on the front of the container. Oils that do not have the specified quality label should not be used as they could cause engine damage.

Engine Oil capacity (with filter) Oil type (viscosity grade)
3.7 L V6 VQ37VHR 320 hp (239 kW) 5.2 quarts (5 L) 5W-30
2.0 L KR20DDET turbo I4 (petrol) 4.7 liter / 5 U.S. qt / 4.1 imp. qt 5W-30

If the above motor oil (or engine oil) is not available, a synthetic SAE 5W-30 GF-5 SN motor oil (or engine oil) may be used. Damage caused by the use of motor oil (or engine oil) other than as recommended is not covered under INFINITI’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Your engine was filled with high-quality engine oil when it was built. You do not have to change the oil before the first recommended change interval. Oil and filter change intervals depend upon how you use your vehicle.

The engine oil viscosity or thickness changes with temperature. Because of this, it is important to select the engine oil viscosity based on the temperatures at which the vehicle will be operated before the next oil change. Choosing an oil viscosity other than that recommended could cause serious engine damage.
