Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The 400 horsepower made by the 5.6-liter V8 is less than average for the class, but the engine is strong, smooth and silent. The QX80 accelerates well, using its decent torque of 413 pound-feet.

The ride is excellent, even with the optional 22-inch wheels, but the handling is cumbersome, even with steering that’s too light for us. Thanks to the heavy, truck-type platform, you feel the SUV’s heft on the highway, and in town the size makes it hard to park. It protests if it’s driven too fast in corners by leaning and squealing. The good news is the brakes are big and powerful, when you recognize it won’t go there.

More good news is the available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system, which controls the beast. It uses hydraulic pressure at individual wheels to reduce lean, but we aren’t convinced it improves the ride or is worth the price. For towing, there’s an automatic leveling system at the rear end.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

The INFINITI QX80 blends classic SUV design with glamour, but its bulbous organic shapes show a lapse in good design taste, mashing up against the traditional truck-like profile. To some it looks like a beached whale. It has an SUV forehead that’s too tall, without much slope to the windshield, and chrome fender vents that are cheesy, even though one of them is functional. The grille is huge, while massive LED headlamps and foglamps pull the eyeballs to the front. It isn’t pretty.

However, some see vintage charm in the profile. It brings back those 1980s days of the Nissan Trooper and Mitsubishi Montero, with its light side glass. The angled rear pillars, raised tailgate panels, and swelled fenders are all family INFINITI touches.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

The cabin is the best part of the QX80. It’s as radiant as the Mercedes GLS, as refined as the Escalade, and an interesting alternative to the Range Rover. The burled wood swirls around the hockey-stick angles of the dash, and the hazelnut leather is part of a handsome blend with a masculine feel. It has the grace and finesse of the INFINITI Q70 sedan.

The cabin is spacious, at least in front, with seats that are big, high and luxurious, although the driver’s knees are crowded by the center console, which at least is padded.

In the rear, despite the vehicle’s size, three passengers in the bench seat will be crowded, so we prefer the two captain’s chairs with a center console having a deep bin. This reduces seating capacity from eight to seven. The second-row captain’s chairs have available heating, and tip forward to make it easier to climb back to the third row, which will fit adult passengers in a pinch but is meant for kids.

Behind the third row there’s 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space, about as much as the trunk of a sedan. To get the full 95.1 cubic feet, both rows must be powered down. A power liftgate is standard.


New Car Test Drive

A full-tilt INFINITI QX80 Limited pushes the six-figure barrier in price, and for that you get a six-year-old design on a pickup-truck chassis, with a plush interior and nice ride, but an engine that makes less horsepower than the competition, and handling that’s poor unless you buy the system that makes it acceptable.
