Infiniti’s flagship SUV may not be the one you’ll buy if you’re driving a lot of miles and have economy on your mind. But let’s pay homage to one of the last body-on-frame large and luxurious V-8 powerhouses!
The QX80 teams a 400-hp 5.6-liter V-8 with a seven-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive. And the QX80 can tow 8500 pounds in either configuration! The spacious cabin includes a standard third row, still leaving plenty of room for luggage behind it.
The starting price of the 2023 Infiniti QX80, at $74,595, undercuts a lot of competitors pricing in the large luxury SUV segment. Even at mid-level trim, you’ll get leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel with heat, second-row captain’s chairs, a 13-speaker Bose stereo system, in-dash navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and adaptive cruise control. MSRP on our 2023 top shelf Sensory 4WD QX80 was $87,450. Adding only a few cosmetic options and destination charge, it was $90,855.
Outdated? Stay Tuned!
While the technology and driver assist features on Infiniti’s flagship SUV may be behind the times. Stay tuned! Infiniti is readying a dramatically styled successor. The QX Monograph concept at 2023’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance promises much to come. And Infiniti recently confirmed at CES 2024 that the all-new 2025 QX80 will be available with a 24-speaker Klipsch® Reference Premiere Audio System, a first in the large luxury SUV segment.
