The 2018 Infiniti QX80 is a big sport utility that rides the line between luxuriousness and capability. One thing it doesn't do is pretend to be smaller or less bold than it is. This statement-making SUV is no weakling, and the updates made for 2018 bring it forward and make it a much more compelling choice.
For 2018 Infiniti gave the QX80 a much-needed design refresh. Changes both outside and inside are meant to improve its luxury standing while adding modern amenities that are becoming standard for the segment. Also added are a new optional rearview camera screen in the rearview mirror, a retuned suspension and restyled wheel options.
In the past, we've enjoyed the QX80 for its luxurious no-nonsense and strong demeanor, but noted its poor fuel economy and relatively small fuel tank which only exacerbates that. Those things still remain, but the overall package is greatly improved with the 2018 updates.
The 2018 Infiniti QX80 is a full-sized, seven- or eight-seat luxury SUV that comes in one trim level with multiple options packages.
The 2017 Infiniti QX80 is a big, bold machine that doesn't make any bones about its size or luxury. It's remained largely unchanged for some time now, but has needed much to keep it relevant.
For 2017, changes are minimal and include the addition of in-car WiFi as part of the popular Theater Package upgrade. Trailer sway control is now standard in the QX80, going along with the now-standard tow kit. A huge array of standard equipment follows those additions. That's not to say that the QX80 is without its problems. Fuel economy and a relatively small fuel tank plague it, but our time in the QX80 also proved its bad-weather credibility to be high as well.
The QX80's bold exterior is matched with its luxurious interior. Excellent comfort-level luxury is matched with high-end technology and smart ergonomics throughout the inside. Match that with unexpectedly great off-road capability and some serious towing muscle and you get a great luxury SUV. It's easy to see why the QX80 is a top contender in this market.
The big 2016 Infiniti QX80 is one of a handful of full-sized sport utility vehicles that dominate the luxury market in both size and capability. This generation of the large and in charge QX80 has been around for a handful of years now and is wearing its age very well. For 2016, a few exterior tweaks to the very bold styling statement that the big Infiniti makes are all that's changed from the outside.
On the inside, a new interior fit and color choice is added and a limited-run Signature Edition is added that combines some popular technology packages for the SUV.
All told, though, this is one standout luxury sport utility and those who are drawn to it are those who want to go big and flaunt that choice. With a muscular presence, faster-than-expected performance metric, and excellent array of capabilities, the 2016 QX80 is definitely a top contender in the full-sized luxury SUV market today.
