Let's see what it has that it dares gives goosebumps to the Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade which are going to be its rivals in the same segment. Read our review of the Infiniti QX80 2019 now!

The Infiniti QX80 2019 is some really fabulous piece of automobile, designed to compete favorably with rivals like the Lincoln Navigator and the Cadillac Escalade. And, speaking from an auto-tech expert vantage point, I will say that they really did marvelous work with this one.


The Infiniti QX80 is a strong rival of the Cadillac Escalade

Engine and performance of Infiniti QX80 2019

Infiniti built the QX80 to be the real beast. With a towing capacity which stands at a maximum value of 3856 kg, the QX80 is no joker when it comes to stamina. The beast is supported to accomplish such work by a 5.6-liter, V8 configuration engine that can deliver up to 400 hp. When you consider the almost 3 tons of curb weight of the SUV, you will appreciate why it needs that much power. With that much power, it helps provide enough torque, standing at a tall and solid value of 413 pound-ft.

Just like the Cadillac Escalade and the Lincoln Navigator, the Infiniti QX80 2019 generates good acceleration. The QX80’s 7-speed automatic transmission assists in propelling her to 60 km/h in less than 6 seconds, starting from rest, and when you consider that this is almost 3 tons of weight, you’ll agree with me that it's an applaudable feature. Before I forget, she also comes with the standard rear-wheel drive (4*2), and the (4*4) all-wheel drive, duly supported by some powerful locking differential fitted on the rear axle.

The QX80 very strong performance when negotiating a bend. This car uses the HBMC technology which makes use of hydraulic cylinders placed closed to the suspension systems. This manages the car's roll stiffness by weight transfer, thus balancing the cars and eliminating passenger rear roll when the car makes a bend. This technology also manages vibration control when the car is traveling through an uneven and bumpy road, thus ensuring a stress-free ride for the driver and passengers alike.

Interior and exterior of Infiniti QX80 2019

Infiniti designed the largest car in her collection to be as attractive and inviting as possible. The new appearance of this new offering looks fashionable, exuding Infiniti, demanding respect and craving the front row in the parking lot. It's just that kind of ride that won’t miss your admiring gaze. With her detailed elegance and her undeniable charm, the QX80 just gets your attention when she rolls by.

The interior doesn’t disappoint either, the seats are made so luxuriously comfy that you wouldn’t mind going to sleep on it. They are made with the nicest foam and expertly covered with the finest quality natural leather.

The QX80 can comfortably seat up to 7 persons

The Infinity QX80 2019 can comfortably seat 7 passengers. It offers enough leg and headroom, as well as just enough cargo space at the trunk.

Fuel economy of Infiniti QX80 2019

I decided to write on the fuel economy separately. It deserves this much attention because we at help you make the best decisions when it comes to the choice of cars to purchase.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG G65 is known to hold the worst names, combining fuel economy rating, standing at 12 mpg or 8.3 gallons per 100 miles. The Infiniti QX80 2019 ranks too close to the top and thus offers some real worry. It quaffs up approximately 15.7 liters of fuel every 100 kilometers. If that figure is not scary, I don’t know which would. If we consider the instance of the Mercedes Benz G65, it is forgivable that she consumes that much fuel considering that it moves around with a 6.0 liters, 12-cylinder engine that generates an astonishing 630 hp.

But, the QX80 gulps an annoying 15.7 liters per 100 kilometers yet generates just about 460 hp. Nissan cars are known to be less fuel efficient and this one surely falls all over that same line too.

Technology of Infiniti QX80 2019

The Infiniti QX80 2019 makes use of standard infotainment accessories. It has multimedia screens fitted on the back end of seat headrest. It employs the Amazon-owned Alexa which is a service hosted on the Amazon cloud. This service takes connectivity to the next level. Add to this, the QX80 employs other innovative technology like the remote access controls (enables you to perform several operations remotely), roadside assistance, automatic collision control, journey planner and others.

The QX80 is also fitted with the rearview camera mirror which assists the driver by offering expansion to the driver's scope of vision needed to make better driving decisions.

Finally, the Infiniti QX80 2019 flaunts some really nice safety systems. Apart from the various electronically controlled collision prevention features, the car has an advanced system that strategically positioned airbags across the car. This system enhances driver and passenger safety by limiting the intensity of the crash impact that reaches the car’s occupants in the event of an accident.
