Full-size SUV QX80 was unveiled at last car show in New York. Many spectators asked about its release, and it is probable to arrive as 2017 Infiniti QX80. Ever since 1989, when this class arrived to US, with predecessor of current model, QX56, it has been very attractive and innovative crossover. For new SUV, some changes will be applied inside the cabin and outside, while refreshment is being prepared for engine range. However, its competition is not letting them easily win the battle for the market, since Chevrolet and Cadillac are preparing redesigned Tahoe and Escalade to follow new QX80.

This huge crossover needs lot of horses under its hood. At least 400 hp is expected from 5.6-l V8, which is very possible to make another appearance in 2017 Infiniti QX80 model. Torque level is close to horsepower with 420 lb-ft. With automatic, 7-speed transmission, power is distributed to all four wheels by default, while rear-wheel drive system will be installed at buyers choice. For this full-size SUV, acceleration is not the most important factor, but 8 seconds are needed to reach 60 mph. Maximum towing will be around 9000 pounds, which is great result. Mileage is not important to owners of the Infiniti QX80, but it is good to mention that vehicle is very thirsty, taking 16 mpg.

2017 Infiniti QX80 safety and price

Safety systems inside in this full-size SUV were graded excellent in previous versions. So it is expected from 2017 Infiniti QX80. New alert system for forward collision is installed, while parking sensors system is updated. We also expect upgrades on braking, and warnings for blind spot and lane departure. In this phase of developing, we think fair price for 2017 QX80 would be $70.000. We will have to wait to see what do people in Infiniti think.

  1. I just went out of the Cadillac escalade and got this (QX56) baby. Please think about adding some of the obvious. I was soooooo surprised that my car did not have automatic start. Really wow. Also I was surprised how hard it was to find one that had heated and cooled seats. They all had heated but not cooled. It gets hot in Texas during summer. Also when you shut the car off I’m use to the radio staying on so if I’m listen to the news I can finish listening with out my car running.

    1. QX80’s have remote start.

    2. You bought an older QX model. Which doesnt have remote start and is why you couldnt find one with cooled seats.

  2. make 3rd row same leg , shoulder and and hip room as 2nd row.
    move rear axle behind third row seat.
    Give third row it’s own doors for 6 door total.
    expand cargo behind 3rd row seat to 30 cubic feet.
    a turbo v8 to finish off the new longer and heavier new version

    1. Funny. REAL funny. Doing so would increase the length/size and weight to a prohibitive quantity.

  3. Why doesn’t it come with an option for the center console to be removed, which would create an easy pass through to the third row???

    1. I actually removed mine, There are four screws, two on each side. unscrew them and it pops right out. Than you have the brackets that stick out of carpet. you can unscrew them also fairly easily. two screws each for the two brackets. and carpet pulls up and you can take them out easily.

  4. I would’ve bought the QX80 but I have 3 kids and bc there’s not enough cargo space, I had to go with the Chevy Suburban !

    1. Wow…there’s a huge step down. Couldn’t afford it?

    2. Suburban has 130″ wheelbase. QX80 121″. 9 inches makes a difference in 3rd row seatroom.

  5. I own qx56 and love it so much. Qx80 needs to redesign the back like make it looks modern instead own fashion so I will buy another one.

    1. I totally agree with you on that! The rear does look outdated. too rounded corners and bumper sticks out like a jaw. the front looks great. I got the qx80 and the rear is the only thing i dont like. Also the fuel milage!! 12.6 for city/highway mix. VERY HORRIBLE. but otherwise a great vehicle!

    2. Do you mean to make it look like a box? Like everyone else?

    3. I have had q x56 for the past 10 years. A great vehicle but waiting for a total body change before I buy another one. I hate to think I got to go to another brand. I would like to know when they’re going to change the body style.

  6. I have a Qx80. I get 12.6 miles to the gallon in a city/highway mix. Anyone else have such horrible gas mileage?? they quoted 14city and 19 highway. They were totally off, i drove real carefully on highway for 4 hours and i got 16 mpg the best! They really need to improve fuel mileage!!

    1. btw its a 2015 qx80 with 8k miles

    2. There is no such thing as a 6,000lb. economy car.

  7. Own a FX and Q and the LEATHER is CHEAPLY made compared to my Mercedes and previously Jaguar.The seats are LEATHER and pleather around the seats which year over time.My 2008 Mercedes which is older has no years but real LEATHER all around. Bottom line you’ll eventually notice where they cut corners.The drivers seat doesn’t recline enough for my 6′ frame so I have to recline the seat.Will never but another!No lights on steering wheel at night so the controls are useless.

    1. QX80 has lit steering wheel controls.

    2. The platinum version is the one you want. It has real leather all around and real wood.

  8. I RENTED THE QX80..WOW.. I WISH I COULD AFFORD ONE? AN AWESOME SUV..I AM OVER 70 YO AND IT IS A SAFE SUV FOR US SENIOR CITIZEN. GREAT VEHICLE.
