Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

A nip and tuck for this year isn't enough to ignore the wrinkles in the aging 2018 Infiniti QX80.

Pros
Far more attractive than before
V-8 is charming
Beautiful interior upholstery
Active safety features aren't expensive

Cons
Traces roots back to 2010 and it shows
No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto
Still big and cumbersome despite tech
Very poor fuel economy

As big as a luxury yacht and almost as opulent inside, the QX80 is Infiniti’s answer to the Cadillac Escalade. It’s built on a full-size truck frame and powered by a 400-hp 5.6-liter V-8 with a seven-speed automatic; rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

Pros
Handsome visage,
burly naturally aspirated V-8.

Cons
Clumsy handling,
heavy drinker,
outdated and missing technology.

By:

The 2018 QX80 receives a noticeable exterior makeover. New LED headlights, taillights and foglights complement redesigned front and rear bumpers and a rear tailgate. The QX80 also rides along restyled wheels wrapped in softer sidewall tires, which, along with a retuned suspension, are intended to improve ride comfort.

PROS
Powerful V8 delivers strong acceleration and a high tow rating
Capable and controlled handling for a big SUV
Brakes deliver strong stopping power
Easy to see out of

CONS
Ride quality degrades with optional 22-inch wheels
Third-row seat is difficult to access and a tight fit for adults
Updated interior hasn't changed enough
Engine is thirstier than most

The 2017 Infiniti QX70 ranks 17 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 Infiniti QX70 is all about driving dynamics, offering powerful engine performance and sharp handling. However, you won't get the rear-seat or cargo space that many other SUVs offer. Though tech features are user-friendly, the interior design looks dated compared to rivals.

Pros
Powerful engine
Engaging handling
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity
Cramped rear seats
Some outdated tech features and design touches

By:

A new Limited package replaces last year's Deluxe Touring option and adds some cosmetic upgrades, but otherwise the QX70 returns unchanged.
The 2017 Infiniti QX70 is a performance SUV that gives you more sport than utility. It also has unique styling and a luxurious interior. But after several years on the market, it's beginning to show its age against newer competitors.

Pros
Sharp handling that makes it feel more like a sport sedan than a tall SUV
Plenty of passing power from the standard V6 engine
Well-trimmed interior has high-quality materials throughout.

Cons
Less forgiving over rough surfaces than most luxury SUVs
Rear passenger and cargo space are small for the class
Technology interface is noticeably dated compared to newer competitors
Only one engine option offered.

By:

It's starting to look and feel dated, but the QX70 provides a healthy dose of thrills and, surprisingly, value.
Formerly called the FX, the 2017 Infiniti QX70 makes some deliberate sacrifices for style and performance to be one of the most driver-focused crossovers available. It's certainly dated up against fresher rivals, but the QX70 focuses instead on delivering excellent driving dynamics in a way matched by few other vehicles of its ilk.

Pros
Terrific chassis
Flexible engine and transmission
Styled like nothing else

Cons
Cramped interior
Poor fuel economy
Expensive safety options
