Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Infiniti QX80 ranks 4 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. Despite a few weaknesses, the 2017 Infiniti QX80's strong performance, low base price, and elegant, well-equipped interior should meet your needs. However, it has the same disadvantage as most large SUVs: a cramped third row. Many of its rivals also use less fuel.

Pros
Large cargo area
Easy-to-use infotainment system
High-quality interior
Exciting acceleration

Cons
Cramped third row
Poor fuel economy

The 2017 Infiniti QX80's handling and fuel economy suffer for its size and weight, but it combines power, seating for eight, and towing capability in a luxurious package.
The Infiniti QX80 is full-size traditional body-on-frame SUV that competes at the high end of the market. Formerly known as the QX56, the QX80's mechanicals might no longer be in vogue. All three models—QX80, QX80 AWD, and QX80 Limited—offer seating for up to eight and big V-8 power. A top rival for the Cadillac Escalade, the QX80 is the best Infiniti SUV to date and is superior to at least a few of its competitors.

Pros
An upscale cabin
Tough off-roading ability
A genuine SUV
Strong powertrain performance

Cons
Finger-light steering
Very thirsty
Oversize front end a turnoff to some
Gaudy fender vents

For some shoppers, a minivan just doesn't have the right capabilities. Even large, crossover-based SUVs won't do the trick. That's where hulking three-row, luxury vehicles such as the 2017 Infiniti QX80 come into play. With real towing power, high-quality interior appointments and a big-SUV attitude, the QX80 can shuttle your whole crew, and it can do it with style.Trailer sway control is now standard across the lineup. In-car Wi-Fi is now part of the optional Theater Package.

Pros
Well-trimmed cabin that looks and feels truly luxurious
Powerful V8 delivers strong acceleration and a high tow rating
Tightly controlled handling that makes it feel smaller from behind the wheel

Cons
Third-row seat is a tight fit for adults
Ride quality gets choppy with optional 22-inch wheels

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.

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
