Infiniti has reconfigured the QX80 lineup to include a new mid-range Premium Select trim and a high-end Sensory model for 2021. It also added standard driver-assistance features such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. The QX80 Premium Select wears unique styling elements, including dark-chrome exterior trim, 22-inch wheels, and matte-brown interior embellishments with either a Sahara Stone or Truffle Brown color scheme.

Pros
Handsome styling,
standard V-8 power,
plush and spacious cabin.

Cons
Seems outdated compared with rivals,
Nissan Armada is almost as luxurious,
poor fuel economy.
