About the INFINITI QX80

From the moment you step behind the wheel, you’ll immediately gain an appreciation for the luxurious amenities and commanding presence of the full-size INFINITI QX80. Powered by a muscular 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine, the QX80 has the ability to tow even your biggest toys along the way to your weekend getaway thanks to a maximum towing capacity of up to 8,500 pounds. Its bold proportions are complemented by standard 20-inch alloy wheels which give the QX80 a confident stance on the road.

Whether you have a growing family or a growing social circle — the INFINITI QX80 offers a premium interior with space for up to 8 passengers. Even third-row passengers can enjoy easy entry and exit thanks to a standard 60/40 power split fold-flat and reclining third-row seat. Travel in first-class style with optional premium amenities including two-tone semi-aniline leather with Alcantara® appointed seating with quilting, contrast piping and stitching, and open pore Ash wood trim. INFINITI InTouch™ Services opens up a new dimension of connectivity between you and your INFINITI QX80.

What the Critics Say

Luxury three-row off-road capable family transportation is quite the niche, and it’s one that the QX80 aims for directly. This big-bodied SUV can seat up to eight passengers—on leather seats, natch—and offers plenty of space for cargo as well. A 5.6-liter V-8 provides adequate power and a deep-throated burble that seems well-matched to the QX80’s masculine styling.”

— Car and Driver

Luxury SUVs – and even nonluxury SUVs – of this size aren’t known for being agile. The INFINITI QX80 bucks that trend. Its available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system gives it a smoother ride and nimbler handling. Body lean around corners is minimal, and this SUV slides over bumps and dips in the road without jostling its occupants.”

INFINITI QX80 Features


Powerful Performance & Bold Styling

Both powerful and efficient, the 5.6-liter V8 engine of the INFINITI QX80 gives you the ability to tow up to a massive 8,500 pounds (when properly equipped). Available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system monitors force and distributes variable pressure to either the outer or inner suspension, resulting in less body lean and a smooth ride. Optional All-Mode® 4WD monitors and tunes torque between front and rear wheels to help maintain grip on rainy or snowy roads, featuring individually selectable 4H and 4L modes. Visually representing the immense strength of the QX80, confident body lines help you make a confident statement of elegance from behind the wheel. Expressive LED headlights provide exceptionally clear visibility while complementing the chiseled front grille of the INFINITI QX80.

Premium Interior

Following the ideology of luxury without limits, the cabin of the INFINITI QX80 allows all occupants to indulge in expansive comfort and entertainment features. Leather-appointed seating and a heated, leather-wrapped steering help you sense the luxury from the instant you take a seat behind the wheel. Other upscale interior options include soft semi-aniline leather-appointed seating, ventilated front seats that warm and cool, heated second-row seats, and your choice of Espresso or Charcoal Burl accents.

With the available rear entertainment system, you’ll receive dual 8-inch color monitors which allow second-row passengers to play games or watch movies on the way to your destination. Always forward-thinking, the available Smart Rearview Mirror means your view is never blocked by passengers, cargo, or even darkness. Standard INFINITI InTouch™ Navigation includes a 12.3-inch LCD touchscreen display, Lane Guidance, and Voice Recognition to help you arrive at your destination safely and on time.

Driver-Assistive Safety

Since even the best drivers can use a helping hand from time to time, the INFINITI QX80 is available with some of the most cutting-edge safety innovations available on a full-size SUV. An INFINITI world’s first, Predictive Forward Collision Warning can respond to a potential collision in front of you, along with Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Lane Departure Warning and Lane Departure Prevention work to keep you from unintentionally drifting from your lane. A Standard Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) lets you park your QX80 with complete confidence. Standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) operates by maintaining a fixed distance relative to the vehicle in front of you, especially useful in stop-and-go traffic.
