Infiniti’s biggest SUV is also its most capacious – and its most striking. The 2021 QX80 has seating for seven or eight, depending on if you want second-row captain’s chairs or a three-seater bench, and no shortage of cargo space with it. A side-effect there is serious road presence, with plenty of chrome and 22-inch wheels.
Under the hood there’s a 5.6-liter V8 engine with 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. It’s combined with either 2WD or 4WD, with a 7-speed automatic transmission standard. Either way it’ll tow up to 8,500 pounds, and do 0-60 mph in about six seconds.
Infiniti doesn’t stint on leather and wood inside, though the dual-display infotainment system is showing its age. You do, at least, get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, plus a WiFi hotspot. Pricing kicks off at $69,050 (plus $1,395 destination), but the biggest competition may very well be Nissan’s refreshed 2021 Armada.
