With its first-rate cabin materials, surprisingly agile handling and strong engine, 2015 Infiniti QX80 is the luxury large SUV leaving the competition in the dust. The QX80 (formerly known as the QX56) is Infiniti’s answer to the large SUV crowd. Built on a truck frame and powered by a 400-hp V-8 with a seven-speed automatic this is one SUB that can accelerate quickly or tow a trailer and be comfortable with both tasks. Cheaper than its competitors, but just as comfortable and quiet, the QX80 is everything you would want in a luxury SUV and more.
While some critics complain that is feels heavy on the road, we applaud it for that as it gives you a solid feel while still being nimble enough to handle the turns without complaint. In our 2015 Infiniti QX80 Review we found the steering to be light and precise and the oversized brakes gave it good stopping power.
