And please read my review of the 2020 Infiniti QX80 here.
The 5,678-pound QX80 has a 400-horsepower, direct-injected 5.6-liter V-8 paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. With a maximum of 413 foot-pounds of torque at 4,000 rpm, the tow capacity is up to 8,500 pounds.
Fuel economy ratings from 2021 are 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway, using the recommended premium fuel. The 26-gallon should provide around 400 miles of driving.
All QX80 models have a four-wheel independent, double-wishbone suspension with rear automatic self-leveling. The hydraulic Body Motion Control System is available.
The wide-screen InTouch display updates the previous two screens that were stacked in the center of the instrument panel. The navigation system includes five years of free access to premium traffic and MapCare. A Wi-Fi hotspot to connect multiple devices is included, but a subscription is sold separately after the 30-day trial.
