Current Model
The QX80 large SUV has a plush, luxurious, and quiet interior. We liked the supple ride but found this big barge to be ungainly, with cumbersome handling in everyday driving, though it was ultimately secure in emergency maneuvers.
The seven-speed automatic and 400-hp, 5.6-liter V8 provide smooth and strong performance, but it chugs premium fuel and returned just 15 mpg overall. The tall step-up to the cabin makes climbing in or out an ungracious affair. Cargo volume is plentiful, and the small, power-folding third-row seat comes in handy to carry two kids. The Nissan Armada is essentially the same vehicle but costs less. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection are standard. A rear-seat reminder system, lane departure warning, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic warning are standard on all trim lines for the 2020 model year. For 2021 lane keeping assistance and active blind spot are standard.

2014-2020
2014 Redesign Year
Infiniti changed the QX56 name to QX80 from 2014 onward. With the 2011 redesign, the big Infiniti moved to a new platform. It also became a plush luxury liner with a quiet, well-equipped cabin and a supple, steady ride.
However, its high step-in, ungainly handling, and fuel economy of just 15 mpg overall are detriments. Standard safety features include stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes. Options include blind-spot warning, adaptive cruise control with automatic braking and lane-departure warning.  Optional for 2014 is Infiniti's Backup Collision Intervention, which emits audible and visible warnings when objects are detected behind the vehicle during reversing maneuvers. The system can also stop the Infiniti to prevent collisions.
