The upcoming 2019 Infiniti QX80 is massive and imposing. It is also powerful, luxurious, and rugged at the same time. Simply put, this SUV has all the features every SUV aficionado looks for. This is a capable and spacious vehicle, with an exciting exterior look and stylish interior wrapped in genuine wood trim and leather.
Just like the previous variants, the 2019 edition will also sport a mighty engine under the hood. This is going to be a beastly 5.6-liter V8, which will spend a lot of gas but also ensure the QX80 leaves its competition behind. And, when it comes to the competition, it will square off against the Lincoln Navigator, BMW X5, and the Lexus LX 570.
2019 Infiniti QX80 – Exterior look, Design and Updates
Due to its size and imposing stance, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 is surely going to be an impressive sight on the roads and highways. This SUV is almost 209 inches long and around 77 inches tall, which makes it one of the biggest models on the market.
However, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 is not all about size, it is also about style too. What we will see is a vehicle that sports a fairly bold styling, athletic touches, and a very muscular, tough stance. We will also see a perfect mix of old-school details and modern, chrome ones. In the front, there will be a monstrous grille, with sleek headlights, and a swept-back hood.
To complete the look, the Japanese engineers have decided to implement new chrome vents and redesigned front fenders. In the back, there will be a revamped lift gate and new rear lights.
Interior Design, Styling and Features
Inside, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 is as impressive as it is on the outside. This is, after all, a high-end SUV, and for a good reason. Those looking for luxury and opulence will find an abundance of it. The interior will be full of wood and leather, as well as other exotic materials, including chrome. Of course, the QX80 will not only offer plenty of class but also room too.
The seats are going to be fully adjustable, covered in natural leather, and feature the heating/cooling function. In the tech department, there will be no surprises, given how the last year’s edition was among the most advanced SUVs in the world. We should expect a set of 7-inch seat monitors, a 13-speaker BOSE audio system, A Driver Assistance Package, which features a bevy safety measures, Bluetooth, and more.
Engine Specs and Performance
For its power, the 2019 Infiniti QX80 will rely on a single engine variant. This is going to be an extremely capable 5.6-liter V8, which outputs 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. With it, the QX80 will reach a top speed of 113 mph and go from 0 to 62 mph in 6.2 seconds.
While offering plenty of power, this engine will also offer a not-so-impressive EPA rating of 13/19 mpg. The engine will come mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission and either an all-wheel or a rear-wheel drive.
