The 2019 Infiniti QX80 offers a compelling blend of luxury and capability

Infiniti’s full-size QX80 SUV comes with a 400-horsepower V8 engine, three rows of seats for up to eight people, and cargo capacity ranging from 16.6 cubic feet to 95.1 cubic feet. The QX80 offers 49.6 cubic feet of cargo space when the third-row seat is folded down.

The stout 5.6-liter V8 can tow up to 8,500 pounds but also averages an EPA-estimated 15-16 mpg in combined driving, with the optional four-wheel-drive (4WD) system producing the lower rating. An available body motion control system helps to stabilize the QX80’s ride and handling. Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See Various factors may impact towing capacity, including weight of passengers, cargo, and options/accessories.

Changes for the 2019 Infiniti QX80 include new Luxe and Limited trim levels, and the SUV now includes forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking as standard equipment. Other driving aids like lane keeping assistance, blind-spot warning, and adaptive cruise control are optional.

An 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system offers access to subscription-based connected services and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and you can get a camera-based rearview mirror for this SUV. However, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone connectivity isn’t available. Wi-Fi hotspots require a data plan to activate and may also require a compatible device. See the owner's manual or manufacturer website for more information.

5 reasons to buy the 2019 Infiniti QX80

What We Like

On-road athleticism: For a large, heavy SUV, the Infiniti QX80 handles remarkably well on pavement. The trick is to get the available body motion control system, which makes the SUV feel more stable on curves and over uneven pavement. Still, the QX80’s combination of clear outward visibility, light steering at lower speeds, stout brakes, and a powerful V8 engine all contribute to the Infiniti’s on-road athleticism.

Off-road capability: Since the Infiniti QX80 is based on the Nissan Patrol, which is sold in other parts of the world as a Toyota Land Cruiser alternative, it offers significant off-roading capability right out of the box. Wheel articulation impresses, and the QX80’s 4WD system offers rear-wheel drive, automatic 4WD, and permanent 4WD settings, including a low range for when the going gets really tough.

Competitive tow rating: Like other full-size SUVs, the Infiniti QX80 can tow a significant amount of weight. When properly equipped, this SUV can handle a trailer weighing up to 8,500 pounds. Some of the QX80’s rivals can do better, and some are not quite as capable. No matter how you measure it, this Infiniti’s tow capacity is competitive.

What Needs Improvement

Infotainment system: Infiniti calls the QX80’s 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system InTouch, but it's out of touch with its lack of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto support. Those smartphone connectivity platforms are must-haves for most luxury-SUV buyers. So, while you can subscribe to connected services and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot,

you cannot run your phone’s apps through the system. In addition, the InTouch system’s voice recognition technology leaves much to be desired.
