5 reasons to buy the 2021 Infiniti QX80

1. Powerful V8

2021 Infiniti QX80 Review: RTB 1 | CarMax

The standard 5.6L V8 engine in the 2021 Infiniti QX80 delivers brawny performance with 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, this 2021 SUV is ready to haul your travel trailer or a pair of ATVs with an estimated towing capacity of 8,500 lbs.

The engine connects to a seven-speed automatic transmission that delivers smooth and swift gear changes for strong passing power on the highway. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the 2021 QX80, but four-wheel drive is available on all trims.

2. Refreshed trim lineup

2021 Infiniti QX80 Review: RTB 2 | CarMax

For the 2021 model year, Infiniti redesigned the QX80 lineup to include a new mid-range Premium Select trim and a high-end Sensory model to join the existing Luxe. The 2021 QX80 Premium Select features unique styling elements, including dark-chrome exterior trim, 22-inch wheels, and matte-brown cabin accents. Stepping up to the Sensory model adds chrome exterior details, quilted semi-aniline leather upholstery, and wood trim embellishments throughout the cabin, along with a hydraulically controlled suspension for a cushioned ride.

3. Skillful handling

For an SUV sporting such generous proportions, the QX80 provides nimble handling for around-town driving and longer trips. The 2021 model's steering is light and responsive and feels stable around turns, while the QX80 Sensory's hydraulically controlled suspension minimizes body roll. With 9.2 inches of ground clearance, the 2021 QX80 confidently traverses over rougher terrain. The available all-wheel drive system also enhances the SUV's performance in challenging weather conditions.

4. Roomy cabin

2021 Infiniti QX80 Review: RTB 4 | CarMax

The 2021 Infiniti QX80 is a spacious three-row SUV with a standard seven-passenger layout, but an optional bench seat is available to accommodate eight occupants. With 41 inches of second-row legroom and 40 inches of headroom, taller passengers will find comfort inside the cabin of the 2021 QX80. There is also ample room for cargo, whether you're carrying luggage, camping gear, or sporting equipment. Behind the third row, the 2021 QX80 boasts 16.6 cu-ft of cargo space, but that number expands to 49.6 cubes with the third row folded. Folding the second and third rows opens up 95.1 cu-ft of volume to haul large items when you need to.

5. Tech for everyone

2021 Infiniti QX80 Review: RTB 5 | CarMax

The 2021 QX80 features a standard Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, which includes a dual-display setup with eight-inch and seven-inch touchscreens. On the top display, you'll have easy access to the standard navigation system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integrations, while the lower screen displays vehicle features and climate controls. Your passengers will appreciate the available Wi-Fi hotspot in every trim of the 2021 QX80.

 There's also a rear-seat entertainment system featuring two eight-inch monitors in the second row in the Sensory trim. For your peace of mind, every 2021 QX80 comes standard with driver-assist features, including automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
