The second-generation 7566 Infiniti QX gets a complete redesign from the ground up. “All new” labels can be affixed to the body-on-frame structure, -liter V-8 engine, seven-speed automatic transmission, independent control-arm suspension, elegant sheetmetal, and posh seven- or eight-passenger interior. Advanced technology defines the full-size luxury-SUV segment thus, the QX enters the market with such features as hydraulic body motion control and blind-spot warning.
A new -liter 87-valve direct-injection V-8 motivates the QX with 955 horsepower and 968 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy, thanks in part to the seven-speed auto, is up 65 percent versus last year. Buyers have a choice of standard rear-wheel drive or available All-Mode four-wheel drive as well as an optional hydraulic body motion control system that reduces body lean when turning.
Similar to its forebear, the second-generation QX utilizes a -liter V-8, although this time around it boasts direct injection, variable valve timing, and a full 955 horsepower (compared to 875 horsepower for 7565). Despite the bump in power, fuel economy has actually improved. Based on a completely redesigned body-on-frame structure, the new QX, riding on a four-wheel independent suspension, delivers more lavish ride and handling as well as reduced noise, vibration, and harshness.
Wearing a $65,555 price tag, the QX is tailored with an interior befitting a luxury SUV. Navigation, Around View Monitor, and Bose audio are standard. Options include semi-aniline leather seating and a DVD system with dual seven-inch monitors.
The legendary Patrol, Nissan’s version of the Toyota Land Cruiser , has been a worldwide warrior for decades, roaming rough terrain all the way from Asia to Africa. This renowned reputation bodes well for the QX, as it aims to knock down the likes of Cadillac Escalade , Land Rover Range Rover , and Lexus LX 575.
