Even though this is a big and impressive model, it uses a noted design and athletic stance. Each exterior part of this 209 inches car looks stylish and fabulous. That includes all parts from the wheels, the other exterior parts to the exterior paints.

Its front fascia has a dominant grille and modernly shaped LED headlights. Then, the standard on the upper trim levels is the 22-inch wheels that are looking greatly stylish.

This is the desire of luxury seekers. Because it uses the Monograph model, full of high-quality standard equipment and generous premium amenities, the new QX80 will acquire a mid-cycle facelift for the changes. That includes some small changes on the bodywork and slightly resized on the exterior.

The Monograph concept will root all the large future SUVs by the Japanese company. They introduced this platform in 2017 with an advanced interior and a bold look. Therefore, in 2022, it will shine on the big-size Infiniti QX80.

The company introduced the new paint jobs for the cabin: Sahara Stone and Truffle Brown. This design will use a lot of chromed details on the inside and outside. It will obviously bring out the luxurious ambiance.

Interior, Seating Capacity & Trunk Space

The interior of this car will continue with some improvements. The new cabin is enough to put this model above its rivals. The interior is full of luxury and high-quality features which also are very similar to the Lincoln Aviator.

However, the model QX80 is way more attractive. The cabin is highly impressive, and there will be three rows of seats. Both the legroom and the third-row are large, so there will be enough room for seven passengers.

The Infiniti QX80 presents 2 options: seven-seat and eight-seat configurations. The first two rows are lovely cushioned and spacious enough for taller passengers. The outward visibility to the front, sides, and rear will be obvious. Following its predecessor, the QX80 will keep the road noise out of the car.

The third row is enough for kids. Passengers can fold down the third-row seats slowly by pressing the button. There are heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and leather upholstery. A heated second-row seat and ventilated front seats are also available.

The cabin is full of open-pore wood trims, leather materials, semi-aniline leather seats, and chrome accents. It is full of high-quality standard equipment. Some of them are the tri-zone climate control, a 13-speaker premium Bose sound system, and the latest phone integrations.

The QX80 has 16.6ft3 cargo space behind its row, 49.6ft3 when these seats are folded. When the passenger folds all rear seats, it becomes 95.1ft3. That is one of QX80’s strengths amongst its rivals, as only a few luxury SUVs offer that big cargo space.

Features (Entertainment & Safety)

The entertainment features include 7-inch and 8-inch touch screens, navigation, satellite radio, HD Radio, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. There are four USB ports, Bluetooth, and a 13-speaker stereo. Other features include automatic climate control, push-button start, moonroof, remote start, and keyless entry.

Those standards are divided into 2 tough screens. The bottom touch screen is for the audio, climate control, and care settings. The top one is for navigation, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

Hi-tech and cares a lot about its passenger’s life, QX80 has cool driver-assistance aids. So, its safety ratings are truly great. Infiniti QX80 will come with advanced safety features. The driver assistance includes blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, a parking camera system, and pedestrian detection.

2022 Infiniti QX80 Engine Specs, Performance, & Fuel Economy

The upcoming Infiniti QX80 will ride on its reliable and potential V8 engine. It is a 5.6-liter V8 that puts out up to 400 hp and 414 lb-ft of torque.

The rear-wheel-drive is standard, but the owner may buy an optional all-wheel-drive system. It will slightly reduce the fuel economy, but it has benefits, including additional driving modes.

QX80 SUV can tow up to 8,500 pounds. It offers a seven-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is rated at only 14/20 mpg in the city/highway.

Some say a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 could be there for QX80. But, 570 hp may be too much for the base version. However, the QX80 could take on the other powerful SUVs in the market. Infiniti should consider any possibilities to give a better fuel economy on the QX80.
