Infiniti just revealed its refreshed 2018 QX80 full-size luxury SUV. So, what has changed?
Since this is just a refresh of the design and not a complete re-do (the flagship SUV has been around in its basic design language since 2010), only a few things could be tweaked on the vehicle. Of those changes on the exterior, the most noticeable one is a reshaping of the headlights; they are narrower and located a little higher on the face of the ‘ute. The grille is also broader and flatter. It appears the hood has been flattened a bit to get rid of the vehicle’s pop-looking shape.
Underneath that resculpted façade is the same 5.6-liter V8 engine with 400 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque we’ve come familiar with on previous test drives. It’s a good, yet gas thirsty engine.
Walking around to the rear of the vehicle, the taillights have an all-new look.
Inside, optional headrest monitors grow 1-inch, up to 8-inches diagonally across. Interior coverings can now also be had in Wheat or Graphite upholstery.
Pricing has been released for the U.S. market. Infiniti has stated two-wheel drive models start at $65,745, while the all-wheel-drive version can be had for $68,845.
