The new 2023 Infiniti QX80 full-size luxury SUV will go on sale next year. This model isn’t the fanciest or most high-tech model on the market, but it provides good value. Even with the entry-level trim, you’ll get a generous list of standard features. The QX80 is also a very spacious model that has a big cargo hold and 3-row seating.
The cabin is made of nice materials, and the design and technology will be updated finally. In addition, the new SUV gets some nice tech and safety updates for 2022. Expect also more safety features, including driver attention alert, front knee airbags, and second-row outboard seatbelt pre-tensioners.
2023 Infiniti QX80 Design
The 2023 Infiniti QX80 is an attractive SUV that comes with a refreshed look. Besides massive size, the new model also includes a large grille, muscular body lines, and big wheels. Thanks to all that, the QX80 has more imposing look than ever.
The size of this model is similar to the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. Moreover, it`s bigger than several entries like the BMW X7, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and the Lexus LX. As of the trims, the most favorite is a Premium Select trim that brings more dark chrome accents, giving it a moodier look.
The interior quality of the 2023 Infiniti QX80 is updated, and it leaves a more premium feel. Overall, the QX80 is three row SUVS that comes with a very roomy cabin. It can fit seven passengers comfortably. That said, this SUV also has a pretty good cargo space of 16.6 cubic feet behind the third row of seats and up to 95.1 cubic feet with all the back seats folded down.
In terms of technology, the QX80 comes with a new 12.3-inch infotainment system, Android Auto, wireless Apple CarPlay, and navigation with 3D maps. The standard safety features are also better and include blind-spot monitoring, full-speed adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and lane-departure prevention.
2023 Infiniti QX80 Powertrain
Like before, the 2023 Infiniti QX80 will be offered with sole engine option. Under the hood of the current model is a brawny 5.6-liter V8 linked to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
The engine produces 400 horsepower and can tow up to 8,500 pounds. As many other SUVs in this class, the QX80 rear-wheel drive is standard and 4-wheel drive is optional. The fuel economy of 14/20 mpg (RWD), 13/19 mpg (4WD) is unimpressive for this class.
Release Date, Price
The 2023 Infiniti QX80 will reportedly go on sale next year. If we can rely on previous releases, it will likely to be available for purchase in the fall of 2022. Besides minor exterior changes, the Infiniti QX80 will also get some improvements inside. The manufacturer will add more standard features on the entry-level model and through other trims.
Pricing is not yet available, but we expect it to be in range as before. The current base Luxe trim starts at $70,600, while the mid-range Premium Select trim is around $74,900. On the top is a Sensory trim that begins at $81,750. Most rivals in this class are in the same line like the Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and BMW X7.
