The 2024 INFINITI QX80 Is Signaling a New Design Language for INFINITI

February 13th, 2023 by

The INFINITI QX80, one of the oldest vehicles currently in Infiniti’s lineup, is signaling an exciting new era for the luxury car manufacturer and is set to make an impact in 2024. This full-size luxury SUV has been around for nearly a decade and is starting to show its age. There was a major refresh of the QX80 in 2018, with major updates to the exterior design, tech features, and driving dynamics.

For 2022, the QX80 was the subject of a tech overhaul, with attempts to keep the luxury SUV relevant in a rapidly changing market. Despite these updates, the QX80 was still in need of a significant redesign to better differentiate it from the Nissan Armada, with which it shares too many similarities.

The all-new 2024 INFINITI QX80 is poised to be the vehicle to bridge the gap with a new design language that will characterize INFINITI vehicles in the future. This is a big step for the automaker, as it signals a departure from its conventional design language to something more modern and edgy. Of course, this company overhaul will be followed by an onslaught of new electric vehicles (EVs) that will establish INFINITI as a major player in the ever-growing EV market.

The updated QX80 also marks a shift in brand messaging, targeting a more affluent demographic. The company’s marketing team has announced an updated dealership identity, which will be presented to retailers as a suggestion and won’t be mandatory for them to adopt. This will help INFINITI differentiate itself from its competitors and give the company a greater sense of prestige and sophistication. Here’s your inside scoop from Herrin-Gear INFINITI on what’s in store for INFINITI in the coming years. Stay tuned.

Exterior Redesign

It’s hard to tell what this departure exactly means in terms of the actual design. The exterior is the best indicator, and here we can expect to see Infiniti’s designers taking a more refined approach, eschewing the flashy and aggressive styling of previous models in favor of a more elegant and sophisticated look.

Some sources speculate the vehicle will embrace a unibody-style construction, while others suggest an all-new platform with a distinct look. While it’s unclear exactly what the new exterior design will be, it’s safe to say that INFINITI is serious about making a statement with its latest flagship vehicle.

Interior Changes

The current generation of the INFINITI QX80 has received a lot of criticism for its interior quality, which despite being good, is too closely akin to that of the Armada. This is why many hope for a completely new cabin design with modern aesthetics and much finer materials in the 2024 INFINITI QX80. The cabin should be equipped with many of the latest technology features, such as massive infotainment and instrument cluster screens, new connectivity features, and advanced driver-assistance systems.

The interior will also most likely feature a three-row layout with space for eight passengers. However, it’s expected to be outfitted with even more premium materials and technologies. These could include new upholstery and even more interior space if the new platform proves true. Consequently, the QX80 could become one of the class-leading SUVs in terms of comfort.

Aging V-8 Gets an Upgrade

Under the hood, it’s expected that INFINITI will ditch the aging 5.6-liter V-8 engine after a decent long run, replacing it with a more efficient and powerful powertrain. Options for this new engine are still being speculated upon, with some rumors suggesting a hybrid powertrain while others suggest a twin-turbo engine.

Whatever option INFINITI chooses to go with, one thing is for sure: the new QX80 will be more powerful and fuel-efficient than ever before. You can also expect more torque thanks to the new powertrain, allowing for more convenience when hauling passengers or trailer loads. Even though the 400-horsepower V-8 is a decent powerplant, the new QX80 will have plenty more oomph.

Release Date and Price

The INFINITI QX80 is expected to be unveiled late in 2023, with a sale date scheduled for early 2024. Pricing should start at around $71,000, but this will depend on your options. With its offering of modern technology, luxury materials, and refined exterior design, the INFINITI QX80 is sure to be a hit in the SUV market.

What the Future Holds

The 2024 QX80 is an exciting vehicle for the auto industry, and it’s a sign of things to come for this automaker. Not only is it a major design statement, but it’s also signaling a shift toward more efficient and powerful mills. The unveiling of the QX80 is just the beginning of Infiniti’s makeover, and we can’t wait to get the inside scoop on what’s in store for the company in the coming years.

As we journey into the electric age, INFINITI is serious about keeping up with the competition and offering drivers a reliable and luxurious SUV with electric power. We can only wait and see how this new look and feel will influence future models, but one thing is clear: the future of INFINITI looks bright. Stay tuned for more updates as the changes roll out.

The introduction of the new 2024 INFINITI QX80 is an exciting time for both car enthusiasts and investors alike. Not only does it signal a departure from the norm for the company’s signature style, but it also brings with it plenty of exciting new changes. With its exterior redesign, an entirely new interior, and a much more powerful and efficient engine, the QX80 is sure to make waves in the SUV market and help INFINITI achieve its desired brand transformation.
