This three-row SUV boasts all the features a large family needs to travel around town or on the highway in comfort. For 2023, there are some exciting new features for you to explore. Why not browse our extensive online inventory or swing by our Jackson dealership to learn more about the QX80 from the experts at Herrin-Gear INFINITI?

What’s New in the 2023 INFINITI QX80?

One of the main changes to the QX80 for 2023 is in its infotainment system. Amazon Alexa is now available throughout the lineup, giving you a new option for carrying out voice commands. In addition, the lane departure warning feature now provides haptic feedback through the steering wheel to alert drivers more effectively.

Finally, the QX80 comes with complimentary scheduled maintenance for the first three years, including oil changes and tire rotations. All vehicles in the INFINITI lineup have benefited from this update for the latest model year.

QX80 Engine and Performance

If you think this three-row SUV with a possible capacity of eight people would be slow off the line, you obviously don’t know about the potent V-8 engine under the hood of the QX80. This unit churns out an impressive 400 horsepower and works with a seven-speed automatic transmission to provide punchy acceleration.

You can opt for either rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD) configurations. In RWD, the engine achieves 14 mpg on city roads and 20 mpg on the highway. These numbers drop by a mere one mpg, respectively, if you opt for 4WD instead.

This big SUV has a robust towing capacity and can tackle a trail or two, making it the ideal choice if you want to haul a camper out of town for the weekend. The QX80’s towing capacity is 8,500 pounds, and it can easily maneuver over rough ground thanks to its 9.2 inches of ground clearance. If you’ll be doing a lot of towing, the 4WD option will serve you well, especially if you’ll be traveling on trails.

QX80 Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The cabin’s standard setup features second-row captain’s chairs, giving you a maximum capacity of seven passengers. If you need an eighth seat, you can swap the captain’s chairs for a second-row bench seat to boost the capacity. The first two rows have plenty of headroom and legroom for adult passengers, while the third row is a good option for accommodating kids. All QX80s have leather upholstery, with the higher trims offering even more seating luxuries.

The QX80’s cabin provides plenty of flexibility for your cargo transportation needs. With a whole load of passengers, you’ll have about 16 cubic feet of storage space at the rear. That should be enough for a load of groceries or a few suitcases for your next vacation. If you need to carry more oversized items, you can fold down the rear row of seats to open up 49.6 cubic feet of space. With the two back rows folded flat, you’ll have a whopping 95.1 cubic feet of space.

QX80 Infotainment and Safety Tech

INFINITI upgraded the QX80’s infotainment system for the 2022 model year to include a 12.3-inch screen, which returns for the latest edition. Other standard features include a 13-speaker premium stereo, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and wireless device charging. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay ensure smartphone compatibility, and a navigation system is also included with each QX80.

You can upgrade the stereo to a 17-speaker system for added performance. In addition, if you want to give second-row passengers more control over what they watch or the music they listen to, you can add a rear-seat infotainment system. This system mounts two 8-inch screens on the back of the front seats for rear-seat passengers to use.

The QX80 is also well equipped when it comes to safety features. Maneuvering this full-sized SUV in and out of parking spots is made much easier by the standard parking sensors and surround-view parking camera, which gives you an aerial view of your vehicle.

The QX80 also has front collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking to help you avoid accidents. Driving on the highway is supported by adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. You can add adaptive pivoting headlights to ensure the best view of the road up ahead.

QX80 Pricing and Trims

If you buy the QX80, you’ll have three trims to choose from, the Luxe, Premium Select, and Sensory. The Luxe trim has an MSRP of $72,700, while the top Sensory trim starts at $84,350.

The base trim features leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. Added convenience is provided by keyless entry and push-button start. Upgrading to the Premium Select trim swaps the QX80’s standard 20-inch wheels for 22-inch rims. You also gain some unique exterior dark accents. Several luxuries come with the top trim, including quilted leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, and heated second-row seats. You’ll also get the rear-seat infotainment system and the larger stereo.

As you can see, there are many great reasons to buy the QX80 in 2023. Whether your family needs a comfortable three-row SUV for daily driving or recreational activities, the QX80 ticks all the boxes. It boasts a powerful engine, upscale cabin, plenty of cargo space, and enough entertainment technology to keep everyone happy.
