The high and wide hood adds visual lift of 2021 Infiniti QX80, while the hood's sharp lines and front fenders add to the commanding presence.

With a design inspired by a strong athletic face, the lower grille has an angular chrome accent strip that highlights the squared-off jawline of the new front fascia. The high and wide hood adds visual lift, while the hood's sharp lines and front fenders add to the commanding presence. The chrome strip above the taillight finisher integrates with the taillight’s backup light shape for a wide and prestigious look. Enter a roomy interior crafted around touch, sight, and sound. Modern materials and rich textures create a sophisticated space of warmth and elegance.

Leather-appointed seats are specially treated to provide the softest touch and breathability for comfort in heat or cold, while noise-insulating glass helps ensure peace and serenity. Heated first-row seats feature power adjustments and available cooling. Second-row passengers enjoy abundant leg room in captain's chairs with optional heating, or an available bench seat to accommodate up to eight. For third-row passengers, comfort is found in the shaped contours of seats that power-recline.

The available Hydraulic Body Motion Control system also helps isolate the cabin from irregular road surfaces, so vertical motion is reduced over bumps and potholes and passengers can enjoy a smoother ride. Road conditions can be unpredictable, so the QX80 automatically adjusts for better traction. The available All-Mode 4WD monitors and tunes torque between front and rear wheels to help maintain grip on rainy or snowy roads. Individually selectable 4H and 4L modes also let you make the choice yourself: normal-speed driving and extra traction or maximum traction and full power.

QX80’s engine was built to be both powerful and efficient. The 5.6-liter V8 engine generates up to 400 horsepower, 413 lb.-ft of torque, and delivers an impressive up to 8,500 lb. towing capacity. QX80 is ready to take you nearly anyway you want to go. Infiniti’s standard Forward Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection not only measures the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you as well as the speed of both vehicles it now also may help detect pedestrians, helping the driver identify a potential frontal collision. This system works by providing an audible and visual warning. If the brakes are not engaged, they can be partially applied, even fully braking if necessary.
