The current generation Infiniti QX80 was launched in 2010, it was named QX56 and was a luxury version of the Nissan Patrol SUV. In the meantime the car was slightly refreshed and it was believed that it will now see a new generation, but the manufacturer made a second modernization, again putting the greatest emphasis on the exterior.
The facelift has brought new optic blocks for this model, which are now positioned higher than previously. Thus, modified taillights, a changed trunk door, a modernized radiator grille and bumpers of different design appeared.
There have been fewer changes in the passenger compartment. Now we have different illumination for the dashboard, there are new variants for decoration and upholstery, the cup holders are different, and the multimedia rear screen screens are diagonally larger by an inch.
Infiniti says it has worked on improving sound insulation, especially in the area of doors and dashboard.
Under the hood they generally did not intervene. Infiniti QX80 will still be offered with a 5.6-liter V8 that produces 405 horsepower and 560 Nm of torque. The gearbox is a seven-speed automatic.
Acceleration from 0-100 km/h is done in 6.5 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 210 km/h. The traction can be integral or on the rear axle.
Infiniti QX80 facelift production has already started at their plant in Japan. In North America, Asia and the Middle East, the first copies will be available for sale by the end of this year.
