Have a big SUV or have a big SUV – these are the questions that trouble a large portion of the American clientele since gasoline prices have been toned down from the crisis days. Fortunately, you have a big pool to chose from.
You can have lots of models on the US market fitting the hulking luxury SUV criteria – for example the GMC Yukon Denali. Oh, wait, we’re not talking about an American SUV, rather than a Japanese model. The Infiniti Qx80 is a good choice if you want to stand out in the crowd – or rather the Mall parking. This is of course the flagship sports utility vehicle from the Japanese automaker – which has been updated for the model year changeover.
The 2017 Infiniti QX80 starts from $63,850 – you add the $995 destination – when selecting the base trim level, which on its own has perks such as an automatic self-leveling suspension at the rear, 20-inch wheels, power liftgate, a Class IV tow hitch, and LED headlights with LED fog lamps. The entry-level all wheel drive model will set you back $66,950 and the most Qx80 money can buy is $89,450. No matter the choice, the Japanese brand offers a 5.6-liter naturally aspirated V8 with 400 horsepower sent to the wheels via a seven-speed automatic transmission and all wheel drive models will pack a computer-controlled transfer case with Auto, 4H(igh), and 4L(ow) settings.
