After a name change last year (from QX56), the QX80 luxury SUV returns for 2015 with a face-lifted exterior and interior, innovative safety features that include Predictive Forward Collision Warning, and a new top-line trim: the QX80 Limited.
For 2014 the major news is that the Infiniti QX80 is the vehicle formerly known as the QX56. The only other change is that the advanced Backup Collision Intervention system is added to the Technology Package.
About Infiniti QX80
The 2016 Infiniti QX80 ranks in the uppermost tier of full-size SUVs; it’s big, spacious, capable, smooth as clouds, luxurious as a weekend in Monaco, powerful as a connected politician. It offers 7- or 8-passenger seating in three rows, has every technological feature and convenience imaginable, and competes with the Lexus LX, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Range Rover Sport, Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. No slackers, these; all are giant on the outside, posh on the inside, capable everywhere. This does not come for pocket change; a starting price around $65,000 and a 5.6-liter V8 that makes 400 horsepower but uses a lot of gas doing it can dent the monthly cash flow. But, at this level, that’s just the price of entry.
"I just bought new 2015 QX80, but the brake paddle makes very noticeable noise, like squishy noise. That makes me feel very uncomfortable. I took it to the dealer after I bought it two weeks they said that is normal because the technology. That doesn't make sense to me. I had 2010 QX56 didn't had that issue. Technology suppose makes car better not worse. I called Infiniti consumer service. They have no Idea what I am talking about. Please don't leave me hanging here. Terrible service especially when you spent $75,000.00."
"The vehicle was a 10/10 for the first 10K. Now has developed a clicking in the brake pedal and also a humming noise when braking. Dealers have looked twice and have not been able to fix it. They claim this is the way it is and Infinity does not recommend a replacement of any parts. 75K vehicle and now this is what we get.
Not high quality and not acceptable warranty service."
"i purchased the fully loaded "tech" version @ almost 82,000.00 It's a nice vehicle, but after owning it for 3 mos., I feel it's overpriced. Admittedly we were enticed by the "hi tech, glitz, etc. features upon which we made our purchase decision. There were several service issues after purchase as well that you would NOT expect in a vehicle of this level which took over a week to repair due to the "waiting for parts" excuse. The Expedition or Navigator is a MUCH better value and more comfortable."
