Pros

If hauling up to eight people in opulence and towing up to 8,500 pounds are on your to-do list, the 2017 Infiniti QX80 is one of only a handful of vehicles available with such capability. In the age of car-based crossover SUVs, the new QX80 uses truck-type body-on-frame construction.

Cons

…value is your number-one priority and a luxury nameplate is your last. The new 2017 Nissan Armada is a virtual twin to the 2017 Infiniti QX80 and it costs about $20,000 less when equally equipped. That’s right. Virtually the same vehicle is available at your Nissan dealer starting at about $46,000.

What's New For 2017

Essentially unchanged for 2017, the new Infiniti QX80 keeps up with the competition with a new, very attractive, Mocha Almond exterior color, a Wheat interior treatment Infiniti describes as “low-contrast” and Trailer Sway Control for safer towing.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Expert Review

Luxurious as Beverly Hills, powerful as a Hollywood mogul, and more ruggedly handsome then Brad Pitt’s stunt double, the new 2017 Infiniti QX80 ranks in the uppermost tier of full-size SUVs. It’s big, spacious, capable and smooth as clouds with an artistic interior wrapped in genuine leather and wood trim. It offers 7- or 8-passenger seating in three rows, a long list of high-tech and convenience features and it’s powered by a big 5.6-liter V8 that makes 400 horsepower and big oil-company profits. Starting around $66,000, the new Infiniti QX80 competes with the Lexus LX, Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, BMW X5, Cadillac Escalade, Lincoln Navigator and its virtual twin, the new 2017 Nissan Armada. No slackers in this group; all are imposing, opulent and capable everywhere.

Driving the Used 2017 INFINITI QX80

From behind the wheel of the 2017 Infiniti QX80, you soon begin to feel invincible. With each mile you feel coddled, cradled and comfortable, but most of all, you feel invincible. This full-size SUV has a body-on-frame construction and a truck-type chassis, yet it handles and rides exceptionally well. The optional Hydraulic Body Motion Control helps, reducing body lean in corners and enhancing the ride. Although the QX80 weighs almost three tons, the 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 and its 7-speed automatic transmission move it with certainty but not without sacrifices in fuel economy. The big QX80 really thrives on the highway where the interior is extremely quiet and the ride defines “smooth.” In tighter spaces, such as the grocery-store parking lot, that size is problematical, but the Around View camera and front and rear parking sensors help describe the boundaries. All-wheel drive (AWD) offers high- and low-range modes.

Favorite Features

PREDICTIVE FORWARD-COLLISION WARNING
If a vehicle ahead of you stops suddenly, the QX80, which senses velocity and distance, delivers an alert so you can take appropriate action. However, unlike some more advanced systems that will intervene and brake for you if necessary, the new QX80 will not take action on its own.

ALL THE OTHER DRIVING AIDS/SAFETY FEATURES
Purchase the new QX80 with the Driver Assistance Package, and the SUV is chock-full of useful driving aids and safety features, including blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and the innovative Backup Collision Intervention that applies the brakes to avoid a collision when traveling in reverse, like backing out of that tight parking spot.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Interior

The 2017 Infiniti QX80 certainly delivers the utmost luxury buyers of high-end SUVs expect. Leather and wood are everywhere, and every surface, every material, every shape remind the owner that this is a premium vehicle. The analog clock, an Infiniti trademark, looks like a fine wristwatch. There’s seating for either seven or eight passengers in three rows; with seven the middle row has wonderful captain’s chairs, with eight it’s a folding bench. Either way, there’s generous space in all directions, and 3rd-row accommodations are suitable for most adults and have convenient power folding for when cargo is the priority.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Exterior

Nobody will overlook the new 2017 Infiniti QX80 as it stretches nearly 209 inches long and stands almost 76 inches tall. But size aside, this is a boldly styled, athletically proportioned SUV with a tough stance, old-school detailing and wearing enough chrome for four Bentleys and a Rolls. No apologies here. Up front is one of the boldest statements of a grille/headlight/hood layout that you’ll find. Along the front fenders are big chrome vents. Large windows provide good views while massive rear lights wrap around the corners and stretch well into the liftgate.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Standard Features

There are three trim levels to choose from: the base QX80 with rear-wheel drive (RWD), QX80 AWD (all-wheel drive) and QX80 AWD Limited. Standard equipment includes leather seating, navigation system, power liftgate, tri-zone climate control, moonroof, heated front seats and steering wheel, power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and Around View monitor with Moving Object Detection. Also included is a one-year complimentary subscription to the Infiniti Connection telematics system with concierge service and vehicle information sent to your phone, a 13-speaker Bose AM/FM/CD/DVD Premium Audio System with USB connection and Bluetooth streaming, and front and rear sonar parking sensors.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Options

The new 2017 QX80 Limited adds Welcome Lighting under stainless-steel side steps, Truffle Brown leather with silver stitching, Matte Finish Ash Wood accents and many additional trim and luxury appearance items. Most options are bundled into various packages: A Driver Assistance Package, which we recommend, has several safety features including blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning; the Theatre Package brings dual 7-inch rear-seat monitors, wireless headphone and remote control to keep the kids happy; a Tire and Wheel Package includes larger 22-inch 14-spoke wheels; and a Split Bench Seat Package increases seating capacity from seven to eight passengers.

Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Engine

Infiniti’s new QX80 is powered by an impressive 5.6-liter V8 that makes 400 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. Both RWD and AWD models have Hill Start Assist and Snow Mode to help you get moving when roads are slick. AWD models operate with a rear-drive bias but constantly adjust power between the front and rear wheels as necessary. All models feature a 7-speed automatic transmission with a manual-shift mode and downshift rev-matching. Towing capacity is a stout 8,500 pounds. One compromise to such a big and powerful SUV is fuel efficiency, or lack thereof. With RWD the EPA fuel-economy numbers are 14 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway, and with AWD those numbers fall to 13 mpg and 19 mpg.

5.6-liter V8
400 horsepower @ 5,800 rpm
413 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 14/20 mpg (RWD), 13/19 mpg (AWD)

Note: Due to changes in EPA testing to more effectively reflect real-world conditions, some 2017 models show slightly lower fuel-economy scores than their 2016 versions.

How Much Does the Used 2017 INFINITI QX80 Cost?

The 2017 Infiniti QX80 has a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting around $66,000 for a RWD model; adding AWD is roughly $3,000 more. Most option packages can increase the price by several thousand dollars, and a fully loaded Infiniti QX80 AWD Limited can be well over $80,000. We recommend the Driver Assistance Package and its safety enhancements. At its entry price, the QX80 is in line with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Range Rover Sport and Lincoln Navigator and undercuts the starting prices of the Cadillac Escalade and Lexus LX 570. Be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price to see what others in your area are paying for the 2017 Infiniti QX80. The new QX80's long-term resale value is expected to be good; better than those of the Lincoln or Cadillac, similar to that of the Mercedes but somewhat behind that of the segment leader, the Lexus LX.

"Pretty much a good full size SUV"

Feel safe, handling is very sporty, lots of power
Timing chain, Cat Converter/manifold design flaw
Other than design issues in combining the CAT with the Exhaust Manifold and not covering it in the warranty and second and third row seats that don't fold completely flat like the Navigator and the fact that Nisson pulled the recall on the timing chain, this is a really solid ride. Be prepared to spend $1600 for a headlight assembly and big bucks for most other parts or repairs done at the dealer. 6 lug rims and 22" rubber came with mine and it is limiting in what type of replacement tire can be used but it was part of a package. Basically this is the same as the Armada Platinum because it is built on the frame of a 3/4 Titan. This car is definitely designed more for long distance highway rides in absolute comfort than it is for hauling stuff inside. The 8500 towing capacity is exceptional and the tech package is really easy to use with some practice. Carpets in the rear cargo area could be more plush and the buyer should expect that in a car that costs upwards of 76K with options. Mine is used and purchased with 109K miles on it but so far I get 20 mpg on the highway at 70+ mph and 15 mpg average in city driving. Oil passages are narrow so using 0-20 or 5-30 full synthetic can help run cooler so mpg can be better. I got a deal on the 2011 but the mechanical issues with the CAT and timing chain were corrected beginning in the 2014 model year and if I had the funds I would have got that year. All of my CAT and timing chain issues have been corrected by the dealer or previous owner so I should have many years of trouble free driving.Read less

"Wonderful car/suv"

Styling, comfort, performance
really nothing
Love my 2017 QX80. Always wanted one! Found a 1 year old with 22,000 at Enterprise. Car is everything I ever wanted. Naysayers are simply wrong. Mileage is reasonable for what it is - 14-15 mpg in mix. Highway is 16-18, sometimes 18. Tech is great. Looks are subjective, but I have always liked it. Expect to keep it for a long, long time.

Very expensive to fix. Dealers will charge you tri
My truck is only 5 years old and the paint is pilling off starring on the roof above the windshield. Dealers will reap you off for mechanical fix. Bring to local mechanical shop first.

2016 Infiniti QX80

"A drivers vehicle"

Handles better than some cars
Cleaning the roof and rims
I have the 2016 QX80 Limited. Did i need to spend the extra $25k, YES! If your like me and want performance, style & the only one in the parking lot then this is the SUV. The exterior speaks for its self (I have the White \ Only 3 Choices in Limited)... The exterior has the only issue in my opinion, you need a step ladder to wash the roof. Interior: this comes Correct and not a single person that has been in or simply peeked inside could control their enthusiasm. (Again, i have a Limited - baseball glove style leather w/ hand stitching, real mohogandy wood & suede head liner. The front seats are like LazyBoy Chairs (1 1/2 of my arm lengths across from sitting in the drivers seat to mid passenger seat) One touch everything - voice control the rest. If you keep the windows closed the only thing you can hear is the radio or the roar of the motor/exhaust, all at your own discreastion. Mid row captains chairs that have heating options as well as climate controls and individual video monitors (optional video game hookup & sound cancelling head phones) In closing: this vehicle all there and they aren't and never have been the flavor of the Whats Now Trend and for that your happy to drive and resale/residual value holds up stronger than the others Always get all-weather matsRead less
