INFINITI QX56


The Infiniti QX56 is the relatively rare example of a full-size luxury SUV built with truck-based, body-on-frame engineering. Offered with rear- or four-wheel drive, its platform was derived from the Nissan Armada SUV. It was the first Infiniti built in America, at a manufacturing facility in Canton, Miss. Available in seven- or eight-seat configurations, the QX56 is best suited for buyers with people-hauling and towing needs. Its primary competitors are the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. Even though the QX56's name was derived from its 5.6-liter V-8 engine, it was renamed QX80 for the 2014 model year and soldiered on essentially unchanged, including the 5.6-liter engine, until a 2018-model-year restyling.

2011–13 QX56


Growing slightly larger and lower, the redesigned QX56 doubled down on its controversial design language for 2011. Gasoline direct injection increased the 5.6-liter V-8's output to 400 horsepower. Combined with better aerodynamics and a new seven-speed automatic transmission, which replaced a five-speed automatic, estimated combined gas mileage improved by 2 mpg. A new, more rigid frame helped reduce vibration and improve ride quality. Production moved to Japan.

Previous generation

2004–10 QX56


The QX56 was hailed for a quiet ride on-road, while its truck-based platform gave the 4WD version respectable off-road capability. With 315 hp from its V-8 engine, the QX56 offered brisk acceleration at the expense of gas mileage. A well-appointed interior was marred by confusing controls and cheap-looking plastic pieces, but that was improved in a 2008 model year refresh.
