Unveiling the 2025 Infiniti QX80 marks the transition from concept to reality, bringing forth a blend of opulence and functionality in the realm of full-size SUVs. Drawing inspiration from the previously revealed Infiniti QX Monograph concept, this new offering boasts a striking resemblance with its vertically-oriented corner vents, sleek lights surrounding the imposing grille, and the sleek black roof seamlessly integrated with flush door handles. However, the QX80 isn’t just a concept; it’s a tangible representation of luxury and innovation.

Embracing an “anti-wedge” profile that Infiniti calls it, the QX80 stands tall and proud, stretching 17.5 feet from nose to tail with a robust body mounted on a traditional frame. Infiniti emphasizes its upright stature, a departure from the prevailing trend, with a nearly flat hood extending forward, enhancing its commanding presence on the road.

The exterior’s substantial dimensions translate into generous interior space. While precise figures are yet to be disclosed, the QX80 promises ample room for passengers, with a significant increase in cargo space behind the second and third-row seats compared to its predecessor. The interior exudes luxury, featuring premium materials such as leather, wood, and aluminum, especially in the range-topping Autograph trim. The cockpit showcases a sophisticated design with digital instrumentation, highlighted by dual 14.3-inch display screens dominating the dashboard. Additionally, a 9.0-inch screen at the front of the center console serves as the central hub for controlling various functions, including climate settings and drive modes.

Innovation takes center stage with an array of advanced technology features. The QX80 boasts an assortment of cameras providing comprehensive views both inside and outside the vehicle, including unique perspectives like the Front Wide View and Invisible Hood view, enhancing safety and convenience. Moreover, the integration of Biometric Cooling and heated/cooled seats ensures optimal comfort for all occupants, even extending to the third-row passengers. Also, not only do the front seats get massaging but it can be extended to the second row captain’s chairs. Entertainment is elevated with a premium Klipsch audio system, offering an immersive listening experience.

Under the hood, the QX80 undergoes a significant transformation, bidding farewell to the old V-8 engine in favor of a potent twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine generating 450 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain delivers exhilarating performance while maintaining efficiency. The addition of five drive modes caters to diverse driving preferences, further enhancing the driving experience.

An all-new suspension setup featuring an available air suspension and Dynamic Digital Suspension enhance ride quality and enable better aerodynamics at higher speeds by lowering 1.2 inches at highway speeds, and allowing easy ingress and egress by lowering 2.8 inches when parked for an easy access level. An off-roading setting raises the suspension by 2.4 inches above normal ride height.

Available in four trims: Pure, Luxe, Sensory, and Autograph, the 2025 Infiniti QX80 offers a range of options to suit various tastes and preferences. While the pricing reflects a notable increase compared to its predecessor, the QX80 competes favorably within its segment, offering a compelling blend of luxury, performance, and innovation.

The 2025 Infiniti QX80 looks to set a new benchmark for full-size SUVs, ushering in a new era of luxury, sophistication, and technological advancement. With its bold design, lavish interior, and cutting-edge features, it epitomizes the epitome of automotive excellence, redefining the standards in its class.

Pricing has increased and landed at $84,445 for the base Pure RWD model and goes up to $112,590 for the top Autograph AWD trim for when it goes on sale late summer 2024.
