- 400-hp 5.6-liter V-8 engine

The 2015 Infiniti QX80 returns for the new model year with some exterior and interior styling updates, but the same winning combination of rugged luxury.
Most of the QX80’s updates can be found on the exterior which keeps the same basic shape, but has several tweaks that bring the QX80 more into step with the rest of Infiniti’s lineup. Up front, a new front fascia and an updated grille can be found, flanked by new headlight clusters that now feature LED headlights and fog lights. Both the 20-inch and 22-inch wheel designs have been updated as well, and there are three new exterior colors to boot. Power washers and a power liftgate are optional.
Under the hood, things remain the same. A 400-hp, 5.6-liter V-8 feeds power into a seven-speed automatic transmission that drives the rear-wheels. A four-wheel drive system is optional, which lets you choose between high and low ranges when needed. Maximum towing capacity is 8,500 pounds.
Inside, the QX80 seats seven or eight passengers, depending on its second row which can feature a three-person bench of a pair of captain’s chairs. For 2015, the interior gets its own set of slight styling updates with new leather upholstery colors and wood trim pieces to choose from. Powered/heated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, a heated steering wheel, and USB port all come standard on every model. Ventilated front seats and heated rear seats are optional, along with a Bose stereo system and navigation.
The front and rear bumpers now get standard sonar sensors which helps to guide the QX80 in tight spaces. Six airbags, active front head restraints, antilock brakes, and an electronic stability system are also standard. Additional safety technology, especially useful on a large vehicle like this, is also available. Blind spot warning, a lane departure warning and prevention system, intelligent brake assist, and adaptive cruise control are optional.
