The brand’s flagship SUV has been around for a while, it is still competitive thanks to the recent redesign which clearly indicates that 2019 Infiniti QX80 won’t feature some more important changes. The current generation of this model is on the market for full eight years and a facelift came just recently. With this update, this rugged SUV became far more competitive, so it is hard to expect significant changes only a year later. Still, the company has prepared one completely new version, called 2019 Infiniti QX80 Limited. This one will come with a plenty of unique details and should be the biggest novelty for the next year. Expect new QX80 late in the year.
2019 Infiniti QX80 Changes
This full-size SUV has been updated recently, so we don’t expect more important changes for the 2019 Infiniti QX80. We have seen a lot of novelties last year and most of them are in visual aspect. There is a completely new front end, which comes with a bunch of new parts, including new headlights, a new hood, grille, bummer etc. Other areas suffered as well, so there are new taillights, rear bumper, wheels designs and much more. For the next year, the biggest novelty should be a new 2019 Infiniti QX80 Limited. This will be a special version of the SUV, which won’t be too much different compared to the base model in terms of mechanics. On the other side, we will see a bunch of new visual details. It will come in a unique grey finish exclusively, as well as with unique 22-inch wheels and several other details.
The new Limited edition will include changes on the inside as well. We are about to see an attractive two-tone color approach, as well as a pretty unique list of standard equipment and various additional details. Other than that, 2019 Infiniti QX80 interior should come in the same way. We are about to see the same cabin layout, which features a capacity for seven passengers. One of the model’s strongest points is cargo space, which is more spacious than most of the competitors. When the second and third rows of seating fold down, total capacity goes all away up to 95 cubic feet.
In terms of technical features, this model lacks compared to the competition. It is the aspect where 2019 Infiniti QX80 will show its real age, despite the recent facelift. Base models will feature an 8-inch touchscreen, which comes with a little bit outdated infotainment system. Also, there is a 13-speaker Bose audio system, tri-zone automatic climate control and much more. Higher trims add things like 15-inch Bose audio system, Wi-Fi hotspot, rear-seat entertainment system and much more.
Which safety features will be available in 2019 Infiniti QX80?
In terms of safety, base 2019 Infiniti QX80 models will come with a 360-degree camera and parking sensors only. On the other side, things like blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and other things will be optional.
2019 Infiniti QX80 Engine
A familiar 5.6-liter V8 gasoline engine will continue without bigger changes in the next year. This large engine has a max output of 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. It comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to rear wheels. AWD is available as an option. Such a huge amount of power provides impressive acceleration numbers, so the 2019 Infiniti QX80 will need only about 6 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. On the other side, don’t expect some spectacular fuel economy. This SUV returns around 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway.
When will 2019 Infiniti QX80 arrive?
We expect to see the new version late in the year, probably in December. The 2019 Infiniti QX80 price will remain at the same level, which means in a range between 64.000 and 68.000 dollars.
