The Infiniti QX56 delivers class-leading capabilities among the full-size luxury SUVs. The QX56 comes with one of the most powerful V8s in the class. It boasts the top tow rating. And it offers serious off-road capability, an area where Nissan has a lot of experience. The QX56 is based on the full-size Nissan Titan pickup and Armada SUV. The Infiniti QX56 is the perfect choice for pulling a boat or a horse trailer while hauling seven passengers in luxurious comfort. It offers seating for seven or eight and is rated to tow 8,900-9,000 pounds. Nissan's 5.6-liter 32-valve engine generates more torque than the V8s in the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. The Lexus LX470 and Toyota Sequoia can't compete with the Infiniti's towing capability. Out on the highway, the QX56 is smooth and quiet, benefiting from a four-wheel independent suspension and a smooth five-speed automatic. It feels responsive and sure-footed on winding roads. Yet it's capable off road; its four-wheel drive-system features a low range, and skid plates are available. It comes standard with latest in electronic stability control, traction control and ABS technology, all of which can help you maintain control in emergency handling situations, and the available all-wheel-drive system further improves handling stability in slippery conditions. The QX56 is as luxurious as the best of them. Its opulent cabin is lathered in leather and stuffed with technology. It comes standard with a navigation system, an optional feature on many vehicles. Introduced as an all-new model last year, the Infiniti QX56 gets more standard equipment for 2005, including its RearView camera, which projects a picture of what's behind the vehicle onto the navigation system monitor.
