For buyers of upscale SUVs who are unconcerned by fuel efficiency, the Infiniti QX56 won't disappoint.

Introduction

We've had a few years to get used to the design of the Infiniti QX56, but the rolling curves and slopes of its sheetmetal continue to elicit love-it-or-hate-it reactions from buyers. But the big SUV's design might not even matter for those who want a large luxury SUV that still retains some off-road capabilities.

As other SUVs swap out performance for fuel efficiency, the 5,500-pound QX56 sticks to a 5.6-liter V8 that churns out 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission, the Infiniti is both powerful and quick, towing up to 8,500 pounds and going from 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds. Expect 14 mph city and 20 mpg highway.

Offered with rear- or four-wheel drive, the QX's off-road capability -- while limited -- is better than much of the competition. This results, though, in a stiffer ride than most luxury shoppers expect.

The Infiniti's cabin is luxuriously-appointed and roomy, especially in the first two rows. While the 60/40 split bench in the third-row is tight on legroom, it does have a quick power-folding feature that's new for 2013. Another addition this year is an around-view monitor that combines images from four different cameras to create a bird's-eye view from the QX56.
