Overview

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 is the Japanese marque’s flagship SUV. After a comprehensive redesign last year, the 2019 model year introduces a new range-topping Limited model, costing almost $25,000 more than the base Luxe version.

What's New for 2019

Every QX80 now comes with forward automatic emergency braking, incorporating pedestrian detection and predictive collision warning. However, the big news is the introduction of the Limited model, with all-wheel drive and the contents from four extra-cost packages on the Luxe as standard equipment.

INFINITI QX80

Choosing Your INFINITI QX80

Measuring 210 inches in length and almost 76 inches in height, the QX80 can accommodate up to eight passengers. The second row hosts a pair of tip-up captain’s chairs, which can be swapped for a 60/40-split bench seat for $250.

Regardless of its seating configuration, every INFINITI is powered by a 5.6-liter V8 gas engine, feeding 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque through a seven-speed automatic transmission. EPA-estimated fuel economy checks in at 14 miles per gallon city, 20 mpg highway, and 16 combined with rear-wheel drive, or 13/19/15 mpg (city/highway/combined) with four-wheel drive.

While two-wheel-drive models apply this power to the rear wheels, four-wheel-drive versions adjust power between the front and rear axles according to either ambient conditions or driver-controlled settings. There are also high and low-range 4WD functions, while a limited slip braking system can redistribute torque from a spinning wheel to the other three for optimal traction.

INFINITI offers the 2019 QX80 in two trims:

INFINITI QX80

Luxe

The Luxe trim starts at $66,395 (all prices include the $1,295 destination charge), or $69,495 with four-wheel drive. Apart from the addition of INFINITI’s All-mode 4WD system, these two models are otherwise identical. That means every QX80 receives an automatically leveling rear suspension, and is capable of towing up to 8,500 pounds. Front and rear sonar is combined with four wide-angle cameras to create a 360-degree overview of the vehicle’s surroundings, with the ability to detect and warn the driver about moving objects.

Six options packages are available on Luxe, including the Split Bench Seat Package ($250) and a 22-inch Tire and Wheel Package ($2,800) that brings all-season performance tires. The ProAssist Package ($2,550) is required to get the upgraded tires and wheels. It adds blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, distance control assist, lane departure warning and prevention, and automatic emergency braking.

It’s possible to keep the kids quiet(er) with the Theater Package ($2,150), which adds twin eight-inch color monitors to the rear seats with wireless headphones, a wireless remote control, a 120-volt outlet, and HDMI and USB inputs. The ProActive Package ($3,800) bundles bundles hydraulic body motion control and adaptive front lights with speed-sensitive power steering, headlight washers, and a smart rearview mirror. Finally, the Sensory Package ($2,200) includes a 15-speaker Bose sound system, a choice between two exclusive interior trims, leather seating, a stitched and leather-wrapped horn pad, an advanced climate control system, heated second-row seats, chrome mirror caps, second-row footwell lights, and second-row seats that you can remotely tip up.

INFINITI QX80

Limited

The QX80 Limited is priced from $91,095. It’s distinguished visually by dark 22-inch wheels, stainless steel running board caps, and satin chrome exterior trim, roof rails, and cross bars. The cabin gains matte silver ash wood trim, while the seats are clad in two-tone leather with embossed Limited badges alongside quilting and contrast piping. There’s suede headlining and leather grab handles, while the INFINITI logo appears in the illuminated kick plates and below the running board welcome lighting.

More importantly, all of the features from the ProAssist, ProActive, Sensory, and Theather Packages from the Luxe trim are included on the Limited as standard. Consequently, there are no other packages offered, though notable options include Wi-Fi ($465) and a wireless smartphone charger ($250). Black, gray, and white paint are a $500 option on Limited QX80 models.

CarsDirect Tip

Given the considerable price hike over Luxe models, it’s hard to recommend the Limited. Buyers should choose the more affordable 2019 INFINITI QX80 and add any option packs they feel are important, such as the ProAssist Package that adds a number of welcome safety improvements.

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 may bear a Japanese badge, but it’s as American as they come. A muscular V8, king-sized comfort, and a casual disregard for fuel efficiency make a charming – albeit aging – package.

Best Value

The QX80’s already comfortable interior can be swaddled in quilted Nappa leather, and the Limited trim includes open-pore wood and a rear-seat entertainment system. But prices for a Limited start past $90,000, and most of the options can be added à-la-carte, so the base Luxe trim is the place to look for value.

Base models don't lack luxury, coming standard with 20-inch wheels, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and navigation. For $3,100, four-wheel drive is an easy and sensible addition. Automatic emergency braking is standard, but INFINITI also makes it easy to add a suite of remaining safety tech with the ProAssist Package.

  • Model: 2019 INFINITI QX80 Luxe 4WD
  • Engine: 5.6-liter V8
  • Output: 400 hp / 413 lb-ft
  • Transmission:Seven-speed automatic
  • Drivetrain:Four-wheel drive
  • MPG:13 City / 19 Hwy
  • Options: ProAssist Package ($2,550, backup collision intervention, blind-spot monitoring, blind-spot intervention, blind-spot warning and prevention, lane departure warning and prevention, adaptive cruise control, distance control assist, Safety Shield steering-wheel switch)
  • Base Price:$69,495 (including the $1,295 destination fee)
  • Best Value Price:$72,045

Performance

INFINITI QX80

The QX80 is an old-fashioned, unsophisticated cruiser. The chunky V8 produces plenty of power, and the seven-speed automatic transmission is competent and predictable. A two-speed transfer case controls all-wheel-drive versions, which lends some extra confidence on rough tracks. Towing capacity is an impressive 8,500 pounds, which is plenty for a camper or boat duty. Steering is light and predictable, reducing fatigue on long drives.

Unfortunately, the QX80’s approximately three tons of bulk makes handling a chore. Body roll is heavy, especially without the optional hydraulic suspension. The light steering is clumsy and inefficient at low speeds. Perhaps worst of all, with all-wheel drive equipped, the V8 struggles to get more than a combined 15 miles per gallon. In this day and age, that’s atrocious.

Style

Style is a strong point for the QX80. The 2019 model sees a welcome facelift, which introduces sleek headlights and an imposing mesh grille. The profile is pleasantly boxy, and the rear has been reshaped into an appealingly modern form. The interior is just as impressive. Coated in leather and boasting exceptional finish, it’s a wonderful place to spend time. The seats are supportive, and the front two rows are spacious enough for taller adults. Features are competitive as well, with nice touches like the power-folding third row, which expands cargo capacity to more than 25 cubic feet.

With just 28.8 inches of leg room, however, the third row is best suited for children. Hard plastics still peek through in places, which cheapens the feel just a hair. Worst of all is the infotainment system. It’s low-resolution and clunky, incapable of supporting Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, and glaringly out of place among modern competitors.

The Best and Worst Things

The QX80 sticks to the genre-defining formula that made SUVs so successful: size, comfort, and style. If it could only bring its powertrain (and infotainment) up to date, it would be hard to turn down.

Right For? Wrong For?

INFINITI QX80

The QX80 is right for family buyers who prefer to travel in comfort. The cabin and the handling are best appreciated in long, straight lines, and the exterior will ensure that you make an impression on arrival.

Buyers with more modern tastes will be disappointed. Other than active safety, technology integration is not the QX80’s strong point. “Efficiency” is not even in its vocabulary.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 INFINITI QX80 remains a tempting purchase for the right buyer. The styling alone will stand out in a crowd, and the interior is up there with the best. But while the QX80 has done well to keep up with modern features, it still feels inescapably dated. Even large cars are getting nimbler and more economical, and it seems likely that the QX80 will soon be left behind.
