2020 Infiniti QX80 Performance

2020 Infiniti QX80 Performance Review


Performance: 7.3

The 2020 Infiniti QX80 features a brawny V8 engine, and it delivers a serene ride. Its handling may not feel sporty, but this big SUV maintains control around curves. On the downside, fuel economy estimates are poor, even in such a gas-guzzling class.

  • "This all works well enough that the 2018 Infiniti QX80 doesn't feel like a body-on-frame vehicle with the usual sideways shake on rough and crumbled roads. Like the old model, the new one is the most comfortable competitor in the big luxury SUV segment, and was able to handle the gentle sweeping curves … with good body control." -- Automobile Magazine (2019)
  • "From behind the wheel of the 2017 Infiniti QX80, you soon begin to feel invincible. With each mile you feel coddled, cradled and comfortable, but most of all, you feel ... invincible." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • "… the QX80 is a full-size luxury SUV that features a traditional body-on-frame layout. This design lets the utility back up its rugged looks with excellent towing and off-roading capabilities, although it also features surprisingly competent handling on the pavement as well." -- Left Lane News (2018)

Acceleration and Power

Every QX80 has a 400-horsepower 5.6-liter V8 engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission. This potent pairing delivers power smoothly. Acceleration is quick, though some of the QX80’s competitors get up to speed a little faster. The automatic transmission hesitates to downshift at times.

The QX80 gets fuel economy estimates of 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway, which are poor for a luxury large SUV.

  • "As for acceleration, the 5.6-liter V8 offers stellar performance, responding instantly to throttle input and delivering a sweet, low rumble that is music to a V8 lover's ears." -- Autotrader
  • "In our testing, the 400-hp 5.6-liter V-8 and seven-speed automatic transmission launched the three-ton Infiniti from zero to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds. While that's speedy for its size, every other competitor we tested was even quicker. Still, we loved the engine's smooth power delivery and snappy throttle response. Too bad it was hard to hustle it along on the highway, with a transmission that hesitated to downshift. Otherwise, it galloped around town with grace, its exhaust note growling after heavy-footed accelerator applications." -- Car and Driver
  • "While some may take exception with the way the 2019 Infiniti QX80 looks, few will take issue with the way it drives. The big 5.6-liter V8 pumps out 400 horsepower, a feat that requires copious amounts of gas, but in return delivers strong acceleration for passing, merging or just showing off." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Handling and Braking

The QX80 provides a supple ride, and few road flaws transfer into the cabin. This Infiniti is not the sportiest choice in its class, but it feels balanced around turns, especially if you opt for the Hydraulic Body Motion Control system. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and four-wheel drive is available.

  • "This is one of the better-handling large SUVs. Unlike the Lexus LX 570, the QX80 doesn't feel large. Instead, its steering effort is light and direct, with good feedback in fast curves. The optional Hydraulic Body Motion Control system helps the QX80 avoid the tippy feeling commonly found in large vehicles with a high center of gravity." -- Autotrader
  • "In our hands, the QX80's ride was highlighted by its comfort, especially compared with the rougher rides of rivals from General Motors. Still, the Infiniti felt less athletic than the GLS450, the GMC Yukon, and the Cadillac Escalade. While those alternatives had more direct steering, the QX80's light helm was friendly around town and steady on the highway. If you're looking for a mega-luxury SUV with sharper driving dynamics, you should look elsewhere, but the Infiniti's serene character will satisfy buyers who want to be coddled." -- Car and Driver
  • "For its size, the QX80 handled well, a sensation enhanced by clear outward visibility. I never felt as though it was too big for its lane (even though at times it was)." -- New York Daily News (2018)
