2014 Infiniti QX80: Remains Unchanged

Aside from the new found name, there is nothing new to boast about the 2014 Infiniti QX80 and the only worthy addition that company has made to its most selling SUV for 2014 is back up collision intervention which is also more of technology based rather than styling based. For the competitive market of 2014 SUVs, Infiniti has failed to meet the expectations and has kept its entire line up pretty much the same. In such a scenario, we completely excuse you for not knowing what exactly the 2014 Infiniti QX80 has in store for you to get excited about. The only major replacement for 2105 is the replacement of name which was previously called QX56. Despite going under several name changes in recent years, you will still find 2014 Infiniti QX80 an appealing sports utility vehicle to look forward.

This year as well Infiniti is scoring high with its 400 horsepower V8 engine, which makes this deluxe SUV an admirable option and with its impeccable towing capacity of 8,500 pounds the 2014 Infiniti QX80 becomes even more desirable. Besides that, there are classy interiors to applaud and humble seating capability which can be summarized in either eight seats or seven seat vehicle depending on how you are utilizing the space. Rich looking luxury interiors and use of cutting edge technology have always been a plus point for Infiniti and remains the same for 2014 Infiniti QX80 as well. As always, there is no lacking for Infiniti in safety department as well and has a full gamut of active as well as passive safety systems, with the new inclusion of collision mitigation system which is completely optional for various trim levels. This big SUV from Infiniti for 2014 lives up to the company’s heritage and offers reasonable athletic moves which make its handling smooth.

While these are the most praiseworthy and undeniable features of Infiniti that come with the package, some you might find it difficult to overcome the shortcomings 2014 Infiniti QX80 is accompanied with. The fuel economy of 5.6 liter V8 engine is lack luster if compared to others in the class and unlike its rivals, Infiniti fails to offer more competitive and efficient engine options. Even if you go for bigger 22 inch wheels, you will find that the ride has become stiffer and too harsh to handle. Moreover, the third row seats are meant only for adult kids and are not comfortable enough for adults to settle down.

Because of the lack of anything new if compared to rivals, we would suggest you take a look at other better available options, wherein Mercedes Benz GL class tops the list, although it will be a little harsh on your pocket, but it will definitely come with luxurious ambience and excellent fuel economy. Quick acceleration and spacious third row seats also make Mercedes Benz GL class a better alternative to 2014 Infiniti QX80. Other viable options include 2014 Lexus LX 570 and 2014 Cadillac Escalade because both are known for their excellent off road ability.

2014 Toyota Sequoia

While there is a fair share of customers who would drool over the crossovers that are in rage today, there still remain a whole lot of customers that would never compromise with their tastes for a conventional truck-like SUV. There is a sort of old world charm about these humungous vehicles, their strength like Hercules, to tow up a million pounds and their amazing capacity to seat a fair number of passengers. No crossover, no matter how big, can provide the same essence of a traditional SUV. The Toyota Sequoia is one such traditional SUV. Built on an enhanced version of the platform that underpins the Toyota Tundra, the 2014 Toyota Sequoia is a perfect blend of power and sophistication.

The eight-seater is powered by a 5.7 liter V8 engine. The grunt produces about 381 ponies which is a fine amount of power for a vehicle this size, along with 401 pound feet of torque. The transmission mated to the engine of the 2014 Toyota Sequoia is a six speed automatic, coupled to a rear wheel drive. Since the SUV is truck-based, an available four wheel drive model with low range gearing is somewhat like a protocol. The monstrous SUV takes a sprint time of merely 6.7 seconds to accelerate from rest to 60 mph, which is pretty quick for a vehicle in this niche. The fuel economy for a rear wheel drive model is rated at 15 mpg combine, and that for all wheel drive is 14 mpg combined, sadly low. The 2014 Toyota Sequoia offers its driver with an impressive and vigorous acceleration and its engine drives amazingly smooth, to a lot of people’s surprise. The beast carries strength to tow up to a whopping 7,400 pounds. The handling is fine and the ride, comfortable.

The comfort that the SUV offers doesn’t come from just the ride quality it sports, but also from the spacious cabin and the seating inside the vehicle that is as roomy as to comfortably accommodate eight passengers. Available in three trim levels viz. the SR5, Limited and Platinum, the 2014 Toyota Sequoia comes fairly well equipped even at the base level. As the luxury quotient of the SUV rises up, in all its glory, a 2014 Toyota Sequoia offers features and comfort that are comparable to a lot of luxury sedans. The interiors sport fine quality material and elegant styling, thus balancing the truck based genesis of the SUV. The infotainment system has been upgraded for this model year and that remains the only change in the 2014 Toyota Sequoia as compared to the last model year.

For those who don’t feel much need of a vehicle as heavy duty as a 2014 Toyota Sequoia, there are other options available in the market, such as the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse, which too, is a three row crossover. Or if you look for a vehicle even more powerful that the Sequoia, the 2014 Infiniti QX80 is more beastly, more luxurious and more athletic. However, the 2014 Toyota Sequoia is a perfect choice for old school SUV lovers.

The 2014 Infiniti QX80

Infiniti QX80 is the newly named 2014 avatar of the Infinity QX56 from last year. One of the best full sized SUV in its niche, the Infiniti QX80 virtually has it all to qualify as the best when one talks about a big, powerful vehicle that looks just at appealing as it rides. The 2014 Infiniti QX80, for the very reason of being super amazing in the first place, remains unchanged for this model year, despite a little addition in its safety system. Back-up Collision Intervention would be the unfamiliar little thing when you lay hand on this year’s Infiniti QX80.

While the beast offers humungous power, rating at around 400 ponies, it keeps the strength of Hercules, towing a whopping 8,500 pounds at once. All the muscle comes from the V8 that sits under the hood of this plush 2014 Infiniti QX80. Just as the strength of the vehicle leaves one in awe, the interiors stand equally breathtaking. Classy and sophisticated, the interior of the 2014 Infiniti QX80 is capable of making at least a sum of 6 people, to enjoy its luxurious ride, together. And since the vehicle seems to be on a spree of acing in every other attribute how could it possible lag behind when it comes to safety. Every possible safety technology one can ever need can be found in at once in the 2014 Infiniti QX80, along with the newly added, back-up collision improvement system.

The entire rumble for an Infiniti Qx80 comes from a 5.6 liter eight cylinder engine, which readily produces about 400 horses and 413 pound feet of twist. The V8 is mated to a seven speed automatic transmission which is standard for the 2014 Infiniti QX80; as is the rear wheel drive. The deluxe sports ute comes with an optional four wheel drive as well. The SUV is capable of reaching a speed of 60 mph from rest in a sprint time of 6.8 seconds, which, as a matter of fact, is quite impressive for a vehicle that big. Even the EPA ratings of this luxury SUV do not fail to impress with a combined 16 mpg that is 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway.

The 2014 Infiniti QX80 comes with a fully equipped cabin that is pure delight to look at. The supreme quality materials gone into the making of the interiors of 2014 QX80 surely mark their presence. While the amazing array of gauges and bells and a monitor bring pleasure to those who are in love with technology, the amazingly simple user interface helps those who’re not into it all that much.

2014 Infiniti QX80 impressively justifies its brand name by being amazingly athletic. The buttery smooth shifts, strong acceleration and the agility of a ninja all packs into one brawny vehicle called the Infiniti QX80 that stands proud on 22 inches wide wheels. While the SUV faces a fair amount of competition with models like the Mercedes Benz GL Class and the Escalade or even the 2014 Lexus LX 570, the Infiniti QX80 has something about it.
