Full on Luxury, Full on Adventure, That’s Infiniti QX80 for You!

To keep repeating success is a great thing. However, it needs to have a different flavor, different attitude each time. There have to be some new accomplishments, some new talking points and some new attractions. That is when the miracle of repeating success gets a new charm. So, while a vehicle brand may have a lot of creations to its credit but it needs to work really hard to make sure that it produces a different magic every time. It is not really a pressure game but it is simply important to keep people talking and amazed at the same time. Talking about amazement, here’s presenting the upcoming Infiniti QX80 2015 that is a gorgeous blend of luxury and adventure. For everyone who has a thing for luxury is sure to lose their hearts to this one and for those who never give sports utility vehicle a break will give in to its energy. It is as if this is what the world had been waiting for. So, there, Infiniti QX56 was a hit too but the company has beautifully delivered a machine that is sure to repeat its success saga. Just the thing we were talking about.

What makes the upcoming Infiniti QX80 superb, you ask. Well, from looks to performance, there is everything that you need to sweep you off your feet. Let’s take it one by one. Talking about the engine first – this one comes fitted with an amazing 5.6 liter V-8 engine. It generates around 400 horsepower, making it one hell of a powerhouse. It is just what all of us secretly fantasize about. However, there are experts who don’t forget to mention that this one is likely to feed greedily on power, perhaps more than expected. However, that is a risk most people are willing to take and find out, for there are so many other things to look forward to. If the EPA rankings are to be believed, it is likely to deliver 14 mpg on city roads and approximately 20 mpg if one hits the highway. The cumulative number rests around 16 mpg and it is far from disappointing, considering what other SUVs have to offer, not to forget that this one is a tremendously unique affair.

Let’s move on to the exteriors of the upcoming Infiniti QX80 2015 which have been very tastefully designed to impress and kill! There is a wonderful play of chrome. The frame is extremely stylish and the features, very innovative. What else will you call a feature called backup collision intervention! There are side mirrors that are power-operated and the front lights are jazzy, too – these are carefully chosen Xenon high density!

The upcoming Infiniti QX80 2015 comes fitted with two rows of seats in the back and there is ample room for a family. So, there is all the glamour that you ever wanted, the sturdiness too and there is no reason you should let your excitement rest for this one!


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.

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.

The 2014 Infiniti QX70

Infiniti rebadged its sporty FX midsized crossover range including the V6 powered FX37 and V8 engined FX50 as the QX70 as a part of the manufacturers new Q-based nomenclature system. The new sports beauty is due in late 2015 or early the following year. Proudly maintaining the bold styling of its predecessors the 2014 Infiniti QX70 will be the crossover’s third iteration. The changed name is no reason to be fooled for apart from the new moniker, the QX70 still remains identical to the last years FX and hence is still one of the most drover-focused crossovers in the market all credits to the platform shared with the agile and sporty Nissan 370Z sports car. A few welcome changes, however, will include more interior space in order to alleviate one of the main drawbacks of the current model. Along with that a cushier cabin is also a plus point for the new SUV.

For a change, it is sometimes alright to judge a book by its cover. The new QX70’s muscular lines and aggressive stance speaks all about the crossover and suggests that this little monster is all about performance and it certainly carries under its metal veils just the right stuff to back up that impression. Strengthened by a version of the RWD-based architecture shared by the 370Z, the QX70 is nimble with its responses to control inputs and offers a taut, yet not uncomfortable ride. Offering its customers a choice between couple of stout powerplants, QX70 comes in a standard and an optional engine variation. The standard motor which is a 3.6 liter V-6 engine generates 325 horsepower and 267 pound feet of torque. The optional engine is a 5.0 liter V8 which elevates the output by 65 generating about 390 ponies and impressive 369 pound feet of twist which, in fact, is enough to cruise up the vehicle to 60 mph from rest in a sprint time of just over 5 seconds. Both the engines are mated with a seven speed automatic transmission. While the V6 is based on rear wheel drive as standard but can be optioned with all-wheel drive, the V8 is available exclusively with all wheel drive. Fuel economy for the FWD V6 and AWD V6 is rated as 17/24 city/highway mpg and 16/22 mpg respectively while the V8 returns 14/20 mpg.

On the inside, the new QX70 welcomes its passengers with a sybaritic cabin manifested with plush materials like soft leather, brushed aluminum and genuine wood trim. Since there is no iDrive-style infotainment controller, conventional buttons flourish. Sadly, offering just 24 cubic feet of trunk room, which is less than some “compact” crossovers like the Honda CR-V, a compromised cargo space disappoints. However, folding the rear seats down, swells up the storage to 62 cubic feet!

Both the versions come with a myriad of additional optional feature that help customize the 2014 Infiniti QX70 according to its owner. Once unique among luxury crossovers due to its wild styling over interior space, the QX70 now competes with even more radically styles “coupe-crossovers” like the BMW X6 and Acura ZDX.

All New 2015 Cadillac Escalade

This is the all new fourth generation of Cadillac’s default flagship. The fully redesigned Cadillac Escalade, which looks to reclaim some ground for the signature SUV that was once a leading vehicle in its segment. The 2015 Cadillac Escalade defines new level of luxury to the fourth generation of the brand’s largest and most daunting vehicle. Holding its roots firm to the old school Cadillac grounds the new Cadillac Escalade is massive and without any compromises. The new SUV from Cadillac is less a truck and more a caddy with a V8 and has been dramatically transformed in design and quality and will be much differentiated from the related Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon models.

The 2015 Escalade is offered both as a conventional sport utility vehicle and the plush, extra long eight-seat Escalade ESV version. On the outside, the new Cadillac Escalade retains what the Escalade has always been about. A humungous sport utility vehicle that shares quite some amount of its basic structure and running gear with its Chevy and GMC siblings! However, what completely transforms the new Escalade is the strikingly new and improved technology and material. The 2015 Cadillac Escalade is big and it is bold. The luxury SUV sports clear and classy lines and a full LED lighting rear and front façade. With aluminum hood and tailgate, the Escalade uses active grille shutters to significantly reduce the drag and effectively increase the fuel efficiency for the massive sports ute. Coming standard with 20 inch wheels, the Escalade also gives an option of 22 inch. While the extended ESV Escalade is 224 inches long the standard 2015 Cadillac Escalade is a modest 204 inches. The beasts can tow from 7,700 to 8,200 pounds, depending upon the configuration.

Talking about the power, the standard 2015 Escalade is powered by a 6.2 liter V-8 engine generating massive 420 horsepower. The engine produces a whopping 460 pond feet of torque and is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. A new addition is the direct fuel injection and cylinder shut-off that translated to better fuel efficiency. Just like its predecessors, 2015 Cadillac Escalade comes in rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions. On the inside, the new Cadillac Escalade looks amazingly classy and sophisticated an impressive choice among various accents.

The 2015 Cadillac Escalade will debut this fall and is expected to be priced at about $65,000 and above. The masculine and gigantic luxury SUV will be a direct competition to the GMC Yukon Denali, Infiniti QX80 and the Mercedes Benz GL-Class.
